It's been hours since I last blogged because my day has been jammed with events from 7 a.m. this morning. After I left Amani Toomer, I arrived at the Giants hotel for their final camera time before Sunday.

Tom Coughlin was very delightful, grinning from ear-to-ear, but he didn't mince words when it came to delivering some strong quotes. I especially liked his "It's still us verse the world.... Talk is cheap and we are still the underdogs."

He mentioned the Giants have done an "outstanding" job not producing bulletin-board material. Coughlin says he want pleased with Osi Umenyiora yesterday for skipping out on the media, but assured us he would address the media today. Oh boy, did he ever.

While Coughlin was taking at the podium, the media surrounded Umenyiora's table 40 minutes before he was scheduled to appear. Take a look at this picture I posted on Twitter.

See some of the raw iPhone videos I shot with Devin Thomas, general manager Jerry Reese, Brandon Jacobs and Jason Pierre-Paul below in the reated content field.

Take a look at the video embedded above for a laugh. JPP spotted a camera he really liked that a photographer was using to take his photo. JPP was asking how much it was, where he got it and some of its features.
