NEW YORK – That was one heck of a way to end a great season. The Giants defeat the New England Patriots 21-17 in Indianapolis. It took a fourth quarter comeback to win a second Super Bowl for Big Blue as QB Eli Manning wins his second Super Bowl MVP Award. Most seem to agree this win puts Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, you can include myself among them. There really is no way to describe the joy I’m feeling now and will feel for a very long time. I’m stuck someplace between numb and bursting with energy. Some where in between shocked and exhausted. I’m running on empty but so happy that it doesn’t matter at this point. The true blue fans have been waiting and anticipating this moment and when it finally arrives, it’s wonderful. So enjoy it!
Thank you to the New York Giants organization including the Mara and Tisch families. Thank you to Head Coach Tom Coughlin, the rest of the coaches and players. Thank you GM Jerry Reese, who has done an outstanding job, since taking over for Giants legend Ernie Accorsi. Go back and read all of my articles about Mr. Reese and you will see I have always been a fan of his work and have praised his draft skills and player transactions. Some of his moves however, had even me scratching my head this past offseason. In the NFL Lockout riddled 2011 year, players were coming and going at will in the NFL and the G-men lost some key players like WR Steve Smith, TE Kevin Boss, C Shaun O’Hara and OL Rich Seubert to retirement or contract situations. Then they lost CB Terrell Thomas, LB Clint Sintim, OT William Beatty, WR Domenik Hixon, LB Jonathan Goff and about ten more guys to the dreaded IR list (injured reserve). 2011 marks three straight years of injury epidemics for the G-men with at least 12 going on the season ending IR list, per year, that’s about 20% of the team going down for three straight years. But the Giants and Jerry Reese made all the right moves that had this team clicking by the end of the season. Congrats you are now Super Bowl Champions!
I thought singers Kelly Clarkson and Madonna did a good job with their respective areas of the nights entertainment. I thought NBC could have done a better job with the trophy presentation and post game stuff but thats why we have remote controls right? I also noticed audio problems coming from the NBC channel during the game. I suggest that Giants fans out there savor this moment and really enjoy this win for a couple of days. Do not get into any talks about the draft or who is signing what contract and when, just relax for a few days and enjoy winning the Super Bowl.

NEW YORK – Giants fans were treated to a sweet victory today as the G-Men beat down the Atlanta Falcons 24-2 at MetLife stadium. The first playoff victory in the new stadium’s short history. I hope our readers missed me, as I took a much needed break from writing this past week to recover from the holidays. I was hoping to bring our readers some good news today and the Giants came through for us. It seems like the Giants continue to turn things up a notch each week because this was another fun game to watch as a fan. The Giants offense gave up a safety in the second quarter but the Giants defense literally shut out a very good offense.
The first quarter started out sluggish and there were a ton of three and outs for both teams. I really thought this would turn out to be a dull defensive battle with little scoring. Before the game, I predicted a Giants win by the score of 35-31. I thought this would be a much more competitive game then it turned out to be. Neither team scored in the first quarter and the second quarter saw a rare safety against Big Blue and a Hakeem Nicks TD reception. The Giants took a bizarre 7-2 lead into the locker room at halftime and had all of the momentum on their side. That TD would be all of the points the Giants would need to win, as the defense simply mauled the Falcons all day and refused to give up any first downs. Even as the Falcons attempted to make two 4th and 1 first downs, the fierce Giants defense simply were not having it today and shut them out. If you weren’t a believer in the Giants yet, you should be now.
The Giants will play the Green Bay Packers at 4:30 PM EST next weekend in Green Bay. It’s deja vu all over again!
Let’s take a look at some of my notes from the game.
QB Eli Manning – Manning continued his elite march on opponents finishing with 277 yards 3 TD’s and 0 INT’s.
WR Hakeem Nicks – Nicks showed why he is a number one WR today by exploding for 115 yards and 2 TD’s. Nice game Hakeem!
RB Ahmad Bradshaw – AB is a nasty runner. He is simply a tough guy out there and finished with 63 yards.
DE Justin Tuck – The defensive leader was making plays all over the field and clogging up holes out there.
LB Michael Boley – Boley continued his stellar play against his former team and seems to instinctively know where the ball is going to be.
