Last week, New York Giants radio analyst Carl Banks, and Bleacher Report’s Pat Trania had a discussion on Twitter that centered on the injury “status” that plagued cornerback Corey Webster throughout 2013. Webster, who had his 2014 contract voided by the New York Giants on Friday, was active in only four of sixteen games for Big Blue while purportedly battling groin, hip and ankle injuries. In fact, toward the end of the 2013 campaign, Webster’s injury status mysteriously changed from a groin injury to ankle injury before he ever even returned to the playing field late in the season. In an injury report posted prior to the Giants’ December clash against the Seattle Seahawks, I wrote, “the perplexing status of cornerback Corey Webster continues this week, as the Giants formally list him on the injury report with an ankle injury. As the season winds down, the fact that Webster has not been placed on injured reserve seems strange. He also will not play against Seattle.” Banks, who a...

Mailbag: Jake Matthews to the Giants?

As we ease into the offseason, intrigue about what the New York Giants will do to revamp their roster and improve for next season is building.

Best RB selection in Giants draft history

The New York Giants have been home to some great running backs over the years, many of which they added through the NFL Draft. Frank Gifford and Tuffy Leemans are hall of famers. Joe Morris was a key player for the elite teams of the 1980s. Tiki Barber etched his name throughout the record books. But Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw helped guide the Giants to two Super Bowl championships...

Power Rankings: Eli Manning is top-5 QB in the NFL right now according to a new list

With each passing year, no pun intended, the National Football League becomes more and more of a quarterback-driven league. The day and age of teams running the football 40 times per game are a thing of the past, replaced by an era in which quarterbacks throwing 50 passes across four quarters of play is commonplace. Thus, having the right guy under center is more important now than...

Best free agent running back options for the Giants

There are a large number of voids the New York Giants will need to fill this offseason. And of those voids, running back should be one of the biggest areas of focus on the offensive side of the football. With David Wilson’s future uncertain, the Giants could be looking toward free agency to add talent and boost their lackluster backfield for the 2014 season. Cover32 dropped their...

Giants draft pick Damontre Moore needed to have surgery on his shoulder

Michael Strahan will be inducted to both the Black Football HOF and Pro HOF in the same year

I honestly do not know if this has ever happened before or not, but 2014 seems like quite the year for Michael Strahan.

Should the Giants be intrigued by any of the draft’s top RBs?

The New York Giants need help at running back. Brandon Jacobs retired, Andre Brown is a free agent and David Wilson’s return remains in question following a career-threatening neck injury suffered midway through the 2013 season. The team’s rushing attack was not particularly promising either. They averaged just 83.2 yards per game—good enough for only 29th in the NFL. The Giants...

Terrell Thomas not sure NFL locker room ready for gay player

The majority of the reaction to Michael Sam coming out in advance of the 2014 NFL Draft has been positive. Not everyone is convinced Sam's presence will go over smoothly.

Giants must address running back position

For years, the New York Giants have survived through a viable running game led by beloved former stars Ahmad Bradshaw and Brandon Jacobs. Both are gone now, however, and with 2012 first-round pick David Wilson’s career at risk due to a severe neck injury and Andre Brown set to become a free agent, the G-Men are certain of nothing at the running back position.
