Tom Coughlin said before Wednesday’s practice that he expected Hakeem Nicks to be on the practice field. That didn’t happen. Nicks wasn’t a participant at practice, although Mike Garofalo of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that he did some running and cutting on the sidelines during the session. The wide receiver hopes to take part in…

Tom Coughlin is ready to move on. He was asked a question about the Patriots game today and recoiled. But for the rest of us, that game is still pretty relevant.
Tom Coughlin did not say anything about the recent turmoil at Penn State, but he did reflect a bit on the career of Joe Paterno at his press conference today.

Two sunrises since the Giants knocked off the Patriots and the town is still abuzz with football fever. Head coach Tom Coughlin was extremely garrulous in his Monday conference call, covering just about every aspect about Sunday’s game he could think of. But he was not about to bask in the victory. It was business as usual again for the Giants.
On the injury front, it appears no...
WHAT has been used as an indictment that the Giants aren???t good enough just might be the evidence needed to prove the Giants this time around will have the staying power to keep firm hold of their lead in the NFC East.
Winning ugly, just squeaking by, the need for late rallies simply to escape the upset clutches of inferior opponents: These were reasons to view the Giants as owning...

And his message to his team was a pointed one. “We ain’t going on a six-hour ride not to come back with a win,” he said.
The giddiness from Sunday evening is starting to wear off, which means it is time for the Giants to start looking forward.
They should like what they see. They are 6-2 through the first eight games, in first place by two games over the Cowboys and they saw the Eagles fall another game behind in the standings with a miserable performance at home against the Bears on Monday night....

Up next for the streaking Giants? A stretch of games that reads like an NFC playoff run, with tilts against the 49ers, Eagles, Saints and Packers. Yes, the Giants are 6-2 for the fifth time under Tom Coughlin, but we've been here before. Many of those teams crumbled in the second half of the season (Coughlin's 24-32 down the stretch since 2004), but Osi Umenyiora says this...
