New York Giants
Chris Canty summed up Sunday night’s game against the Eagles best.
“We got punched in the mouth and didn’t do anything about it,” Canty said.
Between showing no life, dropping key passes, playing with no urgency and just playing a flat out ugly game, there is only so much that can be said about this effort without feeling ill. Everyone shares the blame in this critical loss.
The Giants, indeed, got hit in the mouth and did not fight back.
The Giants made Vince Young look like a world beater. The Giants were yet again beat by a backup QB.
Now all the talk will be centered on if the Giants will make their usual late season swoon.
So, in this week’s version of the good, the bad and the ugly, don’t expect a lot of “good” but whole lot of “ugly.”
So without further ado, let’s examine the good, the bad and the ugly.
The play of Victor Cruz
While he was guilty of dropping his share of balls, Cruz did keep the Giants in the game by hauling in six receptions for 128 yards while cat...

The Giants fell to 6-4 as they dropped their second straight game, this time to the woeful Philadelphia Eagles. The loss can be attributed primarily to Eli Manning's performance. He was barely over 50% passing with 18 completions on 35 attempts. Ultimately, the Giants had a chance to tie the game with under 2:00 left in the game, but...

Why is Eli Manning giving us his “Peyton stole my 1989 Griffey Jr. Upper Deck rookie card,” face this morning? Well, his Giants had a chance last night to seize control of the NFC East, yet couldn’t beat Vince Young. Bad loss, brah. And on the right we have Erin Andrews after a Baylor Bukkake® post-Bears miraculous victory over Oklahoma. The tale of two faces. One giving...
Eli Manning’s fourth-quarter magic disappeared for the second straight time last night.Manning, sacked from behind by Jason Babin, fumbled away a chance to force overtime from the Eagles’ 21 with the final moments about to tick away in the Giants’ demoralizing 17-10 loss.Manning (18-35, 264 yards, 1...
Can I eliminate a ton of writing by just indicting the state of New York? Seriously, I can spew off a few thousand words to dissect the abject failures that were the efforts of the Giants, Jets and Bills in Week 11. I could, but I'll let the scribes in New York painstakingly take you through the play-by-plays and fallout from these losses and the large-scale ramifications.
Well, that was one worth forgetting for the Giants, wasn’t it?Just like last week against the 49ers, they had us all on the edge of our seats, anticipating another miraculous fourth quarter comeback from Eli Manning and company, and once again, … [visit site to read more]Rapid Reaction: Giants-Eagles - GMEN HQ - GMEN HQ - A NY Giants Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.
The Giants may be on the verge of another late-season collapse. The leadership team of Eli Manning and Justin Tuck are fully aware of the team’s recent history and are safeguarding themselves from the fallout if the Giants – who began the season with 6-2 record, fail to make the postseason for the third consecutive year…
Q: How much concern is there with six games left?
from James Varney of the Times-Picayune..
“The New York football Giants strutted to New Orleans in October 2009 undefeated and ready to be crowned the best team in football. Instead, they were embarrassed by a New Orleans Saints team that, events culminating in Super Bowl XLIV would prove, actually was the best team in football.
Giants quarterback and New Orleans native Eli Manning...
Now that the Colts are in a one-team race for the services of Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, it's worth wondering if Indianapolis is even an appealing destination for the certain No. 1 draft pick. Earlier this season, NFL Network reported there's some fear in the league that Luck could demand a trade to avoid playing for a particular team at the top of the draft board...
Not what we expected, is it? The Giants’ offense has been awful and the defense is showing those lapses again. If Vince Young wasn’t so rusty (or pathetic) the Eagles would be seriously taking to the Giants here.
Eli Manning is 7/18 for 77 yards with an INT and two sacks. The running game seems to be getting worse, with only 19 yards on 10 carries.
On defense, the Giants are...
Coach Tom Coughlin called the rushing attack “pathetic,” and he was being kind. Line was brutal, offering no protection for Eli Manning (18 of 35, 264 yards), who was off the mark and under duress. Victor Cruz (6-128, 1 TD) was the lone bright spot. Brandon Jacobs (12-21...
Eagles Bum Rush Sluggish Giants
by Jon Wagner
It was all right there for the New York Giants – a chance to avenge a painful home loss from last year, an opportunity to dismiss questions about another second-half swoon, and the prospect of effectively ending the playoff hopes of a hated division rival.
But, once again, New York’s nemesis came into the Meadowlands and ruined the...
