The Blue Knight Rises, Gotham’s G-Men Building Dynasty

April 6, 2012

NEW YORK – Hello Giants fans, it’s been a while since the last article. I have been basking in the Super Bowl XLVI victory a bit more then usual. It’s fun talking to friends you’ve known your entire life when your team is one Super Bowl win away from being a dynasty. If the Giants win another Super Bowl within the next 3 years, they are a dynasty. To be even more specific, the Giants have until 2017 to win another one, which would give them 3 Super Bowl rings in a single decade. I honestly believe the Giants and QB Eli Manning are going to do it. Manning is elite, Manning is a Pro Bowl QB, 2x Super Bowl MVP, 2x Super Bowl Champion and has an Iron Man streak for most consecutive games without missing a start going. The guy is simply a winner and a family man. It’s hard not to like him and root for him.

The team is going to have a lot of players returning from injury this year. Some of the more important names to keep an eye on are CB Terrell Thomas, OL William Beatty, WR Domenik Hixon, TE Travis Beckum, TE Jake Ballard, TE Martellus Bennett, RB Ahmad Bradshaw, LB Clint Sintim, DT Marvin Austin, RB Da’Rel Scott and S Chad Jones. All of these players had injuries last year or have had a major career move. The G-Men need to avoid the rash of injuries that has plagued them since the 2009 season. If they can avoid loading up the injured reserve list and play at full strength one season, they have a nice chance of making it back to the big game and winning it again. Big Blue has proven how deep the team really is.

The 2012 NFL Draft is coming up in a few weeks and there seems to be a mix of areas that fans think are important. I don’t think the Giants will take a RB in the first round but you never know. A linebacker, offensive lineman or tight end could be on the top of the list. I would not be surprised to see them take another defensive back in round one since DC Perry Fewell is a DB guru. I like the extra pick the Giants will get in the fourth round as a compensation pick. Of course, if the best available player on the board is too good to ignore, they will draft him, no matter what the position. Even if it is another defensive end you say? Yes, I do. Nothing surprises me anymore with the Giants drafts. I really want to see the Giants invest in protecting QB Eli Manning this year. I want to see a few new big guys on the roster to contribute to the rotation. I’m convinced this is the year to invest heavily on offensive linemen in the draft and free agency. Surely it’s on both GM Jerry Reese and HC Tom Coughlin’s mind.

What do you think about the Giants roster moves thus far?

The New York Giants: Injury Report 10/1/11

October 1, 2011

EAST RUTHERFORD- In the past, injuries have been known to crush the hopes of making it to the Super Bowl for many teams in the NFL. I used to believe there was no such thing as a ‘one man marching band’, but this year, the Indianapolis Colts have made think twice about that. Since the 2006 season, Colts QB Peyton Manning has lead the Colts to two Super Bowls and one championship. Unfortunately, due to a neck injury, Peyton has seen only the sideline this season. The Colts have started 0-3 this season for the first time in quite a while. That goes to show you that perhaps there is such a thing as a ‘one man marching band’.

In my opinion, Eli’s brother Peyton has clearly been the one and ONLY anchor for the entire Colts team. Now, many of you know the Giants have been riddled with injuries this season. But unlike the Colts, I believe the Giants have adjusted well enough to losing some key players to win games. The Giants have a 2-1 start after stopping the so called ‘dream team’ last week, the Eagles. So enough babbling, here is the Giants injury update for this Sunday’s game in Arizona.

CB Prince Amukamara: Out

No surprise here. Giants fans were told before the regular season began that Amukamara would most likely miss 4-6 weeks this season after suffering a foot injury during training camp. Of course, he would be a key player this week with the Giants facing Larry Fitzgerald and the Cardinals but I believe the CB’s have performed rather well without him and will continue to do so this week.

