The Giants have scored touchdowns on just 46.4% of their trips into opposing 20-yard lines, which looks like being a major factor as to why they will not make the playoffs this season.
On Friday, Coughlin was reminded of this statistic by reporters.
"Thank you for that observation. I hadn't thought about looking at the tape in that area," Coughlin responded sarcastically.
"I'd like to know why. You look at it, you have a minimum amount of snaps. You have a lot of people poured into the same area. You don't get started on first down right away with a play that's not successful, you're behind the 8-ball right now. That's kind of what has happened."
Coughlin's men are 4-7 in the NFC East, sitting behind both the Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles.
