Now that we’ve seen how fast many of the NFL’s offenses will be operating this season, with the Broncos and Eagles setting the early pace and 12 teams getting at least 70 offensive snaps in their openers, the pressure will be on the Giants to try to keep up.

“I feel like we have a pretty good defense as well and they can do a good job of stopping the pass and stopping the run and creating...

Antrel Rolle was coy about when he might return to practice, but not what he’ll do when he does.

“You’ll see when I see,” he said. “I don’t know. Whenever I’m out there you’ll know I’m out there. I’ll make a lot of noise.”

Rolle was doing some intense agility drills and running yesterday and looked like he was on the verge of returning. It was last Monday that he sprained his ankle and...

Giants tight end Larry Donnell practices during team

Well, I don’t think THAT was scripted on the scouting cards.

Most of practice was played off of the diagrams that the coaches make up to prepare for the upcoming opponent, so there was very little in the way of live action. Guys were playing hard and there were some interesting things to note, but most of it was just working on fits and placements in shells.

Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas may be getting eased back in as far as his snap count goes, but when it comes to the competition he’s facing, he’s cannonballing into the pool.
