No doubt in my mind, guy is a future HoF-er if he doesn't get injured.

What a pick by JR. In Reese we Trust!

It's true. Just insane.

If any pick EVER made me realize I shouldn't doubt the Giants, it's JPP.

Seriously. Reese is a genius. We're spoiled with how well run out franchise is.

Once he actually gains some knowledge of the sport, he's going to be a monster.

I go to USF and I met JPP during my orientation outside of the subway at Cooper Hall a couple of years ago. Guy is a beast

Some recent article was talking about how he's basically becoming a student of the game. He's always asking question. He's ALREADY a monster...think of what happens when he masters the mental side of the game.

Love JPP.

Thought it would be a good time to get this going back up. Training camps starting up and preseason only a couple weeks away. Position battles and rookies looking to make impacts all over the place. Oh, and that Tim Tebow guy is here and wants to play QB. That's usually a pretty good discussion starter.

Stephen Hill made a big impression on Day One of Jets camp. Caught a 40 yard deep ball over Revis. Looking forward to seeing how he progresses during the season.

Love how even after winning the damn Super Bowl the Giants continue to get less media attention than Tebow and the Jets, Rodgers and the Pack, or Brady and the Pats.

It's cool. Just gotta repeat to show them all what's what.

The media always likes the freak shows. Even better when the freak show is a train wreck. It's no wonder that the freak show on a train wreck Jets get more attention.

Hoping Hill starts from day 1, who cares about the growing pains, get the guy on the field, and send him deep.

I definitely think that's the plan, and I'm excited.

Another season that I believe (in July) that we will make the playoffs. By the end of September, that dream will have long since been murdered.

BILLieve. 10-6.

The Giants are a boring team. They are the most boring team in the NFC East with RG3 in Washington, they have something worth while reporting from there. It's not a bad thing to be boring. Never follow the national media when it comes to football. They follow the stories that get the casual person riled up and interested. That's why Tebow, Vick and the Eagles, Peyton and the Broncos, and Dallas and Jerry Jones get more attention.

In today's age, find a website that you can read about your team. Go on twitter and get reports from Giants beat reporters. The national media isn't a good idea for training camp and things like that. It's their job to get the most views and honestly, besides the Giants being the Champs, there isn't much there. You'd rather be like New England anyway. They get almost no media attention until they get to the playoffs are play a big game in the season.

Let the other teams get the attention now and hope that come January the Giants are the one's still playing and having their moment in the sun.

its been like that for a while now. eli gets no media attention because hes just not an interesting story. which i could not care less about. 2 time superbowl mvp in 5 years is all i care i about. giants fans love em and thats all that matters.

the media is probably praying that the jets qb situation turns into a disaster just so they can talk about it even more than they are now. i hate the jets but i hope sanchez has a good year and tebow doesnt even take a snap so they will shut up already.

That's exactly how I like it. Under the rader & let our Super Bowl Championship rings speak for us.

Hopefully it's not torn, and it's just a setback....trying to stay as optimistic as I can.

What a ****ing joke if he's injured. I wish we could just go one season without injuries.

****ing ****.

I'm comfortable with CWeb and Prince, but T2 makes that go from a good group with meh depth to a great group with better depth.

Also sucks for Terrel, he was ready for a big breakout year and now might be ****ed two years in a row.

Damnit.

Well, we still have three starting caliber CBs in CWeb, Prince, and Tryon. It's even worse, though, because Witherspoon tore his ACL again. I really liked him before.

True, but T2 in the slot with Prince and CWeb on the outside is dirty. Tryon's not bad but I was hoping to see that group lock it down this year.

And now, yeah, we go from having Tryon as a great depth guy to having who? Coe I think? Hosley's also been getting beat up in camp so he's not gonna help this year.

edit- Forgot about Molden...but he's probably not too good if the Pats and their awful defense thought he was part of the problem.

Oh for sure. Our depth is going to suck. Willing to bet we pick someone up who gets cut like we did with Tryon. Tryon is a great slot CB.
