Jonathan Tisch soutient Tom Coughlin

Jusqu’à présent, les 2 co-propriétaires les plus connus de la franchise – John Mara et Steve Tisch – ont refusé de se prononcer sur l’avenir de Tom Coughlin.

Ce n’est pas le cas de Jonathan Tisch, l’autre co-propriétaire et trésorier de la franchise, qui exprime publiquement son soutien envers le head coach des Giants:

“There’s nothing wrong with the New York Giants that a few more ‘Ws’ won’t fix,. Obviously, we’ve gotten off to a very disappointing start, but, . . . Tom Coughlin is one of the finest leaders in the NFL. We have two trophies in the lobby of our [practice facility] that we won in the last few years that attest to his leadership.”

Bien entendu, Tisch reconnaît que le début de saison est décevant mais il continue de croire que tout n’est pas perdu:

“We know we’ve gotten off to a very disappointing start, but we know Coach Coughlin is working with the other coaches and the other players to really turn the season around. We can still be there [in the playoffs]. . . . Sports are a metaphor for life, and sometimes things don’t go the way you want them to. But we know that we have very good players who come to practice every single day, work their rear ends off and want to win as much as the fans want them to win.”

Si techniquement Jonathan Tisch a raison de croire que les Giants ne sont pas encore éliminés des playoffs, y parvenir est une autre histoire.
