    How long until Tom Coughlin gets fired?

    I was thinking today originally going by what the Giants owner said during the summer.   

    Their next 3 games AT Chiefs, home against Philly and AT Bears could be it for him unless they win at least 2 of those games and look better in the loss because then they have their bye week and I don't see him returning for game #7.

    You'd think 2 SB championships in the last 5 years would be enough to keep him safe.

    i would think they would give the benifit of the doubt and not fire him untill the season ends. He is due that kind of respect!!!!!

    Good question. It's not like his 2 SB wins were convincing. A lot of "what the other guy didn't do" went into those victories. But in my view the guy deserves a few more years at least.

    I don't think he'll be fired during the year. Maybe at the end but if he wins 7 games I think he'll be back for sure. The funny thing is, I'm not sure they will win 7 games this year

    My mistake, their bye week isn't until after game #8, but until then they have Philly (twice), KC, Bears, Vikings.   Could be 0-8 after the first half of the season.

    Their second half isn't much better as they start with Oakland (shouldn't lose that one), Packers, Cowboys, Redskins (twice), Chargers, Seahawks and Lions.

    Very tough schedule they have been dealt this year, I do not see them being more than a 4 or 5 win team, possibly 1 or 2 unless they vastly improve.

    Tom Coughlin is an excellent coach. 

    He was an excellent coach at Boston College, including knocking off #1 ND in South Bend.

    He was the best coach the Jaguars ever had.   They gave the Pats a good game in the '96 Conf. Championship.  He had them in the playoffs 4/8 years.  No other coach has come close for that sorry franchise.

    He's won 2 SBs with the Giants, and has another SB ring from his time on the Giants staff under Parcells.

    They are obviously off to a rough start and their last game was horrendous, but there are probably 10 other things that need to be corrected before looking at the HC as a problem.

    8-8 in that division might get you in Play-offs, so nothing to worry about yet.

    He'll be out of work for half a day if he's fired at the end of the season. I like Coughlin and I feel he deserves the full season.

    It could come down to wins. For example if Coughlin wins 6 or fewer games he's gone. Six or more and he's in. Some of this is on Reese and what he has done with the money and how some players have really underperformed. Super Bowl rings could mean he get a reprieve, but next year he is on the hotseat. Another aspect of this is to consider which coaches will be available at season's end for Giants management.

    You're right, because it matters how you win, not if you win.  Good point.  Undecided

    To be fair, all 3 of the Patriots' rings are from 3 points each as well.   No SB blowouts by them.

    Close games yes. But wins not handed to them by the other guy choking. There is a difference.

    His 2 rings gives him cache for now. Remember Mark Twain though...it's a 16 game season....

    Re: How long until Tom Coughlin gets fired?

    He has leverage as being the guy who turns the ship around and wins the SB, even though his team wins the SB due to the pass-rushers playing at elite levels and Eli making lucky throws. The problem with this is that he never actually coached them up to be better players, they just start playing lights out because their backs are to the wall. In fact, in 2007, the team hated him and had rebelled. They didn't rally around him until they beat Greenbay(I think). He doesn't have that terribe three-some he had in 2007 or 2011, and in both seasons, he had a dominant emerging second year DE who allowed the Giants to play in their "Nascar" formation because no one knew how to defend that emerging player.

    2007 - Osi, Strahan and 2nd year DE Justin Tuck.

    2011 - Osi, Tuck and 2nd year DE JPP.

     

    Might as well keep him, the NFC East is the most overhyped and overrated division in football. They Giants are only 2 games out of first and the Cowboys are the division leaders. Who amongst us would be surprised to see the Cowboys finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs?

    I think he is one of the better coaches in the Bill Belichick coaching tree. Parcells being the other notable coach who made a name for himself after associating with BB.

    PLEASE STOP THE COUGHLIN GETTING FIRED TALK!

     

    Every time it comes up that they are not a very good team and Caughlin should be fired they seem to end up winning the SB the next season.

    Anybody who can win 2 SBs in 5 years with a hot and cold guy like Eli is a great coach, opponent choking or not.
