Sunday night’s Giants-Cowboys game is a “win and in” scenario for the Giants, but one report claims it’s not a “win or else” scenario for Tom Coughlin. CBS Sports’ Charley Casserly reports that Coughlin will be back with the Giants in 2012 to fulfill the last year of his contract, no matter what happens Sunday night. Giants…

“I’ll think about it when I want to think about it”. That was Andy Reid’s response to the question of when he would start thinking about his future as the Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach. While it may have been a fair question to ask, Reid’s response was very understandable.
The media is seeking immediate responses after [...]
Andy Reid made the flashiest moves in the days after the lockout, even if one backfired just as the backup quarterback he signed entered Philadelphia Eagles camp training.
Trading quarterback Kevin Kolb to Arizona for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and a pick along with free-agent signings of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and defensive end Jason Babin were overshadowed by two...
Don't tell Andy Reid that Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins doesn't matter.
Saying he will play the game like any other, Reid confirmed today that running back LeSean McCoy will play despite injuring his ankle last week.
Some thought that McCoy might sit out as a precaution with the game meaning nothing. With McCoy now in the lineup, it is a safe bet...
In the ultimate statement game, Tom Coughlin may have been looking to make a statement Sunday night even before the opening kickoff.
The Giants won 10 games last year, but not the ones they needed in order to qualify for the playoffs. This season. they only won nine, but two of those wins were over the Dallas Cowboys – the team that turned out to be their direct competition for the NFC East title.
Instead of folding up their tent as the year wound down, the Giants retrained their minds to focus on finishing...
It wasn't even a year ago that Antrel Rolle was on a Miami radio station blasting Tom Coughlin's style of coaching, marveling at the "chemistry" that the Jets were showing, and insinuating that he would rather play for someone like Rex Ryan.
Praise for Tom Coughlin and Perry Fewell
The Giants are looking to make the playoffs for the first time since 2008, and perhaps secure Tom Coughlin's coaching job. The Cowboys are looking to return to the postseason after a one-year hiatus.
The Eagles nightmarish “Dream Team” season limps to an end Sunday as the Birds host the Redskins.
Little besides pride (and possibly Andy Reid’s job) is on the line in the season finale but that isn’t stopping out NBC10 football-picking experts from all backing the Birds to reach .500 and avoid their first losing season since 2005.
Eagles win 20-10, reporter Tim Furlong...
While the other team that occupies this stadium was doing a lot of backstabbing, the Giants were in a backslapping mood last night after dumping Jerry Jones’ Cowboys and taking the NFC East championship. Some quotes for your perusal….
“With my cleats on. That’s how I like to look at it, so yeah.”
- WR Victor Cruz when asked if he was really 6’1″
Tom Coughlin on Cruz…...
The concept of chemistry on a professional sports team is always a difficult one to fully wrap your head around.
Our current football landscape is a pretty good example of that. The Jets are being called a dysfunctional trainwreck by everyone in town for their 8-8 season while Tom Coughlin is being hailed as a man who knows how to keep a team together by pushing all the right buttons...
