“I think by next February, you’ll see that New Jersey will have recovered a good amount from the storm, and it will be a good way to turn the page from being victims to being survivors and thrivers,” Christie said.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said that next year’s Super Bowl at the stadium used by the Giants and Jets will “have an impact on future decisions for open-air, cold-weather sites.”
On Twitter, some are already dreading what could be for Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium.
Former Denver Broncos executive Ted Sundquist, who interviewed with the Jets for their vacant general manager position, reportedly said that team owner Woody Johnson said that Tim Tebow was “forced” on both him and team president Neil Glat.
Vick and Mornhinweg had issues this past season, according to a report, and neither the four-time Pro Bowler nor the newly-hired offensive coordinator have any desire to continue their working relationship with the Jets.
“I don’t have any regrets,” Tebow said. “I believe everything happens for a reason. I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who holds my future, and in that there is a lot of peace and a lot of comfort.”
Big Blue will hold training camp this summer at the Timex Performance Center, their year-round headquarters at the Meadowlands.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel for Tim and how it went down,” Jets defensive end Mike DeVito told WFAN co-hosts Evan Roberts and Joe Benigno. “… I think (if) you put Tim in there, I think we win games. I really believe that.”
To say that Brown has earned a permanent starting spot in the Giants’ secondary next year is a gross understatement. The man has been a virtual turnover machine since stepping in full time on October 7 against Cleveland.
There is an obvious reason why the Giants went from a Super Bowl champion to a frustrated team that missed the playoffs. It’s consistency.
Eli Manning will square off with brother Peyton in East Rutherford next season when the G-Men host the Denver Broncos. It will be the third time that the brothers face off in the regular season.
“That is what I talked to our team (about) this morning — pride, honor, dignity,” Coughlin said. “Play the game that we are capable of playing, finish the season with a game we can all be proud of.”
The return of Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks to practice on Thursday after missing the previous day with a sprained left knee could only bode well for his on-field rapport with quarterback Eli Manning.
“Your back is against the wall,” Coughlin said. “You don’t have any choice. What we really want is right there for us. There is only one way to get it, and it’s not like playing like we did (on Sunday).”
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that he has not ruled out running back Ahmad Bradshaw from Sunday’s matchup in Atlanta, despite a knee injury.
