The Giant Exiles:
Brandon Jacobs managed to land in the news, though not for reasons which he wanted.
The Giants running back was accosted on twitter by a crazy fantasy football fan, who issued a death threat to Brandon by tweet for not playing in Monday's contest against the Vikings, per Bleacher Report:
Jacobs simply highlighted the tweet and watched as the guy begged Brandon for forgiveness before being forced to shut down the twitter account. Brandon elaborated on the issue to ESPN:
"Us as football players, we don't owe y'all nothing. It's up to you to manage your team the way you want to manage it. The only owners and general managers I owe anything to is Jerry Reese, the Mara and the Tisch family. Everybody else, I don't concern myself with."
Or as he put it to another fantasy football fan who tweeted at Jacobs angrily that he wasn't playing against the Vikings:
F**k you and your fantasy team.. This is my real life..
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
After an ugly 23-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night, the New York Giants keep hope alive that they can go on a run and jump back into the playoff race in the NFC. After Antrel Rolle promised 12-straight wins after starting 0-4, this proved to be a little overzealous as they dropped their next two games, falling to 0-6.
There are many reasons behind the...
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is clearly not the same dominant player that he was two years ago and he admitted it to the media on Thursday.
“It’s really going to take the whole offseason next year to get back to my old, old ways — the old JPP,” said Pierre-Paul via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
The good news for Pierre-Paul is that he’ll...
The newest edition to the New York Giants running back Peyton Hillis has emerged to lead the Giants to their first win. (1-6) But is he just a band aid for the team?
Hillis was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this season but was later picked up by the Giants and has shown a good first start playing with the team. When the Giants finally broke away from their six game...
Jason Pierre-Paul has come to terms with almost everything involved in the rehabilitation process.
He admitted Thursday that he won’t be 100 percent healthy until next season – he says his surgically repaired back is about 75 percent now – and he knows his coaches weren’t expecting “Super Man” coming into the year.
But if Pierre-Paul had any regrets one might be not...
The Giants season may be off to a bad start, but after experiencing the first win of the 2013 season, Victor Cruz believes that the Giants season is renewed.
The team can't do anything about its current record of 1-6 but they can look to be better from here on out. That was the lesson that Cruz took away from Big Blue's victory over the Vikings, per scout.com:
People need to stop being such freaking idiots and leave these players alone when it comes to their fantasy football teams. NO ONE cares about your stupid, sh*tty fantasy team. Especially players who’s livelihood and future health depend on it. Here is one such example of a douche gone wild using his mighty keyboard to threaten not only Jacobs, but his family:
Here is what...
There are things you want to hear you coach say when you are going into free agency and there are things you don’t. You can easily count this is something you don’t want to hear because it could mess up your negotiations. Per the New York Daily News, Coughlin acknowledged Nicks’ inconsistent play:
“You’ve got to get to the point where the reliability factor is there as...
Last week: 28 (+1)
The Giants won this week, but they were significantly less impressive this week than they were in a loss to the Bears, a game which they would have won if they were even competitive in the turnover battle. Against the Vikings, they didn’t move the ball well and relied on the turnover battle heavily. Eli Manning missed throws and throws that weren’t...
Here's an angle on Sunday's game between the 3-4 Eagles and the 1-6 Giants that is beyond the normal implications of a divisional match--- Giants head coach Tom Coughlin could be fired if his team loses.
It seems impossible to me that you would scapegoat your multiple Super Bowl winning coaching for one bad season and some terrible personnel decisions from higher up....
Not only does linebacker Jon Beason want to play next year with the Giants he wants to stay with Big Blue for the rest of his playing career and beyond.
“I don’t plan on going anywhere ever. Ever” said the three-time Pro Bowler who arrived this month in a trade from Carolina. His six-year contract inked in 2011 voids after this season but the free-agent-to-be doesn’t want...
Jason Pierre-Paul has not been the JPP of old this year.
One doesn't even need to look at his numbers this year to confirm it either, though they are beyond pedestrian. In seven games played, JPP has recorded 14 tackles and exactly one sack. It is clear that he is still struggling with the back surgery he had four months ago. Pierre-Paul admitted as much this week, per...
Victor Cruz and company finally breathed a deep sigh of relief after earning their first win on Monday Night. This now begs the question is the electricity back in the Giants locker room?
Jason Pierre-Paul is still trying to regain his Pro Bowl form that helped lift the New York Giants to a Super Bowl victory in 2011.

Watching the New York Giants this season has been a train wreck to say the least. Despite having proven talent on both sides of the ball and a Super Bowl winning coaching staff, the Giants have been the NFLs doormat in 2013, posting a putrid 1-5 record after many predicted they would contend for the NFC East division title.
There are always issues in...
