Kiss Tom Coughlin's ass if you don't respect a 10-6 season

Sure, Tom Coughlin wishes he was preparing with his team for a playoff game this week.

But after melting down in the final weeks of the season, the Giants lost control of their destiny and not even a season-ending victory last Sunday over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field was enough to propel them into the postseason with a 10-6 record.

And 10-6 is nothing to sneeze at, according to Coughling. In fact, it’s something to be damn proud of.

That is the message that was captured by cameras for Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.”

According to the New York Daily News, Coughling said anyone not impressed with a 10-6 season “can line up and kiss my ass.”

“Outsanding. Outstanding finish to the ball game,” Coughlin said, per the report. “We did our part, OK? That’s all I can ask you to do. Hey, from the bottom of my heart and everybody’s, we have a 10-6 season. A 10-win season in the NFL, OK? They can kiss my ass, OK? They can line up and kiss my ass. It’s not an easy thing to do.”

Then, a player or someone else in the locker room shouted, “Can we quote you on that, coach?”

“You can quote me on a lot more than that,” Coughlin said. “The priest is here or I’d say a few more things.”

So, where does the line start?
