What Next for Landon Collins and the Giants?

Landon Collins might have cleaned out his locker from the New York Giants facility. Then again, he might not have. Or maybe it really doesn’t matter all that much. Reports surfaced on Wednesday afternoon that Collins had cleared out his locker in anticipation of hitting free agency. The Pro Bowl safety was apparently thinking that […]

Giants Need to Draft QB of the Future

Last year, the right choice was made by the New York Giants to select Saquon Barkley with the second overall pick in the NFL Draft. Barkley filled a present, pressing need while giving the Giants a building block for the future.  Now in this April’s draft, the Giants can secure their future for a second […]

Re-Signing Collins a Must for Giants

Perhaps as big as the decision surrounding quarterback Eli Manning, the priority for the New York Giants must be securing the long-term future of Landon Collins. No one is a bigger part of this Giants rebuild than Collins, the All-Pro safety who has been a Pro Bowl selection each of the last three years. If […]

Namath: Barkley is Must-See TV

Football Sundays have always been must-see television for Joe Namath, but nowadays it centers around a stud rookie running back. He’s the kind of talent that the New York Jets Hall of Fame quarterback says makes him stop clicking through games on his remote. The legendary Namath, who led the Jets to their only Super […]

For Giants Fan, Football is Family

Football has a way of healing and uniting. For New York Giants superfan, Joe Ruback, the outpouring of love he received in the wake of his father’s death is helping him cope with the hurt and pain. And a shoutout from the sidelines by Giants safety Curtis Riley is bringing Joe comfort as he deals […]

As Barkley Goes, So Goes The Giants

After being named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week, Saquon Barkley is beginning to show exactly why he is a generational pick at running back. Amazing how some improved offensive line play can showcase the talent of such a dynamic player. And with Barkley’s strong play the past two weeks, the New York Giants […]

Giants O-Line Gets Some Reinforcement

Last week, the New York Giants used the bye week to improve on their struggling offensive line. This week, they get to see if the addition on the o-line does anything to help. Last Wednesday, Jamon Brown was claimed off waivers by the Giants. The massive guard has 40 appearances and 31 starts in what is […]

Rivera Sees Giants as a Work in Progress

Despite all the hype around this offseason’s rebuild, the expectation of a quick turnaround for the New York Giants was never a reasonable one. And at 1-3, coaches around the league see a team that still doesn’t have an identity. Truthfully, they aren’t off in their assessment. The Giants travel to the Carolina Panthers this […]

Greco Takes Center Stage for Giants

John Greco will be the starting center for the New York Giants in Week 3 and likely for the rest of the season. The 33-year-old has played all over the offensive line in his career. Greco played tackle in college at Toledo and has played guard in the NFL. Now, the veteran is manning the middle […]

Giants Aren’t Panicking At 0-2

It is another slow start for the New York Giants, who are now 0-2 after falling to the Dallas Cowboys Sunday night. But, there isn’t concern or panic around this team. Despite the similarities and comparisons to last year’s Giants that went 3-13 and started the season 0-6, the fact that they are having a […]

Webb Waits Patiently for His Shot

Davis Webb is slated to be the backup quarterback behind incumbent starter Eli Manning this season. The second-year New York Giants signal caller won’t win the starting job anytime soon, but the 23-year-old Webb has managed to make more progress in his development despite not taking a single snap during his rookie campaign. Webb’s future […]

Maddening Ranking for Manning

At the end of the year, Eli Manning will have proven that he is anything but the No. 36 ranked quarterback in the NFL, a number that is so low that it is absurd. Several rookies and backups were ranked ahead of Manning in the recently released Madden NFL 19 player ratings, a total of […]

Giants Grab Potential Steal in Beal

The New York Giants may have just gotten another impressive addition to their NFL Draft class. Highly-touted out of Western Michigan, cornerback Sam Beal was chosen in the third round by Big Blue in Wednesday’s NFL supplemental draft. The annual event is usually considered ho-hum for most teams, but Beal’s availability added intrigue to this […]

