The objective of preseason is to two things -

1. Solidify your 53 man roster via Darwin's Theory; "Survival of the fittest."

2. Get your team to meld and think as a unit.

So I ask a simple question - Why aren't the Giants passing the ball in preseason play, when we all know that our weakest link is the receiving game? 

In two games, Ramses Barden and Hakeem Nicks have combined for 5 receptions...I thought they were our future??

Jon Gruden made a wise comment in tonight's preseason match up between the Jets and the Ravens.. "Are these the Ravens? Joe Flacco is getting in to a groove with his receivers..They (the Ravens) know they can run the ball...Now they're getting some real consistent passing work."

Attention Kevin Gilbride -  Please take note and put in some more pass plays so our receivers can gel with Eli..WE ALL KNOW WE CAN RUN THE BALL!
