Every team in the NFL deals with injuries every season. It’s a given.
The Giants this preseason have been hit somewhat hard by the injury bug. With the season less than a week away, I’ll admit that I’m a little concerned that the team won’t be at full strength on Wednesday against the Cowboys.
Many players are working their way back to full health, so even if they aren’t fully ready to go on Wednesday, most will since not only is it the much-anticipated first game of the season, but also the team will have then a week and half to recover.
Ahmad Bradshaw is slightly banged up, but he’ll definitely play. Hakeem Nicks looked a little tentative going across the middle in the final preseason game, but it was his first action so hopefully he’s ready to go Wednesday.
But the real worry is on the defensive side of the ball. In fact, the Giants can field a top-notch defensive line of ...

In perhaps the most surprising roster move of the New York Giants offseason, the team has decided to cut veteran running back D.J. Ware less than a week before week one of the regular season. Ware has been a reliable third-down back for Big Blue throughout the past few seasons, and even seemed to be running with a new ferociousness as the preseason has progressed.
D.J. Ware has...
Hakeem Nicks is battling serious foot ailments, but he says he'll play through it during the team's season-opening game.
It was the long-awaited rematch of Super Bowl XLVI between the New York Giants and New England Patriots. The hottest ticket in town! Fans lined up deep into the city as they waited to get into MetLife Stadium! Well, not really, but it was yet another game between the Giants and Patriots. And like so before, Big Blue came out victorious after a late fourth quarter rally.
According to Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News, the Giants have placed both defensive tackle Shaun Rogers (blood clot) and cornerback Terrell Thomas (knee) on injured reserve.
I feel for both players. Rogers was playing very well in camp and in the preseason and Thomas was just on IR last season. Maybe the Giants will bring back Thomas after week eight, since the new...
The NFL season will begin in less than a week when NFC East rivals New York and Dallas square off in primetime in front of a national TV audience. The return of football will be enough to satisfy the appetite of pigskin fans everywhere, but a little trash talk is helping to stoke the fire. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones fired the first salvo when he said this: Fair enough. Of course,...
New York Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka was asked what he thought about the comments of Cowboys owner Jerry Jones who told his fans that they were going to “beat the Giants a****.”
“He should. I mean, the Giants have been whupping his *** for a long time,” Kiwanuka said on WFAN’s Boomer and Carton Radio show via the Newark Star-Ledger.
“It’s gotta be tough...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Giants are looking to trade for an offensive lineman.
Sure sounds like the Giants are in market to trade for an OL…

The Giants could use a left tackle, but those don’t come cheap, it will be interesting to see if anything happens.
The New York Football Giants have recently sent out invitations embossed with “Super Bowl XLVI Champions” as the header to (as they call it) New York Giants Account Holders.
These invites are for admittance to MetLife Stadium on the evening of Thursday, August 30, 2012 for what sounds like a fun fan gathering-type atmosphere just before the regular season kicks off. Once the...
Lawrence Tynes kicked a 32-yard field goal with 1:03 to play and the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots 6-3 on Wednesday night in the preseason finale for the teams that met in the Super Bowl in early February.
This one was hardly as interesting as the title game, but the Giants (2-2) once again scored late to win. Adewale Ojomo set up the game-winning score with...
For as much as we enjoy the concept of parity in sports, there’s a tendency to talk more about dynasties than unexpected champions. Whether it’s hailing the greats of the past, despising those of the present or laughing at out-of-context quotes of potential ones, dynasties write the histories of our games, for better or worse.
