NFL coaches beware: meet the Green Bay Packers
Tom Coughlin entered Sunday on shaky enough ground coming off the debacle the week before to the Philadelphia Eagles. After a 45-17 thrashing by the Green Bay Packers, in which his New York Giants squad turned the ball over six times and seemed to go brain dead in key moments, one must wonder if he is in his last days as head coach of the Giants. Losses to Green Bay have already ushered Wade Phillips and Brad Childress out their respective doors this season and win or lose on Sunday, if the Giants fail to make the playoffs for a second consecutive season, one must wonder if the Giants brass will look back on this listless performance and decide that it is time to make a change. Coughlin is 64 years old and only has one year remaining on his contract, so if the Giants were to make a move, now would be the time to do it.
