ESPN’S JOHN CLAYTON PICKS G-MEN IN NFC EAST
Over the weekend, as the Giants began Training Camp, ESPN’s John Clayton picked Big Blue to rise to the top of the NFC East in this video.
In response to Clayton’s pick, ESPN’s NFC East blogger Dan Graziano said he wasn’t “overly enthralled with the Giants as a favorite right now”, but “…you never can rule out the Giants, and they’re likely the safest pick. Their ceiling doesn’t feel overly high, but you do feel as though you know where the floor is. They’re unlikely to be a bad team, and they always contend until the final weeks. Manning and Tom Coughlin are the cornerstones at the key positions of quarterback and coach who make sure of that every year.”
TWEET OF THE DAY
“Physical, New York Giant defense; tough, physical and hard-nosed defense. We’re not that far removed from that and hopefully we’ll get right back to it. You have to get an identity. You have to represent something. You have to be there week in and week out. You have to have that kind of consistency and you have to control the line of scrimmage. You have to stop the run first before you can rush the pass and we’re capable of both, but we’re certainly going to get tested in both areas.” – Coach Tom Coughlin on what he’s looking from his team this year
