    WR Rueben Randle showcases talents

    http://www.giants.com/news-and-blogs...1-9e4b660dfcd7

    Excerpt: "Tom Coughlin said it.
    Eli Manning texted it

    Sunday would be ’s Randle's opportunity.

    A high probability all week, there was little surprise when injured wide receivers and were officially ruled out of Week 5’s contest against the Browns due to injuries. Thus the Giants had time to prep players who were waiting in the wings. Players like the rookie Randle.

    Manning took it a step further and set up a one-on-one film session with him on Thursday. It was the first time the two had met like that.

    “He texted me,” Randle recalled of the meeting which he said took about a half hour. “He said he was going to be watching film and I should come join him so I said I would be in there with him. We went in there and watched a lot of their blitzes and third down, things like that just to be on the same page.” Read more...

    He did what needed to be done to put that to rest.

    Agreed. I always felt that if he got his chance, he'd shine.

    Oh Jesus Chistmas.... Stop with the Barden HATE! Ramses stepped up when his number was called, let it go.
    ZERO quality wins the last 2 seasons. Major changes are needed.

    he played well.

    that 'praise' he was getting wasn't exactly glowing.

    "i'll have to see the rest of the game to see what that was all about....."

    sounds like a head coach who's happy with his play but wants to keep a fire under his ***.

    the announcers even admitted that he's still not running option routes right now.

    so i hope he keeps contributing like this, but lets not make it seem like these rumors we were hearing weren't true.

    This article says a lot about Eli's leadership... he brought a guy in that was struggling with the perception that he isn't working hard, went through things with him and the end result was a good game. This is a perfect example of Eli making players around him better... not to take anything from Randle, he came out and showed he belongs on this team and that he has the ability to be a major impact long and short term.

    God job by RR stepping up and helping set up those TDs!!
    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 !!!

    I've been very impressed with Eli's ability to spread the ball around A LOT

    This. Eli threw the ball to 7 different people, and that was without Nicks or Barden. Cruz, Randle, Hixon, Bradshaw, Unicorn, Bear, and even freaking Jernigan had a completion.

    Thank you Reddit for the best gif ever.
