New York Giants News And Notes: Mini-Camp Begins Today

Good morning, New York Giants fans. Just a couple stories of interest for you today as the Giants begin their mandatory mini-camp.

Still-hungry Giants ready to get back to work | New York Daily News
The parades, the parties, the ring, the ceremony at the White House. It was all more than Antrel Rolle could’ve ever imagined. He said he’s been "loving every second" of being a defending Super Bowl champion.

So much that he can’t wait to do it again.

"Absolutely," Rolle said after touring the White House last week. "They say when you give a shark a little bit of blood he’s going to keep hunting. That’s the way I look at it."

The hunt begins again on Tuesday morning when the defending champion Giants gather for the first time as a full team for the start of their three-day, mandatory mini-camp at the Meadowlands. They’ve been holding voluntary workouts and practices for months, but this will be the first time the whole 2012 team is on the field.

Giants' David Diehl apologizes for DWI arrest |
David Diehl figures to address reporters at some point over the next three days during the team's minicamp, but the Giants' offensive tackle didn't wait that long to offer an apology for his arrest on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol.

"I've worked hard during my career to set a positive example, and (Sunday) I fell far short of this standard," Diehl wrote on his Twitter account minutes ago. "I apologize to my family, my fans, my teammates, the New York Giants, and the NFL. ... I made a poor decision that I sincerely regret, and, as always, take full responsibility for my actions."

Two current coaches resemble Vince Lombardi -
Tom Coughlin: It's not just the ties to the New York Giants, the team with which Lombardi initially emerged as an offensive coordinator. Coughlin is that rare coach who can be known as a disciplinarian yet inspire devotion from players. He doesn't let the players get too close, but they all want to please him. It doesn't hurt that he loves the power running game.
