"I really don't think for the last two weeks we have had much pressure on the quarterback," Coughlin said. "I think there has to be a lot of self-analysis there in terms of not only how we are going about our business but exactly who is doing what. I think we need to look hard at that and we are talking about that."
Coming off a very impressive win over Seattle the week before, the Giants went to Cleveland knowing that the Browns (2-3) would be desperate.
The Browns played that way. Coughlin was disappointed the Giants did not match the intensity.
"This team will bounce back. I believe that," Coughlin said. "I think it will be a good week of focus and a good week of practice. It is disappointing to fall into whatever lapse we fell into in not playing as well as we have been playing."
Three other Giants also were injured in the game. Weakside linebacker Gerris Wilkinson had a mild knee sprain. His status is uncertain. Safety James Butler aggravated a biceps injury and middle linebacker Antonio Pierce aggravated a quad that he hurt last week.
Center Shaun O'Hara was treated at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York for an infected toe on Tuesday.
Receiver David Tyree, who made the key catch off the top of his helmet in the Super Bowl win over the Patriots, has recovered from knee injury and was activated off the physically unable to perform list. He will practice this week. The team has three weeks to decide whether to place him on the active roster, put him on injured reserve or cut him.
