EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants' are Tom Coughlin's team. Make no mistakes.
The Maras and Tischs own the NFC champions. General manager Jerry Reese built them and made them Super Bowl ready.
This team though is all Coughlin. The expression the players have used in their recent five-game run to the title game is "all in," and it's all in Tom's way. They have bought in 100 percent with their 65-year-old coach, and he is enjoying every second of it.
When the Giants (12-7) ended the Patriots' 20-game regular-season winning streak at home in November, Coughlin was hoisted in the air by his players. He loved it.
When they went through a four-game losing streak right after that, he kept them together. And when they won Sunday, they hugged.
