Afternoon notes: Aaron Ross lives!


For a Wednesday of a bye week, sure seems like some interesting things are happening around our New York Giants today. So, an afternoon notebook.

Various beat reporters are stating that Aaron Ross actually practiced IN PADS with the Giants today. Well, wonders never cease. Oh, and I won't believe it until Tom Coughlin says it or Ernie Palladino posts the video.

The beat reporters have also all mentioned today that the Giants brought in 14 players for tryouts none of whom were signed. Pro Football Talk, of course, has the complete list.

The most interesting name of the bunch? At least for me, it was punter/placekicker Tim Masthay, from the University of Kentucky. Obviously, both Jeff Feagles and Lawrence Tynes have had their moments this season, so that was interesting.

Many of you wish Steve Spagnuolo was still making the Giants defensive calls. I know I do. But maybe this will make you feel better. Spags apparently still believes Bill Sheridan can get the Giants defense turned around.

"I absolutely think he will," Spags said. "Not 30 min ago I e-mailed Bill just to tell him. I had an opportunity to watch that game against San Diego. It’s a shame they lost it at the end. They did all the right things at the end, but Philip Rivers had a great drive.

"But they’ll be fine. There are players in that locker room that know how to win. They know what they have to do. They’ll dust themselves off. When all is said and done, they’ll be right there."
