Check out what WR Hakeem Nicks said to the media this afternoon.

Q: How are things developing between Eli Manning and the wide receivers?

A: I think overall we still have work to do. It is still early in training camp. We just have to keep doing what we need to do to get better.

Q: Do you think the offseason workouts have helped so far in camp?

A: I think it definitely helped but I don’t think it has helped as much as if we would have had OTA’s. We are here now so we have to put the timing in now on and off the field and get the job done.  

Q: How much time do you need considering you are about to play in a week?

A: I think it is just going to go over the course of time and practice. Each week it is going to progress more and more.

Q: How has camp been so far?

A: We still have guys figuring out the ins and outs right now. It is going to all come together.

Q: How do you feel about going up against the Eagles?

A: You definitely have to look at it as a challenge. That is a great secondary that they put together back there but that is apart of being an elite football player. You have to look forward to the challenge and stepping out there and competing.

Q: Do you still feel that people are looking for answers from this receiving corps?

A: I don’t really think about what other people are looking for. I know what I can do and control what I can’t control and what I can get better at.

Q: Does it make you angry that people are saying they didn’t get Plaxico Burress, now Kevin Boss is gone, Steve Smith is a question mark, what are these guys going to do?

A: You can look at it in a negative way, but I don’t ever take it negatively. Step up to the plate and do what I have to do.

Q: What did you think when you heard Kevin Boss was leaving?

A: That’s a decision that he made, great person and the best of luck to him.

Q: How does that affect you?

A: He definitely played a big role at tight end, but we have guys that are going to step up and fill that void.
