Latest NY Giants News: OTAs, 100th Year Jerseys & Carl Banks Goofy Land Comments
May 22, 2024

In this episode of "NY Giants News," we delve into the Giants' 100th Anniversary celebrations, starting with the "Giants 100: A Night with Legends" event on June 20th, featuring Eli Manning, Harry Carson, Tiki Barber, George Martin, Jason Sehorn, Bill Parcells, and Tom Coughlin. Fans can vote for the greatest play in team history on the Giants website, with the winner announced during the event. On August 4th, the first 18,000 fans attending the Yankees game against the Blue Jays will receive an Eli Manning bobblehead, courtesy of Dunkin Donuts.

Throughout the summer, the Giants will celebrate their top 100 players, with Bob Papa hosting a podcast series dedicated to these legends. Fans can also look forward to a variety of anniversary merchandise, including helmets, hats, shirts, and books. Additionally, a documentary about Wellington Mara, titled "The Duke," will premiere on the NFL Network this fall.

The Giants will debut special throwback uniforms twice this season, featuring tan pants with red and blue striped socks (a 1925 throwback), a Century Red jersey with a 1933 font, and a winged style helmet (used from 1937 to 1947). These uniforms, which include a patch with the 100-season logo, have received mixed reviews.

Then, Carl Banks expressed his frustration with the relentless criticism of Daniel Jones on the Bleav in Giants podcast. Banks believes that the extreme negativity has made Jones a sympathetic figure and argues that the constant bashing is unwarranted and tiresome, given the numerous challenges Jones has faced, including multiple coaching changes.

The New York Giants' offseason workouts began on April 15th, initiating the first phase, which focused on meetings, strength and conditioning, and rehab. This was followed by three weeks of on-field workouts and drills. Now, the team has commenced the 10 organized team activities (OTAs). 

The primary goals of OTAs are to familiarize everyone with the playbook, maintain player health, allow coaches to evaluate what strategies and plays work, and foster team cohesion. It's important to manage expectations and not get too caught up in the hype.

Daniel Jones took the field, leading his team in various drills conducted primarily just outside the endzone. The first touchdown of the day was secured by new running back Devin Singletary, signaling a promising start. Undrafted rookie cornerback Alex Johnson made a notable impact by getting the first interception of OTAs. Wide receiver Malik Nabers stood out with several catches, showcasing his potential as a key target.

On Day 2, Kayvon Thibodeaux and Brian Burns were frequently seen working together, displaying promising chemistry. Devin Singletary collaborated with the offensive line to practice blitz pickups. The team drills remained focused on the red zone, especially within the 10-yard line. Notable plays included two touchdowns early on: Tommy DeVito's scramble to find Malik Nabers and Nathan Rourke's shovel pass to Miles Boykin.

The Giants' media highlighted the growing connection between Daniel Jones and Malik Nabers, although it's still early to confirm their developing chemistry. Overall, the Giants' OTAs are off to a productive start, laying a solid foundation for the upcoming season.
