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 >>
Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins probably thought his most embarrassing moment in sports was losing the 2011 Capital One Bowl to Alabama, 49-7. That was until the NFL made him take a urine test in his grandmother's house. Naturally, this odd arraingment has inspired a veritable golden s ... More >>
The Giants ended last night's game with the Washington Redskins in sole possession of first place in the NFC East but somehow it didn't feel that way. Unless you just want to believe that the Giants are going to pull off another postseason miracle after stumbling through another indifferent regular ... 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 >>

The NFL is basically, at this moment, winding up ... More >>
"Jets make easy work of Redskins" read the banner on the home page of NFL.com. Were they serious? Did anyone actually watch that game? Once again -- stop me if you've heard this already -- the Jets were trailing an inferior team in the fourth quarter -- in this instance, down 16-13 to Washin ... More >>
The Slants bill themselves as "Chinatown Dance Rock," which means they have no problem copping to the fact they sound like "the Asian version of the Killers." The Portland, Oregon-based group, who come to Union Hall next month, made news recently when they attempted to trademark their name, but th ... More >>
While we wait for this Sunday's showdown between the Steelers and the Packers, we're feeling nostalgic for the big games of our past. We've been spoiled lately with some pretty exciting Super Bowls.

With about five minutes to go in the Giants 17-14 victory over the Redskins in Washington yesterday, the bad news was flashed across our TV screens: the Green Bay Packers had defeated the Chicago Bears, shutting the Giants out of the playoffs and ending their season.

In the least likely to have a blog category, you might put rapper Lil Wayne, who is currently serving a year at Riker's Island after pleading guilty to gun charges.

Open your window this beautiful spring day and you can still hear Giants fans chortling over the Philadelphia Eagles' decision to trade quarterback Donovan McNabb.

Somehow it was fitting that Tom Coughlin's Giants picked their last game in their old stadium to give us their most memorable performance.

With five games to go in the season, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has already locked the league's MVP award.
