Ahmad Bradshaw outburst addressed by Tom Coughlin

Tom Coughlin says Ahmad Bradshaw's toughness is unquestioned, but that the running back does need to do a better job controlling his emotions.

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin was asked several questions Monday about running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who was temperamental with teammates and argumentative with coaches -- including Coughlin -- on Sunday. To the point where Coughlin finally bristled and asked "is that the only questions we're going to have today is about Ahmad saying 'good morning coach,' to me?"

"There's never been any question about Ahmad Bradshaw's toughness, his intensity level. He plays the game hard, you'd like to have everybody play as hard as he plays. He gives it everything he's got," Coughlin said. "Sometimes you do have to control yourself and control your emotions and he's working on it."

Bradshaw gave teammate Victor Cruz a wicked slap in the helmet at one point. He was also seen having words with both Coughlin and running backs coach Jerald Ingram.




Coughlin said Chris Canty "did well" in his first action of the season. Coughlin also said that Hakeem Nicks "gets a little bit better each week." He also said that the team will make a decision this week as to whether or not tight end Travis Beckum, on the PUP list, will try to practice.
