The New York Giants (4-9) hoped to get a mini-win streak started after last week’s demolition of the Tennessee Titans in Nashville last week. This week, the dysfunctional Washington Redskins (3-10) came to town, fresh off a shutout loss to the St. Louis Rams and a full blown quarterback contriversy to boot.
Think back to Week 4. It was a long time ago and one of the highlights of the Giants’ season.
“Yeah, if I can stay here, I would love to be a Giant for life,” the defensive end told reporters on Wednesday. “I don’t know what the future has.”
As the New York Giants head toward another season without a sniff of the NFL playoffs, major changes appear to be on the way. What is in store for Big Blue’s defensive unit next year?
The New York Giants (4-9) were finally able to shake the dry spell that saw the team drop its last seven contests. After last week’s disappointment against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Big Blue kept the pedal to the metal in the 36-7 win over the hapless Tennessee Titans (2-12).
The Giants had gone so long between wins they had started dreaming of what it might feel like. After beating the woeful Titans, they don’t need to dream anymore.
Rock bottom? Maybe so, although the way things have gone for the Giants this season…
You know your season has gone to the dogs when you can’t find an answer to a bunch of young Jacksonville cats.
Antrel Rolle didn’t try and avoid what was an obvious description after the Giants watched Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks run wild on Sunday.
His comments followed safety Antrel Rolle’s plea to teammates earlier this week on WFAN radio. While Rolle spoke of “passion,” JPP questioned his team’s pulse.
The New York Giants have a philosophy of not negotiating contracts during the season. Why this unwritten rule remains in place is anyone’s guess. But after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers extended defensive lineman Gerald McCoy this week, the Giants ought to get to work on a Jason Pierre-Paul extension, before it’s too late.
The New York Football Giants (3-4) entered their bye week coming off of two straight losses to division opponents and being outscored 58-21 in the process. Because of the hot starts by both the Dallas Cowboys (6-1) and Philadelphia Eagles (5-1), the G-men have very slim hope to be able to win the division.
Unless the Giants can find at least two wins in the next four games against Indianapolis, Seattle, San Francisco and Dallas, their collective gooses will be fricasseed for a third straight season.
“We’re more than capable (of winning out),” the captain of the defense told Roberts. “This is a good football team that we have.
JPP has a message for anyone ready to give up on the Giants as they head into a bye week off disappointing losses to the Eagles and Cowboys. It’s simple: Don’t write off Big Blue.
