In 2004, the New York Giants underwent a regime change when they fired Jim Fassel and hired Tom Coughlin, a proven coach and disciplinarian who many thought would turn this Giants team around like he did with the Jaguars as their first coach.

He was a disciple of Bill Parcells and a former Giants assistant, which made him an instant favorite among fans.

Along with his hire, the Giants possessed the fourth pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, and very early on it was clear they were after Ole Miss QB Eli Manning.

They had to move up to get him, but the two would begin their career with the Giants that season.

He brought the city a championship in 2007, but what are some of the mistakes he has made over the years that may have prevented the Giants from winning multiple championships? Or even just making the playoffs in the years that they missed them?
