Kevin Gilbride has lots of weapons at his disposal, even if the team missed out on Plaxico Burress. They re-signed RB Ahmad Bradshaw, grabbed another TE in Ben Patrick and, if you look at their roster, have tons of talent and speed at the skill positions.
The Giants' offensive coordinator met the media at TIMEX yesterday to discuss the state of his offense (keep in mind this was before the Giants announced that Ahmad Bradshaw was returning):
Q: Is the installation, the things you do early in camp, is it any different because you didn?t have mini camps and OTAs this year?A: It?s different only in the sense that instead of this being the third time that you?ve gone through something ? once in your OTAs, the second time reviewing it in minicamp, this is the third time through ? now it?s the first time. For the older guys it?s more of a, ?Oh yeah, that?s right, I forgot.? Or you?re chipping off a little rust. For the new guys, it?s the first time you?ve ever heard it. Trying to reconcile the pace with new guys who have never heard any of this stuff before with the guys who, you know, you?re ready to work on the refinement and the nuances of some things can be a little bit challenging. What we?re trying to do, to the best of our ability, is go at the same installation pace that we normally do. What we?re getting a chance to do is review it twice ? once going in, practicing and then coming back and doing it in the morning. To date so far, I think we?re doing pretty well. As it continues to go on, we?ll see.
