TNT worries Giants

New, comment

It happens every week now, teams talk about Terrell Owens and the talent he brings to the field, how you've got to account for him, etc. Then just as quickly they turn to the other half of TNT, Terry Glenn.

It may be T.O. week for the Giants, but T.G. demands attention as well.

In fact, as nickel back R.W. McQuarters noted, Terry Glenn has been Drew Bledsoe's go-to guy, since the two have played together for so long.

"I don't think people pay enough attention to Terry Glenn," said LB Antonio Pierce. "He's been quietly having a good season like he did last year. You try to double-team T.O. because of the problems he creates, but at the same time you have a guy who's in his 11th year in the league and he has the speed he came here with. He can stretch the field and they have a quarterback that can get him the ball."


The Giants secondary is going to rely on the Giants front seven to get pressure on Bledsoe, because they aren't good enough to handle our receivers for extended time on passing plays. Last week, the Falcons had opportunities to hurt the Giants through the air, but Micahel Vick wasn't very accurate. The Falcons receivers aren't in the same class as the Cowboys, so there will be chances downfield for Bledsoe. The offensive line just needs to do its job.

The Giants injury report looks like this:

The Giants are hoping that SS Gibril Wilson will be back practicing today after running on the side yesterday. Wilson missed the win in Atlanta after having a toenail removed.

"He's feeling better, and hopefully we'll get the green light for him to go," Coughlin said.

LB Carlos Emmons (pec), WR Sinorice Moss (quad) and RB Derrick Ward (foot) were all limited at practice, but Coughlin is trying to increase their workload as the week goes on. WR Amani Toomer was added to the injury report as probable after missing the team portion of practice with a sore calf.


Word is that Wilson and Emmons might play, but it's doubtful that Moss will play. There's no doubt that Toomer will play.
