Tom Coughlin still believes in the New York Giants.

With the season seemingly slipping away after a second straight 0-2 start, Coughlin didn't hesitate Monday to say that this team can turn things around.

The 68-year-old coach who has led the Giants to two Super Bowl titles but missed the postseason the past two years said the reasons the Giants are losing are obvious. They have turned the ball over six times and failed to record a takeaway. They have committed untimely penalties, made mental errors, and there is no way they are going to win scoring a combined 28 points.

It's like a year ago, except this is a better team and Coughlin hopes it shows up soon. It had better, or another 0-6 start wouldn't be farfetched.
