When the Giants traded for Keith Rivers, it was probably with an eye towards games like this one against Michael Vick. The athletic linebacker would give the Giants more speed on the field and allow them to keep better tabs on Vick and RG3 and the other mobile passers they will face.
But it looks like Rivers won’t play on Sunday against the Eagles. He missed a second straight practice with... » more
Usually when something like this happens with a camera, Allen Funt is there to pop out and say it’s all a joke. This time, there’s no joke.
Antrel Rolle, who was limited in Wednesday’s practice and was seen limping in the locker room afterwards, was not on the field while the Giants practiced on Thursday. Rolle banged his left knee against a camera on the sideline while running after a pass... » more
Now that the regular officials are returning to work, the Giants have new concerns about the way their game against the Eagles will be called.
“It’s still going to be an issue when the real guys come back,” Justin Tuck said yesterday when a deal to end the NFL’s lockout of its officials seemed close. “They are going to be rusty. They haven’t had a preseason to practice their craft. It would... » more
Ahmad Bradshaw will start at running back for the Giants. Andre Brown will get his share of plays, too. But how will it all balance out?
“At this point in time, it’ll be according to however we plan to use them,” Tom Coughlin said (without elaborating on said plan). “Naturally, we reserve the right (to go with) who has the hot hand. So many times, that’s been Ahmad that’s been in, and certainly... » more
Justin Tuck had a lot to say to the media yesterday on topics ranging from the replacement officials to the Osi Umenyiora-LeSean McCoy feud to the upcoming rivalry game with the Eagles. But the most important things he said yesterday were not to the media and not about football.
Tuck addressed a room full of middle schoolers from New York and New Jersey at the Manhattan headquarters of Scholastic... » more
Ahmad Bradshaw may be returning to the field.
After a day at the Hospital for Special Surgery where Tom Coughlin said Bradshaw was being evaluated with other players with hopes for “that element that when they come back they’ve been cleared to go,” Bradshaw posted this comment on his Twitter account just a little while ago:
“Great news! Thanks everyone for ur thoughts and prayers. But... » more
Tom Coughlin declined to answer any Eagles questions on Monday, saying he would talk about the upcoming opponent on Wednesday. Perhaps he’s just waiting for them to name a starting quarterback.
The Giants returned to work from their weekend off to find that the Eagles are at least considering a change at quarterback. Andy Reid dropped a two-sentence bombshell on Monday when asked about the... » more
Prince Amukamara was very happy after last night’s game. Not because the Giants won. Not because he played. Not even because he played, played well, and the Giants won. It was because it was the third game of the season and that means that, according to the unwritten laws of the locker room, he is no longer a rookie.
You’ll recall last month when we were all learning about the traditions and... » more
Cam Newton said after Thursday’s game that it wasn’t the Giants defense that caused the Panthers’ offense to struggle and score only one touchdown and throw three interception.
“It’s nothing that they did,” the Carolina quarterback said. “It was all on us … It wasn’t more of what they did. It was more of what we didn’t do.”
To which the Giants expressed their most sincere appreciation.
“Thank... » more
