Carl Banks says he never said the Giants lacked chemistry

Former Giants great Carl Banks ripped his former team on 660 WFAN today and some local beat writers thought he was saying they lacked chemistry. Banks went on Twitter and made it clear that he never questioned their chemistry. @ConorTOrr there is nowhere you will see me "quoted" discussing giants locker room chemistry. Here is the link. http://t.co/wOcoL9vNB8 — Carl Banks...

Carl Banks: Giants hate themselves

The sky if falling in East Rutherford, NJ, and as we talked about earlier, it isn’t the guys wearing green and white that have the issues. The New York Giants are getting hammered by the media, and former players are…Read more →

Hakeem Nicks: “I can’t throw it to myself”

Hakeem Nicks was clearly disappointed that he was only targeted once during the Giants blowout loss to the Panthers on Sunday since he had plenty of family and friends come out to watch him since he’s from North Carolina. “It’s part of the game,” he said per the Newark Star-Ledger. “You’ve got to control what you can control. I can’t throw it to myself.” The biggest...

Can Tom Coughlin save the New York Giants season

(Photo credit: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images North America) The New York Giants are 0-3 and while no one seems to be in a panic, they all have to be wondering if head coach Tom Coughlin can save the Giants from an 0-4 start and a possible losing season.Tom Coughlin is one of the best head coaches in the NFL today. He has had an amazing career going all the way back to his days in Jacksonville...

New York Jets Know Your Opponent – Week 4 (Tennessee)

The New York Jets bounced back nicely after a tough division loss against New England, outplaying the Buffalo Bills for the majority of Sunday’s matchup. Don’t let the score fool you, the Jets handled the Bills and won the battle in the trenches on both sides of the ball. If Vlad Ducasse and Kyle Wilson not committed 9 penalties amongst themselves, the final score might have...

Giants sign fullback John Conner

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter,  the New York Giants have signed fullback John Conner. Former Jets FB John Conner reached agreement this morning with the New York Giants. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 25, 2013 This almost certainly means that Henry Hynoski is headed to season ending injured reserve after fracturing his shoulder.   Need NFL Tickets?

Peyton Manning Inspires Quarterback Greatness

Peyton Manning (Photo credit: Jeffrey Beall) There was a time where I could not stand hearing the name Peyton Manning. He didn’t seem to be this great quarterback, especially when he won only one Super Bowl. The thing is Peyton Manning has one Super Bowl Ring. He shares that one ring stigma with quarterbacks such as Aaron Rogers, Joe Flacco and Drew Brews. His brother Eli managed...

Chris Snee may have to sit

The New York Giants offensive line s in shambles and it doesn’t look to be improving anytime soon. After Sunday’s game we heard that Chris Snee was being bothered by his hip that required off season surgery. The team has said there is no new injury just that the area is inflamed and very sore. The hope is that a little bit of rest will help him out, if not he may be forced...

Why the 0-3 Giants might actually give the Chiefs a fight

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Eli Manning can't stop doing his best Matt Cassel impersonation. David Wilson can't find a hole, and then when he does, he can't hang onto the football. The offensive line just allowed seven sacks in a 38-0 shellacking at the hands of the Carolina Panthers, and ... Hey! They've turned it over 13 times in three weeks, a pace that hasn't been...

It Was All Yellow...

East Rutherford, N.J. - At halftime I tweeted that New York was playing a clean game...things certainly took a dirty turn in the second half. You'd have to look all the way back to 1987 to find a game where the Jets had as many penalty yards as they had tonight. In total they had 168 penalty yards on 20 penalties. Holy moley. But somehow they pulled off the 27-20 win.Early on...

Lawrence Taylor: Boomer Esiason is a ‘d—head’

Boomer Esiason has been critical of former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor on several occasions. The two were in the NFL together from 1984 to 1993, and Boomer has never been shy about bashing LT for his off-field troubles. When Taylor found out that Esiason was interviewed for an upcoming Showtime documentary on him […]

My recap: Bills lose to the Jets, 27-20

This always happens with the Jets. I swear. Maybe it is my hatred towards their fan base and just having to live in enemy territory that makes me want to really beat down Gang Green. Just every time I feel confident heading into a Bills/Jets game, they just spank the **** out of us. I never pick the Bills to win games unless they are against a Florida team or Cleveland. So, when...

NFC News & Notes: After Week 3

Up is down, down is up and the New York Giants are nowhere. I was going to start this weekly column with an apology. All my loyal readers – both of you – who have been following my thoughts on the NFC know that the one certainty in my mind thus far is that the Philadelphia Eagles would score, and so would their opponents. Well that was proved to be a pocketful of BS Thursday...
