Aug 18 Why Pat Shurmur is upbeat about the Giants' defense. Before training camp even started, the question of how the Giants defense would eventually pan out was on the top of everyone's minds. The group is young, with first-round draft picks Dexter Lawrence and DeAndre Baker atop the depth chart.

The Giants did much to please Pat Shurmur in their preseason victory against the Chicago Bears last night. But coaches are wont to focus on errors that need correcting, and that's where Shurmur was after viewing the tape of the 32-13 triumph.

Daniel Jones no longer perfect, but still impresses in resilient showing.

Aug 16 Giants' second preseason game the time for Eli Manning to assert himself. The plan is for him to stay on the field longer than the cameo three-play series he lasted last week against the Jets. Coach Pat Shurmur gave Manning one offensive possession, hoping it would last more than an eye-blink. Instead, Shurmur saw almost nothing.
Expect more snaps from Manning and Jones. Between a quick three-and-out and a 59-minute weather delay, quarterbacks Eli Manning and Daniel Jones didn't see as many snaps as were planned last week. While all four quarterbacks are expected to play again, coach Pat Shurmur hopes to get more than one series each from the top two quarterbacks on the depth chart.

Aug 15 Coaches don't like to reveal playing time before preseason games, but Pat Shurmur clued everyone in on his plan to play all four quarterbacks this week, just like he did in the preseason opener.
You might not see Saquon Barkley at all during the preseason, but when the Giants running back takes the field for the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 8, don't be surprised if his role is even much more lethal for opposing defenses.

Why John Mara thinks the Giants are heading in the right direction. No matter what NFL analysts think about the decisions made by Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, one person who is firmly in the 68-year-old general manager's corner is team co-owner John Mara.

Aug 14 Golden Tate will serve four-game suspension after losing appeal. Also, Tate will have $464,705 taken out of his $1.975 million salary he is due in his first season with Big Blue.

John Mara's Giants dream: Daniel Jones 'never sees the field' this season. Clearly, Giants co-owner John Mara is less interested in the delicate dynamic at quarterback and far more concerned with yanking the franchise back toward winning.

Guessing when Giants' Daniel Jones will take Eli Manning's job. Let's allow history to guide the most quintessential 2019 Giants debate: When (or if) first-round pick Daniel Jones will see the field, and how will the franchise end the Eli Manning era.

Aug 13 Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones' NFL career is certainly off to a promising start given his preseason debut last week in which he completed all five pass attempts for 67 yards and 1 touchdown in just one series of play.
Daniel Jones had another impressive day at training camp on Monday, throwing three consecutive touchdown passes, all in different fashion. Of course, we won't know for a while whether Jones has what it takes to be a franchise quarterback.

Aug 12 Eli Manning stomps out talk of competition with strongest practice of training camp. Giants veteran Eli Manning had the type of performance one would expect from a top-tier NFL quarterback on Sunday, his first practice since a three-play outing in the preseason opener against the Jets.
The veteran looked extra sharp, kicking things off with a deep throw to running back Saquon Barkley down the right sideline. He had another pinpoint pass to wide receiver Cody Latimer on the opposite side later in practice. Both were placed perfectly.

T.J. Jones understands the importance of making a first impression. So when he went out in the Giants' preseason opener against the Jets on Thursday night and caught all six of his targets for 72 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kyle Lauletta, Jones kicked off his career in New York on the right foot.

Aug 11 Despite all the attention being paid to Daniel Jones, which is warranted given his importance to the team's long-term future, the biggest 2019 issue that will go a long way to determining how many games the Giants win and lose is their pass defense.

Lifelong Giants fan making surprise case for final roster spot. Effort combined with instinct and good fortune made Jake Carlock a breakout player in the Giants' 31-22 preseason-opening victory over the Jets.

