Dottino: Giants GM Jerry Reese Speaks His Piece

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.

Dottino: The Saga Of The Giants’ Steve Smith

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.

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?

Dottino: Prince Amukamara In, Osi Umenyiora Still Out For Giants

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.

Dottino: Latest On The Giants’ Osi Umenyiora Saga

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.

Giants Blog: Giant Collapse

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.

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.

Giants Blog: Football Follies In Philadelphia

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.

Giants Blog: Lack Of Energy

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.

Giants Blog: Super In Seattle

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.

Giants Blog: Dominant In Dallas

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.

Dallas Cowboys vs. NY Giants

Giants Blog: Giants-Cowboys Preview

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.
