    You are rewriting history . Parcells screwed the Giants by packing his bags in the middle of the night like a spoiled child who didn't get his way and blindsided the team. It was Parcells who suggested they promote Handley in May, long after every possible available HC was already in place. There is no doubt that Handley was a poor choice, but there were not many alternatives. Both Coughlin and Belichick had moved on by that time..

    I'd like to think 4 rings.

    Fair enough. But did he wait until may on purpose, or did he just feel as though he didn't have enough control over the team and make a snap decision like that?

    It's not going to be another 17 years lol....Coughlin needs to trim fat better on the roster. We are only a few draft picks away from being in the playoff mix again.

    Even if Coughlin and Eli dont win another Super Bowl Id say they had a very successful era

    He made it a pattern to bail on teams, Miami and Dallas being good examples, but I think he pretty much walked away unexpectedly from every team he has been a part of, be it as a HC or a front office guy. Hell, he even took the Bucs job, and then changed his mind at the last second, leaving them high and dry. He practically had the pen in his hand to sign the deal
