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.
Perfect? Nah. Pretty? Not that either. But it was a win and the Giants will take it.
It would be difficult for the Giants to lose this one, unless they get sloppy with the ball or careless in drawing penalties.
Co-captain Justin Tuck doesn’t want the Giants to fall into a trap, understanding that last week’s dominant defensive effort in the 17-3 win over the Chicago Bears doesn’t automatically carry over into Houston.
The Giants, playing the type of inspired defense that initiated the chants of “Dee-fense” at Yankee Stadium in the late 1950s, stopped their early-season bleeding with a convincing 17-3 win over the Chicago Bears.
Getting blown out by the defending AFC champion Indianapolis Colts on the road is rough, although it’s got to be easier to digest than returning home and doing nearly everything possible to self-destruct in a 29-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
The Titans have issues of their own, given that quarterback Vince Young got yanked for Kerry Collins during last week’s 19-11 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Didn’t we see this movie before? It could have been The Poseiden Adventure, The Towering Inferno, or Earthquake … or maybe it was the game film from one of the Giants’ losses down the stretch last season?
