DEN 24 CAR 10

Some observations: 1) GOOD- Denver’s pocket contain of Cam. He got loose a few times but they adjusted and controlled his ability to scramble. Said Ware: “we made sure we kept the pocket tight so he couldn’t get out and run.” 2) GOOD- taking Olsen out of the game.  I did not review film but […]

Aaron Wellman

Aaron Wellman has been hired as the new Strength & Conditioning Coach of the NY Giants. I need to spend time researching him to find out more about his philosophy, practices and priorities. I did an extremely cursory search and heard some comments made about strength. What specifically needs to be answered is- what is […]

Jerry Palmieri Out

Ben McAdoo will not be bringing Jerry Palmieri back to the NY Giants this year as the NY Giants Strength & Conditioning coach. Signs of intelligent life.  Cartwheels.  Better late than never. This NY Giants blogger has been calling for an overhaul of the NY Giants S&C program for YEARS.  All we got were crickets […]

McAdoo and Giants closing in on deal to name him new Head Coach

Reports on Twitter (Art Stapleton, Rappaport of, beat writers confirmed) state McAdoo to be named new Head Coach of the Giants.  Details of the deal being finalized. Some quick analysis, which essentially repeats and summarizes our thoughts on Twitter from the past week: Marrone was not a good choice.  He had risk and baggage. […]

NFL Playoff One-Liners

Wonder gives his one-liners for the playoff teams. AFC DEN– Can Peyton turn back the hands of time? NE– Better eat your wheaties, Tom Brady (OL needs help) CIN– Marvin Lewis is still waiting for his first playoff win. HOU– Do not pass go. Do not collect $200. KC– The weakest 10 game winning streak […]

Three Blind Mice

Reese, Mara and the Media.  Three Blind Mice.  I have varying degrees of contempt for all of them right now.  I just got finished listening to the press conferences for both of them and it was positively insipid. Contempt is not a healthy emotion.  I try to be objective and analytical.  It is really hard […]

PHL 35 NYG 30

We will do a quick recap and then talk about what is next for the Gmen. Another game, another metaphor for this losing season. Coughlin not going for it on 4th down a few times at the Eagles ~39 yard line. Opponents Running Backs and Tight Ends killing the Giants Safeties and Linebackers. Batted balls […]

Reasons for Change- Part 3

Today is the final part of a 3 part series, asking for accountability and change within the Giants organization.  The past 2 days, we discussed replacing Tom Coughlin and Jerry Reese.  Part 3 centers around Ronnie Barnes, who heads medical services for the Giants. Let me first put together some qualifiers.  Just like with Mr. […]

Reasons for Change- Part 2

In Part 1, we discussed why Tom Coughlin should be replaced.  Here in Part 2, we run through the reasons why Jerry Reese should be replaced. 1) Too many bad drafts.  Let’s use John Mara’s years alone, citing 2011 and 2012 being unproductive. Overall, it is far worse. There has been exactly ONE Reese draft […]

The Reasons for Change

In coming days, John Mara is going to be making a decision about whether or not to make changes in the NY Giants organization.  We have been arguing that there has been consistent underachievement attributable to many people who all collectively must be held accountable. Together, Tom Coughlin, Jerry Reese and Ronnie Barnes must all […]

MINN 49 NYG 17

It was right around this time 23 years ago when the Giants were dressing up a 5-9 season with the Chiefs on NBC on a Saturday afternoon in December.  It was the 15th game of the season.  And the color commentator, Bob Trumpy, was the resident apologist for Ray Handley.  Trumpy was feeding the masochistic […]

Odell Beckham Suspended

Odell Beckham was handed a 1 game suspension, effective vs the Vikings this next Sunday night.  The NFL did what it should have done, something we believed was appropriate when we recapped the game ~24 hours ago. OBJ Fine History 2014 $10k STL Fighting 2014 $11k PHI Helmet thrown 2015 $9k BUF Fighting … NFL […]

CAR 38 NYG 35

I need help.  I am in a permanent state of Giants anaesthesia awareness.  That is where I am being operated on surgically with all of the pain of the past 4 years of Giants frustration yet can’t move/remove myself from this masochistic trip.  Someone please tell Mr. Mara that I need a change. These Giants losses are […]

NYG 31 MIA 24

When two mediocre 5-7 teams face off in a ~pickem contest, one of them has to win. This was arguably the weakest of the 4 remaining opponents for the Giants. They did what they had to do to win. Eli Manning 27/31 337yds 4 TDs 0 INTs. Odell Beckham 7 Rec 166 TDs 2 TDs […]
