Midway Statistical Review

  The follwing stats are taken directly from and their main site writer, Michael Eisen.   Before we get to that though, I want to point out something disconcerting. There is a lot of talk about communication problems on defense, and even worse is every time the media asks defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan about […]

Giants Saints Preview. Giants Roundtable week 6

How bad was the Giants Raiders game last week? We’ll in many markets the Giants-Raiders game was replaced at halftime by the Lions and Steelers.  The Giants-Raiders replaced by another game that a team had no chance to win…that’s how bad the Raiders were in the game. That should not be the case this weekend […]

DeOssie To Short Snap:

From The Star Ledger: Asked what the difference between snapping for field goals and punts is, Zak DeOssie cracked, “About eight yards.” Translation: DeOssie, who has served as the team’s long snapper for two seasons, doesn’t foresee any hitch in taking over short snapping duties in the wake of Jay Alford’s knee injury. Alford, who […]

Tynes Hurt Again:

From Ralph Vacchiano: The Giants are currently without a kicker. Lawrence Tynes, the lone kicker in camp, is currently sidelined with a strained groin. He said he’s not exactly sure how he hurt it, but it happened just prior to Monday night’s practice. During that practice, on an extremely wet field, he made 2 of […]

Position Breakdown: Special Teams

This is the last of our position breakdowns. You can find the others here. While this isn’t really a position, Special Teams is still a very important group on the team. The Giants are great at two thirds of special teams–kicking and punting. After that, the return game is a big question mark.  KICKER: Lawrence […]

Giants Draft Do’s And Don’ts:

One week from now the Giants will have completed the first two rounds of the draft.   I hope they follow some of these suggestions. Do’s –         Add a veteran receiver (10 rookies will not make this team, trade some picks and get a proven NFL caliber receiver.) –         Add depth to the offensive line and secondary.  […]

Carney Likely Not Back

From Pro Football Talk: The New York Giants don’t plan to retain kicker John Carney and will rely solely next season on Lawrence Tynes, according to the New York Daily News. The 44-year-old Carney, who kicked three field goals in the Pro Bowl as the oldest player to ever play in the league’s annual all-star game, is an unrestricted free agent. Tynes’ knee […]

DeOssie Heading to Pro Bowl!

From Newsday:   “Giants long-snapper Zak DeOssie has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl roster and will complete the Giants trifecta on field goals and extra points. Although he normally only snaps to the punter during Giants games, DeOssie will be used on kicks. He’ll snap to holder/punter Jeff Feagles, who will hold for […]

Eagles Upset Giants, Move to NFC Championship

Making like last year’s Giants, the Eagles beat the Giants 23-11 to advance to the NFC Championship game against the Cardinals. The Eagles, entering this game with a ton of momentum, took advantage of the Giants inability to score touchdowns, and convert on 3rd downs. A downright ugly game for the Giants, they went 3-13 […]


From K Lawrence Tynes is active for the Giants today, meaning he’ll handle kickoffs and perhaps long field goals while John Carney does everything else. Smart move, considering the Giants are healthy enough that they don’t need to dress extra players at a bunch of positions. Tynes has been active for only two games: […]
