With the Fourth of July comes the inevitable fireworks sessions we all will enjoy. However, New York Giants fans have had their share of fireworks they enjoyed last season. With that theme in mind, here is a list of the top five moments that made last season so memorably explosive.
No. 5) Tynes is clutch again: On January 22, 2012, the Giants faced the San Francisco 49ers in an overtime thriller for the chance to go to the Super Bowl. It was a tense NFC Championship showdown. 49ers kick returner Kyle Williams fumbles twice in the game. The second time set up a chance for Lawrence Tynes to kick a game-winning field goal to advance the Giants to the Super Bowl. Tynes didn't miss. The Giants won the game 20-17 as a direct result of that sequence of events.

No. 4) J...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The New York Giants have a long history of bringing in at risk players who have had off the field issues and transforming them into key members of successful, winning teams. Players like Mario Manningham, Plaxico Burress, and Ahmad Bradshaw have all come with off the field baggage, and have all played important roles in one or more Super Bowl victories for Big Blue.
Former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett is now with the Giants, and he seemed to have taken a shot at his old QB Tony Romo.
According to Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News, Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty has indicated that he’ll be good to go for training camp, after recovering from knee surgery during the offseason.
“All signs point to go,” Canty said. “I’m feeling pretty good about training camp.”
“The knee feels pretty good,” he said. “It’s pretty strong...
From the moment Giants 101 was launched in 2004, James Douglas, known to all of us here as "JD in Dallas" and later "JD in LI", was a daily fixture and regular commentor. He was a good-hearted, lovable man who, for quite some time, was buried in enemy territory. His devotion to the New York Giants never wavered as he took on Dallas Cowboys fans daily.
Best 4th of July photo we could find this evening? Has to be from the Steve Tisch 4th of July party. He’s part of the NY Giants ownership group, the side you rarely hear about because the Mara’s are the other half. Anyway, according to Giants punter Steve Weatherford, Tisch got a little crazy this afternoon and tested the size of the weiners he was serving.
According to Weatherford...
Ray Perkins told the New York Post that he thinks “Tom Coughlin’s got another 15, 20 years in him,’’
The 70-year-old Perkins recently took on a new job as a head coach at a junior college, Jones County Junior College, and he himself wants to stay on the job for 20 years.
The audience laughed but he was serious, adding “He does. He works out, he takes care of himself...
After spending four unproductive (yet controversial) years with the Cowboys, Martellus Bennett signed with the Giants in March. And now the tight end appears to already be criticizing his former quarterback, Tony Romo.
In an interview with Newark’s The Star-Ledger, Bennett made comments that could be interpreted as taking a dig at Romo, suggesting the Cowboys quarterback played...
You hear the debates all the time as to who the best quarterback in the NFL is right now, whether a quarterback is "elite" or not, and why a quarterback can or can't be considered a "franchise" signal caller. New York Giants' Eli Manning was one of the most polarizing candidates for the debate going into last season. Last season, after Manning won his...
[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="450"] Martellus Bennett is just the latest to pay his complements to Giants quarterback Eli Manning.[/caption]
For years, and despite two championships for New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, many pundits have argued that Dallas Cowboys signal caller Tony Romo is the cream of the crop in the NFC East. However...
New York Giants tight end Martellus Bennett told Mike Garafolo of the Newark Star-Ledger that he really likes playing with Eli Manning because he doesn’t show favoritism when throwing the football, like most quarterbacks do.
“Just his approach. I mean, he’s just looking for the open guy. It doesn’t matter who it is or what number you are,” said Bennett. ”If you’re...
Now that he's no longer second fiddle to Jason Witten, former Cowboys tight end Martellus Bennett apparently thinks Tony Romo is playing out of tune.
Bennett, now with the New York Giants, had nothing but praise for his new quarterback, Eli Manning, in a recent interview on the Newark Star-Ledger's website, nj.com. But in doing so, he took an indirect shot at Romo and his...
For years, and despite two championships for New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, many pundits have argued that Dallas Cowboys signal caller Tony Romo is the cream of the crop in the NFC East. However, after only a few short months with Big Blue, tight end Martellus Bennett strongly disagrees with that assertion, and anxiously awaits his time on the field with the two-time...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, while appearing on Sirius XM NFL Radio, former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer said that Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is better than Eli Manning.
Either Amani Toomer has gone insane now that he’s retired, or he’s trying to be unbiased now that he’s a part of the media. He could also want to be like ESPN’s Skip Bayless. I...
