Strahan has Tom Coughlin's back

Former New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan is about to go into the club's new Ring of Honor on Sunday night. He talked about this huge honor, but he also discussed what's going on with this current Giants team. ESPNDallas.com's Ohm Youngmisuk has all the details.

"Now all of a sudden he can't coach?" Strahan asked. "I don't think that is the case. He has to just get these guys on the same page. As a coach you can only do so much, and you got to have some guys who are your leaders who can kind of control the situation and police each other."

Strahan remembers all the attention Coughlin received when he fined for players for not being at least five minutes early to meetings. He may have doubted him at one point, but he eventually came around. And that's why Strahan's not buying any of this stuff about Coughlin being on the hot seat.

"I read and see all this stuff ... losing control of the team," Strahan said. "There has been an evolution of Tom Coughlin, an evolution of being to the point where I felt early on it was almost unbearable to the point of where you realize he is right now."
