Aug 29 While Giants coach Ben McAdoo said Sunday that "frustration doesn't solve anything," he said he shares in Odell Beckham Jr.'s visible disgust on the field Saturday night with Big Blue's offensive performance.
McAdoo admitted "no one's happy with how the first offense operated" against the Jets, and understandably so. The starters played eight series, and all eight ended in a punt or interception.
McAdoo was so disgusted he wouldn't rule out playing some offensive starters in Thursday's preseason finale at home against the Patriots.

With Eli Manning on the field, the Giants did not run one play inside Jets' territory. They collected three first downs and Manning was sacked once, hit cleanly by a blitzing Calvin Pryor and the running game went nowhere fast.
When Ben McAdoo says the offense needs to "go forward," he doesn't mean in the sense of progressing to the next game and getting ready for the regular season. He means literally that they have to move forward. Like, instead of backward.

Giants players and their staff apparently made a point to stand for the National Anthem before their preseason game against the Jets on Saturday night, according to a local reporter.

Redskins - Five observations from the Redskins' preseason win over the Bills.

Aug 27 The third preseason game is known as the "dress rehearsal" around the NFL, the game where starters traditionally play the longest before kicking off the regular season. Coach Ben McAdoo said he would like to take the first stringers into "early in the third quarter."

The watching was the hardest part for Eli Apple. The rookie cornerback, a first-round draft pick from Ohio State, will return Saturday night to play against the Jets after missing the preseason game in Buffalo with a left knee injury suffered in the opener with the Dolphins.

The third preseason game is known as the "dress rehearsal" around the NFL, the game where starters traditionally play the longest before kicking off the regular season. Coach Ben McAdoo said he would like to take the first stringers into "early in the third quarter."

Aug 26 All signs point to Victor Cruz returning to face Jets. "It-s the story of my life," Cruz said. "You can-t write it any better than this. This is the way my career has gone. It-s the way my professional career has gone. The Jets preseason game has always been some type of landmark situation for me, so here we go again."
First-year head coach Ben McAdoo has played it cautiously, making sure not to sound too positive as Cruz navigated his way through training camp, suffered a setback when he was sidelined with a sore groin and slowly climbed back to health. McAdoo is not hiding his feelings any longer. "Very optimistic,-- he said about Cruz playing Saturday night.

The third preseason game is traditionally when starters play the longest, and McAdoo said he would like to take the first stringer into "early in the third quarter" against the Jets. The Giants lost their first two outings to the Dolphins and Bills and haven-t scored for seven consecutive quarters.
There are different levels of preseason hysteria. Neither the Jets nor Giants have particularly impressed this preseason, but that could mean nothing or everything depending on the team, says SiriusXM analyst and former NFL safety Solomon Wilcots.

A Florida judge has green-lighted Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul-s invasion-of-privacy lawsuit against ESPN and its reporter Adam Schefter for posting his private medical records online to millions of readers.

Former Giants
Tom Coughlin is certainly keeping busy. The former Giants coach, who joined the NFL earlier in the summer, has added a second new gig: He'll be joining the NFL's Competition Committee, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Aug 25 Today is Thursday, yesterday was Wednesday, and the game is Saturday. There is still plenty of time to go before Victor Cruz makes his official return to football for the first time since October of 2014.
Simply practicing two days in a row is a triumph for Cruz, who missed the first two preseason games with a groin injury. But now - knock on wood - the star wide receiver finally seems to be on course to play in the season opener in Dallas on Sept. 11.
Giants players and coaches are trying to not get too excited about how good Victor Cruz looked on the practice field again on Wednesday. They really are.

Giants coach Ben McAdoo promised a physical week of practice after the team's ugly 21-0 loss to the Bills on Saturday in the second preseason game. McAdoo delivered on Wednesday.
New kicker Randy Bullock got his first opportunity to show his teammates what he can do with the ball off his foot and it wasn't too shabby, at least from a kickoff perspective.