Aug 10 Daniel Jones showed up as The Natural in his preseason debut, and the unmistakable rumble of his thundering footsteps cannot possibly go in one of Eli Manning's ears and out the other. No one is calling Daniel Jones a draft-day reach anymore, only a precocious rookie reaching for Manning's beloved job.

How LB Nate Stupar is 'selflessly' helping change Giants' culture. Stupar, an eight-year NFL veteran who is entering his second season with the Giants after being claimed off waivers six days before the 2018 season opener, says the difference between the vibe around Quest Diagnostics Training Center this spring and summer is night and day from last season.

Three things to watch heading into Thursday's preseason opener against the Jets. Pat Shurmur is keeping things close to the vest regarding playing time for Thursday night's preseason opener.
against the Jets.
Although it's just Week 1 and the projected starters are unlikely to play or may only see the field for a series or two, there's still plenty to watch come Thursday night.

Aug 7 The Giants and Jets square off Thursday in their 51st annual intra-state rivalry game at their shared home MetLife Stadium. The game traditionally is held in Week 3 of the preseason but has been moved to the opener for both teams in 2019. Why?

Pat Shurmur didn't want to disclose who will play or start in the Giants' preseason opener Thursday night, but he did make an exception regarding Daniel Jones. "He's a guy that will play," Shurmur said. "I can tell you that for sure."

Aug 6 Giants release first unofficial depth chart. To no surprise, rookie Daniel Jones is listed as the No. 2 quarterback behind Eli Manning.

In the months leading up to the NFL Draft, quarterback Daniel Jones was criticized again and again by analysts and anonymous NFL personnel for his inferior arm strength. After 16 practices in the spring and two weeks of training camp, Jones' live arm is making the Giants look smart for trusting their own evaluation.

Aug 5 Boom-or-bust case of Giants LB Alec Ogletree: Playmaker for pass defense? Or liability? Because Ogletree is paid like one of the NFL's best, the young Giants defense needs Ogletree to perform like it. That means playing all three downs, including in the nickel formation on passing downs.

Aug 4 The Giants completed their ninth practice in 10 days at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center before a day off on Sunday. It was all about the young cornerbacks and it started with sixth round pick Corey Ballentine.
This has been a strong start to camp for Ballentine, who makes at least one or two impressive plays per practice and seems to be improving as the summer progresses.

Giants guard Will Hernandez is "heartbroken" for the city he called home in college. Twenty people are dead and 26 more injured, according to the governor of Texas, after a shooter opened fire Saturday morning in an El Paso shopping center.

Aug 3 Another day, another high completion percentage from Eli Manning. Manning's strong first two weeks of training camp continued Friday as he completed 10-of-12 passes and threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to trusty tight end Rhett Ellison during the three 11-on-11 periods of practice.
The players were outside and back in full pads for the eighth practice of training camp. It was a more abbreviated practice with a number of players not working with the rest of the team. Every once in a while, even in practice with no tackling, Saquon Barkley reminds everyone why he is special.

Aug 2 This is the time of the year where position and roster battles reach a boiling point across the NFL. There was supposed to be a number of position battles at Giants training camp, though not all of them have quite materialized.
Practice seven of training camp took place at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Thursday. After a spirited practice on Wednesday, Pat Shurmur had the players in shells instead of full pads. It was still an eventful and energetic practice with temperatures in the 80s.

Aug 1 New-look secondary coming together at camp. Everett Withers is in his first season as the Giants' defensive backs coach. Withers' group includes two high-profile offseason acquisitions who start at safety in Jabrill Peppers and Antoine Bethea (a 14-year veteran) and three cornerbacks selected in the NFL Draft: DeAndre Baker in the first round, Julian Love in the fourth and Corey Ballentine in the sixth.

July 31 The Giants' offensive line has been both a weakness of the team and crutch for staunch defenders of Eli Manning, but the veteran quarterback and head coach Pat Shurmur are confident this year's group won't share the struggles of their predecessors.

