While the New York Giants were getting undressed by opponents for the first five games of the season, one New York City strip club apparently didn't want that type of nakedness on the TVs inside their lap dance haven. Rick's Cabaret announced last month it wouldn't show Giants games on its high-def and big screen TVs after customers became depressed at the sight of Big Blue losing their first five contests. It was only when the G-Men finally won a game — Week 7 against the Vikings — that the club decided to put them back on the television screens. "We're taking all the credit for motivating them to get back on the screen and winning three straight," said club spokesperson Lonnie Hanover. He elaborated on the specific moment when the Giants were blacked out from the Midtown Manhattan club in the first place, remembering some fans decked out in jerseys who were surprisingly distracted and displeased even given their surroundings, according to NJ.com. "It was was a couple of guys who had been mean to the girls," Hanover explained. "One guy said, 'Get that off the TV, those guys are for losers, we don't want to watch anymore. It's painful.' And a manager did something about it. ... It got a lot of attention." Hanover also reported the club's business didn't suffer while the Giants were missing from the club's television screens the past five Sundays. But the club will switch all their televisions to show nothing but Giants games when they're broadcast. "The club is for winners," he said. Now about those Knicks games...

When a team starts 0-6 on the season, you rarely expect them to be in the playoff hunt by week 11, but here the New York Giants (3-6) are just a game and a half behind the Dallas Cowboys (5-5) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-5) for first place in the NFC East division. The NFC East has not been one of the stronger divisions in the league so far this year, and that has allowed the...
Andre Brown had 30(!) carries in his season debut for the Giants, as coach Tom Coughlin wisely eased him back into the lineup. With Peyton Hillis pushed into a clear reserve role and David Wilson being shut down, we’re going to see this type of work from Brown for here on out. It probably won’t be 31 touches a week mind you, but he roughly tripled Hillis’ snap count and had...
New Jersey senator Cory Booker has had a public Twitter relationship with stripper Lynsie Lee.
It looks like that relationship helped land Lee a job with Chasing New Jersey, which is New Jersey’s version of political TMZ, according to Hugging Harold Reynolds.
The New York Giants gave Lee media credentials to cover yesterday’s game against the Raiders.
From looking at the video...
What a cute generational story about fame in the Manning family: Just as Archie Manning once had to tell his youngest son, Eli, that not all dads give autographs, Eli and his wife now have to tell their daughter, Ava, that not every father gets a cardboard cutout of himself put up in Dunkin’ Donuts.
Eli Manning was at a Dunkin’ Donuts at the Meadowlands on Tuesday to promote...
New York Giants RB Andre Brown has been cut by five NFL teams, he’s rehabbed from a ruptured Achilles, battled back from a broken left leg only to break it in exactly the same spot again. However, he's found a home with the Giants and his 2013 debut was a smashing success rushing for a career-high 30 carries and 115 yards in the Giants’ win over the Oakland Raiders.
Eli Manning’s teammate Mathias Kiwanuka told the radio station today that since Eli has bailed their butts out of several problems to get a win, the defense now has to do the same for the struggling offense. “You can’t just look at him and say, ‘Oh, he’s the reason (for the team’s struggles this season),’” […]

The New York Giants are rallying around Eli Manning, and it might spur a playoff run.
Manning this season has completed just 55.6 percent of his passes for 11 touchdowns, 16 interceptions, and a 68.5 quarterback rating.
Manning has led the Giants to two Super Bowl championships, and has never been one to throw his teammates under the bus.
Those same teammates are now coming to...

Riding high off a three-game winning streak, the New York Giants are thought to be right back in the playoff mix, but Tom Coughlin and company aren’t exactly sitting pretty at a record of 3-6 and still two games back of the divisional lead.
Jason Pierre-Paul came into Sunday’s game saying this was the most healthy he has been all season. He did not have the breakout performance he might have envisioned, but he showed some signs of the menacing JPP in the Giants’ 24-20 victory over the Raiders.
“This is the best I’ve felt, coming out of the game, starting the game,’’ Pierre-Paul said. “You know, I was...
