    GIANTS' JERREL JERNIGAN EXCITED FOR OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE HIMSELF

    GIANTS' JERREL JERNIGAN EXCITED FOR OPPORTUNITY TO PROVE HIMSELF

    "Wide receiver Mario
    Manningham
    has yet to officially sign his new contract with the San
    Francisco 49ers, but that hiccup aside, it remains highly unlikely that he
    returns to the New York
    Giants
    . Instead, Big Blue appears poised to head into the 2012-2013 season
    with Domenik
    Hixon
    , Ramses
    Barden
    and Jerrel
    Jernigan
    battling for the #3 spot.



    New York
    Giants
    wide receiver Mario
    Manningham
    catches a pass as he is pushed out of bounds by New England
    Patriots free safety Sterling Moore, left and free safety Patrick Chung in the
    closing seconds of Super Bowl XLVI February 5, 2012, in Indianapolis. (UPI

    A healthy Hixon would seemingly lead the charge and be the man to beat in
    such a scenario, but going into his second season with the team, Jernigan
    actually feels like he's the man whose job it is to lose.





    "Its pretty much a business now and Im thankful for the opportunity to go
    out there and show everybody what I can do. Im thankful that Coach Coughlin and
    Jerry Reese are giving me an opportunity to step up to the plate and be the next
    man," Jernigan said. "Coach will do the evaluation in the offseason
    and during camp and stuff so well see but Im approaching it like Im the
    third receiver.




    In his first year with the team, Jernigan hauled in a grant total of 0
    catches for 0 yards. However, if you're looking for a silver lining there, it's
    the same stat-line produced by Victor
    Cruz
    in his first season with the team. Then again, Cruz finished his first
    season playing five fewer games and eventually ended up on Injured Reserve
    (IR).




    If Jernigan is serious about this opportunity, and it'd be foolish to believe
    he wasn't, the first thing he'll have to do is prepare and produce well enough
    to shed the nickname given to him by head coach Tom Cough: One Play JJ.




    Is this another incredible success story waiting to happen? Time will tell,
    but you've got to love his confidence."

    [/quote]Really any of the three would be a story if they had a breakout season like cruz did.
    Hixon cause of the two season ending injuries last 2 yrs.
    JJ being a rookie and not playing at all in first yr like cruz
    And Barden for same reasons as Hixon plus he was drafted with high expectations due to his height and comparison to plax
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    0 catches for 0 yards......with only 3 targets all season :P.

    I believe JJ can be a good #3 for us. I also think Hixon is most likely the one guy standing in front of him so he better work his *** off to prove he is better
    "...two minute drill at the end of each quarter, Ya'know with the wind like this blowing mooch and marshall into the ocean...If that's behind me I think were getting 3 from 70 so holla at your boy. IF YOU DON"T PICK ME THAT'S A JOKE RIGHT?" - Justin Tucker, Ravens kicker

    Complain?, ain't Nobody got time for dat!

    GO GIANTS!

    i hope Jerigan does prove to be the #3!




    Hixon im not optimistic about with his history of injuries!




    Barden is still unproven going into his 4th year! too many ????s about this guy!




    Jernigan has a good chance to be the #3 imo!

    Barden will be gone before next season's games start.




    Hixon is a question mark with health




    JJ.....nobody knows. The playing field is equal for all right now...

    Jernigan will get every opportunity as will Barden. Hixon has proven his ability and if his knee isn't a problem he may well emerge as the # 3 when all is said and done.

    What they like about Hixon is his versatility

    When JR picks a player in the first 3 rounds of a draft, he expects them to become a contributor by their 2nd year. I have a feeling we will see big things from JJ this year.

    He knows the slot position very well and has incredible agility. I like his prospects.

    I hope JJ does well, but I saw nothing in the return game that excited me. I think he is a poor mans wes welker and has to show something to be elevated above Barden and Hixon at this stage.

    That is how they should approach the competition, believing in themselves. The results of their effort will determine their place on the roster, or not.
