Here's what Benton posted from Giants center Shaun O'Hara talking about this week's workouts and the labor situation:
"It's good to get football back on the brain. It was an opportunity to teach the younger players. Aside from being teammates, a lot of us are friends and it was a great chance to bond this week. Guys appreciate that."
"The business side of the league is never pretty for the players and it's never pretty for the fans. This is the ultimate manifestation of that. There's no more respected an owner than John Mara. What the players love about him is that he's not in it for the business, he's in it for the game. The problem is that there are 31 other guys who all have to agree on the same thing."
