Eli Manning is one of many players who are having a tough time accepting the fact that Tom Coughlin’s has coached his last game for the New York Football Giants. Coughlin decided to step down as coach on Monday, yet not retire, which left many players uneasy. According to TheScore, Coughlin had a special message for Eli during his farewell speech which put Eli in a very emotional state.
Tom Coughlin is the only NFL coach Eli knows. Manning has spent his entire 12-year career with the New York Giants playing under Coughlin so I understand why he’s emotional. A part of Eli feels like he was the reason for Coughlin stepping down and I expect him to use that as motivation next season. The rest of the NFC East might want to watch out for Eli.
