Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Tuesday morning headlines.
'Talk Is Cheap, Play The Game'
The "talk is cheap, play the game" mantra has always been a calling card of Giants coach Tom Coughlin. There have been times over the years, including last week, when his players have not heeded that advice. Veteran Mathias Kiwanuka said Monday that won't happen again.
"I think this was a humbling experience for all of us. Coach Coughlin is always preaching talk is cheap. Let your pads do all the talking. We have had a lot of meetings today and it has been reiterated to us that [the talking] didn't get us a win. I can't speak for any other individuals here, but I feel like as group, we understand the message that we received today and we will move on in a better way," said veteran defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka.
"First off, that is not the type of organization that this is. From the very beginning, this has been a first-class organization. [Coach] Coughlin has always tried to run a tight ship and especially when it comes to respecting your opponent and never doing anything to cast a negative light upon this organization. We get it. We understood and we will move on from it."
