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.
