Thomas McGaughey said they're not backing off Jabrill Peppers as a returner despite additions. He said Dave Gettleman and Joe Judge have brought in a lot of players with returning experience, which gives them options and makes your football team better through competition.

"We need to score more points." No fucking shit. I was all for hiring JG but I'm worried he is just not the OC I thought he would be. If this offense struggles with all this fire power I don't see him finishing the season. That said, with Saquon healthy, a tad better developed OL, KG, Toney, Rudolph and Ross it should be MUCH better, top 10, not bottom 10.

Daniel Jones and Kenny Golladay were doing some goal line passing drills with no defenders and Golladay was catching every one, including a few in the corner of the end zone.

Kelvin Benjamin was also there and he dropped a pass with no defender. #Giants

Great sign if he's putting Bradberry in the blender. He's going to be a matchup nightmare for teams.

@DDuggan21
Uneventful practice for Kadarius Toney, which is a positive development. There was a Kyle Rudolph sighting. The tight end, who is rehabbing after foot surgery, came out to the field in a helmet but only watched. Rookie CB Aaron Robinson continues to be held out of drills.

Dan Duggan

@DDuggan21
Replying to @DDuggan21
Andrew Thomas, who had ankle surgery early in the offseason, appeared to be on a pitch count. Nate Solder got one series at LT in a team period. TE Nakia Griffin-Stewart left midway through practice with a trainer.

@JordanRaanan
Kadarius Toney had a nice practice. He’s working primarily w/Mike Glennon and most of non-starters as he’s eased into mix. But you can see the talent that made him first-rounder. The way he gets in + out of breaks is impressive. Daniel Jones called him “twitchy” and “explosive.”

@RVacchianoSNY
Rookie WR Kadarius Toney made it through all of practice, and it was a good one for him. His quickness was obvious, and he made a few nice catches along the sideline.

WR John Ross also was back for at least part of practice after missing yesterday. So was TE Kelvin Benjamin.

"We need to score more points... if not, its my ass."

Never said he's wrong or dumb, dude. Just that I am not as high on him as I once was, I don't have the same level of faith in him as I do in PG and I believe if the team struggles on offense JG will be and should be on the hot seat, thats all.
