New York Giants Wednesday Morning Storylines: Big Blue Has Worst Quarterbacks in NFC East?

Happy Wednesday, New York Giants fans! As we creep up on the July 4th holiday, it moves us that much closer to the start of NFL training camps and the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game. Tick Tock, Tick Tock. In the mean time, please enjoy these headlines over your morning coffee.

Do Giants, Eagles, Cowboys or Redskins Have Better Quarterbacks?

1. Philadelphia Eagles
2. Dallas Cowboys
3. New York Giants
4. Washington Redskins

This was almost impossible to rank, and the margin between first and last was incredibly slim. For me, the Eagles have the best quarterback for the 2014 season because Nick Foles, despite being somewhat of a product of his system, seems like the surest bet not to flop. While he may not repeat last season's numbers (27 TDs, 2 INTs), he's the type of cerebral pocket passer that succeeds in the NFL.

Blog Bits: Running Back Andre Williams

Q: Coming out of college, a knock on you was your pass receiving abilities. How have you progressed in that area?

A: I think I definitely progressed in that area. That’s the feedback I’m getting from the coaches as well, but there’s definitely always work that I can do, so that’s definitely going to be a focus the rest of this offseason into training camp.

Zak DeOssie Hosts Event for Newark-Based Mentoring Program

Zak DeOssie has had plenty of mentors in his life, starting with his father, former Giants linebacker Steve DeOssie.

There were high school coaches, family members, teachers, friends and front office members all through college and the pros who helped the 30-year-old through a career where he's won a pair of Super Bowl rings and made two separate Pro Bowl appearances.

That's why he didn't think twice about joining the Newark Mentoring Movement, a program headed by executive director Aaron Martin, son of long-time Giants defensive end George Martin.

"When you look back on your life and who made an impact, I mean, we had a mentoring program at Brown which was paramount to me getting through there, and even in high school, I went to a really challenging high school and the guy who paid for my scholarship, without him I wouldn't have gotten through it. Every coach, every teacher has been a mentor. It made me realize that getting to be a part of the Newark Mentoring Movement was a way to continue the cycle."

    Here’s what we should expect to see: simpler, quicker, less stressful on the offensive line, more likely to allow receivers who are not Rhodes Scholars to thrive thanks to fewer reads, fewer interceptions because coordination of the QB’s and receivers’ reads need not be as precise, and much better use of the 10-20 yards beyond the line-of-scrimmage than has been the case for a number of years.

    When you combine all that with some excellent running backs and Eli’s ability to throw the ball well over the top, you certainly could have something special. It may take another season to reach its full potential, but this team should be a lot more fun to watch in 2014. The offense had become sclerotic. That’s certainly going to change.

    My gut feel is that McAdoo is ticketed to be the next head coach and that he’ll be in that spot within a few years, provided he learns enough under Coughlin in 2014 and perhaps 2015. While there’s no doubt TC wants to go out a winner, I don’t think he’s going to want to coach much longer, regardless of his current stance. I’m about his age, and as the work stays grueling it starts to wear you down and make you long for some time off. I think a nice sinecure of Special Consultant sounds about right by 2016, if not sooner.

    I think you’re right about McAdoo. I said the same thing a little while back and was told I was wrong. In fact I was given a guarantee that I was wrong.

    I suppose based on last years results that these QB rankings may or may not be correct .Its an opinion and like a nose , everyone has one (yeah , I know , but I didnt want to get censored )
    But , with the simplified routes for the receivers and the shortened passes for Eli , THIS year is going to change that completely . One thing nobody mentions is the effect of the wind in MetLife stadium . With the shorter passes , you can be guaranteed that Elis INT rate is going to drop dramatically .
