“Talk is cheap,” Coughlin said. “Play the game. I don’t see anything that gets accomplished by the verbalization part of it. We’ve never been a team that has been one to provide bulletin-board material.”
Hatcher sported fake blood on his face and wrote the following caption next to his picture: “They say blood would be shed. Just finished eating a giant. #actionspeaklouderthanwords.”
The Cowboys started the Giants’ season-opening nightmare on a warm night in September and they pretty much ended New York’s dream of a miracle comeback on a cold blustery night in November.
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.
While the Giants’ defense has been the catalyst in their amazing comeback from a dismal 0-6 start, there were concerns after last week’s win over Green Bay.
Who saw this Giants season coming? It defies some sort of football logic that Jon Beason, Terrell Thomas and Andre Brown are big reasons Big Blue still has a pulse.
Andre Brown set career highs with 30 carries and 115 yards while running for the go-ahead 1-yard TD late in the third quarter — and he wasn’t activated until this past week.
You get the idea that nothing is ever going to be pretty in this Giants season. Then again, division races aren’t decided on looks and personality. Wins are all that count.
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.
The New York Football Giants had their worst start since 1976, and the team did not get its first win until Week 7 of the regular season. After beating the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, the G-men went down to Philadelphia and defeated the Eagles 15-7 to complete their first half at 2-6. With eight games remaining, including three with division rivals, Dallas and Washington, New York still has eyes on a division title. Here are five players who will need to be productive in order for the Giants to compete.
Two wins do not make a playoff contender, unless you’re in the NFC East. Despite opening the season with six straight losses, the Giants remarkably are still in the playoff hunt heading into their bye week.
Oh, the possibilities of what might have been had the Giants received similar efforts from the get-go. Instead, they head into the bye at 2-6, thinking about how they might scrape their way to .500.
The New York Football Giants seek to extend their winning streak to a modest two games as the team faces the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. The Giants fluid offensive line situation changed again this week, after starting center David Baas was placed on season ending injured reserve. The Eagles enter the contest relatively healthy, although last week’s starting quarterback, Nick Foles, is likely out with a concussion.
Although you may not think it’s possible, the Giants really are not the worst team in the NFL — despite their 0-6 record.
Injuries have been mounting for the 0-5 New York Giants; it seems that each game a different starter goes down with a serious injury. This week starting running back David Wilson has been ruled out with a neck injury. For the Bears, starting cornerback Charles Tillman may miss Thursday’s game with a knee injury, and linebacker Lance Briggs is nursing injuries to his foot and hip. Both Tillman and Briggs will be game-time decisions for the Bears.
