Found September 11, 2012 on Ultimate NYG:
Over the course of the season, the numbers we will be passing along will make more sense because they will be compared to earlier games.  So far, the TE, QB, DE and LB evaluations have come through and we can share some "early returns." Remember the grading? +2 for a tremendous play +1 for a good play 0 for doing your job -1 for a poor play -2 for a very bad play Getting a slew of 0's is very respectable.  Especially for younger players.  Remember what Michael Strahan said: before the Super Bowl, the players were told to do your job every play and the ordinary will be extraordinary.  Make tackles.  Make blocks.  Hold onto the ball.  Catch the ball before you run with it.  Do your job.  With that said, here are some early player TOTALS for the game vs Dallas: Michael Boley +6Eli Manning +5Jason Pierre-Paul +5Martellus Bennett +3Keith Rivers +2Mark Herzlich +1Justin Tuck 0Matthias Kiwanuka 0Chase Blackburn -1Jacquian Williams -1Osi Umenyiora -2 Now please keep i...

Have the Giants found stability in the WR core for 2012?

Hakeem Nicks and Victor Cruz are the starters for the New York Giants, but history has shown that the Giants like to change wide receivers almost every year. Since Plaxico Burress’s gun incident, the New York Giants have been trying to find the perfect tandem for Eli Manning, but every year a wide receiver comes and then they go.

8th Annual Tom Coughlin Jay Fund Gala Scheduled for Friday, October 12th

  Other than being one of the most decorated coaches in the NFL, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is widely regarded as being one of the most stand-up individuals around the league. Today, the Tom Coughlin Jay Fund announced that it will be holding the eighth annual Champions for Children Gala at Cipriani (110 East 42nd street between Lexington and Park Ave.) in Manhattan...

Juan Eye On: Eli Manning

Eli Manning had a poor week 1 in the opening game against the Cowboys.  Throwing for 213 yards and 1 touchdown, look for Eli to improve as the year progresses.  As we have seen from previous seasons, he tends to start slow and then gets hot the second half of the season.

Victor Cruz: One-Hit Wonder?

Victor Cruz captured the hearts of many NFL fans with his electric, record-breaking play, entertaining touchdown celebrations and his genuine, humble demeanor on and off the field as a member of the Super Bowl-winning New York Giants last season. But just as quickly as this star was born, it could burn out all the same if he continues to play at a level so unpleasantly displayed...

Early Defensive End Observations from Dallas Game

The amount of data crunching has been very large.  We have not completed and compiled all of the grades from all of the positions yet. While we are awaiting all of the returns from our staff, we coded every single play for many characteristics.  As an example, we tracked different types of pass plays, and slants jumped out at us for their success quantitatively- these small ball...
