Will it matter if the Giants stop Beast Mode?

The Giants #1 priority last offseason was to be able to stop the run this year. And they’ve done a good job of executing that plan throughout he 2013 season. But Sunday they have one of their biggest challenges to date – Marshawn Lynch, who I would have loved to see in Big Blue when […]

Can The Giants Be Prideful With Nothing To Play For?

Tom Coughlin was asked, twice, how he felt about playing the rest of the season knowing there would be no playoff opportunity at the end. Here’s what he said: As I’ve tried to say many, many times in the past, we have to deal with reality, too. The truth of the matter is we’ve got […]

Giants’ Coaching Staff Is … INSAAAAANE!!!

Giants’ Coaching Staff Is … INSAAAAANE!!! By Martin Alvin Some years ago, a local electronics retailer called Crazy Eddie ran a string of zany TV commercials in which his pitchman ranted like a lunatic and ended each frantic ad the same way: “Crazy Eddie!

HOW TO WIN THIS WEEKEND, FOUR QUARTERS OF GOOD OLD GIANT SMASH MOUTH FOOTBALL!

What’s Happened To The Giants Great Defensive Teams? Maybe It’s All About The Scheme Of Things?

My Opinion; at the beginning of 2011, the last Giant Super Bowl victory, the Giant defense was atrocious as players seemed out of position on almost every play. Defensive backs and linebackers were running five and six yards behind a receiver, as it appeared almost comical. Players looked at each other on the sidelines trying […]

Giants Playoff Aspirations Take A Major Hit

After the atrocious loss to the rival Dallas Cowboys, this team isn’t looking like a playoff caliber team. The offense struggled immensely, however, Andre Brown carried the team with his efforts on the ground. The defense was non-existent against Tony Romo, allowing him to pick apart the secondary play after play. The run defense was […]

Giants Can’t Hold On, Lost By Last Second Field Goal 24-21

In the game of the season, with minutes to go – the score was even at 21-21. It didn’t matter that the refs completely controlled the spotlight up until that point in the game. The Victor Cruz strip turnover had long since passed. Tony Romo’s all too easy 3 play drive been erased by a […]

Giants Run Defense Gets No Respect

I’ll get right to the point.  Since Jon Beason has come aboard, the entire NY Giant defense has seen a huge resurgence in physical play.   The other day when questioned about facing backup QB’s the last several games, Beason didn’t pull any punches.  He said: “We don’t get much props for shutting down the […]

Out of Darkness, the Giants are Closing In

Carl Banks quote from earlier this week sums up the position the Giants find themselves in perfectly. “The Giants have become the headlights in the rear view mirror seen from a distance,” he said.
