Good morning, New York Giants' fans. It is, of course, a happy Friday morning after a 36-7 stomping of the Carolina Panthers. Here are some post-game notes and reactions.

Are the Giants still updating their depth chart each week, as required by NFL rule? And if so, what’s the point?
They lost Brandon Jacobs out of their backfield in the offseason and starter Ahmad Bradshaw to injury last week, so they simply turned their run game over to Andre Brown, a player cut eight times by five different teams in his career. All Brown did Thursday night in the Giants’ 36-7 whitewash of Carolina was rush for 113 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries.
New York also said farewell to wide receiver Mario Manningham over the summer and had to roll without the services of injured starter Hakeem Nicks in Carolina. Big deal. Who needs those guys when you have Ramses Barden, he of the 16 career catches? Not the Giants, apparently. Barden hauled in nine passes for 138 yards Thursday, matching and surpassing, respectively, his totals for the entire 2011 season.