Giants president and co-owner John Mara, looking visibly shaken but steadfastly resolved, said Wednesday the organization knew about Josh Brown's 2015 domestic violence arrest and related allegations when the team re-signed the kicker this past April, and that the team will not cut Brown unless it's for football reasons.
And while many will continue to question the team's decision to keep Brown despite knowing about the May 2015 arrest and Molly Brown's accusations that her husband had physically abused her more than 20 times, Mara is now willing to stake his reputation and that of his organization on deciding to live with the consequences of his decision.
So the Giants are just like every other NFL franchise that cuts corners for wins. Got it. It's impossible to read this Josh Brown situation any other way. "I think this is an organization that always tries to do the right thing," owner John Mara said Wednesday during a press conference that even he admitted was days late. "I don't know that we always get it done, but we try." If they tried in this case, they failed.
Standing on a patio while his team practiced behind him, Mara spoke with reporters for almost 12 minutes. Mentioning his own four daughters and seven sisters - "I know I've got to face each one of them," he said - Mara insisted the Giants did their due diligence and reached, as he said, an "informed decision."

Aug 24 Victor Cruz participated in his first full practice since he injured his groin on Aug. 9, and while the entire organization was undoubtedly happy and relieved to see it happen, Beckham clearly was the most tickled by the return.
Lining up most often in the slot, Cruz caught several passes and demonstrated an impressive burst running upfield. Cruz did not speak publicly after the workout, but Odell Beckham Jr., his fellow star receiver and close friend, did.

Randy Bullock is walking into a unorthodox, and controversial, kicking situation. But while most figure the former Jet to be a short-timer here with the Giants, Bullock says he sees himself fighting with the embattled Josh Brown for a roster spot.
Bullock is looked at as the replacement during Josh Brown's suspension, but McAdoo wouldn't say if the signing of Bullock affects Brown's long-term standing with the team.
On Tuesday, head coach Ben McAdoo again hid behind his comments on Josh Brown from last Thursday. John Mara, who was at practice Tuesday, has not addressed the matter.

If you thought Josh Norman's disdain for the Giants started last December with his infamous battle with Odell Beckham Jr., you'd be way off. As it turns out, the Redskins cornerback has held a grudge against the Giants since before he entered the NFL.

Aug 23 Two days after Tom Obarski pulled a short field goal to the left in an ugly 21-0 preseason loss to the Bills, the Giants have made a move to bolster their unconventional kicking situation, waiving Obarski and signing veteran Randy Bullock after a successful tryout on Monday.
Obarski, who has never kicked in a regular-season game, hooked a 27-yard field goal attempt in a preseason loss in Buffalo. It was his only kick of the game. Obarski joined the Giants on Jan. 6.

Jason Pierre-Paul said the accusation of numerous acts of domestic violence made against Giants kicker Josh Brown by his now former wife in a 2015 police report "doesn't matter" and that he and his teammates "look past" those allegations.

Aug 22 Victor Cruz will join Giants during Monday's practice. There's no more "hopefully." No more "see how he feels" or "if all goes well" or "expecting."
The Giants wide receiver is scheduled to participate in a light practice on Monday. This will be Cruz's second attempt to return from a groin injury that first cropped up on Aug. 9.

The rehearsals have been good, but when the bright lights come on, the Giants have yet to perform to their capabilities. "We've seen some great things in practice that haven't carried over to the games yet," coach Ben McAdoo said today on a conference call. "But we still have some work to do."

The issues on offense, in the view of Ben McAdoo, are that the Giants are not physical enough, are not fundamentally strong enough and are not protecting the ball well enough. Rather than up the ante on the physical nature of his practices, the first-year head coach said he likes the drills he uses and sees no need for radical changes.

Giants attempt to reverse injury trend with new strength coach Aaron Wellman. Wellman, 42, just three years McAdoo's senior, is here because of the injury history. There is no issue more sensitive to the Giants than their inability to stay healthy for many years under Coughlin.

Giants owner John Mara and GM Jerry Reese still have not commented on the Josh Brown domestic violence suspension, related incidents and the team's re-signing of the veteran kicker. More importantly, they have not acted.

