For a franchise that considers itself a model NFL team, the New York Football Giants seem likely to experience a third straight season without a playoff berth. In the face of a 7-9 season last year, the front office promised major changes, but those changes have fallen far short of expectations.
With the playoffs in doubt again, GM Jerry Reese wants to see more — and Moore — from the Giants when they return from the bye on Monday night.
Reese wants the offense and defense to be more aggressive in the final nine games, and feels the NFC East will tighten up before the season ends. The Giants will be in that race, he said.
Veteran New York Giants’ safety Antrel Rolle finds himself in the final year of a five-year, $37 million contract he signed with the team before 2010. At 31 years old, Rolle remains not only the heart and soul of New York’s defense, he is the conscience of the franchise as well.
My premise then and now is simple. The Giants are stable, a fixed totem pole where no one is jostling for all the credit or the glory. The Jets, by contrast, have fatal holes in their hierarchy.
The Detroit Lions and the New York Giants are polar opposites when comparing NFL franchises.
A day after the Jets were doused by members of the Cortlandville Fire Department, the Giants took their turns answering the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, albeit in a bit more subtle fashion.
To prepare you for the upcoming campaign, WFAN host Mike Francesa is broadcasting live from Giants camp on Tuesday afternoon.
The key to the Giants’ 2014 season could very well hinge on how well they adapt to the new West Coast offense being installed by new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo.
The Giants had serious issues on offense last season. Now they have new coordinator in Ben McAdoo — and a rookie receiver with the skills to bust loose every time he touches the ball.
Manziel is the wild card in this year’s NFL Draft, with some analysts pegging him as a top-5 pick, while others have the Texas A&M quarterback slipping totally out of the first round.
Giants general manager Jerry Reese knew he had plenty of work to do, and he plugged a ton of holes in free agency. Now comes the hard part — the NFL Draft.
Fortunately for New York, which picks 12th, this draft is so deep that whomever Reese grabs should be a potential starter from Day 1. Here’s a look at where the Giants might go in the draft.
The Giants revamped their secondary earlier this offseason through free agency, but will remain in the corner of one of their own as well.
It’s one thing to demand rebound seasons from Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Jason Pierre-Paul, but the Giants must have a powerful draft class if they are going to get back to the postseason.
