Big Blue Morning: Last ride for many Giants
By Dan Graziano ESPN.com
Your daily morning check-in on news and notes about and of interest to the New York Giants.
The news of the day: The game Sunday against the Redskins could be the final one in a Giants uniform for long-timers like Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, David Diehl, Hakeem Nicks and others. Tuck says the fact is on his mind, even as he works to focus on trying to win the game. Nicks is a free agent too, and doesn't appear to have the support of the coaching staff anymore after playing as poorly as he has in his contract year. Nicks' possible replacement, if such a thing is on the roster, is Rueben Randle, who missed Thursday's practice with a knee injury.
Behind enemy lines: The quarterback for the Redskins on Sunday will be Kirk Cousins. But the quarterback of the Redskins' future is still Robert Griffin III. And whoever's coaching him next year, his current offensive coordinator believes he'll have plenty of success.
Around the division: The Cowboys appear to be playing games with their quarterback situation, refusing to admit that Tony Romo won't be able to play due to his back injury. Eagles coach Chip Kelly says his team won't be taken in by any attempts to confuse the situation.
Around the league: We'll go around the league today on "NFL Insiders" on ESPN at 3 p.m. ET. I'll also be on the 11 am ET SportsCenter, talking about league-wide issues including the Cowboys-Eagles game. Tune in, DVR it or whatever it is you do. Hope you enjoy.
