New York Giants Head Coach Tom Coughlin Making the Rounds; Promoting New Book

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is a known stickler for the rules. He's also a proven winner. Combined, the former and latter are no mere coincidence, and in his new book, "Earn the Right to Win," Coughlin attempts to motivate anyone and everyone who reads it – football fan or not.

The book, subtitled "How Success in Any Field Starts with Superior Preparation," comes at you exactly as you'd expect – serious, hard-nosed, detailed and motivational.

"We learned that there was a purpose behind his system. He didn't enforce the rules because he wanted to catch people and punish them but rather to make sure that everyone was committed to the same purpose," former Giants defensive end Michael Strahan wrote in one passage.

The book, published by Penguin Publishing, will hit shelves on Tuesday, March 5th and over the next week, Coughlin will be making the round and promoting the new book. It will begin with an appearance on NBC's Today Show Tuesday morning and continue with a taping of CenterStage at CBS Studios on Wednesday morning and end with a spot on The Daily Show with John Stewart on Comedy Central on Thursday night.

In addition to the television appearances, Coughlin will also be doing a couple book signings.

Tuesday, March 5th
Barnes and Noble
555 Fifth Avenue at 46th Street
New York, NY 10017
12:30 PM EST – 2:30 PM EST

Monday, March 11
211 E. Ridgewood Avenue

Beginning first thing on Tuesday morning, the book can be purchased on Amazon or the Penguin Publishing website, and comes highly recommended for all fans of the New York Giants or anyone looking to succeed in any walk of life.

Update: Tom Coughlin' CenterStage taping has been rescheduled for Friday, April 12th.

      A player would get crushed for their off-field endeavours, so I’d be curious to hear if anyone has an issue with this.

      I’d also be curious to see when this was actually written. Certainly not in the last few months. Perhaps last offseason, which was before a season in which they looked unprepared at times.

        No problems over here because of what the book is about. Its a piece of motivational literature that obviously could be used as a ploy to get his team back to old form this year. I think that has a lot to do with the timing. Besides its not like you see coughlin dancing with the stars or making Subway commercials on the regular. Infact Never. Give the guy a little more credit for pushing this book now than just jumping on the fact that hes pursuing some type of offseason endeavor to fatten his pockets and just building noteriety. Coughlin is a great coach and if anybody has a problem with a book about SUPER Preparation then YOU ARE A FOOL!

    Kevros says Boothe can pull.

    All I’ve ever seen from him when he does is that he’s always late to the gap. So as far as I’m concerned he cannot pull effectively. Certainly not even close to what we saw from Snee and Seubert at their best. ANY guard can pull. But if you’re always a step late to where you need to get to reach your assigned block then that pulling is of no use.

    I have nothing against Boothe. I hope he stays. But he is not even close to an elite player and if we lose him it will not be a tragedy. I don’t “get” it. People around here hate Baas and Diehl but some seem to value Boothe quite highly. I think Baas is better than Boothe and while Diehl is seriously declining he’s still worth holding onto as insurance until they see exactly what they’ve got as alternatives.

    Watch. Baas may be part of the future of the O-line along with Beatty, Brewer and Mosley. I sincerely doubt that Boothe is figured as part of that group. I hope they can keep him for 2013 but highly doubt he is in their long-term plans except as a possible interior depth player. They need better, and they can get better.

    I think a lot has to do with the inherent difficulty in rating offense linemen. It’s problematic accurately gauging their performance. There’s an abundance of teamwork involved, quite a few moving parts, and no simple statistics to fall back on. So mythologies naturally arise. A couple weeks ago Will Beatty was one of the top 3 LOTs in the world, and heading for a $10,000,000 per annum contract. Now Boothe is this week’s wunderkind. And always there’s the pack of wolves at the door. Armed with sharp teeth and bags of money … howling for a shot at these exciting Giants free agents.

    The truth is that Boothe is ‘a guy’. Decent, solid … but decidedly average. He’ll get an offer from us that reflects his level of ability. It might even be a bit better given his knowledge of the system and his years of service. And then he and his agent will go shopping. Maybe they’ll find something marginally higher … who knows. But I’m with FF55, and will lose no sleep if he does.

    “If Kate and Rooney didn’t shove all those PSL dollars up their noses then the cheap-a$$ Maras could pay Coughlin enough so he wouldn’t have to sell a stupid book on TV like the freakin’ Sham Wow guy.”
