Who Is On Your Mount Rushmore Of Giants Nation?

Recently a lot has been made about ESPN’s interesting chat about who would be on various Mount Rushmore of professional sports leagues. You know Mount Rushmore right – that National monument sculpture carved into the granite face of a mountain near Keystone, South Dakota. (Yes we looked it up on Wikipedia). So today we throw […]

How Jon Beason could become Giants’ next Lawrence Taylor

It’s early October, and the Giants are struggling. Not just struggling to the Giants standards, we’re talking Jaguars struggling. A Giants team that appears to be decimated of any clear-cut leaders on both sides of the ball, and opposition scoring at will on Perry Fewell’s non-existent defense. Fresh off being dismantled by a winless Panthers, […]

Do You Remember… Bruce Johnson’s Pick-6 In Dallas?

One of the reasons the SNF Giants @ Dallas game was so special to watch is because that game had everything — great passing, great running, back and forth scoring, suspense, surprise — and great defensive chess matches to watch unfold.  The latter is the focus of this weeks ‘Do You Remember…’ segment. Shortly after […]

Do You Remember… Eli Manning @ Dallas Home Opener?

I’ve got quite a problem here this morning — the Dallas Cowboys are on my mind.   If I lived in Texas, it might be another day in paradise.  But I don’t.  And it’s not…. and I’m not a Cowboys fan.  In fact I strongly dislike that football team (read ‘Hate them with a passion’).  What […]

Do You Remember… Ahmad Bradshaw’s 10 Yards Per Attempt?

Hey there everyone — it’s been a while since my last post, but I’ve been on a much needed vacation with no internet access. I’m just back from a week long fly fishing expedition up in the Northern Adirondack Park section of the great state of New York. It is an annual father/son trip, but […]

Do You Remember… Two Giant Touchdowns Against Dallas

Truth be told, either one of the following highlights could have their own dedicated post on my new weekly segment “Do You Remember…” — but I think you’ll soon understand why they’re here together today.  In fact, you may be wanting even more footage from this game but I don’t want these little glimpses of […]

Do You Remember… Eli Manning @ WAS?

Certainly you remember this critical matchup last year, a huge game on the road for the Giants to keep their playoff hopes alive juxtaposed against a meaningless, snow covered, flailing Redskins team under the futile direction of Jim Zorn. By the analysts’ accounts it was one of the biggest ass kickings of any first half […]

Do You Remember… Hakeem Nicks’ Redemption?

Hey gang.  Every Friday from now on until the preseason starts, I’d like to take a few moments and remind us collectively of a some the best highlights the Giants were able to produce last season. I’m going to title the new segment — “Do You Remember…” followed by the specific item we should keep […]
