You can't look at stats in a vacuum.  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 2:49 pm : link
Perhaps if our TEs had been better run blockers, there would have been fewer pass plays called on, say, 2nd & long, 3rd & long, out of necessity.

Also, just because a TE went out for a pass, doesn't mean he didn't have to hit someone on his way out. I don't know how you'd measure that, or gauge its effectiveness.

Finally, we may not have a Gronk/Hernandez or Jimmy Graham, but no one else has The Hynocerous, our not-so-secret weapon.

Corey Webster picks off Eli for Cruz by winning a jump ball. "Salsa that!" says Rolle. #nyg
Bennett makes a catch

Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

More 7 on 7: Jernigan makes catch past Thomas. Bennett with a catch on left side as well
Bennett was covered well  
Kyle in NY : 7/29/2012 2:59 pm : link
but Eli threw him open on that catch. It was a nice play.
wait a tick.  
gonelikejacobs : 7/29/2012 2:59 pm : link
Wilson stopped dead in his tracks to bend backwards like Neo and made a guy whiff! Im pumped to watch this kid!
Who's Wilson's position coach?  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 3:01 pm : link
The Road Runner? Meep Meep
Stanback. DePalma  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:02 pm : link
Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Isaiah Stanback and Dan DePalma make catches in 7 on 7. Herzlich breaks up pass for Pascoe to Perry Fewell's delight
Neverend : 7/29/2012 3:06 pm : link
Where are you seeing that about Bennett? Its on TV?
I love rooting for the underdogs...  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 3:06 pm : link
The late-round picks, the UDFAs, the vets trying for one last hurrah...but I don't think I've ever rooted harder for a kid to make it than I am for Mark Herzlich.
I'm at practice  
Kyle in NY : 7/29/2012 3:07 pm : link
Ah, I see  
Neverend : 7/29/2012 3:07 pm : link
thanks for the info
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:09 pm : link
Ebenezer Samuel■@ebenezersamuel

Thomas is not scrimmaging. Seems to be icing knee
Trainers were looking at T2's knee on the side  
Kyle in NY : 7/29/2012 3:09 pm : link
No worries though, looks like he's alright. Moving around fine on the sideline. Coe in for him on defense now though
Thanks Kyle  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:12 pm : link
for giving us live updates

Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Tuck blows up running play in backfield. Tuck also batted down a screen pass as well On a previous play, Rogers appeared to stuff a run.
UberAlias : 7/29/2012 3:13 pm : link
Might be too much info  
Kyle in NY : 7/29/2012 3:13 pm : link
But Buce Johnson is currently vomiting on the sideline after coming off during the scrimmage. He took reps at Thomas' spot
No problem, fellas  
Kyle in NY : 7/29/2012 3:14 pm : link
Good to have the Giants back
BMac : 7/29/2012 3:15 pm : link
...The way Herzlich has been playing so far, I think begs the question of just how much rooting for he needs. I think, barring injury, he's a dead lock to make the team and, before the year is out, to start at MLB.

Also, I think he's just started to get really healthy and is going to get much, much better than he is now.
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 3:16 pm : link
It's only too much information if you go into detail about the vomit itself.
Opinion on Herzlich from Dottino just now  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:17 pm : link

suspect he will overtake chase during season RT @shamron137 @giantswfan I heard Herzlich looks much better this year. Good enough to start?
Props to Greg Jones  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:18 pm : link
Mike Garafolo■@MikeGarafolo

Two straight excellent practices for LB Greg Jones, who seems to have adjusted well to the move from MLB to OLB. #nyg
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 3:19 pm : link
From your mouth to God's ears.
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:24 pm : link
Mike Garafolo■@MikeGarafolo

Rueben Randle has taken his jersey and pads off. Has a towel on his back. If I were to guess, I'd say he's overheated. #nyg
You would think an LSU kid would be used to the heat.  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 3:26 pm : link
Must be all that residual heat from burning our DBs.

Ha! I kill me.
Bennett in the passing game  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:27 pm : link

Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Martellus Bennett catches a hard and high throw from Eli Manning for a TD on Phillips. Used his size and hands

1m Ebenezer Samuel■@ebenezersamuel

Bennett takes lessons from polar bears, catches TD over middle from Eli with Phillips in coverage
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:28 pm : link
Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Stanback finally drops a pass. Is having a good practice with several catches.
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:31 pm : link
Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

And David Douglas continues his solid practice with a TD catch on Bing in back of end zone.
Our dump off offense should be much improved  
SGMen : 7/29/2012 3:31 pm : link
Hyno and Wilson look to add a new phase to our pass game. If Bennett develops into a reliable receiver by mid-season we will be able to chuck the ball anywhere we want.

