What Might Have Been – But Will It Ever Be?

What Might Have Been – But Will It Ever Be? By Martin Alvin On Sunday, the Giants beat the ten-point favorite, Detroit Lions, in the Lions’ own stadium; knocking them out of the 2013 playoffs. And they did it with, essentially, nothing to gain because they’d already been eliminated from playoff contention, themselves. On paper, […]

Major Giants Coaching Changes? Fuggettaboutit!

Major Giants Coaching Changes? Fuggetaboutit! By Martin Alvin Although many fans — and media types — are calling for Tom Coughlin’s head, I don’t think they’re going to get it; and I don’t think they should get it. I still think the fatal weakness of the NY Giants this season wasn’t Tom Coughlin; it was […]

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! His prices are … INSAAAAANE!!!” And I was reminded of Crazy […]

The Only Playoff Scenario That Matters For The Giants

Do the Giants deserve to make the playoffs this year? If you asked me when they were 0-6, hell no. The offseason appeared to be completely wasted, free agent signings were total busts, and injuries and other circumstances preventing players from getting on the field decimated any hope for the Giants to field a decent […]

Refs Screw Redskins. Please! Gimme A Break!

Refs Screw Redskins. Please! Gimme A Break! By Martin Alvin As everyone knows by now, the officials refereeing the Giants, Redskins game last Sunday night, screwed up with under two minutes left to play: they signaled a Redskin first down — and moved the chains to indicate a first down — when, in fact, the […]

NFC East Week 13

New York Giants In typical Giants fashion a first quarter turnover put the team in a 7-0 hole early on. While the Giants were able to mount a comeback and tie it up late in the fourth, the Cowboys were able to put together a game winning drive that ended in a short field goal. […]

It’s Official, Giants Fans: The Fat Lady Is Singing!

It’s Official, Giants Fans: The Fat Lady Is Singing! By Martin Alvin Back in the late 1970s, Robert Blake played detective Anthony Baretta in the TV series Baretta, and one of his trademark expressions was: “it ain’t over ‘til the fat lady sings.” Well, as far the NY Giants are concerned, the fat bitch is […]

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 […]

This Giants Offense Lives and Dies with Andre Brown

Since Running Back Andre Brown has been back for the New York Giants, this offense has been incredibly efficient. The running game finally has a face, and that is helping Eli Manning find open receivers. Through the first 6 weeks of the regular season, the Giants hadn’t had a reliable option at the running back […]

Giants Continue To Win … Ughh-Leeeeee!

Giants Continue To Win … Ughh-Leeeeee! By Martin Alvin With great adversity comes great opportunity. And the Giants are in a position to do something great because of the adversity they created with their 0-6 start. If they can somehow dig themselves out of the grave they dug, and parlay that into the playoffs; they’ll […]