It never rained at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center on Tuesday, but there was lightning in the vicinity of the practice field, making it unsafe for anyone to be outside. Practice was moved inside where the team held its fifth practice, the third in full pads.

July 30 The impact of having Nate Solder and Mike Remmers on the field together as the starting offensive tackles is obvious even to the untrained eye. Both players missed the spring OTA sessions and minicamp due to injury, and it is good to see both on the field and moving well.

Eli Manning hit hard by ex-Giants' deaths. Finely tuned preparation, ensuring he can anticipate what to expect before it happens is the hallmark of Eli Manning's NFL existence. Yet when an untimely death hit his radar and pierced his heart, Manning could not consult his notes to guide him. He leaned on his innermost feelings, traveled to Edgewood, Ky., on July 10 and attended the memorial service of former teammate Jared Lorenzen.

July 29 Golden Tate's four-game PED suspension, which the Giants' veteran wide receiver is appealing, means that position coach Tyke Tolbert and the rest of the staff have to balance getting Tate's replacements up to speed in the offense vs. continuing to develop Tate's chemistry with quarterback Eli Manning.

Golden Tate suspension gives Giants another easy excuse to make for Eli Manning - if they want it The Giants could be forced to start wide receivers Cody Latimer, Bennie Fowler and Russell Shepard in Week 1.

It's very possible no Giants rookie ever began his NFL career under more trying circumstances than Corey Ballentine. The young man from Washburn University in Kansas plummeted from the euphoria of being selected by the Giants in the sixth round of the NFL Draft to the despair of a tragic and inexplicable shooting hours later in which his best friend was killed and he was wounded.

July 28 Wide receiver Golden Tate is facing a four-game NFL suspension for violation of the league's performance enhancing drug policy. But he says he's innocent. The violation, he says, came from a fertility drug.
The news about Tate came on the heels of a tough stretch for the wide receiver room, which lost Coleman to a torn ACL. Sterling Shepard (thumb) and rookie fifth-round draft pick Darius Slayton (hamstring) have also been sidelined. The Giants add two receivers, and placed Corey Coleman on Injured Reserve.

Former Giants
Victor Cruz again angling for return amid Giants catastrophe. As the Giants continue to lose wide receivers in the opening days of training camp, a former fan favorite once again says he's ready to dance his way back to the Meadowlands.

July 27 Giants general manager Dave Gettleman isn't going to take stock of Daniel Jones' performance every day in training camp. Media and diehard fans will do it for him.
There was pressure on the quarterbacks throughout practice, including appearances in the backfield from Oshane Ximines, Dexter Lawrence, and Carter.
Both Eli Manning and Daniel Jones had sharp practices. Manning's best pass of the day was a deep ball to Golden Tate. Grant Haley came up with a pick on a pass intended for Russell Shepard that bounced off the receiver. Shepard later made a gorgeous catch on a deep post thrown by Jones.

July 26 The first full-squad practice of training camp proved that Giants fans have high expectations for Saquon Barkley. Each time Barkley touched the ball early in practice, the enthusiastic crowd at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center chanted, "MVP, MVP."

The Giants lost the services of one of their starting receivers and top players on Thursday, as Sterling Shepard suffered a fractured thumb in the first practice of training camp. He will be out of action for at least two weeks then evaluated on a week-to-week basis.

Jabrill Peppers hopes to change how people talk about the Odell Beckham Jr. trade. there is one player at Giants training camp this summer who would like to alter the perceptions of that deal, not to mention how it is referred to. A certain safety who, the Giants said at the time, was the key piece in completing the agreement with the Browns.

July 25 How Eli Manning is coping with his Giants QB days being numbered. There will never be another Eli Manning around these parts, though his replacement is here, waiting in the wings. There are not many firsts for someone on the scene as long as Manning, but what he is set to confront this summer is entirely new for him and his team. Daniel Jones will replace Manning. It is only a matter of when.

