GIANTS' SUMMER QUESTIONNAIRE: WIDE RECEIVER DAN DEPALMA (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/07/giants_summer_questionnaire_wi.html)

"Had this been last year and I'd told you folks veterans were raving about
Dan DePalma and saying he could really make an impact this upcoming season, most
of you would've rolled your eyes. But thanks to Victor Cruz, we realize it's
actually possible for a guy to come out of nowhere.


Don't misconstrue here. I'm not saying the 5-11, 200-pound DePalma is
going to set franchise records after spending all of last season on the practice
squad. (<a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2011/09/giants_to_sign_verona_native_a.html">The
Giants signed DePalma</a> in September after he spent training camp with the
Jets.) What I'm saying is I believe the veterans who have noted all of the tools
the Verona native showed in practice and will be keeping a close eye on him in
Albany because we haven't seen him do much at all, on account of the fact the
team portions of in-season practices are closed to the media.</p>


DePalma, who played the role of the New England Patriots' Julian Edelman
in practices leading up to Super Bowl XLVI and could prove to be as versatile as
Edelman, talks about the lofty expectations his teammates have of him in this
installment of our <a href="http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/summer_questionnaire/index.html">Giants
summer questionnaire</a>:</p>


You sat out most of this spring following hip surgery. How much work
will you be able to do before camp?</p>


Just stick with my routine really. I’ll go back to my regular workout regimen
and will hopefully be cleared to go fully for camp. I’ll just continue to do the
rehab in the meantime.</p>


Has the rehab gone as scheduled?</p>


Absolutely. I’m actually ahead of schedule, so I’ve been doing a lot more
route running and stuff like that, whereas usually people are usually running
straight-ahead (during rehab). The cutting and stuff like that has all gone
perfectly – no problem, no inflammation, doesn’t hurt – so they’re real happy
with the way it went.</p>


A lot of veterans have spoken highly about you and mentioned you as a
potential sleeper. When you hear that kind of stuff, what do you think?</p>


It’s just motivation. I want to be that guy. ‘The Secret Weapon,’ that’s what
they called me in high school and that’s what I’d like to be. Nobody knows about
you and you just come out of nowhere. That’s kind of been the story of my life.
So I’ll just keep working hard and push myself to make my dreams come true.</p>


You made the jump from Division II to the NFL. Was there a point when
you said, ‘I can compete here'?</p>


Absolutely. As an athlete you always question, ‘Can I play at that next
level?’ When I was in college, I always wondered if I could’ve played at the
big-time schools. When you make that jump and come to camp and realize, ‘These
are guys my age and, relatively, my size and speed.’ You start running routes
and you beat a guy here and there. And you start learning that the more you
study and practice that, at this level, the better you become and you think, ‘I
can do this. I can play at this level.’ And from there, you just keep building,
keep studying and it all comes down to how much work you’re willing to put
in.</p>


So that was you last year on the practice squad, beating guys here
and there?</p>


Yeah, I’m working my way up. I’m going to put in the work, study and do
everything I have to do to make sure I play on Sundays.</p>


What can people expect from you this year?</p>


Hopefully, big things. I know my role will be on special teams mostly. Play
some special teams, make some big plays and make some tackles. Just pretty much
contribute anywhere I can. I’m that all-around guy that can play a little bit of
defense on the practice squad, they can move me around on special teams.
Wherever the coach needs me is where I’ll be and I’ll do it to the best of my
ability."</p>http://www.nj.com/giants/

<font size="4"><font size="3">GIANTS' KEVIN GILBRIDE SAYS BEAR PASCOE IS "STARTING TIGHT END" -- FOR NOW</font> (http://www.giants101.com/2012/07/12/new-york-giants-kevin-gilbride-calls-bear-pascoe-starting-tight-end-for-now/)<font size="3">
</font></font>
"Tight end/fullback <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Bear Pascoe" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/bear-pascoe/" rel="tag nofollow">Bear
Pascoe</a> is often the forgotten man in a New York (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york/) Giants offense that sports extreme athleticism
and a number of current and budding superstars. During the 2011-2012 season, he
hauled in only 12 passes, but averaged an impressive 11.3 yards per reception
with seven first downs. He also came through in a big way during a playoff run
that led to another Lombardi Trophy, as he caught an additional five passes for
39 yards and a touchdown.

