Now that Tom Coughlin has won his second Super Bowl Title as the New York Giants Head Coach. I wanted to see how he compared with arguably the greatest head coach in Giants history; Bill Parcells.
When observing this topic on the surface, it would appear that Coughlin has a long way to go to be mentioned in the same breath as Bill Parcells.
However; a closer look would suggest that Coughlin is a lot closer to Parcells than you may think.

The story of how Coughlin transformed into a beloved coach headed to his second Super Bowl

Speaking early Monday morning at a news conference, the 65-year-old coach says he has every intention of returning to coach the team, although management will have a say in that.

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.

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.

According to the Associated Press, Coughlin says that he has every intention of returning to the Giants in 2012.
Before Sunday’s Super Bowl, the word around the Giants organization was that Coughlin is definitely...
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.
The New York Giants proved it's not how you start, but how you finish!You know, Eye On Sports readers, my father, the late, great track and field coach, George ‘Papa Bear’ Williams always told me, ‘It’s not how you start son, it’s how you finish’ and apparently, that’s a message that New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, has shared with his players since taking...
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. But that didn’t seem to matter, as both were riding the adrenaline from their 21-17 Super Bowl victory over the Patriots at this morning’s press conference.
Even amid the euphoria of a second Super Bowl title, Coughlin...

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.
Former NFL running back Ricky Williams has come out and cleared the air as to why he decided to retire.
Williams was asked why he retired and said, “That’s not the question. ‘Why am I playing?’ That’s the question. If I could do anything in the world, and it’s doable, why wouldn’t I do that?”
Football really hasn’t been fun for Williams since he decided to retire...
We have seen this act before. Ricky Williams announces his retirement, follows Lenny Kravitz around the world for a few months, and then returns to the NFL and remains relatively productive. Williams announced his retirement once again on Tuesday, but there are still plenty of people who believe he will change his mind. He was a successful compliment to Ray Rice in the Ravens running...
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...
