Boley: Giants will be fine after lockout

By ESPN.com staff

The New York Giants seem optimistic about their chances to succeed following a lockout, according to a story by Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com.
Justin Tuck said last week that he planned on contacting teammates to make sure they were working out so that once the lockout ends, the Giants will have a head start on some teams.

Tuck says the Giants are equipped for a fast start because they kept head coach Tom Coughlin and his staff intact and they have several veterans expected to return from a 10-win team.

Linebacker Michael Boley agrees with Tuck’s assessment.

“For teams who have come into this offseason with let’s say a new head coach or offensive coordinator or defensive coordinator, they don’t have much time at all,” Boley said on Sirius NFL radio. “They have time amongst coaches to get a game plan together. As far as implementing that and getting it to your players and then working through it, they don’t have that.”
