Well that didn’t take long at all. New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin has been waiting all offseason to get his team back on track after a down 7-9 season in which they missed the playoffs. So it only stands to reason that he’s already unhappy with players dropping like flies on day one of training camp. Aside from multiple players having to leave practice due to dehydration...

New York Giants look better at linebacker than they have in years

For the last few years, the New York Giants’ linebacking corps was often cited as the team’s greatest weakness heading into the offseason. And every year, fans were left disappointed by the lack of improvements made. This season, however, the Giants appear comfortable and primed for a big year out of their linebackers.
