    Making your name in the NFL is tough.

    You need skill, poise and the athletic ability to hang with the best in the world. And even then you're not remotely assured to be seen. You also need luck. A confluence of incidents that provide you the shot to be noticed. Some players have a leg up on this (high draft picks). Some make themselves noticed, even when you're not supposed to be looking (Cruz in the preseason of 2010). Some teams try to buy this (free agents).

    And every once in awhile, you just "get your shot". As is the case this week for a number of Giants.

    Andre Brown
    Ramses Barden
    Martelus Bennett
    Ruben Randle
    Jernel Jernigan (if he even gets to dress for this game).

    All these guys will be heavily relied upon in tonight's game. We say stuff like "the next man up" but for these guys ... this is their shot. This is their time to shine. This is a time to make careers.

    These are the games I look forward to because these are the times when you can "I remember when he broke out!".

      Luck can give you success for a play, but long-term success is determined by talent and preparation. Those that are successful excel at both. Hopefully some of the guys you mentioned are ready.

        I agree with what your saying here and I made a post similar to this as far as unknowns getting their shot to step up. I'd also put Prince, Wilson, Beatty and Scott on this list as well. All of them have an opportunity to shine.

        *(Jernigan will definitely dress being they only have four wide-outs.)

          Prince and Wilson will get more looks going forward due to their draft status even if they are only mediocre (or even downright bad) in this game.

          Beatty has shown himself capable .... he just needs to last (imo).

          Scott possibly ... if we see him at all.

                    You have weakened me with laughter!
                    My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of the Super Bowl 46: Dad, are the Giants gonna win?

                    Burier: Yes.

                    My 5 year old son right before the kickoff of Super Bowl 46: Do you promise?

                    Burier: Yes. I promise.

                      I'm really curious to know what GameTime thinks of this...

                              Injuries are usually the reason a lot of these mid-to-late round picks finally get a chance. It's what they make of it. Tom Brady is a prime example coming in for Drew Bledsoe. It's time for one of these hidden gems to shine.
