I remember being ecstatic when the Giants selected Cal Poly
wide receiver Ramses Barden in the third round of the 2009 NFL Draft.
I’ll be honest, I had never heard of Barden, but when I saw
he was listed at six-feet, six inches tall, I knew the Giants had found a
diamond in the rough.
Did the Giants have the next Plaxico Burress on their hands
(only without the part about shooting himself in the leg)?
It’s very rare that a rookie wide receiver immediately picks
up the system and starts right away. So there wasn’t much concern when he only
appeared in three game his first year.
But then an ankle injury sidelined him for the second half
of 2010. By the time he was healthy enough to return the following season,
Victor Cruz had emerged as the team’s third receiver.
Barden came in here with a ton of potential, but the
26-year-old has been basically a non-factor. He caught nine passes last season
BEST OF MAXIM
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning looked ready for opening night after going 17-of-21 for 148 yards and a touchdowns against the Bears' first-string.Fantasy Spin:Manning threw for 4,933 yards last season with 29 TDs and just 16 INTs. As long as Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz are ready to go, the Giants passing game should be in excellent shape and Manning should slide in...

My guess is that Amukamara may have suffered a high ankle sprain...

Prince Amukamara is shaken up here. Looks like his right ankle. Probably when he planted there. Getting carted off. #nyg

Amukamara seemed fine...
It’s the most highly anticipated preseason game – game number three, when the first team often plays well into the third quarter. In other words, Friday night will be the dress rehearsal for the New York Giants going into their week one showdown with division rival Dallas. The Giants have looked solid this preseason, but Head Coach Tom Coughlin would like to see less mistakes...
