Coaches always tell their backups to be ready. A play or an injury often separates them from being a starter or - at the least - a contributor.
With the New York Giants, that happened to running back Andre Brown, wide receiver Ramses Barden and rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley over the past five days, and boy did they take advantage.
Brown, who has been cut seven times by five different...

If you were a football newbie watching Deion Sanders interview Eli Manning before last night’s game versus Carolina, you may have had the impression that Cam Newton was the two-time Super Bowl MVP. At one point...
No Hakeem Nicks? No Ahmad Bradshaw? No problem. NFL teams often use the phrase “next man up” when starters go down with injuries, and the Giants exemplified the importance of depth by adhering to it on Thursday night. Their offense looked as good as it has all year, as Eli Manning had his way with the Carolina secondary and reserves Andre Brown and Ramses Barden enjoyed career...
According to Joe Person of the Charlotte Observer, during last night’s blow out loss to the New York Giants, Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith got upset with quarterback Cam Newton for sitting on the bench and sulking.
“I watched D.A. and Jimmy (Clausen), they don’t play in 20-something games last year. And they get up and they observe and learn and get those mental reps,”...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Picking up where they left off in their last game, the New York Giants steamrolled the Carolina Panthers, in part by unleashing a new weapon. The success nearly tired out the Giants. Andre Brown ran for a career-best 113 yards and scored two touchdowns as the Giants cruised to a 36-7 victory Thursday night at Bank of America Stadium. The Giants, who got five...

What a game it was for the New York Giants as an entire unit. Everything was working for them, their offense put up 36 points, their defense forced 3 Cam Newton interceptions and even their special teams got into the action with 2 forced fumbles. While the team performed well as a whole, it was 2 players who put in serious work in fantasy this week.
I will start with the player...
I can’t decide if I just love the fact that Greg Schiano had his players jumping over the pile on the Giants final kneeldown or if I think it’s bush league.
I do know that I don’t give a crap that whiny ass Tom Coughlin doesn’t like it. Too damn bad, Tom.
This Week’s Sucked And Won: Ryan Williams, Arizona (10 carries for 13 yards). Besides being completely...
Panthers receiver Steve Smith says he'' lit into'' Cam Newton
about his actions on the sidelines when the young quarterback was
replaced late in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's 36-7
