The Giants trotted onto the practice field for the fourth consecutive day on Friday — this time donning shoulder pads. Hits were plentiful and pads were smacking during drills, but the miscues took center stage: overthrows, dropped passes, poor QB reads and plenty of balls on the ground. Don’t look now, but the Giants square off against Buffalo in eight days at Fawcett Stadium. It’s time to shake off the rust before Tom Coughlin starts spewing venom permanently.
Many drops and fumbles and Tom Coughlin explodes: “Stop dropping the G-D ball!” he screams.

UDFA defensive end, Jordan Stanton, on his way to proving that 11.5 tackles for loss and 8.0 sacks for James Madison weren’t cupcake stats. He’s making noise early in camp and the beats writers are taking full notice.
Calling it now: this year’s Ojomo fan favorite award-winner: Jordan Stanton. Another pressure coming off the edge. #NYG

David Wilson took his first true shot since clearance from neck surgery. Afterwards, Flip was quoted as saying, “thank you, ma’am may I have another?” (not a true story)
Big step for David Wilson. Took a hit from Cooper Taylor in practice today. “That felt good,” he said. “I definitely know I’m cleared now.”

While Ryan Nassib does have the arm, he continues to remind Big Blue on a daily basis that his instincts for the position are severely lacking. And that he’s intellectually in over his head. Look on the bright side… CB Charles James continues to show out.

The media insists Andre Williams has a ton of work do, and that may be somewhat accurate, but in Giants ‘short on talent’ backfield alignment he’s not far from playing time.
Williams with the 1s to start no-huddle. Jennings goes in for goal-line. Role reversal.

Temple University’s Brandon McManus is showing distance proficiency and big time accuracy thus far at camp (8/8). Yes, Josh Brown… you should feel threatened.
Brandon McManus is making field goals with ease. The rookie has a huge leg.

In an attempt to lighten the mood following a rough day at the office, Dan Fox did what any Notre Dame UDFA would do:
