Remember what John Madden said in his speech when he got inducted? When they shut the lights off and lock the door, all the busts in the Hall talk to each other. I’m telling you, Parcells will hold his own in every one of those conversations. I guarantee that.
Head coach Tom Coughlin in quote released by the NY Giants - Mike Garafolo
On Eli: “I was always his biggest supporter, even days he wasn’t on, ’cause I could sense he didn’t have thick skin. Then I went away, and I thought he would come see me, but nothing, not a letter, in two years. I don’t want to say it was a slap in the face, but I thought our relationship was better than that.”
He also felt Coughlin didn’t treat him like a man.
“After my situation happened, I turned on the TV, and the first words out his mouth was ‘sad and disappointing.’ ” Burress said. “I’m like, forget support — how about some concern? I did just have a bullet in my leg.
“And then I sat in his office, and he pushed back his chair and goes, ‘I’m glad you didn’t kill anybody!’ Man, we’re paid too much to be treated like kids. He doesn’t realize that we’re grown men and actually have kids of our own.
The Giants did offer to Plaxico Burress, but coach Tom Coughlin speculated it was less guaranteed money than the Jets gave him.
“Plax went for the Jets guaranteed money. Source said today if offers were equal, he wanted to go to Giants.” - @garymyersNYDN
I am grateful for the opportunity.
What was being said was taken the wrong way. I was not trying to compare Coach Coughlin to Rex Ryan.
Outstanding. Outstanding finish to the ball game.
We did our part, OK? That’s all I can ask you to do. Hey, from the bottom of my heart and everybody’s, we have a 10-6 season. A 10-win season in the NFL, OK? They can kiss my (expletive), OK? They can line up and kiss my (expletive). It’s not an easy thing to do.
