The last time these two teams met, it was a battle for the number one seed in the NFC conference, and the two teams did not disappoint. The Giants ended up overcoming deficits of 11 points in the third and 8 points in the fourth quarter to go on and win that game.
Of course, you cant compare a preseason game to an end-of-the-season regular season game, but still this game does not go unoticed....mainly because it will be on ESPN.
The Gmen are 1-5 in preseason games against the Panthers, with their last win coming in 2005.
As of now, the unofficial depth chart has the WR depth chart looking like this.
3. Mario Manningham
4. Sinorice Moss
5. Derek Hagan
6. Ramses Barden
7. Hakeem Nicks
8. David Tyree.
Look for all these guys to get considerable looks from all four Giant quarterbacks throughout the game. Hagan at five I guess is a bit of a surpriser, but he is a veteran, and has had a good camp thus far. Barden and Nicks have to prove themselves, and the preseason is the perfect platform for them to do so.
Another note has rook Andre Brown as the unofficial third string RB over Danny Ware.
This depth chart, although released by the Giants PR people, is unofficial and can change quite quickly depending on the practices this week.
