After missing the playoffs the past two seasons, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants aren’t one of the morning-line favorites to get back to the postseason.
Rex Ryan has not-so-fond memories of the last time the Jets faced the Giants. Well, other than winning a preseason game that earned his team a Snoopy-topped bronze trophy.
Eli Manning understands the concern about the New York Giants’ offense with the regular season three weeks away. The guys entrusted with making new coordinator Ben McAdoo’s unit work have done little in the last two preseason games.
Although the performance against Indy has led to widespread consternation about Manning and his first-unit group, one must understand that McAdoo is keeping things under wraps.
A day after the Jets were doused by members of the Cortlandville Fire Department, the Giants took their turns answering the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, albeit in a bit more subtle fashion.

Hundreds of thousands of marchers and onlookers packed the avenue on a warm sunny day. The theme of this year’s parade was “One Nation, Many Voices.”
When real life invades sports, that’s when the true measure of an athlete is taken. The rest is a storybook.
Victor Cruz is eager to show off the Giants’ new offense. But that doesn’t mean it was easy watching former coordinator Kevin Gilbride exit East Rutherford.
A number of mock drafts have the Giants taking North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron with their 12th pick on May 8. They may be right. But Big Blue has other needs, too.
You have to admire Cruz for his willingness to subject himself to the rigors of backfield work, even if it’s just for the sake of gimmickry. But there’s no way the kid should play even a snap at running back.
