Eli Manning Colin Cowherd’s Number 2 M.V.P

  You read that right.  I was watching Sportsnation on ESPN (or rather flipping through channels and I saw Eli’s picture) and heard Colin Cowherd and the other co host (I know her name is Michelle Beadle, but was not sure on the spelling and I am too lazy to look it up right now) […]

Plaxico Is In Jailaxico

Note: This post originally appeared in my personal blog, The Blog of Champions. I thought it was appropriate to post it here as well. As you may know, Plaxico Burress has begun to serve his jail sentence, almost two years on weapon charges. As a Giant fan, it’s a pretty stunning fall. He caught the game winning […]

Burress Heading to Jail:

From ESPN and the AP One-time Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress was sentenced to two years in prison Tuesday for violating New York’s stringent gun laws and was immediately taken into custody following his hearing. Burress agreed to a plea deal last month and pleaded guilty to a lesser firearms charge. The charges stemmed from […]

The value of short passes: explained, then illustrated.

Flashback to Eli Manning on September 9 talking about how to handle the Redskins Defense stacking the box: “I think we have receivers who can make plays. Guys who can get down the field, guys who can break tackles and we are going to see what the defense is doing and make our adjustments. If […]

“Pundits” Are Clueless. I Don’t Want to Name Any Mike and Mikes, I Mean Names

I think National analysts are clueless (and not just Mike and Mikes, there are so, so, so many more). I just happen to think that Mike and Mike who have four hours to talk, a huge production staff, and very good incomes should be much more informed than they are currently.  THE most frustrating thing […]

Redskin Nation predicts win in NY

Larry Michael, who has never ever picked against Washington in his tenure as host of Redskins Nation, has once again worked his magic and picked the Redskins to beat the Giants this Sunday on the road in NY with a score of 28-14. Michael predicts an offensive explosion on Washington’s part, while the Giants might […]

Nicks Will Be Part Of Opening Receiver Rotation:

From ProFootballTalk.com A lot of attention was placed during the preseason on who would win the starting wide receiver jobs on the Giants.  The answer may not matter because the top four Giants wideouts will all get on the field plenty. Steve Smith and Domenik Hixon figure to start, but Mario Manningham and rookie first-round […]

Coughlin Hopes Teams Stack The Box:

From the New York Post: If Tom Coughlin ever engaged in trash talk, it no doubt would involve explaining the need to double-bag his garbage. Still, considering the source, this qualifies as a small verbal salvo. Asked yesterday about the likelihood opposing defenses — in a show of disrespect for the Giants’ young receivers — […]

My favorite quote yet

From QB Eli Manning responding to a question about the Redskins stacking the box this Sunday: I think we have receivers who can make plays. Guys who can get down the field, guys who can break tackles and we are going to see what the defense is doing and make our adjustments. If I can […]

The Zorn Report

Here are some highlights from comments made this morning by Jim Zorn of the Redskins while talking about preparing for the season opener against the Giants: How has Andre Woodson helped your team this week? (laugh) He is kind of running the scout team, obviously, and I think that is probably the way that he […]
