PLAYERS: Victor Cruz
TEAMS: New York Giants

Giants GM Jerry Reece has spoken to the media more this week than he has in recent memory.

He started by throwing his hat in the ring with the Osi Umenyiora contract dispute. He is now saying that situation is not “personal.”

He moved on to addressing the running back situation after they drafted David Wilson in the first round.

Next up? Victor Cruz.

Draft Grades: New York Giants

With so few holes, I expected the New York Giants to simply target the best available player – a strategy which Jerry Reese has used frequently in the past – but he strayed from his typical approach and it may come back to haunt him down the road. David Wilson was a reach, and there’s really no way to sugar coat that. The fact that Reese would reach for Wilson raises a serious...

Giants Steal Rueben Randle

The New York Giants snatched wide receiver Rueben Randle from the board with the No. 63 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. Fantasy Spin: This will go down as being one of the biggest steals of the Draft, and some experts even believe that Randle is the most physically-gifted receiver in the class. He could develop into a No. 1 fantasy receiver, but not in New York with studs Hakeem Nicks...

Osi Umenyiora comments don’t bother Jerry Reese

In an interview with ESPN Radio in New York via the New York Daily News, Giants general manager made it clear that he doesn’t take Osi Umenyiora’s critisicm of him personnel.  He dismissed Osi’s comments by saying that it’s just  “offseason chatter”. “I don’t carry grudges,” Reese insisted. “That’s the offseason. That’s part of the job. In the offseason...

Eli Manning’s funny SNL promos

Eli Manning has proven that he can take the heat from large men chasing after him with the goal of hugging and rolling on top of him.  But can he handle the heat from the big stage of Saturday Night Live?  We’ll find that out this weekend.  Until then, we’ll have to judge him by the early game tape we have.

New York Giants 2012 Draft Grade: Randle Headlines Great Class

The New York Giants' draft was solid, albeit not without its mistakes. Though if I've learned anything over the years, it's that Giants GM Jerry Reese knows a lot more than I do when it comes to the NFL Draft. In Jerry I trust.   David Wilson (32 overall) - RB, Virginia Tech: When the Bucs stole Boise State RB Doug Martin by trading for the 31st pick (Note: Reese...

Redskins sign free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff

The Washington Redskins have signed free agent linebacker Jonathan Goff, who played three seasons with the New York Giants before missing last year with a knee injury. Goff was a fifth-round selection by the Giants in 2008. He became a full-time starter in 2010, but he tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee shortly before the season opener a year ago and was placed...

If Ole Miss Quarterbacks Could Stop Throwing ALL THE INTERCEPTIONS, That Would Be Great

Eli Manning is set to host Saturday Night Live this weekend, and as long as Doug Buckles isn't in the building, things should go fine for him.  If not, well, it doesn't always go so well when those two are near each other: Anyway, good for Eli.  His Super Bowl victories and MVPs are mostly responsible for him getting asked to do the show, but I think he deserved the...

According to Adam Caplan of, the Oakland Raiders are bringing veteran quarterback Jim Sorgi for a work out on Tuesday. Sorgi last played for the New York Giants in the preseason of 2010 before he suffered a season ending shoulder injury.  He’s been out of the league ever since then.

The Eli Manning SNL promos are quite entertaining

Eli Manning prepares to host 'Saturday Night Live'

Eli Manning says he didn't want to host ''Saturday Night Live'' after his first Super Bowl victory because it came so soon after big brother Peyton's appearance a year earlier.
