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 […]

What Giant fans should hope John Mara learned about hosting the Super Bowl?

My opinion; that Met Life Stadium finally came to life – it was so loud that the announcers almost couldn’t hear – energy – pageantry – vibrancy – colorful fans screaming on every play – fireworks – music – noise – that is the essence of the National Football League. Not a dull gray lifeless […]

Giants Co-Owner Jonathan Tisch Hopeful Region Can Host Game Once A Decade

The NY/NJ Super Bowl Host Committee officials assured that the NFL’s first cold-weather, outdoor Super Bowl will proceed without a hitch, set a precedent for future Super Bowls, and hope to be the first of many for the region, Jorge Castillo of the Newark Star Ledger reports. “Hopefully when we do all the tallying for […]

Could Richard Shermen ever play for the G-Men?

My opinion; Richard Sherman is a loud mouth egotistical nut and one hell of a football player! Watching him on the last play of the Championship game Sunday was really remarkable considering he had a good Idea where the ball was going! The interception was really a big time play – especially batting it to […]

“Go ahead and mock my draft!” The Giants move up and draft Jadeveon Clowney!

My opinion; a player like Jadeveon Clowney, only comes along once every ten years or so at least that is what the NFL draft pundits say. So by the time the next player like Jadeveon comes along the Giants might have already won a couple more Super Bowls if they take my advice and give […]

Giants and Dolphin Offenses Suffer From The Same Issues

Dolphins OC Mike Sherman was just fired – the announcement went out to the masses moments ago. And as I read more and more about the situation in Miami I can’t help but think how similar things were in NY the past two seasons. Both offenses run progression based schemes. Both offensive lines struggled this […]

Giants to think outside the box in rebuilding for 2014. Seriously?

My Opinion; How the most conservative organization in the NFL will be able to think ‘outside of the box’ to rebuild its team and its reputation is beyond me. I have followed this team for many years and I can tell you that *they do focus groups when they decide to use a play like […]

The Giants are currently undergoing maintenance – please stand by

John Mara once said in 2009 after a failed defensive season “we cannot maintain the status quo”. Defensive Coordinator Bill Sheridan was fired shortly thereafter. Interestingly, Kevin Gilbride said this about his offense earlier in the year when talking about Eli Manning and whether he could maintain his current level of play: There is no […]

Will Kevin Gilbride Be Fired Today?

UPDATE: Kevin Gilbride will retire, not be fired. More here: The Question of the Day: Will Giants Offensive Coordinator Kevin Gilbride Be Fired Today? It all started with a report earlier in the week from the Star-Ledger that references high ranking Giants officials looking to fire offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride. With the myriad offensive […]

Happy New Year Giant Fans…lets hope for a great 2014!

Resolutions and Solutions! My opinion; John Mara’s New Year resolution should be to give Jerry Reese more power to run the organization and not less power. If Jerry Reese only got credit for two things this season it was trading for Jon Beason who stabilized the whole defense and drafting Justin Pugh who should lead […]
