Found December 31, 2012 on Football Nation:
The simple truth is that this is nonsense (and a whole lot of other words you can't say around your kids).The NFL broke its own rules and provided an unfair advantage to the New York Giants, which thankfully proved useless.The NFLPA can't do anything about that advantage and any possible lost wages because they waived their right to continue the chain of lawsuits and court battles when they signed the new CBA.The players have no one to blame but themselves for giving in. That doesn't change the fact that this is an injustice for all the players as well as the staff of two particular teams.Judge David Doty waited until today to hold a hearing on whether or not the NFLPA could sue the NFL for what happened in 2010 (the infamous "uncapped" year that wasn't). It was perfect timing, and if you're a fan of tinfoil hats you'll be claiming some grand conspiracy by the NFL to hide this ruling in a mess of Black Monday tweets and posts.The truth is probably f...

Giants lack late season magic this time around

In reality, this all could have happened last year for the New York Giants. If not for a Victor Cruz 99-yard touchdown catch against the New York Jets, or if not for a spirited blowout win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 17, the New York Giants never would have won their second Super Bowl in four years. This time around, the Giants lack late season magic and things didn’t fall...

Hynoski's 'Hynocerous' TD celebration a big hit with Giants fans

Just when you thought the genteel salsa touchdown celebration of Victor Cruz was enough to entertain New York Giants fans, along comes Henry Hynoski's brutal Rhino dance. The Giants fullback — known to Big Blue fans as "Hynocerous" — unveiled the celebratory dance after catching his first touchdown pass from Eli Manning during the Giants 42-7 blowout of the Philadelphia...

Henry Hynoski did a rhino celebration after scoring his first touchdown

Henry Hynoski celebrated in a fitting way after scoring his first career touchdown. The New York Giants fullback is nicknamed the “rhino,” so after catching a one-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning Sunday, he did a sweet rhino impression. The Giants battered the Eagles 42-7 in the game to finish 9-7 on the season, but they were eliminated from the playoffs after the Bears...

Justin Tuck has a lot to prove in 2013

During the New York Giants end of season press conference this past Monday, general manager Jerry Reese stated that defensive end Justin Tuck has plenty of football left in him.There’s been some speculation that the Giants may end up cutting Tuck this offseason, because of how poorly he’s played over the past couple of seasons.  It looks like he’ll be sticking around for next...

Umenyiora does not expect to be a Giant next season

New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora told the Michael Kay Show in New York that he does not expect to be back with the team next season. The 10-year pro does not like his role as a situational pass rusher and believes he is a starter. "I feel fortunate to be able to play 10 years in New York," he said. "It was a great run. I think now is probably the time...

Eli Manning Dazzles vs. Eagles

New York QB Eli Manning completed just 13 passes Sunday against the Eagles, but five went for touchdowns. He added 208 yards in a 42-7 win.Fantasy Spin:This qualifies as "too little, too late" -- both with fantasy owners and Giants fans -- after Manning threw for one touchdown with two picks over the last two games.

Giants frustrated but hopeful after 9-7 mark

There is an obvious reason why the New York Giants went from a Super Bowl champion to a frustrated team that missed the playoffs. It's consistency. Tom Coughlin's team lacked it in 2012 despite finishing with the same 9-7 record as a year ago when a late rush took them to their second title in five seasons. This year there was no late rush. Just two bad games against Atlanta...

Ahmad Bradshaw Active For New York

As expected, Giants running back Ahmad Bradshaw will play Sunday against the Eagles. Bradshaw was limited in practice this week because of a knee injury.Fantasy Spin:Philadelphia's run defense has been brutal all year (22nd in yards allowed) and New York has an awful lot to play for this week with a playoff berth on the line. Those factors should lead to another big week for...

Victor Cruz Collects 10th TD of Season vs. Philadelphia

Giants receiver Victor Cruz set a new career high with his 10th touchdown of the season Sunday against the Eagles.Fantasy Spin:Cruz had four catches for 52 yards Sunday, giving him 1,092 yards on 87 catches for the year. It was a decline from 2011 when Cruz had 1,536 yards and averaged 18.7 yards per catch. He clearly missed having a healthy Hakeem Nicks on the other side of the field all season.

Sandy Hook community honored by Giants at pre-game ceremony

Nearly 400 students, parents and faculty members from Sandy Hook Elementary School were honorary guests at MetLife Stadium in pre-game ceremony before the New York Giants played the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The honored guests also included 50 members of the Wounded Warrior Project. The 450 strong group formed two lines leading from the tunnels to the field as the players...

Newtown residents honored at game

Carrying signs to express their gratitude and their choice of love over violence in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre, approximately 400 residents of Newtown, Conn., attended the New York Giants-Philadelphia Eagles game Sunday. The residents, including about 200 students from the school system, formed a gantlet to welcome players from both teams before the game...

Giants rout Eagles 42-7 but miss playoffs

The New York Giants rediscovered their pride and dignity in the final weekend of the regular season. The playoff berth that appeared to be a formality for the defending Super Bowl champions after 6-2 start, however, eluded them. Despite getting a career-best five touchdown passes from Eli Manning, New York's playoff hopes ended Sunday minutes after a 42-7 win over the Philadelphia...
