Justin Tuck, Jon Beason, Jerrel Jernigan Do Best To Play Way Into Roles With Giants Next Season, Not So Much For Nicks And Brown
It wasn't pretty, with poor play and injuries on seemingly every play, but the New York Giants accomplished their goal of winning seven of their final 10 games by beating the Washington Redskins Sunday afternoon. The 20-6 home victory gives the Giants a 7-9 record to end the year, impressive considering the team started the season with six straight losses. This season as a whole was a battle of attrition for the Giants, with several players trying to survive and play their way into new deals and roles next season. Wide receiver Jernel Jernigan, defensive end Justin Tuck and linebacker Jon Beason played their way into that conversation. Nicks and Andre Brown? Well, they both likely played their way out of town.

Redskins at Giants Preview: Giants Close Disappointing Season At Home Against Washington With Chance To Finish With 7 Wins In Final 10 Games
The 2013 football season for the New York Giants and their fans comes to an end Sunday afternoon against the Washington Redskins. In a hugely disappointing season, the Giants can't finish with a .500 record and could end up with double-digit losses if they lose at home in the season finale. On a positive, a victory would give the Giants seven wins in their final 10 games, which is impressive for any playoff team in the league. Here's our in-depth look into the regular season finale between NFC East rivals Sunday afternoon.

Looking at the big picture, the New York Giants overtime victory over the Lions Sunday didn't mean much. The Giants have long ago been eliminated from the postseason, leaving most of this season to be played for nothing more than pride. But the Giants 23-20 win was one of the better moments of the season.

If the Giants can upset the heavily-favored Lions, they likely end whatever hope Detroit had at winning the division.

Seahawks 23, Giants 0: Antrele Rolle Calls Out Offense After Another Terrible Performance By Eli Manning And Company In Shutout Loss
Giants coach Tom Coughlin was exactly right when he said after the team's loss to the Seattle Seahawks Sunday that it was "a pathetic offensive performance." In no uncertain terms, the Giants offense lost this game, totaling just 181 yards and turning the ball over five times in a 23-0 defeat. But it was safety Antrele Rolle that had the most disparaging comments, directed at the offense. Rolle, who is having a Pro Bowl-type season, didn't hide his displeasure with the offensive performance, which has been downright pathetic for the entire season.

Seahawks at Giants Preview: Giants Host One Of NFL's Best Teams As Seattle Comes Into MetLife Stadium, Here's How Giants Can Pull Upset
Sunday afternoon might not be the only time the Seattle Seahawks play a game at MetLife Stadium this season. The Seahawks, in town to play the New York Giants for a 1 p.m. game, are the favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, which will be played at the Meadowlands in February. The Giants won't have the opportunity to play any more meaningful games over the final three weeks of the season, as their playoff hopes were ended last week. This will be a chance to prove they aren't that far off from one of the best teams in football, however, as the Giants could set up a solid stretch of football to close the regular season and build momentum going into the offseason.

Chargers 37, Giants 14: Postseason Chances Finally Come To An End For Giants After Road Loss In San Diego, Handing Out Game Falls, Game Balls
The New York Giants finally ran out of chances to stay in the postseason race Sunday night, losing to the Chargers in San Diego which eliminated them from playoff contention. Even though the Giants made it interesting by winning five of their previous six games before this week, the 0-6 start to the season was a killer and something the team couldn't overcome.

Giants At Chargers: Eli Manning Goes Head-To-Head With Philip Rivers As Giants Try And Keep NFC East Title Hopes Alive In Must-Win Game
Eli Manning and Philip Rivers have been in the league so long many young fans might not even realize the two quarterbacks will forever be connected. Back in the 2004 NFL draft, almost a decade ago, the San Diego Chargers held the No. 1 overall pick while the New York Giants had the fourth pick. Both teams needed and wanted a quarterback, but the problem was Manning publicly refused to play for the Chargers, even if they did end up drafting him. Well, the Chargers drafted him anyway, making for some very awkward photos of Manning holding up the San Diego jersey after the announcement. But it didn't last long, as a blockbuster trade was already in the works.

Giants Get Must-Have Victory Over Redskins To Remain Alive In NFC East Title Race, Handing Out Game Balls To Justin Tuck, Eli Manning, Victor Cruz, Will Hill And More
The best part about this New York Giants team is they refuse to quit. Whether that's because they don't realize they are a long-shot to make the playoffs or they just want to play and win football games no matter the circumstances, it's a quality all winning football teams must have. The Giants proved it again Sunday night in a 24-17 victory over the Washington Redskins. With the win the Giants keep their slim NFC East title hopes alive.

