Giants concerned about Ebola before making trip face Cowboys

The Cowboys may have another aspect of home field advantage on Sunday: Ebola paranoia. If the New York Giants appear distracted during the game at AT&T Stadium, it may be because the y're worried about the three cases of Ebola virus that have been diagnosed in Dallas. Never mind that the game is being played 20 miles away in Arlington. Giants center J.D. Walton is from Allen...

Giants O-Line need to rebound vs. Dallas

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) After playing its worst game of the season, the New York Giants offense line has something to prove against the Dallas Cowboys. The line's performance against the Eagles Sunday night was embarrassing. Philadelphia had eight sacks and seven quarterback hits and limited what had been an improving offense to 253 yards in recording a shutout. Across the...

Three Studs and Two Duds for the New York Giants Offense

Dud number 1: Victor CruzOnce known as the security blanket for Eli Manning, Victor Cruz has been anything but reliable this season. Cruz has five dropped passes, tied for most in the league with Tampa Bay Buccaneer Vincent Jackson. The number is far too high. His worst game was against the Cardinals Week 2, where a third down drop lead to a Ted Ginn game winning punt return for...

NYG 30 HOU 17

After the preseason, we said 6-10.  After Week 2, when the Giants were 0-2 and everyone else was bungee jumping, we said “6-10 is still a very plausible scenario.”  And after today’s 30-17 win?… Once again, 6-10 is still a very realistic outcome. It’s the prediction we have been sticking with throughout, so no need to change. Another blogger tweeted that “this game...

Giants’ Protection Making Strides

While the results for the passing game as whole– yards, points, turnovers have been less than impressive, the offensive line has showed to be much stronger than the 2013 unit through two games. More often than not Manning has had ample time to scan the field, step up in the pocket and deliver with confidence while stepping into his throws. This happened very infrequently in 2013...

Predictions for each team in the NFC East for 2014

1. New York Giants 9-7   Overall, they’ll be out to prove something after a disappointing 2013. The Giants played as badly as they have in the last decade through most of last season.

Oh, the final score, if it could only tell the real story.  About the only good thing that happened was the final score.  The rest of the game (Q1-Q3) was sloppy, if you are in the optimist’s camp. And it was awful if you are modest in your expectations for this season.  We are modest in our expectations for this season, so it was … bloody awful. We have had one consistent...

Analyzing 2014 Draft Prospects & Projected Roles w/NYG

6'0" | 194 lbs | WR | Odell Beckham Jr.This pick was said to be the best pick of NYG's draft. For many reasons:1.) Versatility is huge in McAdoo's offense. When I say versatility, I mean the slot is a viable option for OBJ, as is the 1 or 2 option. Now if you follow college football and/or you've seen film on OBJ, you see he was used vastly as a KR & PR,...

The New York Football Giants started out of the gate strong as the new NFL year began on Tuesday. The team locked up several of their own players and lured a trio of free agents into the fold. But the progress that was made seemingly came to a screeching halt when free agent acquisition O’Brien Schofield was yanked off the table following concerns over his knee. Since then the...

Report: Giants Sign J.D. Walton

Walton, 26, bounced around a bit in the past year given that the Broncos waived him back in December of last year and was later claimed by the Redskins. Walton underwent surgery last year for a broken ankle, so it will be interesting to see how he if he’s capable of winning a starting...
