Gut Check Time For The Giants

The season is on the line for the Giants as they take on the (5-4) San Francisco 49ers Sunday at MetLife Stadium. The last month has been abysmal for the Giants as they have lost four straight and are dead last in the NFL in total defense.During the Giants four game losing skid, they have been outscored 136-62. Some may attribute the Giants struggles to the rash of injuries they’ve...

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. We have written about how injury-riddled the team is, year after year.  And we compiled a profile of how systemic and structural a problem this injury situation is for the franchise.  So here we watch a game where the Gmen are Gchildren. It’s a practice squad vs...

Five most surprising NFL players heading into Week 6

The NFL never fails to amaze. Just when we acquire an understanding about which players might succeed during a given season, a ton of surprises come out of the wordwork and surprise us all. There have been some pretty good stories through the first five weeks of the NFL. From former first-round busts like Robert Ayers performing at a level that was expected entering the league to...

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...

2014 New York Giants Defensive Preview

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? It was a disappointing defensive year, if not outright terrible. 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. Eli Manning threw 27 interceptions, faced constant pressure, and when he did get protection, he and his receivers were frequently not on the wrong page. Defensively, Big Blue got off to a rough start, but turned things around as the...

Pro Football Focus analyzes Giants’ depth chart

Pretty much my go-to for anything NFL, Pro Football Focus’ Gordon McGuinness did an awesome breakdown of the New York Giants’ depth chart as it currently stands.   Of the 58 players listed, 25 percent as tabbed as “good starters” including quarterback Eli Manning and wideout Victor Cruz. Three are “high quality” talents: cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, offensive...

Can Giants form a fearsome foursome again?

The Giants seem to have done great work rebuilding an offensive line that allowed Eli Manning to get sacked a career high 39 times last year, but there are still many questions along the defensive line. The team is heading into the on-field portion of OTAs hoping that between now and September 8 they can find the players to form a formidable defensive rotation up front. Young players...

Now, as a Giants fan, I believe we have made major splashes this off-season via free agency. On both sides of the ball, that is. Defensively, the additions of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Jameel McClain, Walter Thurmond III, Robert Ayers, Quintin Demps & Zack Bowman are huge assets. DRC brings a shutdown/cover corner to Big Blue. Jameel McClain, a young & talented linebacker...

New York Giants sign DE Robert Ayers

Robert Ayers was a bust as the 18th overall pick in 2009 because he never developed beyond being a solid rotational player, but he’s still a solid rotational player and a good pickup here for a Giants team that had big needs on the defensive line following some off-season losses. He had his best season in his contract year in 2013, when he graded out as Pro Football Focus’ 14th...

Jadeveon Clowney, quarterbacks will affect New York Giants’ first-round pick

This off season has proven not to be typical for the New York Giants in most every aspect, and perhaps that will carry through with the NFL draft. Usually, the G-men give their veteran players the benefit of the doubt, while reaching out for free agent bargains in the second and third tier of free agency. This year, Jerry Reese and company pulled the trigger on players designed...

New York Jets Free Agency – Perspective Piece

Much has been made of the New York Jets free agent strategy to date. Some praise second year GM John Idzik’s meticulous approach. Others condemn him for lacking vision and ignoring blatant holes in the roster. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, some league wide perspective on this free agency period is in order.

The Giants have made significant strides to upgrade their roster this offseason, signing 15 free agents. Soon even more new names will be added to the depth chart after the draft which takes place in a month. Some fresh faces might just be what this team needs after a disappointing 2013 season. But the key to a more successful 2014 won’t be found on the open market or in this year’s...