While Pascoe is never going to light up the box score, he brings the Giants
unique versatility and, as offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride says (http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/14893/spotlight-tight-ends), unbelievable toughness.</p>
<blockquote>


"You are hoping to have Bear as a swing guy, a second tight end – he could
motion back and play the fullback position, give you what he has always given.
you which is unbelievable toughness and somehow making plays that maybe you
don't think that he should be able to make," Gilbride said. "He always seems to
make [those plays] for you."</p></blockquote>


With Jake Ballard now in New England and Travis Beckum still recovering from
a torn ACL, Pascoe has rocketed up the depth chart. And despite the team having
signed former Dallas Cowboy Martellus Bennett (http://www.giants101.com/tag/martellus-bennett/) and drafted <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Adrien Robinson" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/adrien-robinson/" rel="tag nofollow">Adrien
Robinson</a> out of Cincinnati, Gilbride says that, for now, Pascoe is the
starting tight end.</p>
<blockquote>


"Right now he is the starting tight end. Martellus was out and just barely
got back. <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Adrien Robinson" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/adrien-robinson/" rel="tag nofollow">Adrien
Robinson</a> missed [OTAs]. So right now we have a long way to go at that spot,"
Gilbride said. "You are hoping Martellus [steps up]. … That is why he was
brought here. You are hoping that <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Adrien Robinson" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/adrien-robinson/" rel="tag nofollow">Adrien
Robinson</a> down the road would be the guy. If not, Bear is going to be the
guy."</p></blockquote>


In addition to the aforementioned Bennett and Robinson, Christian Hopkins (http://www.giants101.com/tag/christian-hopkins/), <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Ryan Purvis" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/ryan-purvis/" rel="tag nofollow">Ryan
Purvis</a> and <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Larry Donnell" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/larry-donnell/" rel="tag nofollow">Larry
Donnell</a> will all be competing for a roster spot come training camp. However,
with Beckum likely to start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP)
list, Pascoe has the most experience and familiarity with the Giants' offense,
giving him the clear leg-up. The starting position will either be his to lose or
Bennett's to win. Either way, expect Pascoe to play a significant role in
2012."</p>http://www.giants101.com/

GIANTS FACE DIFFICULT SCHEDULE, NO MATTER HOW YOU LOOK AT IT (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/7/12/3154674/new-york-giants-f2012-schedule-difficulty)

"Ever since the 2012 NFL schedule came out, we have known that the defending
Super Bowl champion New York Giants (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants)
face a difficult schedule in their effort to defend their title.<div class="entry-body">


By traditional methods (combined 2011 winning percentage of opponents), the
Giants face the most difficult schedule in the NFL (http://espn.go.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/56896/2012-nfl-strength-of-schedule). The combined
winning percentage of their 2012 foes was .547 last season.</p>


Like Sabermetricians in baseball, however, some folks are never satisfied
with traditional methods. They have to dig deeper, find more complicated -- and
possibly better -- ways of measuring things. The folks at Beyond The Bets (http://beyondthebets.com/2012/07/11/nfl-strength-of-schedule-2012-a-new-way-to-define-which-teams-have-the-toughest-roads/) have done just that when it comes to rating
schedule difficulty.</p>
<p class="extend-divide"><a name="storyjump"></a>http://cdn1.sbnation.com/images/blog/star-divide.v5e9d7f1.jpg</p>


'Bets' combined last season's winning percentage with a couple of other
factors and came up with a ranking of its own. Guess what? They figured out that
the Giants schedule is incredibly difficult, though in their rankings the
Cleveland Browns face a slightly tougher road.</p>


The point of all of this? I guess it's that no matter how you slice it, the
Giants have a tough schedule in 2012.</p>

NY GIANTS' NEWS AND NOTES: THURSDAY GOODIES (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/7/12/3153588/new-york-giants-news-and-notes-thursday-goodies)</p>

"Good morning, New York Giants (http://www.sbnation.com/nfl/teams/new-york-giants)
fans! A surprising number of links for you today, two weeks from the day players
report to UAlbany for Giants training camp.</p><div class="entry-body">


<a href="http://insidefootball.com/blog/archives/4640?utm_source=twitterfeed&amp;utm_medium=twitter">Summertime
Blog Bits: Cornerback Terrell Thomas | Inside Football</a>
Q. You’ve
always been a spiritual man. Can you share a bit about how your faith has gotten
you through this challenge?
A. I’ll admit that I lost my faith when I got
injured. I wasn’t mad at God. But I kind of questioned Him in a way. I just
couldn’t understand how, after everything I had been through in my life, why
would this happen now? I still don’t know, but He’s still teaching me, and He
restored my faith and I will never lose it again. He taught me, ‘Just love Me,
and work hard.’ It’s crazy because I got the Bible verse 1 Peter 5:6 tatted on
me before camp which says, "Humble yourself upon God and in due time He shall
exalt you." So I kind of took that and said, ‘Wow, I kind of jinxed myself,’ but
at the same time, I learned a lot from the experience.

