I don't get the logic  
nyynyg : 7/27/2013 2:48 pm : link
At all of having Cruz practicing punt returns. After seeing what Hixon did just doing a normal cut on a punt return practice, I would never have 1 or 2 doing it, especially when there is a shot in hell that there is a chance you would ever use them there in a game.
Really excited to see Kiwi back on the line...  
okiegiant : 7/27/2013 2:49 pm : link
I have high hopes for an improved defense this year(although they wouldn't have to improve much to be better).
micky : 7/27/2013 3:00 pm : link
Ralph Vacchiano ‏@RVacchianoNYDN 6m

Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan, David Wilson, Jayron Hosley and Victor Cruz handling punt returns.
What happened to Hosley- he's not lining up with 2d team?  
Bobby Epps : 7/27/2013 3:00 pm : link
Plus, Ross and McBride CANNOT be the 2d team CBs, can they?
micky : 7/27/2013 3:01 pm : link
Paul Schwartz ‏@NYPost_Schwartz 3m

Prince Amukamara with first INT of camp, picks off Eli pass deep for Randle
Freakin' Eli is an interception machine...

Just thought I'd get it out of the way!
Fred in Atlanta : 7/27/2013 3:04 pm : link
forgot to say cut Eli
okiegiant : 7/27/2013 3:07 pm : link
AD-Blaze : 7/27/2013 3:08 pm : link
Agreed. Kiwi should have had his hand back on the ground two years ago.
Goodness I hope  
RDJR : 7/27/2013 3:09 pm : link
Pugh beats DD out at RT. please.
micky : 7/27/2013 3:19 pm : link
Conor Orr ‏@ConorTOrr 2m

Curry is walking off the practice field. Walked a little gingerly after diving to break up a pass.
yeah you should NEVER have a Number one star player doing punt returns  
Blue Blood : 7/27/2013 3:20 pm : link
like Deion Sanders.. Rod Woodson.. Percy Harvin..Desean Jackson..Tim Brown...

Giants should see what his skill set is... what if you need an emergency punt returner..
micky : 7/27/2013 3:20 pm : link
Tom Rock ‏@TomRock_Newsday 2m

Bosworth in for Curry, who got up slowly after diving for a PD in 7s.
Ross is absolutely good enough to be a 2nd string CB  
Great White Ghost : 7/27/2013 3:27 pm : link
and that he is ahead of Hosley is to be expected. Hosley has mental breakdowns and is a bit of a runt. Ross is a veteran CB in good health with Physical gifts, intelligence, speed and 2 SB rings.Anyone who wrote him off is gonna be wearing egg before the year is over. He will absolutely contribute this year.One of his biggest problems in the past has been injuries and depression.He isn't injured or depressed this go-round, and is quite happy to be here, " Back where he belongs".

Jayron Hosley
Laron Scott
Junior Mertile
Terrence Frederick
Charles James
Terrell Thomas (PuP)

Aside from the rest of the 1s and 2s, the above is the rest of the Giants CB roster. You wouldn't expect Ross to be ahead of all those guys?? I would.

Coaches like McBride, may have wanted to see just what he has right away.
I believe they want Hosley...  
Ryan : 7/27/2013 3:31 pm : link focus solely on playing in the slot so it may not mean anything that he's not playing the outside with the 2's. If they go to a standard nickel and Ross is in the slot then it says something.
sounds good  
Great White Ghost : 7/27/2013 3:35 pm : link
Not saying Hosley sucks, but rather that I would expect Ross to be a 2nd string Outside CB, no worse than that....
And if Webster doesn't pick it up,  
Great White Ghost : 7/27/2013 3:42 pm : link
he may find Ross nipping at his heels, just saying....
Look, I hope that Ross is very, very successful with Giants BUT:  
Bobby Epps : 7/27/2013 3:42 pm : link
the Giants chose to let him walk in free agency and he was terrible with the Jags last year.

What gives us hope that he should be playing 2d string?

