Jerry Reese has placed a calendar in the room to count down the days until Super Bowl XLVIII at MetLife Stadium.
So begins the battle to become football’s first team to reach a Super Bowl played in its own back yard.
A year ago, the New York Giants failed miserably in their bid to get back to the Super Bowl and defend their title. This year, the Giants just want to stay home — and become the first NFL team to play the Super Bowl in their backyard.
After being warned by coach Tom Coughlin that now was not the time to slack off, the New York Giants held their final workout before the start of training camp in late July.
David Diehl is looking to prove that he’s 100% healthy and always feels he has something to prove.
If Cruz doesn’t have a deal in time for an on-time arrival for training camp, he’ll be doing himself and the Giants a disservice.
Cruz remained absent from the team’s voluntary offseason conditioning program on Thursday. Reese had no idea if he’d see the Pro Bowl standout during the program, training camp or even into the season.
The Giants have no one to blame but themselves after the Ravens dismantled the G-Men on Sunday?
He could have beaten up his team over their up-and-down play. Rather he’s told the Giants, who hold a one-game lead in the NFC East at 7-5, they have to win their final four games.
Eli Manning chatted about the Giants’ momentous victory over the Packers with Mike Francesa on Monday.
Eli Manning threw for 249 yards, tossed three touchdowns and — most importantly — didn’t throw an interception.
No one was more pleased with the Giants than Adam Merchant. The 15-year-old fan from Barre, Vt., attended Friday’s practice and Sunday’s game, thanks to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Perhaps the only thing missing from this game are the stakes – it’s only the sixth week of the regular season, although it’s very possible the winner will be able to call upon this result to help gain a tiebreaker advantage for the playoffs.
Eli Manning chatted with Mike Francesa about the Giants’ win over the Browns and previewed their big match-up against the 49ers.
Hakeem Nicks remains down, Ramses Barden steps up. Barden goes down, Rueben Randle steps up. It goes like that for the Giants. Not so much for the Jets.
