New York Giants
Turnovers. Penalties. Missed tackles. Little offense. All the ingredients are in place for Big Blue to miss the playoffs for a third straight season, and even possibly match last season’s 0-6 start.
Boomer and Craig got the Monday morning ball rolling by discussing the plight of the football locals, as Craig concluded that the Giants are ‘a bad football team.’
Ted Ginn Jr. ran 71 yards on a punt return for a go-ahead fourth-quarter touchdown and the Arizona Cardinals beat the error-prone New York Giants 25-14 Sunday.
After posting opposite results in their respective nationally televised games, the teams meet Sunday as the suddenly desperate Giants limp into their home opener.
Torn ligaments in his left ankle seemingly aren’t going to prevent Steve Weatherford from punting for the New York Giants.
The New York Giants head into their home opener relatively healthy, with the exception of punter Steve Weatherford, who suffered torn ligaments in his ankle against Detroit on Monday. For the Arizona Cardinals, starting running back Andre Ellington has not practiced much this week, and quarterback Carson Palmer is questionable with a sore right shoulder.
Only time will tell, but you would think it’s critical for the Giants — particularly the offense — to get off to a good start in their home opener on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
After firing up Jets fans with “(Rexy Go) Beat David Carr” last week, for NFL Week 2 Al Dukes decided to extend an olive branch to those who back Big Blue.

Having the New York Giants’ new West Coast offense struggle in its first regular-season game wasn’t a surprise. Seeing defensive coordinator Perry Fewell’s defense get lit up by the Detroit Lions was shocking.
While some professional athletes have come out in support of Ray Rice, only to do an about-face in the face of public outcry, the Giants’ Mark Herzlich is no such flip-flopper. He doesn’t want Rice anywhere near the team he plays for.
“I am so sick and tired of Eli Manning,” the fan, identified as John Sherman, said in a 32-second video uploaded to YouTube. “He sucks!”
Victor Cruz has been a productive member of the New York Giants’ offense for four years now. In his first three seasons in the league, he averaged over 1,000 yards receiving each year. But as his statistics have declined, so has his patience. Cruz thinks that more targets by Eli Manning will turn into more production for him.
Despite a miserable game in a season-opening 35-14 loss to the Detroit Lions, the two-time Super Bowl MVP was confident Wednesday that he’ll master the team’s new West Coast offense and get the Giants back to their winning ways.
