Giants coach Tom Coughlin has long been rumored to be unpopular with his players.  Of course, winning games will wash over personal animosities, but the Giants' disappointing first-round playoff exits have't exactly been confidence-builders, especially when the regular seasons are marred by 4th quarter meltdowns and mental mistakes (the very things hardass coaches supposedly eliminate).  Basically, it's a mystery how he still has a job. 

And now this: if the Giants had fired Coughlin last season, they might still have Tiki Barber on the roster.

"If Tom Coughlin had not remained as head coach of the Giants, I might still be in a Giants uniform," Barber wrote in his upcoming book "Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond," excerpts of which were obtained by the Daily News.

"[Coughlin] robbed me of what had been one of the most important things I had in my life, which was the joy I felt playing football… I had lost that. He had taken it away."

Well, this should be a fun story to follow: Incompetent Dickhead versus Chicken-Hearted Spotlight Hog — WHO YA GOT!?!?  Call it a hunch, but I think the Sunday Night Football crew may have Tiki's back.
