There’s no catchy motivational quote that Antrel Rolle can use this week after the New York Giants embarrassing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.
With the finger pointing usually saved for Eli Manning or the defense, former NFL head coach Tony Dungy, fired a salvo suggesting it was time for Tom Coughlin to consider life post football.
Dungy said on NBC’s “Football Night in America” that Coughlin shouldn’t be fired, but needed to step down.
Patrick: “Time to start over in New York?”
Dungy: “It really is.”
Patrick: “Where do you start when you start over?”
Dungy: “I think that you start with the coach, and Tom Coughlin should not be fired. You don’t fire coaches that have won two Super Bowls, but he should step down. This is going to be a long-term rebuilding process.”
The 3-and-9 Giants have dropped seven straight and are free falling towards their worst record since Coughlin’s first season with the team.
