With nine games to go, the Giants can go a long way to help their cause with a win vs the Colts tonight. A victory would pull them back up to .500 and set them up to go on a run.

Giants GM Jerry Reese said at his midseason presser that he wants the offense to get more aggressive the rest of the season. OC Ben McAdoo agrees and is looking for ways to make that happen. Hint: it has something to do with throwing the ball down the field more.

"We want to be more explosive," McAdoo told reporters on Friday. We are looking for explosive plays. We feel that (explosive plays) are a part of great execution and extra effort. Regardless of how they come you want to be more explosive. Right now we?re at about 10.3 percent of our plays (being explosive). We are short about 2.7 percent of our goal. Anything above that we will take. We are working on that...2.7 percent seven games into the season is a fairly substantial number. It is nothing we can?t overcome, but we have some work to do there."

The Giants have had recent success this past decade because they brought in some extraordinary players with skill, heart and toughness. RB Ahmad Bradshaw and WR Hakeem Nicks were two of those players.

This coming Monday they will be at MetLife Stadium again, but on the opposing sidelines with their new team, the Indianapolis Colts. Most of the football-watching public are well aware that these ex-Giant veterans are experiencing a second chapter of their careers alongside the NFL's newest superstar, QB Andrew Luck.

It's Week Two of the preseason for everyone else but it's Week Three for the Giants, meaning it's time for Big Blue to start to put some things together. Here's what I believe we'll see tonight:

Giants' CB Jayron Hosley couldn't catch up to Colts' WR T.Y. Hilton on this TD pass.

by Jon Wagner / Big Blue Blitz contributor

The New York Giants figure to have one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL this season.?But if they can?t solve a problem that plagued them last season -- that of not only moving the ball into the red zone, but getting into the end zone -- they may not be able to score enough to be the NFC contenders they hope to be.

Where's Dandy Don Meredith to sing "Turn out the lights, the party's over...?"

The Giants could not be any flatter in Indianapolis tonight, letting the pass-happy Colts run them right out of Lucas Oil Field with - get this - their running game!

The Colts held the ball for 19:10 and have simply had their way with Perry Fewell's "bend but don't break" defense. It bent and it broke.

The Giants may have some more injury issues as they prepare to face the 0-1 Indianapolis Colts this coming Sunday night.

C Shaun O'Hara cannot seem to shake his ankle woes. He could not complete practice today and his status won't be known until tomorrow. ?O"Hara looked a bit unsteady at times in last week's game vs Carolina.

"I was sore after the game. Just some days it has a mind of its own, and today it wasn't real happy. So we're just trying to do the right thing and everything is just to get ready for Sunday."

Tom Coughlin met the media after practice today. ?he spoke about the Manning Bowl, Aaron Ross' and Shaun O'Hara's continual battle to stay healthy and the possibility of not having Hakeem Nicks on Sunday...

Q: Obviously an easy way to beat them is to stop Peyton Manning. Defense is one thing; maybe a better way is to just keep him off the field?A: That would help, that would certainly help. The amazing thing about last week is even though the Houston team held the ball in the second half ? did a nice job that way ? he still threw for well over 400 yards and 70% completions ? and didn't throw an interception on 57 passes. So that is certainly part of the deal. You like to see, as you look back over, exactly how much time of possession other people have. However, they were 14-2 a year ago and were the lowest - the 32nd team in the League in time of possession.

Q: Do you tell your guys to not get involved in this "Manning Bowl" business?A: I don't think we have to talk about that. We really don't. Because the way I look at it, it is two exceptional quarterbacks who are trying to get their team in position to play against another very good football team in the case of the Indianapolis Colts and the New York Giants. And I'm sure the two brothers will maybe talk Friday night, maybe, and then after the game. But they are competitive and that is all that matters.

The Giants will practice this morning in preparation for their Sunday night showdown with the Indianapolis Colts.

It is a media festival this week as two of the league's most popular players - the Brothers Manning - face off in front of the whole world on prime time television (I smell a ratings winner...).? NBC executives are doing cartwheels down 6th avenue....

Not much football yesterday, but lots of talk.? The Giants practiced but did so without several players.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin loves a challenge. Why else would he still be doing this stressful job while most of his peers are out on the golf course or sitting on their porch...?

This week, the coach takes his team to Indianapolis to play the Colts on Sunday Night Football.? He met with the media before practice this morning.....

Q:? Do you think there will be any discussions between you and Eli regarding playing his brother in this game?A:? We may have a word or two about it.? But listen, the competitive aspect of this game is that their quarterback and our quarterback are both preparing for our team.? And that who we are going to play ? is the Indianapolis Colts football team.? And so that is the way that Eli will look at this ? and nothing different.? We have got to go into their place ? a domed stadium ? we have all of that to be concerned with as well.? So it's the competitive aspect that comes to the front.? And that is where it stays.

We all knew someday Peyton Manning would have to do the same for Eli.? Today he gave reporters some insight on his feelings as well as their much-publicized matchup this coming Sunday night...
