NEW YORK – Hello Giants fans, did you miss me? I have been taking a nice long break away from writing after winning the Championship and the emotional 2011 season. But I couldn’t help writing something about Tom Coughlin winning the ESPY for Coach of the Year, something he really deserves both as a coach and a man. I’m starting to get the itch to write again and could not think of a better way to re-introduce myself to the New York Giants nation, then with a Tom Coughlin article. It feels good to be back.
Let me stop now and officially say, Congrats Coach!
If you ask me, it has taken the media, the football world and even a lot of the Giants fans, way too long to warm up and recognize how good Coughlin is. A lot of the drama is caused by the morons at the major sports shows. The two Super Bowl wins in five years cannot be denied, they will win a third and be named a dynasty and you will still show no love, so let it be known then. I am very excited for this year and to see what a healthy squad can do over 16 games. This is a dangerous team when fully healthy and they just won the Super Bowl with a depleted roster. How about Jason Pierre-Paul? B-E-A-S-T! I’m going to predict he gets over 20 sacks in 2012. I think rookie RB David Wilson is a very intriguing subject and so is WR Rueben Randle. I’m looking at DT Marvin Austin, CB Prince Amukamara, WR Ramses Barden, TE Martellus Bennett, TE Travis Beckum and WR Domenik Hixon to see what they can do. A lot fans are watching, even though they may be quiet right now but we are all rooting for you guys to have huge seasons. And so is Tom Coughlin and the front office. These guys can make a huge difference in the 2012 season when healthy and clicking with their teammates. They need a shot to do that.
I have always been a big fan of Coach Coughlin, I was never one to criticize him for bad games. By the way, at 65, Coughlin becomes the oldest coach to ever win the award. I have been vocal in the past about OC Gilbride and not caring for some of his play calling. I think this offense is a dynamic but steady OC away from winning two more Super Bowls. The G-Men have the talent, that is for sure, they could be a top offense for the next four to six years if utilized properly. I’m sure of two things about Coach Coughlin, one he is a football guy and two, he is a New York guy. He also looks out for the military and works with the Jay Fund charity, founded in 1996. As most of you know, even his son-in-law is a football player. Giants Pro Bowl OL Chris Snee. Snee will be included in the Giants ‘Ring of Honor’ once he finishes his career with Big Blue and forever be considered one of the best Giants lineman of all time. Without coaches approval, I doubt this marriage would have ever happened, so it’s nice to know that Coughlin is a good judge of character too. I love that the Giants owners continue to reward Coughlin on production with contract extensions, something else he deserves in my opinion. I look forward to seeing Coach on the sidelines for many years to come in the future and enjoy continued success under his watch.
How do you feel about Coach Coughlin winning Coach of the Year?
