  • Giants' Rueben Randle bushes aside work ethic concerns

    http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2...l#incart_river

    Excerpt: "Rueben Randle knows what Chris Collinsworth said about him in Sunday night's NBC broadcast. He is aware Collinsworth questioned his work ethic on national television -- a few of his Twitter followers made sure of that.

    But he wasn't aware that Victor Cruz did the same in a New York Post report published today. In the article, Cruz questioned the rookie wide receiver's attitude and professionalism.

    "I donít know anything about it so I'm not sure what Victor has said," Randle said this afternoon. "It's my first time hearing about it."

    Randle, a second-round pick, said coaches haven't asked him to pick up the effort, but to "play faster" and study both film and the playbook more." Read more...

    dont be scared.....

    if you see smoke you put it out before it flares up. This will "extinguished" by Randle himself. Sunday he will step up and have a solid game.

    They didn't ask me not to come back to the training facility ... only that I was fired.

    I live in the south and got to watch a lot of LSU games, he can play ball. Going from the system in college that LSU ran to what the Giants run is like doing basic addition and jumping to quantum physics. Also, next to the qb position wr is the toughest transition to make. He may be tip toeing around but I don't think it has anything to do with him being lazy, I think he is just so used to being able to rely on his ability alone.

He might not of been open all 27 of those snaps, mind you some were running plays too I'm sure. I think he will be fine the harder he practices and the more snaps he gets. Maybe it will all come together this game with Barden and Nicks probably out.
    Obviously, if the coaches tell you to step it into high gear during practice, he is tippy toeing while expecting to play and grow. Duh, he is an idiot just like MM was during his tenure here. Cruz is giving him a heads-up and hopefully he takes it all to heart and does so.

    Otherwise, be gone, next man up!!!!

    pretty funny i was super against this pick when we made it.. The guy never did nothing at LSU, and just seemed like another guy to me.. Sure he didn't have any really great QB play, but when ur supposed to be very good, u just find ways to be more involved.. I was extremely worried about this pick, and this dosen't make me feel any better about it..

    Of course, he could end up being a stud, but my worries about the pick are enhanced with this story breaking...

    Exactly right... This will be a great opportunity to show evryone just why we drafted him in the second round. When I watched him get drafted, I immediately thought about Amani Toomer and how he took a little time to get used to the NFL game, But when he did, Oh Boy!!!

    He is going to have a golden opportunity on Sunday's game. We'll see what he does with the chances he gets.

    If I'm not mistaken, didn't Cruz take a good long minute to learn the offense as well?
