Or, to put it more accurately, the perception of Tom Coughlin has come a long way in the past month.
It's enough to make you dizzy, but Coughlin never has paid much attention to how people see him.
"I just keep the blinders on and go straight ahead," he said Thursday, according to Newsday. "I don't have anything to do with what is being said on the outside. The priorities and the way that I think about it, I don't let it affect me in any way. I do believe in the John Wooden statement: We like praise, we don't like criticism, but if we let either one of those things affect your preparation, then you've got a problem."
It's a great mindset to have, especially in a market where you're only as good as your last month.
