EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants owner John Mara believes the team that opens training camp Saturday could be as successful as the franchise's last Super Bowl champion two years ago.
Mara spoke glowingly Thursday in a pre-camp press conference at the team's training center next to MetLife Stadium.
``I look at us on paper and I think we're just as good as that team,'' he said. ``I look forward to every year and it's been a long offseason for us, but we're all ready to get back to work.''
The Giants finished 9-7 last season, and in second place in the NFC East, but failed to make the playoffs.
``If we hopefully stay healthy, we have a chance to be just as good as anybody,'' Mara said.
