Good morning, New York Giants' fans! Here are some stories of interest for you on this Saturday morning.
Tom Coughlin is tired of answering questions about the Giants' pass rush:
"This question has been asked 9,000 times and I’ve answered it 9,000 times and it will probably take an offseason to maybe analyze it even further," Coughlin said. "I think the first thing you do on defense is stop the run. If you stop the run, I think you rush the passer pretty well."
"I've only missed five in my career and that was circumstances I couldn't really control. This time of year, everyone plays through pain," Snee said. "I'm not saying I'm dealing with any more than what other guys are dealing with. I'm upright and I was moving around, so I'll be good to go."
Now for a look around the Inter-Google for some linkage.

Jason Pierre-Paul, my preseason pick to be the NFL Defensive Player of the Year, leads the Giants with 6 1/2 sacks, which ties him for 33rd in the league. As a team, the Giants are 12th in sacks per pass play, which isn't bad, but they are 26th in third-down efficiency, which is a reflection of their lack of pass rush. The Giants have 32 sacks as a team.
