Found October 26, 2013 on Pro Football Spot:
Well, the first time this year, the Giants actually are going to play with momentum on their side, which is pretty hard to believe, considering how horribly New York has looked at times. Nevertheless, the Boys in Blue are the ones entering this game on a winning streak, while the Eagles scored just three points against the Dallas Cowboys last week. Momentum favors the Empire State.Now, brace yourself for not one, not two, but three bold predictions for the New York Giants Week 8.1. The Giants rush for less than 60 yardsI have almost no confidence in the respective running abilities of Peyton Hillis and Michael Cox. Against the Vikings, Hillis looked slow. Maybe it’s just because he hadn’t been on the team for more than a week, or because he hadn’t been on any team for a while, but when a running back looks slow, that spells trouble (see: 36 yards on 18 carries). He has value as a receiver, but not rushing.Cox, a seventh-round draft choice, hasn’t shown anything yet that would believ...

Rodney Harrison rips the Giants, Justin Tuck fires back

After a rough start to this season,  former NFL safety and NBC NFL analyst Rodney Harrison took some shots at the Giants last week. “I don’t know if they’re sitting back shining their Super Bowl rings too much at home, but they’re certainly not a good football team now,” former New England Patriots safety and current NBC studio commentator Rodney Harrison told the New...

The Giants can still win a wild card and maybe the division

Right now, there is not team in a better situation than the New York Giants. Two weeks ago they were the worst team in the NFL and were winless. Right now they are on a two game winning streak and their division continues to plummet. The Washington Redskins might have just lost Rg3 to a […]

Is There Hope for the New York Giants?

After an ugly 23-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night, the New York Giants keep hope alive that they can go on a run and jump back into the playoff race in the NFC. After Antrel Rolle promised 12-straight wins after starting 0-4, this proved to be a little overzealous as they dropped their next two games, falling to 0-6. There are many reasons behind the...

Is Peyton Hillis Just A Band Aid For The Giants?

The newest edition to the New York Giants running back Peyton Hillis has emerged to lead the Giants to their first win. (1-6)  But is he just a band aid for the team? Hillis was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this season but was later picked up by the Giants and has shown a good first start playing with the team.  When the Giants finally broke away from their six game...

Peyton Hillis reviving NFL career with Giants

It was hard enough for Peyton Hillis to believe he went from being idle one week to the Giants’ starting running back and the main bell cow on football’s primetime stage the next. And he’s liable to get even more work on Sunday in Philadelphia, with Brandon Jacobs listed as doubtful for the NFC East matchup with the Eagles. “It was shocking and surreal at the same time,...

Fantasy Football Injury News: Giants Brandon Jacobs inactive

New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs may have made the trip to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles, but he will not see the playing field. Jacobs has been listed as inactive for this afternoon’s game. Jacobs missed last Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings and has been dealing with a hamstring injury. Most fantasy owners that had added Jacobs were already aware of the...

Jason Pierre-Paul regrets not having surgery sooner, learns to deal with 'Super Man' expectations

Jason Pierre-Paul has come to terms with almost everything involved in the rehabilitation process. He admitted Thursday that he won’t be 100 percent healthy until next season – he says his surgically repaired back is about 75 percent now – and he knows his coaches weren’t expecting “Super Man” coming into the year. But if Pierre-Paul had any regrets one might be not...

Victor Cruz Returns To Action vs. Philly

New York wideout Victor Cruz has returned to Sunday's game against Philadelphia.Fantasy Spin:He left earlier with a neck injury but it wasn't serious. The Giants hold a 15-0 advantage in the fourth quarter and will probably be looking to run out the clock. Cruz has five grabs for 64 yards.

Tom Coughlin needs a win real bad in Philly...

Here's an angle on Sunday's game between the 3-4 Eagles and the 1-6 Giants that is beyond the normal implications of a divisional match--- Giants head coach Tom Coughlin could be fired if his team loses. It seems impossible to me that you would scapegoat your multiple Super Bowl winning coaching for one bad season and some terrible personnel decisions from higher up....

Jon Beason never wants to leave the Giants

Not only does linebacker Jon Beason want to play next year with the Giants he wants to stay with Big Blue for the rest of his playing career and beyond. “I don’t plan on going anywhere ever. Ever” said the three-time Pro Bowler who arrived this month in a trade from Carolina. His six-year contract inked in 2011 voids after this season but the free-agent-to-be doesn’t want...

Jason Pierre-Paul May Not be 100 Percent Until Next Season

Jason Pierre-Paul has not been the JPP of old this year. One doesn't even need to look at his numbers this year to confirm it either, though they are beyond pedestrian. In seven games played, JPP has recorded 14 tackles and exactly one sack. It is clear that he is still struggling with the back surgery he had four months ago. Pierre-Paul admitted as much this week, per...

The New York Giants are back in the playoff race with a win Sunday

The New York Giants are facing a huge uphill battle. Like the Pittsburgh Steelers before them, the New York Giants are trying to climb their way back into the playoff race after a very slow start to the season. The Steelers are getting back into the mix after just a 0-4 start. The Giants, however, lost their first six games of the season, making their task that much more difficult...

New York Giants Continue Winning Ways, 15-7 Over Eagles

For the 2nd consecutive week, the New York Giants won a football game by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles 15-7. Also, for the 2nd consecutive week, the Giants played against a team without their #1 Quarterback for the entire game. Last week, the Giants manhandled the Vikings mostly because Josh Freeman was forced into the starting role too soon. This week, an unhealthy Michael Vick...
