Giants top Pats to end preseason
Safety Shaun Williams – He clinched his spot on the roster, not that it was ever really in doubt, with a leaping interception in the end zone and good all-around play. He also delivered the hit of the game in run support.
Safety James Butler – The rookie free agent should be a lock after yet another sack and a special teams tackle.
PR Mark Jones – Had some good returns in his first action in weeks, including no trouble whatsoever in fielding the ball.
QB Jared Lorenzen – He wasn't perfect by any stretch, but he made some good throws and got the Giants into the end zone with a laser to Jamaar Taylor. Also threw a perfect long pass to Tim Carter on his first drive, but Carter dropped the pass.
QB Jesse Palmer – Staked his claim to the third QB job when his first pass was a 46-yard beauty to Taylor in stride near the goal line.
LB T.J. Hollowell – An interception return for a touchdown and solid special teams plays could be the path to a roster spot.
CB Frank Walker – Capped a rough preseason with a sack and forced fumble.
A few players hurt themselves as well…
Safety Brent Alexander – With Williams playing well, all Alexander could muster was a dropped INT.
QB Tim Hasselbeck – Yes, he completed 5-of-9 passes, but he couldn't get the first team offense into the end zone against the Pats second defense. He often held the ball too long and was sacked when he should have been able to throw the ball away.
LT Bob Whitfield – The veteran had his second straight poor outing. He was called for multiple penalties and was also cleanly beaten off the line at least once…
Also, it now seems that the week two Giants/Saints tilt scheduled for the Superdome in New Orleans will be played at Giants Stadium that weekend, mostly likely Saturday night.