Plus, McBride over Hosley? A FA over last year's 3d pick? It seems to me that Hosley has slipped at this point.
We're all entitled to our opinion  
The Dude : 7/27/2013 3:51 pm : link
and I have major doubts that ross is a serviceable corner going up against the number 2 WR's this league has to offer.
Totally agree on Kiwi  
RobCarpenter : 7/27/2013 3:53 pm : link
I hope the LB experiment is done. He's a much better DE than LB.
Moondwg : 7/27/2013 3:55 pm : link
I wish I had your confidence in Ross, but I've seen him get burnt too many times. He alone should have cost us the game against Dallas last year where Romo missed a wide open Austin for the game. I am more of the Duke's opinion on this one.
the Dude  
Moondwg : 7/27/2013 3:56 pm : link
not the Duke.
Its 4pm practice is over right!  
wgenesis123 : 7/27/2013 4:04 pm : link
No bad news today I hope.
Ross has had more than his fair share of blown coverages, no doubt,  
Great White Ghost : 7/27/2013 4:04 pm : link
and has been bad at times. He has also been very very good for long stretches.Injuries played a big part in that as did his attitude, and I don't see them as a problem at the moment.While he didn't do well with the jags, it is a misrepresentation to say he was "awful". Let's be honest, he was mediocre.He simply wasn't worth what they were paying.

He may well suck and be buried on the depth chart, or even cut, but that would suprise me. His brains didn't just vanish, and he is healthy. He knows the system. He is motivated.If healthy, I'm convinced he contributes.

We could do a lot worse than Ross as a backup CB.

kiwi at left end  
area junc : 7/27/2013 4:18 pm : link
tuck at right end

plans to move jpp 2 the left when he comes back
They did most of the team stuff on the far field  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 4:35 pm : link
So it was hard to get a good view of things.
26.2 : 7/27/2013 4:35 pm : link
I hope kiwi and jpp end up winning the starting DE Jobs.
You don't have to see the number to know it's Wilson  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 4:39 pm : link
He's the only guy that moves like that -so impressive. Hosley did look pretty quick on a punt return though.
Some idiot walked in with an Eagle jersey  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 4:42 pm : link
He really got the crowd going.
It seemed to me Nassib took a lot of reps  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 4:44 pm : link
More than I would have thought. I wonder if they want to give him a legit shot to win the backup job. Just a thought.
I saw Snee doing sprints on the side  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 4:46 pm : link
Maybe Cruz is practicing receiving punts  
CT Charlie : 7/27/2013 4:59 pm : link
to force him to watch the ball into his hands.
Murphy did have a drop or two  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 5:04 pm : link
I saw him redeem himself later with a nice catch though.
I am  
ctc in ftmyers : 7/27/2013 5:07 pm : link
Stoked. Long way to go
So Will Hill can't even practice?  
pjcas18 : 7/27/2013 5:10 pm : link
I thought he could practice, but would be suspended once the season started?

maybe he practiced and I just didn't notice his name.
Word on Hill is that he missed his drug test  
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 5:13 pm : link
I guess you have a certain amount of time after they initially reach out to you to respond and get tested. He was in Georgia and for whatever reason did not get it taken care of. They have places you can go all over the country so it is not a good reason. Not sure if he wasn't checking messages and did not know about it or if he blew off or what, but whatever the case he didn't get himself tested.

Dumb dumb move for a guy with his background.
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 5:15 pm : link
I'm not sure if I saw Hill or not (the defensive guys were not near me) but he can practice.
Thanks, Uber.  
Klaatu : 7/27/2013 6:45 pm : link

camp report? (hint, hint, hint)
UberAlias : 7/27/2013 6:58 pm : link
I didn't write one because I was limited due to my 6 year old and missed a lot. It won't be very detailed, but will write up my impressions.
Eric from BBI : Admin : 7/27/2013 7:04 pm : link
Anything would be appreciated! No worries if you don't. But if you do, please shoot a copy to and I'll post in the camp section.
A few thoughts  
Matt M. : 7/27/2013 7:50 pm : link
1) I love the quote by Coughlin that Weatherford shared. Is this the mantra he will go with all season? Quotes like this always reaffirm why I love Coughlin.

2) I like Reese's comments and attitude to open camp.

3) What a great combo of HC and GM we have.

4) As a LB Kiwi was simply OK. But, last year, all over the DL he made big impact plays. It is great to see him back at DE. I don't care who starts or where. The trio of Tuck, JPP, and Kiwi is still one of the best in the league.

5) I have no problem with Cruz fielding punts. First of all, it seems like right now it is just as an emergency option. but, if he (or anyone else) is good at it, then let them go. field position is huge.

6) Building on #5, I absolutely want Wilson returning kickoffs, regardless of whether or not he starts.
