Didn't take notes for the Beason interview with Papa and Pioli
but a paraphrased summary:
-He plays better when given more responsibility. Loves having the helmet with plays called. Said John Fox would change up terminology almost every week on Wednesdays, so he's used to picking up any change(s) in terminology
-Says his perception of TC was different as an opponent as he's definitely a "player's coach."
-Says yes he's anal about time but is so prepared even down to the minutia and EVERY DAY comes in with super energy and always has something each day to present to the team that is upbeat and useful..Very positive coach
-Was told when he met with Reese and TC that they(Giants) need someone on the field who can organize, control and take charge of things. Beason said he simply told them, "no problem."
-At dinner last night with some of the players, Jacobs was recounting how when he was in SF, TC would call from time to time to see how he was doing..Needless to say BJ loves TC
-Pioli recounted when he first met TC he(TC) had not played a game yet with the New Jaguars and was in Browns' camp taking notes and Pioli was a gofer for the Browns..He said he could not believe how TC treated him as though Pioli was an important member of the Browns..before TC left, he went out of his way to thank Pioli for all that he did for him, which stunned Pioli
Those who may have listened to the interview can correct anything I misheard or add anything I may have forgotten to add..
the guys were obviously happy as you always hace long range goals, but obviously it's a game to game thing
Not something we as Giant fans don't already know.
I miss having Sirius. Love these kinds of interviews they have. Tom really is an impressive man and coach. I think he's got another 5 years left in him EASILY. He wouldn't know what to do with himself if he's home. His wife Judy would go nuts, lol. This might sound sacrilegious, but TC reminds me somewhat of the late, great John Wooden.
is really something. Thanks for posting Fiddy.
he's intelligent enough to get the job done. He's what we need in a MIKE. Recognize offenses, prepare his ass off, plays 3 downs, and is very bright. We need him to stay healthy.
Over the bye week. Its amazing the difference a real Mike backer has made to the defense
If you were Beason, would you take something now to minimize risk, or would you wait till the offseason in hopes of raising the offer?
|Did he use the word

Now we just need a JerseyJoe 7-point plan
Reese really did well on this trade... And BEASTon is only 28.
Its almost like when we got AP...the difference having a good QB of the defense was remarkable. Hopefully Beason can stay healthy and be that QB on our defensive side. And yes very bright individual. That comes through in his interviews.
TC = class act...which is partly why ownership won't fire him. TC is leaving on his own terms I think.
with a local sports show here in NC. I used to listen to him (and Steve Smith) a couple days each week all year long. He's a passionate dude and knows his responsibilities, as well as that of others. Injuries has been his set back. If he can stay healthy AND we can resign him, fucking steal.
so not sure who would pay what for a still in his prime Mike. In this case, should he get through the year (possibly before)uninjured, I might even overpay somewhat on a longer term contract..
as one of the greatest moves Reese has ever made.
...if we had made LB a priority pick. This is definitive proof of what this kind of player brings to this defense.
Barrow was a gift when inexplicably, at 29, he was cut loose by the Panthers, instantly became a FA and the Giants pounced. Iirc, didn't he and his wife watch and break down(?) film together?
about TC is the lack of awarness at times during games in regards to clock management. That 3 and 2 that went to 3 and 7 due to delay of game you could see from a mile away. I was screaming for 5 seconds to call time out. Also the inconsistent treament at times. Cruz slipped down costing a possible TD in the first quarter. I didn't see TC throwing a fit on the sideline like he did with Donnell on Monday night. Overall it has been a great run. Myself, I'm hoping he retires after the season. For my own curosity, I'd like to see what the team could do under different leadership.
it is Eli's responsibility to manage the clock at that point, no?
I don't recall the last time a HC called a TO when his QB was under center or in a shotgun, it's usually the QB who calls it
It's set for five minutes before

All coaches show some inconsistent treatment. Do you think Parcells was consistent in the way he treated LT verses other players? Part of it is what has he done for him in the past.
is how did Chase Blackburn take over for this guy?
he has been head and shoulders better than any LB we have had in half a decade... whats the deal w/ that?
off how you can be successful in this world without being a dick. The more I read about TC the more I find that I would like to emulate and apply in my own life and career.
comment also, with Cruz slipping is waaaaaayyyyyyy different than a guy running out of the back of the endzone, not knowing where he is
he will be hard to replace and sorely missed once he is gone. IMO it is clear the shortest path back to winning another championship if with TC leading the way.
I certainly wouldn't argue that
Chase Blackburn did not supplant Beason, Kuechly did. Beason is not an OLB which Carolina tried to make him.
Thanks for posting that interview. Great thread to be able to read.
thanks for posting. I know that we now have the benefit of hindsight, but I couldn't believe people were freaking out about giving up a freakin 7th round pick for this guy. Herzlich is just so bad that it was bound to be an upgrade, and it's been a significant upgrade. I really hope we can re-sign this guy, because it seems like he's done a good job at improving his FA stock
This is nothing I and most here didn't already know about Coughlin. But, apparently, there are still many who need convincing. I especially love to read comments like this in relation to being a player's coach. That notion that he is anything but has long been dispelled for most fans. He is outstanding as an on field and off field coach. You would be hard pressed to find another coach that cares more about his players as individuals and men than Coughlin. He may not look like everything you would expect in a football coach, but i get the impression most of these guys would run through walls for him. I LOVE having him as the Giants HC.
the more I read and hear, the happier I am with this deal. First of all, I had no problem with dealing a 7th rounder from the start. I didn't understand what people were expecting Reese to do. You can't deal much less, let alone to get a player of his caliber. As long as he was healthy, this was going to be a steal.
Second of all, his individual play and the residual effects on the rest of the D have already backed up this deal. Now, we can only hope he was serious when he said last week that he didn't want to play for any other franchises in his career. It sounds like he really loves Coughlin already. I would love to see him re-sign and anchor this D for a few years.
But I'm going next year, just to see Tom Coughlin lead this team. He is an impressive man who I honestly think could be a leader anywhere.
TC on Beason today:
|Q: How does a player get traded during the season, for a late round pick by the way, and walk into a locker room and so quickly develop such respect and leadership qualities and essentially quarterback your defense like Jon Beason has?
A: He’s again upbeat, has that personality, an outgoing personality, a very confident personality. He’s had success in the game. He loves the game. He speaks with an aura of authority of having been there. I think the players have responded well to his aggressive style. Let’s face it, he’s an aggressive football player. He’s looking to make hits and tackles and I think the players have responded to that.
Totally forgot that was out, going to pick that up.

Coughlin is well aware of the playclock. The reason this crap is happening is because Eli has to spend 10 seconds telling the new guys wear they SHOULD be lined up after the play-call.
I think this will be less of a factor moving forward.
I recalled something else he said this morning..
He said, we were the first team ever to finish 9-7 amd win the Super Bowl, so why not be the first to ever make the playoffs after starting out 0-6.
Sure, it may be unrealistic, but if that attitude pervades the entire Lockerroom, then who can question the motivation of this entire squad?
We may have just ended up with more Clint Simtins who ended up sucking. As for Eli and the clock, whether it's him or the system, that's always been a problem. It has nothing to do with new guys this year.
So basically Beason is "the Giants should tank for the draft picks" fans worst nightmare (grin)
very low risk but high reward, it is clear his leadership is playing a big role for the defense.