Giants At Redskins Preview: Giants Must Beat Washington To Stay In NFC East Race Or Their Season Is Over, Here's How They Can Win
Just last week this Sunday Night Football game between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins could have been a showdown of teams seeking to get closer to the top of the NFC East standings. But losses by both teams last week has made this a battle to stay out of last place instead. The Giants lost their biggest game of the season last week to Dallas, blowing the chance to move within one game of the NFC East lead and tie the Cowboys for second place. But now the Giants' season is on life support with a 4-7 record and facing an insurmountable three-game deficit in the division if they can't beat Washington.

Cowboys 24, Giants 21: NFC East Title Hopes Dealt A Near Death Blow As Giants Fall Two Games Back In Race, Handing Out Game Balls & Falls
Just like that, the Cowboys had completely changed the game and stole momentum away from the desperate Giants. Dan Bailey kicked the game-winning field goal for the Cowboys with no time left and the Giants were dealt a momentum-crashing loss, 24-21, one that likely ends their hopes to make a run at the NFC East title. The Giants fell to 4-7 with the loss and trail both the Cowboys and Eagles, who are tied for the lead with 6-5 records. The two-game deficit is worse considering only five games remain in the season.

Cowboys At Giants Preview: If Giants Want Stay To NFC East Title Race, They Must Beat Dallas Sunday At Home, Here's How They Can Win
The New York Giants have done what many thought they couldn't after starting the season 0-6 - becoming relevant in the NFC East title race. Winning four games in a row has put the Giants just 1.5 games back of the Eagles for first place and one game behind the Cowboys for second. If the Giants win Sunday, they will be just one game out of the division lead and a playoff berth. But the Giants will be tested for the first time during their win streak Sunday against the Cowboys.

Giants 27, Packers 13: Giants Beat Packers For Fourth Straight Win, Move Within 1.5 Games Of NFC East Lead, Handing Out Game Balls
What should frighten every team in the NFC East right now is the left-for-dead New York Giants could be the best team in the division. It's hard to argue with that statement, especially after the Giants defeated the Packers 27-13 Sunday night. After losing their first six games of the season, the Giants have now won four straight and are just 1.5 games back of the Eagles for the division lead. The real test of just how good these Giants are comes next week, when the Cowboys come into MetLife Stadium. The Cowboys are 5-5, a half-game back of the Eagles, who beat the Redskins Sunday to take over the NFC East lead at 6-5. Philadelphia is off next week. Washington is 3-7 and on life support.

The Giants may be getting the breaks, with the biggest being playing in a division where the leader is just 5-5 on the season, but the team still must win the games on the field. They have been doing that the last three games, rebounding to a 3-6 record after losing their first six of the season. If the Giants can win this game against Green Bay and the Redskins beat the Eagles, they will be just one game out of the NFC East race.

It might not have been overly impressive, but the New York Giants did what they had to do Sunday afternoon against the Raiders - win. As long as the Giants keep on winning, they will be in the hunt for the NFC East title as the season draws closer to its end. The Giants are now 3-6 on the year, tied with the Redskins for third place in the division. The Eagles beat the Packers to improve to 5-5 and the Cowboys lost to the Saints Sunday night to drop to 5-5. While the Giants' victory over the Raiders wasn't a perfect showing, it was an example of what can happen when the team plays their brand of old-school football. Giants football.

Raiders At Giants Preview: Giants Can Continue Unlikely Climb Back Into NFC East Race With Victory Over Oakland, Here's How They Can Do It
Of course, the Giants have to take care of their own business before worrying about what the rest of the division is doing. The Raiders aren't going to scare anyone, but they did come up with a big upset of the Chargers in Week 5. Last week, Oakland was torched by Nick Foles in a 49-20 loss to the Eagles. The Giants, even though favored by more than a touchdown, can't take anyone lightly.

Giants Analysis: Best Moments Of Giants Season At Midway Point, Including Trading For Jon Beason, Beating Minnesota, Staying Alive
The New York Giants have already suffered through one of the worst seasons in team history. They lost their first six games, have been a turnover machine on offense and were unable to stop anybody on defense in the early going. And with all that, the Giants have a shot to win the NFC East as the team heads into the bye week with a 2-6 record. It's not going to be easy, and it might be darn near impossible, but thanks to a weak division, Big Blue at least has a shot at the midway point to back into the playoffs. The season has been full of moments, both good, bad and ugly, and here's our look back at the best moments of the first half of the season.

