The Giants struggled to run the ball for the second week in a row, totaling only 23 yards on 19 attempts. Once again, turnovers proved to be the Giants' biggest concern, with Eli Manning throwing 4 interceptions. The Giants have given the ball away 10 times, an astounding number after only two weeks of NFL action.
New York Giants (0-2) at Carolina Panthers (0-2)
Ten-year veteran cornerback Drayton Florence re-signed with the Carolina Panthers, who have been thinned by injuries in the secondary.
New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin has been forced to answer questions about his decision to limit running back David Wilson. He has been quizzed about quarterback Eli Manning’s seven interceptions in two games. Coughlin has also tried to explain how his team will improve after their 0-2 start. None of those setbacks are greater than Coughlin’s biggest loss this year. John Coughlin, Tom’s 63-year old brother, died Monday night at Hackensack University Medical Center, according to the New York Daily News. The accident reportedly occurred after the Denver Broncos defeated the New York Giants this past Sunday at Met Life Stadium. John was on the sidelines of that game. Here is the New York Daily News’ description of the accident: Friend Larry Remmen, who joined Coughlin at the game, said his long-time pal apparently took a spill while exiting a cab and hit his head outside his Hackensack home. “As a result of the fall, he had a brain hemorrhage,” said Remmen, one of the leading trainers in Meadowlands history. “It was just a freak thing that happened.” John Coughlin was a horse trainer who guided 154 winners and compiled $1.4 million in earnings before retiring in 2011. Tom Coughlin, 67, expressed his sentiments through the team’s website on Wednesday: “Our family is thankful for the expressions of sympathy and prayers for our brother John’s passing,” Tom Coughlin said. “We all appreciate them. John was a friend to all. He loved life, and he will be greatly missed. He left us way too soon.” Tom Coughlin intends to coach his team against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, according to the New York Daily News. The wake will be held on Monday. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday at St. Mary’s Church in Waterloo at 10 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made in John’s memory to the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Foundation , P.O. Box 50798, Jacksonville Beach, Florida 32240.
