Giants let Chris Canty work out at facility

Chicago Bears v New York Giants Getty Images

John Kasay of the Panthers was unofficially the first player to show up a team facility since the lockout started.

It looks like the Giants have allowed defensive lineman Chris Canty to break another barrier.  Canty confirmed to Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger that he was allowed to work out at the team facility when he arrived Tuesday.

Running back Brandon Jacobs and wide receiver Mario Manningham were also at the facility during the day.  Canty said he spoke with all the coaches in the building as well.

Canty praised the Giants as a “class act” organization for allowing him to work out.  He was told the Jets didn’t do the same for their players.

“Ok, but this is the New York Football Giants, though,” Canty said.  “It’s not the Jets.”

As far as we know, the Giants were on their own Tuesday in allowing their players to work out.   It reminds us of the Giants’ decision to not ask for money from their season ticket holders, another time the organization stood apart from the rest of the league and showed a little extra class when they didn’t have to.

    That’s why I have been a Giants fan my whole life.

    “It looks like the Giants have allowed defensive lineman Chris Canty to break another barrier.”

    Given his penchant for spending quality time injured in the hot tub, maybe the jints figured they might need to get a head start with Canty.

    Big Blue, baby!

  5. commoncents says: Apr 26, 2011 4:17 PM

    There probably wasn’t any jets coaches there to let the players in.

  6. scoops1 says: Apr 26, 2011 4:18 PM

    The organization is very classy….

    …too bad you can’t say the same bout their former players

    Giants have lived by the credo “Once a Giant, always a Giant”. Not surprised they would allow players to work out. Now if John Mara could get off of jury duty.

  8. clayjayhawk says: Apr 26, 2011 4:24 PM

    That’s about as class act as you can get. Let the players in they work there. If they get hurt at the facility workman’s comp. steps in. Don’t buy into the smoking mirrors. And by the way… Go Pack Go!

    George Martin, Harry Carson, Pat Summerall… please, I could go on all day. One rotten apple (LT) does not spoil the bunch.

    Wow! A franchise acting like a business! An owner acting like a professional adult!

    How refreshing!

  11. howboutthemtexans says: Apr 26, 2011 4:32 PM

    With stories like this and an owner like Mara, one of the few who has seemed throughout this ready to put his ego in his pocket, along with the likes of Rooney and a couple others, as a Texans fan, I can say with full honesty that I’m extremely jealous of the integrity of this organization.

    “The organization is very classy….

    …too bad you can’t say the same bout their former players”

    Clownshoes.

    They didn’t have the ba*ls to ask for ticket money. After putting in the PSL charges, season ticket holders are dropping like flies. Asking for payments now would lose even more.

    Like the players couldn’t afford to join a health club to work out.

    Now maybe the can redesign the ugly stadium.

  13. bigbluefan1 says: Apr 26, 2011 4:42 PM

    Thats right baby the best no season ticket money till someone knows what the season is

    Unlike the greedy teams who are collecting the cash and sitting on it yeah wait for those refunds befire refunds go out they will be asking if you want to put it towards next years tickets

  14. birdobeamen says: Apr 26, 2011 4:51 PM

    As an Eagles fan, I have to say that I respect what they did by allowing the players to work out and not making season ticket holders pay until there is football.

    Now with that out of the way, maybe they just let the players workout in hopes that they can beat the Eagles this year…..I mean, it’s only been like 3 and a half years since their last Win against us…..so its understandable that they would want to take any advantage they could.

    “Ok, but this is the New York Football Giants, though,” Canty said. ”It’s not the Jets.”

    Take the extra workout opportunities, maybe you’ll make the playoffs this year. New York is a Jets town now, until the Ginas decide to not collapse in the winter.

    @ birdobeamen:

    Congrats on beating us. I mean, we usually only celebrate Super Bowl victories, but regular season wins are pretty good, too!

    Cowboys: 5
    Redskins: 3
    Giants: 3
    Eagles: (crickets chirping)

    “I mean, it’s only been like 3 and a half years since their last Win against us”

    Again, when did the Eagles win a Super Bowl?? Please remind us. You Philly assclowns are hysterical. Nothing matters but the game in February. Too bad you’ll never know the feeling of watching your team win it all.

    @ nyjalleffingday:

    Enjoy your one championship from 45 years ago….

  19. birdobeamen says: Apr 26, 2011 5:49 PM

    I would say that nothing “matters” but the game in February too if my team hasn’t beaten a rival in over three years too.

  20. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 26, 2011 5:53 PM

    @berniemadoffsides

    Enjoy memories of former glories which have no bearing on the present day Giants!

    Giants fans have no room to make fun of the Eagles fans, seeing as Andy Reid and co. haven’t suffered a defeat to the Giants in almost 4 years now. In fact, the last time they played, the Giants CHOKED at HOME in a PLAYOFF-esque situation in a game they were leading by multiple touchdowns for 3/4ths of the game! The humiliation was so complete the game got named!

    Think of it this way: The Raiders won Super Bowls in the past, too. The Cowboys won Super Bowls in the past, too. The Redskins won Super Bowls in the past, too. The Broncos won Super Bowls in the past, too. Guess what they all have in common?

    They all suck now.

  21. hobartbaker says: Apr 26, 2011 5:53 PM

    We are not petty, we are Giants!

  22. nyjalleffingday says: Apr 26, 2011 6:01 PM

    And while I’m at it, Canty doesn’t have a Super Bowl ring! What’s he doing talking about the Jets? Sounds like someone’s trying to compensate.

    New York is a Jets town now

    And then you woke up, looked around the basement, and realized it was all a dream. Spare us, clown. Even the Mets have a bigger grip on New York than the Jests can ever hope to have. Those “winter collapses” aren’t helping their case either.

    Just admit that the 2 Giants/Eagles games are your Super Bowl every year and be done with it. It’s as close as you’ll ever get to knowing what it’s like anyway

  25. krow101 says: Apr 26, 2011 6:32 PM

    No article on the Giants is complete till some dirtbag jealous Eagles fan brays like the donkeys they are.

    Superbowls… us 3… you ZERO.

  26. kmurillo32 says: Apr 26, 2011 7:44 PM

    I hear the Jets are forming an “assistant coach wall” to trip any players entering the weight room. Yes, they’re that classy.

  29. berniemadoffsides says: Apr 26, 2011 8:18 PM

    Really, dude? Michael “Dog Torturer” Vick as your QB and face of your franchise…?

  30. melonnhead says: Apr 26, 2011 8:33 PM

    Remember when they tried to cover the Plaxico Burress thing up? Yeah that pretty much disqualifies them from being considered “classy”.

  31. promin1 says: Apr 26, 2011 9:23 PM

    LOL @ Jet fans. What have the Jets done in the past 40 years? Talk about the past, at least some teams have one. Jets have nothing. You can’t bring up the past two years because that is the PAST. By the way…the past two years. You choked. Jet fans should be seen, not heard. Shut the F up until you actually have a championship.

  32. MTArider says: Apr 26, 2011 11:54 PM

    melonnhead-Thats not even remotely true. Actually the Giants were the ones to inform both the league and the police about what happened in the Burress case. Stop re-writing history to fit your argument.

    You Philly fans are jokes. The same guys who called radio stations and said they’d protest if Vick played now root for him and badmouth other teams in his name. You guys are a joke and a regular season team.

    LOL.

    Guess what the difference is? Half of the current Giants have a Superbowl ring from just 4 years ago, in one of the greatest Superbowls ever played. An upset for the ages. We’ll still be seeing that Tyree catch in 50 years in highlights.

    And they’ll still be ringless in Philly!

    Too funny.
