The draft is over, Eli and company have finished up in Hoboken, and the players are locked out. That means there's not much to report on the second Sunday in May (with the exception of the developing story out of Albany posted below this one). But this is football, these are the New York Giants, and no matter what Rex Ryan says, the Giants always matter around here. Here's a look at a?few stories:

Gary Myers?defends the Giants and?thinks?that Rex Ryan's insecurities are being revealed when he talks about the Jets being the big brother: "I've said many times Ryan is quite entertaining and his trash-talking and speaking from the heart is refreshing compared to so many NFL head coaches. But he's on the verge of a credibility issue here. At some point, the Jets have to win the Super Bowl or nobody is ever going to take him seriously. And he doesn't further his own cause by belittling the Giants, an institution in this town." NY Daily News

Bob Raissman says that the NFL Network?disrespected Bob Papa by making him audition for his job, then replacing him with Brad Nessler: "This was despicable and gutless, too. If NFLN honchos wanted to fire Papa, which they obviously did, why not just immediately tell him his services were no longer needed? Instead, they dragged him through the mud, humiliated him."
