    GIANTS' JOHN MARA: I NEVER LOST FAITH IN TOM COUGHLIN

    GIANTS' JOHN MARA: I NEVER LOST FAITH IN TOM COUGHLIN

    "Stability is a staple of success for any NFL team. Organizations such as the New York
    Giants
    , Pittsburgh Steelers, and New
    England Patriots
    have been some of the most successful franchises in sports
    throughout the last decade; and continuity within those franchises has been a
    major contributing factor to each team's success.


    Today, in an interview with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Giants President and CEO
    John Mara expressed how his philosophy of continuity has benefited the
    organization as a whole.





    “The worst thing you can do is be impatient and make quick decisions based
    on pressure from the media or pressure from the fans. You have to have a
    conviction that you have the right people working for you and then you have to
    give them a chance to do their job. You’ve got to be able to stay with them when
    things aren’t going quite so well. Fortunately we’ve been able to do
    that.




    Throughout the last several offseason's, Big Blue's front office has time and
    time again demonstrated its ability to stay objective in its decision making
    process. Most notably, last season when the team was struggling, many fans were
    calling for the team to fire head coach Tom
    Coughlin
    .




    However, both John Mara and general manager Jerry
    Reese
    provided nothing but support to the embattled head coach as the team
    went on to win its' second Super
    Bowl
    in five season. Mara commented on that specific situation during his
    interview with Francesa.





    “I never lost faith in Tom [Coughlin]. I knew he was a good head coach. I
    knew he could win for us. It was just a question of us providing him with the
    right players and getting a break here and there and being able to stay healthy
    and fortunately we’ve been able to do that. And obviously we’re very pleased
    with the way things have turned out.”




    Team's such as the Oakland
    Raiders
    , Miami
    Dolphins
    , and St. Louis
    Rams
    that have seen a revolving door at the head coach position throughout
    the last decade coincidentally have been bottom dwellers in the NFL for the past
    several seasons. The Giants are fortunate not only to have a coach like Tom
    Coughlin
    as part of their organization, but they are also fortunate to have
    a man like Tom Coughlin lead the team week in and week
    out.




    John Mara knows this better than anybody. His patience and objectivity have
    been major factors not only in Big Blue's recent success, but in the New York
    Giants
    being widely recognized as a first-class organization by owners,
    coaches, players, and fans alike."

    It really does start with ownership setting the tone of stability and confidence.....teams like the Steelers, Giants, and Patriots, for example.

    That is why the Giants are a class organization because of men like Mara.
