Yes, I made it out to training camp for a while last night, until the torrential downpour that hit halfway through practice sent me running for my car. As you can see, I snapped a few pictures with my digital camera -- including one of the Lombardi Trophy.
It was on display last night, which was also Autograph Night at UAlbany.
Anyway, hope you enjoy the photos. They aren't the best, but I did what I could from up on the hill where I was.
As for camp, I got to watch Jeff Feagles put on an awesome display of directional punting during a punt coverage drill. Going sideline-to-sideline, the Giants veteran punter must have nailed about a dozen kicks in a row that pinned the return man at or near the sidelines. He's the best in the business at what he does.
Nice work from tight ends Kevin Boss and Darcy Johnson during the portion of practice I saw. Boss made a diving catch on a low throw from Eli Manning. A bit later, Johnson absolutely froze rookie safety Kenny Phillips with a stop-and-go move, then blew about 5 yards past him to haul in a long completion from Eli.
Wide receiver Brandon London also made a big play, blowing past cornerback Kevin Dockery for a long reception down the left sideline.
That's all I've got in terms of what I saw on the field. Hopefully, I will get back a couple more times before camp ends. With work, family -- and some golf to play -- who knows, though? But, I will definitely try.
- Giants' new lineman Shane Olivea admits addiction to painkillers.
- Here is Mike Garafolo's evening practice report. He saw a lot more than I did, and I'm sure he got quite a bit wetter.
- For good measure, and to play fair, here is Ralph Vacchiano's evening practice report. Probably means little in the end, but the name Brandon London keeps popping up.
