    the giants have played in 3 of the last 13 superbowls, winning 2 of them,,so basically one every 4 seasons, not too shabby.

    We should give away Fewell and Gilbride too. I wouldn't mind that.
    Kansas City and Jacksonville will win 9 Super Bowls between them.
    For a Giant fan that I personally knew: My mom. May she smile and be delighted whenever her favorite player - Victor Cruz - scores a touchdown and does his salsa dance.

    Thank you mom for everything! Let's Go Giants!

    Belichick has only had success as a head coach when he had Brady. Other than that his track record isn't great.

    What Coughlin did with Jacksonville was pretty impressive though.

    Only had success with brady? thats a foolish thing to say. The guy wins. period.

    It's not like we had them on our coaching staffs.
    Oh, wait a minute..............
    We wouldn't have beaten the Patriots twice in the Super Bowl?

    Wellington always watched out for the growth of his guys. He actually recommended Lombardi for the Green Bay job in 1959. Landry was picked for the expansion Dallas Cowboys in 1960.

    Not sure what you mean by "ineffective", since the team was in the championship game in 56, 58, and 59. Maybe you mean when he was fired from Dallas in 1989.

    That's not at all how it happened.

    Bill Parcells quit very late in the offseason (after BB & TC had already left -- for Cleveland and Boston College, respectively). He quit AFTER rookie mini camp in late May, leaving literally nobody to take his place and no time to bring in a new staff. Handley was just one of the few guys left and as much as he sucked he stepped up and took the job.

    Bill Parcells screwed this team on his way out, never forget that.

    Brady was out for the year in 2008 and they went 11-5 (but missed the playoffs)

    As for BB's time in Cleveland, when they fired him they moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens and were a conference powerhouse in a few short years. They actually came very close to critical mass under Belichick. I think NFL Network did a look back on all the pieces that were there and how close a near miss it was.
