The photo of the smiling Tom Coughlin that accompanies this article speaks volumes about the state of the New York Giants these days.
After seeming to be in turmoil in the pre-season with Michael Strahan pondering retirement, Tiki Blabber running his mouth and questions lingering about Coughlin's job security the Giants are one of the hottest teams in the league.
Six straight wins have changed a lot of things with the Giants. They are a contender, with some even saying they might be the NFC's best team. They appear to be getting along and are so far avoiding the distractions that helped blow up last season. And no one is calling for Coughlin to be fired.
My question is this. Has Coughlin done enough that his job status for next season shouldn't be a question? Or, is he still a second half of the season implosion away from being on the unemployment line?
Personally, I think there is no doubt he has earned the right to stay.
Let me know what you think.
