New York Giants News: Tom Coughlin well aware that he's on the hot seat

Following a disheartening 25-24 road loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday - a loss made even more frustrating knowing that the New York Giants held a 21-3 halftime advantage - head coach Tom Coughlin is well aware of where the fingers will be pointed when addressing the team's 3-9 record.

“I am responsible,” Coughlin said in the final remarks of his Monday press conference, via Tom Pedulla of the New York Times. “I accept full responsibility and whatever price has to be paid for that responsibility, then it starts right here with me.”

At 68 years of age and in the midst of his 19th year as an NFL head coach, Coughlin knows full well what happens when the losses pile up in a results-driven business like that of football.

"Everybody in this organization lives and dies with how this football team does,” he said. “I understand that completely.”

Starting quarterback Eli Manning told reporters that Coughlin implored the team to tune out the coaching change rumors, saying that the coach wants the players to "worry about getting a win, worry about Tennessee, and not anything that may or may not occur after the season."
