NFC East linebackers

Friday, May 29th, 2009

This article talks about NFC East linebackers and mentions that Pierce and Boley may not get as much recognition as they deserve.

Also interesting is the focus on defense in the NFC East. We were 3,4,5, and 8 of the league’s top defenses.

Clint Sintim article

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

Decent article here on Clint Sintim. Learn what kind of car he drives. Also Al Groh compared him to Carl Banks (but that was when he was coming out of high school I think).

Also interesting is that the Giants were real close to taking him at 29.

Are you curious about Travis Beckum?

Monday, May 18th, 2009

I am. I’m slightly worried that the Giants are going to abandon the run when it seems stupid do so like they did a few times last year but I’d also like to see us make some more completions over the middle and maybe Beckum is gonna make that happen. Interesting article here from Vacchiano.

Sha’reef Rashad looking good to make the Giants?

Saturday, May 16th, 2009

According to this article, Sha’reef Rashad is off to a good start. Since he is a safety and the Giants almost drafted him, this undrafted rookie free agent has a chance to stick around.

How well will Nicks learn the Giants offense?

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Apparently the Giants first round pick has a good shot at picking up the Giants offense quicker than other rookies:

the Giants think Nicks has a built-in advantage. In addition to having excellent speed and freakishly large hands (4XL gloves), Nicks spent hours watching film of Eli Manning and his receivers during college. Apparently offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach John Shoop was a big fan of the Giants’ offense, which might explain why everything seemed easy for Nicks at the Giants’ rookie minicamp last weekend.

Maurice Evans, a guy to root for

Monday, May 11th, 2009

The Giants have a lot of talent on the defensive line but maurice Evans thinks he belogs and chose the Giants over a few other teams. His story, as written here, is pretty powerful.

Giants rookie training camp reports

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

Paul Scwartz on the Giants’ new receovers.

Tom Canavan focuses on the receivers too.

Inside Football has a general report.

So does the Daily News.

So does the Star Ledger.

The Giants need Hakeem Nicks to play well

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Nice article here on Hakeem Nicks that can give us some optimism – this dude may just be #1 wide receiver material. Let’s hope!

Gotta love some of the quotes here. Very interesting interview with the Giants new defensive lineman:
