Sept 2 Tom Coughlin flips out after Odell Beckham question, admits first-round pick could miss up to three more weeks.
When a reporter asked about Beckham's status, the coach snapped: "Let's just let this kid get better, OK? Everybody, settle down. Let the kid get better. I went up to him yesterday.
Please stop bothering Tom Coughlin about Odell Beckham. The coach said regular questions about him have become exasperating.
Tom Coughlin said he'd prefer not to answer questions on Odell Beckham Jr.'s status until the Rookie returns to the field.

Eli Manning, Ben McAdoo under microscope for opener vs. Detroit Lions. Throughout the spring and summer, it's been a feeling-out process for a two-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback and an offensive coordinator who'd never called an NFL play. Now it's time.
Eli Manning says he doesn't care what the outside perception of the Giants' offense is. The fact that the passing game didn't show much in the preseason doesn't thrill him, but he is not bothered by how much it's worrying the fans.

From the moment he injured his foot on June 12, Jon Beason's goal was to play in the season opener in Detroit on Sept. 8. Beason practiced for the first time since he suffered a ligament tear and a small fracture to the sesamoid in his foot during an OTA workout.
Giants welcome return of middle linebacker Jon Beason. Jon Beason passed his first test. When the whistle blew and the defense was called to the field early in Monday's practice, Beason won what usually is a daily footrace with coordinator Perry Fewell to reach the football.
The Giants were without their defensive leader all of training camp. They expect to have him back for the regular season opener on Monday night in Detroit.
They do not know yet how much he will be able to play in next Monday Night's season opener in Detroit. But tthe Giants were excited to see their defensive team leader practicing with them Monday morning.

Giants know false start to new season is unacceptable. Of all the harsh lessons the Giants learned last year, perhaps the most important was the significance of a fast start.
On Opening Night, Sept. 8, in Detroit, they're going to be put to a difficult immediate test. "Exactly," cornerback Prince Amukamara said. "The Lions offense likes to sling it. It's definitely going to be a great challenge for us."
The Giants defense has quietly gone about their business -- dominating on a daily basis at practice-- in preparation for what they believe will be a big season. The talent may be there, but unless it is maximized, their strength on paper means little.

Here's the list of the Giants practice squad players as they are revealed: (Note: DT Kelcy Quarles was claimed off waivers by the Patriots so he was not available for the Giants practice squad.).

Sept 1 Special Report - The Giants named seven of their possible 10 practice squad players Sunday and six of them spent the summer with the team. Those with summer-long familiarity were running back Michael Cox, cornerbacks Chandler Fenner and Bennett Jackson, linebacker Dan Fox, defensive end Jordan Stanton and wide receiver Julian Talley.

The owner can love you, the general manager can respect you, and there will inevitably come a time when the winning has stopped for whatever reason and you will be asked: What have you done for us lately? And so, as the calendar turns to September, Rex Ryan and the Jets intensify preparations for the Raiders, and Tom Coughlin and the Giants intensify preparations for the Lions. That said, it's time for each of them to coach a playoff team again.

Due to the Odell Beckham Jr. injury and the inability of Mario Manningham to make the team, the New York Giants ended up having to carry six wide receivers, staff writer Dan Salomone highlights 3 things you need to know about each member of the Giants practice squad.

Embarking on a new path the Giants enter 2014 with an overhauled roster and a pass-friendly offense. Seeking someone to redesign and lead the new offense, the Giants eschewed conventional choices and handed the reins to a little-known coach from Green Bay, Ben McAdoo.
Predicting the Giants season record in 2014. In striving for objectivity, we need to use a tool that can assess the Giants chances for wins and losses in each game without interjecting an opinion..

Aug 31 The Giants made 22 roster moves to reach the regular-season limit of 53 players, and coach Tom Coughlin said many of the decisions were difficult to make.
On the eve of his 68th birthday, the Giants coach said he was touched not only by the improbable storylines of the players he kept, but by the emotions of those he had to cut.
Corey Washington and defensive end Kerry Wynn are the only two undrafted rookies who made the team. "They're great stories and that's what this thing is all about," coach Tom Coughlin said.

The Giants cut four players, waived 14 others, placed two on injured reserve, two more on the reserve/suspended list and activated linebacker Jon Beason from PUP. That's a lot of action. And guess what? They're not done yet.
Breaking down the defense/special teams on cut day. The defense is expected to be the strength of the Giants team this season. Maybe that is why there were few surprises on that side of the ball.
The team is now ready to open the season next Monday in Detroit against the Lions. Here's a quick overview of the final 53-man roster, along with a few thoughts on the final group at each position.

The Giants placed wide receiver Mario Manningham and kick return specialist Trindon Holliday on season-ending injured reserve Saturday. Manningham strained a calf muscle in Thursday's preseason finale, and Holliday struggled with a hamstring injury throughout training camp. There was no point during August at which either player appeared likely to make the team.

He was the bright star of the Giants' dismal preseason, the touchdown machine on the team that struggled to find the end zone. And now, Corey Washington is officially a Giant.
Corey Washington made everyone scramble for their rosters this preseason and ask themselves, "Who is No. 6, and how tall is he?" But after the 6-foot-4, 214-pound wide receiver caught four key touchdowns in four consecutive games, no one needed a cheat sheet any longer.

Aug 30 Eli Manning: Giants offense will be a season-long 'work in progress'.
Eli Manning admits it could take all season to master Ben McAdoo's West Coast offense.
Eli Manning is only fooling himself with his confidence.
Ben McAdoo said earlier this month, "we need to be 100 percent ready to go."
Giants will practice four more times before their Sept. 8 "Monday Night Football" opener.

Mario Manningham may have missed his chance to prove he should be on the Giants roster.
Henry Hynoski era may be over after shoulder injury.
Giants have a decision to make on linebacker Jon Beason by Saturday's 4 pm deadline.
One final projection of the Giants' 53-man roster before the final cuts are made Saturday.

Aug 29 Five preseason games weren't enough for Eli Manning and the Giants' passing game to show anything, and they will go into the regular season still wondering about the state of their offense.
Eli Manning shaky, running game promising as Giants beat Patriots 16-13 in preseason finale The only thing working in the 16-13 preseason win was Rashad Jennings and the run game.
Eli Manning finished the preseason 20 of 41, for 188 yards and one touchdown. In what was basically 1 1/2 games of football, it's not what the Giants were expecting. That being said, the word throughout the week was progress.
The Giants had a rare five preseason games this year. Plenty of time to answer any questions about the team you'd think. By the time Thursday night's matchup with the New England Patriots was complete, everything was supposed to come into focus. Uh, not so much.

Aug 28 Patriots will try to tarnish Giants' perfect record -- in preseason. Seven years. That's how long the Patriots have waited for Thursday night's preseason game. A chance to exact revenge on the Giants for the most soul-crushing loss in their franchise's history.
The Giants are playing the Patriots on Thursday night in a game that means little outside of the final injury report.
Struggling Giants should focus only on avoiding more injuries heading into final preseason game vs. Patriots. The goal for Thursday's preseason finale vs. the Patriots is to avoid Eli Manning taking any more hits.

Victor Cruz doesn't need this game. Eli Manning doesn't. And Antrel Rolle certainly doesn't. The starters will play 15-18 snaps, honing the Giants' inconsistent offense one final time.
None of the five running backs was sent packing, but one of them will have to go on Saturday when the final cuts trim the roster from 75 players to 53.
Mario Manningham may be a Super Bowl icon, but he still has to make the Giants. So far he probably hasn't done enough to, so Thursday night will be his final opportunity. .
The fine-tuning continues, as most of the Giants starters will get 15-18 snaps on Thursday night in the preseason finale against the Patriots.

Wanna bet? The NFL season is almost upon us, and that means, if you are so inclined, time is running out to get down those prop bets. Several interesting numbers have been established for the Giants this season, all courtesy of Bovada Sportsbook.

The Giants didn't want to keep kicker Brandon McManus. But they didn't want to play against him either. That's a big reason why they traded him to the Denver Broncos on Tuesday afternoon for, possibly, absolutely nothing, according to an NFL source. They got word that the Philadelphia Eagles might claim him. So instead of allowing that, the Giants sent him to Denver for a conditional seventh-round draft pick.

Aug 27 Coach Tom Coughlin expects Eli Manning and the rest of the Giants' offensive starters to play 15-18 snaps in Thursday's preseason finale against the Patriots.
The Giants made 15 transactions to reach the NFL roster limit of 75 players in advance of the deadline. Two players were placed on injured reserve: safety Cooper Taylor, who injured the sesamoid bone in his left foot in Indianapolis, and wide receiver Marcus Harris, who has a hip injury.
Mario Manningham was not one of the 15 players on the cut-down list Tuesday when the New York Giants reduced their roster from 90 to 75 players, but that doesn't mean he's making the team.
Charles James is gone. And Antrel Rolle is not happy about it. The Giants on Tuesday trimmed 15 players off their roster to go from 90 players to 75, and the mild surprise was the departure of James, a 23-year-old cornerback who played in 12 games last season.

On both sides of the ball, players with championship pedigree and the Super Bowl rings to show for it sounded a warning that, although the Giants might be having a rough summer, there's every reason to view them as worthy title contenders.
Mathias Kiwanuka, Victor Cruz have Super expectations for Giants this season. Cruz stressed the off-the-field bonding that has taken place this summer. He said it happened naturally as guys clicked with their personalities -- often before they clicked on the field with the new offense -- and started spending time together.

Josh Brown wins Giants' kicking job; CB Charles James 'shocked' by release. Brown may not have had the strongest kicking leg in Giants camp this summer, but the team decided he had the best.
Josh Brown was the veteran who had earned Giants coach Tom Coughlin's trust with a strong season last year. That trust proved to be the deciding factor when the team needed to make a decision.
Brandon McManus looked good on kickoffs during the preseason, but Brown did nothing to lose the job with the Giants.

Injured Giants guard Geoff Schwartz got good news on Monday when he learned his toe injury was "just a minor setback" and that he may even be back sometime next month.
Schwartz visited Monday with Dr. Robert Anderson, a foot specialist in Charlotte, N.C. and the Giants were braced for ominous news - possibly the loss of Schwartz for the entire season.


Aug 26 There could be a lot of different ways to describe what went down at Giants practice on Monday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center.
There's one more person getting fed up with Ben McAdoo's new offense: Ben McAdoo. McAdoo was heard yelling at his offense to make a play, only using a bit more colorful language.
'Make a f--king play!': McAdoo is frustrated with Giants, too. From the limited sample of Ben McAdoo as an offensive coordinator, it is easy to tell he is not shy about stating his case.
The Giants don't open the season for two weeks. However, they look no closer to resembling a polished product on offense now than they did back when this whole process started.
You can expect to see more of Kevin Gilbride's old system folded into McAdoo's new one. "That are routes that Victor's run a bunch over the years that you're going to try to put him in those positions to run those routes that he can win," Manning said.

The Giants' hope, when training camp began, was that someone from their group of unproven tight ends would emerge as a clear starter -- a do-it-all tight end who could be used in a variety of roles.
Tom Coughlin admitted the Giants do not have one player who can be considered a complete tight end and so it will have to be a tight end by committee.

Aug 25 As the regular season approaches, it becomes more and more apparent that running back Rashad Jennings could be the most important part of the New York Giants' offense.
Rashad Jennings pledges to protect Eli Manning. Jennings not only brings that game awareness and studiousness in his own career but is rubbing off on rookie Andre Williams.
With Andre Williams showing positive signs, the Giants think they've got a potent 1-2 punch. Jennings is trying to teach Williams and the other backs to use their eyes as well as their legs.
RB Peyton Hillis (ankle) returned to practice and looked like he was moving well. Head coach Tom Coughlin said that Hillis "did okay" in his first practice back, but did look a little rusty.

We've gone hoarse calling for Corey Washington to get more (or any) reps with the first string. He's eager to prove what he can do against first-string defensive backs and he's become too much of a household name to slip through waivers.
Washington is tied for the team lead with nine receptions this preseason. He leads the team with 152 yards and four touchdowns. He may be raw, but he has rare size (6-4, 214) and a skill that has stood out on a daily basis at Giants training camp and practices.
If Corey Washington does not turn out to be the new Victor Cruz, tell me who the second-most reliable wide receiver is after Cruz. Tell me how much you think the Giants are going to get out of tight end.

In an offseason in which fixing the offensive line was the Giants' clear No. 1 priority, Geoff Schwartz was their first call. They targeted Schwartz early and signed him as soon as free agency began.
Two days after losing left guard Geoff Schwartz to a toe injury, the Giants practiced Sunday without starting right guard Brandon Mosley. "His back tightened up," Giants coach Tom Coughlin explained after practice.
If anyone knows what it's like to be a rookie offensive lineman pressed into service due to an injury, it's Justin Pugh. It happened to him last summer.This year it's Weston Richburg who is getting the battlefield promotion.
Richburg will almost certainly start the season-opener at left guard. "As an offensive lineman, you have to be ready for something like that," Richburg said Sunday.
The second-round pick was solid in rookie camp and seems to have a grasp of the new offense. He has improved from a poor preseason opener against Buffalo. If he can handle bigger defensive tackles, he might be a viable option.

Aug 24 Hours after his team's most complete victory of the preseason, Tom Coughlin spent most of his conference call with the media discussing subjects he'd prefer to avoid - injuries and penalties.
Tom Coughlin has taken issue
with some of the illegal contact calls, which are a point of emphasis for officiating crews this season. "The one that is difficult right now is the illegal contact when in fact there isn't any disruption in the receiver's route or whatever after five yards."
Tom Coughlin ticked over penalty flags After four penalty-filled preseason games, Coughlin says his defenders need to stop worrying about the officiating and start playing within the new rules.

Don't be fooled. Numbers can sometimes be deceiving. In this case, 35 points and a 4-0 preseason record might be just that. The Giants problems in their exhibition games -- including their 35-24 victory over the Jets on Friday night -- should not be overlooked.
As veterans such as Eli Manning, Will Beatty and Jason Pierre-Paul try to return to form, the Giants are going to need help from those with far less experience and far smaller paychecks.
Giants offense fueled by rushing duo of Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams Together they have provided an impressive, although not entirely consistent, 1-2 punch since the very beginning of the summer.

Giants may reshuffle offensive line. Geoff Schwartz was brought in to be a stabilizing force on the Giants' revamped offensive line. Now the Giants may have to play the season without him.
Giants guard Geoff Schwartz will be heading to Charlotte this week to visit foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in order to get more information on his dislocated toe, a person familiar with the situation confirmed to The Star-Ledger.

Giants vs. Jets: 5 positives from Friday's win .

Aug 22 Special Report - It is rapidly approaching the time when experimentation is over, when fiddling with starting lineups has come to an end, when head coach Tom Coughlin has to scan over his potential starters and, well, just pick 'em. He should know enough about all his players by now, and he knows how the veterans have performed not only this summer by last season, and, well, it's time.
Making matters more crucial, Friday night's opponent (7:30) is the other franchise that called MetLife Stadium its home, the New York Jets, and while there is less love lost than years ago, it is still essential for the mental well-being of the players that they win. The players on both teams, that is.

As Eli Manning and the Giants' first-team offense currently try to embrace the sense of urgency involved with getting things together against the Jets, Victor Cruz remains confident the new system will click - perhaps suddenly, too, just as he did back in the summer of 2010..
There has been an ebb and flow between the Giants and Jets in almost every aspect throughout the years, from overall success to quarterback play to number of headlines garnered. But for the last three decades, one advantage has remained virtually constant. The Giants have almost always had the more established, more feared, more decorated and flat-out better defensive line.

