Saints Writer Breaks Down the Giants

I always find it refreshing to read what other writers around the country see when they look at the Giants. Mostly, they get it wrong.  Many times they don’t take into account the intangibles that are not detectable by the naked eye. Jimmy Smith of the Times-Picayune in New Orleans seems to have done his homework on the Saints’ next opponent – the New York Giants. His scouting...

NFC East Playoff Picture at Week 12

Jim MancariBGB Assistant EditorAll of a sudden, Week 12 of the NFL season is upon us, so what better time to speculate about the NFC East playoff picture? The Giants have a tough road ahead, and based on the back-to-back losses, it might be an uphill climb. Do the Giants have what it takes to get back to the postseason?

Brandon Jacobs Rips Fans...Again

We're going to miss Brandon Jacobs when he's gone. Not because of what he gives the Giants on the field, because we've already been missing his old thundering running style for a few years now. We're going to miss him because there's no player more willing to step up and make himself a target for all the negativity that the rest of the team is generating in the...

Pressure's Mounting on the Giants

The Giants have seemed to do their best work this season when their backs are against the wall, so maybe it is a good thing that they'll be taking the field on Monday night in second place.
