Pro Football Zone:
On Thursday Giants QB Eli Manning acknowledged concerns about the Giants offense.
“We have to play better,” Manning said. “We have to be better in the red zone and convert on third downs, so there’s some room for improvement.’’-NYPost.com
It might be an understatement that there is room for improvement. In the three preseason games the Giants have played they have been unable to consistently move the ball down the field and have only scored two touchdowns. It is only preseason so it’s not necessarily time to panic but it certainly would be comforting for Giants fans to see some production from the offense when they play the Patriots tonight.

Even though it looks like Andre Brown will miss about half of the upcoming regular season, the Giants likely won’t be looking to bring back Brandon Jacobs.

The New York Giants running game was dealt a significant blow during their fourth preseason game when Andre Brown fractured the same leg that took him out during last season. If he doesn’t go on season ending injured reserve it’s possible the Giants make him their lone candidate for designation to return later in the season.

Former Giants LB Aaron Curry has announced his retirement via his Twitter page:
Curry was thought to be a sure thing coming out of Wake Forest back in 2009 when the Seahawks made him the 4th pick in the draft. Curry never lived up to the hype though in Seattle and was traded to Oakland where he struggled with injuries.
Good luck to him in his life post football.
When Aaron Curry came out of Wake Forest in 2009, many considered him a sure thing. The Seahawks ended up taking the linebacker with the fourth overall pick that year and five years later after being released by the New York Giants that sure thing is set to retire.
