Tom Coughlin: "Buckle your seat belts"

4

"I’m excited, I’m anxious. This is my first game on the sideline as the head coach of the New York Giants, that’s how I look at it. I don’t look at it any other way. The cumulative, yeah, there’s experience there and there’s reason to feel confident, because I’ve been there before. However, it’s the start of a new season. It’s all new. Look at the team. It’s all new. So I look at it that way. I’m excited, I’m looking forward to it. Hey, it is what it is. The season begins whether you’re ready or not, that’s what I always say. I told the players that. ‘Fellas, buckle your seat belts. Because whether you’re ready or whether you’re not ready, it’s starting Sunday night. You better be ready.’"
