Daily Blitz: Return game takes shape

Posted by Dan Salomone on September 14, 2012 – 9:00 am

Each new season brings a certain level of turnover to every position, but none more so than special teams.

While the core of the kicking game stayed in place (long snapper, kicker, punter, and holder), coordinator Tom Quinn spent the preseason working and re-working his coverage and return outfits. In Week 1, he led off with rookie David Wilson on kickoff return and Domenik Hixon on punts.

The latter was a move in favor of having a veteran handling Dallas’ southpaw punter Chris Jones, especially on a primetime stage for the first game of the season.

“Experience, left-footed punter played an issue in that,” Quinn explained yesterday about choosing Hixon, the last Giant to return a kick (2007) or a punt (2009) for a touchdown. “Because the ball does spin a little bit differently for those guys. Those were the two factors.”

However, the Giants face a traditional righty this week with Tampa’s Michael Koenen, and that could mean time for Rueben Randle or Jayron Hosley, whom Quinn pointed out.

“We’ve got three guys we feel good with right now,” Quinn said. “How much they’re being used on offense and defense all plays into it.”

Rookie Blog: CB Jayron Hosley

Posted by Giants.com on September 10, 2012 – 3:46 pm

Cornerback Jayron Hosley was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round this past April. Each week, the Virginia Tech alum and Florida native will provide an inside look at his journey of making it in the NFL. This week’s post begins with Hosley’s first game in the NFL last Wednesday against the Dallas Cowboys.

Wednesday night was what I had been working toward for a long time now. It was finally here, emotions were up, but I prepared like it was a regular game, like any other game. On game day, I just went over my playbook. We had our meetings in the morning like our regular routine.

I got a little foot rub from the trainers, ate my pregame meal, and then it was just getting prepared at the stadium. I made sure I was focused and going over my keys and things like that to be ready for the game.

And then the wait began. The hardest part about night games is the waiting. But the game clock kept getting closer and closer to kickoff, and then it was time to hit the field for intros. The fans, the smoke and the fog, it was crazy. All I saw were all the flashes of light. Like you see on TV, all the cameras were flashing in the stadium. It was definitely that NFL feeling – that feeling of ‘I’m finally here.’

When I was out there on the field, it was the same thing — ‘I’m here.’ But I couldn’t get too caught up in the moment. I had to focus in and key on what I had to do and execute. It was definitely exciting, but at the same time, you have to snap into it real quick.

Rookie Blog: CB Jayron Hosley

Posted by Giants.com on September 1, 2012 – 5:47 pm

Cornerback Jayron Hosley was drafted by the New York Giants in the third round this past April. Each week, the Virginia Tech alum and Florida native will provide an inside look at his journey of making it in the NFL. This week’s post begins the day after NFL rosters were finalized, meaning it is now full speed ahead to Wednesday night’s opener against Dallas.

The season starts now. It’s time to go.

We’ve made it to the 53-man roster, and coaches have made their decisions on who they want to be here and did it for the best of the team. The mood changes now that we start actually game-planning for the opponent. It’s only days away now from the prime-time lights of Giants vs. Cowboys.

Back at the facility, I also moved to a permanent locker like the rest of the new guys. I’m right next to my former Tech teammate David Wilson. Before, us rookies and guys new to the team had temporary metal lockers in the middle, but those are cleared out now. You really feel like you’re at home now. You don’t want to get complacent because there’s still a lot of work to do, but this is home now.

From the draft to rookie minicamp to training camp and preseason, it was a great experience out there. It was good to get out there with an NFL team, the New York Giants, and get that work in. We really got that quality work in that you need, and you could see us progressing every day. It’s time for the real season, when it counts, so I’m looking forward to it.

There was good news as I got back onto the practice field today after missing the final two preseason games. Now I’m just trying to take it day by day leading up to the Dallas game, and we’ll see how the toe injury thing goes. Right now, I’m feeling very confident playing on it, but we’ll just see how it goes. There’s going to be a lot going on Wednesday night and it’s going to be a very exciting game, but right now I’m just trying to take it day by day.

