As everyone knows, the NY Giants have stockpiled a bunch of young, talented-but-inexperienced wide receivers. Since Plax and Amani were released, we have watched the WR competition with great interest. It's hard to predict which WR will step up and make the biggest plays from week-to-week. Manningham looked great, but that was his 1st NFL TD. Hopefully he can contribute consistently from week to week. I think Hakeem Nicks is going to be the starter by years end (I'd guess by the week after the bye), but he is out for the next several weeks.
The Giants other rookie WR, 3rd rounder Ramses Barden will be activated this week, and apparently see some game action.
I'm not sure how much action Barden will get, but I look forward to his debut. I think Moss might get more of Nick's playing time, but I think Barden will be in on "green zone" packages. We will see if the Cowboys try to single cover him inside the 10 yard line. With Jacobs in the backfield, the Cowboys could be challenged by some physical mis-matches.
Coughlin indicated WR Ramses Barden will step in for injured Hakeem Nicks (foot) . . .
Let's hear your NY Giants WR predictions for this week. Maybe we can start some sort of informal pool? I think we have a lot of wildcards at WR, which could lead to some unpredictable results. What do you guys think? What surprises will we see in the passing game this week?
Which NY Giants receiver (or TE) will have the biggest game Sunday night in Dallas?
