Tedy Bruschi: Giants ‘Were Definitely The Better Team’ In Super Bowl XLII

Tedy Bruschi knows firsthand the pain the New England Patriots felt coming so close to the perfect finish only to watch it slip away through the hand of New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree. That’s why it might come as a surprise to some that the former Patriots linebacker told ESPN on Monday that he believes the right team won Super Bowl XLII in...

Five Takeaways from Week 12

That Odell Beckham, Jr. grab was something, but I think we’re showering our praise in the wrong direction. That dream play doesn’t come true without Eli Manning’s wayward throw. Coupled with David Tyree’s Helmet Grab, Manning’s inaccuracy has inadvertently led to the two greatest receptions in NFL history. Eli is the Timothy Dexter of the sports world. This week’s takeaways…...

Eli Manning Found A Mismatch He Liked And Threw An Interception To Chris Borland Anyways

Sometimes, Eli Manning throws some interceptions that seem to make little sense. For every David Tyree helmet-catch that Manning manufactures out of thin-air, there are ten to fifteen passes that Manning forces into areas which the defense punishes. However, this interception by Manning is pretty understandable. When you have speedy wide receiver Odell Beckahm Jr. Article found on...

New York Jets CBS Sadness

A few weeks back I wrote an article breaking down a particular crappy column by Gary Myers of the Daily News. I borrowed the format from an old awesome website called Fire Joe Morgan (FJM) that used to pick apart things in a similar fashion, and we got pretty good feedback here from it. I’ve been waiting for another column to pop up that could match that level of absolute garbage...

NY Giants Week 1 Recap: Panic Button?

Quick: think back to the most recent time the New York Giants were considered a formidable NFC threat. What’s the first thing that popped into your head? Defense. Second thing? Bruising running game. 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...

Hope for a way forward after a week of chaotic insanity

I’ve been writing about, reporting on, and analyzing this sports media industry on a full-time basis for over three years now.  And I can safely say that I’ve never seen a period of time as chaotic, distressing, and insane as what transpired last week. Reflecting over the weekend, it was easy to be discouraged about the current state of our daily sports conversation and generally...

David Tyree: ‘I would absolutely support’ any gay player on Giants

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...

Add dummy Derrick Ward to the list who thinks freedom of speech applies beyond government

The Human Rights Campaign, an LGBT advocacy group, blasted the Giants for bringing David Tyree aboard. Wonder why...hmmm...Could it have been because of that whole "I'd trade my Super Bowl thing?""...I firmly believe that God created and ordained marriage between a man and a woman, I believe that that's something that should be fought for at all costs," Tyree told the New York Daily...

Human Rights Campaign not happy the Giants hired David Tyree

New York Giants Bring Super Bowl 42 Hero David Tyree Back in to the Fold

Former Giants wide receiver David Tyree will forever be known for the clutch catch he made in Super Bowl 42. Not only is it one of the best receptions in recent history for the biggest game of the season, but--well, it was one of the few catches he made during his career. As much as you want to hold on to guys that big plays like that for you the Giants eventually had to let him...

Where are they now?: David Tyree

David Tyree’s NFL career was anything but spectaculuar. In seven seasons (six with the New York Giants), he caught just 54 passes for 650 and four touchdowns. The New Jersey native’s life changed in Super Bowl XLII, however, when he made what is arguably the most amazing play in NFL history. You all know the play. “Catch 42” as it has come to be known, gave the Giants a first...
