Giants Sign Carson Butler

Giants made a minor move today, signing Tight End Carson Butler to a future contract (meaning he gets invited to training camp in 2010). Butler is 6’4, 260, and has been with the Lions, Bengals and 49ers since being undrafted out of Michigan. Not sure how he fits into the Giants future plans. May just […]

History Of The New York Giants (1930-1939)

Continuing with the History of the New York Giants today I will be focusing on the Giants of the 30’s. 1930: Near the end of another impressive second place 13-4 season Head Coach LeRoy Andres was replaced by Bernie Friedman, and Steve Owen. Following the season Owen takes over the job full time and would […]

2010 Giants Opponents:

The 2010 Giant opponents are almost set.  In addition to their NFC East games, they will host the Bears, Lions, Jaguars, Titans and the third-place team in the NFC South (currently the Panthers). They will play non-division road games at Green Bay, Minnesota, Houston, Indianapolis and Seattle. It looks like Manning vs Manning again next […]

Giants Add Running Back Off Waivers and Make Cuts:

From NYDailyNews The Giants added a running back today, but it wasn’t the one that was expected. Rather than promote Allen Patrick from the practice squad, the Giants claimed Gartrell Johnson off waivers from the San Diego Chargers. The 5-11, 218-pound Johnson was the Chargers’ fourth-round draft pick out of Colorado State (He’s from Miami […]

Giants Bears Halftime Thoughts

For some reason, the Giants didn’t look as sharp as they did against Carolina. Maybe it’s the short turnaround, but they just didn’t look sharp. Defense wasn’t getting as much pressure. Offense didn’t look as crisp. Just a flat, uninspired effort so far. But, it’s good that it’s the preseason. This is the time to […]

Giants Might Enter Lotto

From Bob Glauber of Newsday: Less than a week after NFL owners passed a resolution allowing teams to sign licensing deals with state-sponsored lotteries, two NFL teams have already signed up for lottery deals. The Giants could be next. The Patriots and Redskins announced deals with Massachusetts and Virginia respectively, and a Giants official told […]

Giants Almost Had Jeremy Maclin:

From Mike Garafolo: The Giants said they didn’t trade up in the first round of this past weekend’s draft because they didn’t want to reach for a wide receiver. It turns out they were closer to reaching — and to a different player — than they let on. Before drafting North Carolina’s Hakeem Nicks with […]

Otis Wiley Signs With Detroit, Not With Giants

It had appeared that Safety Otis Wiley had signed a free agent contract with the Giants. He did not. According to mlive.com, Wiley has signed with the Lions. We might hear a lot of these over the next few weeks. The Giants don’t officially announced undrafted free agents until they sign the contract and pass […]

Edwars to Giants? Not yet, not so fast.

From profootballtalk regarding the Edwards to the Giants reports   A rumor is making the rounds that the Browns might soon send receiver Braylon Edwards to the Giants, for a first-round pick and a fifth-round pick. Several readers have pointed this one out to us, attributing it to ESPN 950 in Philly.  One of the […]

Possible Trade Partners

With draft day quickly approaching I was looking at some possible trade candidates and this is what I came up with. The Giants have 10 picks in the 2009 NFL Draft and no way 10 rookies make this team. With the Giants being so close and extra picks to burn why not trade up if […]
