Giants.com takes you around the locker room, giving you the pulse of the defending Super Bowl champs:
QB Eli Manning spoke about how the start of the NFL regular season is drawing near.
“Obviously, you still have a few more pre-season games to go. The second one, you’ll play a little bit more extended time with the starters. We’re also looking forward to that. We’re just looking forward to being in our own stadium and playing a game.”
The players returned to the Timex Performance Center on Thursday for their first practice since training camp in Albany, and RB Ahmad Bradshaw is eager to get back into the swing of things.
“It’s always good to be back home. We have great facilities here, so I can’t wait to get back to them.”
He’s also eager to get the running game going.
“That’s the plan. In the running back room, we want to just get started and be a spark to this offense.”
Training camp is all about evaluating personnel. WR Victor Cruz was asked if any other receivers have jumped out to him.
“Ironically enough it’s been a little bit of everyone. Ramses [Barden] has had a great training camp, [Jerrel] Jernigan has had a great training camp, and [Rueben] Randle’s been doing some good things. It’s going to be tough for these coaches, I’m glad I’m not a coach or anybody working up top because it’s going to be tough to pick one of those guys or even two of those guys to be our third and fourth receiver.”
