Is New York Giants QB Eli Manning the least-athletic QB in the NFL?

Quarterback remains the most-important position in all of sports, but that doesn’t mean it’s not evolving. In fact, the past 10 years have seen a drastic shift in the way success is defined behind center. No longer are quarterbacks asked to simply stand in the pocket and deliver passes to receiver. More and more, they are becoming dynamic, two-way threats, players who can torment...

Giants To Make Serious Run At Ndamukong Suh

Ndamukong Suh wants the bright lights and big city that New York has to offer. He’s been vocal about his love for the Big Apple, and that’s one of the biggest reasons he signed with Roc Nation Sports. Adam Schefter believes the love is mutual from at least one New York team. The Giants are reportedly set to make a serious run at landing the monster. During a radio interview...

Giants are gambling big on Jason Pierre-Paul

The New York Giants don’t like paying big bucks to anyone, regardless of whether they’re in-house or street free agents. But the G-Men also seem to realize that the window for another Super Bowl is still slightly open with Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr., which might explain why they decided on Monday to keep their best defensive player despite the price tag associated...

San Diego Chargers: Biggest Draft Day Regret In Franchise History

The San Diego Chargers have been guilty of getting rid of or negligent in drafting Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks. Just look at their history: they traded the rights to Eli Manning, released Drew Brees and passed on selecting Tom Brady in the NFL Draft. The common thread between all three is the ability to play at their best in big games. How often does a franchise regret their...

NFL Free Agency Faces Law of Diminishing Return

Imagine a world where the teams of its wildly popular and most profitable sport had annual public hand-wringing sessions about whether or not to keep or pursue the players that play the best.  In this world, seasons end and the debate immediately commences on whether or not you really need the really good players (read: expensive).  The real twist is that many of these players...

Turns out the only thing that New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning does better than beat Tom Brady in the Super Bowl is steal french fries from helpless little girls.

How did New York Giants QB Eli Manning fare in this week’s QB Rankings?

Quarterback is the most important position in all of sports. That’s why teams are so willing to pony up big bucks to a signal caller when they have (or think they have) a guy who can do the job. One look at the highest paid players in the NFL will support this fact; it’s a list littered with QBs. But part of the equation is also tied to supply and demand. Sometimes, teams are...

New York Giants climb in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects. As a result, teams look slightly different now than they did when the regular season ended. And that means it’s time to once again grade each franchise in...

Giants won’t let Jason Pierre-Paul hit free agency

Tim Heitman/USA TODAY Sports   The New York Giants will use their franchise tag on defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul if a long-term deal by March 2 cannot be reached, reports ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Pierre-Paul’s one-year franchise tag could cost the Giants as much as $15 million. The 26-year-old Pierre-Paul has 42 career sacks, including 12.5 last season.  He is looking...

Giants GM isn’t counting on Victor Cruz recovering

New York Giants schedule preview

Even though the New York Giants have missed the playoffs five of the past six seasons, optimism for Eli Manning and the offense are high due to a certain wide receiver they drafted 12th overall in the 2014 NFL Draft.

New York Giants: NFL Draft Edition

The New York Giants have the 9th draft pick for the 2015 draft. It is the first time since 2004 that the Giants have had a top-10 draft pick. In 2004, the Giants picked Phillip Rivers at No. 4, who was later traded to the San Diego Chargers in exchange for their now franchise quarterback Eli Manning. The saving grace of the 2014 draft was explosive rookie Odell Beckham Jr., who was...

Shanahan: Peyton avoided NFC East, playing against Eli

  Mike Shanahan had Peyton Manning atop his wish list. Instead, he had to settle for Robert Griffin III.   Shanahan’s time with the Washington Redskins was far from a success, and a lot of the reason was poor quarterback play. Had Shanahan got his way — and convinced Manning to sign in D.C. after being released by Indianapolis — Shanahan might still be running...

New York Giants: It’s time to introduce an alternate uniform

It baffles me that the New York Giants don’t have an alternate uniform. It seems like every other team in the NFL has an alternate jersey or throwback uniform that they wear once or twice a season, but not the Giants. The San Diego Chargers “powder blues”, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 70’s inspired “creamsicle” uniforms are two of the most famous alternate uniforms...

Should the New York Giants consider a QB in free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

2015 Packers Setting Up More Like 1996 than 2008

Somewhere everything went wrong.  It’s hard to put my finger on when exactly it happened.  The Green Bay Packers won the World Championship in 2010.  It was a magical run.  There might have been concern that it was fluky.  No question.  The Packers were only 10-6 that season after all.  They had to win their last two games to even qualify for the postseason.  The team then...

Should the New York Giants consider a RB during free agency?

Heading into last season, the general consensus in the NFL was that running the football isn’t as important as it used to be. More and more teams were employing a running-back-by-committee approach than ever before. The day and age of the dominant, every-down back seemed to be a thing of the past. But that may be about to change, as everything in the NFL is cyclical. The production...

Giants Better Off Waiting To Sign Eli Manning To A Contract Extension?

According to Paul Schwartz of the New York Post, it may not make sense for the Giants to sign QB Eli Manning to a “mega- deal” this offseason, despite the fact that he’s currently in the final year of his current agreement. Schwartz writes that “with so much long-term uncertainty surrounding the team, from the head coach on down, it might be unwise to saddle the organization...
