    "With the departure of Mario Manningham, one of the major storylines heading into the season was how the Giants would fill the role of the third wide receiver.

    That task, among others, was put on the plate of Kevin M. Gilbride, who took over as wide receivers coach this year. The season started out as planned as the passing game picked up where it left off from Super Bowl XLVI. Eli Manning was the first quarterback to throw for 1,000 yards in the NFL, and Domenik Hixon and Ramses Barden and took turns stepping up.

    But then the injury bug hit the group and three different wide receivers have started opposite Victor Cruz.

    The thing is, based on injury, weve had to slide some guys in there, whether they were the third wide or not, Gilbride said. The good thing is that weve had some guys step into those roles and be productive. Whether it be Ramses Barden; clearly Domenik Hixon has played well when hes been in there, and Rueben Randles really shown some things when hes been in there as well.

    Gilbride hopes the bye week will cure any nicks and bruises with his group as the Giants prepare for the next phase of the season.

    Meanwhile, Randle is beginning to show his second-round talent both in practice and on the field. The rookie has notched big plays of 56 and 36 yards this season while averaging 14.4 yards per catch.

    Gilbride talked about his progression from the offseason and what he needs to do in the final six weeks of the season.

    Id say he has a grasp of understanding the offense, understanding techniques and then actually getting on the field and executing it, Gilbride said. Hes just made steps in the right direction. Hes not where he needs to be, but hes getting there. Then hopefully down the stretch run, he can really be a factor helping our team.
    I haven't seen anything to run home about with this kid. He constantly running wrong routes in games.

    I guess Collinsworth was wrong about Randle's work ethic.

    For a rookie that wasn't in a very pass friendly offense all through college, Randle has done well. Out positions his cbs well, good hands. Quick enough and strong enough. The guy has a future, not sure if he will ever develop into starter material but he definately has a future in the NFL.

    Just need him (and the rest of the offense) to get back in sync.

    I going to agree with you on this one, don't think the kid is ready for prime time yet!

    He has been pretty solid, Hixon should be back to kick returns and Randle should be #3 wr.
