New York Giants: Monday Giantisms

New York Giants: 4-0

The New York Giants are 4-0 in the NFL preseason. On paper, that sounds great.

However, in exactly two weeks, the G-Men will be heading to Motor City to take on the Detroit Lions.

That’s right, Monday Night Football is just around the corner. Will the New York Giants offense be ready? Will the defensive secondary be ready for Calvin “Megatron” Johnson?
Regardless of the genuine answer. The genuine reality is that they MUST be ready, or they will lose. The New York Giants are one team that can’t afford to stumble out the gate like last year. 0-6 starts out as 0-1, and that can’t happen this season against the Lions to kick-off the year.

New York Giants: Two Weeks

It’s true, think about that… two weeks. That’s all the Giants have left. One more warm-up game against the New England Patriots and then the practice is over and the records are for real. Have the Giants done enough to prepare on offense to keep up with the Detroit Lions… better yet, will they win?

The answer comes in 14 Days.

New York Giants: Roster Cuts

You might wonder why the Giants aren’t in a hurry to trim their roster down. Just keep in mind they have a game this week and you don’t want to play a lot of your starters in your fifth preseason game… so, it becomes and interesting situation tomorrow on cut day. As they have to keep enough players to compete against the Patriots depth. [Side note: If the Patriots win this preseason game, do their fans feel redeemed for the two Super Bowl losses?]

That said, the Giants are making all those important decisions on the morrow. Who they will cut, who they will keep as they trim towards the final 53 over the next week or so. The answers are coming soon, Giants Nation. Stay tuned… in the mean time:
