    Defensive conditioning

    Listening to Mike n Mike today and Jaworski commented on how physical the ravens D was late in the season and attributed it fantastic conditioning. I would agree totally. Some have pointed to injuries that plague the giants as a direct link to conditioning. Now I know all teams suffer injuries, its football. But I felt both teams going in to the superbowl have dominating defensive players and it seems the conditioning their coaches put upon them certainly pays off.

    I've been on this for a long time.
    The Giants coaches need to do a much better job with this.
    There has to be much more time dedicated to the conditioning of these athletes.
    These nagging injuries that continue from one year to the next cannot be acceptable.
    Thank You!!!

    the Giants have one of the best conditioning staffs not only in the NFL but in all of sports

    Jerry Palmieri is an award winning strength and conditioning trainer and is highly regarded and coveted in the league

    No matter how often you say it, people will still not believe you.

    defensive conditioning could very well be the problem since the team seems to run out of gas as the season goes on

    yea I dont buy our great conditioning because on the field shows otherwise. That award is probably more like NBA all star game where people just vote the guys they know and you get tracy mcgrady 5 years out of his prime with no knees and averaging 5 ppg getting to play in the all star game

    I have to agree with you. The Giants looked spent against the Falcons and Ravens.

    if these guys are not motivated enough to keep them selves in top condition there is nothing any trainer or coach can do

    these are grown men people

    the NY Giants trainers put them on the best lifting , cardio, and dietary programs ...... custom built for each player

    if they are winded and out of shape it is their own lazy *** fault for not putting in the extra work

    any pro athlete that needs his hand held by a coach or trainer will not last long in any league
