Archie Manning: Don’t blame Eli Manning for Giants’ struggles

When Eli Manning was leading the New York Giants to improbable Super Bowl championships, the popular debate centered around whether or not he is considered an elite NFL quarterback.

Injury to Insult

The Giants will be without RB Brandon Jacobs for the rest of the 2013 season. Earlier this evening the 2 time Super Bowl champ was placed on the injured reserve list.

B-Jakes...

Jason Pierre-Paul gets second opinion on shoulder; no surgery, just rest

Although neither the Giants nor defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul have revealed the exact nature of his right shoulder injury, Pierre-Paul said today that he has gotten a second opinion and the injury won’t require surgery.

Eli Manning is Willing to Restructure His Contract to Create More Cap Space

As the eyes of Big Blue fans begin to turn towards the offseason and next year, one big issue to watch will be the team's cap space situation.

Giants need to start playing run defense again
