1.2 Coach Tom Coughlin

Q:  Steve Smith?

A:  He has a little – he had some tendonitis.  I think he will be okay.

Re: availability of injured players next week

A:  We will see.  I'm encouraged but rather than say something that comes back to haunt me, we will just have to wait and see.  I'm hoping that some of the guys can get back.

Q:  did you have a good work week with the team

A:  We did.  I told them we wanted the full speed deal.  I didn't want them to do anything stupid but I wanted the speed.  We ran to the ball pretty well and finished our plays pretty well.  So it was good; it was good work.

Q:  Will you watch both of the NFC games?

A:  I will watch all of the games.  Everybody will.  It is this time of year. What else – this is it.  This is what it is all about.  I'm not going to miss these games.

Q:  Do you have any game plans on potential opponents.  Do you start game plans already?

A:  We have all of the information done, as I said the other day.  Everything is done; everything is in the computer.  We have taken a couple of teams and looked at some tape with the players.  But as far as sitting down and putting a plan together, no; we wouldn't do that until we see what happens after that second game on Sunday and we know who we play.

Q:  Do you have a plan in mind just in case Steve Spagnuolo gets hired somewhere else?

A:  I'm not even going to touch that one.  You are always thinking and you always have thoughts, but I'm not going to share anything with anybody about that.  Our focus is on winning and that is where Steve is, too.  And that is where it should be. 

Q:  As a head coach, you always have to be prepared for this kind of stuff?

A:  You are prepared.  But we will just see how it goes.

Q:  Things you wanted to work on this week.  Were you able to accomplish everything you wanted to your satisfaction?

A:  I don't know that you ever -- we will have to wait and see.  But we have worked on the areas that we really wanted to work on.  We were very thorough, very fundamental with a lot of things.  And hopefully, just by virtue of the emphasis, we will get that.  Do you know what I am saying?  Just by virtue of the circumstance, what is at stake and the emphasis, we get better.
