You could say the Giants’ defensive coordinator didn’t want to thrown any more Fewell on the fire.
Winning the Super Bowl in 2008 was a game that forever will bring a smile to the faces of the Giants and their faithful followers. Losing to the Eagles at the Meadowlands in December is one they will never live down.
According to Howard Balzer of The Sports Xchange, one Rams player — and former Giants linebacker — says Big Blue players are being instructed on faking injuries.
A somewhat miffed Deon Grant denied faking an injury to slow down the St. Louis Rams’ no-huddle offense and give the Giants’ defense time to rest in Monday night’s nationally televised game.
Mistakes cost the St. Louis Rams dearly in their first Monday night appearance since 2006. They’re in part blaming the Giants — and not for Big Blue’s superior play.
The NFL has sent a memo to all 32 teams warning of fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks if the league determines players faked injuries during a game.
Rookie middle linebacker Greg Jones has come a long way in a short time with the Giants. And he’s about to face his toughest test yet.
Give Jerry Reese credit for making two signings that may have barely registered on the odometer Tuesday, yet could go a long way in helping the Giants win some games.
Veteran safety Deon Grant had a chance to sign with a couple of other teams after the free agency period started, and probably could have landed a job where he might have had a shot at starting. Grant turned them down though and waited almost three weeks for the Giants to call.
Veteran safety Deon Grant has re-signed with the Giants. And he comes with a fresh desire to take on the rival Eagles.
Perry Fewell said he limited Phillips’ playing time last season with the former first-round pick coming off microfracture surgery and the Giants having the luxury of having veteran Deon Grant on the roster. That’s not going to happen this season.
Whatever the root cause, Seattle has become known for owning arguably the loudest venue in the NFL. Need a testimonial? Just ask this week’s opponent, the New York Giants.
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.
It would be difficult for the Giants to lose this one, unless they get sloppy with the ball or careless in drawing penalties.
Phillips, who underwent microfracture surgery on his left knee last September, worked with the Giants’ first team Wednesday in preparation for the season opener against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
