Paul Dottino brings a wealth of experience to his job as WFAN’s New York Giants beat reporter, having covered the team in various capacities since 1983 – including a stint as host of the pre- and post-game radio shows on WNEW (1992), WOR (1993-95) and WFAN (1996) and his new role as gameday reporter with the WFAN/Giants Radio Network.
He also handles television play-by-play and sideline duties for the Northeast Conference college football/basketball packages on the Madison Square Garden Network and Fox College Sports and is the radio play-by-play voice for Fairleigh Dickinson University basketball. He’s also called baseball, hockey and boxing. On the print side, he’s filled numerous roles for The Bergen Record sports department since 1983.
Dottino started his broadcasting career at Fordham University’s legendary radio station, WFUV.
Perhaps coach Tom Coughlin ought to force his team to eat apples to keep the doctor away.
A full deck? Really? Well, not quite, but it’s close enough.
The Giants proved they were capable of putting together three significant elements in a 27-24 victory over the Buffalo Bills – and Tom Coughlin’s team will need to repeat these traits on a regular basis if they are to make some waves this season.
So maybe the Giants’ three-game winning streak was a mirage after all.
The Giants already have gone through an emotional roller coaster this season and are coming off two dramatic come-from-behind victories. So where do they go from here?
Sunday’s dramatic come-from-behind victory over the Cardinals may have done a lot for the Giants’ confidence, but it hasn’t solved the season’s biggest mystery – exactly what is this team?
The Giants should not need any reminders of how they bungled their season opener against an inferior Redskins squad – but that’s the danger they face in playing the Cardinals.
Big play after big play after big play. Are you sure that team was the Giants?
No matter how much the Giants try to downplay the trend, it is unmistakable and cannot be ignored. They have lost six consecutive games to the Philadelphia Eagles.
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.
The NFL got this one right. There’s truly no better way than to have the Giants visiting the Redskins near the nation’s capital, bringing together the attention of the fan base from two of the regions that were struck on 9/11.
All of the test scores are in, although we won’t know the full results until Saturday at 4 p.m. Coach Tom Coughlin, his assistants and general manager Jerry Reese must finish grading the players on the Giants’ roster in order to pare the group from 85 to 80 Friday and then to 53 on Saturday.
The Giants are planning to figure out exactly how much depth they have in Thursday night’s preseason finale at New England. Here are the three areas you’ll want to watch as the Giants play this one.
Maybe the Giants ought to consider their loss to the Jets a success, given the way they’ve been riddled with injuries.
One more chance for some while the clock ticks on others. The Giants go into tonight’s annual preseason rivalry against the Jets knowing they’ll have to get down to 80 players by Tuesday at 4 p.m.
