I guess he gets a pass cause with the hand he is dealt, ie: no LB's, hurt DE's he has made the best of it.

I don't think they are mutually exclusive any more. You almost always need both. An Oline and a stud WR.

With our luck, they will more killdrive up to HC. LOL

CommanderShepard You want me to give up my dream of a world without killdrive and TC on the sidelines? Never. I can always hope.

I don't think it will be enough. They still love the guy and he loves killdrive. Like the mayor said, Oline will be scapegoat to keep the status quo.
I hope you are wrong on this but I don't think so. Only a total 2/14 season would bring a change.

I never assumed they would get rid of him in any scenario, what I do believe is without a total collapse, they will definitely NOT make a change. Hence, my argument for lossing.
Andy, you don't think Nicks was just hurt? I have no idea. I don't have time anymore to read up on the team like I used to. The only news I read about the Giants is this blog. (jezz, i'm getting old and lazy. lol)
What I have seen is Nicks much better in the last few games they I have seen him in a few years and like i said, in this NFL, you need a true stud #1 to put you over the top. I like your idea of the Arrrington type deal (I would have loved to see how good that team would have been had he stayed healthy, he was just coming around when he went down)
Only if they went 2/14 would they fire Tom and/or force him to get rid of killdrive. Winning 5 games to me means the same old same old exactly like the Mayor said. Only thru being very very bad for a year would the owners make a change. With those 4 garbage wins (will not put washington win in there) we are doomed to at least 1 more year of poor coaching.
Only thing I disagree with in the above post is the importance of Nicks. They part ways with him this team will never see another SB with Eli unless they get lucky and get another true number #1. You can't win in the NFL anymore without one true stud WR. Case in point, when Plax went down, so did the Giants. When Brady did not have Gronk, they were not nearly as good. The only way to overcome that is with a super QB like a Rogers or Big Brother Manning. Eli is just not good enough.

@the mayor The Mayor Said, "The curse of those 4 crap games against garbage qb's robbed us of
wholesale change. It's gonna be 2 more years of garbage before anything
CommanderShepard Your taking this way to seriously. If you feel I am talking down to you that is not my intention.

And I say the same thing about people who go to games and boo the home team. Does that make me right? Does that make them right?
Your trying to take how you feel and project it onto another. When I was younger I could never ever feel the way I do know about this subject. Does that make the younger me better than the older me? According to you, yes it does. Older me begs to differ.

@Paddlepedal Like your comments paddle but I can't agree with some of them. Your making assumptions on why I want them to lose. I don't want them to lose so the get better draft choices. I want them to lose for one reason and that's Coaching change (s),
While I would love to see TC gone I would at least hope for KB to be gone.
Losing the rest of the way does not necessarily mean that the players are no good. Wholesale change usually comes when the head coach loses the locker room and the team has a cancer. This team does not. Players like Rolle and Eli will try and prevent that from happening. The Giants always seem to draft not just for physical ability but also guys who are team players.

@CommanderShepard Root? No. Hope they don't win. Yes. By rooting for them to win meaningless games, you are rooting for your team to fail because winning these games means the inept coaching staff gets to stay and lose more games year after year.

The only positive I took from this game was Nicks finally showed up. Other than that, I wish they had lost. Any wins the rest of the year just help insure TC and KG stay just where they are.

This is why I hate Tom C so much. This is from the Pat Traina article Andy put a link to above.
" Head coach Tom Coughlin always talks about the importance of balance, so when asked after the game if he was tempted to run the ball more given the success that phase of the offense was having, he replied, “No. We’re a balanced team. We play for balance.”
This goes directly to comments made earlier on this blog about why not stick to the run when it is working. Killdrive is not the only problem on this team. Tom is the driving force of stupidity and he needs to go. Without overwhelming superior talent and the greatest luck of anyone ever, he will just kill this team for years to come. His stubbornness will be our undoing as noted in the above quote. Hell, in toms eyes, why stick with what works.

@ultimatenyg Agree, Eli is not the issue. I believe you only get better in the NFL at QB the longer you get to play and start. That is until the body begins to break down. Mentally, guys like Eli and Simms and other true drop back QB's just get better with experience. Simms last few years with the team were his best by leaps and bounds. ( I will never ever forgive Reeves for cutting him. Dave Brown??? OMG)
WIth out time to throw, Eli's entire game is thrown off and without Nicks out there to help bail him out and without a TE also, he is just in to deep for his skill sets.
Rogers is way way better than Brady, Brady just plays for a great coach with plays to his skill sets. Hell, Belichick made Matt Cassil into a star.
@pdmeyerh I for one don't think I am overestimating how much talent or lack of a coach can overcome. Why is it that the Patriots almost never ever get blow out. Even why they lose they are still in the game. While not everyone can be as good a coach as belichick we can at least be somewhat better than we have been. As buljos pointed out in his comment, "Gilbride doesn't make Dallas stop the run, he stops the run... "

@CommanderShepard @RussWellen1 Should have never come down to a last minute drive. Cowgirls D is just bad and how many redzone trips did we have that game and come way with FG's? With the running game working so well, that is just unforgivable.
