Tom Coughlin, 08.18.12

A: I thought that Lawrence Tynes performed very, very well tonight. I thought that both defenses, the Jets defense and the Giants defense, played very well. Certainly I was pleased to win the game, that’s the idea. We got a chance to play a lot of people again. I was not pleased with the interception. I was not pleased with the blocked punt. We’re going to have to go back and work on that. We certainly have a lot of work to do and a long way to go. Some people had a chance to step up tonight and played very well, particularly on the defensive side of the ball with some individual plays that stood out, offensively as well. For the second preseason game I was glad to see the improvement, particularly we saw improvement on the defensive side of the ball, but we’ve got a lot of work to do.

Q: What’s the update on Ahmad Bradshaw?

A: There’s no break and he’s got a swollen hand.

Q: Obviously not what you’d want from a running back, how concerned are you?

A: Hopefully they get the swelling down and the soreness out and whatever they do there is not that big an obstruction. We’ll see where he is.

Q: Is it only the right hand?

A: As far as I know, it’s one hand. That’s what they’re talking about in there.

Q: How’d he do it?

A: I have no idea. He doesn’t.

Q: He’ll go for more tests tomorrow?

A: I would imagine.

Q: Did you see anything out of the other running backs?

A: I think Da’Rel Scott ran up in there pretty hard late in the game and David Wilson did, too. David had a couple runs that were pretty good, but nothing with consistency.

Q: Can you talk about Hosley’s interception?

A: It was a very nice play. He stepped in front of the receiver in the flat, and he certainly does have the speed once he caught the ball to run down the sideline and score. We were all cheering for him. We put our defense in a very bad spot there a couple times before the half and they came through for us without giving up any points.

Q: Herzlich? Tracy?

A: Herzlich has a hip pointer and we don’t know how bad it is. Tracy had a little hamstring strain. Again, we don’t know how bad it is.

Q: What’d you think of Randle’s catch up the middle there?

A: It was a nice play, a very nice play. I would’ve liked to seen him block a little better when he had an opportunity.

Q: What about Martinek’s catch? He made a nice play--?

A: He did. It was nice to see someone get into the end zone.

Q: What did you think about that hit on Cruz?

A: I really didn’t get a chance to see it over and over. I don’t know if it was helmet-to-helmet or shoulder-to-shoulder. I couldn’t tell.

Q: Do you expect a fine?

A: I have no idea. That’s not any of my business. I don’t even know what it looked like. I’d have to take a look before I could comment.
