New York Jets
The New York Giants faced off against the New York Jets at the Meadowlands last night in a much anticipated preseason game.
The atmosphere was playoff-like as both teams were ready to claim bragging rights in New York.
The final score was 26-3 Giants, but that did not tell the whole story of this game.
Despite winning by a wide margin, the Giants' first-unit did not control the line of scrimmage on offense as Eli Manning (7/14 for 62 yards and 1 INT) didn’t seem in rhythm at the start of the game.
Also not in rhythm was the Giants' running game which averaged a pathetic 1.8 yards per carry for a total of 58 yards rushing. The only element of the Giants' offense that impressed me was the wide receivers as Victor Cruz, Rueben Randle, Jerrel Jernigan, David Douglas and Isaiah Stanback all displayed solid route-running and soft hands.
Offensively, the Giants only managed one touchdown and that came late in the 4th quarter when third-string quarterback Ryan Perrillou...

Tim Tebow's 25th birthday was, well, very much publicized. Anyone who turned on the TV this past Tuesday, particularly ESPN, found that out, as the Jets quarterback was the subject of plenty of discussion. Then again, that's not exactly a diversion from the norm. What is somewhat unique, however, is how one Alabama pizzeria decided to mark the occasion. Joe Carlucci, owner...
We re-tweeted a link to this video, which was posted to Twitter by Giants punter Steve Weatherford yesterday … but after re-watching it a few more times, we decided it deserved its own post.
The clip shows Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul carrying teammate CB Prince Amukamara over his shoulder down a hallway, and tossing him into a cold tub. At the beginning of the video, JPP is surrounded...
New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford took a video of defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul carrying cornerback Prince Amukamara to the cold tub and tossing him in.
I wonder what caused JPP to toss the Prince in the cold tub. And I wonder what Giants head coach Tom Coughlin thinks of this.
I am going to treat this article like a compliment sandwich, starting and ending with something positive about the New York Jets with all the criticism in-between. So basically everything on this team besides the offense will be the bread and the offense will be the steaming pile of crap in-between those slices of bread.
The New York Jets have a very good defense. It won’t be...
Stuff like this happens all the time in NFL locker rooms, only it’s called hazing, and it’s usually rookies on the receiving end of pranks perpetrated by team veterans. So it’s a little odd to see second year DB Prince Amukamara get carried down a hallway hulking 6-foot-5, 280 pound DE Jason Pierre-Paul, and it’s even odder seeing Amukamara’s reaction to getting tossed...
It was a prank Jason Pierre-Paul had waiting for fellow N.Y. Giants teammate Prince Amukamara, as Paul dumped Amukamara into a tub filled with cold water.The prank could land the two men in some hot water with their head coach Tom Coughlin. N.Y. Daily News is reporting that Coughlin is disappointed that the video was released, which went viral shortly afterwards after fellow punter...
Last Monday, New York Giants cornerback Corey Webster tweeted a photo of rookie wide receiver Rueben Randle taped up in a cold tub.

I got a feeling after this picture of Randle and the recent video of Prince Amukamara getting thrown into a cold tub, the Giants will be...
MetLife Stadium: Think positive won't you?Forget Mark Sanchez interception returned for a touchdown. Make believe Wayne Hunter isn't the Jets right tackle. Stop talking about how Tim Tebow led the team to three points against the Giants second team defense.The usually radiant Rex Ryan was dreary at the podium tonight, saying, "You can say there were some positive...
Giants punter Steve Weatherford has issued an apology via Twitter for posting a video online of Jason Pierre-Paul rather violently dunking teammate Prince Amukamara into a cold tub. "I want to apologize to the fans... The video I posted was distasteful. Our team is a family, and we love each other. I am sorry to the fan," wrote Weatherford on Twitter Sunday evening. Earlier...
It's grainy because it's so scandalous.When I saw a bunch of people Tweeting about New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford this morning, my first thought was, “Sloooooooooooow news day.” Or maybe he was abducted by intergalactic talking raccoons, in which case, awesome! And now that I know why people are buzzing about him, I think he’d probably prefer that some spaceships...
Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks practiced Monday for the first time since suffering a broken foot during the team's offseason program on May 24. "Big day," said Nicks, who returned to individual work last week. "My mind is saying, 'Take it easy, but at the same time still be smart about it.' Still want to be on pace to make it back for the first (regular...
The New York Giants and New York Jets clash in what is always an exciting preseason matchup filled with highlight-reel grabs and breakout performances.
Two years again, Victor Cruz caught everyone’s eye and presented everyone with a wonderful preview of what was to come for him the following season. Could someone do the same this season for either team?
There will be much to watch...
New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara probably will miss the season opener against the Dallas Cowboys because of a high ankle sprain.
In discussing his team's health heading into the NFL kickoff Wednesday, coach Tom Coughlin said it doesn't look as if Amukamara will be ready for the game.
Rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley is going to try to test his turf toe. Coughlin...
Joe Namath is one of the most controversial characters in the history of the NFL. He kept that going tonight with this tweet as Tim Tebow got ready to take the field against the New York Giants.

Mark Sanchez had an interesting night against the Giants. The Jets weren...
In May, New York Jets offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo gave a rather graphic seal of approval on right tackle Wayne Hunter. "This guy is the starting right tackle," DeGuglielmo said, according to Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger. "Until they tell me otherwise, until they ship him out of this building or until they shoot me dead in my office, that son-of-a-gun...
