Five NFL teams that improved during the 2016 offseason

Rex Ryan can claim that the Bills are the NFL’s 2016 offseason champions, but since pads aren’t worn during the offseason, that hollow title is up for debate. Offseason activities across the league ended Thursday with 25 teams wrapping up their mandatory minicamps. The other seven teams finished last week. So now we can look back at free agency, the draft, OTAs and minicamp...

As Copa America Centenario Takes the US by Storm, Ticket Prices Vary Greatly Depending on Team and Stadium

The sport of soccer may not typically see the same level of popularity in the United States as it does internationally, but that certainly hasn’t been the case this month as Copa America Centenario, the special centennial edition of Copa America, takes place on American soil for the first time. With a chance to see some of South America’s top soccer players– such as Colombia’s...

NFL Draft: WR vs OT

Wide Receiver or Offensive Tackle? Which one is the better pick in Round 1 & Round 2? We analyzed the NFL Drafts from 2006-2012 in the first 2 rounds to see how those WRs and Ts did.  Some people do not like it when I refer to WRs and RBs as “toys,” so I felt that we were all entitled to a little more objective data on the output of these positions, specifically the players...

NYG Glass Half Full?

It is way too early to get into predictions about how the 2016 will unfold.  Last year at this time, we penned an article that got bullish on 2015, qualified it with how we would obviously need to see what training camp/preseason looked like, but 3 days later disaster struck.  Will Beatty tore his pectoral muscle in the weight room.  Not to be outdone, 2 months later JPP blew...

Eli Manning salsa dances with Victor Cruz

Eli and Peyton Manning are all business on the field, but they’ve been known to let their hair down and have some fun when they’re off it. Peyton busted out some dance moves on the practice field in the past, and recently sang “Rocky Top” at a Nashville bar. Eli is a bit more quiet and soft spoken, but he still knows how to get it in. Check out this recent attempt to dance...

Eli Manning ‘really excited’ about Giants adding Sterling Shepard

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is unsurprisingly thrilled about the addition of second-round receiver Sterling Shepard, according to his father. “Eli’s really excited about that,” Archie Manning said, via the Houston Chronicle. “After he was drafted, I got texts from guys like Bob Stoops, Barry Switzer and Spencer Tillman – all loyal Sooners – telling me not...

Giants GM Jerry Reese blasts draft critics

Criticized by some for his selection of cornerback Eli Apple at No. 10 overall in the 2016 NFL draft, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese fired back at draft pundits on Monday. “When somebody doesn’t know what they’re talking about, it’s easy to depict it that way,” Reese said, via NJ.com. “Because they don’t know what they’re talking about.” Reese and the...

2016 NFL Draft: Day 3

The Giants did not get value in Round 1 through Round 3.  But that changed in a big way in Rounds 4 and Round 5.  Wonder, the UltimateNYG draft analyst, was very positive on both Round 4 pick BJ Goodson and he was even more effusive on RB Paul Perkins. BJ Goodson: Productive all the time on the field. “He’s a football player,” says Wonder, which is high praise for anyone...

2016 NFL Draft- Round 2 & 3

The Giants drafted WR Sterling Shepard and S Darian Thompson. Shepard was ranked 49th by us out of our top 50, so he’s a good solid player. He’s got good hands. He’ll be able to help the team because he’s a good WR. But just like with Eli Apple, another good player, the Giants missed another opportunity to get a terrific Offensive Tackle. This time the pick was Jason Spriggs...

NYG select Eli Apple

Last year, the Giants were hot for T Brandon Scherff.  We did not like the prospect, certainly not at 9th overall, because we did not project Scherff as a Tackle, and believed he was going to be a Guard.  You do not take a Guard 9th overall.  Well, the Redskins saved Jerry Reese from himself, because they took Scherff at 5 and forced Reese to do the right thing and take true Tackle...

2016 NFL Draft Part 7: Eve of the Draft

Part 1: Four realistic possibilities that we prefer for the Giants in Round 1 are T Ronnie Stanley, DE DeForest Buckner, DE Shaq Lawson or CB Vernon Hargreaves. Part 2: When you pick 10th overall, certainty should be high and risks should be low. Prospects that have bad injuries in college like Myles Jack or Laquon Trendwell have great upside but also are at risk of having shortened...

