Brandon Jacobs said the popular fantasy leagues are a “huge problem” after a Twitter tough guy threatened “ITS OVER FOR YOU AND YO FAMILY” unless he rushed for 50 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
A Connecticut man has been charged with threatening New York Mets players, coaches and executives on Twitter postings.
By its very nature, the media has given even the most modest of users an overinflated sense of self-importance. It has turned the egotistical and self-absorbed athlete into an even larger bigger-than-life entity.
One tweet read, “ON LIFE BRANDON IF YOU DON’T RUSH FOR 50 YARDS AND 2 TOUCHDOWNS TONIGHT ITS OVER FOR YOU AND YO FAMILY N—-.”
The winless Giants have had about a million things go wrong for them this season, including an inability to keep anyone healthy in their backfield.
The New York Giants have a pretty good hunch what to expect from Minnesota with newcomer Josh Freeman taking over at quarterback for the struggling Vikings.
Although you may not think it’s possible, the Giants really are not the worst team in the NFL — despite their 0-6 record.
The 27-year-old has played for the Broncos, Browns, Chiefs and Buccaneers. Hillis was active for just one game for the Bucs in 2013 — he didn’t have any carries or catches — before being released on September 21.
With only one halfback healthy, the Giants are holding some open tryouts on Tuesday in an effort to add some depth — and maybe, just maybe, catch lightning in a bottle.
Tom Coughlin doesn’t have many options at halfback for the winless New York Giants. The choice now is rookie Michael Cox, and that’s it. Yes, Michael Cox.
The Giants’ 0-6 start is the worst for the organization since it lost a franchise-worst nine in a row in 1976, a season that saw coach Bill Arnsparger fired after seven games.
Forget about it. The mission no longer is about saving New York’s playoff hopes, it’s about finding out which pieces need to be part of the new foundation.
It’s a recurring theme for the Giants, as a crucial turnover in the fourth quarter doomed New York. Eli Manning overthrew Brandon Myers, and Tim Jennings intercepted the errant pass to preserve the Bears 27-21 victory over New York. The Giants are 0-6 for only the second time in team history.
For the Giants (0-5), running the ball has been a major challenge. The offensive line has not blocked well, the backs are a step off, and the result has been an average of 56.8 yards.
The New York Giants have the NFL’s worst running game and it doesn’t look like it’s going to improve much this week.
