As I said earlier, Coughlin is, fair or not, the face of the recent disappointments for the Giants. Two years ago, it was the Off Coord (Gilbride). Last season, it was the Def Coord (Fewell). There is only the GM and the Coach left. If the Giants roster doesnt get better, and if they dont get some better luck with injuries, then next season or the season after that, Reese should/will be cleaning out his office. But, as it stands today, Coughlin is falling on the sword.

On a different note: I think McAdoo has a bright future as a coach, and firing Coughlin may allow some other team to get him; Im not sure I want to see that happen...

Being an assistant coach is less demanding then a head coach is. I'm assisting for a high school basketball team in Connecticut this year and while I do assist in the practices, game day preparation, scouting, etc. I'm not required to be at every practice. If I have to work late, or if I have a class, I can miss the practices/games, etc. Head coaches meanwhile are involved in all and every facet of the program/team and then some. Can't miss any practices or games, have to stay until the last person leaves.

Some assistants can handle Head Coach responsibilities; some cant. I think McAdoo can.

Hope the Giants don't hire Mike Smith (ex-Falcon HC). I was never sold on him.

I heard the Smith rumor and was like are you kidding me? He did not do the Falcons any favors when they were pretty stacked with talent. I think McAdoo would be a better choice (of course, I am biased).

Lol, yes, I know you are, but definitely give me McAdoo over Smith!

Coughlin got ramrodded. Reese should have been fired instead. Not even Vince Lombardi nor Bill Belichick could coach up that defense. Pierre Paul decimated himself. The only two players worth keeping on the defensive side of the ball are Landon Collins and Dominique Rodgers Cromartie. Look at Reese's work drafting over the last few years. He hit a home run with Beckham, Justin Pugh appears to be solid, Hankins and Richburg are a little above average. The remainder of his draft picks have been lacking. It wouldn't have mattered if Spags or Fewell were the defensive coordinator. The team is just flat out lacking when it comes to good players.

I just dont know what they expected from that roster that was assembled this season. That roster simply wasnt good enough, and while I know Coughlin takes his share of the blame in several of those last minute losses, isnt still amazing that this roster managed six wins?
