09:50 AM ET 08.04 | At a time in life when most people would be spending all of their time with their spouse and their grandkids, Tom Coughlin is still hard at work in an overly demanding profession, showing no outward signs that retirement is near. There has been plenty of league-wide speculation that Coughlin's 18th season as an NFL head coach, his 10th with the Giants, could finally be his last. Those that believe that, though, haven't seen Coughlin at work and they don't understand his uncommon desire. He has overseen one of the most successful eras in franchise history. He has won two of the last six Super Bowls. "His legacy," as Giants co-owner John Mara says, "is secure." Just don't try telling that to him.

Don't worry Tom, the next thread is talking about Mike Wallace and he died last year.

How is it we still have any unemployment at all when the bar is so low in the media?

The Giants are the most dangerous when everyone is calling for Tom's head.

I doubt it. I think he is having more fun now, and the guy can coach.

The truth of the matter is, I don't think their's anyone on the Giants Tougher than Tom and There going to have to tear that Coach's Shirt off his back and I don't believe any of his guys want to deal with the embarrassment!!!

I totally agree with you. He ha nothing left to prove, is at the top of his profession, and is young and healthy for his age. He is enjoying the wave.

So if I am to understand this article it is about the following: Coughlin is old and people are speculating that he will retire after this year but he hasn't said so and seems to enjoy his job.

How is this journalism?

coughlin will coach as long as he wants not when some intern thinks coughlin should retire. that intern should quit and find something he is good at.

I get the impression these days that many articles are written with one hand on the smart phone and the other gripping the bar stool so the writer doesn't fall off.

Giants fans were calling for him to be fired before he won his first Super Bowl.

Of course he can coach otherwise he'd be unemployed.

Coughlin has done a great job. NY's drive-by media slam him consistently yet although they miss the playoffs a lot, they win rings. He's a better coach than Parcells, in my opinion.
