New York Giants Camp: Week 1

Giants camp opened this weekend and will continue through the month. The big news is that every member of the roster has signed. There are no holdouts and team unity seems high. The photo released of the training camp shirt (pictured in this post) shows the team state of mind and attitude. After the second half collapse in 2009, this is a great thing for the fans to see to start 2010.

Some things to look for as camp unfolds leading up to the clash with the New York Jets in the new stadium on Monday night, August 16th.
Keith Bulluck’s Knee
New Giant, Keith Bulluck, who is coming off ACL surgery will be one to watch in camp. The former Tennessee Titan will be making the move from the weak outside linebacker position to middle linebacker, and become the new backbone of a Giant’s defense  that gave up a ton of points in 2009. Some say that if he is 100% the NFC East Division crown is within the Giants reach. The Giant’s focus in the draft and in off-season transactions was all about the defense. That appears to be the case as camp opened as well.
Quarterback Controversy!!??
That’s right folks. You heard it hear first. There is a QB controversy in Albany at the Giants training camp. It does not involve Eli Manning though. It involves the back-up roll. Who is going to be #2 behind Eli in 2010?
Many feel that career back-up QB Jim Sorgi is going to be the man. Since 2004 he has been playing second fiddle to Eli’s older brother Peyton in Indianapolis. Sorgi has played in a few games and has 929 passing yards and six TD passes while throwing only one interception. 
However, the controversial Rhett Bomar might have something to say about who is Eli’s back-up. Rhett was drafted by the Giants in 2009 and has yet to take a snap in the NFL. The former Sooner, who was dismissed from the team for NCAA Rule violations after his sophomore season, finished his final two years of eligibility for Sam Houston State. The Giants drafted him in the fifth round, 151st overall, in the 2009 draft.
In the pre-season games leading up to the 2010 opener at home against Carolina this will be an interesting offensive team struggle to watch in a camp dominated by defense talk.