Giants 15, Eagles 7: Giants Suddenly Back In Hunt For NFC East Title After Beating Eagles For Second Straight Victory, Handing Out Game Balls
The New York Giants just might turn out to be the luckiest team in NFL history, not that the organization or fans will ever apologize for it. In six days, the Giants have gone from a team dead to rights on making the postseason, with losses in their first six games of the year, to one just two games out of first place in the NFC East, after beating the Vikings and Eagles in back-to-back weeks. Not only did the Giants come up with an important 15-7 road victory over the Eagles, they were the only team in the division to win Sunday, meaning they made up a game in the standings on each of their rivals. The Giants are 2-6 on the season and trail Dallas (4-4), Philadelphia (3-5) and Washington (2-5).

Giants At Eagles Preview: Giants Can Keep Faint NFC East Title Hopes Alive With Road Victory At Philadelphia
The New York Giants may be clinging to a pipe dream of having a shot at winning the NFC East crown and backing into the playoffs this season, but a little bit of hope is a whole lot better than no hope at all. The Giants got their first victory last week against Minnesota, now they need to put together a long win streak if they truly want to have a legit shot at playing into January. The Giants have to find a way to beat the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday afternoon to keep the season alive. If they lose again, there will be nothing good to say or write about the team. The season will be over, even with eight games remaining. Not even the most die-hard and optimistic fan will be able to spin it any other way.

Giants 23, Vikings 7: Finally, Giants Pick Up Their First Victory Of Season After Beating Terrible Vikings Team, Game Balls & Game Falls
It wasn't the prettiest game ever played, but for the New York Giants and their long-suffering fans, Monday night's 23-7 victory over the Minnesota Vikings was as beautiful as it gets. Nobody will want to watch the tape again, but the fact the Giants finally have their first victory of the season makes this a memorable game. The Giants certainly got help from an utterly pathetic showing by the Vikings offense and quarterback Josh Freeman, who somehow was given the starting nod over Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel. Freeman was terrible and finished completing just 20-of-53 passes. He had a whopping 33 incompletions. The Giants certainly did everything they could to rattle him on defense, but they got a lot of help from the Vikings coaching staff for a horrible decision to start the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.

Giants Vs. Vikings Preview: Eli Manning, Banged-Up Giants Try Again For Season's First Win Monday Against Adrian Peterson, Vikings
The New York Giants' winless start to the season has been bad enough, but if you throw in a loss Monday night to the Minnesota Vikings, things could get real ugly. After all, if the Giants can't beat a one-win team at home, playing against a quarterback who's had just two weeks to learn the playbook, who can they beat? Falling to 0-7 could change the team's future plans as well. But the Vikings are beatable, with a 1-4 record and former Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman starting for the first time since being signed. Freeman starts over Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel, even though he might not have a full grasp of the playbook, or even the players he'll be throwing to.

Giants Analysis: Why The Giants Should And Shouldn't Trade Wide Receiver Hakeem Nicks
The Giants do have one huge decision to make within the next two weeks. Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks will be a free agent at season's end and is sure to pull in a big-money contract either from the Giants or someone else. General manager Jerry Reese and company are going to have to figure out quickly whether or not they want Nicks back next year. If they do, they need to lock him up with a new deal as soon as possible. If they deem him expendable, then the talk must begin quickly of whether or not to trade him.

Bears 27, Giants 21: Eli Manning Throws Three More Interceptions As Giants Fall To 0-6 For First Time Since 1976, Game Falls & Game Balls
The New York Giants played their best game of the season Thursday night against the Bears in Chicago. They rushed for a season-high 123 yards, including 106 by Brandon Jacobs. The offensive line was solid for the first time this year, allowing quarterback Eli Manning to get hit just once in the game. The offense converted on 7-of-11 third downs. The defense allowed the fewest points they had all season. And the Giants lost. Again.

Giants At Bears Preview: Eli Manning, Giants Go To Chicago On Short Week Searching For First Victory Of Season
No 0-5 team in NFL history has made the postseason, and very few are giving the Giants a chance to be the first team to buck that trend. But Giants quarterback Eli Manning isn't among those writing this season off as a failure just yet. The two-time Super Bowl MVP might seem a little naive to believe the Giants can make the playoffs, but he's not as crazy as one might believe.

