    There's more:




    Parcells and Coughlingot his team in the playoffs aftertheir respectivefirstyears which was a losing record(i.e. in his second year as coach). Coughlin won the division, Parcells got a wildcard spot.fficeffice" />>>




    Parcells and Coughlin got his team in the playoffs in their respective third years as coach. Parcells won the division, Coughlin got the wildcard spot.>>




    Parcells won the Super Bowl in hisfourth year as head coach w/ a bye and home field throughoutand Coughlin won the Super Bowl in his fourth year as head coachbutwon it as a wildcard road team.>>




    Parcells had a two year playoff drought after winning the Super Bowl but got back to the playoffs in the third year after the Super Bowl which included a division title and a#2 Seedonly to lose in their first playoff game. Coughlin followed up the Super Bowl win with another playoff appearance the following year which included a division title& a #1 Seed but also bowed out in their firstplayoff gameand then had, like Parcells his2season playoff absence.>>




    In the 4th season after both Parcells' and Coughlin's first Super Bowl win, both coaches got the team a Division title and a return back to the Super Bowl. Parcells won and hopefully Coughlin does too. Coughlin had to win 3 games, Parcells only two but both had1 playoff home game. Both beat the 49ers in SF to return back to the Super Bowl on a last second/sudden death FG set up by a fumblethat faced the same goalposts at Candlestickwhich was kicked through by two different kickers (Bahr and Tynes)that both wore #9.>>




    Both coaches had one 9-7 season that lead to playoffs. Both coaches have had 2 10-6 seasons one that lead to the playoffs (2007, 1985) and one that didn't (2010, 1988). After both coaches' 10-6 non-playoff appearance, the following yearboth coaches' teams won the division and hosted a playoff game.>>




    Differences of note[/B]: >>[/B]




    Parcells notched 4 Division titles and one wildcard spotin8 seasons. Coughlin has notched3 division titles and2 wildcard spotsin8 seasons. >>




    Parcells' one 10-6 playoff appearance got him a division title and one home playoff game while Coughlin's 10-6 season that lead to the playoffs only got him the road wild card spot.>>




    Both Coughlin's and Parcellsí non-playoff 10-6 season was ended because of a two-way 1st place tie-breaker with the Eaglesthat went against them. However, Parcells' 10-6 playoff appearance and division title was achieved because of a three-way 1st place tiebreaker with the Eagles and Cowboysthat went in his favor while Coughlinís 10-6 playoff season was achieved free and clear without tie-breakers but again only got him a road wild card spot (obviously that didnít matter).>>




    Coughlin has only had one losing season, his first. Parcells had two, his first and the strike shortened season the year after his first Super Bowl win (6-9). However, Coughlin finished 8-8 in 2006 and 8-8 in 2009. Parcells never finished 8-8.




    Parcells onlywon a Super Bowl as a #1 or #2 Seed. Coughlin has won one Super Bowl as a Wildcard team and hopefully he will again this year as a low seeded division champ. Parcells never even got to an NFC Title game without the 1 or 2 seed.




    Parcells got the 1 seed once as did Coughlin but Parcells alsogot the 2 seed twice while Coughlin has neverclinched a 2 seed. Parcells also won a Super Bowl as the 1 seed while Coughlin was knocked out inhis first and onlyplayoff game as the 1 seed.

    His true reasoning was that he wanted to gain control of the GM spot from George Young. Well at that time that just wasn't going to happen. So he said heneeded to quit due tohealth issues once Belichick left for the Browns head coaching job and TomCoughlin left for the Boston Collegehead coaching job and we got stuck with Ray Handley.

    No problem.




    PersonallyI think offensive coordinator RonErhardt should have gotten the head coaching job over Handley as he deserved a second chance after just missing the playoffs as head coach of the Pats for two of three seasons in '79, '80 and then a 2-14 stinker in '81(21-27 record)before he came to the Giants to be offensive coordinator.

    We had nothing but problems after BP left. Wish we did go RonErhardt. Would have been better than Handley hands down.
