New York Giants Tuesday Morning Storylines: Buffalo Bills, Big Blue Get a Head Start

Happy Tuesday, New York Giants fans! We are now inside of one week until Big Blue reports to training camp and exactly a week from their first practice. To once again help you pass some time, here's a look at a few morning headlines to enjoy over your coffee.

Bills, Giants Can Use Head Start

The New York Giants and Buffalo Bills are perfect teams to meet in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game and be the first to open training camp.

These are franchises with much riding on this season. The extra week of camp and extra preseason game can help them determine if they are heading in the right direction.

The Giants also are at a crossroads. They have their two recent Super Bowls wins (2007, 2011), but they've missed the playoffs four of the past five years, including the past two. Tom Coughlin has been the right coach for this proud franchise, but missing the playoffs for three straight years could make ownership start thinking about the team's coaching future. I wouldn't say Coughlin is on the hot seat. The owners know how good he is as their franchise's leader; he probably has two years to turn it around.

Blog Bits: Tight End Adrien Robinson

Q: Here we are, new year, new opportunity. Besides being healthy and perhaps a little lighter, what do you think has been the biggest change for you that you feel will give you an edge in this competition?

A: I would say my maturity as a player and as a professional. Being on time, having extra meetings with coach throughout the offseason as they’ve been allowed by the CBA – I want to show Coach Coughlin and everyone that I’m serious and I want to win a job, so that would definitely be the biggest difference. I don’t feel like I’m looked at as a kid or a rookie anymore, so it’s time to step up.

NFC East Roster Rankings: Giants, Eagles Split Top Defensive Honors

There is some debate about who has the best defensive talent in the NFC East heading into this season. The Giants and Eagles each have some selling points.

After breaking it down position by position and adding up the points, Eliot had the Eagles with a slim edge over the Giants. Jordan had the Giants with a slim edge over the Eagles.

Really, more than anything, it's indicative of the lack of defensive talent on the Redskins and Cowboys. It was agreed upon that the Cowboys (minus DeMarcus Ware, Sean Lee and Jason Hatcher) were basically devoid of defensive talent … everywhere! The Redskins only had a few bright spots.

    Sounds like Adrien Robinson is not the sharpest knife in the drawer and also had a serious maturity problem. Probably explains a lot in regard to his playing time. This is the year he’d better take a leap forward or he’ll just be another of those kids with talent who wash out of the league because they can’t be professionals. I’m REALLY glad Reese went out and got Fells and Davis. They may not be world-beaters but at least they know how to play in this league.

    As for defenses, it’s almost comical what is going on in Dallas. Their offense (which should be good) may have to score 35 points each game to stay competitive. By all rights they should be fighting the Skins for the basement in the NFC East.

      But he is the new JPP. Wonder how he did on his test. Don’t they give these guys mental as well as physical therapy. Should be part of the contract. (Especially for their sake). Heck! If you paid me 500K when I was 21 I would have blown it all and would have been physically unfit for the draft.
