The big bad light-speed Chip Kelly offense isn’t so complicated after all. That’s what Giants corner Terrell Thomas thinks. The Eagles’ fast break attack yeah the same one that torched Big Blue for 439 total yards in Philly’s 36-21 win on Oct. 6 has taken the NFL by storm but Thomas said Wednesday that he’s not worried about it or big-play receiver DeSean Jackson either. “Philly’s offense is simple at times” said Thomas of the NFL’s second-ranked unit. “They kind of dare you to make mistakes and when you do they capitalize. They just kind of run the same plays over and over again little changeup here and there because they have great athletes so they just get the ball to them.” Thomas added that Jackson can be contained adding in his opinion that the Giants’ game plan in Week 5 “worked really well” despite the fact that Jackson racked up 132 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven receptions. “He’s a guy that doesn’t want to get touched” Thomas said. “In all fairne

Is There Hope for the New York Giants?

After an ugly 23-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night, the New York Giants keep hope alive that they can go on a run and jump back into the playoff race in the NFC. After Antrel Rolle promised 12-straight wins after starting 0-4, this proved to be a little overzealous as they dropped their next two games, falling to 0-6. There are many reasons behind the...

Jason Pierre-Paul admits he’s not 100 percent

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is clearly not the same dominant player that he was two years ago and he admitted it to the media on Thursday. “It’s really going to take the whole offseason next year to get back to my old, old ways — the old JPP,” said Pierre-Paul via Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. The good news for Pierre-Paul is that he’ll...

Is Peyton Hillis Just A Band Aid For The Giants?

The newest edition to the New York Giants running back Peyton Hillis has emerged to lead the Giants to their first win. (1-6)  But is he just a band aid for the team?

Jason Pierre-Paul regrets not having surgery sooner, learns to deal with 'Super Man' expectations

Jason Pierre-Paul has come to terms with almost everything involved in the rehabilitation process. He admitted Thursday that he won’t be 100 percent healthy until next season – he says his surgically repaired back is about 75 percent now – and he knows his coaches weren’t expecting “Super Man” coming into the year. But if Pierre-Paul had any regrets one might be not...

Victor Cruz: Giants Have a "Renewed Energy"

The Giants season may be off to a bad start, but after experiencing the first win of the 2013 season, Victor Cruz believes that the Giants season is renewed. The team can't do anything about its current record of 1-6 but they can look to be better from here on out. That was the lesson that Cruz took away from Big Blue's victory over the Vikings, per ...

New York Giants: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#27)

Last week: 28 (+1) Record: 1-6 The Giants won this week, but they were significantly less impressive this week than they were in a loss to the Bears, a game which they would have won if they were even competitive in the turnover battle. Against the Vikings, they didn’t move the ball well and relied on the turnover battle heavily. Eli Manning missed throws and throws that weren’t...

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

People need to stop being such freaking idiots and leave these players alone when it comes to their fantasy football teams.  NO ONE cares about your stupid, sh*tty fantasy team.  Especially players who’s livelihood and future health depend on it.  Here is one such example of a douche gone wild using his mighty keyboard to threaten not only Jacobs, but his family: Here is what...

Jon Beason never wants to leave the Giants

Ever” said the three-time Pro Bowler who arrived this month in a trade from Carolina. His six-year contract inked in 2011 voids after this season but the free-agent-to-be doesn’t want...

Jason Pierre-Paul May Not be 100 Percent Until Next Season

Jason Pierre-Paul has not been the JPP of old this year. One doesn't even need to look at his numbers this year to confirm it either, though they are beyond pedestrian. In seven games played, JPP has recorded 14 tackles and exactly one sack. It is clear that he is still struggling with the back surgery he had four months ago. Pierre-Paul admitted as much this week, per...

Top Five Trade Destinations For Hakeem Nicks

Photo credit: Watching the New York Giants this season has been a train wreck to say the least. Despite having proven talent on both sides of the ball and a Super Bowl winning coaching staff, the Giants have been the NFLs doormat in 2013, posting a putrid 1-5 record after many predicted they would contend for the NFC East division title. There are always issues in...

In it to win it?---or should Eagles play for next year?

It's a tough dilemma for Chip Kelly and owner Jeff Lurie, if you ask me... You are hosting the 1-6 Giants in your own backyard (albeit no home-field advantage based upon recent history), your two most proven QB's are gimpy at best, and you are headed into a Bye week after the game... Do you play your relatively healthy QB #3 and hope for the best?---and I say "...
