Choosing Wrong

Trust me, when they get to Wilt Chamberlain (around minute 9), it gets good.  UltimateNYG good.  Moneyball good. THIS AMERICAN LIFE PODCAST And then they get to Thaler.  We blogged about Thaler 6 years ago.  We read his paper and linked to it prominently back in the day.  We even have a rule about how […]

Five NFL teams that improved during the 2016 offseason

Rex Ryan can claim that the Bills are the NFL’s 2016 offseason champions, but since pads aren’t worn during the offseason, that hollow title is up for debate. Offseason activities across the league ended Thursday with 25 teams wrapping up their mandatory minicamps. The other seven teams finished last week. So now we can look back at free […]

NFL Draft: WR vs OT

Wide Receiver or Offensive Tackle? Which one is the better pick in Round 1 & Round 2? We analyzed the NFL Drafts from 2006-2012 in the first 2 rounds to see how those WRs and Ts did.  Some people do not like it when I refer to WRs and RBs as “toys,” so I felt that […]

NYG Glass Half Full?

It is way too early to get into predictions about how the 2016 season will unfold.  Last year at this time, we penned an article that got bullish on 2015, qualified it with how we would obviously need to see what training camp/preseason looked like, but 3 days later disaster struck.  Will Beatty tore his […]

Eli Manning salsa dances with Victor Cruz

Eli and Peyton Manning are all business on the field, but they’ve been known to let their hair down and have some fun when they’re off it. Peyton busted out some dance moves on the practice field in the past, and recently sang “Rocky Top” at a Nashville bar. Eli is a bit more quiet […]

Eli Manning ‘really excited’ about Giants adding Sterling Shepard

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is unsurprisingly thrilled about the addition of second-round receiver Sterling Shepard, according to his father. “Eli’s really excited about that,” Archie Manning said, via the Houston Chronicle. “After he was drafted, I got texts from guys like Bob Stoops, Barry Switzer and Spencer Tillman – all loyal Sooners – […]

Giants GM Jerry Reese blasts draft critics

Criticized by some for his selection of cornerback Eli Apple at No. 10 overall in the 2016 NFL draft, New York Giants general manager Jerry Reese fired back at draft pundits on Monday. “When somebody doesn’t know what they’re talking about, it’s easy to depict it that way,” Reese said, via NJ.com. “Because they don’t […]

Ten best rookie-on-rookie matchups to watch in 2016 NFL season

The 2016 NFL draft saw 253 players selected over a three-day span, providing the league with an influx of new talent and the next generation of stars. At various points in next year’s regular season, the best of these first-year players will run into another high pick from the draft class—providing intriguing clashes of young […]

Best, worst from 2016 NFL draft

The 2016 NFL draft is in the books. All those mock drafts are a thing of the past. The names of the 253 players drafted are set in stone. Now all that’s left is years and years of Monday morning quarterbacking, starting with this breakdown of the best and worst developments of the draft. Best Robert […]

2016 NFL Draft: Day 3

The Giants did not get value in Round 1 through Round 3.  But that changed in a big way on Day 3. Wonder, the UltimateNYG draft analyst, was very positive on Round 4 pick BJ Goodson and he was even more effusive on the 5th rounder RB Paul Perkins.  Lastly, Round 6 Tight End Jerell Adams […]

2016 NFL Draft- Round 2 & 3

The Giants drafted WR Sterling Shepard and S Darian Thompson. Shepard was ranked 49th by us out of our top 50, so he’s a good solid player. He’s got good hands. He’ll be able to help the team because he’s a good WR. But just like with Eli Apple, another good player, the Giants missed […]

NYG select Eli Apple

Last year, the Giants were hot for T Brandon Scherff.  That was telegraphed and leaked. More on the leaks later. We did not like the prospect, certainly not at 9th overall, because we did not project Scherff as a Tackle, and believed he was going to be a Guard.  You do not take a Guard […]

2016 NFL Draft Part 7: Eve of the Draft

Part 1: Four realistic possibilities that we prefer for the Giants in Round 1 are T Ronnie Stanley, DE DeForest Buckner, DE Shaq Lawson or CB Vernon Hargreaves. Part 2: When you pick 10th overall, certainty should be high and risks should be low. Prospects that have had bad injuries in college like Myles Jack […]
