Tom Coughlin addressed the media today about various team issues — and wouldn’t you know it — someone asked about the Giants red zone issues. Here’s what he said: Tom, you’ve been able to get into the green zone, but for some reason it just doesn’t click when you get in there. How frustrating is […]

Ranking the Giants: Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

We’ve been Ranking the Giants all week, and now we’re onto the wide receivers and tight ends. With Plaxico Burress and Amani Toomer gone, someone was going to have to step up. No one knew who it would be. Luckily, many Giants did. Let’s Rank The Giants, Wide Receiver/Tight End Style STEVE SMITH: What can […]

David Tyree Heads to Foxborough

NFP caught up with former Giant WR, Special Teamer, ehem, Superbowl Hero… and now current Baltimore Raven David Tyree. When reminded of the famous helmet catch that setup the Superbowl winning drive for the Giants, Tyree said: “Now when I see it, it’s a quick snapshot back in time that, for me, causes me to […]

What Went Right: Wide Receivers

Coming into the season many people belived that the New York Giants would be very good along the Offensive line and defensive lines, and that they were solid at Quarterback (but had over-paid their Quarterback) and that the Giants would be terrible at Wide Receiver. Hard to imagine now, but I had a friend (who […]

Sorry Plaxico No Work Release For You:

Steve Smith Is Five Catches Away From Giants Record:

From The NYPOST: Smith is on the verge of becoming the Giants’ single-season reception leader. He has 78 catches and needs five more to break Amani Toomer’s record of 82 set in 2002. Setting a new standard on Sunday against the arch-rival Eagles in a game that could be for a share of first place […]

Unpacking The Win: Atlanta

It’s true that a win is a win, and the truth about the way the Giants played Sunday night is that Giants fans have a whole lot to feel good about heading into the thick of the schedule and wind things down to the playoffs. Unfortunately there is also plenty to feel bad about, too. […]

Giants/Eagles Preview: Roundtable Week 8

Hey, Hey, everybody! Welcome back Giants Roundtable Week 8. The New York Giants haven’t faired too well the past couple of weeks facing two dyanic passing offenses. The Giants have also bogged down on offense which worries me more because there is not help on the way. The defense eagerly awaits the return of three […]

Talking Points Cardinals-Giants

I’m stunned to be quite frank. I thought this was going to be a fairly lopsided win by the Giants who would come back with a vegenance. Knowing that Arizona traditionally has not traveled well (I think they are 5-14 before last night in their last 19 road games) and given that I thought the […]
