Good morning, New York Giants fans! Before we check today's Giants headlines, a reminder that a 9/11 remembrance thread is posted for you to share your thoughts, feelings and memories of that tragic terrorist act that happened 13 years ago today.
Let's check today's Giants headlines.
Coughlin: 'Never been very good' at patience
Giants coach Tom Coughlin has called his team's offense a "work in progress" and knows patience is required. He also knows patience is not his strong suit.
"I have never been very good at it. I've tried it. Some people are obviously better than others, and I am in the other category. We just have to keep swinging. That's all I am trying to do, is to continue to evaluate, be honest with everybody, but encourage. That's the best we can do right now," Coughlin said on Wednesday.
Eli: 'No doubts' about ability
Quarterback Eli Manning was Wednesday about the idea some have expressed that his best football is behind him.
"No doubts. I feel confident we can play at a high level and this offense can score points and we can make plays and I can be a good leader and a good player," Manning said. "I'm going to keep working. I'm going to be 100 percent committed to go out there and try to put this team in a situation to win."
