Good morning, New York Giants fans! Let's get your day started with a look at what stories are making headlines for the Giants on this Tuesday morning. If you haven't done so already, vote in our Andre Brown poll.

On Monday we wondered if Alex Boone, holding starting guard for the San Francisco 49ers, could be a Giants trade target. It appears that the Giants might be interested, but that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the most serious suitor for Boone.

"Fun has always been in football for me. It never left. Being injured, nobody wants to be injured. It comes with the game; you never know when you're going to be injured. You have to fight through it. You go out there and play. If you can't, you can't. ... I'm back now, so the only thing that can stop me from being me is me ... from being a better player."

-- Jason Pierre-Paul

"You know last year was not very good and our football team was not very good. So this year we are trying like heck to be able to run the ball and give ourselves some balance, do some things with play-action. Hopefully we will be able to continue to do that. There were some things that were good about it the other night. The long run was obviously the one statistical run, but we are going to stay with it. We had 35 runs in the first game, 31 runs the other night, so we would like to be able to stay with it."

-- Tom Coughlin on running the football
