Here is a question for you to ponder as the Giants get ready to return to the field. What will it take for you to consider the 2017 season a good one for the Giants? Vote in the poll below. I’m going to work off the belief that almost everyone would consider a losing season to be a bad year, so that won’t be an option.

Dwayne Harris: Cowboys 'look better than' Giants - NFL.com

Kick returner/wide receiver Dwayne Harris has cast the Giants in the role of underdog against the Dallas Cowboys for the upcoming season. Here’s Harris recently on ‘Good Morning Football:’

"They, on paper, they probably look better than us right now. But we always match up good with them, so we'll see."

Sterling Shepard looks to 'feast' inside with Engram - NFL.com

The Giants’ fan base is excited about the possibilities with the team’s upgraded receiving corps. Apparently, Sterling Shepard is, too:

"I'm very excited a part of that good group of guys," Shepard told Sirius XM NFL Radio on Saturday while hosting a Hyundai Youth Football Camp. "Especially having Odell and Brandon on the outside now is going to help free up the inside for Evan [Engram] and I. That's every wide receiver's dream to have two great guys on the outside that are going to draw a lot of attention. That's what you're getting with those two. We should have a feast in the inside if we prepare good enough."

Shepard looking to improve in these 2 areas - NY Daily News

After catching 65 passes as a rookie, Sterling Shepard thinks he can be better in his second NFL season:

Shepard said his work is focused on addressing two areas he feels he can improve from his rookie season: dropped passes and yards after the catch. He says he dropped only six passes his entire college career at Oklahoma, but last season Shepard dropped six for the Giants: four on 105 targets in the regular season and two on nine targets in the playoff loss in Green Bay.

Shepard delivered as a second-round pick with 65 catches and 683 yards and eight touchdown grabs as a rookie, but he’s his own harshest critic when it comes to raising his game in year two.

“I definitely think (I had) too many dropped balls,” Shepard said. “I came out of college and I had only dropped six balls my whole career, so that was something I felt I definitely needed to hone in on over the offseason. So I’ve been catching a lot of balls, and I also wanted to work on a lot of after-the-catch stuff. I feel like I could have gotten a lot more YAC yardage than what I did, just from the (film) review I did.”

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Giants’ D: ‘A lot has been invested in us’ | Hear & Now

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie understands what is expected of the Giants’ defense:

“Any time you build something like that, you have to go out there and perform, so it puts a lot of pressure on you, knowing that a lot has been invested in you,” Rodgers-Cromartie told Vic Carucci and Antrel Rolle on The Opening Drive. “So you’ve got to have the mindset of just going out there and competing and just winning.

“I never really go in the season with expectations, because I always know there’s going to be highs and lows of the season. But what I do is just go out there and just prepare and play the best of my ability within the system. The expectation, I know, is just go out there and get it done because a lot has been invested in us.
