The New York Giants had the best defense line in football for a couple of seasons while they were winning two Super Bowls.
The Giants as a defensive line have slid back to the back over the past three seasons, but players on the d-line think the resurgence has begun.
Shaun Rogers is healthy again for the first time in a few years, and told the Star Ledger that the Giants can have the best defensive line in football if everything comes together.
“I believe they’ve already been documented as one of the best in the business,” Rogers said. “We’re just trying to add complementary players to what’s going on. But if guys live up to their potential, we could be the best in the NFL.”
Rogers is 34, past his prime.

Tiki Barber said Tom Coughlin once threw a bunch of newspapers in his face and he responded by cursing at him repeatedly. See more details of their relationship.
According to Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has looked very good throwing the football to tight end Brandon Myers.
Brandon Myers seems to be the perfect fit for Eli Manning. The two have been connecting on some long passes, but during the goal line drill it’s easy to see the understanding they’ve developed already.

The New York Giants have always been known for their defense, and a few seasons back they had one of the best in the league. With their defensive line helping to lead them on two Super Bowl runs.

“I think I will stay with my day job and keep playing football for long as possible,” Eli said, via the AP. “A one and done. A one...
Last season the Raiders were the kings of the garbage time world. Every week they would be down by 2-3 scores by half and it was time to throw, throw, and throw some more. Myers was a major benefactor of that garbage time and put up nice stats as he finished with 79 receptions for 806 yards last season for Oakland, the fourth-most catches in the league by a tight end.
Like many Giants fans, when I saw the tweet last year that Terrell Thomas was out for the 2012 season with an ACL injury in the first week of preseason, my heart sank. Even a tear welled up as one is now just thinking about it. The Giants losing their top cornerback was hard enough, but it happening to the same guy for the second year in a row was a heart breaker.
Jason Pierre-Paul understands the expectations laid out for him.
The back surgery which took place on June 4 carried a 12-week recovery timetable. Theoretically he should be ready for the start of the season.
His general manager Jerry Reese said that the team was hopeful Pierre-Paul could go Week 1.
“JP’s on schedule. He’s looking good he’s running around a little bit...
“You really can’t play unless you can protect the quarterback,” Coughlin said today. Well gone is the best pass blocking RB they had in Ahmad Bradshaw, so the battle will be between the electric David Wilson and the bruising Andre Brown. Here is how the Giants RB faired last season courtesy of ProFootballFocus:
Andre Brown as easily better than David Wilson last season...
Those who know me know that my general philosophy on life is that anything can happen to anyone once. We've all been there - car accident, lost wallet, etc. But when something happens twice, it is usually not a coincidence which is why I cannot stand it when fans of other teams try to paint Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants as getting lucky in both of their Super...
A day after DIRECTV debuted Eli and Peyton Manning's rap video commercial, the New York Giants quarterback and his wife Abby had their new baby daughter's first photos published.
Eli — more than anyone —knows being the younger sibling to a star isn't easy, so when Abby took little Lucy Thomas Manning for a stroll around their Hoboken, N.J. neighborhood with her older...
