Game one of the Giants pre-season is in the books, and boy was it good to have GMEN football back!

While it was an 18-13 win for Big Blue, it was obvious that there is still much work for the team to do through the rest of training camp, especially if they hope to find themselves back in the playoffs this season.  As with most games in the NFL there were some good moments/areas for the Giants and some ugly ones.

In what I hope will be a weekly post for the rest of the season, I’m going to take a look at three players or areas of the game that were positive for the Giants, and three areas that were negative, or as I will call it from here on out, Big Blue Ups & Downs.

I hope you all enjoy it and I look forward to seeing some of you add your own ups & downs from last nights game in the comments below.  To get started, just head to the next page.
