EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—Tom Coughlin cashed in on the New York Giants (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nyg/;_ylt=Au_aNw3buuofbtOhpsWBM94dsLYF)’ improbable run to a Super Bowl title, signing a four-year, $21 million contract that will make him one of the NFL’s highest-paid coaches.
“Tom Coughlin has done a great job for us and we think this contract recognizes his outstanding achievements here,” Giants president and chief executive John Mara said Saturday. “This is a message to him and to our fans that we want him to be our coach for many years to come.”
The 61-year-old coach will earn about $5.25 million annually, a $2 million increase over last season and what he was to have earned this year. Seattle’s Mike Holmgren is the NFL’s top-paid coach at $8 million a year.

Coughlin who has been fighting for his coaching life, on the verge of being fired at any given second all of the sudden gets a 4-year extension because of his Super Bowl win.

So when NYG goes 8-8 next season, will the talks about Coughlin's job being on the line come up again?

I would expect it to come earlier than that. New Yorkers forget the past easily. If he doesn't have a winning record at the halfway point, people are want him out.

But I'm not expecting that at all. I expect them to do pretty well again this year.

How is this a surprise?? Once they made the playoffs, he pretty much got a 2 year extension. As they advanced, he added years and $$ to it. He, much like Eli, has bought himself a lot of time from the critics.

I just think its funny. More than three-quarters of the season he was fighting for his coaching life, management was going to fire him, fans wanted him out... He catches a break and his team happens to win the Bowl, so he gets extended. Imagine if they open the season 0-2. Or at the halfway point they are only 4-4 or worse. It'll be the same story all over again. Coughlin sucks, he should be fired, he better win his next two or we might have to let him go...

Then those "said" fans really didn't pay much attention to that final game. The one where the defense dominated. Where Tyree went up and made a catch that seemed almost impossible. I doubt Eli. If he can follow up his playoff performance of not f*cking up over the course of next season, then I will change my thoughts on him. Until then, f*ck Eli.

I'm with Killah. I pegged the Giants to upset teams like Dallas and go deep and I totally respect the play of the team as a whole and the way Eli played for most of the playoffs.. an impressive run. But The SB is Over with a Pats win had Samuel (I think it was Asante) pulled in the ball late in the 4th quarter that Eli threw pretty much RIGHT to him.. Samuel was on the sideline and hopped up for what woulda been the game clinching pick and instead it flew RIGHT through Asante's hands. That's prototypical Eli Manning, really... I'm not sold on him quite yet which is unfortunate b/c I own him in a keeper :D

No, the Into was thrown to a Giant and it bounced off his hands, CLEARLY!. He slid on his knees I believe and it bounced off. I remember it very well.

You guys are nuts. If the Giants didn't fire him after last years collapse then they certainly aren't going to fire him after forking over 21 million bucks.

The Giants could miss the playoffs for the next 2 years and Coughlin would still be brought back for year 3. That Super Bowl win guarantees a minimum 3 more years of Coughlin in N.Y. especially with the amount of money invested in him.

Giant ownership deserves a lot of credit for sticking with the guy at the end of 2007 because most teams would have shit canned him right then and there. I personally was shocked that they didn't. Maybe ownership knew Tiki was the biggest problem in that lockerroom in 07.

Bonger is talking about a different play. One that would have clinched the Super Bowl is Asante Samuel would have come down with the ball. Samuel didn't.

...and if you go back through the threads, you would see that I actually commended Eli for playing well enough to not f*ck it up. Which is what my point is. I am not sold on Eli at all. He had a nice playoff run, let's see him work that type of game through the regular season. If he does, then I will have a different perspective of him then, until then... He's a shitbag. He looks like he is going to shit his pants everytime he is on the field. I don't have faith in him to run the offense.

I am glad that he won the Super Bowl quicker than Peyton though. ;)

Not a Giants fan. I don't have them on the shitlist though. I just don't like Eli. If he were on the Falcons, I would almost be forced to switch teams until they got rid of him. He's an arrogant, prick bastard who thinks he is shit because he is a Manning. "...and with the 1st overall pick, San Diego selects Eli Manning." Says Eli, ".....:cry::cry::cry: Waaa, waaa f*cking waaaa.... I am not playing for San Diego." Who the f*ck are you Eli to tell an NFL team and the NFL in general that you are not playing somewhere. Go eat shit. So, he started his career off on the wrong foot with that dick behaviour. Secondly, going into the playoffs, he was shit. He wasn't that great. He owed all the successes of that team to the Giants defense and Brandon Jacobs. When he passed, Plax bailed him out. The ducks he throws. The errant passes that wobble haplessly through the air. Everytime the camera is on him it looks like he is about to shit his pants. He looks confused. Even in the playoffs, he looked this way. He played good enough to not f*ck anything up catastrophically. What a terd.

