09:33 AM ET 12.15 | Giants legend Lawrence Taylor has all the respect in the world for what Tom Coughlin has accomplished with Big Blue, but the NFL's greatest defensive player said it's time to sack the two-time Super Bowl winning coach. "Tom Coughlin has done wonders for the Giants. Personally, I don't know if I could play for him, but the guy is a winner, he is a fighter. But I think it is time for him to take his talents on the road," Taylor told The Post Saturday night at the David Ortiz Celebrity Golf Classic. "He's done all he can do for the Giants. If he wants to coach, I think he needs to take his philosophies to another team. "After a while, the players just stop listening. I respect the man, but it's time. As much as I like Coughlin and the job he has done, it's time for a shakeup."

December 15, 2013  10:07 AM ET

Thee is some truth in what he said. After a while some players do stop listening. But if your head coach knows what he is doing, and I believe Coughlin does, then you get rid of the guys who stopped listening and bring in fresh ears.

As many as NINE and at the least seven of the 22 starters on this team will be someplace else next year.

" I don't know if I could play for him" I'm sure all those zeros at the end of your paycheck would help you with that decision.

Pretty much. This has all happened before. It's amazing how quickly people turn on Tom Coughlin.

Underaged ones. And tell 'em LT sent you.

Fran Tarkenton. Joe Namath. Lawrence Taylor.

These are my top three retired players that I wish would just ****.

Is the Dominican Republic the new hideout for celebs? Big Pappi has a golf charity and LT and Arod show up and shoot their mouths off. Long lines in front of the health clinics there I am guessing.

Pappi probably had problems getting 501-c certification. He should talk to Tim Finchem, Roger Goodell or Gary Bettman.

They don't seem to have any problems with seeing that the PGA, NFL & NHL do business as 501-c's.

I loved Lawernce as a Player, but it's not Tommy Boys Fault! Everyone is to blame!

Never quite understood how that worked. They really don't fall under the category of those that "operate exclusively for the promotion of social welfare".

After watching OTL this morning and seeing that for the first time, I'm still trying to figure it out myself.

The PGA, NFL & NHL are 501-c's and are exempt from paying taxes?



Seriously?

But they don't want to pay the doctor bills for the players that helped build the league. It's how the rich get richer.

THe only thing LT has shown any aptitude for in his life is playing linebacker. In all other areas he has been a dismal failure, if not a criminally dismal failure. Who cares what he thinks? Oh yeah - that's right. The New York Media.

Nevermind.

Probably how they keep that non-profit shield intact.
