Merritt says that was the first time he really saw Taylor play. Called him more "masculine" this year. #Giants
Reese might have found himself another

Diamond in the rough at WR with Corey Washington...even TC is impressed with him in camp
A lot of talent it would seem at the WR position  
ImaGiant86 : 8/5/2014 12:48 pm : link
We've got some hungry young players (Harris & Washington) and some vets who are trying to prove their worth (Holiday & Manningham).

It's going to be fun to watch the four of them compete for two roster spots.

Safety position is going to be another one to keep an eye on with Taylor and Berhe both playing good games. Demps may find himself on the outside quickly.

Is he one stinger away from retirement? Or is his condition not as severe?
odd Tweet from Ranaan re:Eli about Wilson  
GIANTSr01 : 8/5/2014 1:01 pm : link
considering Eli's brother had a similar experience.
Has Washington...  
BillKo : 8/5/2014 1:01 pm : link
been doing well in camp? Sometimes you get lured in by a guy making one play in preseason.

"Soup" has been all over the news, but what about Washington?
when they say  
GIANTSr01 : 8/5/2014 1:04 pm : link
"there will be 2 new installations to the offense this week..." are they referring to new plays or new formations/packages?

not getting the love he deserves. This kid is not a bust and has been making a load of catches since last season.

Yup, and he's dangerous after the catch too. Problem is he's behind Cruz in the slot, is likely too short to be a standout on the outside like Randle, and they just drafted a shiny new toy (ODB). But I think they need to find a way to get him touches in space each week.

what's odd about it? Cooper had to leave the game too.

Just a weird question I guess. I'm sure this isn't the first time Eli's had to think about "leaving the game early due to injury".
I thought Taylor did well also

Was surprised at all the negative comments yesterday. I saw him make two drive-ending plays (the run and tackle before the sticks on one was Will Hill impressive). He was around the ball all night. His wiff block on specials doesn't bother me so much as I hope he turns into a player at safety, not OL.

While I'm not overly concerned about the special teams whiff, he's at best the 3rd safety which means he's going to need to be a major special teams contributor. So he needs to correct whatever happened there.

I agree with the others about the tweets

I think he has a great chance to make the team. To me it's between him and Manningham, and right now Harris has the lead.
