Defensive end Damontre Moore has the New York Giants excited about his future - just one game into his NFL career.
The third-round draft pick who came into the league with a little baggage put on a show in his first preseason game, blocking a punt, recording four tackles, getting a quarterback pressure and a tackle for a loss in a win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday.
It also could have been a lot better. The 20-year-old who left Texas A&M early to enter the draft seemingly was a step away from making a couple of other big plays, on defense and special teams.
Moore isn't perfect. He has had a habit of jumping offside and forgetting his responsibilities, at times. However, he is a playmaker and that's what the Giants need this season.

New York Giants second-year wide receiver Rueben Randle has been so impressive during camp that offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride can’t help but rave about him.
Gilbride told reporters on Monday that Randle is “light years from where he was last year. Not that there wasn’t some physical ability that I think was easily discerned by everybody, but the consistency of performance...

New York Giants wideout Victor Cruz missed almost everything the team did this off season because he didn't have a contract and, according to head coach Tom Coughlin, came to camp a little "rusty."
Now Cruz has a $43 million contract but might still have a little lingering rust in his joints — at least when it comes to his post-touchdown dancing.
We all know that the Giants’ RBs are in a battle to see who will be the ‘starter’ or at least get the majority of the carries. Wilson is the dynamic talent who just needs to be on the field. Brown is just a guy. A hard working guy who excelled at the goaline last season, but nonetheless, he’s just a guy. Tom Coughlin was not exactly pleased from what he saw from Wilson...

A well done commercial can be more fun to watch than the show you turned your tv on for. And when it comes to athletes, I love me the ones who don't take themselves seriously, the ones who can make fun of themselves and goof around. Back in December...
Looking back at the Pittsburgh Steelers first preseason game against the New York Giants, below are six things that really surprised me. I really didn’t think that Justin Cheadle would see any snaps in this game at center, but he played quite a few there. Cheadle has worked at center a little over the course [...]
