Giants' coach Tom Coughlin reiterates concern about pass rush

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Giants' coach Tom Coughlin is continuing to voice concern about the team's missing pass rush.

After the New York Giants failed to register a sack, or really generate any pressure on quarterback Brandon Weeden to speak of, in Sunday's 41-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns, Giants' coach Tom Coughlin expressed concern about his faltering pass rush.

Coughlin continued that theme during an appearance on WFAN with Boomer and Craig.

"We are concerned with it because it's such a big part of our game and it's the thing that has really been our calling card for so long. We're looking at it very closely each week and trying to figure out how we can help our guys create some situations where they're one-on-one and I think we're going to get to that," Coughlin said. "We have very talented young men and we've got to get to a position where we can turn them loose."

The Giants' secondary is struggling with injuries, and Coughlin said the pass rush needs to help the short-handed secondary. New York has only eight sacks in five games.

"We're battling through it just like everyone else is, but we will be fine," Coughlin said. "We get ourselves going with some pressure on the quarterback and I think our secondary play will improve as well."

Coughlin added that he did not know when injured wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (foot/knee) would be able to return.
