Originally posted by Big BadSpeaking of the Giants, what was up with Terry Bradshaw's anti-Coughlin rant on FOX NFL Sunday? It seemed really out of nowhere.
A lot of former players are going off on Coughlin lately. Tony Siragusa didn't seem to have a good opinion of the man, and some of the ESPN guys were even questioning his leadership. I guess he fined 4 players for showing up early to a team meeting, but they didn't show up early enough. For more on Bradshaw's comments, there's an article in Newsday: Here (newsday.com)
Ya, ESPN.com is saying that his meetings start "five minutes early" and that the players were only "three minutes early" so they were being fined for being to a meeting three minutes early.
In high school our orchestra teacher/conductor had a saying: "If you're early then you're on time, and if you're on time then you're late. Don't be late."
For all intents and purposes then, the meetings start at 5 of instead of on the dot, or whatever the time is. So yeah, those guys are late.
I don't like Coughlin. I can't say I paid any attention to him at his prior jobs, but he just looks so angry on the sidelines. Not that he should be happy with losing, but everytime they cut to him he looked PISSED. I hope he doesn't last long in NY.
He drives me nuts. Listen for when he mispronounces a word. It's like he's reading stuff his staff wrote for him on the fly (or it's stuff he didn't remember writing), and isn't expecting a difficult word to sneak in there. It cracks me up.
