Tom Coughlin has a chat with Antrel Rolle, Brandon Jacobs

It’s been an interesting week for the Giants, with safety Antrel Rolle saying the blowout loss in Indianapolis was partially attributable to the team’s travel itinerary, and Brandon Jacobs getting fined for throwing his helmet.

Now coach Tom Coughlin says he’s smoothed things over with both players.

“Antrel and I had a conversation yesterday afternoon,” Coughlin said, per Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger. “Although the conversation remains private, it was a good conversation and I think he understands better the circumstance.”

As for Jacobs, Coughlin said the two of them discussed “the professionalism in terms of meeting with the media and that type of thing. I’m hoping the lesson learned from last weekend as well as the incident with the helmet, I’m hoping Brandon can grasp the importance of keeping your poise, keeping your cool, that type of thing.”

And that’s where Coughlin would like to leave it with both players. I have a feeling that discontent within the Giants’ locker room will be portrayed as a big deal if the Giants lose to the Titans on Sunday, and a non-story if the Giants win.

    Giants could possibly go 4 – 12 this year.

    appears to me, new and old Giants are starting to tune ole Tom out (again).

    Probably gave them the “Gunny Highway” treatment…..
    You know, shot at them at close range with an AK-47, which is the preferred weapon of our enemy and gives off a distinctive sound when fired.
    As opposed to a comical dressing down. Coughlin has no sense of humor.

    As 4-12 is one of 17 possible records for an NFL team, the Giants could certainly “possibly go 4 – 12 this year.” Everyone is drawing WAY too many conclusions from a single road loss out of conference.

    Do you think Cowher will take this job or stay at home and coach the Panthers next year?

    Hey Average NFL Fan…I think it’s one of 16 possibilities.

    I could see Cowher considering the Giants job b/c the Giants run their shop like the Steelers do. Family owned, long on tradition….
    I think he’d ultimately chose Carolina though since it’s close to his home. He has some sort of connection to Princeton, but I can’t think of what it is.

    The Giants have lost one game to a 14-2 Super Bowl runner up.
    Let’s get back to reality. They are in a division with a lousy Redskins team, an Eagles team that has two quarterbacks (and therefore none), and a Cowboys team that is a basket case.
    They are the most stable team in the division, and it might only take 9 or 10 wins to win the East. They’ll be fine.

    The Giants still haven’t decided how best to use Kiwanuka or Sintim, a couple of good pass rushers who play (when they play) out of position. New York has talent, but is disorganized.

    Last I checked the Giants are still 1-1, tied for 2st place & have yet to play an NFC East game. I’d certainly be more worried about the preordained NFC SB representative Cowboys than the Giants. The Giants will be fine; better record than the Jets this year.

    I think my user name pretty much says it all. Giants will be 11-5 att worst. Monday night was ugly, but there isnt a team in the NFL that could have gone into Indy to face an 0-1 Peyton Manning and not be shredded. Peyton is just that good. This is a non-issue.

  12. Average NFL Fan says: Sep 22, 2010 5:04 PM

    Uh, no, Lobos. You can win 0-7 games (8 possibilities). You can lose 0-7 games (8 possibilities). Or you can go 8-8 (1 possibility). That’s 17.

    we could use Hamlin and get rid of Michael Johnson

    Hey Dumb Dumbs, whats the count if the giants tie a game?

  15. Woody Paige says: Sep 22, 2010 9:07 PM

    Seriously you think Peyton wasn’t prepping for that game like it was the SB? Giants didn’t show up and they got beat. It’s one gameeeeee.

    We are 1-and-1 and some people here are writing as if it is the end of Western Civilization as we know it. Have a little faith, people. There is a ton of football ahead of us. There are already several teams out there that are 0-2 that no one expected at this point: The Vikes and Cowboys for example. The Eagles and Skins are 1-and-1 with the G-Men.
    Have some faith, baby!
    GO GIANTS!!!

    Coughlin is actually regarded as one of the funniest coaches in the NFL.. There are multiple coaches (Fischer, Fox, Del Rio, Gruden) who are on tape stating that Tom Coughlin could be a stand up comedian if he wanted to be.
    But hey – thanks for proving youre a TURD to all of us who are actually football fans.
