Simms for Week 15 of the 2011 Season

Phil Simms joined Francesa on WFAN for the NFL Now.  Simms will be doing the DEN-NE game. 1) Eli Manning–  He is the man for the Giants.  He has steadily gotten better.  Throwing the football better.  Give Gilbride a lot of credit.  The WRs fit that system.  Victor Cruz is not a secret anymore.  Manning […]

Q and A with Redskins Hog Heaven

Anthony Brown, a Redskins blogger at Redskins Hog Heaven, answers our questions about Sunday’s game. UNYG: The Redskins got off to an auspicious start.  Defeating the Giants on opening day, then posting a 3-1 record after 4 games.  What happened? RHH: It’s football. Injuries happen. The Redskins lost LT Trent Williams and LG Kory Lichtensteiger in […]

The Giants and the NFL after Week 14

Some thoughts to finish up this past weekend.. 1) The Sunday night win was sweet, but let’s remember that Dallas was very generous to our team’s cause.  Is the NFC East making us better or simply camouflaging our own shortcomings?  Here is a recommended read back from 2008 that the NY Times picked up.  2) That was dizzying, how many games […]

Coordinators and the Giants Destiny

The Giants have the tiebreaker advantage over the Cowboys and truly control their own destiny as it relates to winning the NFC East.  Many writers in local NY area media and even fellow bloggers on other sites have the Giants as the clear frontrunner to win the NFC East division. But some former Giants Pro Bowlers […]

Giants 37 Cowboys 34

In a game in which the Giants had to win, they defeated Dallas at Cowboys Stadium.  Snapping a FOUR game losing streak, the Giants are 7-6 and in first place in the NFC East.  If it was not for the stellar play of Eli Manning and JPP, the Giants would have not won this game.   […]

Linval Joseph is getting better

We are going to break up the usual Sunday morning routine of Phil Simms and start with a piece done by the Star Ledger on Linval Joseph.  When you read stories like these you begin to understand why some special players can make it to the NFL w/o getting to play for top Division 1 college […]

Dallas Preview

In order to get a better sense of where the Cowboys are, I watched the rewind of the AZ-DAL game from last Sunday.  Everyone has seen the “icing” of the kicker by HC Jason Garrett at the end of regulation.  That move was preceded by the biggest story of the game: the 3rd and 11 reception […]

Wonder talks NY Giants and some players for the upcoming draft

Wonder is rolling out his own blog, a general NFL site.  He was nice enough to share some thoughts that are targeted particularly for the UltimateNYG NY Giants fans.  Remember, these early draft remarks will be subject to change in coming months, but it does give us an early taste for what is out there. Maybe I’m […]

Invitation to Ralph

We have dissected and analyzed Fewell’s defensive schemes going back to Pete’s initial observations when Fewell was hired on back in 2010.   Ralph Vacchiano, in essence, invited us to add our take on the recent coverage flaws this past Sunday.  You have to give Fewell credit where it’s due.  He did pick some good spots […]

38-35 in ’07 does not equal 38-35 in ’11

Lots of talk yesterday in the media and radio talking heads about whether this “moral victory” will now springboard them into a playoff caliber team. Banks, appearing in his regular spot on WFAN, is not buying into that notion.  But he did state, “their football self-esteem has got be up a little higher than it […]

Packers 38 Giants 35

Teams can win badly and teams can lose well.  The Giants lost well last night.  I know that to many, if not all of us, that that is small consolation.  But you have to trust me on this- LOSING WELL IS IMPORTANT.  It means you are fighting.  Just like in the NE game 4 weeks ago, […]

Fewell’s Delusion

Many beat writers in the NY media yesterday kept harping on Fewell’s recent press interview statement on how they were “going to get after Rodger’s a**.” They openly applauded Fewell for calling out his players for not bringing it and giving up on plays.  We won’t dispute that or disagree with him, wrt most of […]

Packers- Giants Preview

When UltimateNYG NY Giants blog joined the Bloguin Network 2 years ago, they had ~50 blogs and 9 NFL teams.  2 years later, and now Bloguin has ~150 blogs and 23 NFL teams.  Of the 9 teams that are still not on the NFL roster, 1 of them is amazingly the Green Bay Packers.  So […]
