    Hope you caught Tom Coughlin on The Daily Show last night, plugging his new book, Earn the Right to Win: How Success in Any Field Starts with Superior Preparation before a beaming Jon Stewart (obviously a Big Blue fan).

    Giants Fans: Start Planning That Super Bowl Party Now

    You may think that the Giants hit a new low yesterday with a 34-0 thrashing at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons. But not so, I think. I think the Giants are testing a new strategy, one they worked to perfection at the end of last season. You'll recall that at the end of the 2011 regular season Bi ... More >>

    Jets Need Sympathy; Giants Need To Wake Up

    Watching the Giants 19-17 loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia last night, two things stood out for me. The first was how extraordinary the Giants have been in two championship postseasons. The second is how utterly ordinary they have been otherwise in the Tom Coughlin era. Late in the 4th quarter, ... More >>

    Memo to Tom Coughlin: Win Sunday or Pack It In

    ​How important is Sunday's Giants-Cowboys game to New York's immediate future? Let's lead with one truly eye-popping fact: If the Giants lose to Dallas, they'll have lost, in the space of five weeks, to all four NFC division leaders. I don't know if that has ever happened in team history; if i ... More >>

    Tom Coughlin and the Giants: Doomed to Repeat History?

    "It's not going to be the history, believe me. I know that this is something fanatically involved with all of you but each team is a new team and each team is a new year."

    Tom Couglin on the Giants' Loss to the Eagles: "Why?"

    According to ESPN last night, Tom Coughlin's first word to his team after the Giants' baffling and humiliating 17-10 loss to the Eagles on Sunday Night Football was, "Why?" I translate that as "Man, you'd think somebody could do something about this, don't you?" The reasons why can be seen in the ... More >>

    Tom Coughlin Will Sort of Remain in Control of the Giants

    ​With about five minutes to go in the Giants 17-14 victory over the Redskins in Washington yesterday, the bad news was flashed across our TV screens: the Green Bay Packers had defeated the Chicago Bears, shutting the Giants out of the playoffs and ending their season.

    Tom Coughlin Forgot, and Now Giants Fans Never Will

    Coughlin: Without his thinking capI've been scrambling — oops, sorry, Giants fans, I'll try to find a word not easily associated with Michael Vick. Let's say I've been searching hard to find an angle on Sunday's debacle that hasn't been written about a dozen times by everyone one else. I don't ... More >>

    Jets and Giants: Forget that First Week!

    ​What a difference a week makes. When the Jets-Ravens game was over last Monday night, the cry was that Rex Ryan was just another guy with a big mouth who had let his team get distracted by the lure of reality TV while Giants coach Tom Coughlin was the quiet, confident leader content with the ...

    ​Somehow it was fitting that Tom Coughlin's Giants picked their last game in their old stadium to give us their most memorable performance. No one who saw their 41-9 slaughter by the Carolina Panthers -- a 6-8 team going into the game -- will ever forget it. The lingering question about their ... More >>

    Watching the New York Giants' offense spit and sputter against the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday, I had a thought: How much different would this postseason be for New York fans if one of the NFL's two New Jersey-based pro teams had had the sense to get Kurt Warner before the season started?The answe ...
