NYG 24 WAS 13

As the old coaches adage goes, “a team should never apologize for a win.” But to many Giants fans this was a win that was less than favorable as it came at the expense of a better position in the 2015 draft. Regardless, the Giants got the win and remain in a strong position (7th overall) to select a top tier prospect for next season. On to the game review. Offensively we were...

Bad defense is to blame for the New York Giants four game losing streak

The New York Giants are now, statistically, the worst defense in the NFL allowing over 400 yards of offensive per contest. While it would be easy to say that quarterbacks are taking advantage of a decimated secondary, this is not the case. The problem lies within the relatively healthy front four as the teams ranks dead last in rush defense. The Seahawks 350 rushing yards against...

IND 40 NYG 24

The score should fool no one.  The Giants were sleepwalking no-shows again and got throttled.  Uncompetitive.

Injuries complicate New York Giants’ roster decisions

With first cuts coming on Tuesday, the New York Giants have decisions to make. The idea that players earn rosters spots is not always true. Injuries, specialization, draft history and position have to be considered when constructing the 53-man roster. For borderline players, the ability to play special teams is a must. Until we know the status of Geoff Schwartz, there is little sense...

Charting the Colts’ Offensive Line: Preseason Week 2

The Colts’ offense appears to be on the cusp of breaking through. Five first-team drives in two preseason games have generated 13 points, a middling figure, but three of the four drives that started in the Colts’ half have reached their opponents’ territory (one began in the Giants’ half after a turnover). Aside from that running back who makes everyone grumpy, the biggest...

This is the second in a nine part series previewing the Eagles division opponents. Today, we look at the New York Giants defense. What was the Giants defense like last year?

The defense finished top 10 in yards per game, but closer to 20th in points per game, and often looked more like the Little Giants than those Super...

New York Giants: The Return of Jason Pierre Paul

The New York Giants are banking that Jason Pierre Paul is fully recovered and 100% entering the 2014-15 season. Also, this will be Jason Pierre Paul’s contract year and if he expects a huge pay raise, he needs to repeat his 2011 performance (16.5 sacks).  The last two seasons (8.5 sacks combined) have been a struggle for JPP as he battled shoulder and back injuries that limited...

New York Giants Need Jason Pierre-Paul To Lead Them Back To The Playoffs

Jason Pierre-Paul looks to rebound to his 2011 form- Mandatory Credit: Ben Solomon/ New York Times Not much went right for the New York Giants in 2013.
