Tom Coughlin: 'I Think The Guys Will Rally'

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin did not have much good news for reporters Tuesday, and admitted that "The injury report is not something that I'm real happy about today." Losing three players to season-ending injuries in one day will make you feel that way.

The veteran coach, though, did his best to remain optimistic.

"I think the guys will rally. We're aware of that. We spoke about it last night in the locker room and actually prayed for the guys who were injured that I just mentioned. I think our guys will come rallying back," Coughlin said. "Certainly it will be a bigger plus if we do find that there are contributors, that some of the people we have here, some of the people we may discover, if they can help us and contribute I think it'll be a big plus. I think our guys will continue to believe in themselves and are certainly going to be disappointed in this news, as we all are. But we're going to have to push our way through this and maybe it will be an opportunity for someone else."

Really, I am not sure what else Coughlin could say. These are not the first injuries the Giants have suffered, nor will they be the last.

" I am disappointed in the injuries but this is football. ... I feel bad for the young men who have invested so much and looked forward to playing and then you have to get back to work in terms of doing the best you can with your current roster. Hopefully you gain some other pieces to the puzzle and move on," Coughlin said. "We had a pretty good night last night, we still have an awful lot to be learned. There are a lot of positives from last night and a lot of young guys played with great energy and did some great things, whether it be special teams or either side of the ball and you have to be encouraged by that."
