TRENTON � The New Jersey State Senate will honor this year�s Super Bowl Champion New York Giants by presenting a ceremonial resolution to Head Coach Tom Coughlin during Thursday�s scheduled Senate session at 2:00 pm. After accepting the resolution, sponsored by Senate President Richard J. Codey and Senator Paul A. Sarlo, Coughlin will address the Senate on the floor of the Chambers at the Statehouse in Trenton.
In his fourth full season as head coach, Coughlin led the Giants to the Super Bowl XLII title, wowing New Jersey fans with a nail-biting, come-from-behind victory in February.

�We couldn�t be more proud of the Giants and Coach Coughlin. Their amazing comeback in the Super Bowl is the stuff legends are made of. This is just a small little token of our appreciation for making the 2007 football season one of the best seasons ever,� said Sen. Sarlo who represents the Giants� home turf in the Meadowlands.
