A week and a half into training camp, a day before the first of August, and three days away from the preseason opener, Tom Coughlin seemed satisfied with the new offense.

"I think we have thrown a lot at them," the Giants' head coach said Thursday. "We are probably not quite halfway through all of the installations. There is a lot spinning and we have to find out what our people can do and gauge what we are doing according to our personnel. I don't have any issues right now but because of the fact that you play everybody, your missed assignments on a daily basis are sometimes more than you want them to be."

Eli Manning did not have a good practice, underthrowing Jerrel Jernigan on a deep pass down the right sideline so that it was broken up by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Manning ended the workout on an interception that was batted down by Jacquian Williams and into the arms of Jameel McClain. But Coughlin said he is pleased with the way the offensive line is coming together.

"The progress is being made and I thought we were a little sharper today in the nine on seven [running drills]," he said. "If we can just keep getting better in that area, so we can run it."
