Giants coaches and players meet the media before the team's Week 9 matchup with the Steelers

Head Coach Tom Coughlin

Q: General (Raymond) Odierno (Chief of Staff, United States Army) was here today?
A: The General is here, yeah, it was great to have him. Always look forward to seeing him. He’s in town for all the festivities (surrounding the NFL’s Salute to Service). He’s actually working now; he’s got 10,000 soldiers in New York City. He was over there, he was up at West Point and he’ll be at our game on Sunday.


CB Prince Amukamara

Q: After playing a stellar wide receiver corps from Dallas, would you put Pittsburgh right up there with them?
A: For sure, talent-wise, but different kind of receivers. Last week the guys were bigger receivers. This week, speed.

Q: Antrel Rolle said these receivers were probably the fastest you’ve seen all year:
A: Yeah, for sure. On film, yeah. I’m sure they’re going to be in person, too.


LB Mark Herzlich

Q: Thoughts on Hurricane Sandy:
A: These are things that you get dealt that you can’t expect and you don’t know what to do with it, but everybody’s been helping out everybody. That’s something that I think I took from it. We’re playing football and it’s much different than the natural disaster and coming back from that. We didn’t perform out best last week and we know that we got kind of lucky with the win in certain cases, so I think that we’re coming back with the mentality that we need to rebuild, start from scratch, the fundamentals need to be perfect and persevere through the tough times that come on the field.
