    TOM COUGLIN HAS NO PLANS TO RETIRE, EVEN F THE GIANTS WIN THE SUPER BOWL

    TOM COUGLIN HAS NO PLANS TO RETIRE, EVEN F THE GIANTS WIN THE SUPER BOWL

    "There's been much speculation this season about the status of New York
    Giants head coach Tom
    Coughlin
    . If he failed to make the playoffs, would the team fire him? What
    would be enough to save his job? And if he won it all, would he retire?


    All of those questions have now been answered.




    Following his seventh playoff road victory, tying legendary coach Tom Landry
    for the most in NFL history,
    Coughlin received quite a bit of support from owner John Mara, who laughed at
    the notion of the coach ever being on the hot seat.





    "Tell you what, I've got a stack of letters on my desk (that say) 'Fire Tom
    Coughlin
    '. I look forward to responding to them," Mara said. "I held on to
    them, waiting for the right time to respond. I think this might be the right
    time."




    And retirement? Win or lose, that's not happening either.





    "I feel good … I still love what I do," Coughlin said. "Retire to do
    what?"




    Coughlin may be one of the most underrated coaches in the entire league. He's
    consistently successful and gets the most out of his players. For anyone that's
    actually watched the Giants this year, it's obvious the team loves playing for
    him – just watch the postgame celebration after they defeated the New England
    Patriots in week nine or the embrace with Brandon Jacobs during the Atlanta
    Falcons wildcard game.




    The Giants and their fans should consider themselves lucky to have such a
    high caliber coach, and would benefit from him sticking around for many years to
    come.




    With a year remaining on his current contract, it's almost a certainty that
    he gets an extension during the offseason."

    thank god he's not retiring.

    we have a chance at a dynasty at this point.

    why would we want another head coach now?

    When the GIANTS say ALL IN, they mean ALL. John Mara is a pretty stand up guy it seems to me and his comment about the "Fire TC" letters says it all.

    Because a pass was dropped or a play wasn't executed properly []

    the maras continue to prove why their way of doing things is better.

    This SB journey NEVER happens if people calling for TC, or even Fewel's head were running this team.

    there's no more potent lesson from the 2011 season than continuity and sticking with your man turns out better than the revolving door head coach franchises.
