Even though the 2011 season was as extended as it could have been for the New York Football Giants, the offseason remains long no matter what. That gridiron pest bites; everyone scratches; the itch spreads. Craving Big Blue football isn’t absurd. It’s what drives most of us through mundane and stressful work weeks. What are (again) on the ludicrous side are the overreactions during the par-for-the-course offseason business actions of General Manager Jerry Reese.  Some of the freaking out is borderline humorous, while most is completely unwarranted. Anyone remember last year when Reese was ostracized for having August confidence in everything he did and in what parts he had left to dress in blue? Crazy how that all turned out, since it is how teams finish.  There aren’t clear-cut defined rules to the offseason. There are 31 other teams to compete with here as well.

New York Giants Rookies Rueben Randle, Jayron Hosley Coming Along Nicely at Mini-Camp

Giants Rookie Rueben Randle is expected to contribute right away.

In fact, the team debated taking him in the first round before they decided to go with running back David Wilson. So, needless to say, General Manager Jerry...

New York Giants: Is Eli Manning Vastly Underrated By His Peers

Eli Manning was ranked as the No. 31 player in the NFL by his peers. Manning was fifth among quarterbacks (only behind Brady, Rodgers, Brees and Roethlisberger), which isn't far from the truth (should be ahead of Roethlisberger). He passed for nearly 5,000 yards and had the fourth-highest yards-per-attempt average in football during an impressive, yet somewhat inconsistent regular...

Giants using technology to monitor player work outs

The New York Giants have decided to use technology to their advantage, by using GPS devices and hydration/nutrition monitoring systems in order to track how much energy each player on their roster is exerting and how long it takes them to recover.

Bill Belichick May Be Greatest Giants Coach After Helping New York Win Two Super Bowls

The New York Giants have certainly had plenty of personalities on their coaching staffs, and success hasn't trailed too far behind.

One of those men was Bill Belichick. Now the New England Patriots coach, Belichick...
