T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Eli Manning said he’ll play no matter who is blocking for him.
Funny, because Dallas Reynolds said he’ll block no matter who is behind him.
Reynolds, one of the last available pieces of the offensive line who may be pushed into action on Sunday against the Lions and the ferocious front of Ndamukong Suh and Nick Fairley, said he was not surprised that Manning chose to play behind the...Read more »
The Corey Webster Watch ends not with a return to the field but with him being placed on injured reserve and unlikely to ever return to the field, at least with the Giants.
Webster, who played in just four games this season and none since Oct. 27 against the Eagles, is in the final year of his contract. He took a substantial paycut to remain with the team this season, but groin, hip and, lastly,...Read more »
Here’s some good news for Giants fans: Things can’t get worse! At least not in terms of the NFC East standings!
According to the Giants and the Elias Sports Bureau, the Giants will finish in third place in the division no matter what happens in the season’s final two weeks. It may have gone unrecognized at the time on Sunday, but here's the math from the team’s weekly notes:
“If they...Read more »
Phil Simms says Eli Manning and the Giants have hit “rock bottom.”
After Sunday’s 23-0 loss to the Seahawks in which the Giants’ quarterback threw a career-high five interceptions and set the franchise record for most picks in his career, Simms addressed the mess that his former team has become on today’s episode of NFL Monday QB on CBS Sports Network.
“Sometimes you just have to hit...Read more »
Despite the first home shutout since 1995, the first season with two shutouts since 1996, a quarterback on the verge of setting the franchise record for most interceptions in a season and the first losing season since 2004, Tom Coughlin said that he’s sticking with offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride.
Asked if he continues to have faith in his offensive coaches, Coughlin said simply: “Yes....Read more »
Darth Vader? No, it’s just Terrell Thomas.
Although it’s easy to see where the two can be confused, especially on Wednesdays when the Giants cornerback strolls into the locker room wearing a space-age looking triangular mask over his nose and mouth and breathing audibly, just like the Star Wars villain.
What Thomas is actually doing is trying to make his workouts more efficient and wearing...Read more »
Jason Pierre-Paul said he will not “shut it down” this season because of the injured right shoulder that has kept him out of the last two games, but that may just be semantics because the defensive end seems unlikely to play again this season. A second-opinion on the injury showed no need for surgery, only rest, and with just three games remaining there may not be time for him to heal enough to...Read more »
Brandon Jacobs had surgery on his left knee yesterday, as doctors performed a cartilage graft to repair osteoarthritis in the joint. I’m not sure exactly what that entails, but it doesn’t sound like something that 31-year-old running backs bounce back from. It doesn’t seem that Jacobs has made any definite decisions about his future, but his NFL career has most likely come to an end.
This...Read more »
The Giants’ first game as a non-playoff team this season comes against a brash squad from Seattle that is poised to clinch the top seed in the NFC. That could lead to a lopsided score if the Giants aren’t careful.
“The last thing you want to be is embarrassed and this is a team that, if you’re not ready to play, they will embarrass you and laugh about it,” Justin Tuck said on Wednesday, the...Read more »
The Giants began the season believing that they had a dynamic one-two running back punch in Andre Brown and David Wilson. There was even a time in training camp in which the two were listed as co-starters and talk that they might be able to become an NFL rarity: two 1,000-yard rushers from the same backfield. But the season never materialized that way and, as it turned out, neither of them was ever...Read more »
