New York Giants
It’s a shame there won’t be more on the line when Eli Manning and the Giants take on Philip Rivers and the Chargers 10 years later.
As the New York Football Giants head into the last quarter of their regular season, the team’s playoff hopes are hanging by a thread. Since the Giants are missing Jason Pierre-Paul again this week, New York will look toward the invigorated Justin Tuck to anchor the pass rush. Their opponent, the San Diego Chargers, are facing a couple of injuries that could affect their line-up.
Giants linebacker Jon Beason could be in for a huge payday. He’s helped hold the Giants’ defense together.
Eli Manning doesn’t feel comfortable talking about why he and his family didn’t want him to play in San Diego in 2004. It’s in the past, and he’ll keep it there.
The Giants’ defensive line, like much of the rest of the 5-7 squad, has grown old and injured in the blink of an eye, and there appears little help in sight.
Wonder what Tim Tebow thinks of this. And Kellen Clemens. Mark Sanchez, too. Maybe, in Mississippi, Brett Favre is tracking the Jets quarterback situation and wondering, Can it really be this bad?
Antrel Rolle told “Joe and Evan” that teammate Justin Tuck “had the eye of the tiger” in Sunday’s victory over the Redskins.
“Yes, I would love to be a New York Giant. But we’re gonna sit down and talk about it at the end of the year, and approach it just like the Giants will — as a business.”
The playoffs are likely a long shot for the Giants, but Eli Manning says his team will play like it has a chance right up until the moment the math says otherwise.
We are giving out three defensive game balls for the first time ever. How can you leave out Justin Tuck with a career-high four sacks or Jon Beason for his 17 tackles or Will Hill for stealing the ball from Pierre Garcon on fourth down at the Giants 49 with 1:19 left?
The Giants are soldiering on with postseason hopes alive in December, having won five of six, while the Washington Redskins are officially going nowhere.
Coach Tom Coughlin announced after practice Friday that backup running back Brandon Jacobs and cornerback Corey Webster also will miss the game.
Washington coach Mike Shanahan already has thrown down the gauntlet in threatening some of his players’ future employment.
Sheila Mara, the daughter of late Giants owner Wellington Mara, missed a “do not enter” sign and collided head-on with a taxi cab, police said.
He has a patella tendon injury that he sustained Sunday in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Cordle joins fellow offensive linemen Chris Snee and David Baas on injured reserve.
