When I woke up this morning to the headlines that read “Pope Resigns,” there were two thoughts that crossed my mind. The first was I wondered who the Giants would get to replace him, and the second was I wondered why the resignation of a tight ends coach was making such a big splash on national and international news desks.

I have since learned that the Pope in “Pope Resigns” is the actual...

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...

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.
