Yes, we’re talking about the Giants’ Super Bowl XLII upset over the Patriots, denying New England a chance at producing the NFL’s first undefeated season since the 1972 Dolphins. Former Giants head coach Tom Coughlin will be going into detail about this monumental triumph in A Giant Win, which will also include a foreword from his quarterback, Eli Manning.
Here’s the description of Coughlin’s book, as seen on Grand Central Publishing:
Legendary Giants coach Tom Coughlin takes readers inside his coaching masterpiece: Super Bowl XLII when Eli Manning and the underdog Giants beat the undefeated, 18-0 Patriots of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.
Super Bowl XLII was the greatest upset in NFL history. In A GIANT WIN, Coach Tom Coughlin recounts the strategies and people that made it possible.
Coach Coughlin reveals the intricacies of the game, revealing details only a coach would know. He also details, more than ever before, his relationships with some of the greatest, most iconic players of those Giants teams, like Eli Manning and Michael Strahan.
A GIANT WIN also provides a frame for Coach Coughlin to discuss his life in football—including his years with the Giants as an assistant coach in the late 1980s and 1990, when he helped win a Super Bowl working under Hall of Fame Head Coach Bill Parcells and alongside the coach he’d oppose in Super Bowl XLII: Bill Belichick.
A GIANT WIN is a self-portrait of one of football history’s most successful coaches during his signature game.
This should be a very fun read. I mean, what Giants fan doesn’t want to get more details about this win? One can only imagine the stories Coughlin has in that brain of his. After all, he’s a football lifer and has a 20-year head coaching career on his resume.
For those who can’t wait for the book to officially get released on December 6th of this year, you can pre-order it on Grand Central Publishing’s website for $30.
