Coughlin Report: All four QBs to play

August, 8, 2013
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tom Coughlin said he will try to play all four of his quarterbacks against Pittsburgh on Saturday night.

Coughlin has mapped out about a quarter for Eli Manning. David Carr, Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib then will see snaps after Manning is done.

Coughlin, though, isn't revealing the order of quarterbacks after Manning and Carr.

"Don't worry about it," Coughlin said. "You'll see."

Full speed: Coughlin is eager to see how his young players deal with the increase in speed in the preseason opener.

"The thing that you are not prepared for other than the form tackling -- which is the number one defensive drill that we do -- you're going to tackle live for the first time," Coughlin said. "And you are going to be brought to the Earth for the first time. Ball security is a big issue. Head up, see what you hit. All those types of things that are taught from a fundamental standpoint are now going to happen full speed. People have to be ready for that."

"It will be a good first experience, I am sure," Coughlin later added. "We talked about being physical. We are playing against a very physical team."
