Head Coach Tom Coughlin Honored: Head Coach Tom Coughlin was named the ESPN (ESPYS) “Coach/Manager of the Year.” The honor is determined by internet fan voting.
“I think coach Coughlin does a great job of getting us prepared each season,” said QB Eli Manning. “And it’s tough – you go through injuries, ups and downs, but he keeps us focused. He keeps our confidence up no matter what happens, and we have a great chemistry of guys. We come in, we work extremely hard, we get prepared, and they treat this game and their profession very seriously. And those are the guys you want to have as teammates because you know week in and week out they’re going to be reliable and step up in game situations.”
“I think we just had extreme focus,” said WR Victor Cruz. “I think we understood what we had to do. We understood that once we made the playoffs, we didn’t want to be just one and done. We wanted to continue our path and continue the great run we had towards the end of the regular season and continue it right into the postseason. I think that mindset helped us out a lot.”
