The Giants are cramming for their latest test, a game against the very physical Washington Redskins (1-1) on Thursday night. The Giants are 0-2 and probably should be at least 1-1, perhaps even 2-0, after squandering fourth-quarter leads in both game in historic fashion.

The Giants' 0-2 start has come with some interesting sidebars. They have actually played seven quarters of effective football and could have won both games. But fate would not have it. They let their guard down against two opponents that had the capacity to beat them, and so it goes.

The Giants have always been known for their conservative, all-business approach in running the day-to-day operations. They have essentially been the model NFL franchise. Even through all the off-field hiccups in the past, e.g. Plaxico Burress, the Giants' brass has taken the high road more often than not.

They're still talking about the Giants' curious choice to throw on third and goal on Sunday night in Dallas. The conventional thinking was they should have run the ball and either scored and iced the game or not scored, which would have taken an extra 40 seconds off the clock before kicking a FG.

Now this is a case of who said what, and why 13-year veteran QB Eli Manning a) didn't know how many time outs the Cowboys had left and b) why he decided to throw the ball out of bounds, stopping the clock.

1.) In addition to taking responsibility for the team's failure to run down the clock on their de facto final drive, Coughlin was disappointed about the defense's play on Dallas' final two drives. "We didn?t give them much opposition," Coughlin said. "They had a six-play, 76 yard drive and later a six-play, 72 yard drive."

Are Giant fans in for a long season? From what we've seen so far, yes. The overall health of the team is worse than it was a year ago, and key players such as WR Victor Cruz, DE Jason Pierre-Paul, MLB Jon Beason and LT Will Beatty are either missing time or going to miss time.

Some pre-cut notes....The Giants have 88 players on the active roster and one of those is LT Will Beatty (pec) who is on preseason PUP list and will be moved to regular season PUP this week. Whether that will be done in this round of cuts or on Saturday is still unknown. He will miss a minimum of six regular season games.

DE Jason Pierre-Paul is not on the roster at this time because he has not signed his franchise tender. Whether or not he is ready to play, it is likely he will be placed on NFI (non-football injury list) when he signs, therefore missing the first six games of the season.
