Mailbag: Giants a legit contender, matchup vs Falcons.

Hi Alex, the Giants have looked very good, winning their last two games after an 0-2 start. Eli Manning was terrific last week with four touchdowns and a rushing touchdown.

Three Studs and Two Duds for the New York Giants Offense

Dud number 1: Victor CruzOnce known as the security blanket for Eli Manning, Victor Cruz has been anything but reliable this season. Cruz has five dropped passes, tied for most in the league with Tampa Bay Buccaneer Vincent Jackson. The number is far too high. His worst game was against the Cardinals Week 2, where a third down drop lead to a Ted Ginn game winning punt return for...

New York Giants shut out of NFL offensive awards (and disappointments) so far

There’s an old saying in the NFL: Teams can’t win a championship in September, but they certainly can lose one. Translation? Getting off to a good start doesn’t ensure late-season success, but struggling out of the gates almost guarantees that a team won’t be playing in January. That’s why taking a moment to look at the state of the NFL one-fourth of the way through the...

Giants Release WR Mario Manningham From I.R.

Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports is reporting that the Giants are releasing veteran WR Mario Manningham from injured reserve on Tuesday. The Giants placed Manningham on season-ending injured reserve a month ago with a calf injury. Teams generally release players from injured reserve once they’re back to full strength, so this shouldn’t come as much of a surprise. Manningham, 28...

Eli on Geno Smith: If fans yell at you, you probably deserve it

Eli Manning is no stranger to the boo birds. The New York Giants quarterback has gone through his fair share of struggles while under center, and subsequently had a good number of unprintable insults hurled his way by the home fans. But despite all of the harassing and heckling Manning has endured, he’s never stooped to the fans’ level and responded, although he certainly empathizes...

Ex-NFL player: Playing hurt is a skill

Life in the NFL is not an easy one, no matter how much financial success stands to be achieved. NFL players rarely feel 100 percent, and it’s safe to assume that the majority of players are battling through some sort of injury or discomfort every single weekend. How you manage that pain and still do your job is a huge factor in how successful you’ll be as a player. In a post...

J.J. Watt Is a Young Michael Strahan, and That Is the Ultimate Compliment

The best thing anyone can say about a young defensive lineman is to call that player a young Michael Strahan. That is J.J. Watt. When I see Watt, it's like going back in time, when a young Strahan entered the NFL, and I was covering the New York Giants beat for the New York Times. We can debate and rank and argue about which defensive linemen in history are the best—and I...

Why Larry Donnell could have a huge year

Larry Donnell is a massive human, and usually when you’re around someone of his size and general mountain-like stature, the assumption is he won’t exactly be nimble. At 6’6” and weighing 265 he should be a lumbering lug, a behemoth who operates on the football field with force, not finesse. But he has plenty of both. We saw that last night repeatedly. Donnell caught three...