It never seemed like a dream marriage. And now, things are on the verge of a nightmare. This is what it has come down to for Eli Manning and the Giants' new-but-hardly-improved offense.
The Giants do not own exclusive rights to summer offensive struggles, but they lead the league in preseason angst. Their newly installed attack is: 1) getting out the kinks but on the right track, or 2) a total disaster.
Eli Manning can say what he wants about not being worried over the Giants' sluggish offense so far in the preseason. Phil Simms isn't buying it. If Simms were wearing McAdoo's headset, he'd be calling in as many plays as necessary that will give Manning some confidence that he can operate an offense that has taken even the best quarterbacks years to master.

Giants coach Tom Coughlin keeps getting asked over and over, day after day. What's going on at the tight end position? The answers seem to get vaguer and vaguer. Coughlin's latest gem provided, well, nothing of substance.
Jerome Cunningham could provide the pass-catching threat at tight end the Giants have lacked. Cunningham certainly stood out in practice on Wednesday, catching a short touchdown pass from backup quarterback Ryan Nassib, and later a much longer TD toss from starter Eli Manning, earning audible praise from head coach Tom Coughlin on multiple occasions.

Jon Beason wasn't just rehabbing this summer. He was researching. He wanted to find out the Giants' single-season record for tackles and who held it. It seemed like a simple task. With 89 years of franchise history he was certain he'd come across a mythic number attached to a mythic name. Sam Huff. Lawrence Taylor. Harry Carson. One of the all-time greats.

Former Giants
Kevin Gilbride confident in Eli, new Giants offense. "My feeling is they're kind of fighting through this, and once they start paring down the offense for a specific opponent, they'll be much better than they've shown to date," said former offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.
Jared Lorenzen - How the hefty' ex-Giants quarterback, tried to avoid Tom Coughlin's fines for being overweight. He's the subject of an ESPN The Magazine feature by Tommy Tomlinson in which his battles with his weight were revealed.

Aug 21 First-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. was on the sidelines for the second consecutive day Wednesday, but fellow wide receivers Corey Washington and Marcus Harris continue to impress.
Odell Beckham may add to NY Giants GM Jerry Reese's draft duds. This was a critical draft for Reese, who has had far too many misses among his picks in recent years.

After three weeks of focusing on the long shots and the rookies, this is the week where the starters need to start defining the look of this year's team. Sustained drives on offense and getting off the field on defense are what we're hoping to see from the starters.
The offense did look crisper Wednesday, with Eli Manning connecting with his receivers more often than he has in many practices thus far. More telling will be Friday night's game against the Jets, in which Giants coach Tom Coughlin plans to play his starters the entire first half, or close to it.
This week at practice, the Giants continued to tinker with the line's lineup, in the hopes of finding a five-man combination that works. Though rebuilding the unit was supposedly the franchise's No. 1 priority this offseason, it remains very much a work in progress with just 2 1/2 weeks to go before the regular-season opener.

Jason Pierre-Paul concedes that Giants have issues to work on with two preseason games left, but still proclaims that Big Blue is better than Jets.
Disregarding the fact it's a preseason game, Pierre-Paul vowed the Giants are "going to make a statement" in Friday night's annual exhibition with the crosstown Jets at MetLife Stadium.

Most of practice was spent working against plays that the Jets are expected to run in Friday's preseason game. The Giants call it a "carded" practice because the scout team runs plays off cards with the opposing team's schemes printed on them.

The big topic of conversation at Giants camp Tuesday was the absence of first-round draft pick Odell Beckham Jr., who is back on the sideline and was ruled out for Friday's game against the Jets.
Tom Coughlin is hopeful the talented rookie will quickly make up for lost time. "He's been in every meeting," Coughlin said.
Practicing one day and sitting out the next while being scratched from an upcoming game does not appear to be progress under anyone's definition.
The latest setback, er, issue with the 12th overall pick only further enhances the possibility he may not be ready for the Giants' season opener at Detroit on Sept. 8.

Count Giants general manager Jerry Reese among those who were excited about the 64 new jobs added in the NFL on Tuesday. The league announced the expansion of practice squads from eight to 10 players through the 2016 season.
