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?
Rueben Randle has caught six touchdown passes in the last six games to take over the team lead. No other Giants receiver has caught a TD in that span.
It’s time. The dominoes have lined up for the Giants, who now have the opportunity to show that they are improved enough to knock them over.
A disappointing 2013 season came to a premature end for New York Giants halfback David Wilson yesterday. The second year player from Virginia Tech was placed on season-ending injured reserve by the G-men, who activated running back Andre Brown from the injured list as well. Meanwhile, the Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden sat out practice with a pulled hamstring and looks unlikely to play on Sunday.
It’s not that the Giants really need a reminder about harassment in the workplace, but Tom Coughlin said he’s not taking any chances.
“Last year, with what I went through, I’m still sticking to my story,” Amukamara said. “That wasn’t bullying at all. That was just fun in the locker room.”
The New York Giants have gotten off to their worst since 1976, yet at 2-6, the team does still have its sights set on an NFC East title. But in order to have a second half turnaround, some players will have to raise their performance, and others will have to maintain their first half pace.
How much will Vick be inclined to run after the injury? Usually, his most dangerous scrambles against the Giants are between the hash marks — which is where Beason now roams.
Coach Tom Coughlin’s team played what may have been its most complete game of the season, albeit with flaws. So let’s hand out some game balls and gassers.
Although you may not think it’s possible, the Giants really are not the worst team in the NFL — despite their 0-6 record.
Coach Tom Coughlin has a battered group heading into Sunday’s game at MetLife Stadium, although he’s not going to offer any excuses. He knows what is at stake and so do his players.
There is little question that the Giants (0-2) should have a big edge going into Carolina (0-2) on Sunday. Let’s take a look at this week’s three key matchups.
Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara isn’t ashamed to say he’s a virgin and abstains from alcohol. In fact, he recently revealed in a magazine interview that some people call him “the black Tim Tebow.”
“Yeah, some people call me the black Tim Tebow,” the 24-year-old told Muscle and Fitness. “I am a virgin. I’m not ashamed to say that.”
Amukamara had to endure the NFL’s strict testing program for players who suffer concussions, so he was unable to practice most of the week.
