    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 >>

    Jets Have Bigger Problems Than Tim Tebow

    If you love ESPN's Stephen A. (Smith) and SNL's Jay Pharoah as much as I do, you got a big charge out of the sketch on Saturday night's Weekend Update segment.

    Big Blue's Path To Two-Peat Starts With Dallas

    The Giants take the field tonight in the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys as a four-point pick, and the fans and local press seem to pretty much agree that Big Blue has an excellent chance of repeating as Super Bowl champions.
