Michael:
Rashad Jennings set season highs with 22 carries and 81 yards on Monday night. Will he continue to receive that type of workload moving forward or will it be more of a committee approach?
-John

Dear John:
Offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo was asked that very question this week. His response was, "We'll see how the game goes." Which means…who knows? My guess is Jennings will be the first back to get multiple carries. If he is productive, the Giants will stay with him. If not the committee could return. But that will not be determined prior to the game.

Michael:
Is Dwayne Harris already the best returner in Giants history?
-Brian

Dear Brian:
Harris has been extremely impressive, and is the Giants' best kickoff returner in a while. But to call him the best in the 91-year history of the franchise before the end of his first season is going a little too far. That designation likely belongs to one of two players: Clarence Childs (1964-67), who returned 126 kickoffs for a Giants-record 3,163 yards, a 25.1-yard average, or Rocky Thompson (1971-73), who had 65 returns 1,768 yards, a franchise-record 27.2-yard average). Childs, Thompson, and Willie Ponder are the only players in Giants history with two regular-season kickoff return touchdowns.