WR Brandon Stokley: Out

Eli Manning will have to play without Stokley this week because Stokley left practice early Wednesday with a quadricep injury. Still, I think that Eli will have plently of options and will be able to find a reciever to throw to seeing how WR Victor Cruz has stepped up to the plate. No word on when Stokley’s return might be.

DE Justin Tuck: Questionable

Justin Tuck’s lingering neck injury may keep him off the field this Sunday. This could end up being the missing link this week. With Tuck not on the field I think Card’s QB Kevin Kolb would have ample time to toss a pass to WR Larry Fitzgerald. This could prove to be deadly for the Giants. All Giants fans are hoping to see No.91 on the field this weekend.

DE Osi Umenyiora: Questionable

Giants coaches and Umenyiora are ‘optimistic’ that Umenyiora may take the field Sunday after being sidelined since August after knee surgery. Umenyiora could be a sigh of relief it Tuck cannot take the field Sunday.

LB/LS Zak DeOssie: Questionable

DeOssie was listed as questionable with a back injury and did not practice on Friday. Zak is a tough guy and it would take something serious to keep him out of a game.

Among the banged up players who will likely take the field on Sunday are Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks. This will be a sigh of relief for Manning who will need all of his weapons and also because Stokley is out this week. If the Giants can shut down the Kolb-Fitzgerald combo, I think the G-Men will have no problem taking down the Cards tomorrow. The game starts at 4:05 PM EST. GO GIANTS!

The Giants Injury Epidemic Has Become a Serious Problem

September 3, 2011

NEW YORK – The Giants have been decimated by injuries for the past three years in a row. There is nothing more frustrating to the players, coaches and fans then the team losing games because they cannot field the best talent available. It has now become an epidemic, as the Giants have lost a ton of quality players to injury for the year and we have not even started the regular season yet. At some point, even the fans have to question the conditioning program in their search of why so many players have been going down in recent years. I am not calling out anyone on the Giants staff but this seems to be more then just bad luck when the Giants have consistently lost 20% of their team for the past three years. I’m not sure who or why anyone would argue with trying to find out the reason.

It is my intention to find the problem and eliminate it. I now this is highly unlikely but we can try right. I’m sure that people will say that injuries are a part of the game and I would agree with them but this is out of control now. This isn’t your run of the mill injury list, year in and year out. We are talking about high quality players and tens of millions of dollars being thrown away. At what point do we take a long hard look into what the heck is going on with players dropping like flies every year? I say the time is now to do a thorough investigation and evaluation of the strength and conditioning habits and routines that all Giants players must adhere to. Are they too strict or too soft? Are players not being taught the proper techniques? Are the players and coaches being held accountable? Is there any other answer besides a bad luck streak?

I’m not sure what can be done but it is becoming very hard to watch these players go down. I’m sure the coaches feel it even more then me with Coach Coughlin being the pinnacle of pain during these horrible turn of events. Football is a contact sport and injuries will happen but can any of you Giants fans out there honestly say that you can remember a three year stretch where we have lost so many good players due to injury? I know that I can honestly say no to that question. Let’s find out where the problem lies and eliminate it. By my count, the Giants have lost 36 players to injury over the past three years (including this year thus far).

Here is the list of Giants players who have been injured during the 2011 offseason.

1. CB Terrell Thomas – Out for season/IR List

2. CB Bruce Johnson – Out for season/Cut.

3. CB Brian Witherspoon – Out for season/IR List.

4. DT Marvin Austin – Out for season/IR List.

5. LB Clint Sintim – Out for season/IR List.

6. CB Prince Amukamara – Out 6-8 weeks.

7. WR Duke Calhoun – Injured/Cut.

8. OL Adam Koets – PUP List.

9. WR Ramses Barden – PUP List.

10. K Lawrence Tynes – Missed final 3 preseason games. Questionable for start of regular season.

11. DE Osi Umenyiora – Expected to to miss 2-4 weeks of the regular season after surgery.

How would you explain the massive amount of injuries experienced by the Giants over the past three years?

