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?

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.