However, as I mentioned before, I am glad he won it quicker than Peyton because I think Peyton is a big sack of shit too. Yeah, fine he is a solid QB, but still a dick. A dick who made a funny commercial.

David Tyree


Giants WR and Super Bowl hero David Tyree (http://www.footballguys.com/TyreDa00-1.php) is still rehabbing his left knee, which underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in April. His return is unknown, as is his place on the roster which is loaded with young talent at wideout. Tryee has, however, also earned a bid to the Pro Bowl as a special teamer. But it's even possible the team could place him on the PUP list to start the season. "Whether I'm on the roster, off the roster, the fifth receiver or the third receiver, they're going to make decisions based on what's best for the team," Tyree said. "My job is to go out there and make the plays when I'm given the opportunity. When you look back at what I've done when given the opportunity, I've showed up. I can't do any more than that."

The man that basically secured the SB win for the Gints and he doesn't even have a spot. I get that he went through some surgery, but damn... give the man a chance.

As I agree that he made one of the best, if not best, catches I've ever seen, he has done SQUAT in the past 5 years he has been in the league. He has never caught more than 2 TD's in a season or more than 211 yards in a season while playing no less than 12 games (3 seasons in which he played all 16). His numbers are awful King and now must compete with the other Steve Smith and Mario Manningham whom I think are both better, or more talented, I should say.

Yea, as much as fan's "sympathy" for him might come into play (based on "the catch"), it really doesn't make up for what has been a fairly disappointing career so far. He has the speed, but not the hands (consistently, anyway).

About the 12/16 games thing, you do have to realize that even though he's played that many games, he's probably only on the field for about 20% of the Giants' offensive plays.

while that may be true, good players find a way to get out on the field more. And he's not a good player.

But as mentioned, when called upon, he has come through. You are gonna get lost in the mix when you have Burress and Toomer out there. I don't think he is an every down receiver, I don't think he is God awful though. He can be used in situational spots. I don't think he deserves to be given the shaft. The catch was pretty remarkable and at least deserves time to be looked at. The through was pathetic and he made Eli look like a hero. If he dropped that ball or if it grazed his fingertips and it ended up being picked off by the Pats and the Pats went down and ended up scoring and winning, you know his ass would have been cut - no questions asked about it.

As far as Steve Smith and Mario Manningham. I am not sold on the other Steve Smith. I don't think he is any better or worse than Tyree. Manningham on the otherhand. And its not just because he is a Wolverine. Manningham's biggest issue is will he be able to keep himself out of trouble off the field. If so, I think he can be a stud receiver in years to come.

One more sparkle of Giants news that I have for now...



NYG - TE Shockey Reports To Camp (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3437205&campaign=rss&source=NFLHeadlines) :eek:

New York Giants TE Jeremy Shockey (http://www.footballguys.com/ShocJe00-1.php) arrived at the team's training camp today, after threatening not to attend. Shockey is still recovering from a broken leg suffered last season and will not participate in any drills.

Shockey another one of those guys pretty high up on my special little FU list.

Barring something big, he'll be a Giant this fall. He'll whine and make some noise and then he'll be be a good fantasy TE. Again. In his six years in the league, he's been a top 7 TE four of those years and never worse than the #11 guy.

A little more...




Jeremy Shockey (http://www.footballguys.com/ShocJe00-1.php) reportedly had a huge shouting match with general manager Jerry Reese this week, perhaps the prelude to the Giants finally cutting ties with their tight end.
Shockey remained secluded Friday, the final day of the team's mandatory minicamp, leaving Giants Stadium before the morning practice ended. Reports later surfaced he and Reese had an animated argument, apparently over some points the tight end listed Saturday as reasons for his unrest.

One was the Giants' insistence he watch Super Bowl XLII from co-owner Steve Tisch's luxury box instead of from the sidelines. More important, however, was Shockey's claim the Giants spread the rumors of his off-season unrest in hopes of drumming up trade interest.

See ya Shockey?!?!

The NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell is looking into the case of Giants RB Ahmad Bradshaw (http://www.footballguys.com/BradAh00-1.php), who is currently in a Virgina jail serving a 30 day sentence.
"We are looking into it to determine whether he is subject to discipline," said Greg Aiello, the NFL's senior vice president of public relations.

