New York Giants
Millikin Big Blue
With Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers in the rearview and Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin of the Philadelphia Eagles on deck, we’re turning the page around here…moving on from last week’s feel-good victory and looking at what should be a tough game on the road for the Giants.
Despite how bad Philly looked last week getting spanked by the Arizona Cardinals, they always show up to play Big Blue so hopefully the Giants don’t get caught in a trap. Tomorrow morning we’ll have our Insider post with the guys from Eagles101.com giving us a scouting report, but for now let’s hear what the Giants players themselves have to say about the Eagles.
First up: Eli Manning, who sees a defense that tries to do the same old thing but in a new way.
“Probably not bringing as much pressure as they have in the past with previous defensive coordinators. But they’re still very talented, and I think they have great confidence in their front four that they can get a sack without blitzing. T...

New York Giants receiver Victor Cruz is returning to where his on-field salsa dancing began - Philadelphia.
Believe it or not, it was roughly a year ago that Cruz started his rise to national prominence by catching two touchdown passes in the City of Brotherly Love in helping the Giants post a 29-16 win over the Eagles.
Until that game, Cruz was known mostly for catching three...
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz was on Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN Radio and indicated that players have taken advantage of the replacement officials this season.
Cruz is just confirming what we’ve all been witnessing this season. There are defensive players and offensive players taking advantage of poor officiating by committing numerous blatant penalties...
New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks was listed as doubtful on Friday's injury report after developing swelling in his knee. He had been expected to return to the lineup against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday after missing the Giants' Week 3 game at the Carolina Panthers, but the knee issue is believed to be a result of him compensating for his sore foot.
The frustration continues for Hakeem Nicks owners. The star receiver missed last week after aggravating a foot injury but he appeared to be on track to play in week 4. There appears to be a complication that has caused the Giants to downgrade Nicks' status to doubtful that is not related to the foot to painful swelling in a knee.
According to Art Stapleton of the Bergen Record, New York Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks has been listed as doubtful for Sunday night’s match up with the Eagles.
It will be interesting to see whether the Giants decide to start Domenik Hixon or Ramses Barden in Nick’s place.
As the New York Giants continue to deal with a bunch of injuries, the good news is that running back Ahmad Bradshaw (neck), wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (foot), and cornerback Michael Coe (hamstring) were back at practice today.
Bradshaw did mentioned that his neck feels great, but it could flare up again at any time.
There’s no doubt in my mind that both Nicks and Coe will play...
The defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants head into a Week 4 matchup against division rival Philadelphia on a roll. After dropping their opening game to Cowboys, the Giants have won two straight.The Eagles, on the other hand, pulled out two close games in the first two weeks, before losing on the road in Arizona last Sunday.Here are THREE BOLD PREDICTIONS for this Week 4...
When the officials were trying to sort out what had happened on the final play of the Packers-Seahawks game on Monday night, Golden Tate had no choice but to insist he had joint possession of the ball and had caught the game-winning touchdown. Tate’s job is to do anything he can to help his team win, so obviously you can’t fault him even if M.D. Jennings clearly intercepted the...
You can't look anywhere today without seeing replays of Monday Night Football's controversial touchdown call — or non-call, if you prefer — that gave the Seattle Seahawks a last second victory over the Green Bay Packers.
Seahawks rookie quarterback Russell Wilson's Hail Mary pass as time expired was credited as a touchdown to his receiver Golden Tate — even after...
New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett is attributing his success this season to quarterback Eli Manning.
According to the New York Post, Bennett was overheard telling a waiter at a restaurant that Cowboys quarterback Tony “Romo isn’t in the same league as Eli Manning. Not even close.”
I do believe Romo is a very good quarterback but he isn’t on the same level as Manning...
Step with me into the Way-Back Machine:There were many notable debuts when the Philadelphia Eagles hosted the New York Giants in Week 1 of the 2004 season: Terrell Owens played his first game in Eagles green (catching 3 TD passes) and Kurt Warner made his first appearance in blue, under new Giants head coach Tom Coughlin.Oh, and a much-ballyhooed rookie named Eli Manning stepped...