2016 NFL Draft Part 6: Wonder’s Draft Board

Our analyst is not going to dilute his opinion to fit in with the masses.  He is unequivocal that this 2016 NFL Draft s*cks for talent.  Wonder: “If I can’t get one of my Top 6 guys for the Giants at 10 overall (especially considering they are taking 2 QBs early who are not in my 1st Round), I desperately want to trade down. If Elliott or Jack or Treadwell or Bosa is there...

2016 NFL Draft Part 5: Offensive Tackle Etc..

There are two classes of OT.  Tunsil and Stanley are in Group 1.  Conklin, Decker, Spriggs and Efedi are in Group 2.  So there are 6 really credible players who are candidates for the Giants to play at T for the next 8-10 years.  Of course Tunsil will be long gone.  But the other 5 are possible.  We think that Group 2 are not worthy of 10th overall.  Spriggs and Efedi make...

2016 NFL Draft Part 4: Wonder’s Sleeper

Some people have Wonder’s sleeper as the 13th rated QB in the NFL Draft.  NFL.com has this QB as the 9th best of a weak class.  But Wonder thinks the Giants can take this QB in Round 2 (or Round 3 if they think he can fall to that spot) if he passes the interview and workout.  Who is this QB? The QB- Cardale Jones. The interview: Are you willing to sit behind Eli for a few...

Giants owner says NFL could eventually eliminate kickoff

When the NFL moved the kickoff from the 30 to the 35-yard line in 2012, there was talk that the kickoff could be eliminated completely at some point in an attempt to make the game safer. That discussion had been dormant since then, until Giants co-owner and NFL Competition Committee member John Mara told Giants.com Tuesday that while the committee isn’t ready to abolish the...

2016 NFL Draft Part 3- More Player Evaluations

Generally speaking, our Draft analyst Wonder believes that 2016 is a weak class.  That starts with his belief that all 3 QBs who are featured prominently in Round 1 discussions are not Round 1 quality.  Jared Goff, Carson Wentz and Paxton Lynch are not Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger, whether they get drafted in those spots or not.  And given the move by the...

What do Odell Beckham Jr., Rob Gronkowski, Danny Amendola and Drake have in common? They were all hanging out together at Drake’s mansion on Tuesday, and the three NFLers were all rocking track suits in true throwback fashion. Beckham has been living with Drake, and judging by the video embedded below, maybe he’s auditioning to be a backup dancer, who knows. We’ll start with...

10 NFL draft prospects with the most bust potential

The names of every player who could possibly be taken in the 2016 NFL draft are on the walls at 32 team headquarters around the league. The order of those names is different depending on each team’s assessment of the player. Some of those names might even have stars next to them. The fact of the matter is that most of the names on those draft boards will be unrecognizable to the...

Packers, Giants among NFL teams against playing in China

According to Ashley Fox of ESPN, the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants are among the teams that would be unwilling to play a regular-season game in China. “We would not be in support of that,” Packers president...

2016 NFL Draft Part 2- Floors and Ceilings

When our draft analyst, Wonder, looks at a college prospect, he sees a relief map. He projects where a player will get to in the Pros but he also gets a sense of their ceiling and floor. Ceiling is potential upside. Floor is worst case. You’ve seen him at times label a player feast or famine. That’s another way of saying he has the potential to be great (high ceiling) and the...

Just Say No to Running Back in Round 1

We’ve gone through this before. Let’s go through it again. The 2016 RB flavor of the NFL Draft is Ezekiel Elliott. Last year it was ACL-injured Todd Gurley. No. I don’t care. Each year it’s the next Jim Brown, Barry Sanders and Adrian Peterson wrapped into one. I don’t care if you tell me in advance that this next RB draft prospect is going to the Hall of Fame. It’s not...

The Odell Beckham-Josh Norman feud may never end. It started when the two players squared off back in December, and beat the hell out of one another. Beckham put a cheap shot on Norman with his helmet, and the Panthers cornerback clearly hasn’t forgotten. Norman was asked about Beckham on ESPN’s SportsNation, and downplayed the receiver’s skill set, saying he’s “OK.”...
