With some new faces on the team this season I'm looking forward to seeing how well our new additions fit in. Apart from actually watching the game I want to keep an eye on LB Keith Rivers, S Kenny Phillips, and TE Martellus Bennett.
Phillips is playing for a contract this season and I hope we somehow come up with the money to pay him. I'm glad we turned the page on C.C. Brown and Michael Johnson, but let's keep that page turned. I'm hoping he has a breakout season this year. He's one of my favorite players on the team.
I want to see what Rivers can do in our defense. Boley has missed a lot of practice time and Rivers has really stepped it up with the first team. Hopefully he can prove his worth and be an absolute steal. We've been looking for a stud LB and maybe we finally have one. Time will tell but I'll be watching him and the rest of our LB's closely tonight as they try to contain DeMarco Murray.
Martellus Bennett should be an interesting matchup for Dallas. He's going into his first game as a Giant against his former team and I'm sure he wants to make some noise. I think he can be a real gamechanger with the way Eli gets our TE's involved. Especially considering how much more athletic he is than the TE's we've had since Shockey left.
Should be a good game.