Eli Manning, Giants first-team offense can't get anything going in preseason loss to Bills.

Giants co-owner John Mara, as he exited the visitors' locker room after Saturday's 21-0 preseason loss to the Bills, had little to say about the budding controversy surrounding kicker Josh Brown.
The Giants said the same thing about the Josh Brown situation on Saturday. That is, they had nothing to say.

Aug 20 Some of the marquee names on the Giants' injury list will at least join the team in Buffalo for Saturday's preseason game (4 p.m., MY9). Wide receiver Victor Cruz (groin), cornerback Eli Apple (knee) and left guard Justin Pugh (shoulder) traveled with the team to Buffalo.
The Giants opened the preseason without two of their most important starters after coach Ben McAdoo opted to sit quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. However, all signs point toward them playing on Saturday (4 p.m. ET) against the Bills.

Aug 19 The heck with Rex Ryan's blitzes, even if it is preseason and even if Colts owner Jim Irsay strongly hinted last week that Andrew Luck took a seat because the team didn't want him subjected to Ryan's pass rush. Eli Manning wants the Bills' coach to give him everything he's got.
To say that Eli Manning is looking forward to playing in the Giants' second preseason game on Saturday is an understatement. With no confusion setting in about his status for this weekend's game, Manning said he's looking forward to playing against Ryan's aggressive defense.

Josh Brown does not agree with the NFL's decision to suspend him for the season opener for what he described as "just a moment'' that led to an arrest for domestic abuse, followed by a quick dismissal of the charges stemming from an incident that took place.
Josh Brown's ex-wife told police on the day of his 2015 arrest that the Giants kicker had been physically violent with her over 20 times and that she had previously had a protection order.

Aug 18 The Giants may be nearing the end of training camp, but there are still competitions to be won and lost on the depth chart. Middle linebacker is one of them.
The Giants will hold a shorter practice, perhaps even a walk-through, Thursday to wrap up the week before heading to Buffalo. Head coach Ben McAdoo, by the way, did say that he expected Eli Manning to get some snaps against the Bills.

Ben McAdoo said Eli Manning "absolutely" will play on Saturday against the Bills in the Giants' second preseason game. Manning did not play in the opener against Miami and there had been speculation the Giants might hold him out against Buffalo as well.

Victor Cruz has a succinct message for any doubters who think his career is over. "Tune in," the Giants receiver said after missing another practice because of a groin injury. "That's all."
Cruz didn't practice with the team, but completed several rigorous drills under the direction of strength and conditioning coach Aaron Wellman.

Why Giants long-time snapper Zak DeOssie is in a fight for job. DeOssie, the longest tenured Giant next to Manning, missed the final four games of the 2015 season after playing in 140 straight. He says his wrist, initially injured in Week 3, is fine now.

Giants kicker Josh Brown was suspended one game by the NFL for violating its personal conduct policy. Brown was arrested in May of 2015 on a domestic violence charge, according to documents obtained by NJ Advance Media. It is unclear if the arrest is the reason for his suspension.

Aug 17 The sky is not falling on Victor Cruz, and those calling for the Giants to cut their losses and move on from him should chill the heck out. Sometimes, where there is smoke, there is fire. Sometimes, it is merely smoke and easy to douse. All eyes Wednesday will be on Cruz when the Giants take the field.

The Giants in some ways did not get what they expected last season out of Dwayne Harris, and they realize the reason why. Harris was brought in to upgrade every aspect of the special teams,but the Giants never quite were able to utilize Harris the way they envisioned. He frequently was needed as the third receiver, and something had to give.

The Giants' 6-10 record wasn't the only thing that bothered Shane Vereen last year - he felt the running game came up short, too. Though Vereen wants the running game to improve as a whole, he is often associated more with the passing game. Last season, Vereen had nearly as many receptions (59) as he did rushes (61), and he's had at least 47 receptions in each of the last three years, dating back to his time in New England.