Bradshaw's supporters argue that the running back has done nothing wrong since being drafted by the Giants in the seventh round last year and that he is only serving jail time because of a prior offense - which is reportedly sealed because it occurred when Bradshaw was a juvenile. The Giants argued as much in a statement on Thursday.

Well, I can see the argument here... If he has been clean since he's been in the NFL, then the NFL shouldn't get involved with any disciplinary action this time around.

Plax to show up in camp...


New York Giants WR Plaxico Burress (http://www.footballguys.com/BurrPl00-1.php) insists he's healthy, and is excited to see what he can do on two working legs and promises to be at training camp along with his teammates when players report July 24. Burress is seeking a new contract, and previous made his unhappiness public. "I'm getting good feedback," Burress said regarding a new deal. "I think it's going to get done. I'm not concerned about it. I don't want to go anywhere, I'm happy here in New York, I just want to make sure I'm here for a long time." Burress has three years remaining on the deal he signed with the Giants as a free agent prior to the 2005 season. He's scheduled to make $3.25 million this season.

However...the moment that the contract discussions change, expect Burress to go the other way.

Like many New York Giants following their Super Bowl win last season, starting RB Brandon Jacobs (http://www.footballguys.com/JacoBr00-1.php) is seeking a new deal. Several of his teammates have already received extensions or new contracts, but, according to Jacobs' agent, negotiations have not gone well with the club. "Nothing is close and nothing is expected to get done before camp starts," said his agents. There has been no animosity between the two sides yet and there seems to be no deadline set by either party.

Don't expect Jacobs to miss any time. This deal will get done. However, with Bradshaw out of jail, the Giants may feel a little more secure in their run game so this could be why the Jacobs deal is taking longer than it took to get some of the other new deals out of the way.

I haven't seen anything to say yes. The latest thing that I saw on this is that the NFL was looking into seeing if a suspension is warranted. Since this infraction happened long before Bradshaw entered the NFL, I can't see the NFL rightfully suspending him. If they try the Players Association will likely appeal it.

Giants RB Brandon Jacobs (http://www.footballguys.com/JacoBr00-1.php) said his focus is no longer on a contract extension, but rather playing a full 16-game season, something he failed to do last year. "I'm done (negotiating) now. I'm finished. It's camp time, you know?" he said. "I don't want to be talking about negotiations and talk to my agent back and forth every chance I get. It's camp time. I'm focused." He will earn $927,000 this year, the final of his rookie contract.

Good to see Jacobs focusing on what is important. "Target" year for Jacobs. He wants a big check. This is the year that will determine if he gets it.

New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress (http://www.footballguys.com/BurrPl00-1.php) continues to sit out of practice. Head coach Tom Coughlin said in an interview given to NBC yesterday that team physician Russ Warren confirmed Burress has a legitimate ankle injury and will sit out at least until the middle of this week. It had earlier been reported that the ankle concern may have been a ploy on Burress' part to help initiate a new contract.

Hmm... Wouldn't it be funny to see the status of Burress's ankle injury mirror the status of Burress's contract???

The NFL is still investigating whether RB Ahmad Bradshaw (http://www.footballguys.com/BradAh00-1.php)'s recent 30-day jail sentence was a violation of the league's Personal Conduct Policy. The Giants and Bradshaw's lawyers claim it stemmed from an incident before he came to the NFL. Bradshaw has declined repeated requests to be interviewed by the media since camp began. League spokesman Greg Aiello said a decision should be coming "soon."

Well... Although it seems as if Bradshaw is expected to be the main back-up behind Jacobs this season, I would hold off on pulling the trigger to pick him up until we know if he can play all 16 games... If possible. If your draft dictates that you take him, don't feel bad.

That said... With Lynch getting off, I can't see any way possible that Goodell and the NFL can "punish" Bradshaw for something that occurred waaaay before his NFL career even started.

The New York Giants and QB Eli Manning (http://www.footballguys.com/MannEl00-1.php) are focusing on improving the Giants ability to connect on deep pass plays this training camp. "We feel like we need more big plays," HC Tom Coughlin said. "It's more the idea of creating versatility against opposing defenses."

That should be fun to watch... Eli - long ball... Keep practicing!!! But the comment "We feel like we need more big plays" is retarded. Every team feels like they need more big plays.

Fantasy kicker implications......


Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes, sidelined for almost two weeks with a left knee injury, will undergo exploratory surgery Friday to assess the full extent of the injury. According to three anonymous sources with direct knowledge of Tynes' situation, there is some speculation that the injury may be severe enough to put Tynes on IR for the year.

