The Giants expect big things from Moore in 2015 after he registered 5.5 sacks and 32 tackles last season. The 6-5, 250-pounder is entering his third season.
"Young Damontre, everybody wants him in the ball game, he did have some success the other day with one sack," Coughlin said. "He should have been playing a little bit more (Week 12 vs. Dallas)."
Despite Moore showing at times he could help the pass rush, he has spent a lot of time on the bench this season.
"Because there are times, to be honest with you, during the week when you talk about confidence level, whether it's assignment football or whatever, for whatever reason, it hasn't been something that we thought [Moore] knows exactly what he's doing and so on and so forth," Coughlin said. "The practices have to fulfill the idea that we can go ahead and play him under all kinds of circumstances is what we'd like to do, not just on third down."
