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.

Aug 20 Giants Practice Reports: ESPN | | Giants.comBBIInsideFootballVideo
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.

Aug 16 The Giants' secondary has been saying the right things this preseason. On Saturday night, its members will see if they play the right things. The revamped unit will face its biggest test of the preseason against Andrew Luck and the Colts in Indianapolis. After facing E.J. Manuel and Ben Roethlisberger for one series each, the Giants figure to get at least a quarter of work against this starting quarterback and his playmaking receivers.

For the last few months, the talk has been fast and furious from Jason Pierre-Paul. The Giants' boisterous defensive end has proclaimed that he is "110%" healthy, that he is headed for an absolutely "crazy" year and that all those who doubted his greatness are about to be "shut up." And now, it's time to prove it. On Saturday night in Indianapolis.

The Giants, who had a mere 34 sacks last season, are trying to replace longtime defensive end Justin Tuck, who had 11 of them and is now with the Raiders. Ayers is among the candidates to be that replacement, but so is longtime Giants defensive lineman Mathias Kiwanuka, who ranks first on the depth chart right now at left defensive end and believes it's his time to be the man opposite right defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul.

Will this be the game the Giants finally open up the offense? Everyone is aching for the Giants to throw the ball down the field. Their starting offense has been inept at doing so in the first two preseason games and all the talk this week is about it being time for Eli Manning to get his right arm limbered up for some deep passes.

Look for Eli Manning and most of the starters to play well into the second quarter, and to try to get Victor Cruz more involved. The running back situation looks to be in pretty good hands. Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams should form a solid one-two punch. At fullback, Henry Hynoski seems to have the early edge over John Conner, who might not play due to concussion protocols resulting from the big hit he delivered last week.

In the Giants' last preseason game, the starting offense picked up one first down. In two preseason games, Eli Manning has completed six passes for 43 yards. The best receiver, Victor Cruz, does not have a catch. No starting wide receiver has more than one reception. Last year's offense was 28th in the NFL, which is why the team revamped its system, changed coordinators and ushered in six new starters. This is the new-look Giants offense?

There was a buzz in training camp that Jacquian Williams is on the verge of having a breakout season. Beason praised the youngish linebackers on the roster and used the word "especially'' to express his belief in Williams. Beason, once he returns from the foot injury that kept him out of camp and will keep him sidelined for Saturday night's preseason game against the Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium, is a proven commodity.

Rueben Randle looked up the other day during training camp practice and spotted on the sideline what he admits was an NFL receiver's all-time snapshot. He saw Plaxico Burress talking with David Tyree talking with Mario Manningham, a three-way conversation that got Randle dreaming.

A typical preseason builds to the third game, where starters will typically get an entire half of football; their best dress rehearsal before Week 1. But because the Giants are on a different scale with the added Hall of Fame game, this year's team will have to wait until Week 4.

Eli Manning might still be the prize pupil, but he's learning the ways of Ben McAdoo's West Coast offense just like everyone else. In some cases, those around Manning are more comfortable with the change than he is.
The party line, from Tom Coughlin and from Eli Manning, is the changes have re-energized them. But never before has Coughlin been asked to integrate as many as a dozen free agents, while counting on as many as four second-year players to make an impact.

As the Giants wrapped up training camp Thursday, two days before their third preseason game, Victor Cruz proudly let it be known that the new offensive playbook has been fully installed. Now the Giants have to figure out how to use it.
Key to Giants' offensive line is if Will Beatty can return to the player he used to be For Beatty to really be back, he needs to turn the clock all the way back to 2012.

A new name in Giants tight end mix: fullback Henry Hynoski. Tom Coughlin mentioned that Hynoski can at times be considered a running back, though he's only carried the ball five times in his NFL career. Hynoski also has added some responsibilities at tight end this summer and hopes the increased versatility helps him become a more desirable player.

Rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham caught a pass from quarterback Curtis Painter in live drills on Wednesday and ran into the end zone.

Here are some thoughts from and/or about the three men likely to be the Giants' starting linebackers on Monday, Sept. 8 in Detroit: Jacquian Williams, Devon Kennard, Jameel McClain.

There are only 11 players on the New York Giants' current roster who played for them in Super Bowl XLVI, which is a bit startling considering the game was only 30 months ago.

Ben McAdoo wants a player he doesn't have to sub out during no huddle situations. He needs a tight end that plays wide receiver, traditional tight end and fullback so that he can play fast. So far, Larry Donnell is the closest thing he's seen to that player.

Ben McAdoo's "we're-not-in-Green-Bay-anymore" moment came the first time he left the New York Giants' facility at rush hour, turned his car on to Route 3 and stared at four stopped lanes of westbound traffic coming out of Manhattan. "Lot more people here," the Giants' first-year offensive coordinator said Tuesday.
Ben McAdoo is a busy man. He's installing a new offense, forming opinions on personnel, and preparing himself for his first season as an NFL play-caller. But hanging over his head all summer has been a deadline that is fast approaching. In less than four weeks, the Giants open their regular season against the Lions and McAdoo, the Giants' offensive coordinator, wants the system to be at 100 percent of its capability by then.
Ben McAdoo feels like he's still on pace with the Giants offense despite the fact that his passing game hasn't gotten very far off the ground. On Saturday against the Steelers, Eli Manning dropped back three times but did not complete a pass. He was sacked once. The week before against Buffalo, the first-team offense did not complete a pass of more than 10 yards.

