INDIANAPOLIS • There's a strange vibe on the streets of

Giants' top draft pick has weathered an unusual rookie year
The Giants may not have worn their black suits to the Super Bowl today, but they came cloaked in the same brashness and confidence that they wore when they arrived in Arizona four years ago.
New York Giants wide receiver Mario Manningham can’t wait for Super Bowl XLVI against the New England Patriots next Sunday in Indianapolis. Manningham is obviously confident that his Giants can once again knock off the favored Patriots, but he says he is really looking forward to playing against one player, in particular.

The Giants' defense has gone into the last two playoff games with the knowledge that they did not have all of their players available when they faced those teams in the regular season. Against the Packers and the 49ers, they were able to justifiably argue that neither had seen what they were truly capable of doing because of injuries and missing pieces.
Revenge is a two-way street for Deon Grant.
Eli Manning shattered team passing records, and Jason Pierre-Paul became a feared force. Victor Cruz broke out, and Justin Tuck rediscovered his fury late in the season. But when GM Jerry Reese evaluates how his Giants made this stunning run to Super Bowl XLVI, he doesn't always point to those obvious stars.
It worked for New York four years ago, so, Tom Coughlin and his Giants are taking a similar path to the Super Bowl this year. Plus, other news and notes from New York's team hotel.
When Terrell Thomas went down and out in the preseason, there was an overwhelming feeling that in addition to shredding his knee, any possibility for the Giants’ defensive backfield to dominate was ripped apart as well.
After all, as a rising star, Thomas had emerged as the team’s best...
There is one New York Giants veteran injured last week who won't show up on the injury report going into Super Bowl Week. Bettors shouldn't be worried, though. Tom Coughlin isn't trying to hide anything.
INDIANAPOLIS — The Giants arrive today at the site of Super Bowl XLVI with 15 players who played four years ago in Super Bowl XLII, one who was inactive (D.J. Ware) and one who was on injured reserve (Mathias Kiwanuka). They have the same head coach, the same offensive and...
More than 20 years ago, Tom Coughlin worked with Bill Belichick under Bill Parcells with the Giants. Alex Raskin says upon his arrival in Indianapolis, Coughlin recalls Belichick's competitiveness and creativity.
