Just keep repeating that as if it means something. We know why.




A brighter bulb would make the connection between you and Coughlin.


Did the Browns give up on the season? Are they a better team than the Giants? Do they have more talent? Do they even have a better coach?


The only thing that is truly clear:


The Giants quit on Coughlin. The Browns didn't quit on Mangini, and haven't played a meaningful game since... when? November? October? September?

There's no connection between Coughlin and I; none at all. You're making one out of nothing because to you, it seems to make some sort of case.


Mangini may not survive as coach of the Browns, or maybe he's saved his job by beating the Steelers while they were free-falling (the Browns were the last loss in a 5-game losing streak), the awful Chiefs, the bad Raiders, and a Panthers team that had just been eliminated from the playoffs last week. We'll see.


Meanwhile, the Giants beat the two bad teams on their schedule as well, the Falcons and the Redskins. They also beat a good team: the Cowboys.


You also said they quit on Coughlin in 2006, and you wanted him fired.


The Giants never win the Super Bowl two years ago if you're in charge (as if an NFL team would ever put an emotional 8-year-old in charge).

Didn't listen, huh? Banks and Papa started wondering what the heck Coughlin was doing with these players, etc.


From the Albany paper:



The Giants: Pick an adjective (Updated)




Pick a word -- any word -- to describe this Giant embarrassment. (Associated Press)

Pick a word -- any word -- to describe this Giant embarrassment (Associated Press).



I’ll start.


Gutless. Embarrassing. Disinterested. Unprofessional.


The Minnesota Vikings lead the New York  Giants 41-0 in the third quarter. They went in playing this game for pride. It turns out they had none to wager.


Too harsh? Don’t think so.

A Giant Freefall: Is Tom Coughlin Done in New York?

Just a few months ago, the New York Giants were boasting a 5-0 record and sitting atop first place in the NFC East. 


It's amazing how quickly a season can go miserably down the toilet.


The Giants finished up their season Sunday with a half-hearted butt-kicking at the hands of the Minnesota Vikings, 44-7. 


Today's game, of course, was just a formality: The Vikings were already in the playoffs with a bye, while the Giants were eliminated the week before in a pathetic loss to the 8-8 Carolina Panthers.


Despite starting 5-0, the wins were not all impressive, save a 33-31 defeat of the Cowboys in Dallas. They then went on to lose eight of their next 11 games, giving up 40-plus points in five of those eight losses.


The Giants rank 28th in the league in terms of points allowed.


Not good, considering the Giants have been known as a defensive juggernaut in recent seasons.


In 2008, they were fifth in the league in points allowed and in total defense. The year before that, they ranked seventh in total defense en route to a stunning upset of the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl. 


Coughlin was rumored to be leaving a few seasons ago, actually early in the year they won the Super Bowl due to rocky relationships with players. That Super Bowl title may have actually saved his job.


So now, with a season that ended in such ugly fashion, you have to wonder if he still holds high enough favor with the front office to remain?


Last week, the Giants still had a shot at the postseason in a game against the Panthers at home. To say they didn't even show up would almost be a compliment. 


Somehow, the Panthers who had absolutely nothing to play for, completely annihilated the Giants 41-9, forcing four turnovers and out-rushing the Giants by nearly 200 yards.


This week could be interesting to see what moves if any the Giants front office makes. But we all know once you've tasted Super Bowl success, deviating too far from that glory can get you canned. 


Stay tuned!

My favorite part of the conference by Tom was where he BLAMED THE OFFENSE.
