New York Giants Notes: Sadly, C.C. Does Have A Point

Yes, we all agree that C.C. Brown should shut his mouth and worry about actually figuring out how to play safety in the NFL. And I admittedly continue to enjoy blasting him at every opportunity.

Universally, though, there is the sense that there is some truth behind what Brown said to the Detroit Free Press about New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.

Beat writers Ralph Vacchiano, Mike Garafolo and Ernie Palladino all acknowledged as much this morning.Coach Tom Coughlin referenced it the other day, saying "we've got to stop this," meaning the propensity for turnovers.

With eight interceptions and four fumbles, Manning does lead the league in turnovers. And he has made way too many questionable decisions for a quarterback with his experience and resume. Getting that under control will be one of the keys for the Giants going forward.

Pro Bowl guard Chris Snee gets to match up with Detroit rookie sensation Ndamukong Suh Sunday. He sounded insulted, and justifiably so, when asked if the matchup provided him any extra motivation.

"No, I’m not ‘inspired’ by the privilege to play against the No. 2 overall pick,’’ Snee said. "I’m a competitor and I want to go against the best guys every week. I have to go against Suh so I’m excited for the opportunity.’

"I’ll put more preparation probably than any opponent he’s ever faced into his individual technique and pass-rush moves,’’ Snee said. "I’ll know every snap that he’s taken.’’

Center Shaun O'Hara and linebacker Keith Bulluck might return to the lineup Sunday.
