5. Tom Coughlin
It makes me really sad to put this coach on the list. Although New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has won two Super Bowls, he hasn’t made it to the playoffs in three years. Three years is a long time especially when he isn’t getting any younger at the age of 68.
He should have high hopes this year though with quite a solid team. The Giants have a healthy Eli Manning who is coming off one of his best statistical years in his career.
They also have one of the best receiving corps in the league with the breakout sensation Odell Beckham Jr. who had 91 receptions and 1,305 yards in only 12 games, a healthy Victor Cruz, a hungry Rueben Randle, and a newly signed James Jones. They also helped strengthen their offensive line by signing Marshall Newhouse and CFL star Brett Jones.
With their offense looking almost dominant in their division this might be the best time in the past three years they have of making the playoffs. Coughlin must prove he can make it to the playoffs again this year and isn’t a coach just running out the clock to retire.
