You are never going to see Tom Coughlin get flustered by the media. He’ll never turn sideways to make his point or turn his press conference into a sideshow. When he’s at the podium he makes it clear he’s in control as unflappable as they come.

But there are still some things that make Coughlin’s skin crawl to the point where even he can’t hide his emotions. Careless turnovers are one of those things. And as he showed on Wednesday morning questions about careless turnovers are another.

And so about 7½ minutes into his first press conference of Manning Bowl III week after being peppered with questions about his butter-fingered running back David Wilson Coughlin had finally had enough of the subject. He didn’t want to say if Wilson will start on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. He didn’t want to discuss what Wilson would have to do to hold onto his job.

In fact he seemed so frustrated by the subject of Wilson and fumbles that he just didn’t want to discuss it at all.

“Geez. Man oh man oh man oh man” Coughlin said. “I can’t say any more about David Wilson except that if I watch him in practice and his technique doesn’t improve I’ll let you know. OK? I’ll let you know. In practice he’s going to have to have the ball in that position all the time not just when he thinks he’s running free and there’s nobody around him. I want to see the ball in the right spot all the time.

“And quite frankly there’s nowhere else to go with this. I don’t know what else to say to you. I realize it’s a major issue for everybody. But there’s a way to carry the ball and there’s a way to protect the ball. Ball security is No. 1. And that’s what he’s going to have to demonstrate.”

Of course while telling us all that he didn’t want to talk about it Coughlin ended up speaking volumes about the Giants’ biggest problem. These are desperate times when it comes to the 22-year-old Wilson even though the Giants are just 0-1. They had such high hopes for their 2012 first-round pick who suffered a lost season last year after a Week 1 fumble earned him three months in Coughlin’s doghouse. But those hopes were quickly dashed with his two fumbles in the Giants’ 36-31 loss in Dallas on Sunday night.
