New York Giants DE Chris Canty knows all too well about a team winning a Super Bowl, only to come crashing down to the cold reality the very next season.
The Giants took home the ring in 2011 against the New England Patriots and looked to get right back to work in defending their championship in 2012.
But as we know, things didn't go quite as planned. “[The] Super Bowl hangover is real,” Canty said, via Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger. “[You] can’t just show up and win a championship.”
The Ravens will be showing up to play, but they've also lost a few key players from last year. Add in that with the so-called Super Bowl hangover, and you've got a recipe for disaster if they don't keep focused.
Canty says, "Super Bowl hangover is real." He'll take to Ravens lesson learned from '12 NYG season: "can't just show up and win a champ."

Sounds like Giants haven’t completely closed the door on Michael Boley returning. Interesting.

Like for so many other players, last night was a very exciting night for offensive lineman Justin Pugh after getting drafted by the New York Giants.
As you can see from ths video below Pugh is excited and fired up to get drafted. The best part of this video is when Pugh gets off the phone with the Giants and his family mauls him. This is what the NFL draft is all about.

“He’s got to learn to become more of a protector, which he has been working on,” Ingram said. “We’ve tested him within the system, he did well...