WR Mario Manningham – Super Mario had a solid game today and it was nice to see him back in the mix. He finished with 68 yards and 1 TD.
DT Rocky Bernard – Rocky had a nice game in the middle and finished with 1 sack. It seemed like every defensive player was putting in work today and celebrating good plays.
S Antrel Rolle – The hard hitting Rolle was second on the team in tackles and once again made himself useful all over the field.
DE Jason Pierre-Paul – You down with JPP? The Beast lead all defensive tacklers despite multiple double teams. He cannot be contained.
RB Brandon Jacobs – Jacobs must have woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning because he was running like a mad man and finished with 92 yards.
DE Osi Umenyiora – I’m going to make new towels for fans that read ‘Pay Osi’! He had another good game and finished with 1 sack.
CB Corey Webster – Webster has been solid all year and once again had a good game. He was getting into scuffles with Falcons WR Roddy White, who was clearly frustrated.
WR Victor Cruz – Cruz was getting double teamed and mugged all day. All that did was free up Nicks and Manningham. Pick your poison.
LB Jacquian Williams – Williams was once again in the top five for Big Blue tacklers. This outstanding rookie has become one of my favorite players.
S Kenny Phillips – Phillips was doing his thing out there and creeping. He made some big hits and continues to be a leader for the DB’s.
LB Chase Blackburn – Blackburn has really been making a difference on the field and I cannot say it enough, I’m glad he is back.
RB DJ Ware – Ware was running hard as usual but left the game with a concussion and did not return.
CB Aaron Ross – Ross was very active in todays game but also left the game with a concussion and did not return.
TE Jake Ballard – Ballard had a couple of catches for 16 yards in his return to the field. I expect him to be more active next week against the Packers.
P Steve Weatherford – I really hope the Giants lock down Weatherford with a long term contract. A punter with his attitude and demeanor is a perfect for New York.
K Lawrence Tynes – Tynes missed a FG again and made one. He also made all three of his extra point attempts. It may be time to say goodbye.
Giants Defense – Two words, completely dominating.
Giants Offense – The offense has been extremely productive the past few weeks and they are coming together at the perfect time.
Giants Special Teams – This group still makes me shake my head and I expect big improvements after the season, if not sooner.

After taking a look at the defensive tackle position today, I am convinced that the New York Giants will take a DT by the 5th pick of this years NFL Draft. The Giants currently have six defensive tackles. The two that I see starting by the beginning of the 2010 season are Barry Cofield and Chris Canty as the starters. Jay Alford, is a more then capable (could start on most teams) backup and fill in. Alford is followed by Rocky Bernard who has something to prove to his fans and the team. This is a make or break year for Bernard in New York and I hope he does well. I don’t know much about the other two, Anthony Bryant and the rookie Dwayne Hendricks. They are both young DT’s and will remain on the team if the coaches see something.
The question marks here are simple. Will Chris Canty live up to his potential in New York and become a legend? or will he play half the year and sit half the year injured? Only time will tell. I am rooting for him to do well because without his part of the puzzle completed, the rest might be in for a struggle. Jay Alford can handle his business and slash to the quarterback abruptly. Fans are eager to see how he returns from his season ending injury last year. Rocky Bernard needs to get back to playing football. If all of these guys are healthy and can do their jobs, the Giants will be fine. Bryant and Hendricks will have to make some noise and get recognized before I can say anything about these two young players. Other then Rocky Bernard, with eight years of NFL experience, the rest of the defensive tackles have no more then 5 years of NFL experience. This is also an area where the Giants are getting younger.
In my opinion, the New York Giants will draft a defensive tackle in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. If not, then a DT will be drafted in the fifth round at the latest. I think Bryant and Hendricks are fighting for a fifth spot on the roster, with one of them eventually being cut. I see Rocky Bernard as possible trade material. A lot of fans were very disappointed with Bernard’s first year in New York. What do you think about the current New York Giants defensive tackle situation and who do you see as a possible draft pick at the DT position during the mid-rounds?
Here is a list of the current New York Giants defensive tackles:
1. Barry Cofield #96
2. Jay Alford #93
3. Chris Canty #99
4. Rocky Bernard #95
5. Anthony Bryant #75
6. Dwayne Hendricks #74