Solder Seeing Maturity In Flowers

One of the most highly-respected offensive linemen in the NFL, New York Giants left tackle Nate Solder said he is impressed with how Ereck Flowers has handled things this offseason. So much so that he’s not sure he would handle things in such a productive and meaningful way. [Read: Saquon Barkley Smart Enough To Not […]

Depth Still a Concern For Giants

All things considered, the New York Giants have had a pretty good offseason but the rebuilding job is far from over for this team. This, even as general manager Dave Gettleman clearly maxed-out, given the team’s tight salary cap restrictions. Free agency clearly paid some dividends for the Giants who, despite having limited wiggle room […]

Giants Get Their Guy in Barkley

Dave Gettleman wanted to put his pick in two seconds after the Cleveland Browns selected Baker Mayfield first overall in last night’s NFL Draft, such was the conviction of the New York Giants general manager on taking Saquon Barkley. There was, of course, the temptation for the Giants to stray off course. This team, given […]

Shurmur: Beckham Is A Pro, Wants To Be Great

Pat Shurmur is less concerned about Odell Beckham Jr.’s past whereabouts over the last few weeks and simply excited (and likely a bit thankful) that the New York Giants wide receiver reported to the first day of offseason workouts. The arrival of Beckham on Monday ends weeks of speculation not just about the player’s tumultuous […]

Pat Shurmur Has What It Takes

Nothing that happened to the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday in their 38-7 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles should dissuade New York Giants fans from Pat Shurmur becoming their head coach. This loss wasn’t on Shurmur. But the fact that the Vikings made it to a game within the Super Bowl? Yea, Shurmur played a big role in […]

Imagine Belichick Back with the Giants?

The New York Giants will meet with New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and defensive coordinator Matt Patricia on Friday as part of their head coaching search. But there is another member of the Patriots staff they should be looking at, a name that is being overlooked and was thought to be unattainable until […]

What Looms Ahead For Eli, Giants?

In what has undoubtedly been a rough year, Eli Manning ended the New York Giants season not just with a win but also with a serenade from the fans. While this year has not gone according to plan for either Manning or the whole Giants organization, this shouldn’t be the last time Manning runs off […]

Giants Turn to Spags for Stability

On the job for less than three full days, Steve Spagnuolo has in that time period as interim head coach managed to restore a sense of stability to the New York Giants. In speaking to the media on Wednesday, Spagnuolo very confidently addressed questions for the first time as head coach. The aftermath of the […]

Shepard Making the Most of His Chance

If the New York Giants hope to turn things around during the second half of the season, they will need to get the same production from wide receiver Sterling Shepard they got this past Sunday. Shepard, despite an injury that kept him out of several games earlier this season, is building on last season’s rookie […]

Giants Can’t Catch A Break

Imagine this during the offseason: the New York Giants losing their top three receiving targets and a very important special teams’ player all in one game. It was a situation unique to Eli Manning as the Giants’ quarterback was expected to lead his team on a game-winning drive, late in the game, with just one wide receiver […]

Could Week 5 Be the 1 For Big Blue?

It isn’t a surprise to Ben McAdoo that his team is winless through the season’s first four games. The New York Giants head coach sees a team that is competing hard, but is struggling to find consistency. The Giants could very easily be 2-2, however, their last two games both ended on game-winning field goals […]

Giants Seek Improvement From O-Line

Through the first two games of the preseason, the New York Giants‘ offense has not yet clicked. The major culprit in games against the Steelers and the Browns has been the offensive line. It is an issue that head coach Ben McAdoo says needs definite improvement. Winless in their first two preseason games, the Giants […]

Giants Must Target O-Line In Draft

To steal an expression from the New York Giants team that went on to win Super Bowl XLVI, Big Blue must go ‘All In’ during this NFL Draft. And that ‘All In’ focus must be on the offensive line, which is one of the team’s question marks heading into the 2017 season. General Manager Jerry Reese can’t […]
