July 2017


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants are ready to ease up on quarterback Eli Manning as he enters his 14th professional season. He may even be on a football "pitch count" with his throws limited as the summer and season progress. It seems almost sacrosanct for an ironman quarterback who has never missed a start. But it seems likely to be Manning's 2017 reality. "You can call it a pitch count. You can frame it like that, you can frame it however you like," general manager Jerry Reese said Thursday, some 24 hours before the Giants' first practice of training camp. "That's a good way to frame it if you like." Manning, 36, is coming off a sub-par season where he was constantly under pressure.

Most players arrive at training camp the same way, in whatever overpriced status symbol car they have. Reggie Wayne once showed up to Indianapolis Colts camp in a helicopter. Eli Apple was dropped off at his rookie training camp with the New York Giants by his mom.

Throughout the history of the NFL, coaches have used an assortment of ways to motivate players. New York Giants coach Ben McAdoo may have found a new method heading into his second season. When asked what the story had to do with football, Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon said it was meant to show the older players that they can regain the form of their younger days.

Rejoice! Many NFL training camps are underway, the rest are about to begin. Hope for each team’s fanbase is never higher than it will be right now. In a league where parity rules, almost everyone not wearing New York Jets green or Cleveland Browns orange

New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took a quick trip to Amarillo, Texas on Saturday to visit Jayro Ponce, a nine-year-old boy battling Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor. Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor is a rare childhood tumor that commonly starts in the kidneys but can also occur in other soft tissues or in the brain.There are about 20 to 25 new cases of Malignant Rhabdoid Tumor diagnosed each year in the United States, according to the Dana Farber Cancer Institute. Beckham received a tweet on July 18 from Danny Richburg, father of Giants center Weston Richburg, who shared a post forom a local radio personality's plead to help Ponce meet his favorite player.

SAN FRANCISCO – Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters something interesting during his afternoon session on Friday: He goes back to his office after every game and reviews each pitch and play in a condensed version prepared by the team’s video analysts. Even in this lost season, Bochy hasn’t shirked those duties. After Friday’s unspeakably ugly 12-9, 11-inning loss to the San Diego Padres, can we recommend that he open a bottle of cabernet and listen to some Waylon Jennings, instead? Try as the Padres might to tank this season, they keep underestimating the Giants’ knack for futility. Only a masochist would wish to review the absurd and slow-paced theater that played out Friday night – even

The Giants got back to the playoffs last season and their defensive turnaround was the biggest reason for their return. All of those players are back after Pierre-Paul signed a new deal with the team this offseason and Collins may be poised for another move up the ladder of best safeties in the league, which provides a strong foundation for the Giants’ chances of making it two postseason appearances in a row. In order to remedy that, the team released Victor Cruz and signed Brandon Marshall after the veteran was dismissed by the Jets.

WAYNE, N.J. -- The New York Giants- Dallas Cowboys?rivalry is heating up before training camps even open. Giants safety Landon Collins responded confidently Friday at his Citi ProCamp about his team's chances after Dak Prescott said last week that the Cowboys would win the division. "I commented right underneath his picture. I said, 'I highly doubt that.' They do not control the [NFC] East. It's over with. We're going to have a run for it. I mean, they're not going to win, I can tell you that much. We're definitely going to take over." The Cowboys (13-3) won the division last season but lost both matchups with the Giants. Prescott threw one touchdown pass in the two games. If history has anything
