The Giants were the smaller disaster, so let's handle them first. They were next-to-the-last in the entire league on defense, meaning 31 out of 32 teams in yards/allowed. That's going to take so much shoring up before next season that it's hard to know where to begin.
And yet, that may not be Big ... More >>
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 >>
What will the Giants be doing in the locker room before their Sunday revenge match with the Cowboys in Dallas? My guess is their eyes will be glued to the TV watching Robert Griffin III leading the Redskins against the Steelers at Pittsburgh. If the Giants and the Redskins both win Sunday, New York ...

You may have missed it, but there was a stimulating back-and-forth on ESPN on whether Eli Manning should be the frontrunner for this year's MVP. The debaters were Stephen A. Smith, Skip Bayless, Rob Parker and Eric Mangini. The main attraction of the show, of course, is usually Stephen A. vs. Bayles ... More >>

If you're looking for a reason to believe as the Giants prepare to face the Patriots on Sunday -- that is, besides Madonna's preference for Eli Manning over Tom Brady -- don't look back to the 17-14 Super Bowl victory over New England four years ago.
The Giants started the year not knowing ... More >>
Desperate times call for desperate measures. The San Francisco '49ers don't have any flashy wideouts or MVP candidate passers to throw against the New York Giants this Sunday. Instead, in key situations they rely on what some would call trick plays but which are just bread and butter to San F ... More >>
If you're looking for a key to this Sunday's Giants-Falcons Wild Card match, let me suggest the man who will be the best receiver on the field -- with all apologies to Victor Cruz, a terrific player who might just be the Giants' MVP this year. But Atlanta's Julio Jones, named the NFL's rookie of the ... More >>
"Stupidity." That's how former NFL head of officiating Mike Pereira, now an analyst for Fox, cut through the crap surrounding the Victor Cruz play in yesterday's Cardinals-Giants game. The Giants sealed a 31-27 victory over the Cards when Cruz took a pass from Eli Manning for a 19-yard gain and then ... More >>
