Giants worked on lot of red zone and goal line stuff today, especially with @ShaneSmith821 at FB. @Davis_Webb5 + @Wanye_Kanye also did well

Graziano ESPN: Ranking Super Bowl champs' offseasons: Is Patriots' 2017 best ever?
"13. 2007 New York Giants Super Bowl title: XLII
Hall of Fame defensive end Michael Strahan retired following the Giants' Super Bowl upset of the unbeaten Patriots. Edge rusher Osi Umenyiora suffered a season-ending injury during the offseason. The team traded tight end Jeremy Shockey, who was in the coaches' doghouse anyway, to the Saints and lost Reggie Torbor, Kawika Mitchell, William Joseph and Gibril Wilson in free agency. The positives included a draft that brought in Kenny Phillips, Terrell Thomas and Mario Manningham. And the 2008 Giants posted the best record of any Tom Coughlin Giants team ever at 12-4 before losing to the division-rival Eagles in the playoffs."

"New York Giants& #8232;Fullback Merwin Hodel, minus-15 yards
Hodel is a long-forgotten player who lasted a mere two games with the Giants during their only losing season in a 15-year stretch from 1949 to 1963. In his first action, Hodel rushed five times for 11 yards and caught one pass for minus-5 in a blowout loss to the Eagles. His next game, a 14-10 loss to the Steelers, resulted in one touch: a catch for minus-10. The Giants had seen enough at that point. And that’s how you arrive at a career with minus-4 yards from scrimmage. Sorry, Merwin."

Receiving the brunt of the criticism last year were the two young tackles, Ereck Flowers on the left side and Bobby Hart on the right. Both struggles with their technique, particularly in ass protection, leaving frustrated fans pining for the Giants to make a splash in free agency despite having limited cap resources to do so.

Although, when you think about it, they do need to do a better job protecting Eli's ass.
Eric from BBI : Admin : 6/15/2017 9:01 am : link
the Stapleton article on Engram is good.
Interesting that Peters got a contract extension...

in Philly. Read the article about the ripples that sends through their OL and what it means. Philly spending a lot of money on their OT's now.
