After an embarrassing loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, the New York Giants will need a ton of help next week in order to make the playoffs. The G-Men have to beat the Philadelphia Eagles at home and have the Dallas Cowboys lose or tie, the Minnesota Vikings lose and the Chicago Bears lose. Stranger things have happened, but the chances are looking slim. As for that 33-14 loss in Baltimore, Eli Manning was baffled that his team has put itself in the position it is currently in. “It’s shocking,” Manning said according to the NY Post. “It’s one thing to lose and it’s one thing to be in there and something happens at the end of the game and [another to] not give yourself a chance. To get down early and getting no momentum, get no spark that can get us going and consistently not making plays that are there and not executing to our ability, it can be confusing.” Since starting out the season 6-2, the Giants have lost five out of their last seven games. They have been outscored 67-1...

Giants out of NFC East race, but still can make playoffs with help

Are you asking yourself what happened to Eli Manning and the New York Giants over the last two weeks? Another embarrassing loss for the Giants have now taken them out of the running for the NFC East as the winner of the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins will determine the winner next Sunday. While the Giants may be out of the NFC East race they still have a chance at making...

Eli is overwhelmed and understated after Ravens loss

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...

Wilson scores rushing TD, Ravens lead by touchdown

Well that two touchdown lead was short-lived. Eli Manning hit Rueben Randle for 43 yards to help set up a David Wilson 14-yard touchdown run. The Ravens lead 14-7 as the first quarter comes to a close.

Meet the 2012 Championship Round Lumps of Coal

The finals have come and gone in most leagues. Hopefully many of you are celebrating championships. Inevitably, most aren’t. After looking at what happened in Week 16, we’ve put together the Fantasy Football Lumps of Coal Team. This team could very well have been a legitimate starting team in the championships…and completely fell on its face. Without further delay, let’s...

#TheLaMorteReport NYG Short Memories @JLaMorte21

      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...

Week 16 Observations

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...
