New York Giants
The New York Giants went from winning six games in a row on their road to a Super Bowl Championship, to opening the new season with a loss at home to the division rival Dallas Cowboys. Such a loss is certain to kill the high the players were feeling from last season and bring them to the reality of a new season. Coach Coughlin let his players hear it in the locker room after the game. His message? “Take a bite of humble pie, it brings you right back to Earth.”
The Giants made a number of mistakes that were uncharacteristic of last year’s team. David Wilson cost the team at least a field goal with a costly fumble. Victor Cruz had several drops and penalties that robbed the offense of multiple first downs. The timing between Manning and his receivers was off, as the receivers couldn’t separate from the new additions to the Cowboy’s backfield.
Linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka acknowledged the fact that there are no players replacing guys who played a key role in last year’s run to the Super...

BOYS DON'T CRY
Despite the evidence to the contrary, running back David Wilson insists that he was not crying on the Giants' sideline following a fumble.
David Wilson was taken out of Wednesday's game against the Cowboys about as quick as he was put in. Wilson, selected by the G-Men in the first round of this year's draft, fumbled on just the second carry of his NFL career, forcing head coach Tom Coughlin to bench the Virginia Tech product for the remainder of Wednesday's season opener. The benching wasn't all that...
The Super Bowl champion New York Giants aren't dealing with a loss of confidence after getting drubbed by the Dallas Cowboys in the kickoff to the NFL season, just a newfound sense of urgency.
For the most part, the mistakes the Giants made in the 24-17 loss Wednesday night were correctable.
What concerned Tom Coughlin was his players' approach. They didn't practice...
I do look like a unicorn Juan…
The Black Unicorn has arrived. The Giants were lacking a TE this season when Jake Ballard was put on waivers and swooped up by the TE whores in New England. The Giants backfired with Ballard, but may have found gold with Bennett.
Eli Manning has not had a athletic TE since Shockey was traded to New Orleans. He has possibly found his man. ...
Food, football, and Big Blue aficionados alike gathered along the edge of glorious Lot E, whether hailing from Chicago, London, Baltimore, or New York/Jersey/I'm tired of this joke.Those icy-blue coldblooded tailgaters were kept warm by the aging September heat.And the illustrious Tailgate32 recreational vehicle, the welcoming nature of adjacent parties and each other's...
Eli Manning looked pretty good when his Giants took on the Dallas Cowboys. Manning went 21/32 for 213 yards and only 1 touchdown, not the typical Eli Manning type of game, but hey it is the season opener. It is clear the New York Giants have a few bugs to work out. The Cowboys defense was able to get to Manning for 3 sacks. While the Giants rushing game looked just OK, the team needs...
TweetNew York Giants rookie RB David Wilson crying after a fumble during season opener against the Dallas Cowboys.
Apparently there is no crying in baseball but there is in football. Wilson is a very good athlete with a lot of potential but had a fumble filled college career, 1 fumble for every 48 carries. I kid this young man with the Tom Hanks line from "League of Their Own...
As an avid Eagles fan, I usually watch these Giants vs. Cowboys games with nonchalance hoping everybody sucks, but this game was different -- I was looking for a hero amongst a den of enemies. Not an easy feat for a Philadelphia fan, but mission accomplished. Between DeMarcus Ware's 100th and 101st sacks, and the Dallas defense practically shutting down the Giants' run...
Eli Manning Toyota commercials are the Peyton Manning United Way sketches. Okay, maybe not, but watching him dress like an accountant with Kenny Powers hair and not be able to catch a set of keys is still pretty funny. *runs out and buys a Toyota because Eli Manning is sorta funny* (via Terez Owens)- Follow us on Twitter @withleather - Follow me personally @MrBrandonStroud and Burnsy...
David...there's no crying in football...well, unless your Dick Vermeil

The NFL is back! It’s an amazing feeling to know that there will be football to watch on every Sunday, Monday and Thursday for the next 4+ months. The NFL season kicked off last night with the Dallas Cowboys traveling to East Rutherford, New Jersey to take on the defending Super Bowl Champion New York Giants and neither team disappointed. It was a thrilling game from start to finish...
The Giants fans were crowd pleasing and faithful to the spirit of the song but didn’t love the repeated “home of the brave” calls at the end. That sounded like a skipping record.
Whether you liked it or not, one thing on which we can agree: the bedazzled No. 18 jersey was sort of weird. The last New York Giants player to wear that number was backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels...
After last night's debacle of the Giants losing their season opener to the Cowboys.
There was a lot of concern on both sides of the ball including the secondary and the running game.
First the secondary, there had no answers on stopping Kevin Olgetree and Dez Bryant as those two had their ways with Corey Webster, Michael Coe and Justin Tryon.
Secondly, there was no flow in...
