Um, no. That’s about the most succinct and politically correct summation of what Tom Coughlin thought of two calls in Sunday’s 37-20 playoff victory over the Packers. Coughlin took a careful look at the tape from the game and was even more certain yesterday that referee Bill Leavy...
Giants’ head coach Tom Coughlin met with the media back at TIMEX today to reflect on his team’s 37-20 NFC Divisional Playoff victory of the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers.

Whatever happens in San Francisco next Sunday, whether the Giants keep Tom Coughlin’s dream and their belief in themselves alive and make it back to another Super Bowl, this victory, this new one over the Packers Sunday night at old Lambeau Field, is as great as the Giants have ever had.
The last time the Giants were in San Francisco, they clock ran out before they could finish their comeback. They intend to clean up that unfinished business this Sunday.
SNY Insider Mike Garafolo reports from TIMEX:
The Giants are so over the Packers. They left them battered and beaten and are stoked to move on the next game. No time celebrate. Everyone seems up to the challenge…...
Antrel Rolle doesn't come from the Tom Coughlin mold for the New York Giants.
In the split second it took Tom Coughlin to decide to go for the field goal that would send the Giants to the Super Bowl, he turned to find the decision already had been made. Lawrence Tynes, who had earlier missed two potential game-winners, never waited to hear Coughlin tell him to get out there.
