Found November 28, 2012 on Football Nation:
After a two game skid that had people thinking that maybe the New York Giants were vulnerable, they came out Sunday night and put in a performance to speak to the contrary by beating the Green Bay Packers 38-10. It seems that everytime the Giants are perceived to be on the ropes they rise to the occasion and make a statement that says, "everyone put the shovels down , don't bury us yet, its just a minor setback." That is why this team has won two Super Bowls in four years and are poised to repeat again this year. This is a special team.

Kiwanuka clutch at two positions for Giants

When Mathias Kiwanuka signed a contract extension with the New York Giants earlier this year, he understood his job was to be a wild card in the defense. Kiwanuka is somewhat of a rarity in the NFL. A two-position player, the seven-year veteran is listed on the roster as a linebacker, but he plays as much on the defensive line, his natural position. This past week in the Giants...

Ahmad Bradshaw gives David Wilson some big props

Ahmad Bradshaw said he expects rookie RB David Wilson to have a big role in the wake of Andre Brown’s broken leg. Due to his troublesome feet, Bradshaw seems to know that he is not a true workhorse.
