This is from Vic Carucci at NFL.com Random thoughts ยป The buzz around the Giants is how Tom Coughlin has lost that warm, fuzzy persona that he was showing during the team's six-game winning streak. All it took was the Week 10 loss to the Cowboys, and Coughlin was back to wearing a scowl and offering curt answers in his postgame news conference. Face it ... warm and fuzzy doesn't work for Coughlin. And as hard as he tried to carry off a friendlier demeanor, everyone knew it was only a matter of time before he would revert to the guy he has been for the vast majority of his coaching career. After two losses to the Cowboys and a loss to the Packers, Coughlin also came to the harsh realization that his team doesn't belong with the NFC elite.
