Good morning, New York Giants. I guess we begin today venturing back into an odd place we went Thursday -- talking about the sex life of cornerback Prince Amukamara.
Here is what Amukamara said Thursday about Rolle's comment that getting married and losing his virginity was helping the fourth-year cornerback play better.
"It was ... I know Antrel meant no harm towards it. Me and Antrel, we always joke around, not about stuff like that. I don't know what to say. I felt that it was comical. I know I'm going to have a lot of explaining to do to my wife because I know her phone's probably blowing up," Amukamara said. But just out of respect for her, I don't want to comment on what happens in mine and my wife's house.
"To talk about my play, though, I feel like I've prepared great this offseason, physically and mentally. Antrel has actually been helping me a lot, and DRC, so with all those ingredients, I feel like that's why I'm playing like how I'm playing."

It was further evidence in the evolution of Jason Pierre-Paul, who has gone from the spacey wunderkind of the defensive line relying only on his freakish athletic talents to a student of the game and a new leader for the entire unit. Or, as Pierre-Paul puts it: "As you grow older, you figure [stuff] out."

New coordinator Ben McAdoo's offensive system has begun to produce points and yards: In their past two games (both wins), the Giants scored a total of 75 points and averaged 434 yards. Eli Manning has stopped making mistakes and throwing picks, and he's started anticipating the open man. Along with the rest of the team, Manning looked much more confident in the Thursday night rout of Washington. The 11th-year pro gives New York a chance to win the NFC East. The defense must tighten up, but the key is the Giants' schedule, which includes games against Jacksonville, Tennessee and St. Louis down the stretch.

"I am playing real good. I don’t feel like I am playing at my best yet, though. There are still things I can improve [like] running blocks, downfield hitting and things like that. But I do feel good. I feel like [I’m] focused and just going out there each and every play, one at a time," said Beatty. "It’s just us coming together, knowing the playbook, owning up to [mistakes] and going out there and performing as one rather than 11 guys as individuals. It was just that mode and process that we try to work through the five preseason games and still building on it."
