Every Super Bowl championship team opens the following season with a mission to repeat. So why, then, have teams won back-to-back titles only eight times in the 46-year history of the game?
Hakeem Nicks believes he’ll be ready for the Giants’ season opener and is aiming to make the start of training camp.
With a quick shake of the head, Tom Coughlin officially rejected the notion that Plaxico Burress would somehow ride in on his mud-splattered horse and save the Giants’ receiving corps.
As the Giants again begin the process of sorting out a dilemma among the wide receivers, Victor Cruz and Domenik Hixon will have to provide much-needed stability.
Former Giants’ wide receiver Mario Manningham agreed to a two-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, adding to a talented receiving corps which could lure Peyton Manning.
Contract terms were not immediately available, but Hixon gives the Giants another option if Super Bowl hero Mario Manningham is not re-signed.
There have been so many season-ending injuries in the NFL this season, and complete ACL tears seem to lead this category. By my count, there are already 10 players who are looking on from the sidelines after having ACL surgery.
Clayton, who was released before the season, will take the roster spot vacated by Domenik Hixon, who tore his right anterior cruciate ligament on Monday night.
The storyline this week for the Giants’ trip to Philadelphia is not about their recent woes against the Eagles, but whether Michael Vick will be starting.
Two years. Two torn ACLs. One knee. The news shocked the Giants and their fans, but Domenik Hixon says it’ll just be part of his comeback story.
Dominik Hixon’s circus catch to close the first half of Monday night’s win over the Rams was one for the all-time highlight reel. But it will cost him — and the Giants — dearly.
The New York Giants’ defensive gameplan for the Philadelphia Eagles is going to have a major section on stopping Michael Vick.
Last night the Giants proved they actually could beat a team that they were expected to beat. The formula was simple: Exhibit a tough run defense and make enough plays in the other facets of the game to keep the Rams from making it a game.
The injury woes continue for the Giants. New York added receivers Mario Manningham and Domenik Hixon to their list of hobbled players in Monday night’s 28-16 victory over the St. Louis Rams.
Scoop and score. It’s one of those silly expressions defensive coaches scream at their players. Most times, it’s meaningless — but not for Michael Boley and the Giants on Monday night.
