    GIANTS' COACH TOM COUGHLIN: "IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON"

    GIANTS' COACH TOM COUGHLIN: "IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON"



    "The New York Giants are
    the defending Super Bowl champions. They have the trophy. The have their
    championship rings now. They have had a few months to enjoy the spoils of
    victory. It is time, though, for the Giants to focus on the 2012 NFL season.
    Probably past time.



    Coach Tom Coughlin said as much Wednesday after his team's first on-field OTA at the Timex Performance
    Center, saying "it's time to move on. You can sense it and you can feel it."




    The Giants did just that on the field Wednesday morning.





    "These workouts are important for everybody to get back into a football
    mentality," Coughlin said. "I just told the players: We have two OTAs this week,
    three next, four the following, we have the White House (visit), and then we
    have a mandatory camp. Before you know it, we'll be in training camp. We need to
    have a good focus, a good concentration now, a good learning - everybody kind of
    build themselves back up to football speed."




    Coughlin has now won two Super Bowl titles as coach of the Giants, and don't
    think he won't use the cachet from those titles to drive home his message to the
    players -- both veterans and youngsters. Coughlin was asked Wednesday about Justin Tuck's
    comments about turning the Giants into a dynasty. Here is what he said:




    "I think we must raise the bar for our own performance, whether it be in the
    meetings, on the practice field, on the game field. That's what I'd like to
    see," Coughlin said. "I'd like to see everyone come in here - the young players,
    the new players - [and] understand the New York Giants championship culture,
    which is over the door to the locker room, and try to raise the level of how we
    do everything so that it is championship level."




    NOTES: The Giants experienced their first injury of the season today
    when corrnerback Brian Witherspoon went down with another ACL injury.
    Witherspoon lost all of the 2011 season to the same injury."

    Because we have a lot of guys returning, I think it's likely that will be the case.
