Meet the New York Giants


Mario Manningham

WR (82), 6-0, 185, 4th season, Michigan

Made only one catch at San Francisco, but was for 17-yard touchdown ... Has TD catch in all three postseason games this year ... Injuries shortened his regular season, limiting him to 39 catches and four TDs ... Like Nicks and Cruz, a threat to break long gains.

Jake Ballard

TE (85), 6-6, 275, 2nd season, Ohio State

Developed rapidly in second pro season after having virtually no role as rookie in 2010 ... Replaced Kevin Boss (left for Oakland as free agent) and had 38 catches for 15.9-yard average and four TDs. Boss had only 28 catches for Raiders ... Knee injury slowed him late in season, but he has played in all three postseason games.

David Diehl

LT (66), 6-5, 304, 9th season, Illinois

As versatile as they come, Diehl has played all over offensive line ... A fifth-round pick in 2003 who has started nearly every game since ... Pretty good pass protector, but struggled against San Francisco last week ... Has become radio personality as host on SiriusXM.

Kevin Boothe

LG (77), 6-5, 320, 6th season, Cornell

Previously a backup at several positions, has settled in at left guard ... Sixth-round choice of Oakland in 2006, was waived before 2007 season and signed by Giants ... Moved over to center for a few snaps at San Francisco.

David Baas

C (64), 6-4, 312, 7th season, Michigan

Signed as free agent to replace popular veteran Shaun O'Hara, who was cut ... Second-round selection by 49ers, opening pick of that round in 2005 ... Started every game but one for past three seasons ... Had head injury against Niners last week, left and then returned.

Chris Sne

RG (76), 6-3, 305, 8th season, Boston College

Son-in-law of coach Tom Coughlin ... Most consistent of Giants' blockers, although tends to draw penalties ... Second-rounder in 2004, 34th overall, and has been starter virtually every week since ... Very strong.

Kareem McKenzie

RT (67), 6-6, 330, 11th season, Penn State
