T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Don’t think the first day of OTAs is important? Let’s go back to last year’s and see what kind of tone the opening of team workouts set for the rest of the season.
We all went into the start of OTAs in 2013 thinking the big story would be the absence of Victor Cruz. Well, it turned out that the real issue was the absence of Hakeem Nicks, who had been working with the team throughout the offseason...Read more »
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Last year’s battle for backup quarterback ended in a draw as both Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib made the roster. That left the Giants with three quarterbacks on the roster for the first time since 2007. This year, Tom Coughlin would like to have a winner in that competition.
And even though the Giants re-signed Painter, it’s clear that Nassib has the edge.

Chris Snee’s contract will be restructured and he will take a pay cut. But it probably won’t happen before the start of the new league year on Tuesday.
The Giants’ don’t need to trim Snee’s number to get under the salary cap by that 4 p.m. deadline – they’re actually in very good shape in that regard – but they’d still like to save a few (million?) bucks on a player who they hope will be but...Read more »
Our friend (and former Giants reporter) Zack Berman in Philadelphia pointed out this morning that the Eagles now have their entire offensive line signed through the 2016 season. Must be nice. Because as I pointed out in contrast, the Giants do not have a single offensive lineman that they can ink into any starting spot for the 2014 season as of right now. Sure, Chris Snee wants to return for one...Read more »
Indianapolis – Promising that there will be “significant differences” on the roster in 2014, Giants general manager Jerry Reese spoke about some of the veteran players who are in one way or another on the verge of becoming former Giants. Among them are some mainstays on the team – Justin Tuck and Chris Snee – along with others such as Hakeem Nicks, Jon Beason and David Baas.
“It’s a big puzzle,”...Read more »
INDIANAPOLIS – We’re here at the NFL Scouting Combine to talk about the future players, but inevitably when coaches come to the podium questions turn to the players already on the roster. Particularly the ones who are coming off of injuries or heading into free agency. So here’s a roundup of the current Giants that Tom Coughlin spoke about on Friday:
“We’re very confident...Read more »
David Baas fought through multiple offseason surgeries to be ready for the start of training camp, an accomplishment he was very proud of. Since the season started, though, it’s been injury after injury. Today, the starting center was put on season-ending injured reserve after re-injuring his knee in Monday night’s game against the Vikings.
Baas played only one full game this season. He missed...Read more »
There was no sign of relief for the Giants’ offensive line at practice today.
Neither Chris Snee (hip) nor David Baas (neck) were on the field with the team during the portion of the workout open to the media. With one more day of practice remaining, there continues to be slimmer and slimmer chances that the two veterans will be ready to play on Sunday in Kansas City.
David Diehl did...Read more »
A day after one of the worst showings by the Giants offensive line in some time, two veteran pieces of the group had MRIs to determine if they can continue to play.
Guard Chris Snee and center David Baas, both of whom underwent offseason surgery, were examined on Monday. Snee is coming off hip surgery this offseason while Baas, who missed the opening game with a sprained MCL and had several...Read more »
