New York Giants' headlines for Thursday, 3/27

Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Let's get caught up on your Thursday morning headlines.

Former New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is taking a physical today for the Philadelphia Eagles. Despite some reports that the Giants had some level of interest, it seems Philly is the place Sanchez has been expected to sign.

Is Giants' coach Tom Coughlin worthy of enshrinement into the Pro Football Hall of Fame? Coughlin said Monday he thought he merited consideration. Gary Myers of the Daily News believes Coughlin has done enough to deserve being a Hall of Famer:

I have one of the 46 votes and believe Coughlin meets the standards for joining the elite coaches in NFL history. Coaching the expansion Jaguars in 1997 to the AFC title game in just their second year - they lost to Parcells and the Patriots - and their fourth year - they lost to the Titans - will strengthen his case. Of course, winning a third Super Bowl eliminates any conversation and, to steal a Parcells expression, he would enter the Hall "on roller skates."

How did the Giants lure Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie away from the New York Jets? On Wednesday, Coughlin explained:

"To be honest with you, he was looking for a place to sink his roots and become a guy who represented a team and stayed there, and worked his way through some things," Coughlin said. "He wanted to be part of something instead of one year here, one year there. ...He jumped on that. He wanted to be a guy who's associated with a team and be recognized.

"We have a young man that really wants to be coached," he said. "We studied and we saw some areas we can help him in, and we were very specific about how that would happen. He was very open and receptive to it. We did a good job of it. Our coaches worked their tails off. They spent a lot of time on it, a lot of time."

Interestingly, Coughlin said he has not met new Giants' offensive lineman John Jerry. Coughlin said the report he got from Jerry Reese was that Jerry was "authentic" in their meeting.

The Star-Ledger looks at Trindon Holliday and wonders if he can be more than a return man.
