New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin acknowledged last week that third-round draft pick Damontre Moore had gotten the coaching staff's attention with an outstanding start to training camp. The rest of the country saw what the Giants have been raving about when the rookie pass rusher known as "DaMonster" virtually was unblockable in Saturday's 18-13 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Moore blocked a punt had four tackles one quarterback hit and several pressures in addition to disrupting the Steelers' short-passing game. "Moore obviously was a problem for Pittsburgh from a pass rushing standpoint" Coughlin said via the New York Daily News. "He keeps coming. And he likes it." Originally viewed as a first-round talent after racking up 26.5 sacks in three seasons at Texas A&M Moore fell in the draft due to off-the-field concerns and an underwhelming performance at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine that had some NFL teams concerned about his athleticism.
