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). The clip is at the bottom of the post.
One particular comment intrigued me: Coa ... More >>
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 >>
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 >>
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 >>
"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."

The reasons why can be seen in the ... More >>
Can Tiki Barber catch on with someone? That question was all over sports talk radio and the Internet today after Barber filed papers with the NFL to come out of retirement.
ESPN commentator Antonio Pierce, who played with Tiki for two years, had this to say yesterday afternoon on NFL Live: " ... More >>
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. Immediately, I'm betting, ... More >>
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 >>
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 >>
Remember this guy?Anyone who watches Willie Geist on MSNBC's Morning Joe, or somehow manages to rise in the dark at 5:30 a.m. to watch Willie's own show, Way Too Early, knows that he's a pretty significant sports fan. So we thought we'd check in with Willie to get his take on the current stat ... More >>
