Giants' Rolle: 49ers' V.Davis asks for trouble

Your COACH did a great job this year, but hes NOT a better coach that Coughlin. Maybe with in years he will be.



Well lets see...

"After being out of football in 2003, Coughlin was named the 16th head coach of the New York Giants on January 6, 2004.

Coughlin inherited a team that finished 4–12 in 2003, but led the Giants to a surprising 5–2 start in his first season as head coach. After back-to-back losses, in which veteran quarterback Kurt Warner struggled, left the Giants at 5–4, Coughlin made the decision to bench Warner and start New York's highly touted rookie quarterback, Eli Manning. Coughlin received criticism from some who felt the move amounted to a surrender of the 2004 season when the Giants were still in playoff contention. The Giants would go on to lose six of the seven games started by Manning, who struggled in his rookie season."

So let me break it down for you since you dont seem very smart.

In their first seasons as head coaches:
Coughlin: Inherited a 4-12 team and took them to a whopping 6-10. Thats a swing of +2

Harbaugh: Inherited a 6-10 team and took them to 13-3 and into the NFC Championship (...and still going) That is a swing of +7

By my math, Harbaugh is exactly 3.5 times better than Coughlin was at this point in his career, and we can round that to 4 times better if you want to count the 1 playoff win he has.

Now shut up because you are WRONG and i just showed you why.

THEB, that wasn't Coughlin's first season as a head coach.
It was in the NFL. Not counting college.

Edit: NVM forgot he coached the Jags.

My stats still stand.

he's a good coach, man. Harbaugh is better, right now, IMO, but Coughlin is no slouch.

Whats the difference between an expansion team and a team installing a completely new system with completely new staff and no offseason?

The difference is our coach is better.

a team like ours had talent already and an expansion team lacks a lot of talent made with players other teams dont want, coughlin is a hell of a coach regardless
Coughlin is a good coach but he was not better than harbaugh in the first year of his career, period.
Yea I think Coughlin is a good coach. And how bout we let JH coach at least a whole season before comparing him to guys' with 10 plus years in the league. Hope the camera is ready to zoom in on Rolle when he's either getting ran over or beat for a TD.
no1 said coughlin is a bad coach, we are just saying what harbaugh did this year is simply amazing. 90% of my friends are giant fans, and over half of them were saying its time to move on from coughlin just over a month ago
If Coughlin was such a great coach, his team would have more wins during the regular season. He's a good coach, don't get me wrong. But I would never call him great. Tony Dungy won a ring too, but I would never call him a great head coach.
coughlin will be out after Sundays loss. He's been hanging onto a thread for a few years now. I hear Ericksonn is available lol.