Steve Smith to Eagles Will Hurt More Then You Think

August 16, 2011

NEW YORK – It has been about a week since the news broke about WR Steve Smith going to the rival Philadelphia Eagles. I didn’t write an entire article on this subject because I was still in a state of shock and denial about it for most of this time. It is time for me to give this topic a full article. Now, I know the Giants have some great young WR’s on the team and I know it is time for them to step up. But we are talking about Steve Smith here and not some run of the mill player. Smith is a Super Bowl Champion and Pro Bowl player who was QB Eli Manning’s favorite safety valve. Manning must be fuming at the reality of losing so many of his familiar faces on offense (Smith, Boss, Hedgecock, O’Hara, Seubert, Andrews). I think the game on Saturday showed that he was rattled and will need to put in a lot of work with the new guys before he can settle down.

Giants fans were absolutely disgusting in their remarks to Steve Smith after hearing the news. Some were wishing him dead or for him to get a worse injury then the one the 26 year old is already mending. I couldn’t believe some of the venom being thrown at the man who just 24 hours earlier was a fan favorite. Of course, I understand their anger about him going to a division rival and you could compare it to breaking up with a loved one and saying things that you don’t really mean. I was honestly shocked too by the news that he would accept that deal and jeopardize the New York love he had received so deeply. Apparently, there were some things that did not make it to the press about his situation and following his exodus from Big Blue, there were a ton of back and forth remarks that raised some eye brows. The Giants say they offered him a $35 million dollar deal last year and Smith’s camp says that it never happened. Someone is lying but fans will have to wonder who it is. It’s just plain ugly, either way you look at it.

I think we can all agree that WR Hakeem Nicks is the No.1 WR on the team. The one thing I am certain of is that the Giants do not have a better No.2 WR then Smith on the team. A lot of fans will say that Mario Manningham is better then Smith but I disagree. I am not saying that Manningham is a bad WR at all. In fact, Mario is one my favorite players on the team and can handle his business with the best of them. What I’m saying is that Mario hasn’t done what Smith has done yet. Is the potential there? Sure it is. But we will need to see what happens on the field before making a final assessment. Some will say that Manningham would have taken the No.2 WR spot anyway and that Smith would be the No.3 guy. OK, let’s look at that then for the sake of argument. As far as there being a better No.3 WR on the team, there isn’t. There just flat out isn’t anyone who matches up with Smiths talent that deep into the roster and if you think there is, you’re kidding yourself. Smith holds the all-time single season receptions record for the New York Giants with 107 and until another WR comes close to that kind of production, I simply cannot compare them to Smith.

Steve Smith was the first interview ever for nygreporter. I cannot ever thank him enough for doing that for me (thank you to N.S. and Smith’s agent again for helping set that up). I will forever be a fan of his for that reason (except when he plays the Giants of course) and will always consider him a first class guy off the field. You can check out the interview I did with him here: Steve Smith Interview 3/6/11, nygreporter Edition 0001

Now that you have had some time to really think about the Steve Smith departure, what are you thoughts about it?

Giants Lose Half of their Starting Offense in 2011

August 11, 2011

NEW YORK – The New York Giants might have to change their name to the New Look Giants this season. The team has been hit with a string of bad news (karma is a female dog) in recent weeks and the team has lost half of their starting offense. The news about WR Steve Smith going to the rival Eagles yesterday sealed the deal for me. I have been a very big fan of GM Jerry Reese and have showered him with praise since the first year he came to the team. But even my faith has been shaken by the mass exodus of pro bowl athletes in 2011. Think about this for a moment, the Giants have lost OL Rich Seubert, OL Shaun O’Hara, TE Kevin Boss, FB Madison Hedgecock and WR Steve Smith. All five of these guys were starters in an offense that requires eleven men. You do the math.

