Giants Edge Out Baltimore

It was nice to get the dramatic 17-16 win, but that's not really important. The first line D played poorly when they allowed Baltimore to score a TD on an 80-yard-drive. The drive consisted of 3 big plays: 2 long catches by Todd Heap, and a 6-yard TD run by McNair. The Giants scored a TD on their 3rd drive, but neither first unit (O or D) looked very consistent.

Sam Madison broke up a pass nicely, and made a nice open-field tackle. Chase Blackburn continued where he left off last year after his injury by playing well. Manning looked ok, but was still susceptible to the blitz. Michael Jennings may make the team because of the athletic ability he showed returning a punt 57 yards for a TD. The Gints 1st rd. pick, Mathias Kiwanuka had one great series, where he made 3 tackles, including 1.5 sacks.

It's too bad Sinorice Moss has been so banged up in training camp, because he'll be exciting to watch. They host KC this Thursday, and Barber, Shockey & Strahan are expected to play.

I'd like to see the first teams play better, and see the run D improve. My wife & I are planning to visit Giants training camp in Albany, and spend a day at Saratoga race track this weekend. :)
