Chase Blackburn has been the Giants’ leading tackler the past four games, which isn’t too bad for a guy who was teaching middle school math seven weeks ago.
Blackburn was signed by the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of Akron in 2005. He played six seasons with the team, recording 210 tackles, four safeties, and two interceptions. But after the lockout, the Giants declined...
The Giants were back at TIMEX yesterday, one day after they dismantled the Atlanta Falcons in the WildCard round of the NFC Playoffs. The team suffered two injuries: concussions to CB Aaron Ross and RB DJ Ware.
“Ross and Danny Ware are going through the process in regards to concussions,” Tom Coughlin said. They actually felt pretty good at the conclusion of the game when we...
Falcons: G-men can conquer Green BayN.Y. POST: CHARLES WENZELBERGTOM TO SHINE: The Falcons, 24-2 losers to the Giants in yesterday’s wild-card playoff game, say Tom Coughlin and his team can beat the Packers.By Bart Hubbuch - NY Post 1/9/12
The New York Giants took on an Atlanta Falcons squad this afternoon and sent them home in convincing fashion with a 24 to 2 victory. While the score indicates a blow out, it was far from that. In fact, this game was in the balance till two huge plays in the 3rd quarter tilted the game in a big way to Big Blue.
Before I get to those two plays, allow me to let you enter my random thoughts...
Atlanta Falcons starting safety William Moore suffered a groin injury in the first half against the New York Giants on Sunday and his return was listed as questionable.
The Giants also had a safety injured when Deon Grant sustained a quad injury. His return was also listed as questionable. While not a starter, Grant plays extensively when the Giants use alignments with three safeties...
Also, Aaron Ross left game with concussion
The Giants need as many healthy defensive backs as they can find on Sunday when they play the Green Bay Packers, and it looks like one of them will be Aaron Ross. Ross “should be fine” after suffering a possible concussion against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday and might even be available to ...
They have not forgotten Tom Coughlin’s bright red frozen cheeks that looked as if they could be chipped off in chunks and it being so cold that the sweat in David Diehl’s hair formed icicles, and they certainly have not forgotten the victory over the Packers.
You ask Eli Manning if he ever guaranteed a victory in his life, and he looks at you as if he’s being asked to run a quarterback draw against the Ravens, up 20 points with a minute left. “No, I don’t think so,” Manning said Monday.
- Giants are home favorites, which hasn’t been good luck for them this year. Still, their intensity level should be high and a letdown is not expected.
- Bad start for the Giants’ offense: an incompletion and a false start on Nicks led to a three and out. On the Falcons’ first drive, Michael Turner was stuffed on two runs, and the pass rush forced an incomplete pass for a three and out.
Pitch near-shutout in 24-2 win
