Usually on late Friday or early Saturday before a game I do a preview. But I’m skipping that this week because I haven’t watched the New York Giants play at all in the preseason and I haven’t been keeping up with them beyond the occasional Tiki Barber comments or Michael Strahan hold-out stories. I could go back to last year where I do know some things, like Osi Umenyiora is good, but they are under a new defensive coordinator so what they did last year might not be applicable. And on offense, Tiki is no longer there and I can’t really predict how Brandon Jacobs will do, although I think he has talent. Basically, I would just be repeating stuff I’ve heard or read instead of forming an opinion based on what I see. And I hate doing that.
At least next week I’ll have a game to watch for our opponent and can make some basic assumptions about them. So instead of a review, here’s some reading material from various sources about the game and the Giants.
As always, you can visit Big Blue View for all kinds of Giants reading material.
Also, consider this an open thread for college football today. There are a few good games going on this Saturday.
