I went to both practices on Tuesday and figured I'd share some thoughts/observations. Please take them with a grain of salt as I didn't always have a great view and wasn't watching all the action and probably don't know what I'm talking about half the time.
-JPP was much more physically impressive looking in person. I won't pretend to know how well he did in the drills and whatnot, but when I first saw him walk by I was shocked. I expected him to be a lot weaker looking compared to the other D-Linemen.
-Aaron Ross looked fantastic to me. Had one awesome interception and a few other passes defensed.
-However, T. Thomas was just as good... dare I say that CB could be a strength? As long as everyone stays healthy. God I hate saying that.
-I didn't see the Nicks injury happen, nor did I even know about it until I read about it today. He walked right by me after the second practice and I didn't notice a limp (but I wasn't looking for it either)
-I saw Barden make several nice catches, always with his hands extended from his body. However I also saw him get jammed pretty easily.
-Steve Smith is really good. He broke my ankles while running routes and I was just standing there.
-Eli had at least 2 deep ball that he severely under threw, one to Smith and I think the other was to Nicks.
-Sorgi looked capable, although he has the thinnest legs I've ever seen on a football player.
-Andre Brown looked really good to me. I saw some really nice cuts from him.
-Boss looked slower than I remember. I wonder if the hits/injuries are adding up.
-After the second practice, 2 Giants (who I'll keep anonymous) came into the convenience store that I had just gone into. While I was in line, they were buying a bunch of chewing tobacco and my buddy asked them about it and one said "half the team chews it". I found that surprising.
If I think of any more tidbits I'll add them later.
