Fan threatens Brandon Jacob’s life over fantasy football (Photos)

David Wilson Walks Around Public Wearing a Rabbit's Head. That is All

In a bit of social media that shows that David Wilson really doesn't know what to do with his free time while he waits for further news on his neck and when he'll be football ready, the Giants young running back has taken to posting videos of himself doing seemingly mundane things while wearing a giant rabbit head. No, there's no stated reason...

Fantasy Player Threatens Brandon Jacobs on Twitter, Then Acts Like a Little ***** When He is Called Out

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...

For One Reason That Manhattan Strip Club has Lifted its Ban on Giants Games

Rick's Cabaret NYC, the famous gentlemen's club in midtown Manhattan (and official gentleman's club of Bob's Blitz), that banned NY Giants football games on the club's numerous Hi-Def TVs and big screens because "It had become too painful to watch the Giants lose week after week," (according to Cabaret Girl Monica)? Yeah, they've lifted the ban....

Our long national nightmare is over, a New York strip club will now show Giants games again after their win

  For some reason, I got put on this New York strip club list. I’ve never been to any club in New York and I doubt I will make it down there. They sent me emails on how they will no longer would show New York Giants games after them going 0 for 4. It mad the girl’s too sad. Poor strippers. Those single mothers, college students, and women that enjoy illegal substance users must...

Giants RB On The Cover Of Sports Hillis-trated

The narrative of tonight’s game would best be read in a Sam Elliott voice.  No, I’m not talking about those crappy Dodge commercials.  No again, I’m not talking about his turn as the Chupadogra in Marmaduke.  How’d you even know he was that without Wikipedia anyways?  Nah, I’m rocking The Big Lebowski on this one and going with ‘The Stranger’.  Sometimes there’s...

New York Giants Defeat Lifeless Minnesota Vikings, 23-7

It wasn’t pretty or fun to watch, but the New York Giants finally won a game by defeating the lifeless Minnesota Vikings 23-7. This game could have gone in any direction as I had mentioned in my pre-game breakdown that the Giants needed to do win in three areas if they wanted to win. 1) Win the battle of the turnovers 2) Contain Adrian Peterson and 3) Win the time of possession...

Top Five Trade Destinations For Hakeem Nicks

Photo credit: guardianlv.com Watching the New York Giants this season has been a train wreck to say the least.
