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...

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....

No surgery needed for JPP, who says he will 'never shut it down'

Jason Pierre-Paul rushes during a game against the

(Credit: Getty)

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...

Mike Tomlin was fined $100,000 by the NFL for getting too close to the field in last week’s Steelers game against the Ravens. In the preseason, Tom Coughlin was flagged for a 15-yard penalty for a somewhat similar infraction in the game against the Colts.

Here's what Tom Coughlin told Giants.com of his recollections from 50 years ago today:

“I was a senior in high school at Waterloo Central High School. I remember how it started.

Tom Coughlin said he hasn’t talked to Hakeem Nicks about his display of frustration during Sunday’s win over the Packers, and he sure as heck wasn’t going to talk to anyone else about it either.

“That’s something I’m not going to discuss,” the coach said on a conference call on Monday. “Those things will stay inside.”

Nicks was targeted on a pass in the end zone late in the first half...

He returned to the game and wound...

The Giants’ offense had more net rushing yards than passing yards in Sunday’s win over the Raiders, the first time that’s happened in almost three full seasons. Eli Manning said in his WFAN appearance Monday evening that was largely due to the Oakland defense, which was “stubborn” in keeping two safeties back.

“I was itching to throw the ball some more but they were staying back there,” he...
