    Is Coughlin better Giants Coach than Parcells?



    Alot of similarities.




    Playoff record, 8-3 vs. 7-3




    i'm wondering if the opponents tip the scales on this one.




    Should be a good discussion now.

    Maybe from a coaching standpoint, but keep in mind the Parcells accomplishments goes beyond coaching. He turned a horrible Pats team into contenders. He turned the Cowboys team around. He turned the Dolphins team around.




    So imo, Parcells has done a lot more.

    Career wise there's no comparison.




    What about from a Giants perspective.




    Who was the better Giants coach?

    Maybe Coughlin because during the Parcells era you could actually play defense.

    Gotta go with Tuna. The division and the conference was much tougher than it is now. We went into SF this year and won, but when Parcells did that it was with his backup QB against the 2time defending SB champs (maybe one of the best teams of alltime the year before.)

    Parcells is still more accomplished:

    3 SB Appearances with 2 different teams.
    2 SB wins
    1 extra Championship appearance (w/ Jets)
    Rebult 4 clubs (Giants, Pats, Jets, Cowboys), 3 of which were one or two win teams when he took them over.
    Playoff appearances with 4 different teams.
    Championship appearances with 3 different teams.

    The fact that Parcells didn't get into the HoF this year was a travesty (especially with Marv Levy in there) and a testament to how many feathers he's ruffled.

    Having said that, Tom is right up there.

    2 SB wins
    2 extra Championship games
    Built an expansion team from the ground up
    Championship appearances with 2 different teams.

    doesn't that line up pretty equally with beating a 18-0 Pats team in the SB?

    Having lived through both, Tuna's teams were definitely more dominant overall.

    This Giants team has a more prolific offense however.

    It'd be close. I think I still give it to Tuna because he did one SB with a backup QB.

    But very close at this point.