The Giants also lost some other quality guys such as OL Shawn “Fan Fav” Andrews, DT Barry Cofield (who also went to division rival, the Redskins). They are in a contract battle with all pro DE Osi Umenyiora, they lost CB Bruce Johnson to injury and cut him. They signed TE Ben Patrick who turned around and retired on them and they have lost their 1st round pick CB Prince Amukamara for two months. When it rains, it pours. There were other transactions made but these mentioned are the big deals and the team still hasn’t addressed all of the free agents that need signing. The Giants play their first preseason game in two days and will need to get a ton of new players up to speed on the playbook and the system. I’m not sure how they will fair but I wish them good luck with that.

I cannot remember a year in recent memory where the Giants lost so many quality players within a one month period of time. I’m not sure if there ever was a similar situation in team history. Yes, the team has signed some players but they hardly replaced all of the talent the team lost. I hope Jerry Reese knows what he is doing because this will be an unrecognizable group of players on the field to the true blue fan. The fact that the team was six million dollars over the salary cap certainly plays into the mix but that also begs the question of why? Who was watching the salary cap and allowed this to happen? Rabid fans have been calling for the head of Jerry Reese and for changes in the front office as a whole. I will keep my opinions to myself until I see what the team does in 2011. I will not panic but I am certainly deeply concerned.

What are your thoughts about the recent roster moves made by the Giants?

New York Giants Will Focus on Depth and Improve in 2011

February 10, 2011

NEW YORK – There is no denying the fact that the New York Giants are a very talented football team. I have been one of the fans that said the amount of injuries the team had in 2010, seriously effected their play on the field. The Giants placed 16 players on the IR List in 2010. I’m not so sure that argument applies any longer, after seeing the Green Bay Packers win the Super Bowl with 15 of their players residing on the IR list. I like to believe the Giants are a deep team but maybe we have all been wrong. After back to back injury plagued seasons, fans have to wonder just how deep the team really is and what coaching changes need to be made in the conditioning department. The Giants went 8-8 in 2009 and 10-6 in 2010 respectively.

Giants GM Jerry Reese is a draft guru and I’m sure that he will be focusing on depth this year. He will certainly address the offensive line (which did an outstanding job in 2010) and get more talent to help out in that area. OL William Beatty, OL Adam Koets and OL Mitch Petrus are three guys who fans might see more of in 2011. He will focus on improving the cornerback position and quite frankly, he should. Why have a defensive coordinator who specializes in DB’s and then not get him at least two more players of his choosing to coach? This seems like a no brainer. I am comfortable with the safeties on the team but the cornerback position seems to need a little depth. CB Terrell Thomas has been outstanding on his side of the field and lead the team in tackles in 2010.

The linebacker position is another area that must be on the team radar. The current linebacker group has a lot of talented players but they certainly don’t have a Lawrence Taylor playing back there. The G-Men need the next LT to be thrown into the mix and lead that group of young men. Fans still need to see how LB Clint Sintim and LB Phillip Dillard work out but bringing in a young veteran “Patrick Willis” type of player should be a priority in my opinion. As crazy as it sounds, the Giants might need to throw another wide receiver into the mix too. It was painful to see WR after WR go down with injuries and I would not want that to happen again in 2011. NFL teams need two No.1 and two No.2 WR’s on the team these days for just that very reason. Every fourth and fifth WR should be able to start as a No.3 on any NFL team. This is an ideal situation for all NFL teams and hopefully something Big Blue can pull off.

The one area of the team that needs the most help is also the only spot on the team that does not have depth. I’m talking about special teams and boy do they need work. P Matt Dodge and K Lawrence Tynes should both be concerned for different reasons. Dodge should be concerned because of his inconsistent rookie season and Tynes might feel the heat of a team needing a change at the kicker position. The return specialists also had their fair share of problems in 2010. Special teams coach Tom Quinn should also be very concerned about his job in my opinion.

