    The New York media is all in a tizzy about how bad it will look if Coughlin goes to
    Philly and succeeds. I think if he goes there it’s much more likely New York has the last laugh as he goes there and fails.

    Fails??? Do you see the squad Jerry Reese gave him this past season? He’s the best coach out there. The Giants did him wrong. I hope Tom gets the job and wins the division. It would serve the Giants right. Mike Smith? Doug Marrone? Coaches like this couldn’t hold TC’s jock!

    I agree with the above comment.The Giants let the wrong man go.Reese has done a terrible job(with the exception of drafting Beckham).Coughlin deserved a better fate.
