Changes are Coming for the Giants

Tom Coughlin's days in New York might be numbered after all. Not that this comes as any surprise considering the horrific season the Giants have endured this year, and the fact that Big Blue will be playoff-less for the fourth straight season, but according to Giants101.com, who quoted an article from the Record, doomsday is coming.

"Co-owners John Mara and Steve Tisch were ready to give head coach Tom Coughlin & Co. a pass if they could win their final two games, hoping that health and substantial cap space could resurrect the organization in 2016.

But that didn't happen. Instead, the Giants were embarrassed by the Minnesota Vikings on National TV and it all but ensured Mara had to live up to his "win or else" mandate.

Subsequently, The Record reports Giants brass spent the majority of Monday morning in conference calls as they evaluated the job status of not just Tom Coughlin, but the entire team from top to bottom," (GIANTS101.COM)

So there you go, it appears that Coughlin is entering his final full week as head coach of the New York Giants. The man deserves a better ending than this, but losing ones job never has a dignified ending to it. Only Bill Cowher is the only recent coach to go out at the top when he surprisingly retired as head coach of the Steelers one year after winning a Super Bowl back in 2006.

The Giants need to fully evaluate the entire football operation. Not only will they need a new head coach and coaching staff, they should let GM Jerry Reese walk after years of mediocre drafts and horrible decisions in free agency. If the Giants are going to be to true to a win or else mantra, an entire house cleaning is needed to turn the page.
