WILL BEATTY INJURY UPDATE: KEVIN GILBRIDE VOICES CONCERN (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/6/16/3089697/will-beatty-injury-update-kevin-gilbride-new-york-giants-sean-locklear-james-brewer)

"New York Giants (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants)
offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride expressed concern about starting left
tackle Will Beatty (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/71290/will-beatty)
when the team concludes its mandatory mini-camp earlier this week.
<div class="entry-body">

did not participate in any of the OTAs or the mini-camp due to a back injury
suffered during offseason training. There is apparently some concern over
whether or not Beatty will be ready when training camp begins July 27 at the
University at Albany.</p>
<p class="extend-divide"><a name="storyjump"></a>http://cdn1.sbnation.com/images/blog/star-divide.v5e9d7f1.jpg</p>

"We need him. He has got to be there. We have lost to what amounts to three
starters in the last two years on the offensive line. You can't keep doing that
and not be effective," Gilbride said (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/6/15/3088988/kevin-gilbride-new-york-giants-press-conference-06-14-12-reben-randle-david-wilson). "If you lose him that means four starters in
the offensive line. Then it doesn't matter how good your quarterback is. It
doesn't matter how good your receivers are. It doesn't matter the explosiveness.
Those guys enable our skill guys to play. So, yeah, I'll be very concerned if he
can't play."</p>

Beatty started 10 games in 2011 before missing the remainder of the season
with a detached retina.</p>

"We have Sean Locklear (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/2318/sean-locklear)
and hopefully he was going to be a backup for us. We were hoping James Brewer (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/130992/james-brewer)
is going to come. Those guys still have to come into play. But we are thin. We
are not thin numerically but with experienced, proven guys that you can say,
'Hey, we feel real good about,' " said Gilbride.</p>

"You can't lose that many guys in one spot - especially that spot - and not
be concerned. Somebody has to step up. Lose Will Beatty - that would be the
fourth starter in the last two years. That is too many; that's too
many."</p></div>NY GIANTS' NEWS AND NOTES: SATURDAY MORNING EDITION (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/6/16/3090034/new-york-giants-news-david-wilson-ahmad-bradshaw-eli-manning-rocky-bernard)

As mentioned
above, the Giants face a daunting task in repeating as Super Bowl champions.
Having a gifted quarterback in Eli Manning eases some of the pressure, not to
mention an outstanding head coach in Tom Coughlin and that game-changing
defensive line. Running back <a class="sbn-auto-link" href="http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/players/2224/brandon-jacobs">Brandon

"It'll always bother me," Mike McCarthy told NFL.com on Thursday.
The Packers (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/green-bay-packers) leader
then paused, before firing off five straight sentences about the respect he has
for his Giants counterpart Tom Coughlin, to be sure his adversary on that
afternoon got his due: "I think he's one of the top coaches in the league. I
just really like the way he goes about it, always have." But then it was right
back to describing how he felt, and still feels, about the 37-20 beatdown on the
Packers' home turf."</p></div>http://www.bigblueview.com/section/news

THE LIGHTER SIDE OF COUGHLIN (http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/14684/the-lighter-side-of-coughlin)

"Giants coach Tom Coughlin has been in such a good mood for
months now that Justin Tuck jokingly gave him a new nickname --

Ashley Fox of ESPN.com chatted with Coughlin
at the end of minicamp and writes about how <a href="http://espn.go.com/new-york/story/_/id/8055645/nfl-tom-coughlin-enjoying-ride">he
is savoring every moment</a>.

Coughlin is also confident that <a href="http://espn.go.com/new-york/story/_/id/8052152/new-york-giants-tom-coughlin-confidently-wraps-giants-minicamp">his
team is highly motivated and ready to defend its championship</a>.

as far as the contract extension he recently signed to stay on for another two
seasons after this coming year, Coughlin said, "just a continuation. You just
work as hard as you can and you hope that the opportunity is there to continue
to be the head coach of the New York Giants, which is a position that I've
always been very honored and very proud to be a part of, to have that kind of
responsibility and them trusting in me. I'm happy for the coaches. I'm happy for
everyone involved because it allows us to continue."

Tell us what you
think of the job Coughlin has done and the Giants extending his deal for two
more seasons after this one. "
