I hope you enjoy these notes!
It is clear that the NY Giants feel that Tom Coughlin, 2x Super Bowl Champion, was the problem for the organization (see Gary Myers’ article), as everyone else in 6-10 organization was retained while Coughlin was basically forced to resign.
From all reports, it looks as though Coughlin was the scapegoat and now his offensive coordinator makes the jump from calling the plays to setting the course for the franchise.
Sometimes owners/GMs/ADs and the athletes think the grass is greener, but that is not always the case.
Be careful what you wish for
