COUGHLIN REVEALS PARCELL’S SOFTER SIDE
Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin told a couple of stories about Hall of Famer Bill Parcells to the Post’s Paul Schwartz.
“Bill was a guy who on the practice field knew exactly what he wanted and his expectations were very high. When he conducted staff meetings there wasn’t a lot of excess discussion about things, it was expressed, how we practiced, we put our practices together that way, our gameplans that way, our Saturday night meetings, the way in which we played the game. He had his hand in everything obviously that was conducted.
He made a call or sent a very, very nice note both times we won the Super Bowl. Very personal. Bill has a great knack, he says exactly what is on his mind and he says it exactly the way he wants to say it. He left me a very nice message when I got fired in Jacksonville, too. Different times after different games when I was at Boston College, we beat Notre Dame and he left me a message and said some nice things about how the team played and that type of thing.”
TWEET OF THE DAY
“A goal at the end of the year is to always play in a Super Bowl and to win a Super Bowl and its good to have those long term goals that you want to have. You have to make the short term goals as well and we have to each day get better at something and each practice be focused on doing our jobs well and doing it at a high level and so it’s kind of good to have it there as a reminder, but we have to also worry about this next practice and these preseason games and handle our business and doing everything well to make sure we are getting into the playoffs and hopefully be able to make a run.” – QB Eli Manning on the Giants’ objectives
