Timely article for me. I was just thinking the other day about what happened to cool and collected coaches like Tom Landy and Don Shula. You could tell they were seething inside but they never lost it. Although you say Holmgren and Chuckie strategically berate their players I'd disagree, I've seen them both denigrate players for performance failure. Furthermore, watching Grudens face is like watching a kid's at the grocery store when his Mom tells him he cant have any candy at the check out line. Whhhaaaaa! And Bill Parcells, that dude has got to be bi-polar! Giants need to sack up and stop whining about how they don't like Tom Coughlin. If they lose this weekend it will be 4 straight after 5 consecutive wins. Rollercoaster teams like that rarely make the playoffs, and sitting at 6-6 ready to implode with 4 tough games ahead will spell big trouble. If they don't step up this week, they can forgetta'boutit!
Of course if that happens one thing might come out of it for the players, Tom Coughlin will most likely get pink slipped.
