Coughlin - Same old story




I have not missed a Giants game or a news story about the Giants in Tom Coughlin's entire career.  I have watched each game to its absolute completion and I have listened to pretty much everything that anyone in a uniform has ever said.  There has been one constant in Tom Coughlin's career.

It is not the playoffs.  It is not his superb gameplanning ability.  In fact it is nothing good at all.  Since day one when he fined Michael Strahan for showing up on time to a meeting, I have heard the same story OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER.  I can't take it anymore.  "The players hate Tom Coughlin." "Tom Coughlin can't coach the next generation millionaire athlete."  "Tom Coughlin has lost the locker room."  "Tiki Barber hates Tom Coughlin."  "Michael Strahan hates Tom Coughlin."  It never ends....EVER.

Antrel Rolle has been around, he has been to a super bowl, and he has seen different coaching styles.  He complained about Coughlin IMMEDIATELY right off the bat.  What does this tell me? The super bowl has not changed one god damn thing.  Coughlin is still the EXACT same coach he was before 2007 and he has never changed.  Players clearly do not enjoy playing for him. 

Do not get me wrong because I believe he is a very good football coach.  He gameplans well, he makes good personel decisions, he is the greatest challenging coach of all time, and I would not trade his years here for anything as he brought us a Super Bowl Ring.  But i think we need to stop attacking Antrel Rolle or anyone who says anything about Coughlin. (which probably won't be anyone else after yesterday because these players are probably terrified after the Rolle Phillips incident)  All different kinds of people don't say the same thing about you for years and years and years. 

Rolle has NO IDEA what life was like as a New York Giant before this season, correct?  Then I end with this second question.... Why has he said the EXACT SAME things to a tee that so many have said before him?  The list is long.  Guys that probably never even met each other have the EXACT SAME opinion on Tom Coughlin.  This is not coincidence people.
