The ax has come down on Josh Freeman. Unless Greg Schiano gets a quick personality transplant, his head is next to go in Tampa Bay.
That could actually be best for everyone. Schiano could go back to college, where his rigid approach might find an audience. The Bucs could find a coach who realizes there's a time and place to be a hard nose.
That time isn't every waking second, and that place isn't the NFL.
The mere notion upsets millions of hard-working types who say, "For the money they make, pros should take crap from the coach. And if they don't like it, they can just drop and do 100 one-armed pushups."
That's simply not how it works. Pros don't mind being bossed around, as long as they think the boss has a clue. If not, they can do what college players can't - tune out.
Right now, Schiano opens his mouth and players hear only "BZZZZZ!" It doesn't help his credibility when he says, "Josh is our starter."
That was ...

At age 67, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has indicated that he has no immediate plans of retiring anytime soon, but since getting off to an 0-3 start in 2013, one cannot help but wonder if Coughlin may reconsider this decision at year's end. Should Coughlin decide to call it quits, it is highly unlikely that either offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride or defensive...
This has been the worst season for Tom Coughlin since he took over as head coach for the New York Giants in January, 2004. It’s the Giants worst season start since 1996. Week 3 just added to the dismal season they have encountered, getting shut out 38-0 by the Carolina Panthers. The worst start to season in Coughlin’s tenure mixed with the worst defeat in the same period of time...
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul says they’re in a must-win situation as they get ready to face the undefeated Chiefs this weekend.
“I can sit here and kid around, (say) it’s a must-win situation, but that’s been thrown around for a while now,” said Pierre-Paul, via the New York Daily News. “We need to win this game. And I’m pretty sure we’ll come out...
Tom Coughlin is certainly no stranger to being on the hot seat as the head coach of the New York Giants since taking the job back in January of 2004.
In his 10th season with the team, he’s felt the hot seat in at least three different seasons; he was nearly fired after the 2006 season after an 8-8 campaign and had to tell John Mara and Steve Tisch why he should be able to stay...
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin took the podium for his weekly Wednesday press conference in a very animated mood. It shifted from annoyance and anger to playful ribbing of the reporters. However, the repeated questions about injuries obviously got under his skin as he attempted to get all the answers out of the way from the onset.
There were a grand total of 10 players on...
Nicks is thinking about his next contract, so besides taking the L, if his stats fall off, he is worried he might not get a monster deal.

New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks says “it’s all good” between he and quarterback Eli Manning. Nicks, who was targeted once on Sunday and ended the game against the Carolina Panthers without a catch,
After a 38-0 loss to the Carolina Panthers, the New York Giants are promising only one change for this weekend's game in Kansas City against the Chiefs.
There is going to be an attitude adjustment.
Win or lose, the Giants (0-3) aren't going to have another no-show performance against the Chiefs (3-0).
An upbeat Tom Coughlin is promising a more physical team. And if practice...
The Giants have never started worse than 5-3 in nine seasons under Tom Coughlin, and they’ve been 6-2 or better in seven of those years. They...
Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas was listed on the pre-practice injury report with a knee injury.
Head coach Tom Coughlin says they’ll manage Thomas’ knee.
Terrell Thomas (knee) has to be "managed," Coughlin said. Sounds like he'll only be able to practice once a week. #NYG

Tom Coughlin is not the only hot name in the NFL who could be on the hot seat at the end of the season. The NFC East has basically become the NFC Least with both the Giants and Redskins still looking for their first wins of the season. The Redskins, whose offense seems to be moving forward and its defense still cannot get out of reverse, have a lot to work on as well.The issues with...
