Bears 20, Giants 17: Tom Coughlin Reaction

On Friday night, the Chicago Bears edged the New York Giants, 20-17, in a Week 3 preseason battle between two NFC contenders.

As with any game, preseason or otherwise, Tom Coughlin met with the media after the game for a post-game press conference. Coughlin spoke about a number of players, including rookie running back David Wilson and wide receiver Ramses Barden.

Q: Did David Wilson show you some things?
A: He did. That was a nice thing to see. Ramses Barden did some nice things. That was good to see. That was the plan to see those people and some others. There were some others put in positions that we'll have to look at the tape before I make any comments on them.

Coughlin tempered expectations on Wilson, though.

Q: David Wilson has never seemed overwhelmed by any of it...
A: He may not have seemed overwhelmed but all the young people have trouble with protection. Just the knowledge of how to get to the person you're responsible for and that took place. So he's battled that and he still is. He still is. He has some play-making ability, which was shown tonight and that's something that we certainly can use.

Both Wilson and Barden played well on Friday, with Barden hauling in three passes for 46 yards and a touchdown, while Wilson gained 49 yards on just five carries.