Around the locker room: Preseason finale

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 30, 2012 – 2:56 pm

Giants.com takes you around the locker room as the defending Super Bowl champs wrap up the preseason and prepare for the regular-season opener against the Cowboys. 

Now that it’s over, DE Justin Tuck was asked about the mood coming off this preseason.

“It’s been a fun preseason; it’s been a different preseason.  I’m excited to see who we’re going to have on this football team because those guys made our coaching staff, and Jerry Reese and his staff’s decisions pretty difficult.  Heading into the regular season, I’m excited about it, I’m ready to get going, and we start off with the Dallas Cowboys and that’s going to be very exciting.”

Corneback Jayron Hosley updated his injury status (toe) and talked about his chances of playing against Dallas.

“I’m taking it day-by-day.  Right now I’m feeling pretty confident that I’ll be ready, and the trainers have been doing a great job with me.  The trainers have been doing a great job of getting me ready, getting me prepared to get back on the field as soon as possible.  I’m feeling pretty confident about playing against Dallas.”

On and off practice squads his whole career, RB Andre Brown put together a solid performance in the final preseason game on Wednesday with 14 carries for 55 yards and two catches for 22. He’s been through this routine before as the roster will be finalized to 53 on Friday.

“A bad expert. I feel more comfortable though. I feel that other than the one fumble that I had, I feel as though I put a solid game together. I’m sure I’m capable of playing in the league. I know I’m going to be here or if it’s not here, I’m going to be somewhere and I know that I still believe that it’s going to be my year.”

CB Prince Amukara updated his ankle injury.

“Yeah, I’m out of the walking boot.  I’ve been rehabbing, walking better, and it feels a lot better than it did last week.  It’s only been six days, so we’re still taking it day-by-day.”

Meanwhile, DE Adewale Ojomo has relished the competitive environment on the defensive line.

“It’s been a great environment. It’s a process. It doesn’t just happen overnight. People don’t see what goes into it. Listening, adjusting and Osi and those guys and Coach Robert Nunn, so it’s just a lot of work. I wasn’t just going to come here because my senior year in college, I had one and a half sacks. Coming in here learning from those guys made a big improvement.”

Also trying to make the roster, WR David Douglas feels like he belongs in the NFL after an impressive training camp and preseason.

“I think so. I just took it day by day from the first day I got out here and that’s really all you can do coming in as a free agent and a rookie trying to make a team. I felt like I came out and I gave it my all every day and that’s really all you can do.”

Around the locker room: Two weeks from opener

Posted by Dan Salomone on August 22, 2012 – 3:31 pm

Giants.com takes you around the locker room as the defending Super Bowl champs approach the season opener against Dallas on Sept. 5. But first, the third preseason game vs. Chicago. 

LB Mathias Kiwanuka spoke about Keith Rivers’ ability to step into a new defense this year:

“This is not an easy system to pick up but he came in… He dedicated himself. Now what we do out there in preseason, it’s usually very vanilla. Him going through practices and picking up stuff and being moved from one side to the other and being able to just go out there and just his general attitude… add that to his athletic ability; he’s a pretty good linebacker.”

Coming off a victory over the Jets, CB Prince Amukamara preps for his next game:

“I thought my physical play was great. I thought it was pretty aggressive. I didn’t see a lot of action, but I’ll probably see a lot of action this week. There are a couple of things that I can improve on that my coach pointed out to me. I’ve been focusing on that at practice.”

In two weeks, CB Corey Webster will begin his eighth season in the NFL. And who better to kick it off against than the Cowboys?

“It’s nothing you have to get up for. It’s a big rivalry game, Dallas against the Giants. We want to kick the season off the right way, so I think everyone will be up for that challenge. I think the New York Giants will be up for it, I know the Dallas Cowboys will be up for it, and I think it’ll be a good game.”

As he battles a toe injury, CB Jayron Hosley, who had a 77-yard interception return for a touchdown last week, assessed where he is within the system:

“Definitely some improvement from last week to the Jets game. Just knowing where I’m supposed to be. I’m lining up my assignments and techniques got better overall. With making that kind of play, I think that kind of made things a little better. I think it was a pretty good… Not too many plays but I made it count when I got the chance.”
