Stephen Baker, "The Touchdown Maker" and Super Bowl XXV champion, recently joined the Giants Huddle Podcast to recount his time with the Giants and expressed his optimism for the Joe Schoen-Brian Daboll era.
Meanwhile, at the top of Baker's list to watch was rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson, a player whom Baker admitted bears striking similarities to himself. Robinson's experience at running back prior to his wide receiver career at the University of Kentucky equips Robinson with a versatility that may speak for itself in the regular season. Kadarius Toney also stood out to Baker, who said the second-year pro has something you "can't teach."
A healthy Saquon Barkley, Baker continued, will strengthen the offense with his ability to get the ball not only in the backfield but also downfield.
"There are enough balls for everyone to make plays," Baker said.
Though he expressed defense can always lead the way, Baker – a former wide receiver himself – recognizes that chemistry is the key to any team's success. When asked how the competitive receiver room can help to develop the secondary, Baker offered a piece of advice from Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells: "Play like it's game time every day."
