Former NY Giants legendary head coach Tom Coughlin won't be heading to the Hall of Fame and it's a sentence we wish we didn't have to write. This has a lot of people upset, as Coughlin was a semifinalist to make his way to Canton. However, it was recently announced that he won't be moving forward in the process.

Coughlin is of course best known for leading the Giants over the Patriots twice in the Super Bowl. His two rings with the G-Men were nothing short of spectacular, and only a small sample size of the incredible impact he's had on the game. For him to be snubbed for the Hall of Fame is a joke.

Tom Coughlin passed over for the Hall of Fame has NY Giants fans upset

Coughlin was part of three Super Bowl titles while with the Giants. His first came while working as a wide receiver coach for the NFC East side in 1990 - a classic win over the Bills. Then came his two titles over Tom Brady and Co.

After his days as an NY assistant, Coughlin went to Boston College and then would later become head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars. He would put them on the map as an NFL franchise. In that time he would lead the Jaguars to two appearances in the AFC Championship Game. He also was named NFL Coach of the Year with the team in 1996.

Eventually he would come back to New York as the Giants head coach. In the 2007 season when many were ready to write both him and Eli Manning off, the Giants would go on a magical run to make the playoffs and eventually win the Super Bowl. They notably defeated the Cowboys on the road, plus Brett Favre and the Packers on the road in one of the coldest games ever played. That season ended by spoiling the Pats' perfect season hopes.

In the 2011 season, the Giants would go on a similar run making the playoffs at 9-7. The blew out the Falcons at home followed by road playoff wins against the 15-1 Packers and the 49ers. In the Super Bowl, the Giants would out battle the Patriots once again.

Coughlin is an NFL Coach of the Year, a three-time Super Bowl champion - two of those as a head coach - and is 13th all time in wins. The man belongs in Canton and it needs to happen in the near future. Come on.
