Cornerbacks Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Prince Amukamara got a little advice from New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin, and it had nothing to do with covering Riley Cooper, Jeremy Maclin or anyone on the Philadelphia Eagles this weekend.
The New York Giants (3-2) travel down the New Jersey Turnpike to meet their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles (4-1), on Sunday night. The G-men dispatched the pesky Atlanta Falcons this past week to move above the .500 mark, while the Birds squeaked by the St, Louis Rams to remain tied with the Dallas Cowboys atop the division.
The Giants (3-2) are back and ready to make a run at the playoffs for the first time in three seasons. And the next two weeks should tell the story.
Three strong teams in the Giants’ division once again. It may be the NFL’s most shocking on-the-field development this season.
The Patriots being all alone in last place means absolutely nothing as far as the rest of the season is concerned. In terms of comedic value, however, it’s fantastic.
It’s hard to argue with him, especially after a solid summer in which he looked anything but a 34-year-old quarterback in the twilight of his career.
Michael Vick is coming back to Philadelphia wearing a different shade of green and a new uniform number.
For an ephemeral, enchanted moment, he was the man, monolith, the king of New York, in the rare thin are of city stardom that all athletes dream of.
Vick, now the backup to Geno Smith with the Jets, is expected to take a few snaps Thursday night when he returns to Philadelphia in the teams’ preseason finale.
Jeremy Maclin is not going to have to be Jerry Rice or Terrell Owens. He merely needs to be a receiver for Nick Foles, while the tight ends help chip in the rest of the production in the passing game.
The Carolina Panthers cut the face of the franchise, Steve Smith, and let the only other three wide receivers on the roster that caught a pass last season leave as free agents. Tight end Greg Olsen is the only proven receiver returning from last season’s squad. Olsen should be Cam Newton’s favorite target this season.
Shots fired. Or not. Mark Sanchez insists he wasn’t taking a swipe at Jets fans when he noted how much “nicer” fans have been in Philadelphia.
