Here are a few notes of interest for New York Giants' fans.
- 'Shutdown Corner' has some belated -- and hilarious -- thoughts on Tuesday's Manning Day celebration in Mississippi. All I can say is it sure must be tough to go through life as a Manning.
- Joe Jurevicius is convinced his career is not over despite his release Wednesday by the Cleveland Browns. The ex-Giant was always one of my favorite players, and I hope he is right. The 11-year veteran missed 2008 with a knee injury that ended up requiring a half-dozen operations after he got a staph infection.
- St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo is thrilled with the recent signing of former Giant James Butler. Rightly or wrongly, I know a lot of Giants fans are happy Spags' Rams signed him, too.
- Peter King thinks the Eagles will outbid the Giants for Anquan Boldin. Hat tip to ESPN's Matt Mosley for the find.
Jim Fassel thinks coaching in the new UFL will be "awesome." I would think Fassel would find any coaching job awesome at this point.