Eagles 36, Giants 21: Season Goes From Bad To Worse To Dead After Blowout Loss To Philadelphia Eagles Drops Giants To 0-5
Reality for even the most optimistic New York Giants fans had to set in after quarterback Eli Manning threw his third interception of the fourth quarter Sunday afternoon. The pick was the final nail in the coffin in the Giants' 36-21 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles at home, a loss that dropped the team to 0-5 on the season. That nail in the coffin could be for the entire season as well, as the Giants would need a complete miracle to even be in the conversation as a playoff team later in the year. No team in NFL history has started a season 0-5 and made the postseason. But there should be no mention of playoffs and the Giants again this season. The Giants are flat-out one of the worst teams in football.

Giants Vs. Eagles Preview: Two Worst Scoring Defenses Face Off As Giants Try To Save Season One Last Time
Coming into the year, the Week 5 matchup between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles would have been considered an early litmus test for who would rise to the top of the NFC East. But this Sunday's game represents something completely different. The Giants and Eagles are a combined 1-7 this season, have the two worst scoring defenses in the league, and both are already fighting to stay relevant. It's nowhere near what everyone believed this matchup would have shaped up to be just a month ago.

Chiefs 31, Giants 7: Season Goes From Bad To Worse After Another Blowout Loss Drops Giants To 0-4 On Year
For those who believed the New York Giants would finally find their rhythm on the football field Sunday afternoon against the Chiefs, the end result was another shocking reminder this just might be one of those years to forget. The Giants actually played exponentially better Sunday than they did last week against the Panthers, but still lost the game 31-7 in Kansas City. That fact might be most troubling of all, as the Giants played better, yet still lost by 24 points.

The Giants can't keep losing and expect to be in the postseason race at the end of the season. The turnaround has to begin soon. It just might have to start Sunday. But that isn't going to be easy, as Big Blue takes on the undefeated Chiefs in Kansas City. Lose that game and it will be nearly impossible to make the playoffs, as the Giants would have to go 8-4 the rest of the way just to finish the season with an 8-8 record. Win it and the Giants will be right back in the thick of the divisional race.

Panthers 38, Giants 0: Season Already On Brink After Giants Suffer Worst Loss Of Tom Coughlin Era In Carolina
There's nothing good about starting a season 0-3. History is against any team in the NFL that wants to make the postseason after such a terrible start. But three games has never made a season, and it's way too early to write anyone off that early in the year. With the way the Giants reached that record Sunday afternoon in Carolina, however, nobody can look at the bright side of things.

Giants At Panthers Preview: Giants Can't Afford To Start 0-3, Especially Against Winless Carolina Panthers
Even though history has shown there isn't much hope for a team to make the postseason after an 0-2 start, this New York Giants season won't hit critical mass unless the team can't find a way to beat the Carolina Panthers Sunday. Only 12 percent of teams that started 0-2 since 1990 have made the playoffs, and over the last four seasons, none of the 30 teams that started winless made the postseason. But the Giants are one of the teams that did it, back in 2007 when they won the Super Bowl. So, holdovers from that team can let the others know it's possible. In today's NFL, however, the past means nothing and can't be used as a crutch for what lies ahead in the future.

Broncos 41, Giants 23: Eli Manning, Giants Already In Serious Hole After Loss To Peyton Manning, Broncos
Over the last four seasons, there have been 30 NFL teams that started with 0-2 records. None went on to make the postseason. The Giants are going to have to buck that trend now, as they lost 41-23 to the Denver Broncos Sunday afternoon. Of course, while that piece of history is against the Giants, there is one big piece the team made sure to mention and use as a rallying cry in the locker room after the game.

Broncos At Giants Preview: Forget Manning Bowl Hype, Giants Need Win To Keep History On Their Side
The New York Giants game Sunday against the Denver Broncos is so much bigger than just Manning Bowl III.

Eli Manning threw short to running back Da'Rel Scott, but he wasn't ready for the pass and it bounced off his hands. The football landed right in the arms of Brandon Carr, who returned it 49 yards for a game-clinching touchdown. It was the Giants sixth turnover of the game. The Giants finished with a 36-31 loss that ended their dominance in Dallas and started this 2013 season just like last season ended, with utter disappointment.

But there's no better place to find out those answers than with a divisional rivalry game to open the season. Good or bad, the Giants will have a good handle on where their season might be heading after this game. With that, here's our preview of the opening Sunday night game of the season.

The New York Giants couldn't have had a better start to their preseason rivalry game with the New York Jets Saturday night.

