08:36 AM ET 01.04 | Tom Coughlin is about to enter the final season of a four-year, $21 million contract. But now that John Mara has announced Coughlin will be back for 2011, despite the Giants missing the playoffs with a 10-6 record, the team will redo his deal because of a long-standing policy not to let head coaches enter the final year of a contract. What's unknown, though, is just how much of a commitment ownership is willing to make. The owners could give him a one-year extension like they did after the tumultuous 2006 season. They could go longer. "I haven't really given that a lot of thought yet," Mara said. "I just know he's going to be back here next year."

In other words, 2011 will be a make or break year for Coughlin <yawn>

I would miss Coughlin going ballistic on the sidelines any time the NY offense turns the ball over...which is a lot.

Coughlin is a solid, proven NFL Head Coach, but he has to cut some ties with some of his assistants. That is what the owners and GM need to be talking about.
That and figuring out why they have the worst set of linebackers in their history. It is all 4 and no 3 in that group.

Blow it out of your goal posts.

Love it.

I love Coughlin and I am glad that he will be here for the 2011 season. However, some changes do need to be made and I hope the fans will be listened to. Let's get our stuff together and play for a whole season and not just half of it. There are 16 games in the regular season boys, not 8. And, there are 4 quarters in a game...PLAY ALL 4!!! GO BIG BLUE!!!
