As I mentioned, Chris Snee wasn’t the only member of his family on hand at the NFL Shop pop-up store in Manhattan. He was joined by his wife, Kate. You may have heard that she also happens to be the daughter of one Tom Coughlin.
After the Super Bowl XLVI win, Coughlin was very expressive of how much the win meant to him and how much he enjoyed seeing it through the eyes of his grown children... » more
Forget Tebowmania. It’s time for some InsanitSnee!
Yes, I caught up with Chris Snee at an event to open the NFL pop-up store on 41st and Sixth in Manhattan today. The store will be there for the month of April (it officially opens to the public on Monday) and will close after the draft at the end of the month. Chris and his wife Kate were on hand to browse and do some shopping. A few nuggets... » more
Devin Thomas, whose tenure with the Giants will be remembered mostly for his recovering two fumbles in punt coverage against the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bears as a free agent wide receiver.
Thomas spent parts of two seasons with the Giants. He was brought in late in 2010 when the team was losing receivers to injuries and immediately made a... » more
There’s apparently another gold rush in California as two Giants free agents have headed west to join the 49ers. Brandon Jacobs, who was released by the Giants earlier this month, is the latest to agree to as-yet-undisclosed terms with the team that the Giants beat in the NFC Championship Game. He joins wide receiver Mario Manningham, who signed with the 49ers last week.
Jacobs’ agreement... » more
The Cowboys may have about 10 million reasons to be ticked off at the Giants, and none of them involve their NFC East rivalry. Giants owner John Mara is on the NFL’s management council, the same body that punished the Cowboys and Redskins for being naughty during the uncapped season and took away $10 million of cap space from the Cowboys. Mara even said earlier this week that the punishment was... » more
The last time an NFL game was played on a Wednesday was in 1948 when the Rams beat the Lions, 44-7. That will change on Sept. 5 when the Giants host the Cowboys in the NFL opener.
It will be the first time the Giants play on a Wednesday in nearly 78 years. They are also 2-0 all-time in regular-season openers played on Wednesdays.
Here are the five games that the Giants played in the... » more
We knew the where and the when. Now we know the who.
The Giants will open the 2012 regular season by hosting the Cowboys on Sept. 5, the NFL announced on Tuesday from the league meetings in Florida. As has become a tradition, the defending Super Bowl champion opens the following season with a home game to start kickoff weekend. This time, though, the game was moved from the usual Thursday... » more
I was a little busy Tebowing today, but I want to get you caught up on a few happenings in the world of the Giants.
First of all, the team was awarded one compensatory draft pick, and it’s a good one. They’ll make the 131st selection in the fourth round, it was announced today. That’s a really nice pick for a comp pick and in the fourth round you can usually find a player.
As for one... » more
Three of New York’s high-profile quarterbacks – Eli Manning, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow -- are on a long list of NFL players suing trading card manufacturer Upper Deck for unpaid royalties and autograph fees.
The NFL Players Association filed the lawsuit on behalf of over 235 players seeking $1.5 million, most of which ($1.25 million) is for the autographs. The player who is owed the most,... » more
For some reason, the Giants aren’t getting as much attention for signing a backup quarterback as other teams have this week. Oh well.
David Carr, who had agreed to terms with the Giants already, swung by the Timex Performance Center today for a physical and to ink his one-year deal to be Eli Manning’s backup. It’s a thankless job since Manning plays just about all the time – he’s never missed... » more
