Ok, so he didn't say it in exactly those words. But when Tom Coughlin was asked whether or not he is concerned about Shawn Andrews' history of back troubles -- a good question considering the now-starting left tackle has missed the last two practices with a sore back -- Coughlin changed the subject to landscaping.
"The fact that you're standing on my grass concerns me," he said. "Yes, everything concerns me."
The point of the statement was to say that no blade of grass is too minute to avoid Coughlin's attention.
The sub-point was that we in the media should stick to the sidewalks.
