10 Years of Coziness with Kevin Gilbride

Erin Brockovich: "I just went out there and performed sexual favors. Six hundred and thirty-four b*** j**s in five days… I'm really quite tired." Prefer he tweak than leave "

Getting Middled

"Hey diddle diddle, the fiddle hit a middle." Did the Giants get middled in going 7-9? One of the tools of the trade in sports betting is trying to middle a sports line.  It's the hole in the middle of a betting structure where you can win both sides of a bet.  The classic middle […]

Gilbride Rumored to be Fired

Late Monday we tweeted that sources inside the Giants confirm that sometime later this week or next week Kevin Gilbride will be let go from the team.  We made the case for many years that the Giants won despite Gilbride. We made the case that when he was dealt less than a perfect hand that […]

NYG 20 WAS 6

Zero has changed in the last 24 hours.  The same team that was 6-9 is now finished for the season at 7-9.  Oh, except that Beatty broke his leg, Manning sprained his ankle, Randle sprained his ankle, and Nicks I frankly don't care because the guy is perpetually hurt. Jerrel Jernigan had his second consecutive […]


I have some friends who are avid Chiefs fans, and we were out at dinner last night.  There was a message that was fundamental to the nature of the NFL that we discussed.  It needs to be shared here, if only because it happened to the Giants and it is happening right now to the […]

NFL Top Offensive Players in 2013

Subjective rankings of the Top 5 NFL players at each position on Offense, as rated by Wonder.  Sometimes players are taken off the list because of injury (Julio Jones), and other times they are included out of defiance (Gronkowski).  Right Tackle was horrible.  At WR, so deep that more than a few who deserved to […]

The Case for Replacing Kevin Gilbride with a new Offensive Coordinator

Today we list 14 reasons why Kevin Gilbride should be replaced next season.  Along with Gilbride, other Giants coaches who we believe should be replaced include Tom Quinn and Jerry Palmieri.  Commenters on this NY Giants blog have alluded to the failures of Sean Ryan (QB) and Kevin M. Gilbride (WR); we suspect that they […]

NYG 23 DET 20 OT

"Here, you have the game." "No, I don't want it, I am awful.  You have it!" "No thanks.  Don't go telling me you're awful. I'm awful too.  You have it." "I just said I didn't want it. You have it…" For those of you who chose to miss the game and merely get a recap […]

The NFC at Week 16

Wonder covers the NFC, Part 2 of coverage around the NFL.  See random comments after the 16 teams below for more color on what is making these teams do well or underachieve. PHI- Exceeded expectations, should win the NFC East DAL- Jerry Jones should clean house, starting with himself NYG- Start Eli for 1 series, […]

The AFC at Week 16

Frankly, I am so fed up with this Dead-Giants-Man Walking that my love of football has to have some kind of outlet.  This season is a reminder of the nightmare 1970s.  So here is one productive way I survived 1970's football- I watched other teams in the NFL and learned to appreciate what good football […]

SEA 23 NYG 0

Last week the Giants got their (Super Bowl) clock cleaned by SD, losing 37-13.  This week they lost again by a similar margin, only this time it was a shutout, 23-0. "Pathetic," said Tom Coughlin of his offense's performance.  The frequenters of this NY Giants blog have company in their assessment of that unit this year, […]

SD 37 NYG 14

When the NY Giants started the season 0-6, everyone understood that the season was for all intent and purposes over.  After the team was fortunate enough to face 4 consecutive garbage QBs Freeman, barely days old a Viking Barkley Pryor, with an MCL sprain Tolzien .. there was some remote hope that Beason, Hill and […]

Giants 24 Redskins 17

  …the word of the night after this one was fight and the Giants certainly did that in this one.  It would have come as a surprise to no one, if the 0-6 Giants packed it in. Or if the freshly "almost-eliminated "4-6 Giants did not rise to the occasion in last night's matchup. This […]

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 […]
