“First thing Monday morning, I put the standings up there and we talked about it in our team meeting on Friday morning and reiterated where we were and where the division stood. Really what it boils down to is us. We can talk all we want. We have to play. We have to play a lot better than we’ve been playing. I’ve been asked by each one of you about the week, at least one question with regard to what do we really need. There’s a lot of things that need to improve. Guys are in a good frame of mind. They’ve had a good week. Let’s see this thing come together this weekend.” -Coach Tom Coughlin
