Who said this about Nicks?

From Friday June 12: “I like the way his attitude is. I like everything about what he’s trying to do here. He’s planning on staying here all summer so he can throw and catch with Eli [Manning]. He’s spending extra time in his playbook. He’s watching film. He’s doing things that veterans do. It’s awesome to see. That’s how you succeed and that’s how you make a splash in the NFL.”

These are the things you like to see. To have your #1 embrace the work ethic and NOT rest on his laurels of being selected #29, it is a VERY good sign. People turn their television on for week 1 and see a rookie make some good plays and they think it is his ability. But we here on this blog watch the Giants 24/7/365 and know enough about football to be aware of the fact that it takes a tremendous amount of dedication and effort to succeed. This rookie can push Moss to get more time in the slot. Is it crazy to think he can take the X and be next to Smith? If he works hard enough it will only be a matter of time. At the very least, it is simply an encouraging sign to see a rookie with special gifts who is willing to work. It shows a great deal of self-respect, respect for his teammates and coaches.

    If you gave me 50 guesses I would not have picked Diehl.

    Maybe he can also be a role model for the other picks, keep them around all summer, too. Who can elevate their game the most, compete with the other guys?

  3. Bob Says:

    This is really good news. We need to have 3-4 really solid WR's we can count on.

    If only Nicks & Barden could live up to their potential early in their careers.
