Eli Manning may be missing Giants spring activities, but he’s not missing the action at Yankee Stadium.  Eli was in Derek Jeter’s suite to witness Tampa Bay’s 5-1 win over the Yankees. Eli wasn’t alone, either.  Bro Peyton was in the Big Apple to appear on the Letterman show, so he decided to swing by with his younger brother and touch base with the Yankees’ captain. Do you think Peyton was chatting up Jeter over how the retirement so he can accumulate some advance info for himself? Rumors are swirling around that 2014 may be Peyton’s last season behind center. Retirement is down the road for Eli, but the ankle surgery he is recovering from is probably giving him some thoughts about his own athletic mortality. With all the knuckleheads in sports, it doesn’t get much better than the Manning brothers and Jeter.  Hopefully Eli and Peyton take a cue from Jeter’s mistake.  I think Derek hung around a couple of years too long.

What to do with Will Hill?

Will Hill is a talented safety. In 2013, Hill stepped in for the injured Stevie Brown and did fairly well in relief for a Giants defense which rounded into form over the course of the season. Unfortunately, Hill reportedly violated the league's substance abuse policy for a third time during the offseason. While Hill is appealing, if he's found guilty, he would likely...

Giants need better production from this draft

It wasn't just the offense. When Giants co-owner John Mara issued his now-legendary description of the point-scoring side of the ball as "broken" in January, he went on to say that the team needed to change the way it drafts its players. They have won two Super Bowls with Jerry Reese as general manager, but the Giants have drafted only two Pro Bowl players in the...

Giants reportedly think very highly of Odell Beckham Jr.

The Giants could look to get a wide receiver in the first round given that the position has some question marks surrounding whether anyone currently on the roster can fill the void at outside receiver.
