    Oneida Indian Nation, of Upstate NY, Begins Radio Campaign Against "Redskins"

    The Washington Redskins have an offensive nickname. It's one of those things we'll look back on 20 years from now and find absurd. For now, however, there is debate, there is publicity, there is a radio ad campaign. The Oneida Indian Nation, which is based in Verona, New York, has bought thousands ... More >>

    Tom Coughlin Boasts of the "Superior Preparation" of His 9-7 Team

    Hope you caught Tom Coughlin on The Daily Show last night, plugging his new book, Earn the Right to Win: How Success in Any Field Starts with Superior Preparation before a beaming Jon Stewart (obviously a Big Blue fan).

    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

    There's nothing wrong with the Dallas Cowboys that gutting the entire coaching staff and starting over from scratch with a course in football fundamentals wouldn't cure.
