Tom Coughlin will be heading to Carolina with with a heavy heart this weekend as he continues to mourn the loss of his younger brother, John, who died suddenly on Monday at Hackensack Medical Center. John Coughlin, 63, was born in Waterloo, N.Y. but has lived in New Jersey for the past 20 years. He was a horse trainer, owning and operating Coughlin’s Stables at the Meadowlands Racetrack, located just a few yards from the Quest Diagnostic Performance Center outside MetLife Stadium. “Our family is thankful for the expressions of sympathy and prayers for our brother John’s passing,” Coughlin said in a statement. “We appreciate them. John was a friend to all. He loved life and will be greatly missed. He left us way too soon.” Coughlin spent much of Monday with his brother at the Hackensack Medical Center. He worked with the team through morning meetings, then left shortly thereafter, canceling his normal Monday press conference to return to Hackensack Medical. John Coughlin passed away later that night. The coach still returned to the team on Wednesday, though, and he plans to stay with the team this week and coach on Sunday against the Panthers. He was his usual fiery self during his Wednesday press conference as well, but he is also coaching with a grieving heart. You can bet they'll be a win one for coach speech before Sunday's game.

The New York Giants have always built there defense around the pass rush. They rely on the ability to rush the quarterback to help their defense stop the pass. So far through two games the pass rush has not been a factor for the Giants. This is their biggest problem on the defensive side of the ball. Who can fix this problem for the Giants? The answer is Jason Pierre-Paul.

Many NFL players wouldn’t want to be compared to Tim Tebow, but in Prince Amukamara‘s case, the comparison makes some sense.

Conspicuously absent over the first two games of the season is New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. His stat line may read six tackles in two games, but he's been anything but impactful for Big Blue. If anything, it looks like he still has a lot of rust to shake off after missing the offseason due to back surgery.
But that didn't stop JPP from speaking up after...
