Sean Locklear will give the Falcons depth at the tackle position. (Jim O’Connor) The Atlanta Falcons have signed tackle Sean Locklear #Falcons signed OT Sean Locklear.— D. Orlando Ledbetter (@AJCFalcons) November 13, 2013 With Sam Baker being placed on injured reserve on Tuesday, the Falcons were in need of depth. They didn’t waste any time adding Locklear to the roster. Locklear spent last season with the New York Giants. He appeared in 12 games before tearing his ACL. No views yet

Atlanta Falcons: injury report update

ATLANTA, GA- There are nine players listed on the official injury report for the Atlanta Falcons as of Thursday. Harry Douglas was the only new addition to this list along with his fellow receivers in Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez. Douglas did not practice due to a knee injury. Gonzalez missed his second straight day of practice nursing a toe injury, while White was limited in practice...

He may not get 30 carries again but Andre Brown's workload should stay high (RB touches week 10)

Andre Brown had 30(!) carries in his season debut for the Giants, as coach Tom Coughlin wisely eased him back into the lineup. With Peyton Hillis pushed into a clear reserve role and David Wilson being shut down, we’re going to see this type of work from Brown for here on out. It probably won’t be 31 touches a week mind you, but he roughly tripled Hillis’ snap count and had...

New York Giants still alive in division race?

When a team starts 0-6 on the season, you rarely expect them to be in the playoff hunt by week 11, but here the New York Giants (3-6) are just a game and a half behind the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-5) for first place in the NFC East division. The NFC East has not been one of the stronger divisions in the league so far this year, and that has allowed the...

Hilarious GIF of Eli Manning’s unintentional grounding

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, despite being one of the most successful of the decade, has been the butt of many jokes for, among other things, his “dopey” face after making a mistake. In the GIF below, Eli slips while trying to step up in the pocket and throws the ball directly at the ground. It is worth noting that Eli and the G-Men have reeled off three straight...

Falcons lose OT Sam Baker to season-ending injury

The Atlanta Falcons have lost another player for the season, placing offensive tackle Sam Baker on injured reserve. The move announced Tuesday was not a surprise. Baker, considered the team's best offensive lineman, was plagued by a knee injury and had already missed five games. The Falcons (2-7) have been ravaged by injuries. Baker was the fourth starter to go down for the...

Eli Manning Says Daughter Doesn’t Understand Fame, Confused by Cardboard Cutout of Him in Dunkin’ Donuts

What a cute generational story about fame in the Manning family: Just as Archie Manning once had to tell his youngest son, Eli, that not all dads give autographs, Eli and his wife now have to tell their daughter, Ava, that not every father gets a cardboard cutout of himself put up in Dunkin’ Donuts. Eli Manning was at a Dunkin’ Donuts at the Meadowlands on Tuesday to promote...

Jason Pierre-Paul unsure he’ll play this week

New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is unsure if his shoulder will be healthy for him to play in this week’s game against the Packers. “It’s still pretty sore. My shoulder just hurts. That’s it. It’s getting better and better. I’m not practicing (Thursday). I don’t know about the game. I’m just going day-by day. Once it stops hurting me, I’ll play....

Archie on Eli: "Living under a black cloud"

Eli Manning. Wow. What a disappointment he must be to his father, right? I mean, what has he ever really done to further the Manning legacy anyway? Two Super Bowl rings? Pssh. Of course, I kid. However, there is no doubt that has been Manning's worst year as a professional QB. He leads the league in INTs with 16, ranks 30th in completion...

Mathias Kiwanuka says the defense has to step up to help the struggling Eli Manning and company

Eli Manning’s teammate Mathias Kiwanuka told the radio station today that since Eli has bailed their butts out of several problems to get a win, the defense now has to do the same for the struggling offense. “You can’t just look at him and say, ‘Oh, he’s the reason (for the team’s struggles this season),’” […]

Giants Mathias Kiwanuka: Defense Has To Carry Eli The Way He’s Carried Us

The New York Giants  are rallying around Eli Manning, and it might spur a playoff run. Manning this season has completed just 55.6 percent of his passes  for 11 touchdowns, 16 interceptions, and a 68.5 quarterback rating. Manning has led the Giants to two Super Bowl championships, and has never been one to throw his teammates under the bus. Those same teammates are now coming to...

Giants are a far cry from playoff contenders

Riding high off a three-game winning streak, the New York Giants are thought to be right back in the playoff mix, but Tom Coughlin and company aren’t exactly sitting pretty at a record of 3-6 and still two games back of the divisional lead.

Giants Injury Report

The Giants have just released their injury report for the week. Here's the big name players that might miss action against the Packers this Sunday: RB Brandon Jacobs Hamstring/Knee DNP TE Bear Pascoe Ankle DNP DE Jason Pierre-Paul Shoulder DNP CB Terrell Thomas ...

Pierce Misses 2nd Straight Practice

For the 2nd day in a row, Jason Pierre-Paul sat out of practice. Our formidable defensive end injured his shoulder in last week's game against the Raiders. It's now looking increasingly likely that he might not be available this Sunday against the Packers. If JPP can't take the field this weekend, it would be particularly devastating to a defense that is just...
