Giants Tom Coughlin Talks RGIII
New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin meet with the media Thursday and discussed the up coming match-up against the Washington Redskins. Coughlin went in depth about what he expects in his second meeting of the season with the Washington Redskins and quarterback Robert Griffin III.
He’s getting better, no question. He’s got the numbers to prove it. He’s done extremely well with the passing game, the play-action passes. What you notice is the effectiveness with the completion percentage and the yardage that’s attained. It may not be as many throws, but it’s more productive.
Coughlin also discussed the Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and the Skins’ offensive game plan.
You always have to anticipate. They’ve always been a gadget team; they’ll have something that they’ve utilized. They’ve done so in the past. You look at the Pittsburgh game, then the very next week there’s RGIII running down the sideline with a ball thrown to him out of the backfield. Reverses off of different looks. Mike’s always done that. A couple years ago, they had the tight end formations with a big drag route down the sideline with the tight end that was very, very effective. They will always do that. They have a diversified offense, diversified system now that incorporates various forms of options. It’s a very interesting preparation.
