Time for Revenge


Recommended Posts

No more preseason bullshit.....time to get the show on the fucking road :giants:












The pain hasn't gone away, eight months later. Just the thought of what happened at the end of last year still stings.


And yes, the Giants know that the Carolina Panthers team they'll play in the first game at their new stadium on Sunday is the same one that ended their tenure at Giants Stadium with an ugly beating last December. It may be a new year and there may be some new players, but the Giants' desire for revenge is the same.


"We definitely remember that," said Giants cornerback Terrell Thomas. "That's not the way we wanted to end our season. They ran the ball down our mouths. They just beat us down to the ground. They took the physical-ness out of us and that's what we were known for.


"That's why we're going to come out and show the league what we're about this year - being physical. If you're going to beat us, you're going to have to out-physical us."


The 41-9 thumping, followed by a 44-9 meltdown in the season finale in Minnesota, left a bitter taste in the Giants' mouths after a 5-0 start turned into an 8-8 non-playoff season.


"I think it's something that's motivated us since we started this offseason," said left tackle David Diehl. "The way that you end your season, that's what you remember the most. For us, we didn't end our season in any good way possible. It wasn't what we expected."


So when the schedule came up and the Panthers were invited back for the new stadium opener, you can bet the Giants' players took notice.


"The only way to take care of those memories is to take care of things now," Diehl said. "We have to take care of the present. We're ready to do that."


BACK IN ACTION: Shaun O'Hara "felt good" in his return to practice yesterday and he's hoping to play Sunday. But he also admitted he's "frustrated" by an Achilles strain he knows he'll have to deal with all year long.


"We're just going to have to monitor it," O'Hara said today. "It's definitely going to be one of those things that if it does act up, what do we do during the week to try to take care of it? I don't think it's going to be something that is just miraculously going to be gone."


CORNER WOES: Two of the Giants' top three cornerbacks - Aaron Ross (foot) and Corey Webster (groin) - did not practice yesterday. Tom Coughlin wouldn't commit to either of them being ready to practice tomorrow. He did say, however, that the reports on Ross' recovery were good, but he was having an issue with finding a shoe that will ease the pain of his plantar fascia tear. ... LBs Gerris Wilkinson (groin) and Phillip Dillard (hamstring) also did not practice
