Every Friday, we’re asking some Giants players what’s playing in their headphones. This is what they had to say this week before they travel to San Francisco to take on the 49ers:
WR Ramses Barden
Nas – ‘Hero’
“I started listening to it during my senior year at Cal Poly and that’s just how I felt. I wanted to embody that hero persona for my teammates when I was in college.”
LS Zak DeOssie
Y.N. Rich Kids – ‘Hot Cheetos and Takis’
“It’s just a fantastic song. I love Cheetos and I don’t know what Takis are…but I’m very interested in finding out what they are.”
LB Mark Herzlich
Kanye West, Jay-Z, Big Sean – ‘Clique’
“That song, Clique by Kanye. I love that.”
G Mitch Petrus
Vikings of the North Atlantic (Mitch’s band) – ‘We Were Dreamers’
“I guess I’m partial to my band, and I like that song, it’s my favorite song. It’s a little bit of my own creation, so that’s why I’m proud of it.”

The views expressed in this article are not of the New York Football Giants but those of an independent Fantasy Expert.
Last Week: 141 yards, 2 TD’s, INT
Bradford has shown plenty of signs that he has that big arm and all the attributes to make any throw in the league. With a big win last week over the heavily favored Cardinals demonstrating that, Bradford will look to air it out as they face a Dolphins secondary ranking 27th vs. the pass and a rush defense that ranks the best in the business.
DeMarco Murray RB Cowboys
Last game played: 11 carries, 24 yards
Murray’s Week 1 in where he rushed for 131 yards seems like seasons ago, as he has only gained a combined 106 yards rushing in three games since. Even though Baltimore’s reputation is known for stopping the run, Murray’s style is one that could create plenty of problems when trying to tackle an elusive runner such as himself.
Nate Burleson WR Lions
Last game played: 5 catches, 51 yards
Burleson has had a better year than most anticipated in what thought to be Titus Young’s year to take over the slot. The veteran wideout hasn’t let him take his position just yet and doesn’t seem likely at all anymore. With much emphasis going to be focusing on how the Eagles defense can stop Calvin Johnson, Burleson will be reaping the rewards with short slants in zone coverage.
