Rex took over a 9-7 team and went 9-7 and 10-5, 8-8 and probably 8-8 again, how do you compare the two again?
This thread is about learning as a coach. Coughlin had a completely different style until about 5-6 years ago when he was being called out by players, media, fans, etc., for it. He learned from past mistakes, he changed his approach. that's what I was talking about
