GIANTS' ELI MANNING LAUGHS OFF AMANI TOOMER'S COMMENTS (http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2012/07/giants_eli_manning_laughs_off.html)

Excerpt: ""You’ve got to laugh about it," Manning said of offseason commentary and criticism in general before turning toward Toomer's comments specifically. "I saw Toomer not too long ago. I just walked up to him and said, 'You know what, I thought Ike Hilliard (was) a better Giants receiver than you were. Willie Ponder was probably a better receiver than you were.' … You’ve got to laugh about it instead of getting upset. There’s no point. "Amani’s been a good pal of mine and still is, so you’ve got to laugh about it." Read more...

ELI MANNING: "WE'VE STILL GOT A LOT TO PROVE" (http://www.giants101.com/2012/07/23/new-york-giants-eli-manning-weve-still-got-a-lot-to-prove/)

Excerpt: "The New York Giants (http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/) may have won the Super Bowl this past February, but that's still not enough for quarterback Eli Manning (http://www.giants101.com/tag/eli-manning/). The team went 9-7 during the regular season, and their leader wants to see significant improvement in that area. More specifically, he wants Big Blue to bottle whatever it was that carried them through the playoffs and to their second Lombardi Trophy in five years." Read more...

GIANTS' RAMSES BARDEN: "i'M HERE TO BE THE MAN. PLAIN AND SIMPLE." (http://www.giants101.com/2012/07/22/new-york-giants-ramses-barden-“i’m-here-to-be-the-man-plain-and-simple/)

Excerpt: "New York Giants wide receiver Ramses Barden has had several chances over the last few years. Big Blue made him their third-round selection in the 2009 draft in hopes that he could serve as the replacement for Plaxico Burress (http://www.giants101.com/tag/plaxico-burress/). Barden was a touchdown producing machine at California Polytechnic State University, breaking all kinds of records, giving hope to the Giants that he could produce at that level in the NFL."

(http://www.giants101.com/2012/07/23/is-new-york-giants-rookie-rueben-randle-an-nfl-ready-wide-receiver/)
Excerpt: "Each April, 32 NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) general managers gather with their respective coaching staffs and college scouts to select a new crop of prospects to join the ranks of the league's elite talent. It's the culmination of a long, drawn out process that begins the moment each draftee steps onto the college field. Ultimately, some of these players will pan out, while most of them will spend a few seasons bouncing around the NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) before finding themselves out of football (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/) shortly after the inception of their once promising careers."

BIG BLUE VIEW PRESEASON ALL NFC-EAST TEAM: FULL TEAM REVEALED (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/7/23/3176736/big-blue-view-preseason-all-nfc-east-team-full-team-revealed)

Excerpt "Voting has concluded for our Big Blue View 2012 Preseason All-NFC East Team. I must say I'm not surprised, even a little bit, by the number of New York Giants voted to the team who don't truly belong. I doubt that if you are honest with yourself you can look at this team and say the voting results truly indicate the best players at each position heading into the 2012 NFL season. I am certainly not chastising those of you who took the opportunity to vote, but I think that especially when you look at the defense on this team you can easily argue that several of the Giants voted in really don't belong.": Read more...

2012 NFC EAST PREVIEW: WASHINGTON REDSKINS (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/7/22/3171444/2012-nfc-east-preview-washington-redskins)

Excerpt: "In recent offseasons, the Washington Redskins have had a thirst to prove themselves. In those years, they have ended their seasons in the NFC East basement. This offseason, they once again have a big hunger to make a statement in 2012. Although they likely won't be contenders, there is a different kind of spark in the air with Robert Griffin III having been selected second overall in the 2012 NFL Draft to be their franchise quarterback."

Excerpt: "The 2011 Philadelphia Eagles were once referred to as the "Dream Team". They made a free agent splash by signing cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha last season and had the talent to be a power house team. Unfortunately for them that's not what happened. In fact, the complete opposite happened." Read more...

NY GIANTS' NEWS AND NOTES: R AND D EDITION (http://www.bigblueview.com/2012/7/23/3177180/new-york-giants-news-and-notes-r-and-d-edition)

Excerpt: "Good morning fellow Giants fans. Welcome to the "R" and "D" edition of our news and notes. No, that doesn't have any actual connotation to the Giants, it's a term I came up with while perusing for news this morning--the words "repeat" and "dynasty" are coming up and will keep coming up throughout camp, the preseason and hopefully the regular season. That is logical speculation, too, as general manager Jerry Reese has quietly re-tooled the team and because the Giants have won two of the last five Super Bowls (that never gets old). Of course, we journalists will write those words and will try to egg them out of players' mouths, but it's still fun speculation and not in the least bit uncalled for. Meanwhile, let's have a look at what's going on three days before the start of training camp." Read more...

MONDAY NUGGETS: TO ALBANY AND BEYOND (http://www.giantsfootballblog.com/2012/07/23/monday-nuggets-to-albany-and-beyond/)

Excerpt: "This Thursday, the Giants will report to training camp at the University of Albany. Their goal? To buck the trend of recent Super Bowl champions who have failed to repeat. The last seven winners have fallen short in the quest to get back to the Super Bowl the next year. The Giants took four years to get back the the big game, but when they did they “finished” off the New England Patriots (again) and now, the pressure is squarely on their shoulders." Read more...
