T-Rock's Take on the Giants
NEW ORLEANS -- Michael Strahan could be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, and two of his most prized pupils believe that’s where he belongs.
“Is that even a question if he’s going to get in?” Osi Umenyiora asked this week. “He better get in or there’s going to be some furniture moving.”
Justin Tuck was similarly certain.
“If (his name) is not called, it will...Read more »
NEW ORLEANS -- When I look back on the Giants’ season, there’s one play that always sticks out to me. It was a deep post pass from Eli Manning to Hakeem Nicks in the Atlanta game at the end of the first quarter.
The Giants had fallen behind 14-0 and on a first-and-10 from the 20, Eli threw a bomb down the middle and it looked like Nicks, who had gotten behind the coverage, was going to be...Read more »
New Orleans – John and Jim Harbaugh used to share a bedroom. On Friday they’ll share a press conference. But on Thursday they shared a practice field.
Because the Ravens wanted to move indoors and off the baseball field at Tulane where they had practiced previously, the two teams shared the Saints’ practice facility and their workouts on Thursday overlapped for about 10 minutes separated only...Read more »
This is Victor Cruz’s second trip to the Super Bowl, and it’s decidedly different from his first.
That came last year when he was not only a participant but one of its stars. He was mobbed by reporters each day during media availability, had his image plastered around Indianapolis, and even had Madonna dance his famous salsa a few days before he performed it himself after a touchdown against...Read more »
Ray Lewis’ leadership, mentoring and guidance are propelling the Ravens towards this year’s Super Bowl. But it turns out that the soon-to-be-retired, soon-after-to-be-enshrined linebacker also had a big hand in helping the Giants to win last year’s Super Bowl.
When Antrel Rolle was unhappy with his role on the Giants in his first year with the team in 2010, the player he called to talk to...Read more »
The Giants won’t be in the Super Bowl, but that doesn’t mean they won’t be in the Super Bowl spirit!
All this week they’ll be guest anchoring on FOX 5’s “Good Day New York,” working alongside Duke Castiglione to deliver the sports and banter with the morning crew.
The lineup starts tomorrow morning and includes:
Chris Canty on Monday Steve Weatherford on Tuesday Henry “Hump Day”...Read more »
The Giants already knew who they would be playing in 2013. Now they know who’ll be coaching those teams.
With all eight coaching vacancies filled, the Giants will face four new head coaches next season, although one of them will be quite familiar. Three of the four are first-time NFL headmasters. The new coaches:
Chip Kelly of the Eagles (twice)
Marc Trestman of the Bears
Mike...Read more »
Chris Snee has played nine grueling NFL seasons with the Giants. He’s starting to consider how much longer he will come back for the punishment.
“It started after the Super Bowl last year,” he told Giants.com today after a workout at the team’s facility. “That was when I physically felt shot. I said, ‘If I went through that again, I would be done.’ This year, it was just the hip (injury that...Read more »
When Spencer Paysinger heard the news that Chip Kelly was coming to the NFL, he had mixed emotions. On one hand he was very happy for his former college coach for whom he spent four years playing at Oregon. On the other hand …
“To have somebody that is well-versed in that whole thing (coming to the NFL) is going to be crazy,” Paysinger told Newsday in a phone interview on Wednesday evening....Read more »
Eli Manning shut it down. He figured his season was over and there was no need to keep his throwing arm in game shape, so he’s gone the last few weeks without even lobbing a pass.
Now he’s got to get warmed up in a hurry. Manning, a second alternate, will be traveling to Hawaii next week to play in the Jan. 27 Pro Bowl. He’s replacing Aaron Rodgers, who pulled out with injuries.
“I should...Read more »
