Another History Lesson

Today, Dan writes about Belichick and Coughlin's time together on the staff of Bill Parcells' New York Giants. Parcells provides a few quotes, nothing very revealing. Both are serious minded and don't talk much.

If you look at it more closely, the relationship reveals itself to be less interesting. Belichick was the defensive coordinator and spent over ten years either working with or for Parcells. Coughlin was a wide receivers coach and spent three years with Parcells. I am sure much more will be made out of these three seasons in two men's 30+ year careers.

Of course Shank could provide us with something substantive, such as Tom Coughlin's career record against the Patriots as a head coach, with the Jaguars and the Giants - I offhand don't know, I think it is 1-4, the one win coming in the 1998 playoffs against an injury-shattered Patriots squad.

No wait, that would require Shank to actually do some work.

Hey Bruce, you want insipid, then look in the mirror. Shank owes his readers some actual substance for a change.

BTW, I checked, and Coughlin's record against the Patriots is indeed 1-4.
