Paul Dottino brings a wealth of experience to his job as WFAN’s New York Giants beat reporter, having covered the team in various capacities since 1983 – including a stint as host of the pre- and post-game radio shows on WNEW (1992), WOR (1993-95) and WFAN (1996) and his new role as gameday reporter with the WFAN/Giants Radio Network.
He also handles television play-by-play and sideline duties for the Northeast Conference college football/basketball packages on the Madison Square Garden Network and Fox College Sports and is the radio play-by-play voice for Fairleigh Dickinson University basketball. He’s also called baseball, hockey and boxing. On the print side, he’s filled numerous roles for The Bergen Record sports department since 1983.
Dottino started his broadcasting career at Fordham University’s legendary radio station, WFUV.
Question him all you like. Giants GM Jerry Reese is not one to blink. What of the mass exodus of starters from last year’s team? It’s okay. Thank you for your concern, he says.
Almost, yes, almost. Those of us in the press room almost had a calm and routine day at Giants camp on Monday. Then the rumor mill went into action again.
First-round pick Prince Amukamara explained Sunday that he thinks his left foot got tangled with receiver Duke Calhoun during Saturday night’s practice – and what resulted is the rookie having a fracture that will require surgery.
There’s clearly been a bit of a thawing in the icy contract dispute between the Giants and Osi Umenyiora. Is it enough to get him back on the field?
How much have we learned about Osi Umenyiora and his contract dispute? Not much, other than the Giants said on Thursday that the lineman claims to have a sore knee.
Go ahead and try to track the latest stock market reports, because that’s the kind of training you’d need to make sense out of the ongoing Osi Umenyiora saga at Giants training camp.
Maybe the Eagles have a psychological edge over the Giants. Maybe the Giants were too fatigued to finish the job. Maybe they were overconfident after building a three-touchdown lead. Maybe there were some questionable coaching decisions. Or maybe Michael Vick really is THAT good.
If timing really is everything, the Giants could not have picked a better time to get healthy.
The Giants delivered exactly what the doctor ordered in thumping the Washington Redskins, 31-7, to keep pace with the rest of the postseason contenders in the NFC.
Obviously, the Giants are auditioning for the latest edition of Football Follies because they’ve put together a rather impressive collection of bloopers this season – with each reel being almost more unbelievable than the previous one.
The Giants are operating at much less than full strength, as they get into the heart of their divisional schedule while heading to Philadelphia Sunday night.
This was a total team effort by the Giants – a study in mediocrity that left them with what they deserved against a desperate rival that raised its play enough times to make a difference.
How one-sided was this one? Think of what the Indianapolis Colts did to the Giants in Week 2. Ok, so you get the idea. Only this time the road team did the damage.
This is getting ridiculous. The Giants were so dominant in their 41-35 road victory over the Dallas Cowboys that they were able to overcome five turnovers, six penalties and a 20-7 second-quarter deficit.
You can thank NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for making the Giants wait seven weeks before playing a divisional rival, even though there’s no stopping the intensity level of tonight’s NFC East match-up in Dallas.
