"It's wide open," Beason said Monday, via the New York Post. "It's still too early to say anybody is the favorite, which is a good thing. You start off 0-2, it's tough to stay in the race, especially when you lose a divisional game."
Coach Tom Coughlin said Sunday's victory made the team "relevant," also claiming the team is still in the hunt for the divisional title -- despite the strong criticism the team received after blowing late leads in Week 1 and 2 vs. Dallas and Atlanta, respectively.
"It's always good to be, at this point in time in a season, looking at our start and to know that you're in the mix," Coughlin said. "I chose that word to make them understand it's a word that puts you in position, but you're not there. You've got a long way to go and that's the significance of that term."
"We're just getting started," Coughlin told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver as he left the field on Sunday. "Whatever happens, whatever people say, we just keep rolling. When people say we're down, we just keep swinging. That's what we do."
