ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The Super Bowl-champion New York Giants reported to training camp just the way coach Tom Coughlin wanted — humble, looking to improve and hoping to take the next step toward building a dynasty that others in their own division can only chirp about.
The last few players checked in Thursday at the University at Albany for a day that would be highlighted a picnic for fans and officials followed by an afternoon team conditioning evaluation. Practice is scheduled to start Friday.
While the Giants (13-7) won their second title in five seasons in beating the New England Patriots in the title game in February, they were an ordinary team until they got hot late and won their final six games.
It’s why many question them heading into 2012.
