T-Rock's Take On The Giants:
If the Patriots want to stop the Giantsâ pass rush, they can do a lot worse than asking the Saints how they have been so successful at it. Saints starting tackle Jermon Bushrod was here in Indianapolis picking up the FedEx Air Player of the Year Award for teammate Drew Brees, and I caught up with him to ask him how they managed to keep their quarterback clean in their game against the Giants back in late November. Brees threw for 363 yards and four TDs in that game and wasn't sacked (in fact when the Saints beat the Giants in 2009 he wasn't sacked either and threw for 369 yards and 4 TDs).

Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty has plenty of confidence heading into the Super Bowl on Sunday. His message to fans was for them to get ready for a parade.
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.
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.
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.
INDIANAPOLIS — Hakeem Nicks is the most accomplished of Giants receivers. Victor Cruz has been the breakout star this season. But it is Mario Manningham who is on the cusp of history.
If Manningham scores a touchdown in Super Bowl XLVI on Sunday vs. the Patriots, he will become just the...
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.
No one would have guessed while the NFL labor war raged last spring that the three of them would be so happy to see each other again.
''We met at a time when football looked like it might not continue,'' NFL players union chief DeMaurice Smith said, his arm draped over the shoulders of Patriots owner Robert Kraft. ''To be here now and watch a great game unfold...
One lasting lesson Tom Coughlin learned from Bill Parcells was the importance of continuity.
