Coughlin: Eagles Are 'Very, Very Formidable'

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin doesn't want to hear anything about the struggles of the 3-6 Philadelphia Eagles. During his press conference today Coughlin called the Eagles "very, very formidable."

"they are a very good football team and better than the first time we played them. I have to say since we have played them, they have played a bunch of good games in a row. Five of their six losses are seven points or less," Coughlin said. "They have great pride and are playing to win just like everybody else. They are talented. They would like nothing more than to beat us and we would like nothing more than to beat them."

Coughlin said the Giants would prepare the same way for Vince Young as they would for Michael Vick, who may not play due to his broken ribs.

Michael Boley and Ahmad Bradshaw were the only Giants who did not practice today, and Coughlin continues to say that Boley (hamstring) is day-to-day.
