Silverman: Giants Set To Embark On A Dangerous Journey

Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning clearly must have Thursday night’s game. Because once they get done with the Redskins, they face a series of challenges that have the potential to send them to another season of despair.

When the Jets and Bears get together Monday night at MetLife Stadium, these two imperfect teams should provide an excellent measuring stick for each other.

Silverman: Where’s The Leadership? And Where The Heck Is Goodell?

A week ago, it seemed the world was angry at Roger Goodell because he had botched the Ray Rice decision. That was just the tip of the iceberg.

Silverman: Goodell’s Incompetence Overshadows His Desire To Do Good

There is blood in the water and the sharks are circling. Roger Goodell probably knows that there can’t be a positive outcome to the Ray Rice video scenario, and that’s a shame.

These three non-conference games should serve as a barometer for what can be expected throughout the rest of the season.

Silverman: Giants Have An Opportunity To Make A Huge Statement

A loss in the opening week of the season can be a lot more important for teams that are not established. The Giants should have an opportunity to learn a bit more about their identity in their opener tonight against Detroit.

Thursday Night Football Fantasy Starters: Rodgers, Wilson And Harvin Are Must Plays

Fantasy football players are also ready to go all-in on Thursday night. Finding favorable matchups in the first game on the schedule each week gives a player a big edge going into Sunday.

Silverman: NFL Season Preview — Predicting Division Winners And Super Bowl

The Seattle Seahawks are the class of the NFL, and they are poised to become the NFL’s first repeat Super Bowl champions since the New England Patriots accomplished the feat following the 2004 season.

Silverman: Goodell Not Qualified To Mete Out NFL Justice On His Own

Roger Goodell is not a judge, nor is he a trained lawyer. How can he think that his own personal morals are enough for him to do a proper job of policing the NFL?

Silverman: Seahawks, 49ers Prove That Old-School Football Can Still Dominate

These two teams will almost certainly get off to the same kind of starts that they got off to last year. In addition to being very talented, both are extremely physical and tough.

Silverman: Weak Division Is Giants’ Best Hope For Bounce-Back Season

The Giants have one thing they can feel very good about. It’s the division they call home, the NFC East.

Silverman: Off-Key Ditka Needs To Zip It On The Redskins’ Name Debate

Mike Ditka has his bust in the Pro Football Hall of Fame and he is one of the most colorful individuals in the game’s legacy. But that doesn’t mean that anyone should listen to Ditka when he decides to bloviate.
