The Coughlin Corner –

"If you were teaching them a new game and they were young – for example the percentages right there on that sheet of paper about fumble recoveries. We’re at the low point of the league. You ask yourself why. Well, it’s just a matter of aggressiveness and being able to believe you can overcome whatever comes your way. That happens naturally with confidence."

Jason Pierre-Paul Thinking About Free Agency Already? –

"“To be honest with you, I’m not worried about my contract situation,” Pierre-Paul said after practice Friday. “It’s going to take care of itself. If I’m here, I’m here. If I’m not, I’m not. I don’t think about it. I go home and sleep good at night.” Pierre-Paul was a first-round pick in 2010 and exploded onto the NFL scene as an elite pass-rusher with 16.5 sacks in 2011 on the way to the Giants’ most recent Super Bowl title. But his 2012 and 2013 seasons were limited by back and shoulder injuries, so he’s come back this year in an effort to prove he deserves to be paid among the top pass-rushers in the game."

Do Something About It! –

"It’s gut check time. “Do something about it,” coach Tom Coughlin said in his weekly exclusive interview with’s Michael Eisen. “Be upset about it and go do something about it. The other way to look at it is this – criticism, criticism, criticism. If you don’t do something about it, you’re obviously acknowledging it. You’re trumping it, you’re saying, ‘OK.’ You have to prove it wrong. That’s the great challenge. The challenge is always within yourself. Professional athletics, once you get into a segment of the season, the challenge is always internal to get better, to improve.”"

Rashad Jennings Listed As Probable –

"Running back Rashad Jennings has practiced all week with the Giants and is officially listed as probable for Sunday’s home game against the San Francisco 49ers. After missing the last four games due to a knee sprain, Jennings looks good to return to the starting lineup for the Giants this week."

Giants Preparing To Stop Potent 49ers’ Rushing Attack –

"“That’s what the National Football League is,” Coughlin said today. “I know where we are and I’ve got it and we’ll get it. The ball is in the air a tremendous amount of the time. If you don’t stop the run, the signal that you’re sending about the physical nature of your play is not good enough. That’s where it starts with me. I know I’m a dinosaur.”"

Prediction: Giants Defeat 49ers –

"The Giants are 0-6 this year against teams that currently have winning records and 3-0 against teams that don’t. The San Francisco 49ers are 5-4. So this seems like a simple pick, and when you add in the fact that the 49ers run the ball well and should be able to take advantage of the Giants’ 32nd-ranked run defense, it seems even simpler."

Food Drive At MetLife Stadium On 11/16/14 –

"All food collected during the drive will be donated to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (a member of Feeding America) for distribution to local partner charities in the area. This year more than ever we need your support. Jobs are scarce, wages are low and poverty in New Jersey is at a 52-year high.  It is getting harder all the time for our neighbors in need to put food on the table."

Odell Beckham Jr. The Best Rookie Wide Receiver In 2014? –

"Which receiver has been the best, and where does this class rank overall? Bleacher Report’s Chris Simms and CBS’ Phil Simms break down these rookies to find out who’s at the head of the class."

5 Giants To Watch For Against 49ers –

"If Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr. finishes Sunday’s game against the 49ers with 100 receiving yards, he will become the first rookie in the franchise’s history to record three consecutive 100-yard performances, according to Michael Eisen of"
