Good morning, New York Giants fans! One week to go before the first practice of training camp. With that in mind, here are today's links.

Giants' quarterback Eli Manning is entering his 11th season. Pat Traina asked him about that recently, and received an interesting answer:

Q: You are entering your 11th NFL season this year. Can you reflect a bit on that, especially given all the youth that has come through the doors over the last couple of years?

A: Well, I still feel young, but you understand that young guys are going to come in every year to help the team. Still, when I look around the locker room and guys tell me when their birthdays are and you hear the '90s was when they were born, you kind of realize that you’re a generation ahead of some of these players.

When you start saying movie and television quotes and they have no idea what you’re talking about because they haven’t seen any of the movies or TV shows, that’s a little weird. But you still have a number of guys that have been there just as long as I have.

I enjoy the younger players because I think being around them keeps you young and keeps you fresh. I enjoy getting to know them, re-teach things and be a kind of player and coach in helping them get on the same page.

Pro Football Talk has the Giants at No. 18 in their preseason power rankings. Rotoworld's Evan Silva also places the Giants at No. 18.

HBO is apparently going to make a movie based on Giants' legend Frank Gifford.
