SPOTLIGHT:

Rookie Randle looks forward to more career firsts

Posted by Dan Salomone on September 24, 2012 – 5:33 pm

Ramses Barden wasn’t the only receiver to benefit from the bump up after Hakeem Nicks (foot) and Domenik Hixon (concussion) were scratched from Thursday night’s game against Carolina.

Rueben Randle, the Giants’ second-round draft choice, got his first career catch under his belt. While it officially went down as a quiet four-yard pickup late in the first quarter of a 36-7 road win, every stat line has to start somewhere.

“It is worth something being a rookie and getting your first catch,” Randle said on Monday. “But I’m just looking forward to more.”

His first reception was also the first time he had been targeted by Eli Manning this season, and Randle knew there would be a good possibility of it coming in Charlotte given the injuries at the position.

“I just went through it like a normal week,” Randle said. “I just go out every day and get better and try to continue to build trust each and every week with the players around me and also the coaching staff.”

He added: “I’m picking up each and every week, that’s my objective. I’m just trying to progress through things and play faster each and every week as the season goes along. Then hopefully by midseason I’ll be clicking.”

Meanwhile, returning punts has helped the LSU product build a comfort level on an NFL field despite the lack of reps on offense. Randle assumed the role in Week 2 after the coaching staff went with the veteran Hixon in the opener. He has returned three punts for an average of 9.7 yards with a long of 12 (in addition to four fair catches).

“I enjoy returning punts,” Randle said. “That’s a big play for your team. It just gives you confidence that your team has the faith in you to field the ball, get the ball back to the offensive end. That’s a big bonus.”

Rookie Blog: CB Jayron Hosley

Posted by Giants.com on September 24, 2012 – 1:14 pm

Cornerback Jayron Hosley was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round this past April. Throughout the season, the Virginia Tech product and Florida native will provide an inside look at his journey of making it in the NFL. This week’s post begins with the Giants’ first road trip of the season to Carolina, where Hosley made his second start and notched an interception before halftime of the 36-7 victory over the Panthers on Thursday night.

It’s a business trip. From the flight down to meetings at the hotel, everyone basically focuses in on the game. It was good to get on the road. You want to go on the road and get a win, and we went out there with that mentality. We had a short week so we didn’t get as much time to prepare, but we spent a lot of time getting in a lot of mental work. We were ready. I was ready. It was our first official road game and I was looking forward to it. I think it went pretty well.

Coming to the Giants, I knew they were road warriors and I liked that. Like in college, I always look forward to going with my boys into another team’s territory and getting a win. When you’re at home, you’ve got to defend your home. But when you go on a road trip, you want to make that your home, too, in a sense. It’s just one of those things that everyone wants to compete and fight. When you go to another team’s territory, it’s like we’re here to take something.

It was a game that, being that it was my second start, I felt like I have to go out here and prove something. I still have a lot to prove, and I was just doing my job. Everyone was just doing their job. Everybody was playing with one accord. It just so happened that it opened up for me to get the interception. We had great pressure up front, which allowed me to make that play. I think overall it was a pretty good second start for me and something to grow off of.

When I was drafted, I couldn’t say that I’d already have two starts in the NFL, not at all. Really for me, it was just making the team and making my name on the team and kind of getting that respect by doing what’s expected. It played out well for me though and I’m just continuing to work. Keep it humble. Keep it focused.

Daily Blitz: Coughlin profiled in ‘A Football Life’

Posted by Dan Salomone on September 24, 2012 – 9:00 am

If you’ve ever seen or heard a Tom Coughlin press conference, you know he doesn’t reveal much. That’s why A Football Life is must-see TV this week as the Emmy-nominated series profiles the Giants’ two-time Super Bowl champion head coach. The Coughlin episode premiers on Wednesday, September 26 at 8 PM ET on NFL Network.

While the one-hour show does chronicle Coughlin’s football career, it also captures a rare glimpse of his off-field life, highlighting his wife, Judy, and his devotion to his charity, The Jay Fund.

Aside from Coughlin’s, here is a list of some of the voices included in the episode:

Judy Coughlin – Tom’s wife

Kate Snee – Tom’s daughter

Bill Parcells – Former New York Giants head coach

Michael Strahan – Former New York Giants defensive end

Jim Boeheim – Syracuse University men’s basketball coach

Larry Csonka – Hall of Fame running back

Fred Taylor – Former Jacksonville Jaguars running back

Ernie Accorsi – Former New York Giants general manager

Doug Flutie – Played for Tom Coughlin at Boston College, 1981-83

Following are select quotes from Tom Coughlin: A Football Life:

“When people are sick or in need, that’s when his emotions, his faith, his strength shows the most.” – Judy Coughlin

“I’ve gone from a guy who wouldn’t play for him for one year, to a guy who wouldn’t play for anybody else if I had to go back and play football. He wants to win. That’s his bottom line, and he’s had to change his methods to get there. I’m glad he changed it, that we were able to get to the mountaintop with him.” – Michael Strahan

“When you win in New York, it’s something special and the people never forget you.” – Bill Parcells

“At Syracuse, he kept notes on everything. [He is the] first person I ever saw in athletics that kept notes on everything. A few years later after I left Tommy’s presence, I met a guy that was just like that. His name was [Don] Shula.” – Larry Csonka

“I could be rude [with the media]. I could pull some of the [Bill] Parcells stuff, but I couldn’t get away with it. I wasn’t Parcells. They make light of it, but they’re not making light of it with me.” – Tom Coughlin on his relationship with the New York media early in his Giants head coaching tenure

“When John Madden calls you, it brings it right to mind again that that’s really what football is: it’s sport. What is sport all about? We’re trying to win. That’s what this league is about, is competitive greatness and always putting your best foot forward.” – Coughlin
