The Other Paper:
Former New York Giants lineman Luke Petitgout allegedly beat his wife with her own pocketbook and shoved her out of their car during a one-sided, wedding anniversary-night brawl last week, law enforcement sources said today.
Petitgout last played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2007 and was listed then at 6-foot-6, 308 pounds.
The 37-year-old Petitgout and wife Jennifer Petitgout, 36, were out celebrating in the Meatpacking District of Manhattan when she accused him of cheating — touching off the alleged assault, according to The New York Post.
The retired offensive tackle smacked his wife with her pocketbook and then tossed her out of their car on Little West 12th Street at around 5:30 a.m. on Friday, sources added.
She went to the 1st Precinct station house in the West Village to report the incident, before being taken to New York Downtown Hospital for minor injuries, sources said.
The former Giants lineman, accompanied by his lawyer, turned himself in to police Tuesday morning.
He was picked by the Giants out of Notre Dame in the 1999 draft and last played for Big Blue in 2006.

According to Conor Orr of the Newark Star-Ledger, Giants quarterback Eli Manning has looked very good throwing the football to tight end Brandon Myers.
Brandon Myers seems to be the perfect fit for Eli Manning. The two have been connecting on some long passes, but during the goal line drill it’s easy to see the understanding they’ve developed already.

During an interview on 660 WFAN in New York, Giants general manager Jerry Reese said they will activated both guard Chris Snee and defensive back Terrell Thomas from the physically unable to perform list today, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News.
I don’t think Snee and Thomas will be playing in Saturday’s preseason opener against the Steelers since they’ll only...
The rap duo of Peyton and Eli Manning will not be releasing any additional hits.
After the Manning brothers dropped “Football on your phone” this week players across the league had the tune stuck in their head but there will be no follow ups.
“I think I will stay with my day job and keep playing football for long as possible,” Eli said, via the AP. “A one and done. A one...
Last season the Raiders were the kings of the garbage time world. Every week they would be down by 2-3 scores by half and it was time to throw, throw, and throw some more. Myers was a major benefactor of that garbage time and put up nice stats as he finished with 79 receptions for 806 yards last season for Oakland, the fourth-most catches in the league by a tight end.
'FOOTBALL ON YOUR PHONE'
Eli and Peyton rap for DirecTV's NFL Sunday Ticket.
When the New York Giants won the Super Bowl two seasons ago they finished 9-7 during the regular season. Tom Coughlin's team matched that mark...
Today Peyton and Eli Manning had their latest DirecTV marketing masterpiece released. Titled “F.O.Y.P.”or “Football On Your Phone”, is just fantastic for a number of reasons.
Peyton continues to show that he has more talent that just on the football field. He has made it clear that he has some solid acting skills and does not look goofy or awkward in front of the camera....
Like many Giants fans, when I saw the tweet last year that Terrell Thomas was out for the 2012 season with an ACL injury in the first week of preseason, my heart sank. Even a tear welled up as one is now just thinking about it. The Giants losing their top cornerback was hard enough, but it happening to the same guy for the second year in a row was a heart breaker.
NFL quarterbacks Eli and Peyton Manning star in “Football on Your Phone,” a DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket promo. “It’s like I spilled milk all over your blouse on accident, or on pupose. It’s like the milk is football and your blouse is the phone. Uh huh. Yea,” raps Eli. The post Eli and Peyton Manning star in rap video appeared first on Sports Glory.
Two years into his NFL career Prince Amukamara has yet to live up to his billing as a highly-touted first-round draft pick who was supposed to be one of the best cornerbacks in the league.
But after a week of training camp Amukamara has looked every bit like that player the Giants were hoping they’d see when they selected him 19th overall in 2011.
“I think that every corner...
Being a fan of the New York Giants, I really cannot complain, especially since my wife and her family root for the Buffalo Bills.I have been fortunate enough to witness four Super Bowl titles and another Super Bowl appearance, all since 1986, so I am absolutely not expecting any sympathy for writing this article. However, the Giants have also suffered their share of painful losses...
“You really can’t play unless you can protect the quarterback,” Coughlin said today. Well gone is the best pass blocking RB they had in Ahmad Bradshaw, so the battle will be between the electric David Wilson and the bruising Andre Brown. Here is how the Giants RB faired last season courtesy of ProFootballFocus:
Andre Brown as easily better than David Wilson last season...
Who thinks Peyton and Eli Manning posing as a boy band would make for a great commercial? DirecTV does.
Well, they were wrong.…
Those who know me know that my general philosophy on life is that anything can happen to anyone once. We've all been there - car accident, lost wallet, etc. But when something happens twice, it is usually not a coincidence which is why I cannot stand it when fans of other teams try to paint Eli Manning, Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants as getting lucky in both of their Super...
New York Giants defensive back Terrell Thomas found motivation in different places while rehabbing his knee injury. Now, his goal is to return at full strength for week one against the Dallas Cowboys.
