From The Fans: The Patriots Running Back Situation

This preseason, one area of focus for me has been the Patriots running back group. The Pats lost their two backs with the highest number of carries in 2014 when Shane Vereen and Stevan Ridley decided to sign elsewhere in the offseason. Shane Vereen is now with the New York Giants while Ridley signed a one-year deal with the New York Jets. As it stands right now it seems that the...

Five unsexy players who'll win your fantasy league for you

Zach Martin Everyone's in love with Odell Beckham, Jr., Le'Veon Bell and the rest of the top picks everyone plans on making in this year's fantasy drafts. I get that. They put up big numbers, make flashy plays and are the guys you watch when you're out at the local watering hole.

New York Giants Position Preview: Running Backs

Last season, the New York Giants suffered from a very subpar running game. The Giants finished 23rd overall in the league with 100.2 yards per game, and 1,603 rushing yards. While a large amount of the offensive problems the Giants faced were due to the inadequacies on the offensive line, the running game did not seem to help matters. Their running game, too, was plagued by injuries...

What does Shane Vereen bring to the table for the New York Giants offense?

With the signing of Shane Vereen, the New York Giants are giving Eli something that he hasn’t had since Tiki Barber for the last three years of his career: a true pass catcher coming out of the backfield. Eli completed one hundred and sixty two passes to Barber over their three years playing together, which was very impressive for a running back in his early thirties. New York’s...

Areas of concern for the New York Giants in 2015

The New York Giants are slated to begin training camp on July 31, and the team has a lot to look forward to: a healthy Victor Cruz, a revamped offensive line, the outstanding Odell Beckham Jr., and a quarterback determined to make up for last year’s disappointing 6-10 record. However, the Giants have always been a team with weaknesses, and this year is no different. There are a...

Three reasons why the Giants offense will finish in the top five

The New York Giants offense has been inconsistent with Eli Manning and him having new targets every year, but 2015 looks like it could be the biggest of his career. Victor Cruz returns healthy, and Shane Vereen comes in to give the Giants a duo threat as a running back and receiver. With Ben McAdoo’s West Coast offense system involved, the Giants should take all rewards from it...

New York Giants running back Shane Vereen had a prominent role while with the Patriots but was limited to about 10-15 plays not counting blocking on passing downs. According to Dan Graziano of ESPN, Vereen will get much more playing time in New York as the team will use him a little differently than the Patriots.

Former New England Patriot Shane Vereen: Tom Brady told my parents I’d have a big Super Bowl

I mentioned in my previous article that I believed former New England Patriot Shane Vereen deserved to be the MVP of Super Bowl XLIX when he caught 11 passes for 64 yards, many of them on the final two fourth-quarter touchdown drives for the Patriots, and added 13 yards rushing. As it turns out, quarterback Tom Brady also thought Vereen would have a big game. “It was funny. [My...

Tom Brady predicted a big Super Bowl game for Giants' Vereen

The New York Giants didn't just sign running back Shane Vereen because of his Super Bowl performance, but that game certainly helped make the case. The back certainly deserve an MVP vote or two--he led the team with 11 receptions and totaled 64 receiving yards and 13 rushing yards. Several of Vereen's 11 catches came on the Patriots' final scoring drive, on key downs and distances...

Don't tell New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings that this is his "off time" before the training camp grind begins.
