    Interesting description of the Giants, and how it relates to the Bungles

    From Bill Simmons' column today (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...simmons/081107)

    Our friend Mike Lombardi did a tremendous job describing Tom Coughlin's coaching style over at the National Football Post last week: "He is using a very simple leadership strategy called the 'Law of Threes.' On each team there are three types of players. The first are the ones who will do anything that is asked, willing to help the program. The second group are the undecided players, the players who are not sure what to do. And the third are the malcontents. These are the players who want to buck the system all the time and try to break down the team. As a leader, there is a tendency to try to win over the players in group three by trying to make them happy. But all that does is move the players from group two into group three, and cause you to start to lose the players in group one. What Coughlin has done is focus on group one. He pays no attention to group three and what has resulted is that Plaxico is on an island and no one wants to join him. The team is bigger than Plaxico."

    Too bad no one in the Bengals organization gets this.

    Actually I think Marvin is doing that wrt Chad. He refuses to get into anything with him, he pretty much just ignores him.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
