Several of the players who missed the Ravens game are ready to return to work. Linebacker Carlos Emmons (burner) will be on the field tomorrow and should resume contact work Monday. LaVar Arrington (knee) will practice once a day. Guard Chris Snee (knee) will return on a limited basis. And rookie wide receiver Sinorice Moss (quad) should return this week…
Coughlin switched the game-day location of two of his assistants, putting offensive coordinator John Hufnagel upstairs in the booth and quarterbacks coach Kevin Gilbride on the sideline.
"I thought we'd be better and more efficient that way," Coughlin said. "I always thought that the play-caller in the booth (Hufnagel) had an opportunity to see the entire field. I felt John would do a good job from up above, for the reason I just stated. I also felt it would give Kevin a better opportunity to communicate eyeball-to-eyeball with Eli (Manning), a guy he spends an untold number of hours with in the classroom and on the field.
"I thought that this would serve very well, that John would pass the play down to Kevin and Kevin would send it into the quarterback."…
Coughlin reiterated that he was displeased with the run defense in Baltimore. Although both starting units played only briefly, Jamal Lewis ripped through the Giants for 34 yards on six carries on the Ravens' first possession. Baltimore averaged 5.3 yards a carry.
"I still think (the interior defense was soft)," Coughlin said. "I don't think there's any question that the thing we'll be working on the most is shoring up the run defense. One of our objectives going into this game following last week's practices was to do a better job of gap control. We didn't do that necessarily last night and we gave up some numbers in the running game. … We didn't get anybody in real good position to stop them. We've got some work to do there and hopefully we can improve on that."
