Some analysts think the New York Giants are Super Bowl contenders. Landon Collins and Dak Prescott are spending their pre-training camp time arguing about whether the Dallas Cowboys or Giants are the best team in the NFC East. There there’s this:

USA Today thinks the Giants have the third-best roster in the NFC East, behind both the Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. Here is what USA Today’s Nate Davis said about the Giants:

This team could be a microcosm of QB Eli Manning — wildly uneven. The secondary, D-line and receivers are all elite or at least borderline. But the linebackers, special teams and running back situations leave this team looking quite lopsided.

Colin Kaepernick ex-teammate questions Geno Smith, Fitzpatrick |

Denver linebacker Brandon Marshall (yes, the other Brandon Marshall) can’t believe Geno Smith has a job in the NFL and Colin Kaepernick does not:

I’m like, if Kaep’s not good, then what are these guys? These guys are getting signed. You know, the Matt Barkleys and all that stuff. So that’s very shocking to me.”
