Found October 22, 2013 on The Giant Exiles:
In news which must be frustrating for both the Giants and David Baas, the Giants center will have an MRI for a knee injury he suffered on Monday night. This injury comes off the heels of David missing the four previous games with a neck injury. Baas was injured on the first series of the game. When speaking with reporters, David didn't sound that optimistic, per bigblueview.com: "We think we have an idea what it is," Baas said. "Hopefully it's not what we think, but we'll see. Obviously it's frustrating, because you feel like you can't catch a break. But it is what it is." There is no indication from the Giants camp of what the injury could be but it seems like David and the team believe it to be serious.

Hakeem Nicks underwent X-rays on his finger

According to the New York Daily News,  Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks underwent X-rays on his finger after Monday night’s win over the Vikings.

The Giants certainly need Nicks as they get ready to travel to Philly this...

If the Giants lose tonight to the Vikings should they fire Tom Coughlin?

I never like calling for anyone’s job, but let’s be honest the Giants have been horrible this year.  For a team that is loaded with Pro-Bowlers, there is no way you can tell me that this team is playing to it’s potential right now. The Giants have been horrendous this year and if they cannot […]

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

Welcome Back, Peyton Hillis!

On Monday night’s football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the New York Giants, the NFL world saw the rebirth of a player who only a few years ago was considered a game-changer.

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...
