T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Everybody in the Giants locker room is focused on beating Dallas. They hate Dallas. They want to crush Dallas.
What does Dallas think about that?
“I haven’t really heard anything,” he said.
That would be Dallas Reynolds, the Giants’ backup offensive lineman who was picked up earlier this season when the team was seemingly shuffling its roster a few times each week to keep up with...Read more »
All things considered, Victor Cruz would rather not be in Philadelphia.

They have to do it on Sunday, returning to Lincoln Financial Field. So what makes it so terrible?

Peyton Manning is doing something today that Eli Manning hardly ever does. He’s missing practice with an injury.

Going back to last year when he was with the Eagles, Jenkins is 1-15 in his last 16 games. That lone win came against the Bucs last December. So what can the veteran defensive tackle tell us about how to handle losing?
“You have to make sure it’s not the mindset,” he said. “You don’t...Read more »
