Led by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo, the Giants rebuilt offensive structure received gushing reviews throughout the offseason program. In speaking with Giants.com’s John Schmeelk on Monday, wide receiver Victor Cruz continued to heap praise, essentially stating that once the O begins feeling its oats, there will be no slowing it down: (transcript from Giants101.com)
“I think we’re right at the midway point,” Cruz told Giants.com. “I think we’re at a point where everything is in and we’re just getting acclimated, we’re learning the offense and we’re getting comfortable with it now. And I think going into training camp that’s going to be our goal — getting comfortable with the offense so we can be full-throttle come Week 1.
“It’s going to be high-octane. I think it will be characterized as something that is hard to beat because it will keep defenses off balance. Once we get this thing rolling and clicking, I think it has the chance to be something special.”
High-powered speed of operation and unpredictability are qualities the Giants’ fanbase has been clamoring for. Clearly Ben McAdoo will bring distinctive new elements to the Giants offense — otherwise known as MODERNIZATION. Big Blue Nation is rightfully foaming at the mouth.

In other Giants news on the opposite side of the rock: according to the NY Daily News, Stevie Brown expects to be ‘100 percent’ for training camp after missing last season with an ACL tear:
“Most recently, corner Terrell Thomas returned from a second straight ACL tear (and the third of his football career) to survive the entire 2013 season. But the Giants treated Thomas with care throughout the season, routinely resting him in both training camp and the regular season to preserve his battered knee.”
“It’s not a thing at all,” Brown said Tuesday, before serving as a coach at Ravens defensive tackle Chris Canty‘s annual youth football camp at George Washington HS. “I trust it 100 percent.
That seems like some great news for the New York Football Giants. With the organization stepping away from Will Hill‘s literal trials and tribulations, having Stevie Brown at 100% will allow them to move forward from Hill without looking back at the missing talent (to a degree). If Brown struggles to regain the aforementioned trust in his knee — then so will the Giants secondary.
