Giants kicked tires on 19 on Friday

We pointed out in the one-liners that the Giants worked out 19 players on Friday.

Here’s the official list, per a source with knowledge of the situation:   Guard Roger Allen, defensive back David Caldwell, receiver Michael Campbell, defensive tackle Antonio Dixon, defensive back James Dockery, receiver Jeremy Ebert, defensive back Terrence Frederick, defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton, quarterback Brian Hoyer, running back Kareem Huggins, receiver Dan Keegan, defensive back Elbert Mack, quarterback Josh McCown, quarterback Stephen McGee, tight end Troy McKenna, defensive back Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, receiver Jordan Shipley, tight end Mickey Shuler, and center Scott Wedige.

The Giants and the Cowboys, because they already have played their first games of the regular season, may sign vested veterans (players with four or more years of experience) without potentially being responsible for their full base salaries, under the termination pay provision of the labor deal.

    I see several defensive backs listed after Cowboys exploited their weak secondary Wednesday night. Akwasi was in the Cowboys preseason camp but failed to make the roster.

    Given that they were playing their 4th string corner Wednesday night I am surprised they only had 4 DBs in. TT is done for the year, Prince hasn’t shown anything and isn’t healthy. The solution might be on the roster, but they need to add the best available body regardless.

    Worked out 19 players? Wow. Lose the opener and they’re scared already.

    Hoyer and Shipley would be good additions

    The GIANTS are doing what all good teams do. Looking at guys on the street to see if they can help your team by churning the bottom of the roster, as well as letting existing players on the team know that just because they mad the 53-man roster out of training camp, they are not locked in.

    Jordan Shipley for one would be a terrific addition to the passing game.

    Yeah cause we all know how great it’s worked out for them over the past few years. Cowpies just abused a secondary plagued with injuries
    and barely won at that. Don’t write the gmen off yet.

    After that debacle wednesday i wouldn’t be surprised if we brought back Deon Grant, got Sam Madison to un-retire and paid off Will Peterson’s tax debt so he could play. Talk about snake bit..

    ==================================

    Win the Super Bowl, besides your team has four extra days to prepare and rest up for their game. I don’t know what you’re all yapping about, most teams workout available players every week and add them to speed dial so they know who is available in case one of their own goes down

    Antonio Dixon, Brian Hoyer, Josh McCown, and Jordan Shipley should be on teams now.

    The rule where the contract is fully guaranteed when you’re on the Week 1 roster needs to be changed. Do you know how ruined team chemistry is when you bring a guy in Week 2 or later?

    The guarantee should come when the roster is trimmed from 75 to 53. From the completion of the roster to Week 1 should be the starting date of non-guaranteed contracts. Plus, what’s the point of signing bonus money being the only guaranteed portion when the full year salary becomes guaranteed at a certain time?

    This league and networks don’t explain the CBA fully enough at earlier times. Why do you think that the Week 1 guarantee and the 3-member panel that gave a temporary victory for the players involved in the alleged bounties were confusing and looked like they came out of thin air???

    May the AOA experiment remain ended in Dallas, I couldn’t believe we brought him BACK in. He had a lot of potential, just to small.

    Shut up cowgirl fans. Only reason you won was a rookie was getting burnt in the secondary all night.

    “Lose the opener and they’re scared already.”

    Yeah. Because they lost the opener last year and that completely destroyed their whole season.

    Cowboy fans are funny. You win one game before its even winter and you are all bunch of giddy school girls. If the season is on the line a romo has that same 3rd and long after everything else going their way, he over throws the wr and games in ot. Romo is known as biggest choker in nfl and Eli is most clutch player evvvvvvvvver

    Prior to Wednesday, the Giants have had zero problems beating Dallas for 2 years. Your theory holds true for the Pats, who keep snagging guys the Giants release.

    Yeah, and I love how he missed throwing to that wide open receiver towards the end of the game. Pretty clutch. Funny what happens when Dallas actually has a defense.

    To bad they didn’t bring in any new offensive coordinators to look at!!

    Eli has proven himself to be just about the best no huddle 2 minute QB in the league. You’d think Gilbride would recognize it and mix it in to changing the pace of the game once and while so there not so predictable.

    Now I’m not putting all the blaming KB for the loss and not saying they didn’t play like crap Wednesday because they did, sloppy tackling, no run blocking and poor DB play. They lost this one as a team.

    The good thing is everything is very fixable and all they have to do, is get back to playing hard nosed and mistake free Giant football.

    Please don’t generalize about Cowboys fans.

    And Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is one of the more fun names to pronounce during games!

    Giants lose and look like they have some major holes . . . I believe we have seen this story before . . .

  22. bluebongzilla says: Sep 9, 2012 12:02 PM

    “Cowpies just abused a secondary plagued with injuries and barely won at that.”

    Really. REALLY? They player a terrible, mistake-riddled game and still beat the Giants by 7 in their own house. And you forgot to mention the fact that the Cowboys D put the clamps on the Giants’ O, too.

  23. bluebongzilla says: Sep 9, 2012 12:07 PM

    “Prior to Wednesday, the Giants have had zero problems beating Dallas for 2 years.”

    I’d say that week 10 game in 2010 in NJ was a problem. 33-20 with Kitna starting?

  24. WestJordanDentist says: Jan 15, 2013 12:51 AM

    Just regular football politics as usual. It’s always the next team and what strategy are they going to do next. The Giants in this case did pretty well I’d say.
