Found December 24, 2012 on Fox Sports:
The New York Giants could still be a playoff team even after a 33-14 setback to the Baltimore Ravens. It's a complex (and unlikely) scenario, but one thing was settled at M&T Bank Stadium on Sunday. The only resemblance this Giants team has to last season's championship squad or the one in 2007 that also won a Super Bowl is the "NY" on the side of their helmets. "We are flatlining right now," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said. The Ravens -- despite entering on a three-game skid -- wouldn't serve as the Giants' crash cart. Quarterback Joe Flacco outdueled his Giants counterpart, Eli Manning, throughout as Baltimore compiled 533 yards of total offense and the once-feared Ravens defense looked a little less ancient. Baltimore, which had already secured a playoff berth, finally seized the AFC North title with the win. For the Giants, the spiral continued. This was the Giants' third loss over their last four games and, with it, any chance of ...

Pierre-Paul on Giants’ loss: ‘We pissed on our legs’

Another week, another blowout loss for the suddenly sinking G-Men, who've went from first to finished in the span of two games. The postseason is now a pipe-dream for New York, and a furious Jason Pierre-Paul believes his team doesn't belong in the tournament. “Do we deserve it by the way we played? Do we?” Pierre-Paul said, via the Daily News. “I don’t think so...

Giants need answers and help to make the playoffs

The New York Giants won't go down without a fight despite throwing away control of their playoff destiny with lopsided losses the past two weeks.

Giants know playoff chances now 'remote'

What a difference a year has made for the New York Giants. Much like this time last year, the Giants entered the final week of the season looking to secure a postseason berth, which they did with a win over the Cowboys at home. This year, the Giants have a similar chance to get into the postseason, albeit as a wild card, if they win their season finale against the Eagles and...

Osi Umenyiora regrets how he handled his contract situation with the Giants

New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora told USA Today Sports that he regrets the way he handled his contract situation by holding out and causing some friction with the Giants over the past few years. “Yes, a lot of regrets. I completely went about it the wrong way,” said Umenyiora. “Honestly, if I would’ve handled it differently, it wouldn’t even be a question about...

#TheLaMorteReport NYG Short Memories @JLaMorte21

      The New York Football Giants look like they once again forgot that nothing is handed to you, especially in the NFL! This time it looks to be too late, needing a win against Philly, a Cowboy loss to Wash, Green Bay to beat Minnesota, and the Bears to fall to a Lions team that cannot get out of it’s own way, just to make the playoffs. It was just last season where they were...

The finals have come and gone in most leagues. Hopefully many of you are celebrating championships. Inevitably, most aren’t. After looking at what happened in Week 16, we’ve put together the Fantasy Football Lumps of Coal Team. This team could very well have been a legitimate starting team in the championships…and completely fell on its face. Without further delay, let’s...

Eli is overwhelmed and understated after Ravens loss

Eli Manning might want to change his nickname from "Easy" to "Woozy" after the consecutive beatdowns the New York Giants quarterback has gone through over the past two weeks. Last Sunday's 34-0 blowout by the Atlanta Falcons was compounded by yesterday's ugly 33-14 loss to the Baltimore Ravens which left the Giants signal caller looking for more than...

Week 16 Observations

The Giants played as badly as they did in Atlanta a week ago, to the point where I wondered why they bothered to make the trip. A forfeit would have been more dignified and honest. It's hard to fathom how Eli Manning became one of the worst quarterbacks in the league over the last 11 weeks and an absolute killer in fantasy (h/t Scott Pianowski). And the defense is even...
