Postgame Coach Coughlin Interview


"Our players were very serious about their preparation. We did a good job these last couple of days of continuing to study. Obviously, we had a tough time stopping them. I am responsible for two of those scores (by the Saints). The rookie fumbled, giving the ball up. And going for it on fourth down because we basically had to. I knew they (the Saints) would try to score. They did.

(on the Saints) "They're good. They're talented. They do a good job of moving the ball around. The quarterback does a good job of getting the ball out of his hands. We gave up far too many points, obviously.

(on turnovers) "We had two turnovers. We took seven points down from us and gave them seven points with the turnover. I tried to challenge on a whim that he was down before the ball came out. They ruled that they saw the ball moving. We got a little production out of the run. We got a lot of production out of the pass.

(on Saints offense) "We weren't able to cover them. They put themselves in position with simple little throws. They beat us in the flat a couple of times. And (they beat us) down the sideline. They have good personnel and they distribute it."

(on the effort of the team) "They tried. They tried. We didn't get to the passer (Drew Brees). When we don't get to the passer, we have trouble. That is, quite frankly, what I indicated to you in the Rams game. We knocked the quarterback down 15 times in that game. Pretty much you have to do that (to win)"Join other diehard Giants Fans!
