Imagine a world where the New York Giants have a dominant defense and rely on their running game to provide scoring for the offense. Ball-hawking safety Antrel Rolle intercepts two passes while workhorse back Ahmad Bradshaw runs for 116 yards and a Touchdown on 27 carries.

Believe it or not, that was the storyline for the Giants last week against the 49ers. Sure, Eli Manning played as well as he usually does and could have had an even more impressive game if not for the usual few ... Read More

Oh, what a difference two weeks can make. Since I last gave my thoughts on the Giants, they proved they were for real by smacking down a weak Carolina Panthers team before showing some real struggles in a heartbreaking loss to their divisional rivals. Now, going into a weekend where they should be heavy favorites against arguably the worst team in the league, there are many concerns for New York Giants fans.

First and foremost is the injury report. With Hakeem Nicks already out for ... Read More

We’ve all seen this story before. The Giants start off slowly, Eli throws a pick or two (or in this case, three) and the defense isn’t doing much to help. Miraculously, however, the Giants still manage to stay withing striking distance, never behind by more than two or three scores.

We’re all yelling, cursing, in disbelief that the Giants could perform at such a low level, but deep down we know that the fourth quarter awaits, and with it the little switch that goes on inside Eli Manning’s ... Read More

The 27th best team in the league. The 15th best NFL Quarterback. The 21st best rushing offense in the NFL. Okay, maybe the last one makes sense. But to expect the Giants to finish 5-11 or Eli Manning to be outplayed by Mark Sanchez, Christian Ponder and Blaine Gabbert is a bit of an overreaction following a single week of the NFL season.

The Giants will get back on track tomorrow against a team that still has to find its identity. Former Rutgers Head Coach Greg Schiano took over the ... Read More

As a Giants fan standing in the upper deck of MetLife Stadium on Wednesday night, I felt a mix of emotions: anger, confusion, heartbreak, and even confidence. The Giants had just lost the first game of the season to not just a division rival, but the Dallas Cowboys. Almost everything seemed to go wrong in that game, but believe it or not, there were a few positives to be found.

Primarily, however, the game is a loss, and it put a spotlight on what I’ve already mentioned are some of ... Read More

After five months of celebration, preparation and anticipation, New York Giants football has finally returned. On the first Wednesday night game since the Rams and Lions faced off on September 22, 1948, the defending champion New York Football Giants will host the Dallas Cowboys in the annual NFL Kickoff season opener.

While there are some major concerns for the Giants, Big Blue fans have to be pretty confident coming into this game. Since the NFL Kickoff has featured the defending ... Read More

I would like to begin by apologizing for my lack of a preview for the third preseason game. I was quite busy in the hours leading up to the game, but I hope that you all managed without me.

If there’s ever a preseason game that’s telling, it’s the third one—and the Giants told quite a lot on Friday night. Although they eventually lost the game by a score of 20-17 to the Chicago Bears, the starter-dominated first half featured a 17-7 Giants lead and a host of impressive plays. Here ... Read More

Halfway through the preseason, the New York Giants are looking rather impressive. Despite some injuries and holes in the team, players stepped up and provided an outstanding performance Saturday night in the form of a 26-3 victory over the Jets. A few players were injured in the game, including Ahmad Bradshaw and Mark Herzlich, but they both practiced on Monday and look to be in good shape. Some other notes and reactions from the game:

-Eli’s interception was pretty terrible. I’m ... Read More

Preseason Week 2—Hyped up by the fact that the G-Men face off against their intrastate rivals. Yet it still is, believe it or not, a preseason game, and winning this contest means little in the grand scheme of things—particularly when Tim Tebow and David Carr are battling it out for half the game.

The Giants, fresh out of Training Camp and back at the Timex Performance Center, still have plenty of things to work on. Eli and the first team offense will get some more looks today, which ... Read More

So I started a blog on WordPress a few weeks ago, and I figured a good way to help grow it would be to share it with some sports fanatics. I'll be posting an opening excerpt of each of the articles here, and linking you to my site for the rest of the article. For now, I'll link you to the opening post in my blog, which outlines the purpose. I'll be featuring weekly previews and recaps of Giants football as well as constant commentary on Rangers hockey once the season begins.

I hope ... Read More
