EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - General manager Jerry Reese gave a strong indication that Tom Coughlin is going to remain the New York Giants coach next year despite a 2-6 record that puts them in danger of missing the playoffs for the fourth time in five seasons.

Speaking at a press conference Tuesday during the Giants' bye week, Reese said the 67-year-old Coughlin is an outstanding coach who has kept the team together despite an 0-6 start. He scoffed at the idea that the coach's age was an issue.

While disappointed with the record, Reese believes the Giants have a chance to win the weak NFC East. They are two games behind Dallas (4-4) with eight to play, including one against the Cowboys.
