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. Eli Manning had been steady ever since he took over in 2005, until 2013 where he and quite frankly the rest of the offense looked dismal. The optimist would tell you that they could have been...

As Goes the Offensive Line, So Go the Giants

Following their disappointing 7–9 performance in the 2013 season—the second straight year that they failed to make the playoffs after their 2011 Super Bowl win—the New York Giants went into the offseason with glaring weaknesses throughout the depth chart.
