“I didn’t even notice it was down,” Giants quarterback Eli Manning said Wednesday. “I didn’t really notice when it was up, either.”
Prior to the start of the season, way back in July, Giants GM Jerry Reese thought it would be a good idea to put a Super Bowl countdown clock in the Giants locker room…
The Giants (5-8) face questions about their run defense after Ryan Mathews rushed for 103 yards in the Chargers’ 37-14 win Sunday, a game that eliminated New York from playoff contention.
The so-called countdown clock to Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium is apparently in the trash along with the Giants’ season.
Nobody can come close to beating the Seahawks at home and they are going to clinch homefield advantage throughout the playoffs in the next week or two. They are one dominant team.
“We don’t want to see a cold Super Bowl,” the four-time Super Bowl champion told the radio duo. “We don’t want to see what we saw in Philadelphia (this past weekend). What good can come from that?”
A vote on approving football for the Summer Games could take place as early as 2017, with the possibility of the sport joining the Olympics in 2024.
Jacobs finished the season with 238 yards rushing and four touchdowns — most among Giants running backs — and two receptions for 13 yards in seven games.
Pete Carroll is never going to talk about it publicly, but he wants his players to get used to their surroundings in this game because he hopes to return in less than two month when the Super Bowl is contested at MetLife Stadium.
“To be honest with you, I don’t care,” the captain told WFAN radio. “Whoever wins, wins. Whoever wins, they deserve to win. To me, to be honest with you, I don’t care who is the better of the two.”
Giants QB Eli Manning is known to be mellow and unassuming. Heck, even his nickname is “Easy.” But Archie Manning says losing is anything but that for his youngest son.
Maybe the New York Football Giants are not used to playing the role of spoiler, but that’s all they have left after an uninspired loss to the San Diego Chargers signaled the death knell for the team’s 2013 playoff chances. Now the visiting Seattle Seahawks come to town, looking to cement the first overall seed in the NFC, and hopefully a return trip to MetLife Stadium in February.
“We’ve gotta finish this year,” Manning said. “No one knows what’s gonna happen next year, who’s gonna be around or not. That’s the game of football. Things can change quickly.”
“You will be allowed to have food in your car and have drink in your car,” Al Kelly said. “And provided you’re in the boundaries of a single parking space, you’ll be able to eat or drink right next to your car.”
The loud thud you just heard should not come as any surprise. The Giants, who lost any realistic hope of making the playoffs two weeks ago against Dallas, sealed their fate with a dismal 37-14 loss to the Chargers.
