N.Y. Giants vs. Washington Redskins preview: Keeping RGIII inside the tackle box

N.Y. Giants vs. Washington Redskins preview: Keeping RGIII inside the tackle box
BY SAM HITCHCOCK

COMMENTARY

In their Week 6 statement victory, the New York Giants stamped their “Super Bowl contender” card by shellacking the San Francisco 49ers (their opponent from last year’s NFC Championship game) 26-3, proving once again that when motivated they are pretty darn good.

When head coach Tom Coughlin retires, he will go down as one of sports’ all-time greatest motivators. People love to flatter Alabama coach Nick Saban and Niners coach Jim Harbaugh for their ability to rally their teams, but Saban could not cut it in the professional ranks, and Harbaugh (while young) has no rings and just got his butt kicked by Coughlin’s team.

Despite the three coaches all being austere and laconic with the media, Coughlin seems to be the one who receives the smallest spotlight. But similarly to Bill Belichick, Coughlin appears to relish the disconnect the media feels with him.

The team that “nobody picks to win/nobody believes in,” as Coughlin loves to publicly state during press conferences, sits atop the NFC East perch with a 4-2 record. They won three games against teams who collectively have posted a 4-9 record in games that do not include their matchup with the Giants, but established legitimacy in their victory over their formidable foes from the City by the Bay.
