Question: @ManninghamNYG82 @Giants Mario: What will be the biggest difference in having training camp moved from Albany to the Timex Center? Thanks!

Mario Manningham: We practice at Timex all the time during the season so it will be the same for us. Albany is great for training camp but it is nice being back at Timex also.

Question: @Giants @ManninghamNYG82 whats the toughest part of having so little time to prepare for the season? Mental or Physical??

Mario Manningham: I would have to say the mental part is a little tougher because we didn’t have OTA’s or Mini Camps this year. Chemistry is going to be very important the next few weeks and making sure everyone is on the same page.

Question: @Giants Who is the toughest Cornerback you have faced in paractice or in game?

Mario Manningham: Broncos CB Champ Bailey on Thanksgiving 2009. He’s a crafty vet and has a great grasp of the game and it is all natural for him.

Question: @Giants Can you please ask him why he's not wearing his old Michigan number of 86?

Mario Manningham:
They gave me the number 86 at Michigan, I thought 82 looked better when I got to NY. Also, when I got here in 2008, someone else had number 86.