35,000 push-ups later, Giants' Andre Williams seeing work pay off. He started by doing 1,000 push-ups and 300 pull-ups for five straight days and gradually increased his workload until he was doing 2,500 push-ups and 600 pull-ups for five days. The results, he said, were fantastic. "It felt very good," he said this week after gaining a team-high 41 yards on nine carries, with a long of 16 yards.

With a $200 million-plus free-agent upgrade on defense, a promising first-round cornerback and a maddening sequence of narrow defeats in 2015, there is no in between this year for Giants cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. "[The Super Bowl] is definitely the talk around here," the 30-year-old elder statesman of the secondary said.

Kelvin Sheppard knew what he was getting into when he signed with the Giants as a free agent in April. With veteran middle linebacker Jasper Brinkley returning after starting the final nine games of last season, Sheppard was prepared for a position battle. That is exactly what has unfolded in training camp.

NFC East News
NFC East Roundup: Preseason Week 1 in the books.

Aug 16 Special Report - Most of you watched the Giants' offensive line try to play on Friday night. The operable word here is "try," since they didn't do all that well. But general manager Jerry Reese was satisfied, not that he wouldn't want to see the unit perform better. "It was the first game," he said, "and we have players who are experienced in this league."

Ben McAdoo revealed he had "a nice conversation" Sunday afternoon with Victor Cruz, the again-injured Giants receiver who missed another practice Monday because of a sore groin.
Cruz was not made available to the media after practice. The Giants are off Tuesday before returning to practice Wednesday. McAdoo would not rule him out for Saturday's preseason game at the Buffalo Bills, but it's hard to see Cruz playing in that contest if he does not practice Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the rest of Giants training camp pushed on without Cruz. Young receivers are fighting for roster spots and well aware that Cruz's status will affect their chances of making the 53-man roster and possibly the role they will play in the regular season.
So far, there's no indication the Giants are losing patience with Cruz, but if several young prospects continue to sparkle in camp, the organization could be faced with deciding how long is long enough to wait on Cruz. Odell Beckham and Shepard already are forming a promising tandem. In addition, Lewis and White are making the most of their share of reps in team drills.

In addition to Cruz, the Giants backed off a bit on receiver Sterling Shepard (groin), who didn't do any team drills. Not practicing were receiver Geremy Davis (hamstring), tight end Will Johnson (burner), fullback Nikita Whitlock (unknown), linebacker J.T. Thomas (hamstring/PUP), and defensive end Kerry Wynn (groin). McAdoo said that Shepard, who worked through some soreness yesterday, did not have a setback.

Finally somebody lit a fire under this Giants training camp on Monday, those somebodies being defensive tackle Damon "Snacks" Harrison and left guard Justin Pugh, who exploded into a brief heavyweight scuffle that was quickly squashed but left its mark on the sweltering practice's mood and tone.
It was hard to see what started the altercation, but Harrison clearly was upset. It looked like Harrison took a quick swing or two at Pugh, but the players were quickly separated. There was a little more jawing after the next play, but the other members of both lines didn't let it escalate.

Aug 15 Giants have that sinking feeling: Victor Cruz isn't getting better. McAdoo didn't sound as if he expected Cruz back on the field anytime soon.
Receiver Victor Cruz returned to practice on a limited basis after missing last week with a groin strain, did some individual drills, but not the participating in the receivers vs. defensive backs drills.
Cruz was able to do some activities, though not all. And he never appeared to run anything at full speed. Even the routes he engaged in with the full offense seemed to be dialed back from a sprint.

While Victor Cruz continues to be bothered by a groin injury, the rest of the Giants' injury report was positive on Sunday. Rookie wide receiver Sterling Shepard was a full participant in Sunday's practice. Rookie cornerback Eli Apple was dressed for practice, but worked on the side with other injured players.

Many of the Giants veterans have taken it upon themselves to help out the younger guys during this training camp and Landon Collins has been no exception. The second-year safety has taken it upon himself to mentor for rookie Darian Thompson.
If he's still there when the Giants begin their season in Dallas four weeks from today, Thompson will be the second rookie in as many years to start at free safety. Last year, it was second-round selection Landon Collins, who started all 16 games. Collins is now the strong safety.

