Fresh legs could bring new life to Giants’ shoddy return game

For the first time in what seems like forever, the Giants will put on the field a multitude of options in their return game when they report for training camp this month. A team that has often treated kickoff and punt returns as a defensive maneuver can now legitimately trot out several players possessing big-play potential.

Odell Beckham’s potential in the return game

When the New York Giants selected receiver Odell Beckham with the 12th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft last month, his abilities in the return game were as responsible for his addition as his playmaking abilities on offense.

When Quintin Demps visited the Giants late last week, his dinner company consisted of head coach Tom Coughlin, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and special teams coach Tom Quinn. With that crew on the recruiting trail, it almost went almost without saying what the Giants had in mind for safety/kickoff returner. “I’m a fan of the game and I’m pretty sure we all know they...

Broncos versus Chargers: Trindon Holliday is the key

The Denver Broncos have been the most popular choice to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl since this summer. Peyton Manning still looks most likely to lead his club there. Yet they have legitimate reasons to fear the San Diego Chargers, who beat them 27-20 in Week 15. The Bolts are riding a 5 game win streak.
