Many people would believe that at the beginning of the regular season, the Giants had no chance to be on top of their division heading into Week 8 of the NFL season. Even Giants fans were quite uneasy heading into the season. After that terrible Week 1 performance against the Washington Redskins, Giants fans were down right scared.
But under the leadership of head coach Tom Coughlin the Giants are 4-2 and find themselves in the middle of the playoff picture.
Although the emergence of Eli Manning has also been extremely important for the success of the team, I believe that the Giants aren't where they are if they had another head coach. Despite the collapse of last year, the Giants organization (and rightfully so) trusted Coughlin and it appears as if they have made the right decision.
There are numerous reasons why he has been so successful as a coach of the G-Men and these exact reasons are why the Giants will win the NFC East.
