“As I’ve said many times, I’ll stay with the same line: I hope he gets some normalcy in his life and has a chance to spend some time with his family and that he gets to know his kids once again,” Coughlin told the New York Post. “His wife has done a tremendous job of holding that family together for the last two years. She deserves some help.”
Regarding Burress’s description of his relationship with Coughlin as “ambivalent,” Coughlin said it doesn’t affect him.
“I don’t pay any attention to it,” Coughlin said last night at Yankee Stadium. “It is what it is. Maybe he’s sending me along a badge of honor. How do I know?”
Burress is about as likely to send Coughlin a badge of honor as Coughlin is to send Burress a contract offer.
