While the Giants were hoping to have David Douglas take over for Ramses Barden as the underdog story earlier this preseason, it didn’t happen. Douglas was patiently waiting for his turn and although it took long, his turn arose.
The 23-year-old’s camp performance prompted coach Tom Coughlin to declare last week Douglas “has had a heck of a preseason.” He was at it again in practice yesterday.
First, the 6-foot-1 205-pound Douglas made a terrific jumping catch over the middle, beating cornerback Brandon Bing. Later he jumped over safety Janzen Jackson to haul in a touchdown.
Today the Bucaneers signed Douglas hoping to boost their wide receiver morale.

Although OC Kevin Gilbride and Running backs coach Jerald Ingram continue to profess a lack of faith in David Wilson, coach Tom Coughlin is prescribing an increased role for the rookie.”We need to get him more involved,” said Coughlin, “and we will get him more involved.” Wilson is unlikely to play on passing downs or at the goal line, leaving him as nothing more than a roster...
Tom Coughlin understands the importance of late season football, and after his New York Giants dropped a pair of games, the bye came at a much needed time.
Eli Manning had a dead arm, but is feeling better. Justin Tuck is telling his teammates it’s time to focus after admitting the Giants kind of took their eyes off the prize.
Coughlin is the commander, the general, and even...
Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who has been dealing with a neck injury, did not practice Wednesday. He did practice on Monday so we are not worried by his absence.Fantasy Spin:Bradshaw hasn't cracked the 100-yard rushing mark since Week 6 and has been yielding his goal line carries to Andre Brown, but he's still a viable fantasy RB2 when healthy.
The Giants held a short Thanksgiving Day practice session, but Ahmad Bradshaw wasn't on the field.
Bradshaw (foot) didn't practice for the second straight day, sitting out along with DT Linval Joseph (knee) and WR Domenik Hixon (ankle). Hixon, who is battling a high ankle sprain and said he's "taking it day-by-day," and Bradshaw, who rarely practices these...
With the Green Bay Packers coming to Met Life Stadium to take on the Giants this Sunday night, all signs are pointing to safety Kenny Phillips returning to the lineup. Stevie Brown has played exceptionally well in the place of Phillips, but the Giants are looking to use a three safety look against the Packers who rely heavily on quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the passing game.
Less than three weeks ago, the Giants still looked like a team ready to repeat, so two straight losses werent going to shake the confidence of the defending Super Bowl champions.
A lack of confidence is something Justin Tuck said he believes wont ever be an issue for the Giants, but at times this season, he said he thinks they may have had too much.
I think weve always...

Green Bay Packers (7-3) at New York Giants (6-4)
What’s wrong with the Giants? That’s what everyone is asking. Well, they do this every year. Since Tom Coughlin took over, the Giants are 53-19 in the first 8 games of a season and 27-39 in the last 8 games of the season, including these last 2 losses. Eli Manning has been the main problem of late and not just in the 2 losses....
