Jets fans need to buckle up, because once free agency officially begins at 4 p.m. on Tuesday there’s no telling how different the team will look in a relatively short period of time.
The impending free-agent wideout told ESPN that he could be a team’s “missing link,” specifically mentioning quarterbacks in Indy, Carolina and San Diego.
Twenty-seven free agents of all types and a 7-9 record just doesn’t add up. And bad math adds up to a lot of pink slips, even if it means a pile of green paper at the other end for the dearly departed.
You have to admire Cruz for his willingness to subject himself to the rigors of backfield work, even if it’s just for the sake of gimmickry. But there’s no way the kid should play even a snap at running back.
The 26-year-old is set to become a free agent in a few weeks, and there’s a very good possibility that he’ll sign with another team.
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.
The New York Giants limped past the lifeless Washington Redskins 20-6 in the rainy Meadowlands. New York lost quarterback Eli Manning to an ankle injury late in the first half, but rode two Jerrel Jernigan touchdowns to the victory. The loss likely ends the Mike Shanahan-era in Washington.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning hurt his left ankle late in the first half against the Washington Redskins. He will not return.
Giants head coach Tom Coughlin refused to address questions about his future.
The Giants lost quarterback Eli Manning (ankle), receivers Rueben Randle (knee), Hakeem Nicks (ankle) and offensive tackle Will Beatty (broken leg) in the regular-season finale.
New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz expects to recover from knee surgery in time to take part in offseason workouts in the spring.
Cruz injured his left knee and suffered a concussion in Sunday’s loss to Seattle. He underwent an arthroscopic debridement of the knee on Thursday afternoon.
The Seattle Seahawks came to the Big Apple looking to maintain its position as the top seed in the NFC playoff hunt. The New York Giants had very little to play for, since they were eliminated from playoff contention last week. Seattle dominated New York defensively and shut out the G-men, 23-0, in a lackluster affair at MetLife Stadium.
Tom Coughlin has had enough with the Giants’ offense. “Pathetic” was the word Coughlin used after the Giants (5-9) were limited to 181 total yards on Sunday and were shut out by the Seahawks.
To say that the New York Giants have had an inconsistent season is to be kind. In fact, at times, New York has performed downright poorly, as penalties and poor execution have plagued the G-men all year. Not surprisingly, these same themes reared their ugly head as Big Blue fell to the San Diego Chargers 37-14 on Sunday. Coupled with wins by the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers, the loss dropped New York out of playoff contention.
