AZ 25 NYG 14

The Giants lost today, but we’ll talk about the game in a couple of moments. What is your time frame for the Gmen?  If your time frame for the team is 2015, then today was ok.  If your time frame for the team is 2014, then today was an unmitigated disaster.  Since we predicted 6-10 before the season started, we are not surprised by the growing pains here after Week 2.  In fact...

2014 Fantasy Football: Who is Jacquian Williams?

Jacquian Williams entered the NFL in 2011 and had a standout rookie season (78 total tackles, 3 fumble recovers and 4 pass deflections) and even made plays during their Superbowl run in 2011.  Big things were expected of Williams soon after as the Giants thought they solved their LB issues; but they where wrong.  Williams battled injuries in 2012 and 2013 and just couldn’t stay...

Breaking down game film: Giants beat Bills 17-13 in preseason opener

As competitive as Giants’ Tom Coughlin is, last night’s 17-13 victory over the Buffalo Bills was still likely a secondary concern. The Super Bowl winning coach surely realizes that he has a plethora of questions to be answered before his team takes on the Detroit Lions on September 8th. Fortunately for Coughlin and his coaching staff, Big Blue has an extra preseason game to...

Linebackers becoming a Big Blue strength

There were moments early in their careers — probably too early — when Spencer Paysinger and Jacquian Williams started games at linebacker for the Giants. They made plays, missed plays, stayed on the roster and did not do enough to seize control of a job. Help has arrived — Jon Beason not long into the 2013 season and Jameel McClain in this year’s free agent haul. Just like...

Analyzing the 2011 Draft: New York Giants

Jon Beason not expected to be ready for week one

Dan Graziano of ESPNNewYork.com doesn’t expect starting middle linebacker Jon Beason to be ready for training camp after suffering a broken foot during OTA’s. Let’s assume, for the sake of this discussion, that middle linebacker Jon Beason does not make it back from his foot injury to play for the New York Giants in Week 1 in Detroit. If that is the case (as seems likely...

New York Giants: 2013 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings (#19)

Last week: 16 (-3) Like the Steelers, the Giants can’t be expected to lose the turnover battle by an average of -3 by game. That would be a -48 turnover margin that would blow the modern day record for a season out of the water. The Giants are probably too talented to even get close to the record. Eli Manning won’t continue throwing an interception on 7.0% of his passes and they...

Jacquian Williams & the New York Giants Linebackers

The linebackers unit is a big revolving door at the moment because as one Giants coach put it: all starting spots are up for grabs. The surest possible starter may be Mark Herzlich manning the middle but even that is not a lock. The Giants opened camp with Herzlich playing the middle along with Keith Rivers and Spencer Paysinger playing the outside. It is a little surprising to see...

Giants make Williams work for starting LB job

When the New York Giants released Michael Boley in a salary-cap move after missing the playoffs last season, many expected Jacquian Williams to inherit the weakside linebacker job. It didn't happen. The Giants are making Williams work for the starting gig, and they are not making it easy for the third-year pro who missed six games in 2012 with a knee injury. When training...

Bucky Brooks: Giants linebacker Jacquian Williams is a player to watch

As we get closer to the beginning of the 2013 NFL season, NFL Network analyst Bucky Brooks believes that Giants linebacker Jacquian Williams will be a player to watch. The Giants’ linebacker corps has represented one of the team’s most glaring weak spots in the past few years. However, the return of a healthy Williams could bring some speed and athleticism to a unit that has...

New York Giants offseason needs

1. Middle Linebacker The New York Giants can’t seem to find a capable mike linebacker. Chase Blackburn, Mark Herzlich, Greg Jones and Jacquian Williams have all tried and failed to fill the hole over the past two seasons. Kevin Minter and Alec Ogletree could be options in the first round. Manti Te’o is another possibility. 2. Tight End Martellus Bennett may be re-signed, but...

Despite the holiday season nearing, New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin wasn't very chipper as he took the podium for his weekly Wednesday press conference. Following a very disappointing 24-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, he was in no real mood to dilly-dally. Instead, his focus was squarely on Sunday afternoon and the Cincinnati Bengals.
