Odds and Ends at 4-7

Lots of collected thoughts about the NY Giants as they face the remaining 5 games at 4-7. 1) Pat Traina had a very good breakdown of the Offense's struggles.  The focus of her analysis was Kevin Gilbride.  The conclusion is not a shock to this NY Giants blog… Mr. Gilbride is making mistakes and not […]

DAL 24 NYG 21

We knew we were going to find out if the Giants were real today.  6 games of ugliness were followed by 4 games of hope.  The hope had an asterisk of having played against 4 pretend QBs.  What would happen when the Giants finally faced a real QB? They came up short.  The Giants fought […]


Beason’s Arrival Has Begun to Restore Pride to Big Blue LB Corps

  As Andy looked at in his game review from Sunday—the Giants finally have been getting some quality efforts from the LB position. Anyone who spends time on the site knows, we in the UltimateNYG community have been baffled by the lack of attention paid by the organization to the position over the last several […]

JPP, Part 17

I got a chance to listen to some of Carl Banks and Kim Jones on WFAN this evening on my way home from work. Jones shared a nugget that is valuable for Giants fans to understand about the 2013 season… JPP told Jones that he hurt his shoulder right after getting a sack, and that […]

NYG 27 GB 13

Mirage or Makeover? The resurrection of the NY Giants 2013 season continues with another win, a 4 game win streak and a 4-6 record.  This was arguably the best and most complete game of the season for the gmen.  You suit up against the other team and you play the game.  The fact that the […]

Andre Brown Continues to Push Through Obstacles

  The return of Andre Brown was crucial for the Giants on so many levels, providing the team a jolt on the field and a source of motivation off. Brown's hard-fought journey to return and his first game back were certainly a highlight in a season where they have few and far between. On the field, just […]

NYG 24 OAK 20

  More bad football.  "The teams traded mistakes throughout." The procession of opponents with not-ready-for-primetime QBs continued. Josh Freeman in his first appearance in a Viking uniform.  Check. A hobbled Vick, followed by Matt Barkley.  Check. A hobbled Pryor who was unable to run beyond a trot.  Check. Up next is Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone, […]

Quick Hits Game Preview

The Giants are coming off the bye week and looking to build on their first “winning streak” winning streak of the season against the Oakland Raiders. UltimateNYG has been given the opportunity to attend this Sunday’s upcoming matchup and will be detailing the events in a recap blog, but in the mean time here are […]

To JPP or not to JPP, that is the Question

Andy Dufresne, in a letter to Red (Shawshank Redemption): "Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies." How much hope is there in the NY Giants 2013 season?  At 0-6, there was none.  But along the way, a few things happened that have worked the […]

Snapshots on NFL’s 32 Teams at Week 10

UlitmateNYG's resident football savant, Wonder, goes around the NFL with snapshots on all 32 teams.  He does not have flattering things to say about the NY Giants. NE- Either Belichick is the greatest coach in the world, or the Pats are the luckiest in the world. BUF- Bright future, but injury to EJ Manuel sets […]

Justin Tuck Quietly Among NFL’s Best DE in 2013

  Some in the media and (what seems like) many Giants fans view Justin Tuck as a shell of himself and consider him to be a non-factor at this point in his career. With his contract expiring at season's end, it is certainly possible that Tuck is beginning his final eight games as a Giant. […]

The Sound of Denial

Longtime commenter "I Bleed Blue" remarked 2 days ago how he looked forward to the bye to finally hear the words from on high… Jerry Reese's media tour. Ricky: "Luuuucy. You got some 'splainin to do!" I am sure he was disappointed. On an interview late yesterday with Mike Francesa, Reese was asked about the […]

NYG 15 PHI 7

A win is a win.  A road win is even better.  The Giants had an 8 game road losing streak.  Good riddance to that streak.  The Eagles now have a 10 game losing streak at home.  That ongoing malady breaks my heart. Not.  May the fleas of a thousand camels infest the Linc. Dallas snatched defeat from the jaws […]

Hill has Proven Worth the Wait for Big Blue D

  As Giants fans, our season has devloved into a search for silver linings. A 1-6 start to the season will do that to you, but in order to take some good from the 2013 season it is what we as fans have to do as fall turns to winter. As Rich did in his […]