Aug 14 The Giants return to practice on Sunday for what should be a tough week of practice. Temperatures are expected to top 90 degrees all week and coach Ben McAdoo is a bit ornery after the team had six fumbles (two lost) and two interceptions in Friday's 27-10 loss to the Dolphins in the preseason opener.

As promised, Victor Cruz's absence won't be a long one. The Giants wide receiver is expected to return to practice on Sunday after being sidelined since Tuesday with tightness in his groin.
Not all injury news is as good. At least not yet. First-round pick Eli Apple, who left Friday's game with what the Giants called at the time a lower left leg strain, underwent an MRI on Saturday to further evaluate his condition. He is unlikely to practice on Sunday.

Ben McAdoo likes the Giants' depth at several positions, or at least the encouraging potential for options at wide receiver, running back, tight end and even on the defensive line, at linebacker and in what he called an "interesting" secondary. The drop off from McAdoo's first-team offensive line to his second unit in pass protection Friday night was jarring, however, in a 27-10 preseason opening loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Bill Parcells won his first preseason game as Giants head coach. Tom Coughlin won his first preseason game as Giants head coach. Ben McAdoo McAdidn't. It means nothing, of course, because Parcells went 3-12-1 in his rookie 1983 season and Coughlin went 5-11 with Kurt Warner and a rookie named Eli Manning.

Giants' Owa Odighizuwa opens up another path to QB. When the Giants flashed their pass rush on Friday night against the Dolphins, it came from expected sources. But the other piece of the pass rush was a bit more unexpected.
Odighizuwa came off the bench to provide three solo tackles, two sacks and three quarterback hits, putting on display the versatility the Giants envisioned for him when they took him out of UCLA in the third round of the 2015 draft.

Aug 12 Giants vs. Dolphins: 10 things to watch for. Friday night will be the first time Ben McAdoo takes the sideline as head coach of the New York Football Giants. Handed the reins in January, the former offensive coordinator has worked tirelessly since then to build the team in his image: sound, smart, tough, committed to discipline and poise. Now it's time to put it to the test.

It is imperative that Ryan Nassib continues to show Giants management that they count on him if the worst case arises. That makes the play of the seldom-used, fourth-year backup in Friday night's preseason opener against the Miami Dolphins as significant as anything that will happen at MetLife Stadium.
If history holds for 2016, quarterback Ryan Nassib won't have much of anything to show at the end of his fourth year with the Giants, the final one on his rookie deal. That's why these next four games are so significant for him. That's why this is his contract preseason.

Aug 11 The team resumed training camp on Wednesday at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center for the final practice before Friday's preseason opener against Miami.
Despite the overcast skies, the Giants managed to get their practice in, even if at times the rain came down heavy enough to send people scrambling for cover. It's all good though actually, as current weather forecasts are calling for rain Friday night when the Giants host Miami in their preseason opener.

Victor Cruz thinks he could have prevented Odell Beckham Jr.'s meltdown against Josh Norman last year -- if only he had been there.
The Giants had their last full practice before their preseason opener on Wednesday -- Cruz was a non-participant -- and won't practice again until Sunday.
As Victor Cruz wages his uphill comeback battle, it is Beckham whom the young wide receivers in the room look to as a mentor. He can teach them the invaluable lessons he has learned the hard way about never letting a cornerback bait you into self-destructive behavior that hurts the team.
As Beckham enters only his third NFL season, he is taking on a new role for the Giants. Not only is he a superstar receiver, but a mentor. A teacher. A professor whose lessons are heard on both sides of the line of scrimmage.

Friday night is the preseason opener for the Giants, against the Dolphins at MetLife Stadium. Ryan Nassib will be warming up in the bullpen, knowing he will replace the starter, just like every other summer since 2013.
That's how it's been since Nassib arrived as a fourth-round draft choice in 2013; he plays in the preseason (when in the last two years he threw 177 passes to Manning's 79) before moving to the sideline when the games count in the standings.
