Five takeaways from the Washington Redskins loss to the New York Giants

“This was a total team debacle.” – Jay Gruden, last night I couldn’t have put it better myself. The Washington Redskins got pounded by the New York Giants 45-14 at home Thursday night. There really weren’t any positives to take away from this one. A team that was just a handful of plays from being 3-0 now finds itself 1-3 and very banged up. It’s well within the realm...

Short week is long on meaning for Giants, Redskins

WASHINGTON (AP) The New York Giants and Washington Redskins dragged their sore bodies out of bed this week knowing that the next game would be only four days after the previous one. Both teams also know that their respective 1-2 starts won't cut it if the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles are going to keep coming from behind to win every game. So never mind the fact that...

Boston College Has Produced Second-Most Super Bowl Winners In NFL (Photo)

USC. Georgia. Oregon. Boston College? Those first three schools normally come to mind when you think of college football powerhouses that produce NFL talent. The fourth one — at least in recent years — not so much. As it turns out, however, there’s one statistic where the Eagles fly with the big boys — producing Super Bowl champions.

New York Giants talking a whole heap of trash about Houston Texans

You have to hand it to the New York Giants. For an 0-2 team that’s in last place in arguably the worst division in football, they’ve certainly got a lot of spunk in them. Ahead of tomorrow’s matchup with the Houston Texans, the Giants are filling local newspapers with an entire landfill’s worth of trash talk.

New York Giants hope for Jason Pierre-Paul’s return to prominence

Last season, the New York Giants’ pass rush was not the lethal, imposing unit it has become known to be over the last decade-plus. Osi Umenyiora was gone to Atlanta, Mathias Kiwanuka was hot and cold, Justin Tuck had some big games but was mostly mediocre over the course of the entire season and Jason Pierre-Paul was a shell of his former self. Hampered by lingering back issues...

Does Mathias Kiwanuka have a gripe about New York Giants’ pay cut?

Mathias Kiwanuka was a member of two Super Bowl championships with the New York Giants, since being drafted by Big Blue with the 32nd pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. Heading into his ninth season with the team, the man affectionately known as “Kiwi” has been anything but a bust for the G-men. On the other hand, few around the NFL would also say that he has become the high impact...

NFL pay cuts are absolutely out of control

Nobody weeps for the plight of professional athletes. In a country where the average American makes something like $51,000 per year and pro athletes make millions to play a game, that’s not exactly a ground-shaking statement. The NFL is the most popular league in the nation, averaging more viewers and revenue than the other major three sports by a wide margin. Logically you would...

New York Giants love their former Boston College stars

The New York Giants made another offensive move in the fourth round, taking Heisman finalist and Doak Walker Award winner (the best running back in college football) Andre Williams. While the move clearly addresses an uncertainty in the backfield with David Wilson’s health up in the air, the selection goes deeper than just positional need.

New York Giants Draft Review: A look back at the 2006 NFL Draft

Happy Easter Sunday!!! We continue our look back through the past decade of Giants’ draft picks with the 2006 NFL draft.

Are the New York Giants in the market for DeMarcus Ware?

Not so long ago, the Giants front four was one of the most feared in the NFL. This offseason, the defensive line is littered with question marks. Will Justin Tuck leave during free agency? Is the price tag for Linval Joseph too high to re-sign him? Will Mathias Kiwanuka be cut for salary cap reasons? Will Jason Pierre-Paul be able to stay healthy? All of these are of course hypotheticals...
