Tom Coughlin: Giants Coach Won't Spar With Jets' Rex Ryan

In terms of personality, New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is about as different from New York Jets coach Rex Ryan as is possible. Thus, it’s no surprise that Coughlin wanted no part of getting involved in any trash talk with Ryan when he spoke with reporters Wednesday.

“I just say, regardless of the talk, it will be decided at one o’clock Saturday afternoon. Regardless of what is said. Talk is cheap, play the game. That is the way I’ve always believed,” Coughlin said. “Just try to win the game, that is what is important to me. Us winning the game, and it will be one of those knock-down, drag-out games without a doubt. Our focus is completely on preparing our team.”

That is classic Coughlin, answering Ryan’s bombardment of shots about not playing “second fiddle” or being the “little brother” with a simple thought — let’s not talk, let’s just play.
