Just had our explanation meeting with officials. Lots of interesting changes. To me, emphasis on taunting penalties will be huge. #nyg

Tom Rock & #8207;@TomRock_Newsday 7m
Foul has 3 components: Lining up an opponent, lowering head, and delivering blow with crown. Change the angle and it's clean.

Tom Rock & #8207;@TomRock_Newsday 8m
Interesting point made in officiating meeting: Easiest way for runner to avoid penalty on lowering head is to change the angle at last sec.

Officials explained that spinning ball or signaling a first down can be considered taunting if it appears to be directed at someone. #nyg

NFL needs to relax on the taunting stuff.
Modus Operandi : 8/3/2013 11:20 am : link
The idiotic first down signaling. Its even worse when down by a 4th hideout. But penalizing for it? I think that's taking the taunting thing too far.
That's a bullshit rule

Diehl has played very poor  
hitdog42 : 8/3/2013 12:49 pm : link
for 2 years, but it is great to see he changed some things up over the offseason and is in great shape. If he plays well enough to stay on the field then good for him.

It goes without saying.

Diehl -

GmanND : 8/3/2013 1:20 pm : link
weight wise? I think it's around 305 (not sure). I think Brewer is the only potential RT that is currently the typical dimensions the Giants prefer. It's a shame he hasn't shown more.

i remember the first and only time the officials thru a taunting flag for spiking the ball after a catch

shockey against green bay we were driving and that cost us the game!

i bet the giants are the one that are going to be called for this ..

cruz needs to watch the first down signalling

Nice job by Nassib stepping up in pocket in 11s. Throws a little behind Chase Clement. Dropped.
Did Diehl say

"couldn't care less" or "could care less"?

My opinion of him depends on the answer.

Coughlin said he was told by Albany mayor that if indoor facility was only factor in moving camp back to NJ, they'd build one up there.

Jerry Jennings (current Albany Mayor) is retiring (and I doubt his successor will spend money on an Indoor facility, considering financial situation Albany is in).

It's possible UA might do it, since they could use a replacement for the bubble they have have now (it could serve a dual purpose, indoor football field and new Basketball Arena). UA does have the money, and the new football stadium is just about finished (and REALLY's a link.)
I wonder if Kiwi standing up

Is it me, or has Louis Murphy had a very quiet camp?

Prince Amukamara breaks up a deep pass intended for WR Louis Murphy #GiantsCamp -

Nicks, Cruz and Randle are making plays, I've even heard Barden's name in the daily "Top 5," and the guys way down the depth chart are catching bombs from Nassib & Carr, but I think this is the first time I've heard Murphy's name.
Murphy's been mentioned a few times.

Yeah Murphy has gotten mostly positive reviews

One report said how crisply he runs his routes.
Glad Diehl is motivated amd ready to go.  
j_rud : 8/3/2013 4:42 pm : link
He's a fighter and he has been since day one, I think even his harshest critics would agree that he's not going to give up his spot without a fight. But while he can use the critics and "haters" as motivation truth is Dave Diehl is one of the most popular Giants of the last decade, loved by fans and respected by the media because he came in as an unheralded mid rounder, clawed his way into the starting lineup as a rookie, and helped the franchise to two of its finest moments. The criticism isn't personal, it's because he simply wasn't playing good football.

I don't care who wins the spot, I just want solid play from the RT position again.
Man... very few practice tweets

spinned the ball when the redskins converted that 3rd down

Wants to eliminate actions they see as taunting do it. I think it's bull crap, but the refs don't need another set of rules they can interpret however they feel.

That sounds strange.

Didn't have a Riley Cooper update today!

They suck, Ralph probably keeps wondering why he's been on the beat for 10 plus years without a promotion, Ebernezer Samuel is already better then him.

Thanks for the horrid update beat reporters (besides Pat and Tom Rock), we as fans want football updates, not tabloid nonsense
