Mike Tanier F YOU

From your horse faced article back in AUgust where you ranked Tom Coughlin DEAD LAST in the NFL Coaching Rankings you puked forth. F YOU

32 Giants (Last Year: 14)

Howlin’ Tom Coughlin alienates veterans and terrifies rookies with his abrasive style and obsession with picayune rules. Coughlin promises to be a mellower fellow this season; he’s reached Stage 3 of Coaching Cluelessness (”bargaining”) and should reach “acceptance” sometime soon. Kevin Gilbride is a refugee from the run-and-shoot era who specializes in getting his quarterbacks flattened. He thinks Max Protect is a 1980s cartoon superhero, so Eli Manning had better be ready for the blindside blitz. The Giants fired defensive coordinator Tim Lewis, their best coach, after his injury-plagued defense fell apart last season. Replacement Steve Spagnuolo is a longtime Eagles assistant who plans to install a more blitz-oriented attack. When the whole staff is fired on January 7th, Spagnuolo will land on his feet.

I'm guessing 50% of BBI agreed with him.
Good stuff, Joey.

dumb space-filler in an article that was written to draw clicks in the slow season. But Tanier is very good when he focuses on doing what he does best: breaking down plays and formations. I think most of us remember his article from October, on the Giants' 4-DE package:

Way too much "I told you so" going on right now. Coughlin and the coaching staff deserved all the shit they got coming into this season. The team was an undisciplined mess with an offensive coordinator designing schemes for failure. But guess what? They turned it around. The coaches got better and started playing to Eli's strengths, Eli got better by making better decisions and also by having more dependable WRs/TEs running patterns at the end of the year (Boss & Smith), and the defense has really figured this scheme out.

So you can sit here with the "I told you so" but wouldn't it better to acknowledge that Coughlin and Co. really had some improving to do and to their credit they actually did and now it's paying big dividends?

TC was rated the worst coach in their player poll. How many of the 31 better coaches are still in the league?
Joey, you should start a blog.  
Randy in CT : 1/22/2008 11:53 am : link
I'd read it. Most definitely!

I told them so in August, so I'm entitled. Plus I'm cool and I totally kick ass at drinking.

I don't post anymore as the negativity drives me nuts,but you had written the best post of the year after the first GB game.
I don't recall the exact title but it was referencing the defense and was titled something like this.."Don't worry guys,it may not be as bad as it looks".
You made the point that in learning a new system the players are not reacting immediately or instinctively - that equates to maybe a loss of a half of step and that makes a huge difference.
It was a brave and insightful post because frankly the defense looked horrible and I admit to having little hope based on what I saw over the first 2 weeks.
I always considered you one of the very few posters who has any football comments worth listening to.As it turns out - you were exactly right.

Thanks man. I really felt good about this group after what I saw in camp and I just did not believe the team we saw after GB was what we'd be at the end of year.

It was this article actually.


I still believed - ( New Window )

WHY the hell don't you man-up and admit that you could not have been anymore wrong?

Lets try to write articles this next off season with at least a basis of some kind of intelligence, and stop with such utter foolishness as crowning Tim Lewis the Giants best coach. I mean that right there shows a complete lack of any kind of real football knowledge. I know your smart, so I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you were playing the "Lets write nonsense to generate clicks to our slow ass site" game.

Man the hell UP"""


His response:

"""I would be upset if I wasn't 100 percent certain that you were calling WFAN and crying for Bill Cowher when the Giants started out 0-2. Enjoy the Super Bowl."""



My response to that:

"""Well you would be wrong, but what the hell, that is something your obviously used to as shown by your laughable Coach Rankings, and countless other examples.

As I figured, you lack the nads to man-up, another so-called "Media Expert" who does not know squat (still laughing over the "Lewis is the Giants best coach") trying to pretend they have some kind of special info. Keep up the good work though, you might actually get to the 100 clicks a day point on your web site. If not? just post more idiocy and you can claim it's a parody site like "The Onion". Hell you could even call it "Football knowledge from a dipshit""""
