Glendale, Ariz. -- No one on the New York Giants will say the team's offense has improved after losing Tiki Barber and Jeremy Shockey. Maybe that's because everyone is so used to those high-profile personalities doing all the talking. Still, it seems more than a coincidence that quarterback Eli Manning has guided the Giants to the Super Bowl a season after their all-time leading rusher (Barber) retired and more than a month after their Pro Bowl tight end (Shockey) broke his leg. Nicknamed "Easy," Manning had a rough initiation to the league because Barber and Shockey dominated the huddle, which seemed to overwhelm the fourth-year quarterback at times.

The Rev. Mark H. Shockey, a former pastor of Free Methodist churches in Carroll and Baltimore counties and retired city public schools educator, died of pneumonia Tuesday at a hospital in Jamestown, N.Y. He was 75. Mr. Shockey, a former Milford Mill resident, was born in Fairfield, Iowa, the son of a Free Methodist minister. As a youth, he lived in Spencerville, Montgomery County, where he graduated from high school in 1944. After earning an associate's degree from Roberts Junior College in Chili, N.Y., he earned a bachelor's degree in education from Greenville College in Greenville, Ill. Mr. Shockey also took ministerial courses while a student at Greenville, and was ordained a deacon in the Free Methodist Church in 1948.

Admittedly, the prank that someone in the New York Giants' Albany training camp pulled is garden-variety preseason stuff, but that the victim was tight end Jeremy Shockey just makes it seem funnier. The excitable and often impolitic Shockey was not pleased to find out after he slipped his hand into a receiving glove that someone had slipped in dye similar to the stuff banks put in special bags of money that covers the crooks. Shockey, who now sports a purple hand, reportedly had a terse message for the unidentified culprit.

A team two years removed from the Super Bowl has leaned on a rookie tight end for inspiration and offense this season. Jeremy Shockey hasn't disappointed the New York Giants in either area. From the first day of training camp, coach Jim Fassel knew the Giants had something special in Shockey. "You don't know until he gets here and really gets going," Fassel said. "But I guess that first day he reported in and I was finishing dinner, walking around with my cup of coffee, and I saw that fight break out, I knew that my man was here.

1. Shockey factor In Week11, Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey torched the Redskins for 11 catches and 111 yards. Shockey leads all tight ends in receptions (49) and is second in receiving yards (563) to Tony Gonzalez (577) of the Kansas City Chiefs. He will test the linebacking corps of Jessie Armstead, LaVar Arrington and Kevin Mitchell. 2. Start fast, end strong The Giants have outscored their opponents 33-9 in the first quarter. But then they taper off, scoring just 53 points in the fourth compared with their opponents' 95. A solid beginning hasn't been Washington's forte, as opponents are outscoring the Redskins 61-33 in the first quarter.

When he broke into the NFL in 2002, the New York Giants' Jeremy Shockey was a new-age tight end who threatened to redefine the position. Two years later, the position is defining Shockey. In the transition from former coach Jim Fassel to current coach Tom Coughlin, Shockey has played a more traditional tight end role on the Giants' offense. Where once he lined up like a wide receiver, now he lines up tighter to the formation. He is used more often as a blocker in blitz protections than as a playmaking receiver.

I'm going to come clean Maybe I'd feel differently if I owned Tiki Barber. Maybe then I wouldn't be in a two-game fantasy free-fall, either. Let's just say, you know it's not your week when one of your starting running backs gets thrown out of the game before it starts. To be fair, I had a hunch it wasn't my week when I plugged in William Green as a starting running back. And when I saw that I was up against Peyton Manning. Ouch. But this week has been promising so far. For one, I said goodbye to Koren Robinson, who I happily dropped like Nicolette Sheridan's towel.

ASHBURN, Va. - Fans either love him or hate him, and the New York Giants' Jeremy Shockey has generated similar mixed feelings from the Washington Redskins defense. Some players - like linebackers Jeremiah Trotter and Jessie Armstead - are eager to shut down the second-year tight end. "Anytime you deal with a tight end like that, it makes it hard on you," Armstead said. Shockey is "a guy that can stretch the field. We know we're going to have to face him, but we're looking forward to the challenge."

The race to win the NFC West this season may be decided by a war of attrition. It's not even Labor Day and already the division is riddled with key injuries, one nasty holdout and general ineptitude. As defending division champs, the San Francisco 49ers have to count on a quarterback, Jeff Garcia, who has a bulging disk in his back. Garcia can't get on the field to learn new coach Dennis Erickson's offense yet, and when he finally does, he might not last long. Trying to restore their Super Bowl profile, the St. Louis Rams are playing quarterback roulette in a contract stare down with Pro Bowl tackle Orlando Pace.