Also, I am loving the positive pub on our LB's. If Herzlich starts at some point and is a true upgrade over Chase we are just that much better at a position where we took a beating at most of last year. Chase was fresh which helped when he came and saved us. Honestly, I am not sure we make the playoffs last year without Chase's work at MLB - it was that much of an upgrade.

If Jones has really turned the corner and is a player it only helps as well since he is already a superb special teams player. So far, camp is going well for the Giants.

I just don't want to see or hear about any injuries!
If Herzlich starts...  
BMac : 7/29/2012 3:36 pm : link
...over an uninjured Blackburn it is, by definition, an upgrade. Why else would the Giants' make such a move?
Jones deserves to be graded on this  
section125 : 7/29/2012 3:38 pm : link
year's camp. Throwing a rookie MLB on the field without any OTA and limited camp is a recipe for disaster. Speaks well of his effort that he lasted as long as it did before he was wisely replaced. The Giants love players that can play multiple positions, so it can only help to learn OLB too. He was a tackling machine at Mich St.
Update on Rivers and Boley  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:42 pm : link
Mike Garafolo■@MikeGarafolo

Per Coughlin, Boley has a "little hamstring (injury)." Same for Rivers. Trattou MRI tonight. T. Thomas left early to manage his knee. #nyg
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:43 pm : link

Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Coughlin says Greg Jones has practiced well last few days and can play outside and inside.

1m Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Coughlin says Boley has a hamstring issue. May take a few days. Rivers' hamstring kept him out today too.
Coughlin on Herzlich  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:45 pm : link
Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

On Herzlich, Coughlin says he is moving well, focused and has no issues other than wanting to be on field more.
Headhunter : 7/29/2012 3:45 pm : link
played well on Specials in the Playoffs. Rooting for him
Coughlin on Bennett, practice  
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:47 pm : link

Mike Garafolo■@MikeGarafolo

Coughlin says the contact will be increased tomorrow. Half-pads practice. They've been in shells so far. #nyg

43s Ohm Youngmisuk■@NotoriousOHM

Coughlin says good to see Bennett healthy and making a couple of plays
Defenderdawg : 7/29/2012 3:49 pm : link
Mike Garafolo■@MikeGarafolo

Randle "was tired ... ran out of gas." #refuel #nyg
Torn Tendon : 7/29/2012 3:53 pm : link
give Randle a 5 hour energy
Larry in Pencilvania : 7/29/2012 3:54 pm : link
Patricia Traina■@Patricia_Traina

Trattou having MRI tonight.

Patricia Traina■@Patricia_Traina

Boley and Rivers have hammies.

Patricia Traina■@Patricia_Traina

Tc said they would probably be a couple days.
Ha Ha Ha  
Larry in Pencilvania : 7/29/2012 4:00 pm : link
The original BBI China Doll was at camp today!

Tyrone Wheatly

Fingers crossed for Trattou.  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 4:07 pm : link
Bright side with Boley and Rivers, we get to see Jones and Paysinger battle it out.
most of what i read about at linebacker seems to be what..  
Rsspro : 7/29/2012 4:24 pm : link
a lot of us expected.. a logjam.. but makes for some great competition which could bring out the best in a lot of these guys.. also helps that the rookies actually are having a normal offseason this year.. and hopefully they all stay healthy and the best of the bunch make the final 53..
Moondwg : 7/29/2012 4:28 pm : link
totally agreed on Herszchlich (I will never spell his name properly). But now, for me, I am actually getting excited about his talent, and am not just rooting for him as a guy.
Herzlich's an easy guy to root for, any which way you do it.  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 4:49 pm : link
Beating the Big C, fighting just to make the team, now in contention to start at MLB. What a great story.
Moondwg : 7/29/2012 4:55 pm : link
only one strike against him. He grew up an Eagles fan. But we can overlook that. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.
An accident of birth.  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 5:01 pm : link
Yeah, we can forgive him for that.
Fred in Atlanta : 7/29/2012 5:04 pm : link
I believe his dad is a Giant fan though.
Antdog23 : 7/29/2012 5:06 pm : link
but his Dad is a huge Giants fan so he wins that by association.
No kidding?  
Klaatu : 7/29/2012 5:07 pm : link
Ha! Good for his Dad...seeing his son in a Giants uniform! Divine Justice!
To keep the Biblical motif . . .  
Moondwg : 7/29/2012 5:11 pm : link
the prodigal son is still most welcome upon his return.
Wait his dad is a Giant fan and he grew up an Eagle fan  
SLIM : 7/29/2012 5:20 pm : link
someone call DIFYS.
