    Coughlin: Wait and see on Prince

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/gia...-see-on-prince

    Excerpt: "Tom Coughlin said Prince Amukamara still had "some issues" last week with his high ankle sprain but is hoping the cornerback can help on Thursday against Carolina.

    Coughlin said Amukamara will have to show in practice on Tuesday that he is a little stronger and he might have to play through some pain. Amukamara has been sidelined by a high ankle sprain since Aug. 24.

    "We'll see," Coughlin said. "He did work last week, as everybody knows, and he did have one really good day ... (and) a couple of days where we had some issues, so we'll see how he is having been able to rest here.

    "Hopefully he'll be a little bit stronger," Coughlin added. "Maybe perhaps play with a minimal amount of pain. We'll just have to see." Read more...

    +1.....The Giant's CBs were playing sides last week and not WRs it seemed. Web on Jackson sometimes. Not the whole game.
    Carolina Smith is a great player. Saw him at the Giants stadium years back in warm ups. Had the jugs machine firing passes at him and he was catching them one handed. One left and one right.......

    Color me goofy, but I think he may be just a tad better than Tyron. Yes he is needs to show what he's got as a starter but I think he can get there.

    If Prince keeps being consistant with injuries every season we could very well be looking at T2 Part 2. Not saying we are anywhere near there yet but time will tell

Not saying he doesnt have skills and I hope he gets healthy and kicks some butt however I dont see him as some kind of savior for the secondary. he hasnt shown that yet at all...
    I second that statement

    I'm excited to see him back to playing. I'm assuming he'll be playing this week vs the panthers?

    I also hope hey let him and Webster play more press. Both are physical CB's and I think it's best to let them do what they do best.

    we'll see. Hope he gets healthy and pans out....

    Just using your post as a platform....nothing directed towards you.
    I know he showed stuff in the post season but I still dont look at it like "once Prince gets back they are set".....
    He still has a lot to prove. I hope he does and I hope kicks ***......

    We can't reasonably expect the also-rans to shoulder the load game after game. I don 't mean that in a disparaging way but. realistically, they have just not had enough time to develop in the system.