Regardless of the injuries or depth issues, the New York Giants have enough talent to make the playoffs. There is no reason why they should have been watching the playoffs on TV this season with their 10-6 record. I will not guarantee anything or jinx the team but I would be shocked if the G-Men were to miss the playoffs for a third consecutive year. If that were to happen, there would be big changes in New York for 2012. What do you think?

More Bad News for the New York Football Giants

December 30, 2010

NEW YORK – As if the past two weeks of embarrassing losses weren’t enough, Giants fans now receive the news that star WR Hakeem Nicks and pro bowl C Shaun O’Hara will not play in the season finale against the Redskins Sunday. This is bad. I don’t have to emphasize how important those two players are to the New York offense. It’s bad enough that WR Steve Smith is out for the year, along with other key players (14 on IR list at last count) but now with WR Hakeem Nicks being held out, the team will be playing with 3rd, 4th and 5th string WR’s in a must win division game. Punt returner Will Blackmon was also placed on the injured reserve list.

I have been shaking my head at the Giants for weeks now, unable to accept what I have been seeing on the field and cringing at the reality of losing more key players. It’s a simple scenario that needs to happen on Sunday, the Giants need to win and the Packers need to lose to the Bears. Can the Giants come through with the win and honor their end of the bargain or will they collapse under the pressure, as they have done for the past two weeks against the Eagles and Packers? Granted there were some strange situations to contend with the past two weeks with the foul weather effecting the teams travel plans. The most recent case, the G-Men being stranded in Green Bay for two days (the team returned home on Tuesday afternoon) following the Sunday game.

There was some good news to come out of the Giants camp this week. DT Barry Cofield won the “good guy” award, something I think this man deserves. I was one of the most vocal writers out here to voice my displeasure in the fact that Cofield’s name come up during trade talks before the season began. Cofield is a big part of the Giants defense and any deal that would send him to another team would be foolish. I see you Barry!

I have to take Big Blue in the victory over the Redskins on Sunday. If the Giants lose to Washington, I would have to throw my arms up to the whole season. This is absolutely, one hundred percent, a game the Giants should win and if they don’t, I am going to be extremely disappointed. The Giants should literally blow out the Redskins, even though we have some key players injured and missing the game. The G-Men are still ranked in the top six for both offense (3) and defense (6). They need to win this game for the fans, for themselves and for the honor of the Giants organization.

Giants vs. Eagles, NFL Week 15: Game Notes

December 19, 2010

NEW YORK – The second contest between the Giants and Eagles this year had become the most anticipated game of the season for both teams. Once the playoff picture and divisional championship picture became clear, it was obvious that this game was going to decide the future of both clubs in the NFC East. The Giants simply dominated the Eagles for the first three quarters of the game and then became undone in the fourth quarter. This was not a very enjoyable game to watch for Giants fans, as Big Blue lost by a score of 38-31 on a punt return by DeSean Jackson with 12 seconds left in the game. The Eagles improve their record to 10-4 and take sole possession of first place in the NFC East, as the Giants fall to 9-5. There were a lot of fights during this game as well. It seemed like there were players locked up with each other after every single play. I almost got physically sick after watching this embarrassing loss.

The Giants were dealt some bad news this week after losing star WR Steve Smith for the rest of the season. Fans were concerned that this would have a negative impact on the Eagles game but the Giants took care of business in that department. The Giants have placed at least 14 players on the season ending injured reserve list. These are star players that I’m talking about in most cases and not just reserve backup players. The G-Men have been devastated by these injuries for the past two years and I’m not sure how they continue to compete at this high level. I guess we need to give GM Jerry Reese credit for making Big Blue a deep team, something that I do with pleasure because Mr. Reese is a genius and I’m glad he is working with the Giants.

