Giants Injury Update: Odell Beckham out Week 3

Tom Coughlin has squashed any speculation as to whether or not Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham will be playing this week. He won't be. Again. Beckham has missed all of training camp due to a hamstring injury., and all of the Giants preseason games. Missing this much time can be incredibly detrimental to rookie development.

Tiki Barber has not been shy about criticizing the Giants in the past, and this is certainly a team that is ripe for a ripping. However, the Giants all-time leading rusher sees some hope for this 0-2 team.

What we’ve learned from the NFL through Week 2

I can describe what I haven’t seen in two weeks of the NFL in a single word; DEFENSE. I have never seen so many wide open receivers in every game I watched. That included the Vikings, the Patriots, the Packers, the Chargers, the Raiders, and the Champion Seahawks.  I knew the NFL had become an offensive league, but Sunday’s lack of defensive play was appalling. There were other...

Concerning the Giants defense

(Credit: I had high hopes for the Big Blue’s defense this year. I honestly thought they would find a way to slow down  Calvin Johnson. I also thought they would fin a way to pressure second-string quarterback Drew Stanton in New York’s home opener.

Stats show Eli Manning isn’t playing nearly as bad as you think

Let’s say you run into a friend of your who hasn’t gotten the chance to see the New York Giants play yet this season.
