    HENRY HYNOSKI IS READY FOR A BIGGER ROLE IN GIANTS' OFFENSE

    "By many accounts, Giants fullback Henry Hynoski had an
    impressive NFL debut which included becoming the only rookie on offense last
    season to win and hold a starting job throughout the season, a job in which he
    laid several key blocks in the running game and in which he caught 12 passes for
    83 yards (6.9 average) in the regular season to boot.


    But for as good as he was last year, Hynoski, now entering his sophomore year
    as a Giant, knows he can get better, and that’s exactly what he’s been focusing
    on this off-season as he prepares for what will hopefully be a larger role in
    the offense.




    “This off-season I really put an emphasis on building up my upper body,” he
    said, adding that he also managed to reduce his overall body fat while
    maintaining his weight of 266. “You can always work on speed, but the big thing
    with me especially with my mid-season injury last year was developing my upper
    body, and that’s what I did.”




    Indeed, without any sort of pads on during the Giants’ first OTA practice
    this spring, Hynoski was among the Giants who clearly looked as though he had
    reaped the benefits of his off-season training. The change in his body and
    strength, combined with the confidence he has following his successful rookie
    season had him turning in a solid showing in the opening practice.




    “I feel fast. I feel quick, I feel athletic, I feel like I have a good change
    of direction just today running through the hole, making quick cuts on my read,
    turning back in and ‘hitting’ linebackers,” he said. “I feel very quick and
    athletic also, so I feel that my off-season program, since I got back here
    really took off.”




    He’s also wiser when it comes to the playbook. Not one to make many mistakes
    in executing his assignments, Hynoski was flying around the field looking as
    though he drew up the plays himself. He correctly identified a linebacker trying
    to fill a hole on a David Wilson run; he blocked a “blitzing” linebacker” on a
    pass in 7-on-7 drills, and he managed to get out into the flat with little to no
    effort, catching everything thrown his way.




    “I felt so confident,” he said about his knowledge of the Giants’ playbook.
    “I was reviewing the script before practice, and everything just came like
    second nature, and it’s so ingrained in my system now.




    “When I first went out there, I thought I would struggle a bit, just getting
    back into the swing. But I feel like I picked up where I left off – maybe even a
    bit ahead of things.”




    In addition to improving himself physically, Hynoski, an avid student of the
    game, spent a lot of time this off-season studying film.




    “I was watching film (of myself) closely, and I noticed that a some of the
    time, I would false-step out of my stance, which would cause me a delay of just
    a split second,” he said. “That’s something I’m really emphasizing working on.
    I’m in the two-point stance, so a lot of times, I would take a false step if I
    need to go forward real quick.”




    Once he gets that corrected, he said, he’ll get to where he needs to be a lot
    quicker.




    By the end of summer camp, Hynoski is hoping that his hard work leads to an
    increased role in the Giants offense. While he will still be called upon to be
    the battering ran in the running game, Hynoski, who was a prolific running back
    at Southern Columbia High School, is hoping to get his hands on the ball a
    little more this season.




    “I kind of see how things are developing (and) I think I’m going to touch the
    ball a little more this year,” he said. “Obviously, I’ll have to be the hammer
    like I was last year, and lead block.




    “I think eventually (the coaches) are going to look to expand my personnel
    packages and use me in different ways, especially in the passing game.”




    If he can excel in an expanded role, the Giants will have something they
    haven’t had in quite some time – a versatile fullback who, when he steps onto
    the field, will have to be accounted for by opposing defenses in both the run
    and pass games.




    “I just want to go in and be in the best possible shape I can be in,” he said
    about his plan for the rest of the off-season. “I don’t want to have to take a
    second wind and I don’t want to be tired. I want to go out there every play and
    feel 100 percent.”




    If he can accomplish that, he could be pretty hard to stop this season ."

              You could be right, but what are you basing that on? We haven't had a contact practice yet.

                Didn't see many holes last year. OLine ? Tip-toe Jacobs ? One-foot Bradshaw ? Pick your poison.

                  I just find it hard to pin a team failure on one player, any player, but whatever floats your boat.

                    Don't hear what I'm not saying. Not pinning failure on anyone.

                    Your article props him up like the second coming of Jesus. I just don't see handing out attaboys to anyone from last year's running attack or lack thereof. Do you ?

                          If the question is was there anything good about the running game last season, the answer is yes. The make shift line, pummeled by injuries, and, at times, resembling a revolving door, set a franchise record for 5 consecutive sackless games.

                            Take it easy man. RF posts tons of articles and brings news to giants fans on these boards. Just bc he posted the article doesn't mean its his opinion. He didnt write it he just copy and pasted.

                            Also, the run game was bad last year because of a lot of things. Pinning it on a rookie fullback is foolish

                              Yea the dude getting pissy is being ridiculous.

                              Not Hynoski's fault that Baas and the guards were routinely whiffing on blocks and letting LBs in like water through a broken dam.

                              He showed great promise making his blocks when the O-Line did their job, and was a great outlet for Eli in the flats.

                              Definitely excited for his progression.
