Silverman: Giants Must Continue Turnaround Against Pack, 3rd-String QB

Somehow, some way, the Giants are alive and kicking. All they have to do is take down a third-string quarterback, and they will have their opportunity.

Silverman: Vigneault Has Rangers Cruising In The Right Direction

The Rangers have turned their miserable start around, but they must keep hitting the accelerator hard. If they do, their win over the Penguins will not be a fluke. It will be the jumping off point of a team that is going to be in contention for the Eastern Conference title for the remainder of the season.

Silverman: Bearded BoSox Provide Cashman With Roadmap For Future

The Yankees need hard-working, healthy bodies; players who can get on base, field their positions and run the bases. That’s what it will take to get this team back in contention, along with help on the pitching front.

Silverman: Aggressive Jets’ Defense May Earn Rex A Stay Of Execution

If the defense can continue to give a solid account of itself, the team will have a chance to improve and Ryan may just put a crimp in Idzik’s offseason plans to hire a new head coach.

Silverman: Fixing The World Series Must Be MLB’s Priority

It seems that the World Series has shrunk and shriveled over the years to the point where it is a folksy little event to all except those associated with the two teams participating.

Silverman: Freeman’s Lack Of Familiarity With Vikings Should Give Giants 1st Win

If the Giants can limit their own turnovers this week — something they have not been able to do — they should finally be able to pick up their first win of the year.

Silverman: Crucial 3-Game Stretch Will Almost Certainly Define Jets’ Season

Forget the Atlanta and Pittsburgh games; the Jets are beginning a gauntlet against the NFL’s heavy hitters. And how they do will determine if the play meaningful games in December,

Silverman: Giants, Rangers Playing Game Of ‘Who’s Worse?’

It’s not even Halloween and the Giants and Rangers are both frightful messes. The trick is on New York sports fans. Both teams started the season with high hopes. Both appear to be on a direct line to disaster.

Silverman: Hey Giants, Have Hope Because Bears Are Teetering On The Edge

The Chicago Bears have lost back-to-back games to the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints, and if they lose Thursday night to the winless Giants, a full-fledged panic will envelop the City of Broad Shoulders.

Silverman: Horrid Start Does Not Mean The Giants Are Doomed

This losing streak has to end sometime for the New York Giants, and if this is the week, it would not be impossible for the Giants to get back in the putrid NFC East race.

Silverman: Slow Start Likely, But Don’t Count Out Rangers Being Solid

The New York Rangers are going to face a major handicap this year. They are not going to be able to follow the NHL’s prescribed formula for securing a playoff spot and one of the top seeds in Stanley Cup playoffs.

Silverman: Aggressive Jets Ignoring Expectations And Finding A Way

There are good things happening right now as Smith is making progress, Powell has some chops as a running back and the defense is playing the way a Ryan defense is supposed to.

Silverman: Forget That It’s The Preseason, Rangers-Tortorella Is Must-See TV