Eli Manning became the first player in the soon-to-be 95-season history of the Giants to report for a 16th training camp. Hall of Famers Mel Hein and Michael Strahan and former quarterback Phil Simms are the only other Giants to play 15 seasons. Manning has played a franchise-record 232 regular-season games. Strahan is second with 216, a full season behind Manning.

July 24 Coach Pat Shurmur has already declared that Manning is the starter. That means there isn't any real quarterback competition this summer, even though rookie Daniel Jones will be breathing down Manning's neck. Still, all Manning has to do is win games. That will keep him on the field. As long as the Giants are realistically alive for the playoffs, he'll be their quarterback.

Former Giants
Odell Beckham Jr. - There seems to be resentment inside the mind of Beckham over the way he was treated by the Giants, the New York media and the team's fan base.

July 23 Daniel Jones will not miss any time on the field at the start of his first NFL training camp. Jones signed his first NFL contract Monday night, assuring he will practice Tuesday morning with the other rookies at the Giants training facility. The rookies practice for two days before Thursday's first full-scale session with the veterans.

July 22 Dave Gettleman doesn't only need to be right about Daniel Jones. He needs to be right about Pat Shurmur. Because Jones' development will be in Shurmur's hands now. The passing of the torch from Eli Manning -- when and why -- will be determined by Shurmur. Shurmur was deemed to be the right man at the right time to squeeze whatever was left out of Manning's right arm and simultaneously groom his successor one day.

July 21 The Giants defense is going to be a young one in 2019. A very young one. Depending on the percentage of snaps rookie edge rusher Oshane Ximines players, there's a chance that defensive coordinator James Bettcher could start a rookie at every level (nose tackle Dexter Lawrence, Ximines, cornerback DeAndre Baker).

NFC East News
Plenty of questions to answer for Giants' NFC East foes.

July 20 Six reasons Giants will miss playoffs again. Did GM Dave Gettleman actually make defense worse? Linebacker Alec Ogletree has 6.5 career sacks but needs to be more of a pass-rusher on this Giants defense.

Former Giants
Mitch Petrus, 32, died of heat stroke on Thursday at North Little Rock Hospital, according the Pulaski County Coroner, after working outside earlier in the day at his family's shop about 25 miles east of Little Rock.

July 19 Six reasons Giants will return to playoffs. Are you really doubting 'elite' Eli Manning again? Eli Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP, but does he have one last run in him entering his contract year?

July 18 This isn't 2004, and it isn't 2017, and it won't be Ben McAdoo deciding to take a look at Geno Smith at the end of a Giants nightmare of a season. This is 2019, and a reeling franchise has put Eli Manning on notice by finally launching a succession plan that will usher in the Daniel Jones Era, sooner rather than later if Manning doesn't remember how to win football games. Welcome to Eli's Last Stand.

July 17 For the first time in 15 years, the Giants drafted a quarterback in the first round. The presence of Daniel Jones makes this one of the most intriguing story lines in the league, simply because of the debate and the uncertainty of how things will play out.
The Giants have the third easiest schedule in the NFC East and the fifth-easiest in the NFL. However, in the first half alone, the Giants face the defending division champion Dallas Cowboys and Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

July 16 Giants need Saquon Barkley to be what Odell Beckham was not. Gettleman gave up on the tantalizing vision of Beckham and Barkley terrorizing defenses together for years, gave up on Beckham because he was not his idea of a Stepford Giant.

Former Giants
Phil Simms still thinks he had more wins in the tank when the Giants dumped him before the 1994 season. He doesn't think they will make the same mistake with Eli Manning.

July 15 A way-too-early prediction for Giants' 2019 season: Is this the change Big Blue needed? With stars gone, Giants will have a new look heading into the new season.

July 14 Last year, mainly due to injuries, eight different players returned at least one kickoff and six returned at least one punt. Corey Coleman wound up finishing the season with the most kickoff returns (23) and Jawill Davis with the most punt returns (12). Coleman is still on the team but the Giants parted ways with Davis in May.

