New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin stated in an interview with Boomer and Carton of WFAN in New York that the team is concerned about the lack of pressure its pass rush has been able to generate this season.
Despite having players such as Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora, the Giants are ranked No. 24 overall in sacks this season with eight. While Coughlin is concerned, he is confident that the team can find a way to improve it, via SportsRadioInterviews.com:
"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. We have very talented young men and we've got to get to a position where we can turn them loose."
The Giants will face the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last year's NFC Championship Game in Week 6. The game is scheduled to start at 4:25 p.m., ET and will be broadcast on Fox.
