Good morning, New York Giants fans! It's a game day, and Big Blue View has you covered from pillar to post for Giants vs. Washington Redskins on our Giants-Redskins Hub Page. TV information, odds, injuries, analysis -- it's all there. Now, let's check your Giants headlines for this morning.

Practice Squad Shuffle

The Giants made a practice squad move on Wednesday, adding wide receiver Juron Criner and terminating the contract of L'Damian Washington, who was signed last week. Criner, 6-foot-3 and 227 pounds, was waived by the Oakland Raiders at the end of the preseason. In two years with the Raiders, he played in 13 games - 12 in 2012 - and caught 19 passes for 183 yards and a touchdown (against New Orleans on Nov. 18, 2012). Criner was a 2012 fifth-round draft choice, the 168th overall selection.

Don't read the papers, don't listen to it. That's the bottom line. Stay positive," Jeter says. "That's the only way you can deal with it. It's tough. It's tough to avoid it because you're constantly asked questions about it. So you know the angle, you know what's being written. But you've got to stay positive, regardless."

Quarterbacks come and go, but NY Giants' Eli Manning stands alone in NFC East  - NY Daily News

Maybe the 24-year-old Kirk Cousins is the future of the NFC East. Maybe it’s the 25-year-old Nick Foles, or the 24-year-old Robert Griffin, or maybe even Tony Romo, 34, will be the next to make a real run at a ring. At this point, would anybody really be surprised if Manning outlasted them all?

Numbers beginning to look super but NY Giants QB Eli Manning focuses on complete picture   - NY Daily News
Eli Manning doesn’t worry about the numbers, and he doesn’t chart the percentages. He’s never cared about his touchdown-to-interception ratio, or his QB rating, or any of the stats that make fantasy football go. So all that talk of a 70% completion percentage, the brainchild of QB coach Danny Langsdorf back in training camp? It never mattered to Manning. "I don’t think you go into a game saying, ‘I have to worry about hitting 70 percent,’ " he said Tuesday. "You worry about each play, going through your reads, your progression, throwing the ball accurately and hopefully moving the ball and doing your job well enough to win the game."
