When Justin Pugh initially came off the field with concussion symptoms it was easy to tell that something wasn't right. "He didn’t feel well when he got inside and coming to the meeting was not an easy thing for him" Tom Coughlin said. "I don’t think there’s any question about that… That was proper. That’s the thing that he should have done. I don’t think even at any time would anyone who couldn’t really function to capacity would not bring that to the attention to the trainers or doctors." Coughlin was asked a question about whether someone in Pugh's position -- a rookie competing for a starting job -- would have reported concussion-like symptoms a few years ago.
