Amani Toomer compares Tyree, Edelman Super Bowl catches

“Tyree had a greater level of difficulty” David Tyree or Julian Edelman: whose improbable fourth-quarter Super Bowl reception was better? I posed the question to New York Giants’ wide receiver Victor Cruz and he responded, “Tyree, not even close.” Former Giants receiver Amani Toomer agrees and provides more context. In a video on the NFL’s official site, Toomer detailed...

Giants legend Amani Toomer isn't buying into Super Bowl hype

The Super Bowl champ thinks this season's team has fatal flaws. With the Giants hitting their stride with four straight wins, there have been some comparisons drawn to the franchise's Super Bowl winning teams in the 2007 and 2011 seasons. But one of the leaders of the 2007 team isn't buying into the hype of the 6-3 Giants. "Both of those Super...

Grant Paulsen’s Rebuttal to Amani Toomer’s Jay Gruden Take

Former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer had some… interesting things to say about the Redskins this week. Toomer unleashed his unguarded thoughts on a report which had signaled tension within the Redskins locker room, centered around growing frustration with quarterback Kirk Cousins, who has the Redskins off to an 0-2 start. This is all payback, in some way, for how Jay Gruden...

Amani Toomer: Gruden Ripping RG3 to Blame for Current Finger-pointing

Former Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer is questioning what he believes to preferential treatment toward Kirk Cousins, treatment, Toomer says, Jay Gruden never afforded Robert Griffin III. Toomer has been openly critical of the Redskins’ support for their starting quarterback; last week, he stated his belief they may have “made a huge mistake with Kirk Cousins.” On Wednesday...

Giants great Amani Toomer warns not to overreact to Week 1

This week we will start to learn if the Giants earned all the plaudits they received on the NFL’s “Overreaction Monday,” when many proclaimed them the team to beat in the NFC East. They won in Dallas, the Eagles were also victorious, but it was against the hapless Browns, and Monday night, the Redskins would...

Toomer: Redskins ‘Might Have Made a Huge Mistake’ with Cousins

Kirk Cousins, on paper, didn’t have a terrible game in Monday night’s season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He didn’t throw a touchdown and was hit with two interceptions, but he completed 30 of 43 passes for 329 yards, and the second interception was somewhat controversial — the ball appeared to hit the ground, but it came at the end of the game, with the result...

One & Done: In 1998, Kent Graham, Giants shocked undefeated Broncos

In the world of sports, athletes often dedicate their entire lives to reaching the pinnacle of their profession, but for many, life at the top can be short-lived. Sometimes all a player gets to experience at the highest level is one minute on the court, one trip to the plate, one shot on goal or one checkered flag, but more often than not, that fleeting moment in the spotlight is...

Amani Toomer: Scherff is built in same mold as Chris Snee

Amani Toomer finished his career with the New York Giants as the team's all-time leading wide receiver in receiving yards, receptions, receiving touchdowns, and most consecutive games with at least one reception (94). If you expected him to predict that the Giants would take a wide receiver with the No. 9 overall pick in this Thursday's 2015 NFL Draft, you were wrong. Toomer broke...

NFL Draft Intangibles

Hunger and motivation are difficult to quantify. You never truly know how far a player will go to get to the next level. Amani Toomer was a Round 2 WR who my father loved out of Michigan. He had a great motor. My father (who went to college in the Big Ten, and watches a lot of those games) regaled me with stories about Toomer.  There was one where Toomer returned a punt and seemingly...
