The Football Fan Spot:
Last week: 8 (-6)
Under Tom Coughlin, they are 53-19 in the first 8 games of a season and 27-39 in the final 8. They have a brutal schedule upcoming, as they host Green Bay, New Orleans, and Philadelphia and go to Washington, Atlanta, and Baltimore. They’ll probably end up somewhere around the 9-7 they were last year. However, that might not cut it this year. Look at Dallas’ schedule: they host Cleveland, Washington, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and New Orleans and they go to Cincinnati and Washington. There’s no reason they can’t go 5-2 and also win 9 games. They rank 10th in yards per play differential and 12th in rate of sustaining drives differential. If they can go +0 or better in turnovers from here on out, they can definitely win this division. I’d be nervous if I was a Giants fan.

BEST OF MAXIM
Per a report for the New York Daily News Gary Myers, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin was so frustrated with his 2-time Super Bowl MVP quarterback Eli Manning that he used “terrible” and “foolish” to describe instances where Manning should have protected the ball better versus trying to make a play. Coughlin typically generalizes his criticism publicly, rarely singling...
According to Mike Garafolo of USA TODAY Sports, the New York Giants worked out running back Joseph Addai this week.

The Giants have an open roster spot, since they just placed rookie defensive tackle Markus Kuhn on season ending injured reserve.
Two Championships in five years and Eli Manning still can't muster much respect in many NFL circles.
Phil Simms said Manning isn’t an elite quarterback, “'When I hear the word elite, I'm thinking about guys that can make unbelievable plays on the field by themselves.” “Eli has been a tremendous team player. He has been MVP of the Super Bowl twice. I know that...
During an appearance on CBS Sports Network’s NFL Monday QB show, former Giants quarterback and CBS analyst Phil Simms said that he doesn’t believe Eli Manning is an elite quarterback.
“No, he is not one of the elites,” Simms said in quotes distributed by CBS, via the New York Daily News. “Because when I hear the word elite, I’m thinking about guys that can make unbelievable...
The word “elite” get thrown around in football a lot, but no one really knows what it refers to. Does it mean that player is currently Top 5 among their position? Does it mean they’re Top 10 at their position all time? Or does it mean that they’re a future hall of famer? To Phil Simms, it may be an even higher honor.
Simms created some controversy on Monday when he said that...
To say that the New York Giants played a bad game on Sunday would be an understatement. Watching that game, many would think that this was the worst game the Giants have played in recent years.
After watching that game, it was hard to tell if the team that was just on the TV was the Giants or if it was a misprint and everyone just watched the Jets.
Despite the horrendous game and...
NY Daily News"No, he is not one of the elites," Simms said. "Because when I hear the word elite, I'm thinking about guys that can make unbelievable plays on the field by themselves. There are very few quarterbacks in that category."So yes, Eli has been a tremendous team player. He has been MVP of the Super Bowl twice. I know that. But the way I look at it...
The Patriots are getting some extra help on their offensive line, even if it may just be for a few days.
Due to the roster exemption that New England received for Aqib Talib, the Patriots have signed a 54th player to their active roster, former Giants guard Mitch Petrus according to Field Yates of ESPN Boston. Petrus was drafted by New York in the fifth round in 2010 out of Arkansas...
