Bradshaw, Coughlin address Sunday's sideline argument

The SportsXchange

New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw grabbed considerable national attention for his heated sideline conversation with coach Tom Coughlin during Sunday's game against Washington, and he said on Monday he was pleading with his coach to run the ball more.

"I was just saying, 'Run the ball,' going onto the field," Bradshaw said, according to's "A lot of my emotions kicking in. I just want to help my team win as much as possible."

Coughlin told reporters on Monday that he has spoken with Bradshaw about the exchange.

"There's never been any question about Ahmad Bradshaw's toughness, his intensity level," Coughlin said during his meeting with the media. "He plays the game hard. You know, you like to have everybody play as hard as he does. He gives it everything he's got.

"And so, you want people to recognize that fact, but sometimes you do have to control yourself and control your emotions. And he's working on it."

Bradshaw also smacked Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz in the back of the helmet during Sunday's game, apparently for missing a block on a Bradshaw run.

"Yeah, it didn't tickle, to say the least," Cruz said, according to "But it's all fine. He just wants the best out of everyone. On that specific play, he felt like I could've done more. I agree with him, and we hugged it out later on."
