The article focuses on the football team New York Giants and some of its key players. Rookie RB Brandon Jacobs has had success as a short-yardage specialist but also needs more polish. He runs too high, and that prevents him from powering through the initial hit. Though officials ruled TE Jeremy Shockey never had possession of a would-be reception in overtime against the Seahawks, he has greatly reduced his drops in key situations. Shockey has good size and power, but he should use his elusiveness to make defenders miss.
