    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). The clip is at the bottom of the post. One particular comment intrigued me: Coa ... 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? This is only two consecutive losses, which is no reason to panic, but when you consider that the two previous games were won by miracles - Dez Bryant's finger out of the end zone against Dallas and Eli's spectacular TD pass to Cruz late in the Washington game. Either ... More >>

    Putting A Finger On the Giants Win Over the Cowboys

    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. The headline for recaps of the Giants' 29-24 victory over Dallas yesterday mostly deal with Eli Manning's 25th come-from-behind 4 ... More >>

    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. The second is how utterly ordinary they have been otherwise in the Tom Coughlin era. Late in the 4th quarter, ... More >>

    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. Las Vegas doesn't exactly agree, at least on the latter point: ... More >>

    Giants Beat 49ers in One of Most Improbable Games in Recent History

    In addition to being one of the greatest wins in Giants history, last night's 20-17 overtime win over the San Francisco '49ers was also one of the most improbable games in recent memory.
