For the first time this season, the Giants are going to be able to watch the videotapes of a game and have something to smile about.
The winless Giants have had about a million things go wrong for them this season, including an inability to keep anyone healthy in their backfield.
The New York Giants have a pretty good hunch what to expect from Minnesota with newcomer Josh Freeman taking over at quarterback for the struggling Vikings.
The New York Giants (0-6) quest for their first victory of the regular season continues on Monday night, as the team plays host to the Minnesota Vikings (1-4) at the Meadowlands. New York has had a solid ten days off after their 27-21 defeat to the hands of the Chicago Bears, but the time off may not have helped their injury situation. The Vikings got run out of their own building on Sunday, losing 35-10 to the Carolina Panthers, and have designated recently signed quarterback Josh Freeman as their starter against the G-men.
Although you may not think it’s possible, the Giants really are not the worst team in the NFL — despite their 0-6 record.
“I’m coming in with an open heart and open mind,” Hillis said, “and I’m looking to do whatever the coaching staff needs me to do to help this team win.”
The 27-year-old has played for the Broncos, Browns, Chiefs and Buccaneers. Hillis was active for just one game for the Bucs in 2013 — he didn’t have any carries or catches — before being released on September 21.
With only one halfback healthy, the Giants are holding some open tryouts on Tuesday in an effort to add some depth — and maybe, just maybe, catch lightning in a bottle.
With his New England Patriots facing a pivotal game in an NFL stadium where opponents rarely win, Tom Brady showed off a different side.
Chances are you are one of many fantasy owners who are nervously wondering if or when their supposed first round stud will cease to be a fantasy dud…
It has happened to ALL of us. Every single fantasy football owner EVER has add/dropped or traded for a player whom they thought, based on early statistical success, would help carry their team to the Fantasy Football League Championship.
