Posted Oct 25, 2012

Coach Tom Coughlin meets the media after practice

Q:  Bradshaw?
A:  Didn’t work, maybe tomorrow.

Q:  No setbacks?
A:  I don’t think there’s any setback.

Q:  Tomorrow for Bradshaw?
A:  Hopefully, yeah.  Hopefully he works tomorrow.  That would be his day.

Q:  Kenny Phillips?
A:  He worked today.  He did a little something and he’s going to work back into it very gradually.  We’ll see how he does each day.

Q:  How did he look?
A:  He did ok.  He did ok.

Q:  David Baas?
A:  Back to work.

Q:  Full-time?
A:  Might as well have.  I think he’s going to be listed limited, but he worked.

Q:  Yesterday you mentioned that you hoped Bradshaw would practice today:
A:  I did, but it didn’t work out that way.  Hopefully tomorrow will be the day.

Q:  Same issue?
A:  Same deal, same thing.

Q:  If Baas can’t play this weekend, is it really an issue with the way your offensive line has had to shuffle around this season?
A:  I think he’ll go.

Q:  Are you encouraged that your team is getting healthier moving towards the bye week?
A:  It’s always nice to see the list diminish, that’s for sure.

Q:  What’s the importance of this week given your 0-2 start in the division?
A:  Very important.  An opportunity, of course, to win in the division, to go back to 2-2 in the division.  To give ourselves an opportunity last week against Washington and this week against Dallas to get back in good standing.

Q:  In the division, one team’s defeat is an even greater win for their opponent:

A:  Sure, divisional games, that’s why we call them, “twice as important.”

Q:  Thoughts on your team’s success at Cowboys Stadium:
A:  Someone asked me that yesterday, and they put it in such a way, are you ever going to lose, and I said, I hope not.

Q:  What are your comments on DeAngelo Hall and his remarks?
A:  I’m not going to comment on that.  I didn’t even hear about it.

Q:  Players on other teams keep saying that they “gave” you the games, why is this?
A:  All I know is they recorded it as a win.

Q:  Has Rocky Bernard been progressing?

A:  He is.  He does individual.

Q:  Is Kenny Phillips a possibility for Sunday?
A:  We’ll see.  We’ll have to see.

Q:  How big is it for Hakeem Nicks to practice a full week for two straight weeks now?
A:  Well, he went all three last week and he’s all three this week, so that’s a very encouraging sign.  To see him smile and get out there and go to work and have some burst and practice three days in a row is a good thing.
