T-Rock's Take On The Giants:
It's been hours since I last blogged because my day has been jammed with events from 7 a.m. this morning. After I left Amani Toomer, I arrived at the Giants hotel for their final camera time before Sunday.
BEST OF MAXIM
Other than a problem with a team bus, the New York Giants' final walkthrough before the Super Bowl went smoothly Saturday.
The second of four buses carrying the team from the hotel to the University of Indianapolis had to be replaced after engine problems. The NFL had a substitute bus on hand and quickly got the players and coaches back en route, with a delay of roughly five...
New York Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul isn’t too worried about being able to rattle Patriots quarterback Tom Brady this coming Sunday.
“Anybody can be rattled,” said Pierre-Paul. “Tom Brady is a great quarterback, but at the end of the day he’s just a quarterback. It’s not like he’s God.”
Pierre-Paul is right, the past couple of meetings between the Giants...
Forget media day. Spare me the hype and the Brady-Manning comparisons. Let’s talk about Coughlin and Canton later. Amidst all the nonsense making “news” in the weeks leading up to this Sunday’s Super Bowl, this tweet from Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich speaks the loudest.
A year ago Giants safety Antrel Rolle said that it was time for coach Tom Coughlin to realize it’s 2011 and update his coaching methods. But in 2012, Rolle says he has come around to see the wisdom in the way Coughlin does things. “My first season I questioned a lot of things that coach…
INDIANAPOLIS • Shortly before
the New York Giants left for the Super Bowl, a pep rally was held
for wide receiver Victor Cruz at his old school, Paterson (N.J.)
Public School No. 21.

Well, that didn’t take long. Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that the league fined Osi Umenyiora $20,000 for skipping Wednesday morning’s media session. Umenyiora was back at a team meeting this afternoon, so it doesn’t appear to be a major concern. It’s believed the league set a record time between infraction and penalty. New…
Super Bowl XLVI: To say that Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara is living a dream by playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday implies his rookie season has been idyllic. It has not.
He is supposed to be at the microphone, at the front of the White River Ballroom at 9:30 and Tom Coughlin is there at exactly 9:30, of course he is, he is Tom Coughlin and if he won’t allow you to be late for his team meetings, he sure isn’t going to be late when he stands next to the Vince Lombardi Trophy on Friday of Super Bowl Week. Only it is different this time for Coughlin...
The New York Giants have three Super Bowl titles (XXI in 1986,XXV in 1990, and XLII in 2007). They also have four titles in the pre-Super Bowl era: 1927, 1934, 1938, 1956)
The New England Patriots have also won three Super Bowl championships (XXXVI in 2001, XXXVIII in 2003, and XXXIX in 2004).
Which team will win the fourth title?
Expect a good Super Bowl on Sunday.