But while the Giants will be getting their final look at the starting offense and defense before taking the field for real in Week 1, the Jets will be still trying to figure things out. The better position to be in is obviously the Giants, as every team should have both their starting offense and defense all but set and ready to play at least the first half. That's exactly where the Giants are.

The first Game Balls and Game Falls edition of the new season doesn't come with a triumphant return for the defending NFL champions, but rather a rude awakening at home.

The New York Giants went with offense again on Day 2 of the NFL draft, selected LSU wide receiver Rueben Randle with their second round pick. The Giants actually talked about taking Randall at the end of the first round, so they are obviously happy he fell to them in Round 2.

As the defending Super Bowl champions, the New York Giants knew they would get the opening night slot as the new NFL kicks off, but the opponent has been unknown. Until now. The Giants will take on the rival Dallas Cowboys Wednesday night, September 5, at MetLife Stadium.


It's been a relatively quiet free agency period for the New York Giants, but the team has made some good moves even though they're not blockbuster signings. Perhaps the best move the organization made so far was signing tight end Martellus Bennett from the Dallas Cowboys.

Giants release Brandon Jacobs: For Giants fans, this news cuts deep
It might be business as usual for general managers across the NFL, but either way you look at it, it hurts to watch the Giants and running back Brandon Jacobs part ways. Business is business, and it always will be. What can you do? When money is the point of argument there's no telling what might happen.


With free agency starting March 13, the Giants, like many other teams, will be looking for ways to improve their roster. In order to do so one pervading truth must always be self-evident; keep the good ones and cut the bad ones loose. There's a handful of Big Blue members the G-men need to keep and a few others they can let walk. In short we pay him or slay him.


The Giants will make their way through the Canyon of Heroes Tuesday morning with a ticker-tape parade, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced Sunday night. The parade will start at Battery Place and Washington Street starting at 11 a.m.


We're handing out game balls after the Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 21-17, to win Super Bowl XLVI. The Giants are your world champions.


Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw could have been the biggest goat in Super Bowl history - for scoring a go-ahead touchdown in the final moments. Bradshaw broke free up the middle against the Patriots defense and had a clear path to the end zone from six yards out. With Giants players screaming at him to take a knee at the one-yard line, Bradshaw turned and fell into the end zone.


First there was the David Tyree helmet-catch in Super Bowl 42, now there is Mario Manningham's tight-rope 38-yard sideline grab in Super Bowl 46. Both will be equally remembered as great plays in not only Giants history, but Super Bowl history as well.


If there was any question as to whether or not Giants quarterback Eli Manning was indeed elite or not, it was emphatically answered in Super Bowl XLVI. Manning was simply outstanding in the game, leading the Giants to a 21-17 victory and world championship. But it was his play in the clutch that puts him in the upper echelon of quarterbacks.


Here's our quick Thoughts & Observations from the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVI. The New England Patriots lead the New York Giants 17-15.


Here are our Thoughts & Observations from the first half of Super Bowl XLVI from Indianapolis. The New England Patriots lead the New York Giants 10-9.


The Super Bowl is just hours away but there already is some interesting news coming out of both camps, and it's not good. Both the Giants and Patriots, teams that already aren't the most popular in the league, committed what easily could be considered personal fouls Saturday.


We all knew Super Bowl XLVI would come. But who'd have guessed even less than a week ago that we’d be entertained by a replay of one of the most exciting Super Bowls in recent history – Super Bowl XLII – in another New York vs. Boston showdown.


We're handing out game balls and game falls after the Giants defeated the San Francisco 49ers in overtime, 20-17, to win the NFC Championship game. The Giants now advance to the Super Bowl in Indianapolis two weeks from now against the New England Patriots.


If we learned anything from the conference championship games Sunday night it was special teams matter. Big time. The Baltimore Ravens are going home because of theirs', as a 32-yard field goal attempt that would have sent the game to overtime was badly missed by kicker Billy Cundiff. The Giants, on the other hand, are going to the Super Bowl because of their special teams.


Anyone who’s watched the New York Giants since Week 16 has to be asking, “Is this team destined to be in the Super Bowl or what?" After all, who lives like this? Which team in the NFL do you know plays mediocre and inconsistently throughout the regular season only to enter the playoffs and then start blowing teams suddenly and without explanation out of their socks?


The New York Giants' 37-20 victory over the Green Bay Packers in an NFC divisional playoff wasn't without its game-changing, momentum-shifting plays. In fact, there was a season's worth of moments on the frozen field at Lambeau Field. Here's a breakdown of the seven big moments that led the Giants to the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers next Sunday.


