Prank in the tank: Fun or foul? - Giants Blog - ESPN New York
Tom Coughlin obviously is not thrilled that a video of Jason Pierre-Paul dunking Prince Amukamara into an ice tub has gone viral.
Hynoski carry just the beginning? - Newsday
One of the few running plays Coughlin was pleased with went only 2 yards, but it could portend big things for the future.
Fullback Henry Hynoski took his first NFL handoff for that short gain on fourth-and-1, a somewhat minor play worth noting. The Giants have not handed the ball off to a true fullback in the regular season since Dec. 21, 2008, when Madison Hedgecock ran for no gain.
"It's something we're slowly working into," Hynoski said of his role in the offense. "I knew if I didn't get a first down, I probably would never get a carry again. I just made sure I did, put my head down and moved forward and got it done."
Coughlin seemed pleased to have Hynoski as an option.
"The short yardage pickup by Henry, although not a lot of distance, was a plus for us," Coughlin said. "We've not always, in the last couple of years, been very good in that area . . . It gave us one more form of a weapon to be utilized in that circumstance."
