Here are a few New York Giants-related notes for you this morning.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese said he has spoken with Antrel Rolle and Kenny Phillips regarding their comments about coach Tom Coughlin last week.
"Well again, when things go bad and your season doesn’t end like you want it, anything you say can be misconstrued," Reese said in an interview with YES Network's Kimberly Jones in the upcoming "This Week In Football." "I talked to both of those players. They’re very remorseful about how it was spun. Both said they’re not that kind of people and I believe them, I think they’re both good people.
"That’s some of the things that he and I talked about," Reese said of Rolle. "I had a private conversation, but those are some of the things that we talked about… Less is more with the media. Hey, you do more on the field. You leave more on the field. You do your things on the field. You let your plays do the talking… and he said he was 200% in, and I believe him."
Reese also addressed the 25 interceptions thrown by quarterback Eli Manning, and put the onus squarely on Eli to be better.
"When you have a seven-year veteran in the National Football League, you've won a Super Bowl, you've been the MVP of a Super Bowl. . . . I think he's going to put the onus on him and that's where the onus is, it's on him," Reese told Kimberly Jones of the YES Network. "He needs to take care of the ball better and he knows that. I think Eli tried to do too much late in the season after we had some of the receivers go out and the offensive line was a mixed bag for a lot of the season. I think he was trying to do too much and I think that cost him some turnovers."
