New York Giants
Everyone knows that the ‘Thursday Night Football’ game is a nice link between Monday and Sunday games, but produces cringe-worthy television. Chicago and New York are fortunate enough to get their mandatory mid-week game out of the way early.
Both teams head into their night tilt looking at was has gone wrong more than what has gone right. The Bears have lost two straight games to high-powered offenses, while the Giants have yet to post a ‘W.’ Mistakes have plagued the signal callers for both teams, as well. Jay Cutler and Eli Manning have combined for 24 turnovers (18 interceptions, 6 fumbles) and have been sacked 24 times (15 for Manning, 9 for Cutler).
It is easy to point fingers at the guys handling the football more than any other player, but placing blame on the offensive lines for both teams is necessary.
Chicago and New York have also played less than stellar defense. The Giants are ranked 28th in the NFL in total defense, and Chicago 22nd. The Bears have help opposin...
BEST OF MAXIM
Despite their jaw-dropping struggles through the first quarter of the 2013 NFL regular season, the reeling New York Giants (0-5) entered Sunday’s must-win battle against the Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) with a glimmer of hope as they trailed the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys by just two games. That ray of optimism was still in the air when the G-Men rallied to take a 21-19 lead...
How big of a problem is Eli Manning for the Giants right now? It didn't seem like it at first, but Eli is becoming a huge reason why the Giants are 0-5. The Giants can no longer pretend that their quarterback is not costing them games.
Now before everyone gets too angry, I know exactly how good Eli has been in the past and what he has meant to this team. I am talking...
It is easy to understand when athlete’s attempt to stat positive through adversity, because nobody wants to come across as a whiner or at least seem to be giving up. But it is an entirely different thing when they are…Read more →
All is not well with the 0-5 New York Giants, and the NY media is tuning up for what could be a long fall and winter for the organization. The NY Post’s Bart Hubbuch isn’t wasting anytime by going for…Read more →
Life hasn’t been easy for the New York Giants this season.
Matching their worst start in a full season since 1979, the Big Blue fell to 0-5 on Sunday afternoon, with Eli Manning adding to his mounting turnover number in embarrassing fashion. The Giants were in good position to secure their first victory of the season, trailing only by one point late in the game, but three fourth...

After the New York Giants started the season 0-4, some of the exotic dancers from my second home at Rick’s Cabaret in New York City offered their support and even some advice for the embattled Eli Manning and his anemic offense. But after yet another embarrassing loss – a 36-21 drubbing at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles – the wonderful ladies of Rick’s...
All the Twitter backlash of QB Jay Cutler and his inability to hold the ball is irrelevant to the 358 yards passing, 2 touchdowns and passer rating of 128.1, with NO interceptions. There were numerous balls dropped, one of which was an in-the-money catch that WR Earl Bennett let bounce off his chest. The double coverage on WR Brandon Marshall forced Cutler to move the ball around...
I may be alone in this observation and opinion, but I truly believe the Giants at 0-5 are still in contention to win the NFC East. This is the worst division in the NFL and 8 wins will most likely do the trick this season to capture the crown.
Eli Manning is off to his worst season ever, already having thrown 12 interceptions through five games. If we dissect these interceptions...
The New York Giants suffered their fifth consecutive loss on Sunday to the arch-rival Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants Beat's Steven Macri recaps a nightmarish Week 5 for Eli Manning and company.
Here are some detailed Fantasy Revelations off a select listing of Sunday games.
Perhaps next week (depending on baseball), we'll have more time to delve into three books of nuggets ... and mini-rants involving second-tier tailbacks who cannot stay healthy.
1. There's nothing new to proclaim about the Broncos and Cowboys ... even if it might have been the greatest outing...

New York Giants (+8) at Chicago Bears – Thursday NightEli’s coming, and so are the rest of the New York football Giants, to Soldier Field for a Thursday night clash against the Old Man’s Bears. When these two teams met in Chicago in 2010, Jay Cutler played the part of the Pinata at the “Victor Cruz Salsa Extravaganza.” Not this time, at least it better not be this time...
