NE 28 SEA 24

Super Bowl XLIX was a great game.  Entertaining.  Each team played well enough in spurts to win it.  And it was fitting that both teams had their opportunities to close the deal.  Seattle made the wrong playcall (understatement of NFL history?!) and NE took the game. Seattle was the recipient of another NE “cursed” moment […]

Super Bowl XLIX Thoughts

I know the Seahawks team much better than most in the NFL, excepting of course the NFC East.  With that said, I have seen this team at its worst and at its best.  They are playing well right now, peaking at the right time.  Seattle is good enough to win. I lean toward them to win, but […]

Why DeflateGate Matters

The significance of the disclosure that the Patriots’ 12 footballs were underinflated is very important to the NFL.  Numerous attempts have been made this past week to belittle or cloud the issue about DeflateGate.  Even the name gets mocked.  But there is nothing trivial about these charges. Let’s get some math out of the way. (This paragraph […]

Belichick- Past and Present

Everyone knows about SpyGate.  Eric Mangini left New England and out’d his former boss, putting the NFL onto the Patriots’ serial videotaping of opposing teams signals so that they could decipher their plays.  The NFL found them guilty, fined Belichick 6 figures and the Patriots lost a Round 1 draft pick. Famously, the league also […]

SEA 28 GB 22

You’ll tell your grandchildren about this one.  At least you are lucky to be a Giants fan and not a GB fan.  GB fans will have a nightmare hangover that will not end until they get back to and win another Super Bowl.  We know this feeling all too well, as our nightmare demons from […]

Steve Spagnuolo hired as new DC

Yes, you can go home again. The single best coordinator in Tom Coughlin’s 11 year reign as head coach of the NY Giants has been Defensive Coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.  “Spags” captained the defensive ship in 2007 and 2008 with great success.  He returns in 2015 to the NY Giants. We love the move.  Why?  Not […]

Giants Roster: 2014 Review & 2015 Projections

The following is a Guest Post, written by Lou Musto.  Lou is a grounded and objective commenter on the NY Giants and all things NFL.  He shares his thoughts on the Giants 2014 season and where the team is headed next season: The 2014 NFL season could be categorized only as a disappointment for the […]

Perry Fewell Is Out

Perry Fewell has been let go as the Defensive Coordinator of the NY Giants. The emperor has no clothes and the Giants (Mara/Reese/Coughlin) saw no clothes.  Every commenter uniformly agreed that it was time for the Giants to move on from Fewell.  We were resigned to a reality this past week where Fewell would stay […]

PFF 2014 Recap of the GMen

With a full season of 2014 data from Pro Football Focus (PFF), it is easier to “see the field.” While we do not necessarily agree with all of the stats on individual players collected by PFF, overall they are correct far more often than not and provide an objective measure of comparison.  PFF will be the first […]

Jerry Reese Puts on Another Great Show

Jerry Reese spoke with the media this morning. Good Morning. Yes, it is good because Mara would’ve canned me if Jacksonville was the last game of the season. Six and 10, obviously we are all disappointed. But thankfully Mara is not disappointed enough because he makes too much money from addicted fans who keep paying […]

Tom Coughlin after 2014

Tom Coughlin has been kept on for at least another year. We can leave it there, play it safe, and accept the decision. As fans, we have little choice. Today, the Giants will talk about staying the course. But let’s get some perspective here- the Giants stunk it up yet again. Did ANY of that smell come […]

NYG 37 STL 27

The NY Giants racked up a nice win.  You can put up an asterisk on playing vs backup Shaun Hill but it was arguably the best win of this 2014 season for the Gmen.  The Offensive Line did very well vs a very good St. Louis Defensive Line. Eli was kept clean (1 sack, which Eli […]

NYG 36 TEN 7

This is what the score should have looked like vs the Jaguars.  Due to work commitments, I had to leave the (tv) game with the Giants ahead 23-0 at the half. The Giants played a lot of younger players.  The Titans were midgets on the OL and the Gmen rung up 8 sacks including 2 forced fumbles. Eli […]

JAX 25 NYG 24

Stunning defeat.  The Giants played the first of 3 Stooges and promptly dominated to go up 21-0.  That was the storyline, a simple example of how a bad Giants team was better than a horrible Jaguars team.  It was not a fair fight.  Then 2 things happened.  (1) The Game entered the 2nd half, a black […]

The Three Stooges

No, not Moe, Larry and Curly.  Jacksonville, Tennessee and Washington.  The Giants play 3 bottom-feeders the next 3 games.  Now that they are officially eliminated with Detroit’s Turkey Day win over powerhouse Chicago, we get to see how the 1-eyed man beats on the blind.  Fewell’s defense enjoys preying on the weak Offense and the […]
