New York Giants 2009 Training Camp Preview:

NFL Editor Tony Moss had this to say today about the upcoming Giants training camp.

The Giants have had less drama this offseason than in any during recent memory, but the enduring question of who is going to replace Plaxico Burress’ production remains. Tom Coughlin and offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride need to determine whether their current group featuring holdovers Steve Smith, Domenik Hixon, and first-rounder Hakeem Nicks can be reliable enough for Eli Manning to count on, or whether outside options need to be explored. The other issue on offense seems to be a minor one, as Derrick Ward parlayed a 1,000-yard season into a free agent deal with Tampa Bay, but the talented Ahmad Bradshaw is ready to step in as a complement to Brandon Jacobs. On defense, the news is mostly good, as Osi Umenyiora is back from injury to help spark the pass rush and tackles Chris Canty, Rocky Bernard, and linebacker Michael Boley (who will be suspended to start the season) should further strengthen the front seven. The most significant loss defensively was coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, now in St. Louis coaching the Rams, but Bill Sheridan has been elevated from linebackers coach to replace him and shouldn’t have much trouble earning the players’ respect.

Pretty much the usual stuff.  Receiver issues, who backs up Jacobs, will Sheridan be able to fill Spags shoes…..  Hopefully some receivers step it up this camp, stay healthy and solidify the position.  The season is approaching quickly and I am ready for some football!
