"Keep fighting, keep fighting, keep fighting, that is all it takes, one game at a time, bounce back. Again, it is about all of those eyes that look at me on Wednesday morning, I am thinking about them, quite frankly, trying to bring them through the disappointment toward the next opponent."
Coughlin, who emphasizes divisional games to his players, was asked if their was still some juice to Sunday's game despite the teams having opposite records...
"I think divisional games are, and certainly, we are blessed, if you will, to be in a division that’s highly competitive and everybody calls everybody a rival and it certainly makes for some very, very interesting games and competition. Over the years, we’ve seen it and been a part of it."
The Giants may have lost five straight games, falling out of contention in the process, but Cowboys' head coach Jason Garrett knows his team has to be prepared for just about anything on Sunday night. Even though Dallas has beaten the Giants in the last three meetings, records get set aside when these two teams meet.
"To me, you see a good football team," Garret said of the Giants on his conference call Wednesday. "We study these guys a lot; they are in our division so we do spend some time in the offseason on them. Certainly, when you play them twice a year, you spend a lot of time watching tape, and they have a lot of good players and are a well –coached team. You said it, they have played some good opponents and they played them well, and they are right in the game. At the end of the game last week, that is a hard thing to, particularly when you are on the minus side of the turnover ratio.
"They are doing some good things, both in the run game, and pass game, certainly they challenge on defense, and the kicking game as well. We recognize the challenges they present and all throughout their team. We are preparing our best to be ready for them."
