Let’s get to your Wednesday headlines
Good morning, New York Giants fans!
Workin’ ‘em out
The Giants worked out a dozen players on Tuesday. Per multiple reports, the list is as follows:
CBs Derrick Baity, Picasso Nelson; LBs Reshard Cliett, LaTroy Lewis; WRs Jamal Custis, Trenton Irwin; RBs Josh Ferguson, Austin Waltyer; DT P.J. Johnson; DEs Carroll Phillips, Kevin Wilkins; QB Jordan Ta’amu.
Wilkins is a former Rutgers player who spent time this summer with the Philadelphia Eagles. Custis played collegiately for the Syracuse Orange. Ta’amu played at Ole Miss.
A reason for optimism
If you’re looking for one, try the play on Sunday of the offensive line.

“I think the offensive line did a great job,” Eli Manning said. “They did a great job in the run game and the pass game. They protected well all game against a good defensive line, a lot of movement, some blitzes, so I thought the offensive line did a great job. They gave me time to get through my progressions and gave us a chance to be successful.”
Beckham is apparently set to ignore an NFL directive and continue to wear his expensive watch during games.
Patricia Traina gives her take on a couple of the issues we have been discussing here at Big Blue View.
Of course someone was going to bring this up.
See the clip above.
Paul Schwartz makes a compelling case that the rookie quarterback “is exactly where he needs to be. That is, on the sideline, waiting his turn.” Also, that this season is largely about finding out whether Dave Gettleman and Pat Shurmur are the right men to lead the Giants.
Yes, they will.
