We’ve already counted down the best local players from No. 99 to No. 80. Now let’s try our luck in the 70s.
Snee retired Monday after 10 seasons on New York’s offensive line. Now it’s a matter of when, not if, his name will be added alongside the franchise greats.
“I’m honored to be called a Giant, and will forever be so,” Snee told WFAN radio shortly after the announcement. “This was a decision I had to make.”
Don’t kid yourself. If this O-line doesn’t get it together, whatever improvements were made to the rest of the roster will go for naught.
Baas played three games last season because of knee and neck injuries. The Giants will save more than $1.75 million in salary-cap space by cutting him.
The New York Giants missed the playoffs for the second year in a row, compiling a 7-9 record in 2013. It was only the second losing record under the leadership of Tom Coughlin as Giants head coach, who took command of the team in 2004. As the franchise’s leadership met the media after the final game of the season, one question was seemingly answered, while several other questions remained unanswered.
He has a patella tendon injury that he sustained Sunday in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Cordle joins fellow offensive linemen Chris Snee and David Baas on injured reserve.
While Rex Ryan continues to thwart the ever-growing (and ever-silly) notion that Matt Simms is some kind of answer to the Jets’ quarterback question, we turn now to the Giants and their problems.
The offensive line has stabilized. The running game is finally making strides, and Manning and his receivers are using quick, short passes to take what defenses offer instead of forcing plays over the top.
After spending the last 10 weeks on recallable injured reserve with a second broken leg in less than a year, all Brown cares about is playing against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
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.
Veteran guard Chris Snee has been placed on injured reserve by the New York Giants and is out for the rest of the season because of an injured hip.
The Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants are each desperate for a victory on Sunday, so any advantage can prove helpful. With that in mind, this week’s injury report hands a decided advantage to the Eagles, which shows only two players on it. Meanwhile, the New York Giants had eight players who did not practice, in addition to the pending trade of Jon Beason to work with heading into week five.
Veteran lineman David Diehl will be starting at right guard for the Giants (0-4) on Sunday when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles (1-3).
How much wiggle room do the Giants have? Not much when you are 0-3, but at least the NFC East does not appear to be nearly as strong as it was expected to be.
