1. McAdoo is firing up the offense. New offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's demeanor at practice is just like the system he is installing: fired up. About to wrap up their first week of training camp, players are adjusting to the speed that McAdoo wants. "It's like looking at a ceiling fan and watching that one fan; you can actually slow it down," running back Rashad Jennings said. "So studying -- inside and out -- my playbook, the game becomes second nature."

2. McClain in, Beckham out. Linebacker Jameel McClain, who left Tuesday's practice with a foot/shoe issue, practiced for the second day in a row and looked like a full-go on Thursday. Meanwhile, wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. did not practice due to a sore hamstring.

3. An undrafted rookie made the play of the day, perhaps camp, so far. With one hand, wide receiver Corey Washington out of Newberry College pulled in a deep ball from Curtis Painter through two defenders during the team portion of practice. Was it the best play of training camp so far? Watch and decide.

4. Practice was shortened to enable a full-speed Friday. The Giants cut short Thursday's practice for a "recovery stretch" period inside the field house at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center. "What we've done is we studied the GPS information, which helps us structure the practice and to know when we should be doing things such as [stretching] and cutting down reps on the field," Tom Coughlin said. "The whole purpose is to be able to come back and have a full-speed practice tomorrow."

5. Uppers tomorrow, full pads on Sunday. The Giants close out the week with their fourth training camp practice on Friday when the players will put on shoulder pads. Then, after a players day off on Saturday, the Giants return on Sunday in full pads for the first time this summer. Let the fun begin.
