The Penalty Flag:
If there ever was a hot seat that was hotter than the sun, it had to be Tom Coughlin’s seat. Tom Coughlin has always been brought up in discussions of losing his job and no longer being the coach for the New York Giants. You hear the rumors that Bill Cowher is waiting for the Giants coaching job to come open, and that this is the season Coughlin will be fired. Giants fans send in letters to the Mara family calling for Coughlin to be fired, the media always says Coughlin could be fired every time the Giants lose four or five games in a row. Yet through it all, and even with better coaches out there that could take over the Giants, the Giants stay course. They have stood by Coughlin through thick and thin and now it has paid off. Tom Coughlin, who very well could be the most underrated Head Coach in the NFL, has now led the Giants to two Super Bowl victories and it just shows that patience is a virtue and is why the Giants have done what they have done in Super Bowl 42 and 46. Let’s go back to week eleven where [...]

The story of how Coughlin transformed into a beloved coach headed to his second Super Bowl
Tom Coughlin did not bring in any inspirational speakers to address the Giants this week. Unless you count Phil Collins.

Now that New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has secured his second Super Bowl in four seasons, you would think that he’d be ready to retire at he age of 65, think again.

INDIANAPOLIS — The coach who felt tough love was the only way to drive a team learned he could drop the tough and show the love.

The New York Giants are Super Bowl Champions, once again defeating the New England Patriots in dramatic, come-from-behind fashion for the second time in four years. It also earned much-maligned Tom Coughlin his second title as head coach of the Giants, cementing his status in franchise history.
And naturally, the comparisons to another Giants coaching legend, Bill Parcells, have...
I Yes, magic still exists in the big city. A few months ago they were ready to ride Tom Coughlin out on a rail. Today theyll be strewing rose petals in his path.
Indianapolis â Ramses Barden knows itâs coming. Itâs the conversation â a brief one, probably, sometime Saturday night or Sunday â when Tom Coughlin tells him that heâll not be playing in the Super Bowl. He knows itâs coming, but that wonât make it hurt any less.
If Bill Belichick is a genius, what does that make Tom Coughlin? Belichick had been 3-0 as Super Bowl coach until he ran into Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants.

INDIANAPOLIS — Giants coach Tom Coughlin joked that he only got about 15 minutes of sleep last night and the same was probably true for quarterback Eli Manning.

Even amid the euphoria of a second Super Bowl title, Coughlin...
New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin has never won the NFL's coach of the year award. Quarterback Eli Manning has never been the league's MVP. With two Super Bowl victories in the past five seasons, though, they have emerged as the NFL's top coaching-quarterback tandem. And the best might be yet to come.
Hey dumbass, salsa dancing in Boston will get you killed in 2012. That security guard is to this jersey-wearer as Eli Manning is to Tom Coughlin's head coaching career. [Follow me @TravisHouser]
There are two lessons to be learned from the Patriots-Giants Super Bowl yesterday. One is that receivers are as important to the passing game as quarterbacks (Patriots receivers let the team down yesterday). The second and more important lesson is the value of standing beside your man. This lesson applies to the Washington Redskins and Mike Shanahan.
Bill Belichick has been the...
