Found November 04, 2012 on Giants Kickoff:
TweetThe New York Giants lose week 9 against the Pittsburgh Steelers (24-20) in large part due to Offensive Coordinator Kevin Killdrive Gilbride's conservative play calling. Gilbride's title needs to be changed to Field Goal Coordinator! The Giants defense has as many touchdowns as the offense the last 2 weeks! Under Gilbride this team has always been horrendous in the red zone. Every game New York plays seems to come down to the wire. History of Bad Play Calling By Kevin Gilbride For any of you who have followed my blog, you know I'm not one to jump on a bandwagon to fire coaches and I'm not suggesting that now, but I am complaining. Last season when everyone was asking for Tom Coughlin to be fired I wrote an article defending him. Kevin Gilbride drives me crazy though, he has a history of making horrible play calls during games. Last week he was extra conservative with around 4 minutes to go against the Cowboys, he pretty much played for the Field Goal. It almost c...

Jacquian Williams, Chase Blackburn out on Sunday for New York Giants

The New York Giants will be relatively healthy this Sunday as they prepare to take the field against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Although the Steelers have yet to release their final injury report, the Giants look to be in good shape this weekend, save for a few injuries to the linebacker core. Without further delay, here is Big Blue's final injury report of the week. OUT ...

Coughlin wants more from Eli 'in a hurry'

Uh oh, here comes the New York Giants second half swoon right on schedule.  The tell-tale signs have been there for weeks but, come Game 9 every season, it becomes official. On Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Giants hoped to create a three hour diversion to Hurricane Sandy for Giants fans dealing with the aftermath of the storm.  Looking back, Big Blue's fans mostly...

Justin Tuck: “we’ll end this November curse”

Just when the New York Giants appear to be the class of the NFC something like Sunday happens. The Pittsburgh Steelers came into Met Life Stadium and handed the Giants a 24-20 loss. Defensive end Justin Tuck is hoping the Giants get back to their winning ways. “Let’s not (repeat) history,” Tuck said, via Newsday. “Unless it’s going to end up how it did last year. For us...

Muy Frio: Eli Manning

I’m a head scratcher Juan… Eli Manning is a great NFL QB.  Ice water in his veins that allows him to bring his team back late in games.  This has translated to fantasy stats in recent years and his preseason ranking in the top 10 was an indication of where owners thought he should be getting drafted.  In the first 5 weeks of the season, Eli scored 15 or more fantasy points...

Ryan Clark Flagged for Unnecessary Roughness on Questionable Victor Cruz Hit (Animation)

There's no replacement refs to blame for the poor officiating in the Steelers-Giants game. Ryan Clark was flagged for unnecessary roughness on a big hit that seemed clean according to NFL rules. Eli Manning threw an ill-advised pass directly at a Steelers' defender, which was followed up by Clark lighting up Giants receiver Victor Cruz. Clark didn't...

The 5 Best NFL Draft Classes in the Past 25 Years

If you enjoy football—which we assume most of you do—yesterday marked a pretty cool day as the Steelers traveled to New York to take on the Giants. While the two team’s might not be your favorite, the quarterback matchup between Big Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning was something that should be celebrated. Why? Not because they put up a ton of yards or touchdowns—their stats...

Steelers 24, Giants 20

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In a game billed as the battle of two first-round quarterbacks from the Class of 2004, the Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger outlasted the Giants' Eli Manning by copying Manning's fourth-quarter comeback act to steer Pittsburgh to a 24-20 win over New York at MetLife Stadium. The Giants (6-3) saw their four-game winning streak end, and Manning'...

NFC East Review: Pittsburgh Steelers Grind Down New York Giants

Several teams in the NFC East had the opportunity to record signature wins – and one still does heading into the Monday Night game – but at the end of the day on Sunday, all that those teams had to show for their efforts was major disappointment.With the Philadelphia Eagles (3-5) in desperate need of a win against New Orleans tonight, here is what happened with the other three...
