Third? Timely big plays from Eli Manning and Victor Cruz/Mario Manningham/David Tyree/whoever else was running down the field that day. The Giants didn’t win two Super Bowls in...

He saw Plaxico Burress talking with David Tyree talking with Mario Manningham, a three-way conversation that got Randle dreaming. “You’re going to think about it, it’s just part of the game,’’ Randle told The Post. ...

David Tyree: I would support any Giants player who identified as gay

When the Giants earlier this week hired former receiver David Tyree as their new director of player development, the announcement unleashed a firestorm of controversy that focused on Tyree's past comments about marriage equality. And with the fact that the first openly-gay player is beginning his rookie season, taking a look back at Tyree's anti-gay thoughts led to a hailstorm...

What if David Tyree dropped the Helmet Catch?

It is one of the most iconic plays in NFL history. On a third-and-five with the Super Bowl on the line, Eli Manning escapes Adalius Thomas and finds David Tyree in the middle of the field for one of the greatest catches in the history of football. The Giants would go on to win the game and stun the undefeated Patriots. But what if Tyree didn't hold on? The Patriots win Super...

Group Protests Giants Hiring of David Tyree Because of His Views on Gays

The one thing I can never understand about protest groups is that they protest people having a personal opinion. But, if someone would discriminate against them for their personal beliefs they would think that is wrong. I find that to be hypocritical. There is a difference between saying I hate all gays and and saying I don’t think you are born gay. One is discriminatory the other...

Excerpt from "Strength of a champion"

My favorite Super Bowl moment of all-time didn't involve anything that happened in an actual game. David Tyree's catch, Ben Roethlisberger's perfect pass to Santonio Holmes, and all of Adam Vinatieri's clutch kicks take a back seat to a scene I witnessed prior to kickoff last year at Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
