New York Giants Training Camp: Defending Champs Are Underway

Despite morning downpours the New York Giants were able to get outside for their first day of practice Friday at UAlbany.

"I was worried this morning. But the weather did help, did cooperate with us this afternoon," said Giants coach Tom Coughlin. "We have 15 (practices) up here, and we need all 15. That's what I mean by the rain situation, and you're trying to figure out whether you're going to be able to get it in. Fortunately, we did. So, that's a huge plus."

Coughlin likes the attitude the defending Super Bowl champions have displayed thus far.

"I had the sense when we first arrived, and in our meetings, that they were focused. They are very interested in what's going on. They still feel good about themselves, and they understand about taking this next stride," Coughlin said. "There's no going backwards. They do have, we do have a lot to prove, and we do have a lot to improve upon, and that's the attitude that I think they've taken."

Notes

Cornerback Terrell Thomas left practice early when his back tightened up. Coughlin said there was no issue with Thomas' surgically-repaired knee.