Giants first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. still hasn't completed a full practice at training camp. He's making progress, but was limited again Tuesday by a hamstring problem aggravated during the first practice of the summer.
Odell Beckham Jr. has only taken a few snaps with the Giants' offense, but that hasn't stopped the rookie receiver from dreaming big. "[The offense] has potential to be, if not the best, one of the best in the league," Beckham said at the team's training facility on Tuesday.

Former Giants
Plaxico Burress made a rare guest appearance at Giants practice today. It is believed to be Burress' first visit to the facility since a meeting he had with the team following the end of his prison sentence back in 2011, one that helped clear the air before Burress signed with the neighboring Jets.

Aug 12 Bet on Eli Manning in weak NFC East. I would take Manning over Nick Foles, Tony Romo or Robert Griffin III, who have combined for one playoff victory, one fewer than Manning's two Super Bowl rings. And because this is a quarterback league now more than ever, I think Manning gives the Giants a very good chance to win the NFC East.

There's Eli Manning, who threw 27 interceptions in the worst season of his career, and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, who struggled through back and shoulder problems and recorded just two sacks in the 11 games he played. They are the biggest keys to potential success on each side of the ball for the Giants, and each has a fresh energy in this camp.

With every snap Jason Pierre-Paul takes this preseason, every play he makes in training camp and every smile he flashes on the field, there is a phrase that runs through the minds of all associated with the Giants.

It was just a glimpse, but Odell Beckham Jr. finally gave the Giants reason to be excited. Sidelined with a hamstring injury since the first day of training camp, the first-round pick appeared on the field for individual drills during Monday's practice, catching passes on undefended routes.
Odell Beckham Jr. participated in only a few reps in a minimal number of drills Monday, but it was enough to show the Giants what they have been missing. During one of those routes, a pass from Eli Manning seemed to be overthrown, but Beckham sprinted, caught up to it and made a one-handed grab.

Victor Cruz isn't concerned about being a non-factor in the Giants' offense through two preseason games. But that doesn't mean he wouldn't mind a pass or two coming his way. "I would love some," he said with a big smile Monday.
To begin their last week of training camp open to the public, the Giants practiced in only shoulder pads in front of the fans that came to watch. Wide receivers Victor Cruz and Jerrel Jernigan did not practice today. Jernigan has a knee injury, but is expected to be back playing tomorrow.

The Giants meet the Colts in their third preseason game on Saturday, which means seeing former offensive linchpins Ahmad Bradshaw and Hakeem Nicks. It means Mario Manningham seeing the sideline he tight-roped to win a championship.

Corey Washington wowed again. The 6-4, 214-pound receiver has used his size to score late, go-ahead touchdowns in back-to-back preseason games for the Giants. Well, he plays like he practices.

Curtis Painter was first off the bench just two days after leading the Giants downfield on a game-winning drive in their preseason win over the Steelers. On one hand, Tom Coughlin made it seem like a planned switch even though Ryan Nassib hasn't taken any third-string reps all summer. Could there be some trouble brewing for the 2013 fourth-round pick?

There were times last year when it looked like Hakeem Nicks had become a shell of the No. 1 receiver he used to be. It was hard to tell if he was hurt, or just not trying. Whatever it was, he looked off. It turns out, his now-former Giants teammates could see that too.
Victor Cruz believes all the criticism Hakeem Nicks received last season took a "toll" on his former teammate. Many critics felt Nicks wasn't giving his all in order to protect himself from injury with free agency looming.

Stadium News
Your comments: users critical of MetLife Stadium. Typically, fans are very protective of anything and everything to do with their teams, stadiums and franchise pride. For Giants and Jets supporters, MetLife Stadium doesn't bring about that kind of emotion.

Aug 11 The Giants' first-team offense didn't show enough Saturday night in the preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but there's a chance this week that it gets reinforcements.
Paging Odell Beckham Jr. Please exit the trainer's room and report immediately to the practice field at your earliest possible convenience, sooner rather than later, even if it has gotten late early.

The Giants drafted Odell Beckham Jr. to play football. On Monday he'll be able to. Beckham's return coincides with the installation of the next phase of the Giants offense, which will feature more down-the-field opportunities.
The Giants offense may be operating at a quicker pace than it did under former coordinator Kevin Gilbride, but it's not enough for coach Tom Coughlin's liking.

Giants' offense getting better, they promise. There's no sugarcoating the fact that the New York Giants' offense looks lousy right now.
While Eli Manning stood on the sideline listening to the play calls being relayed to his backup Ryan Nassib, his offensive line remained on the field. They still had more work left to do.

Tom Coughlin said there was "obviously" an issue on Saturday. "We obviously have some issues with the signal system from the quarterback to the receiver," he said.
The unit had one memorable play, Rashad Jennings' 73-yard touchdown run on the second possession. Jennings took a handoff from Eli Manning, stepped through a hole in the line and was never touched.

NFL officials have made it a point of emphasis this season to reduce contact between defensive backs and receivers 5 yards beyond the line of scrimmage.
In the first two preseason games, the Giants have been flagged 10 times for defensive holding or illegal contact - five in each game.
