Giants Wide Receivers
Most position battles are relatively meaningless developments until late July, when training camps begin and players focus on preparing for the upcoming season. Coaches deliberating position competitions usually consider each players? entire body of work?career production, minicamp performance, injury history, work ethic, physical attributes, potential for growth?but the decision ultimately rests on a given players? level of preparedness heading into week 1. Whichever player best exhibits the qualities needed at his position to help his team win when the regular season begins should get the nod over his competitors. It?s pretty simple. These predicaments exist on most every NFL roster and they are for the most part altogether good problems to have. Multiple players fighting for a single spot leads to intense competition, the kind that brings out the best and most consistent effort in each competitor. Even defending Super Bowl champions need to resolve these sorts of issues, and the 2012 Giants are no exception.

The Giants receivers believe they can take advantage of a shaky Houston secondary that has given up eight passing touchdowns already this season. New York enters the game No. 9 in the NFL in passing yards per contest with 235.5.
Houston is allowing 337. 8 passing yards per contest, the worst in the NFL by over 30 yards. Overall, the team is allowing opponents to rack up 408 yards per game. In their four games, opposing quarterbacks have thrown for: 433, 426, 284 and 278 passing yards. While some of that passing yardage can be attributed to teams falling behind and having to try and keep pace with Houston?s potent offense, it doesn?t account for the all-around struggles in the secondary.
