Not to predict that this team will be anywhere near its home locker room in MetLife Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, but the Giants have put on quite a show before following an 0-2 start.
“If he’s man enough to tell you, he should be man enough to put his name on it,” said New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma.
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.
Parcells prefers to remain retired and not replace his protege and friend, Sean Payton, who will serve a season-long suspension for his role in New Orleans’ bounty system.
Would Bill Parcells come out of retirement yet again? “Tuna” said Wednesday that he’d consider doing his friend, Sean Payton, the favor if asked.
Before taking over in St. Louis, Spagnuolo had top 10 defenses with the Giants in the 2007 and 2008 seasons.
Consider Big Blue “Fewell-ed up.”
Mistakes cost the St. Louis Rams dearly in their first Monday night appearance since 2006. They’re in part blaming the Giants — and not for Big Blue’s superior play.
Scoop and score. It’s one of those silly expressions defensive coaches scream at their players. Most times, it’s meaningless — but not for Michael Boley and the Giants on Monday night.
The Giants are no strangers to prime-time. The Rams haven’t been on the big stage since Dec. 11, 2006. Running back Steven Jackson hopes to be a part of it. So do his owners in fantasy football.
Let’s get one thing straight right here and right now: New York can’t afford to give away games if they are going to have any chance at posting a winning record this season.
Steve Spagnuolo made his mark as the defensive coordinator for the Giants before leaving for his first head coaching job with the Rams. He’ll be returning to New York with an injury-ravaged team, much like Big Blue.
Steven Jackson watched from the sideline as the St. Louis Rams ended a 14-game home losing streak. Somehow they did not seem to miss their offensive star.
