Reports: Coughlin should be safe

A pair of pregame reports indicate that Giants coach Tom Coughlin’s seat isn’t overly hot.

CBS’ Charley Casserly reports Coughlin will definitely be back, while Jay Glazer of FOX says Coughlin will be back barring a “collapse” by Big Blue Sunday in Washington. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen echoed Glazer’s sentiments.

My question: What defines a “collapse” in Washington? I would say any loss to the Redskins would be troubling because it would be a second straight season the Giants totally fell apart down the stretch. The Giants are a superior team and still have a chance to make the playoffs.

They can end all the Coughlin speculation just by taking care of business Sunday.
