Good morning, New York Giants fans! Here are your Wednesday morning headlines
Yours truly wrote about this on Monday, saying Pierre-Paul "is heading for a huge pay day. The Giants would be foolish if that pay day doesn't come from them."
'Kudos & Wet Willies' is often imitated, never duplicated. Pat Traina does her best here.
NJ.com's Jordan Ranaan compiles the complete list of players the Giants worked out on Tuesday. Here it is:
QB Terrell Pryor; WR Jon Baldwin; RB Felix Jones; RB Alex Green; RB Dion Lewis; TE Tony Moeaki; TE Ted Bolser; TE D.J. Williams; G Jack Cornell; G Antoine McClain; K Travis Coons; K Nate Freese; P Robert Malone; P Jacob Dombrowski; LS Tyler Ott
After a $116 offseason spending spree the Giants thought they had a pretty solid foundation.But maybe what they were really looking at was a longer rebuilding project, and they've been fooling themselves into thinking they were close to a Super Bowl all along.
The Giants' ground game has struggled with rookie Andre Williams at the lead back. Runing backs coach Craig Johnson thinks he knows part of the reason:
Giants rookie Andre Williams needs to have more patience as the primary ball carrier.
"I think for all young players, they have a tendency to really get in a hurry, but I think that he is getting more patient as he continues to go," Johnson said. "Sometimes with the young players because you'd rather have them be over-aggressive than not over-aggressive. Again, it's the rhythm and the flow every play. Every back that I know of wants to get with the rhythm and the timing of the linemen. There is a certain learning curve there and that's what he's experiencing."
Rookie defensive tackle Jay Bromley is blogging occasionally for Giants.com. Here is part of his latest entry:
I've suited up just the one time this season, and that's something my teammate Johnathan Hankins also kind of went through as a rookie tackle last year. We definitely talk about that, especially when I first started not playing. He and everybody around here told me, they were like, "Man, listen, you're going to have your opportunity; you've just got to be prepared and keep working hard." And that's what I have been doing. Watching Hankins go out there and make plays does nothing but motivate me. In my head, I'm saying I want to get better, and I can envision nothing more than me and him both being young and being two of the best defensive tackles in the game, period, and working hard in the future. So we just want to keep that going.
