Giants '06 VS Giants '07

WE MUST CONSIDER THIS BEFORE WE FIRE THE HEAD COACH:

2006 = 8-8 (first round playoffs loss)

The Giants opened the season with a 6-2 record, but went 2-6 in the final half, barely making the playoffs. INCONSISTENT PLAY by the whole team hurt the organization all season long and FANS AND SPORTS ANALYSIST BECAME IRATE WITH COACH Tom Coughlin, CALLING FOR HIS FIRING! The team won five consecutive games following a 1-2 start to gain a two game advantage in the NFC Eastern Division, but key injuries to the offense and defense took their toll. Tiki Barber had created controversy in the middle of the season by announcing he would retire and start a career in the media, which apparently was a distraction for many Giants players. The most embarrassing loss was a 24-21 defeat by Tennessee, in which the team surrendered a 21 point fourth quarter advantage, and which could have been averted had Mathias Kiwanuka finished tackling Titans QB Vince Young rather than letting him go and run for a first down. Following a season ending win at Washington, the Giants claimed a wild card berth in the NFC playoffs, but were eliminated in the first round by Philadelphia on a last second field goal.

Barber led the Giants with 1,662 yards and over 2,000 yards from scrimmage again, Eli Manning threw for 3,244 yards and 24 touchdowns, and Jeremy Shockey led the team in receptions. Defensively the team struggled all season long with pass defense (28th in the league).

2007 = Superbowl!!!!

they had a "smart" football coach. a "YOUNG" talented QB, and a Horse for a RB that they were not afraid to give the ball to.

Our coach doesn't see the glory in running the ball. it's much funner to sling it all around like he's playing madden.

we have a old ass QB that has no upside like Eli, and a defense that plays scared half the time.

Nothing Like The Giants!

Coughlin also had about 36 years of coaching experience, much as a head coach in both the NCAA and the NFL at that point. He had taken a team, an expansion team no less to 2 AFC Championship games, a 14-2 record in one of them, an NFL Coach of the Year award, and a 10 win per season average in the first 5 years of an expansion's team existence.

Tom Coughlin was a proven coach who knew what the hell he was doing. Eric Mangini is a fraud who had ONE YEAR's experience as a defensive coordinator. Under his watch, the Pats had the worst defensive statistical season of their dynasty and Bellichick actually pulled playcalling duty from him at the end of the season.

Yeah. Great comparison. :rolleyes:
