Coughlin: 'I Just Don't Think It Would Be Smart'

Fans of both teams — and media members — might want to, but New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin is placing no special emphasis on the fact that Monday’s preseason opener is against the New York Jets.

“If we did something along those lines I just don’t think it would be smart,” Coughlin said Wednesday during Giants Training Camp at the University at Albany. "We’ve still got 16 games to go, four pre-season games.

“You want to win, but you’re not going to sacrifice the ability to evaluate personnel for that, because that’s what preseason is.”

So, despite the fact that it’s the Jets — and the first game at New Meadowlands Stadium — don’t expect to see any starters after the first series or two. And expect to see a lot of guys you have never heard of in the second half.
