New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin expressed his displeasure with the viral video of Jason Pierre-Paul throwing Prince Amukamara into a cold tub.
“I’m going to look into it. I’m going to talk to the parties involved,” Coughlin said, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. “As I’m understanding it, there were some parts of it that were inappropriate. In no way is anything that occurs within this family or group, should that be a part of any kind of social media. So I’m going to address that thoroughly. I’ve spent a little time on that this preseason. So I’ll look into it further.”
At the most Coughlin will likely fine Weatherford for taking the video and posting it online and fine Pierre-Paul for throwing Prince in the cold tub.

Fullback Henry Hynoski is not going to carry the ball early or often, but as he did against the New York Jets on Saturday night, he may hit opposing teams with the occasional surprise attack.
Hynoski's two-yard plunge for a first down on 3rd-and-1 wasn't anticipated. It never so much as crossed the minds of Gang Green, nor did it cross minds of those watching...
While they understand the public's concern over what might be perceived as an apparent hazing incident involving Prince Amukamara, several New York Giants insist that throwing the second-year cornerback into a tub of ice water was a football tradition and not bullying.

The great thing about the NFL is that there are so many positions that every year, there is almost always at least one player who has a breakout year on every team, no matter how good or bad the team is. This is one part in a 32 part segment detailing one potential breakout player for the 2012 NFL season on each NFL team. For the New York Giants, that player is defensive tackle Linval...

Looks like Bradshaw should be fine going forward.

Victor Cruz was a godsend to fantasy football owners in 2012. Talk about sleepers; the guy was the ultimate sleeper, catching zero passes in 2011, then going off for 86 receptions, 1,536 yards and nine touchdowns a year later. He went from not even being on the fantasy radar, to finishing as the no.3 wide receiver in point per reception leagues.
On a personal note, I won a total...
