The students at PS 142 in the lower east side of NYC received warm words from NYG fullback Henry Hynoski and lots of toys, on behalf of the Educational Alliance, not for profit Second Chance Toys, and Kidville.
After recently being hard hit from hurricane Sandy, some of these kids lost everything, and their safe haven, their school, had to be shut down for a short period of time due to loss of power as well as other complications from the storm.
“Having these hardships and having a little bit of adversity made me become a stronger person. It made me work harder and harder.” Hynoski mentioned these words of encouragement to the kids, who have gone and are most likely still going through hardships. He himself pulled his hamstring during the physically grueling NFL Combine in 2011, seeing his dreams of playing in the big league wash away before his eyes. He rehabbed his way back, went undrafted but then was picked up by the NY Giants.
So Henry says keep your head up and keep working st...

I don’t know if Hakeem Nicks had a nickname before, but he certainly has one now. After the interview he gave Sports Illustrated’s Jimmy Traina, I’m calling him Harmony Hakeem.
The New York Giants receiver conducted a Q&A with Traina over email where he essentially refused to answer any negative questions. The whole thing started off on a strange note when Nicks identified...
Ahmad Bradshaw took part in practice on a limited basis Friday, and New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin said he was encouraged about having the running back for Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Bradshaw, the team's leading rusher, sat out last week's 34-0 loss at Atlanta after spraining his left knee a week earlier in a win over New Orleans.

The New York Giants are coming off one of their worst losses in recent memory — a humiliating 34-0 beatdown by the Atlanta Falcons — and have fallen into a three-way tie looking up at the Cowboys and Redskins for first place in the NFC East.
Nevertheless, the team still insists it is at its best when their backs against the wall. At least that's what they publicly say...
Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw (sprained knee) missed Wednesday's practice but has already said he expects to play in Week 16.Fantasy Spin:Bradshaw missed the 34-0 debacle in Atlanta. His replacement, rookie David Wilson, rushed 12 times for 55 yards. If bradshaw returns expect him to split time with Wilson fairly evenly.

I went back and forth on Chicago/NY Giants for the final playoff spot. The Giants control their own destiny, but the Bears have very winnable games against Arizona and the team who lost to Arizona (Detroit) to finish their season, while the Giants have to go to Baltimore....
Alex Raskin of CBS Sports.com is a respected analyst who is unbiased toward New York sports teams. Still, I didn't expect Raskin to get on the Ravens bus for this one. This game to me is a pick'em. Both teams match up evenly across the board. Even their injury counts are eerily similar. I would even argue that the Giants have more motivation and need to win than the Ravens...
New York Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw and Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith were both listed as questionable after taking part in limited practice Friday in advance of Sunday's game. Bradshaw has knee and foot injuries that kept him out of last week's loss at the Atlanta Falcons. Smith suffered a concussion during the Ravens' loss to the Denver Broncos...
