NEW YORK – Hello Giants fans, I would like to wish you all a Happy St. Patricks Day! Even if you’re not irish, it doesn’t matter. They say everyone is irish on St. Paddy’s Day, so I hope you all enjoy yourselves and have a great time today. Some might be with family watching a game on TV or with friends out at a bar. I have done just about everything you can imagine on St. Patricks Day and have always had fun. I’m sure I will have a beer or two today and watch the Knicks play the Pacers in their green jerseys. It’s awesome that it falls on a weekend, so people will have time for a nice breakfast and day of rest tomorrow on Sunday. Chicago will turn the river green and many other fun things will be happening all over the country. Beware the Green Man!
The Giants signed P Steve Weatherford to a five year deal this week. I love this signing and this punter. I expect a big season from him and would love to see former Giants punter Jeff Feagles, coaching special teams for Big Blue. I think Feagles and Weatherford would hit it off and make a good team. I understand that QB Peyton Manning wants to finish his career with enough numbers to be considered the all-time greatest quarterback in history. He would love to get another ring too. But why not as a coach? I would love to see the Giants give Manning a five year deal as QB coach and see what happens. I think Peyton would win at least one more ring with the Big Blue coaching staff.
The Giants also signed safety Chris Horton, who once played for the Washington Redskins. He is a guy described as having injury issues. I say welcome to New York and people should give him the benefit of the doubt that he is healed. Horton is mostly expected to help out on special teams. I find it interesting that former Dallas TE Martellus Bennett, will be wearing current free agent TE Kevin Boss’ old number, No.89. The tight end group and cornerback group have been thoroughly addressed so far. In a side story, former Giants players got into a twitter war when WR Amani Toomer took acceptation with a comment TE Jeremy Shockey made about possibly returning to the Giants one day in the near future? They will be fine but I doubt either will play for Big Blue again.
I know there will be a lot of people drinking today and having fun. Be smart and safe when you go out and remember there are kids walking around, don’t drink and drive and ruin your life. Have fun but be smart. Take a cab or have someone pick you up if you’re too drunk to drive. It only takes one phone call and it could save your life or someone else’s. Today is your lucky day!

Hey Rob, hope you’re having a great day!
Are you kidding about Peyton being the coach for Eli? Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisaged such a situation! Then again, this is football so anything could happen!
Thanks pat and the same to you and yours. That would be a wild situation right? The Manning Brothers plotting for rings in New York, it’s like a Frank Miller novel. lol.

no luck of the irish for me buddy.i broke my right arm falling off a ladder yesterday.i have get it cast on monday,but im learning to type lefty.but im on injured reserve for 10 weeks,but i should be ready for season lol.i fell 15 feet and i guess i was lucky that i just broke my arm.it was my humorous bone broke clean in half,but there was nothing humorous about it lol.lots of time to talk nygiants football.
Holy Cow Bobby! I’m sorry to hear that man, are you ok? That’s crazy. I hope you’re feeling better and relaxing today. The first week will be the most uncomfortable, then it will get better as it goes on. The bright side is that this happened during the offseason, so your typing hand will be better by the regular season lol all kidding aside, I hope you feel better soon buddy.
