David Wilson of the New York Giants came out last week saying that he would stop doing backflips after scoring touchdowns, but apparently his memory is quite short. Wilson helped cut the Ravens lead on Sunday from 14-7 on a 14-yard touchdown run, and followed up the touchdown with a backflip. Recently, teammate Justin Tuck had advised Wilson that he should stop doing backflips because there is a possibility of him possibly injuring himself. Wilson also explained last week why he started doing the celebration. “For me, it’s not that hard. It’s just as easy as running. I’ve been doing it almost the same amount of time as I’ve been running. I’ve been doing it since I was 3 years old. Started flipping and kept doing it,” Wilson said. “Now it’s almost second-nature. A lot of fans get nervous when I do it and the coaches and teammates, but they fail to realize how easy it is for me.” Wilson took the advice of Justin Tuck, or so we thought, and last week Wilson was quoted saying the f...

Are the Giants are trying to miss the playoffs?
Here are my Power Rankings and a quick note about each team.
1) San Francisco - Don't panic, Seattle doesn't lose at home.
2) Texans - They are solid on both sides of the ball.
3) Patriots - Suspect defense keep them from the top spot.
4) Denver - On the rise, are they a Super Bowl sleeper?
5) Falcons - They need...
Osi Umenyiora's contract with the Giants expires after this season, and he said he blames himself if he does not finish his career in New York.
New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora told USA Today Sports that he regrets the way he handled his contract situation by holding out and causing some friction with the Giants over the past few years.
“Yes, a lot of regrets. I completely went about it the wrong way,” said Umenyiora. “Honestly, if I would’ve handled it differently, it wouldn’t even be a question about...
Another week, another blowout loss for the suddenly sinking G-Men, who've went from first to finished in the span of two games.
The postseason is now a pipe-dream for New York, and a furious Jason Pierre-Paul believes his team doesn't belong in the tournament.
“Do we deserve it by the way we played? Do we?” Pierre-Paul said, via the Daily News. “I don’t think so...
Former New York Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce told ESPN Radio in New York that he believes Giants defensive end Justin Tuck isn’t the player that he once was.
“I played with Justin Tuck and have a tremendous respect for him. But he has not been the same player emotionally, mentally or his play in the last three years. It’s just the facts,” Pierce said, per ESPNNewYork...
The New York Giants won't go down without a fight despite throwing away control of their playoff destiny with lopsided losses the past two weeks.
Coach Tom Coughlin was perplexed Monday when asked about the embarrassing losses to Atlanta and Baltimore that have left the defending Super Bowl champions needing a ton of help to get back to the postseason.
New York (8-7) has to...
What a difference a year has made for the New York Giants. Much like this time last year, the Giants entered the final week of the season looking to secure a postseason berth, which they did with a win over the Cowboys at home. This year, the Giants have a similar chance to get into the postseason, albeit as a wild card, if they win their season finale against the Eagles and...
With the Giants on the brink of seeing their playoff hopes completely vanish -– New York is still mathematically alive but will need a lot of help to get in -- defensive end Osi Umenyiora said he's reflected a bit over his career with the NFL team that drafted him, and has come to accept that there is a "very real possibility" that this is his final season as a Giant...
The New York Giants could still be a playoff team even after a 33-14 setback to the Baltimore Ravens.
It's a complex (and unlikely) scenario, but one thing was settled at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The only resemblance this Giants team has to last season's championship squad or the one in 2007 that also won a Super Bowl is the "NY" on the side of their helmets...
The New York Football Giants look like they once again forgot that nothing is handed to you, especially in the NFL! This time it looks to be too late, needing a win against Philly, a Cowboy loss to Wash, Green Bay to beat Minnesota, and the Bears to fall to a Lions team that cannot get out of it’s own way, just to make the playoffs. It was just last season where they were...
Eli Manning might want to change his nickname from "Easy" to "Woozy" after the consecutive beatdowns the New York Giants quarterback has gone through over the past two weeks.
Last Sunday's 34-0 blowout by the Atlanta Falcons was compounded by yesterday's ugly 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens which left the Giants signal caller looking for more than...

Both of these teams had commanding division leads and...
The Giants played as badly as they did in Atlanta a week ago, to the point where I wondered why they bothered to make the trip. A forfeit would have been more dignified and honest.
It's hard to fathom how Eli Manning became one of the worst quarterbacks in the league over the last 11 weeks and an absolute killer in fantasy (h/t Scott Pianowski). And the defense is even...
