John Mara Declines to Discuss the Future of Tom Coughlin: Immediately after the Giants’ 23-20 loss to the Eagles on Sunday, Giants’ President and CEO John Mara was approached by the media regarding Head Coach Tom Coughlin’s job status. Mara merely replied, “Not right now. I’ll have something to say later in the week. Do you think you can wait that long?”

New York Giants to Interview Scott Pioli for General Manager Position?: The Star-Ledger is reporting that the Giants are expected to interview Patriots’ Vice President of Player Personnel Scott Pioli as early as this week for the team’s soon-to-be vacant general manager position. General Manager Ernie Accorsi’s retirement officially begins on January 15. The interview can still occur despite the fact that the Patriots are in the playoffs because NFL rules permit teams to speak to other team officials that won their wild-card games this week only. Pioli would be allowed to leave the Patriots for the Giants because it would be considered a promotion.

Pioli is also the son-in-law of Bill Parcells.

The Ledger speculates that Pioli would be the leading candidate from outside the organization for the Giants’ general manager position, while Giants’ Director of Player Personnel Jerry Reese is the leading candidate within the organization.

Charlie Weis Interested in the New York Giants?: The Star-Ledger is also reporting that a source has told the paper that Notre Dame Head Coach Charlie Weis would be interested in becoming the head coach of the Giants. Weis, a life-long Giants fan, interviewed for the Giants’ head coaching vacancy back in 2004.

Notes: The Giants’ last road post-season win was the 1990 NFC Championship Game in San Francisco.

The Giants have lost their last four post-season games.

Head Coach Tom Coughlin has a 4-6 post-season record and is 0-2 with the Giants.

Philadelphia rushed for 185 yards, the fourth-highest total ever allowed by the Giants in a post-season game. Carolina rushed for 223 yards last year, the second-highest total.
