Though Chris Snee has been dealing with a host of injuries himself, the Giants guard has found other ways to contribute to a Giants season which has gone about as wrong as one could imagine. Snee restructured his contract yet again, which will open up about $1.25 million for the Giants in cap space, as the team is incredibly strapped to make any moves while staying below the salary cap. Per Doug Rush of Giants101.com: On Monday, Snee restructured his contract for the second time this month, giving the team more cap room and flexibility on their payroll to make moves in free agency if they needed to before their Week 5 showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles. Snee originally came into the season making $6.7 million as a base salary, but the Giants took $2.5 million of that and turned it into a signing bonus, thus lowering his contract to $4.2 million and creating $2.25 million in salary cap space.

Tom Coughlin: Giants offense is a “debacle”

During Sunday’s post-game press conference,  Giants head coach Tom Coughlin referred to their second offense as a “debacle.” Coughlin even said that when their offense struggles the way it has, “play-calling is like throwing darts at a board.” The Giants offense converted one out of 14 third down conversion attempts.  Most of those attempts were third and long. So after...

Giants counting on brotherly love to close gap in NFC East

If the New York Giants have any chance of salvaging this season, it sounds like the team believes it will have to pin their slim hopes on the broad shoulders of a Manning or two.

Antrel Rolle: Giants can go 12-0

Coughlin laughs off Cruz's fourth-down criticism

Being 0-4 for the second time in his coaching career hasn't cost Tom Coughlin his sense of humor.

The ensuing punt was...

Giants Sign Offensive Lineman Reynolds

With injuries to David Baas and Chris Snee, the Giants needed to get some support for their offensive line.

Reynolds comes to Giants via the Philadelphia Eagles. It's always a great thing when you can...

Will the Giants Make the Playoffs?

Antrel Rolle thinks the Giants can still make the playoffs despite their 0-4 start. He may be a little crazy considering only one 0-4 team has ever made the playoffs, but he may also have a point. The Giants are only two games behind the Cowboys and have one left to play against them. That means in the eleven other games they must make up at least one game on the Cowboys....

Antrel Rolle: Not Everyone in the Locker Room Believes in Big Blue
