Land of the Giants: Goff has much to prove

Giants_notebook_468_medium

Here are a few stories of interest to Giants fans today.

"I’ve been itching just to be out there on the field again," he said. "Being out there running plays, executing the defense, learning and getting better. And doing what I can to put myself in a position to contribute as many ways as possible."

Goff said it was difficult dealing with his injuries, especially since he'd never experienced anything like the three that dogged him last season and ultimately landed him on injured reserve by late December.

"I went through all of college with no injuries, no nothing," he said. "Didn’t miss a game, didn’t miss a practice, didn’t miss a snap in practice. Really it just felt like it was bad luck, one thing after another.

We have speculated so much throughout the off-season about the eventual need to replace Antonio Pierce. I would love to see Goff stay healthy and show whether or not he can be that guy.

"I've been here for seven years now. I know my way round. I know how things are run here, I know what it takes to be a professional and get it done each and every Sunday," Diehl said. "I think that's a comfort to a guy being a rookie coming into a whole new situation that he has a veteran that he can come up to me and say 'Hey, what do you think about this?' Just bounce things off of me."

The connection? Both players have the same agent.
