T-Rock's Take on the Giants
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...Read more »
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...Read more »
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...Read more »
Well, the big news of the day was Antrel Rolle going down with an ankle injury, the severity of which has yet to be determined. But practice went on without him once he was carted off and the flow of injured players returning to the field and those leaving it continued.
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...Read more »
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...Read more »
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.
Why...Read more »
There was a new sound at practice today. The pop of plastic rang through the crisp summer air as the Giants dressed in shoulder pads for the first time since their 2012 season ended on Dec. 30. And there was much rejoicing.
"It was good, it's always good to get started that way,” Tom Coughlin said. “It was real good to see … They were very enthusiastic about it and we'd like to think...Read more »
Damontre Moore is all about shedding labels these days.
The rookie defensive end is trying to get away from the stickers others have placed on him. One is that he’s just a pass-rusher.
“I want to be well-rounded and try to add a lot of things to my arsenal that way I won’t be a one-trick pony,” he said. “That’s all I’ve been labeled as. I’m just trying to go out there and prove a lot...Read more »
