The Giants’ pass rush is awful. How awful? There are 26 players in the league who have at least as many sacks as the Giants have as a team. And Sunday, despite talking all week about the need to hit Peyton Manning to make him uncomfortable, they were credited with only two hits and no sacks.

“We’re better than that, we’re better than that,” Coughlin said. “And when we do get there we have...

The Giants are certainly relieved not to have to face Von Miller, a Defensive Player of the Year candidate currently serving a six-game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse police and continuing to find himself in more trouble on an almost daily basis.

But there is one Giants player who is disappointed that Miller won’t be making the trip to New Jersey this weekend.

That’d...

Adewale Ojomo said he knew he would be back on the active roster soon. But not because he had any inside knowledge about how the Giants would be fiddling with their 53.

“They didn’t tell me,” he said of the team’s plans. “I just had faith. That’s it.”

Ojomo, a fan favorite and the king of summertime sacks for the Giants who has posted 6.5 of them in the last two preseasons, was waived...

Let’s start with the ones who returned to action. Chris Snee (hip) was taking pretty much all of the first-team reps at right...

Damontre Moore said he doesn’t know much about the controversy surrounding former teammate and current Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, but he did vouch for the Heisman Trophy winner’s personality.

“Honestly, I don't really have any thoughts on it," Moore said when asked about investigations and reports that Manziel accepted money for autographs and memorabilia. “[Manziel] is...

The Giants were in full pads as promised today, and while they ran some 9-on-7 running plays that were close to live (no full tackling) and were doing some good hitting in 11-on-11s, the team did not engage in any goal-line plays. It’s usually the most exciting aspect of any camp, when the guys get down in the trenches and square off. But Tom Coughlin does not like to run those in training camp.
