Is Thunder and Lightning going to make a comeback anytime soon?
........that was mostly done because Freddy was hurt, when he was healthy, Coughlin played him

Actually, the NFL stacked that expansion team. I think the success of Jacksonville has much less to do with Caughlin than the situation they were in.
Also, didnt I here about Jacksonville plays being disgruntled with him this yr? If thats the case, those things will only be magnified in NY.
I really question this move by the Giants, but apparantly they wanted him all along.
Let me just say I dont think he will still be there in 3 yrs.

Another player sitting behind him punches the ball out from under his arm and a melee ensues as players are trying to get the ball so they can take it to coach for the reward.


Maybe this is a movie...

I wonder how the Giants will respond to his no-nonsense style. He has a rep for being very abrasive, how will that sit with the veterans in NY? I'm thinking they'll be wishing they'd kept Fossil in three years time.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

All depends on if the Giants are winning or not. If the Raiders had been winning this year, I doubt you'd heard many negative things about Bill Callahan.

That's a good point. These next few seasons will really determine if it was luck or good coaching in Jax. He's a Parcells guy, which is probably one of the fastest rising commodities the coming years due to his and Bellichick's success. The Parcells umbrella could soon overtake the Bill Walsh ex-assistants umbrella.