The G-men gave fans a scare in the fourth quarter by letting the Eagles get back into the game with a couple of late TD’s. They needed to close the game out strong but were not able to do it. It was much more nerve racking to watch on TV, then it sounds here in words, when the Eagles tied the game up 31-31 with 76 seconds remaining in the game. I was literally pacing around the room for the remainder of the fourth quarter. I found myself on the floor when punter Matt Dodge punted the ball straight to DeSean Jackson, who proceeded to run the ball back for a TD, with zero time on the clock and giving the Eagles the win. My jaw dropped and I could not believe what I had just saw. If the Giants miss the playoffs this season it is their own fault. It’s really horrible that they lost this game today and it will be something that could take years to get over, if ever.

The Giants travel to Wisconsin next weekend to face the Green Bay Packers at 4:15 PM EST in a game that should prove to be a great one with playoff implications.

Let’s take a look at some of my notes from the game.

- QB Eli Manning had a good game today and controlled the offense most of the game. He finished with 289 yards 4 TD’s and 1 INT.

- RB Ahmad Bradshaw contributed on some key plays and finished with 66 yards.

- WR Mario Manningham was thought to have an injury today but had a great day. He finished with 113 yards and 2 TD’s.

- WR Hakeem Nicks continued to roll since his return and finished with 63 yards and 1 TD.

- RB Brandon Jacobs got involved in the offense today and finished with 34 yards.

- TE Kevin Boss had a few nice catches and finished with 59 yards and 1 TD.

- WR Derek Hagan got into the game and made a few catches. He finished with 36 yards.

- DE Justin Tuck played like a madman today and gets my game ball. He led all defensive tacklers and finished with 1.5 sacks.

- S Antrel Rolle continues to show why he was the most important addition to the team in recent years.

- DE Osi Umenyiora had more of an impact on the game then the stats show with some play disruptions.

- K Lawrence Tynes continues to have a solid season by making all of his FG attempts (1) and extra point attempts (4).

- DE Dave Tollefson left the game with a knee injury and did not return.

- P Matt Dodge had a decent game but is still an inconsistent punter by NFL standards. The kid made a horrible punt to DeSean Jackson at the end of the game that was returned for a TD.

- The Giants offensive line was shaky in the first quarter but then returned to form to close out the game. They gave up 2 sacks.

- The Giants defense was all over the field today. They are playing like the second ranked defense that they are. They finished with 3 sacks, 1 INT and 1 forced fumble.

- The Giants special teams continues to be the biggest disappointment of the 2010 season. Today was horrible because they gave up an on-side kick possession and punt return for a TD.

- DC Perry Fewell has done a masterful job in containing QB Michael Vick in both divisional games with the Eagles this year.

New York Giants Stranded in Kansas City

December 11, 2010

The New York Giants had to make an unplanned landing in Kansas City today. Their plan left from Newark earlier this morning, but was rerouted to Kansas City when a blizzard hit Minneapolis. ESPN’s Matt Mosley has been providing updates on ESPN’s NFC East blog.

Word is that the G-Men will spend the night in Kansas City and make the reported 1 hour trip for their 1 P.M. start tomorrow morning. The players are said to be in good spirits and Justin Tuck has even been quoted as having said “I bet we end up having a walk-through in one of the hangars”. Hard to tell if he is kidding or not with Coughlin calling the shots.

The league has made no indication as to intentions to move the game back at all, but I am sure they are closley watching how the storm develops and whether or not the team will be able to make it out tomorrow. This will be an interesting developing story to watch; lets just hope it doesn’t affect the players concentration or the way they play against the Vikings on Sunday. In a game that Big Blue is expected to win, and must win, the Giants will need to be focused and sharp as Brett Favre goes for his 298th straight start (he hopes at least) and Eli Manning goes for his 100th straight consecutive start. The Boys in Blue will have some help as Hakeem Nicks, Steve Smith, and David Dehil all hope to return to the field.

We will continue to monitor the situation and try to provide details as they come in.

- STORY UPDATE: The New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings game has been moved to Monday night (12-13-10) on FOX at 8 PM EST. It is unclear if the game will air in markets outside of New York and Minnesota areas, the NFL is working on it.
