It is debatable how much New York Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas would have been able to contribute, even if healthy this season. Although his contract suggests that General Manager Jerry Reese brought him back to start, there is a long list of players who have suffered major knee injuries and returned to the field as shells of their former selves. Regardless, his status for this season is up in the air, and it has left Big Blue searching for someone to man the slot corner position that Thomas was expected to fill.
For the majority of 2011, safety Antrel Rolle doubled as both a safety and nickel cornerback.

Let me start by stating I am a die-hard, true blue Dallas Cowboy fan. It all started in 1983 when I saw my first Cowboys game. I was nine.
Since then I’ve been hooked. I haven’t missed a Sunday of football in 25 years and haven’t missed a Cowboys game since 1992.
I live in central New Jersey and hate the New York Giants. Always have, always will.
It was hell for me...
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has been having fun with the media and all of their coverage of the New York Jets and quarterback Tim Tebow.
“I told David Carr to take his shirt off while we were running sprints after practice,” Manning said on ESPN Radio (via the NY Daily News) on Thursday, “to see if he can get the same coverage.”
What’s really funny...
Eli Manning said he isn't jealous of all of the attention the New York Jets are getting but— while the two-time Super Bowl won't go topless like the now-infamous Tim Tebow photo— the New York Giants starting quarterback thinks his backup, David Carr, should give it a shot to give the team more exposure.
"I told David Carr to take his shirt off while we were running...
