Just a quick summary of training camp reports from Giants.com, Big Blue Wrecking Crew, Big Blue Interactive, and Inside Football. Curiously for a paid news service the Inside Football reports are not as interesting as one would expect. I hope the people who pay get better stuff than what they’ve got on their site.
Curtis Deloatch has impressed most observers and with our 2nd round pick holding out he has a good shot at becoming the #3 cornerback. Strahan and McKenzie have been battling well; this probably means Strahan is back since McKenzie is one of the biggest and best right tackles out there. William Joseph has been uninspiring. However, Osi has been getting some good press. Antonio Pierce is also practicing well.
Eli has also been impressing the observers, though the backup quarterbacks haven’t been. The receivers look good; Toomer seems to be helaed and consistent. Burress has the observers talking about his size and determination. And the battles between Taylor, Carter, Tyree, Ponder, and Jennings has most observers convinced our receiving corps will be strong. Seubert is practicing and everyone is encouraged but reluctant to say all is well until they see more contact.
