COACH: TOM COUGHLIN
EIGHTH SEASON WITH THE GIANTS (65--47)
Coughlin's grandfatherly appearance matches his old-school approach to the game: It's possible that no other coach was more disappointed to see that two-a-days have gone the way of leather helmets. Coughlin has had only one losing season with the Giants—his first, in '04—but the team has missed the playoffs for two straight years. Still, he signed a contract extension in July that takes him through the 2012 season.
