the Tom Coughlin video

    No, not that kind.
    But this was hilarious watching the Giants celebrate their win over the Patriots as if it were February of 2008. Bopping, dancing, chanting, then Coughlin gets lifted atop shoulders. It was definitely a different side of him. And then everyone drops to one knee and starts to pray ...

    Please move this to the NFL thread if that's where it best belongs. But I have a hunch the video's release could come back to haunt the Giants. They were very humble with their post-game comments, if that matters.

    I'm a Giants fan but they're a real bi-polar team. Lethargic amd self-sabotaging one minute, supremely confident the next.

    This is just them at the peak of their manic phase ("Hey, we've got whole thing licked!") Come next week, the mood will swing back to being depressed, missing easy catches, staring blankly into corners, reading Sylvia Plath, etc. etc.

    It's a big win. But I'm guessing that the Giants and Coughlin will be more than a little embarrassed that there is footage of them celebrating like they won the Super Bowl after a regular-season win.

    Hey, they beat the Hood, the man who invented football and the QB who can do no wrong. Suck, it Patriots. NYG can celebrate all they want.

    That was a pretty dramatic and emotional victory. I see nothing wrong with celebrating it. Why should it be embarrassing? Is only a Super Bowl title worth cheering about?

    I thought John Harbaugh getting doused with Gatorade last night was on the same level of ridiculousness as Coughlin's. It's a regular season game in the middle of the season. Act like you've been there before.

    lighten up, ffrancis. sheesh. the nfl gets ripped for being the 'no fun league' and coughlin is ripped constantly by outsiders who view him as a dictatorial maniac hated by his players. then they show the OTHER side, celebrate another huge win over the patriots to start a stretch of games EVERYONE has predicted will expose them as frauds, and you want to tell 'em, 'act like you've won before?'

    hey, they didnt do this ON THE FIELD or on the patriots faces. it was THEIR post-game locker room celebration. you're a dunce on this one, pal. you too, mizzoo.

    i dunno what happened with the niners and the gatorade, but if they doused harbaugh at the end of the game that' certainly not unheard of, even in the regular season. heck, when the giants began the coach-dousing craze in '86 it kicked off in the regular season.

    seems to me some nfl fans are the ones trying to take 'fun' out of the equation. if you're celebrating on YOUR sideline or in YOUR locker room what's the problem?

    Oh, come on. Big victories, both of them. That's how you celebrate a big victory.

    Leave it to the media types to twist this into a Super Bowl celebration. Sheeeesh.

    Can the players not have some fun in the locker room? Can they not be human?

    LeBron James and Dwyane Wade don't see what the problem is.

    huh? sorry if you're so thin-skinned to think i'm being a 'dick' or a giants' homer. whatever. doesn't change for sec that you're WAY off on this one.

    Asking, not arguing:

    For those of you offended by the celebration, does the mob greeting the guy who hit a walk-off homer in a regular-season game bother you, also, or do you think baseball culture makes that OK?
