Camp Tip Sheet: Headed to HI and Must See TV

Here follows TGI's ultimate primer for training camp '09 as the Giants look to reach the top of the NFL mountain once again. This is the final installment covering who is headed to Hawaii for the Pro-Bowl as well as the must see games of the 2009 season outside of the division.

Camp Tip Sheet: Headed to Hawaii

Osi Umenyiora – He's back – and he's better than ever. The season off due to injury only served to allow Umenyiora to improve his leg strength. As if he could get much better from his Pro Bowl level, Umenyiora looks ready to have a tremendous 2009 campaign.

Michael Boley – Yes, Michael Boley. We know he's hurt and is going to miss a whole bunch of camp and has also been suspended for the season opener. But Boley can flat-out play. The Giants will use him correctly, unlike the majority of his time in Atlanta. Playing the weak side, he's going to be in position to make a boatload of plays.

Brandon Jacobs – With the two big receivers gone, the onus to run the ball is going to be even stronger this year. Expect Jacobs to average his gaudy 5.0 yards a carry like he did last year. But with an additional 50-75 carries, he's going to be Honolulu-bound.

Camp Tip Sheet: Must-see TV

Oct. 4 at Kansas City (FOX) – Say what you will about road warriors, but playing three straight games on the road is a lot to ask of any team. Fresh off tough, physical matches in Dallas and Tampa Bay, it'd be very easy for Big Blue to take this game a little lightly. They had better not.

Oct. 25 vs. Arizona (NBC) – Sunday Night Football against the defending NFC champs? It doesn't get much better than this. Yes, it's time to buckle up for another Eli Manning/Kurt Warner battle.

Nov. 26 at Denver (NFL Network) – Giants fans hope this AFC battle against the Broncos won't lead to Thanksgiving evening indigestion. This will be Big Blue's first trip to Denver in close to a decade.
