NY GIANTS' OTA'S RETROSPECTIVE: DID WE LEARN ANYTHING?
"Here are three things we learned last week during the New York Giants
- Injuries will happen regardless of how soft
Commissioner Roger Goodell wants to make practices for NFL teams. Witness the
torn ACL of Brian
Witherspoon and the broken foot of Hakeem Nicks,
both suffered in non-competitive drills.
- David Diehl will
play right tackle and Kevin Boothe
will begin as the starting left guard. Maybe Mitch Petrus
can take that spot away from Boothe, but installing Boothe in that spot is
typical of the Giants. Tom Coughlin is nothing if not loyal to players who are
successful for him.
- Running back might be the most interesting
position to watch unfold throughout the preseason. Ahmad
Bradshaw and first-round pick David Wilson
are locks. Fullback Henry
Hynoski should also be a lock -- and might have a bigger role in the
offense. But, the competition between DJ Ware, Da'Rel Scott,
Andre Brown and
will be fun to watch as it unfolds."