July 10 The Giants' offense is now Saquon Barkley's. Star power is alive and well in blue with Saquon Barkley in the fold. The guy is too good to be true, with no missteps on or off the field.
Last season, Barkley led the league in total yards from scrimmage, was second among running backs in receiving yards, while playing behind the NFL's No. 23 ranked offensive line.

July 6 One of the biggest deficiencies of the Giants offense last season was in the red zone, which was a proverbial stop sign for quarterback Eli Manning and Co. The Giants produced touchdowns on just 50 percent of trips inside the 20-yard line in 2018, which ranked No. 28 in the NFL. However, one of the few bright spots for the Giants red-zone offense was tight end Evan Engram.

NFC East News
Ranking how NFC East teams are set up for future at offensive line.

July 5 There is no way to replace the game-breaking threat Beckham brought to the field every time he stepped on it. In many ways, Evan Engram must fill some of that void. He presents more of a matchup problem to opposing defenses than any of the wide receivers.

July 4 Giants training camp opens for rookies and select veterans on July 22, and will offer plenty of opportunity for players near the bottom of the roster to carve out roles for the upcoming season. General manager Dave Gettleman's second offseason saw plenty of turnover in the starting lineup, with potentially 11 new starters and even more turnover lower on the depth chart.

Former Giants
Jared Lorenzen was admitted to the hospital over the weekend and underwent dialysis after falling ill with an infection that affected his kidney and heart. But, after doctors tried to save his life, Lorenzen succumbed to to his ailments and passed away Wednesday.

Jared Lorenzen's role in getting Eli Manning ready for the biggest play of his own career should be remembered, and appreciated.

July 3 During this spring's OTA and minicamp practices, first-round draft pick, No. 17 overall, rookie Dexter Lawrence took the vast majority of first-team snaps. The Giants are counting on him to not only plug the middle against the run but also give an anemic pass rush a boost.

Which NFC East rival poses the biggest threat to the Giants winning the division? Even though the Cowboys will be formidable in their title defense, the Giants have proven they can beat Dallas, either at home or on the road. The Eagles are a different story.

July 1 Wide receiver Sterling Shepard, fresh off signing a long-term contract extension, is in line for an expanded role in 2019 and could be on the cusp of a career-season, following this spring's trade of Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns.

Which 2019 opponent will be tougher than people think? There are a lot of good candidates for this since the Giants play against so many teams with young quarterbacks, who always have a chance to take a jump and elevate their teams.

June 30 Eli Manning says Giants' offense can be better, even without Odell Beckham. Manning acknowledged that Beckham is tough to replace, but he said Saquon Barkley may have an even more productive second season, and the Giants' receiving corps remains strong.

June 29 Special Report - There must be times when Giants' general manager Dave Gettleman would like to pick up one of the voluminous scouting books from his desk and toss it out the window. He is constantly riddled by doubt and uncertainty, not to mention criticism.
Who to release? Who to sign? How much to offer on a new contract? Will another team embark on a raiding mission and snatch away one of the players he is counting on? Will he spend too much to keep that player? Did he do the right thing in the draft?
Was he correct in assuming the seven-year veteran with an existing injury can still play and will be of help to the Giants? The 68-year-old native of Boston, despite all his accomplishments and achievements in a 34-year NFL career, is often criticized and questioned for not only his decisions but the abrupt manner in which he makes them.

Eli Manning is trusting what he has been told, not what he might have heard through interpretation. The Giants told Manning he is their starting quarterback to open the 2019 season, and so Manning is not looking at this summer as an audition to keep the job he first claimed midway through the 2004 season.

Former Giants
Jared Lorenzen is battling health issues that have led to him being admitted to a hospital. After Lorenzen's UK career ended, he played three years in the NFL with the New York Giants and Indianapolis Colts.
