Rough Year For The Defensive Line:

I will never be an excuse maker for poor play but as I was reading today I began to put together a list of injuries to the defensive line of the Giants from this and the previous season.  They are in no particular order. Jay Alford was lost to a torn anterior cruciate ligament during […]

No Canty at practice

Chris Canty was not at practice today. T-Rock has the take: The big guy who strained his calf in practice yesterday was not on the field or even with the team this morning for practice. He was likely inside the building receiving treatment. That’s certainly a blow to the defensive line rotation that was in […]

Five Keys to Beating the Redskins

I still can’t believe football is almost here. It’s been way, way too long. That said, we have to dive right in. The Giants take on the Redskins this week, and while most experts I see have the game ending up with the Giants taking the win, the Redskins are still a formidable team, and […]

Jay Alford Out for Season

According to Mike Garafolo of the Star-Ledger, defensive tackle Jay Alford will undergo surgery on his knee, and will be placed on season ending injury reserve. Bad break for Alford. He was becoming an important part of the Giants defensive line. I suspect that the Giants will try to sign a defensive tackle off the […]

Giants “Lining up” with a 515

The New York Giants are exprimenting with a new defenseive alignment predicated on getting full use out of all the defensive linemen. People are calling it the 5-1-5 as in 5 linemen, 1 linebacker, and five defensive backs. In practice it has gotten Kiwanuka one one side and Umeinyora and Tuck on the other end […]

Fred Robbins Had Microfracture Surgery

This from Vinni DiTrani of the Bergen Record (and reported elsewhere as well): DT Fred Robbins has started a blog, and in his latest entry mentioned this his off-season knee surgery was “microfracture surgery,” which can be serious at times. It’s the type of surgery from which Jason Sehorn had a tough time returning, and […]

Evans Has Giant Shot At Defensive Line:

From Ralph Vacchiano: Maurice Evans (48) is seeking redemption and is trying to latch on with the Giants. Maurice Evans swears he doesn’t think much about what could have been in his life, but it had to be on his mind at least a little on draft day when the Buffalo Bills made Aaron Maybin […]

Giants Will Not Trade Kiwi For Braylon Edwards

I have been reading rumor after rumor about a trade involving Mathias Kiwanuka and Braylon Edwards. Sorry to burst your bubble but according to Bob Glauber of Newsday that will not be happening. A league source with knowledge of the Giants’ situation informed Glauber that the Gmen will not be trading Kiwi for Edwards. As […]

Giants Ink Canty to Six-Year Deal

According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News the Giants and Chris Canty have agreed to terms on a six year contract worth $42 million with $17.5 million in guaranteed money. The Giants are calling him a “defensive lineman” because they see him playing both tackle and end positions this season. Canty, a […]
