There have been many New York Giants coaches since the team got its start, but who is truly the best New York Giants coach of all time? Help us answer that question by upvoting your personal favorite coaches, and downvoting any that you believe brought the team down.
If you follow football, you know that current Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has been a blessing to the franchise. He led the team to two Super Bowl victories from 2007-2011, both of which were wins against the expected winners the New England Patriots. As great as Coughlin is, longtime Giants fan also have a soft spot for the legendary Bill Parcells. Coach Parcells was head coach of the Giants from 1983-1990, and also led the team to two Super Bowl victories. In fact, both Coughlin and Parcells currently hold a lifetime 8-3 record in the playoffs, making it hard to put one over the other.
