Antonio Pierce, who was released by the New York Giants this off-season, said that Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is on the hot seat this season. Apparently, there are a lot of issues within the locker and with management. Even with the off-the-field issues, Coughlin has had a lot of success on the field.

Coughlin has a 55-41 record as the Giants head coach. Coughlin has taken the Giants to the playoffs in four of his six seasons with the team. Famously, Coughlin’s 2007 Giants defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII. However, after defensive coordinator Steve Spagnolo bolted for the St. Louis Rams head coaching vacancy in 2008, the Giants became one of the worst units in the league. Under defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan, the Giants gave up 427 points, third worst in the league. Sheridan has been fired, but there is definitely a sense of urgency within the organization.

Do you think Pierce’s statements are accurate?