Josh Huston will be the man!

He sounds like he's done for sure, but I guess we have heard that many times before from players, I know he's on the Fox pre-game show this year, I think he's done though, he came close to calling it a career before last season, then came back and won his 1st SB, I think he's happy to be done now, and go out on top.

Just read this on Rotoworld:

http://www.rotoworld.com/images/pixel.gif
Giants coach Tom Coughlin admitted that the subject of pursuing Michael Strahan has come up in the wake of Osi Umenyoria's season-ending knee injury.
Coughlin wasn't specific, saying only, "Someone indicated that it was out there." Strahan is currently vacationing in Greece, so it would be a ten hour flight back. We don't see Strahan leaving his cushy broadcasting gig to return to football, but peculiar scenarios have been known to happen with recently retired NFL stars.

Latest from Rotoworld:

NFL Network's Adam Schefter contacted Michael Strahan Sunday about a potential return to football, and Strahan wouldn't rule it out.
"I haven't heard from anybody," Strahan said. GM Jerry Reese should get on the horn. Strahan's lost weight, but he could regain it while possibly playing as a situational rusher early on, then start full time by midseason.

A little more on Strahan...




Former New York Giants DE Michael Strahan is considering returning to the NFL, according to his agent, Tony Agnone. "They reached out and they talked to us about the possibility of Strahan returning," Agnone said. "It's something he's thinking about."
Agnone insisted he had no idea what the 37-year-old Strahan would decide to do, or what would happen if he told the Giants officially that he'd like to return.

Strahan is in Greece and has no immediate plans to return to the United States before the end of the week at the earliest. He's also scheduled to begin his work with Fox as a studio analyst soon, but one source close to the defensive end said getting out of that contract shouldn't be a problem.

If Strahan returns I want everyone to give him the same shit that Favre got.

I agree, you cant give Strahan the same shit that Favre got, Strahan did not make a big deal about calling it a career like Favre did, he then did not say I'm coming back I dont care what you say to the Giants like Favre did to G-Bay, this would not even be talked about right now if Osi did not get hurt, they called him, not the othet way around.

If he wanted to come back real bad, he would not be over in Greece while camp is on.

Oh I agree, that the situations are different, but remember Strahan did do the whole I'll retire, maybe I won't retire last year...

Yes the Giants called him. Yes they will offer him a buttload of money. Yes he will likely take it and come back. I was watching Berman, Emmitt and crew the other night, Emmitt is convinced that Strahan should NOT come back because he has "checked" out of the game where Favre really didn't.

I am just saying the whole retire/unretire thing... a little fishy to call one out on it and not another.

Totally agree if Osi didn't get hurt this would not even be a discussion, at least not a public one... Remember the Giants did plead with Tiki last year behind the scenes the publicly.

Not at all. Favre dilly-dally'ed for years, then retired, then when given a chance to un-retire, stayed retired, then decided he wanted to un-retire, then acted like a little child in my opinion.

Strahan may come back to help his team after a big loss to a pro-bowl DE - he is reacting to that loss in saying he may come back (and it wasn't his idea either)....totally different from Favre

Strahan says no to the Giants, yes to retirement



EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP)—Michael Strahan (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/2579/;_ylt=AvJ6NKlbt2FOqs5XNQIe5TwdsLYF) isn’t doing a Brett Favre (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/1025/;_ylt=AkrIXtrtfE6RmFXpJX5hdJQdsLYF).

The seven-time Pro Bowler decided to stay retired after seriously considering a request by the Super Bowl champion New York Giants (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/nyg/;_ylt=AtiQYI8Ww.FENKHvzy4tOFEdsLYF) to return to the team in the wake of a season-ending injury to fellow star defensive end Osi Umenyiora (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/players/6392/).

“He was very close to returning, but the great part about Michael is that he takes his time to think about things and he is very thorough,” Tony Agnone said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday night. “You can get excited about coming back and running through the tunnel one more time.”

Agnone said that Strahan struggled deciding whether he could give 100 percent mentally.

“In the end, he felt he could not get back to where he was,” Agnone said.

First I wanna say that's cool on Strahan's part...consider the return, but ultimately do what's best for him.


The Giants placed WR David Tyree (http://www.footballguys.com/TyreDa00-1.php) on the PUP list today after a slow recovery from offseason knee surgery. He will not be able to return to the team until Week 6 of the season. In addition the team waived WR Michael Jennings and signed LB James Terry, putting their roster total at 76 players. If they put Osi Umenyiora on injured reserve, that will get the Giants down to the 75-player roster limit.

