The New York Giants report for 2013 training camp Friday at the newly-named Quest Diagnostics Training Center. Here is your Big Blue View training camp primer, including the schedule, fan information and links to much of what we have written leading up to camp.
The Giants come off a 9-7 season during which they missed the playoffs. With the Super Bowl being held at MetLife Stadium in February, the first cold-weather outdoor Super Bowl, the heat is on the Giants to make a run at becoming the first team to get to -- and win -- the Super Bowl in their home stadium. Can they do it? We begin finding out when practice opens Saturday afternoon.
