It wasn’t too long ago when Tom Coughlin was routinely put on the head coach hot seat. However, the New York Giants have managed to win a couple of Super Bowls with Coughlin manning the sidelines, so the talk of replacing the Giants’ head coach has been kept to a dull roar for the most part. With that being said, the Giants are now 0-3 and New York could be making a few major changes in the coming weeks.
For those of you defending two-time Super Bowl champion Coughlin, his Giants were throttled by the Carolina Panthers on Sunday to the tune of 38-0! Yes — Eli Manning was shutout by a team that hasn’t held the opposition scoreless since 2008. How exactly does a team with offensive weapons like Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks and David Wilson get blanked?
In a word…turnovers. Manning threw another interception on Sunday, which gives him the NFL lead in that category with eight.
Not to mention, Wilson has had trouble in his sophomore season and the Giants’ woeful offensive line is not helping the matter at all. While Coughlin doesn’t have any control over starters like David Diehl going down due to injury, he is the head coach, which means he should be doing a better job of getting the offensive gameplan up to par.
Either way, keep an eye on New York’s head coach because if the Giants continue to scuffle then Coughlin could be out of work for the first time since 2004.
