    The Giants are a mediocre franchise

    Twenty years of mediocrity before Parcel's came along...what did owners and GM do? Ran him out of town...

    Under TC same o same o...with exception of one Superbowl that I credit to Spag's defense.

    Today, headed to our fourth year second half collapse under TC.

    Clean house from Reece down....find ownership that really takes action to create sustained excellence and sell the team

    Fans deserve more than we've gotten for the past 40 years!!!!

    Uh, no.

    Parcells tried to quit after the 1986 Super Bowl but the Giants wouldn't let him out of his contract.

    In 1990 he told people before the Super Bowl he was going to quit. Before the actual game. But he watched as all his assistants (including Belichick and Coughlin) left for other jobs, and quit on the Giants. AFTER rookie mini-camp, which left them with literally nobody to coach, and that's how Ray Handley got the job.

    Then he shows up in New England in 1993.

    Of course he screwed New England too. And then the Jets. And then the Cowboys. And then the Dolphins.

    Learn your history if you're going to use it to try to make a point.

    And really, you're going to complain about the Maras?

    Re: The Giants are a mediocre franchise

    Super Bowl in 2007, playoff contenders every year, very good QB for the foreseeable future. It could be A LOT worse!



    Jets-Never Win. Perennial losers. No championships since '69.
    Noone can argue, being a Giants fan has had a significantly better share
    of great games and wonderful memories!



    Eagles- Could you imagine if every single season that you watched you never once won a championship! I would be so miserable.



    Skins- Could you imagine how hard being a fan of their team for the last 10 years would be?



    Bills- ouch



    Cleveland- oh god



    Detroit- yup



    Chicago- you'd be posting about how you hate cutler and the
    terrible o'line and how sleepy Lovie smith looks on the sideline. Good
    in the 80's but that was a long time ago and nothing to note in the
    90's. 2000 was bland. Giants are better to root for!



    Colts- yep they are looking good. ALthough they have been
    kicking but with Manning and won a few Bowls, plus they had Unitas. It
    wouldnt be too bad rooting for them



    Rams- pretty glad i don't root for them! A little run with
    Warner but overall, a losing franchise and I'm happier to be rooting for
    big blue!



    Miami- Hows that going for you? nothing to get excited about
    since Marino and even he never won. Happier to root for the G-Men for
    sure!



    Cowboys- You would still be killing yourself over losing to the
    Giants and you would be questioning Romo's passion for the game on the
    message boards every day. If I had to see wade phillips in charge of my
    team on the sidelines for 5 years, I would have puked. They had some
    runs in the 90's and pretty good history but I'll take the Giants
    because of the playoof win in 2007 and a more recent super bowl!



    Cincinnati- dont think anyone can argue that we're in better shape then them



    Atlanta- another winless franchise



    New Orleans- yes, they look good now. Rooting for them is easy, they are dominating. But over the years they were a laughing stock.



    Pats- that would be nice but they went decades of being awful



    Pittsburgh- probably the best franchise to be a fan of in terms of consistency. I would be happy to be a fan



    Green Bay- Great franchise but had some gut wrenching playoff losses with Favre. Overall, great franchise.



    Minnesota- Another franchise that would make you a nut case-
    culppepr blowing it, Dennis Green (ugh), gary anderson missed field
    goal- I am much happier being a giants fan, plus we beat them to go to the
    super bowl in 2000. G-men are better to root for.



    Denver- had some good runs, they are fairly consistent but I
    think being a Giants fan is better because we beat them in the super
    bowl.



    Arizona- Perennial losers, they made a run but really this would be just simply painful to root for this team



    Kansas City- 10-15 years of futility you would be straight up miserable rooting for them



    Houston Texans- they've done nothing and they get smoked by the colts no playoffs....no doubt being a Giant fan is more fun



    San Diego-Talent and they lose, you would be asking for Norv Turners head on platter and ripping Rivers all day everyday



    Seattle- Please, what a dull team in NFL history. Big Blue is better to root for!



    49ers- I would have thrown up a lot of Sunday afternoons watching
    Alex Smith. They did rule the 80's and 90's and pretty good in the
    2000 with Jeff Garcia---Overall it wouldn't be horrible rooting for this
    team my whole life.



    Tampa Bay- Even with the super bowl in 2005 or whatever, this team is usually awful...Giants franchise is infinitely better.

    Ironically they were one of the NFL's doormats. Didn't even make the playoffs a single time from 1933-1972. Since then it's been slightly better

    Excellent analysis.

    How many of those teams are better than the giants? I can't imagine what it's like to be a hardcore Browns fan. Just sad.

    Re: The Giants are a mediocre franchise

    Coughlin restored pride to this Giants team. Unfortunately, the talent on the team has gotten old and/or soft.

    If Coughlin goes, I want to see alot of roster changes, because many of the guys that Reese has brought on board are overrated, soft, or both.

    so as a football fan you take a super bowl for granted. And you are obviously on Spagnulos jock...

    Re: The Giants are a mediocre franchise

    They are not bad. Had a bunch of NFL championships and then the only team to win a Bowl in the 80's 90's and 00's. Will it be the 10's as well? Who knows. But Do I bet the Gmen will be 10+ time champs by 2050? You bet.
    Sorry we cant be the NY Yankees. I would love to see the giants win 27 champions but the NFL is a much harder league to win in. I have seen the yankees win a lot but cmon I am also a Knicks fan. They havent been good at all in the 00's.