Q. What did
you learn?
A. I became a man and it taught me that I could overcome
anything if I have faith and if I work at it. I’m still overcoming this injury —
it’s not done at all. Bu t this experience has definitely taught me not to lose
my faith in God because He definitely has a plan for my and will always be there
for me.</p>

<u>
</u>GIANTS' TRIVIA CORNER FOR THURSDAY (http://www.giantsfootballblog.com/2012/07/12/giants-trivia-corner-for-thursday-3/)

"Yesterday’s question: Of the players listed
below, the one who did not maintain a 4.0 yards-per-carry average over their
Giant career:
<ul> Joe Morris Tiki Barber Rodney Hampton Brandon Jacobs (http://sny.stats.com/fb/playerstats.asp?id=7286&amp;team=19) Frank Gifford Ahmad Bradshaw (http://sny.stats.com/fb/playerstats.asp?id=8504&amp;team=19)[/list]


The answer: Rodney Hampton, who gained 6,897 yards on 1,824
carries – an average of 3.8 yards per attempt. Hampton retired in 1997 as the
club’s leading rusher. He is third all-time in rushing TDs with 49.</p>


Tiki Barber, the franchise’s all time leader in rushing yards, averaged 4.7
yards in his career. of the group listed, he is followed by Brandon Jacobs
(4.5), Ahmad Bradshaw (4.6), Frank Gifford (4.3) and Joe Morris (4.0)</p>


Today’s question….2011 was a banner year for the
Giants’ receiving corp. Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks both eclipsed 1,000 yards
receiving – a first for the Giants – but neither scored enough TDs to land
themselves in the Giants’ top 10 for a single season.</p>


Who holds the franchise single-season record for receiving
TDs?"</p>GIANT'S DEFENSIVE READY TO GET IT DONE IN 2012 (http://www.giantsfootballblog.com/2012/07/11/ny-giants-defensive-end-ready-to-get-it-done-in-2012/)

"Stepping up and getting the job…enter No. 72 Osi Umenyiora.


No one can deny that when No. 72 is happy and healthy he can make many
offensive tackles look bad. Now that he is happy, paid and healthy the Giants
defensive end needs to put on a show.</p>


There was a time not so long ago when the New York Giants were stacked at
defensive end and it was scary. Justin Tuck (http://sny.stats.com/fb/playerstats.asp?id=7250&amp;team=19), Mathias Kiwanuka (http://sny.stats.com/fb/playerstats.asp?id=7781&amp;team=19), Jason Pierre Paul, Dave Tollefson and Osi
Umenyiora.</p>


Kiwanuka is a full time linebacker at this stage of his career and the fan
favorite and high motor of Dave Tollefson will missed since the defensive end
left via free agency.</p>


One of the NFL “break out” players of the year, Jason Pierre Paul will be
seeing many more double teams in 2012; however if NY Giants Defensive
Coordinator, Perry Fewell can manage to put JPP, Tuck and Osi on the field at
the same time they Giants defense could flourish.</p>


The Giant fans will not have any Osi training camp drama or back page stories
this season concerning the New York Giants star, so one could expect some
serious production from the star defensive end.</p>


Will Umenyiora be expected to make a few more tackle this season…with out
question. Will Umenyiora be expected to have a 12 plus sack
season…no doubt. Will Umenyiora be motivated and regain leadership status…with
a 3.5 million dollar raise I can’t see why not.</p>


<a title="Osi restructuring" href="http://http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/7998190/osi-umenyiora-new-york-giants-agree-restructured-deal">According
to The Newark Star Ledger and ESPN…” Umenyiora was entering the final year of a
seven-year, $41 million contract he signed in 2005. He was slated to make just
less than $4 million this season. This new deal is for just 2012, and is simply
a restructuring. The source also said the team would not use the franchise tag
on the defensive end in the spring.</a></p>


Defensive tackle Chris Canty who had one of his finest seasons as a New York
Giant in 2011 is recuperating from off season surgery and 3rd year player,
Marvin Austin will need to hold down the fort if often injured Defensive Tackle
Marvin Austin can not regain the player dominance he showed in college.</p>


There will enough snaps for Osi Umemyiora. Everyone can only hope that the
past is the the past and that Osi will be happy once again with his hand in the
dirt and living in the backfields of their opponent."

I thought it was interesting that he practiced with Eli and the receivers last year during the lock out.

Add Dan DePalma to the list of guys I need to keep an eye out for in training camp.</P>Hope here can come in an make an impact like an Edelman but really I don't see him doing much but STs. With guys ahead of him like RR, JJ, Hixon, Barden
I really don't see him passing enough guys on that list to get any amount of playing time.

I agree that DePalma likely won't pass enough guys ahead of him to get significant playing time. However, I have been intrigued by this guy ever since CW said that of all the receivers on the team, DePalma is the hardest to cover. I'm looking forward to seeing him in preseason.
