NYG 27 IND 26

Oh, the final score, if it could only tell the real story.  About the only good thing that happened was the final score.  The rest of the game (Q1-Q3) was sloppy, if you are in the optimist’s camp. And it was awful if you are modest in your expectations for this season.  We are modest […]

NYG 20 Steelers 16

Having had family commitments on a weekend summer evening, I was only able to “steel” away to watch about ~70% of the preseason contest.  Nonetheless, the simple message is that the Giants are a work in progress.  How much progress is being made is the question.  Steve Serby, for one, was blunt about the glass […]

David Wilson Retires From Football

Anyone complaining about the lack of posts is not on Twitter.  So get on twitter, follow us and get as much Giants as you crave from that Social Media site..  there are so many Giants players, beat writers, NY Giants bloggers, NY Giants lists, breaking news, you name it.  And during the games during the […]

NYG 17 Buffalo 13

It’s the first preseason game.  Who looked good: 1) Damonster got a sack and a pressure.  He’s flashing.. we will look for more from Moore. 2) Nassib looked much better than at any time in 2013.  His pass to Washington for a TD was the eye-catching stat, but more importantly he was in command and […]

Training Camp Begins

The 2014 NY Giants season starts with training camp, which begins with its first practice tomorrow.  Two big news items hit in the past 24 hours: (1) Snee is retiring and (2) Wilson is completely cleared to practice and play football. Chris Snee’s body simply wore down before his desire.  While Snee was ready to […]

Excellent Value Taken by Gmen on Day 3!

The Draft is 3 days and 7 rounds long.  Tom Brady and Ahmad Bradshaw will tell you that.  Jerry Reese and the Giants did a great job on Day 3 of collecting a lot of good talent for where they picked.  This will hopefully translate to production on the field. Our draft analyst Wonder is […]

Draft: Day 3 Targets and Sleepers

See the list below.  It’s all about potential on Day 3.  Are you drafting to fill a roster for a year or two on specials, until the next player bounces him, OR are you looking to find a guy with the potential to make a difference?!  This list is all about players that have the […]

Giants select Richburg and Bromley in R2 & R3

Richburg is a Center. That was need, since the physical health of Walton is not certain.  Bromley is a DT.  The Giants like drafting DT’s (Joseph, Austin, Hankins, Bromley) with high draft picks.  Not sure why, but that’s what they do. I guess I question what the point is to drafting these guys high if […]

Odell Beckham selected in Round 1

Just remember that Taylor Lewan went 11 and Odell Beckham went 12. Barring injury, that will tell the story of great vs good. Regulars to this NY Giants blog know that I am not a fan of taking WRs in Round 1. So forgive me if I am not doing cartwheels for taking a WR. […]

Final 2014 Draft Thoughts

OUR 10 GUYS: CLOWNEY ROBINSON MATTHEWS LEWAN MACK BARR WATKINS EVANS EBRON GILBERT These are the 10 guys, one of which the Giants must take when they pick at 12. If Barr or Ebron is one of the 2 left at 12 and you pass on them, shame on you. Ebron will totally change the […]

2014 NFL Round 1 Mock Draft

Here at UltimateNYG, we don’t really put a lot of stock in mock drafts. And this year, given that there is such a big dropoff in talent from ~ the 16th pick, the whole second half of R1 is one big cr*pshoot. Getting in the heads of 32 imperfect GMs is nearly impossible. All you […]

The 5th Year Option- A Review of 2011’s Round 1 Draft

When we started the Draft Project in 2010, we were hoping that Bloguin would fill out its roster of NFL team coverage so that each blogger could grade their own team’s Draft.  This would provide independent and knowledgeable conclusions on the performance of each player drafted in all 7 rounds.  That has not happened, and […]

Versatility vs Dominance

The Rules For Winning in the NFL was originally posted July 4, 2007.  Some modifications have been made over the years, as a few rules have been added and deleted.  The league has changed.  But the lion’s share have stood the test of time. We are days away from the Draft, and there are more than […]


UltimateNYG NY Giants blog draft analyst Wonder emphasizes value wherever he can.  2 years ago, just because he thought that LBer Vontaze Burfict had the potential to be special,  didn’t mean he wanted any team in their right mind to take him early in the draft.  He had off-the-field problems, but felt from a VALUE perspective that the risk in […]
