    Newly Opened Bottomzup Mixes Games, Gadgets, and Grub

    Possibly the last thing you'd expect to see at a sports bar called Bottomzup (344 Third Avenue) is a raw bar, where sushi is rolled before it's delivered promptly to tables. Barely dressed women hawking wings and beer seems more likely, but the only scantily clad thing here is the shellfish. The gam ... More >>

    Giants Fans: Start Planning That Super Bowl Party Now

    You may think that the Giants hit a new low yesterday with a 34-0 thrashing at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons. But not so, I think. I think the Giants are testing a new strategy, one they worked to perfection at the end of last season. You'll recall that at the end of the 2011 regular season Bi ... More >>

    Giants Problems: Defense First

    What's wrong with the Giants?

    Jets Need Sympathy; Giants Need To Wake Up

    Watching the Giants 19-17 loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia last night, two things stood out for me. The first was how extraordinary the Giants have been in two championship postseasons.

    Jets Chances Over Patriots? Not Very Promising

    ​If you look at it on paper, the Jets have a pretty decent chance on Sunday against the Patriots. New England averages 364 yards a game on offense to the Jets 351, a negligible difference.