Tough news for Tyree but I think we all expected it.

Two guys who made the BlackEyedJoe.com's All Name Team. Thorpe leaving town, really no big deal. Keep an eye on Monk though. Not saying draft him by any means, but if you are in a deep league or are finding yourself short on receivers due to injury as the season rolls on. Monk may surprise.

The Giants made news with the person they acquired: 44-year-old kicker John Carney. Carney will almost certainly kick in Thursday's regular-season opener against the Redskins while Lawrence Tynes continues to recover from a knee injury. Carney replaces Josh Huston, who was released. This is Carney's 21st season and he is the fifth-highest scorer in N.F.L. history. Last year, Carney made 12 of 14 field-goal attempts and 27 of 28 extra-point attempts in eight games for Jacksonville and five for Kansas City.

FOX Sports Jay Glazer is reporting that Giants WR Plaxico Burress has been suspended
for two weeks for failing to show up for work and for not returning phone calls.
He met with team officials Wednesday morning to explain the issue and apparently
they didn't buy the excuse. Coach Coughlin then informed the team of Burress' situation
and the punishment.
The punishment is for two weeks meaning Burress will miss two week's worth of pay
checks but it will only affect him for one game as the Giants are on a bye this
week.

Plaxico Burress seemingly wants to leave the New York Giants.

Drew Rosenhaus, the agent for the troubled receiver, sent an e-mail to the NFL's teams earlier this week letting them know that Burress was one of his three clients who wants to be traded.

Rosenhaus' initial e-mail to the teams said that Burress could be acquired through a trade. But the initial e-mail reportedly said that the agent had three "players desiring a trade."

The other two players are Anquan Boldin of the NFC champion Arizona Cardinals and Chad Johnson of the Cincinnati Bengals.

The Cardinals and Giants made no comments on the situation.

Burress' future has been in limbo since he shot himself in the right thigh at a New York City nightclub in late November. He was charged with felony gun possession and is due in court March 31. If convicted, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison.

Burress, 31, also faces a possible suspension by the NFL for violating its personal conduct policy.

The Giants, who signed Burress to a five-year, $35 million contract in September, have left the door open for Burress to return.

I don't think the Cards will want Burress as part of a return for Boldin. Boldin would be a good player for the Giants to go after but I don't know if they are willing to give a first round pick maybe more for a 29 year old WR who wants a huge contract.

As for Burress the Giants players all seem to really like him and since being knocked out of the playoffs all the players have said they would like him back. I think he will be back with them as long as he doesn't get into anymore trouble before the season. Unless of course he gets jail time for shooting himself.

But he keeps taking that team to the playoffs and won the superbowl. It doesn't matter if he's in the top ten or not, the point is that he is better than half the QB's in the league so they locked him up like a franchise player.

I'd say their is a big difference between "locking up" your franchise QB and turning a good (not great) QB into one of the top paid players in the league.

Making the points that the Giants make the playoffs and won a super bowl makes it sound like Eli carried/carries that team. Which he clearly does not. Where was he when Burress left?

Talent wise I wouldn't call him a top 10. I'd call guys who "haven't done shit in this league" like Rivers and Cutler more talented then him. As well as McNabb who Fly didn't include on his top 10.

giants | nicks likely out two to three weeks
sun, 13 sep 2009 20:21:23 -0700 ralph vacchiano (http://www.kffl.com/link/239), of the new york daily news (http://www.kffl.com/link/238), reports new york giants (http://www.kffl.com/team/26/nfl) wr hakeem nicks (http://www.kffl.com/player/20750/nfl) (foot) will undergo an mri on his "sprained" left foot monday, sept. 14. Nicks is expected to miss two to three weeks, according to an nfl (http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl) source. The source insisted nicks would "be ok," and he added that nicks and the team were "hoping for the best." it appeared the giants (http://www.kffl.com/team/26/nfl) do not believe nicks suffered a lis franc injury.

Bust.

Something like 5 career sacks. Good job JPP and the Giants.

I agree... High probability of a bust, but huge upside if he does not.

Burress is expected to be released from the Oneida Correctional Facility in Rome, N.Y., within the next two to three weeks, according to the New York Post, and the Giants reportedly have some interest in bringing back (http://www.nypost.com/p/sports/giants/plax_appeal_very_real_A6yllBF01K42EEMzt3UYQM) the wide receiver.

I don't get it. The Giants had a plethora of problems last season but their receivers weren't 1 of them. They were question marks going in but that was their best unit.

The Giants already have a younger and better replacement in Nicks...makes little to no sense!
