For the second year in a row, Chris Canty will be trying to defend a Super Bowl title. Last year it was with the Giants and the one he earned. This year it will be with the Ravens and one he wasn’t around for. But he has some advice for his new teammates based off what he learned with the 2012 Giants.
“That Super Bowl hangover deal is real, I’ll start by saying that,” Canty said last night...Read more »
The last time we heard from Giants running back coach Jerald Ingram on David Wilson, he was basically skewering the rookie as not ready to play in the NFL. That was when he had the luxury of doing so because Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown were handling most of the duties.
This year, though, Bradshaw is no longer with the team and Brown is coming off a broken bone in his leg. The Giants will...Read more »
Could a reunion between the Giants and Brandon Jacobs really happen?
“I know Brandon is hoping and praying and dying to be back a Giant,” running backs coach Jerald Ingram said last night at the ESPN The Magazine Pre-Draft party in Manhattan. “Things didn’t work out the way he wanted to a year ago. He’s an emotional guy, he wants to be on the field, he wants to do those kinds of things, wants...Read more »
If the Giants are going into their draft with a pure “best player available” mentality, it will be interesting to see how many rounds pass by before they take a stab at Tyrann Mathieu. The former LSU cornerback with well-documented off-the-field issues including a long list of failed drug tests in college may be one of the most talented prospects in this year’s pool of players. But due to those...Read more »
Yesterday Victor Cruz was a restricted free agent. Today he’s just restricted.
The deadline for any of the other 31 teams in the NFL to make an offer for Cruz came and went at midnight last night without so much as a salsa, meaning that the full rights to sign the wide receiver for the 2013 season revert back to the Giants. Cruz’ options – at least the sane, sensible options – are reduced...Read more »

The man who oversaw Eli Manning’s first throws of 2013 is expecting big things from the rest of them.
David Cutliffe, Manning’s former coach at Ole Miss, watched his protégé pass to Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz and Louis Murphy at Duke University (where he now coaches) last week.
"His arm was tremendous during this round," Cutcliffe told Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio today. "We...Read more »

One of the reasons for Jason Pierre-Paul’s subpar numbers in 2012 when he had just 6.5 sacks – 10 fewer than the previous season – was the regular diet of double teams that he faced. He’ll likely continue to see them this year, too. But while he was able to fight through them enough to have a decent season in run defense and quarterback pressures, the trick for 2013 will be in trying to avoid them.
