Excerpt: "Each Thursday, Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell speak with reporters.

Here are some highlights from this week's sessions:

GILBRIDE

• Gilbride was asked about the Giants' 24-17 loss to the Cowboys in Week 1, and if Dallas didn't see their best football back then:

"I hope so. I certainly hope so. I think we’re a little healthier. I think we can play better. I think we played better as the game went on, unfortunately we got started slowly.

"I think they’re very good. I think they have an outstanding pass rush; they went out and spent a lot of money to get two terrific corners. They’ve got a lot of athletes that match up well against us and in fact, their design was to effectively keep us in check. It’s going to be a challenge."

FEWELL

• Fewell was asked if his defense is more in sync than it was in the Week 1 loss to the Cowboys:

"Oh definitely. I think we are more in sync. We still have a couple of guys on the sideline that we’ll get back in the next one or two weeks. We are getting healthier. I expect us to play better as the time goes on."

• Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13256/jason-pierre-paul) has just 4.5 sacks through the first seven games of the season, after collecting 16.5 a year ago. But Fewell said the numbers don't tell the whole story.

"JPP plays at a very high level. When we watch him every week, he plays at a pretty high level every week. For him to have the numbers ... to produce those numbers consistently, that’s a little bit unrealistic. He has the capability to do that. When I look at the tape, I see him just dominate, and it might not show up in the statistics, but it shows up on the coaches tape where he just dominates a football game." Read more...
