Thursday’s matchup Browns vs Giants Live It is not known how long, or if, starters will play. The Packers released the first unofficial depth chart on Monday, giving a clue into how camp battles are progressing. Along with the talented rookie class making their debut, Mike Pettine’s defensive unit will make its first live appearance. Mike McCarthy and players alike have praised Pettine for the improvements he’s brought to the defense.
The depth? – Do the Giants have any? They should he reasonably solid on the interior with players like John Greco and whoever doesn’t win the starting center job. However, the edges are much shakier. Chad Wheeler flashed a bit as a rookie, but needs to show much more for the Giants to feel comfortable with him as their primary backup tackle. Likewise, John Jerry is playing for his job with the Giants, and maybe his career.
Eli Manning only played sparingly in the previous two preseasons, but that could change under Pat Shurmur. Manning has reportedly been sharp in camp, and the Giants hope that continues once the hitting is for real.
