Tom Coughlin's final 2012 Super Bowl message to the New York Giants was exactly what you might have expected it to be -- FINISH what you started.

Here are three tweets from Inside Football editor Pat Traina regarding the message Coughlin delivered.

Coughlin talked about that message earlier in the week.

"It was the first thing we hit them with," Coughlin said, "and it'll be the last thing they hear from us before they take the field."

Here, also from Giants.com, is a little tidbit about the way Coughlin approaches his work.

"I coach them right up through the kickoff," Coughlin said. "I've never been a believer in, I don't like the phrase, ‘The hay in the barn' business. That's not the case at all. I've always felt you have to - you coach them, you talk to them, you look with them. There is always something that can be discussed or talked about. You're literally doing it, right up until the kickoff. You're talking during the course of the warm-up. You're making little comments that they can grab a hold of. I think you continuously, decide what it is, the two or three key things that you're really interested in as you go forward as you spend your Saturday and Saturday night with your team. You try to bring the entire week or two weeks into context with them, so that they understand exactly where they are and what they have to do in order to win. I don't think it ever stops," Coughlin said.
