Happy Monday, New York Giants fans! We are now only one week away from the start of training camp and only eight days away from the first official practice. Allow us to help you pass some time with the following morning headlines to enjoy over your first coffee.

New York Giants Ranked 21st in NFL Future Power Rankings

The overview: The Giants fell 11 spots overall after a 2013 season that seemed to confirm in analysts' minds that the team has not drafted well, its roster has suffered dramatically and it could no longer overcome these shortcomings through coaching. New York suffered double-digit drops in non-QB roster, drafting and front office.

Somehow, the methodology produced a higher score (74.35 compared to 72.08) for the Giants this year than last — yet Big Blue still managed to drop 14 spots. Apparently, the future isn't so bright anymore even though the Giants improved year over year in roster, quarterback and coaching.

Jay-Z Pays Visit to Giants Locker Room

The self-proclaimed greatest rapper alive was in the Giants' building, and he apparently stopped by their locker room to snap this picture while he was there.

Jay Z was at MetLife Stadium performing with his wife Beyonce on Friday and Saturday. Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was reportedly in attendance Friday night.

Cruz posted this picture with the caption: "Mi Casa Su Casa. #Familia"

Eli Manning ‘Reenergized’ by New Offense

Eli Manning intends to improve his numbers from last season, a disappointing stretch in his career. He also recognizes the urgency of learning McAdoo’s system after spending 10 years under previous coordinator Kevin Gilbride. Despite two Super Bowl victories in that decade, Manning maintains that he is inspired to return to form in 2014.

“It’s reenergized me,” he said. “I’m trying to speed up the process of getting comfortable in the new system. I don’t have 10 years. I have a few months.”

    Look closely, there’s a couple of Coronas in McBrides locker.

  2.  BBWC says:

    IMO, I think we dropped 11 spots because of the large turnover of players, too many uncertainties. Not that that we drafted poorly.

  3.  G Fan since Ninteen Forty Eight says:

    Means nothing! Where were we ranked in the last two SB years?
    Just some talking heads try to justify their pay.
