Well the fact is that Coughlin was with the Giants for 3 seasons at that point and their records were: 6-10, 11-5 and 8-8 never advancing past the first round in the playoffs. Hardly a successful run and not even close to what Rex has accomplished with the Jets.
Francessa is a hypocrite who doesn't like Rex. Plus he's butt hurt that his source on all things Jets, Mike Tannenbaum, won't be there anymore but Rex will. You see, Tanny was the last person in the Jets organization that was connected to Francessa's b/f Bill Parcells. That's how Rex would find out information on the Jets. Now that is gone and he will be left in the dark. It's the same reason Mehta is writing terrible stuff about the Jets right now, he knows the jig is up once Sparano gets fired.
Ernie Accorsi retired, he wasn't dismissed. Big difference. It was part of a succession plan.