We're handing out game balls and game falls after the Giants defeated the Green Bay Packers, 37-20, in an NFC divisional playoff game Sunday. The Giants now advance to the NFC Championship game against the San Francisco 49ers. And, yes, we'll get to the terrible officiating as well.


As much as the Giants claim to own New York, especially when they are playing in an NFC divisional playoff game against the Green Bay Packers, this week proved otherwise. Here's the day-by-day breakdown of a week that should have belonged to the Giants, but had them regulated to secondary status.


When the 2011 NFL season began, many figured the road to Super Bowl XLVI would go through Green Bay. Certainly, however, no one figured it would be the New York Giants that would be the team driving through.


The Giants may have been set as 8.5-point underdogs for their NFC divisional playoff game next Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, but don't tell that to Jason Pierre-Paul. The Giants defensive end basically guaranteed his team would beat the top-seed in the NFC, saying he was "100 percent" sure Big Blue would advance to the NFC championship game.


We're handing out game balls and game falls after the Giants defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 24-2, in an NFC wild card playoff game Sunday. The Giants now advance to the divisional round to play the 15-1 Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. Already, Big Blue is listed as a 10-point underdog. I'm sure the Giants don't care about that right now.


The best thing about this year’s NFL playoffs is that the New York Giants are in it. That hasn’t been a statement you could make since Big Blue was eliminated by Philadelphia in a windy divisional playoff game in the old Meadowlands Stadium in 2009. It’s hard to believe with all the talent the Giants roster has boasted in recent years that they’ve been absent from the postseason for three years, but that is the case.


The hottest part of the flame is blue. Why? Because it’s the most energized. It’s simple science. Right now the hottest team in football is Big Blue — the New York Football Giants.

Giants playoff possibilities: NFC East will be won Sunday night against Cowboys
It doesn't get any bigger than the New York Giants hosting the Dallas Cowboys with the NFC East title on the line in primetime Sunday night. The stakes are simple for both teams - the winner goes to the postseason as division champs, while the loser goes home and is eliminated from playoff contention.


You couldn’t ask for a more exciting finish to a season: two divisional foes duking it out in the final game of the season — winner takes all while the loser pulls up some sofa and watches the playoffs at home like the rest of us.


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Make no mistake, this was a monumentally huge game for the New York Jets. As much as the Jets could have taken a huge step toward the postseason, and that is the ultimate goal, this game was all about breaking free from the other New York team once and for all.


GameDay's Brad Carroll and Steve Morton go back-and-forth in anticipation of the biggest Jets-Giants game in history Saturday night, where the winner will take a big step toward qualifying for the playoffs, while the loser most likely will not make the postseason at all. Got a response or comment of your own on the rivalry? We want to read it in the comments section below.


Giants fans expecting a big finish from Big Blue may be in for a giant disappointment. In fact, we may have already seen the end to the New York Giants' season.


They say identity theft affects one in every six Americans. Add the New York Giants to the recent list of victims. Two weeks into the 2011 NFL season and its as if someone robbed the Giants of who they once were.


I’d like to say I didn’t see that coming. But then again maybe I did. Maybe deep down inside every Giants fan was already aware that their team wasn’t firing all cylinders entering into Sunday’s NFL season opener in Washington. Maybe we all knew it, but we didn’t want to accept it.


This is getting a little out of hand now. The Eagles have confirmed the signing of former New York Giants wide receiver Steve Smith. The deal is reportedly for one year. Just hours ago Giants coach Tom Coughlin said Smith was still nowhere near ready to play football this season. The Eagles, however, don't care about that and have signed the wide-out. Now, the question is, when will Smith get the chance to touch the ball in that very talented offense when he is able to return from microfracture knee surgery.


Can someone let the New York Giants know the NFL lockout is over, because obviously the team has no clue they can sign players during this hectic offseason. Big Blue, if you can still call them that, has done absolutely nothing since an agreement was reached to open free agency. Well, except to tell a player's agent to seek a trade for them.


The standoff between the Giants and Osi Umenyiora could be on the verge of reaching new heights of acrimony. The Newark Star-Ledger, and other outlets, are reporting the Giants have rescinded their offer to Umenyiora's camp to seek a trade partner for the team.


Last week, the main question surrounding the New York Giants was will they or won't they sign Plaxico Burress. That ended with a thunderous, and embarrassing, "no" as the receiver went to the Jets. This week, the prime query is will they or won't they ship out disgruntled defensive end Osi Umenyiora.
