  • Giants Have to Make a Run at Bill Belichick Amid Patriots Strife

    01/05/2018 2:03:20 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 26 replies
    It is, for now, a pipe dream that Giants fans can’t help but smoke: Bill Belichick in a blue hoodie standing on the sidelines at MetLife Stadium, chants of “Dee-Fense” erupting everywhere, reminding him of the way it was at Giants Stadium when Harry Carson owned the point of attack and Lawrence Taylor roared around the edge to terrify quarterbacks, providing cover for Eli Manning or Davis Webb or rookie Josh Rosen. SNIP But if you are the Giants … you damn well should throw it.
  • Why Eli Manning got benched, explained in 2 minutes

    The New York Giants benched Eli Manning on Tuesday afternoon. Perhaps you heard. Manning has been the face of the franchise since 2004, starting every game since Week 11 that year, 210 of them plus another 10 playoff games and two Super Bowls (that they won). It was shocking to hear that Manning would not be under center for the 2-9 Giants when they take the field on Sunday against the Raiders.
  • Al Michaels: Giants coming off a worse week than Harvey Weinstein

    Do you believe in pitiful? Renowned sports broadcaster Al Michaels awkwardly injected Harvey Weinstein’s ongoing sexual assault scandal into NBC’s Giants-Broncos telecast Sunday night, comparing the Hollywood bigwig’s transgressions to the level of turmoil the Giants had experienced this past week. The Giants lost four starting receivers to injury in their loss to the Chargers last week, including season-ending injuries to Odell Beckham Jr., Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris. The Giants also suspended Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie indefinitely after a meeting between Rodgers-Cromartie and coach Ben McAdoo. “I mean, let’s face it. The Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey...
  • Y.A. Tittle, Hall of Famer and Giants legend, dead at 90

    NY Post ^ | 9 October 2017 | AP
    Known as “The Bald Eagle” as much for his sturdy leadership as his prematurely receding hairline, Tittle played 17 seasons of pro football. He began with the All-America Football Conference’s Baltimore Colts in 1948 and finished with the NFL’s New York Giants. He played 10 years in between with the San Francisco 49ers, but had his greatest success in New York, leading the Giants to three division titles in four years in a remarkable late-career surge.
  • Odell Beckham among four injured Giants receivers

    The worst-case scenario has arrived for the New York Giants. With four minutes remaining in the fourth quarter against the Chargers, Odell Beckham Jr. landed awkwardly after attempting to catch a high slant pass and left the field in a trainer's cart. Wincing in pain, Beckham covered his face as the cart left the field. The injury was to his left ankle, which was trapped against the ground on the play. So it goes for the Giants, who already saw Brandon Marshall, Dwayne Harris and Sterling Shepard ruled out -- and possibly longer. On the next play following Beckham's injury,...

    The alarming Giants season may be going full disaster. Odell Beckham Jr. was carted off the field in the closing minutes of Sunday’s home game against the Chargers, the team’s fourth (and best) wide receiver to be hurt on the day. Beckham went down on a pass that fell incomplete with about 4 minutes left in the game, the Giants up 22-20 at the time. He rose for the catch then came down awkwardly, his leg appearing to get caught under cornerback Casey Howard. Beckham was carted off, tears flowing as the Giants’ 0-4 season could be over already....

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who is also an avid Dallas Cowboys fan, believes New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning is lying about his role in an alleged memorabilia scandal. Serving as a guest host on Friday's Boomer & Carton radio show for WFAN, Christie spoke about Manning's situation by calling him a "liar" and "he got caught," per Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News. Kaja Whitehouse and Bruce Golding of the New York Post reported Manning was involved in a scheme selling fake game-used memorabilia, with court documents showing the Giants quarterback sent an email to equipment...

    A little crazy is an appropriate description of what went down in a truly strange and ultimately rewarding showing for the Giants. They could do almost nothing with the ball but thwarted the Cowboys’ precision attack so relentlessly and completely it was enough to overcome the failings of Manning and Co. When the harassing of Dak Prescott was complete and his final pass was ruled incomplete to struggling Dez Bryant — who in his nightmares will see Janoris Jenkins — the Giants had a stunning 10-7 victory to show for themselves.

    So Conor Gillaspie in 2016 is Marco Scutaro from 2012 or Travis Ishikawa from 2014 or Cody Ross from 2010, at least for one enormous Wild-Card game and that means it could go on and on again… And Madison Bumgarner in 2016 is… Madison Bumgarner, the perpetual postseason legend. That’s a two-paragraph summary of the Giants’ scintillating 3-0 Wild-Card victory over the Mets tonight, and yes, obviously, the patterns and connections from the previous three Giants postseason trips are impossible to ignore. You know who probably understands this better than anybody? That’d be the Cubs, who now face the Giants...

    The Mets pulled themselves back from the ledge of defeat many times: With Curtis Granderson’s wall-slamming catch in the sixth inning, with Syndergaard’s guile in a seventh-inning jam, and with Reed’s escape in the eighth. But Bumgarner would not be overcome. Bumgarner fired a complete-game shutout on 119 pitches. The Mets never got a runner to third base. As the taut game stretched on, it was clear the Mets were in trouble when Familia began to struggle. He blew three saves in the World Series last season, but his pitching was a reason the Mets had made it this far...

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Longtime San Francisco Giants third baseman Jim Ray Hart has died. He was 74. The Giants announced Hart's death Friday, saying he passed away Thursday in Acampo, California, following a long illness. Hart played 11 seasons for the Giants from 1963-73. He also spent parts of two seasons with the New York Yankees before retiring in 1974.

    SAN DIEGO – The Los Angeles Angels sought out a character reference on Tim Lincecum. They did not need to think twice about whom to call. “They asked my opinion,” said Bengie Molina, “and I gave it to them straight-up.” For all that Lincecum accomplished with Buster Posey, he always talks in glowing terms about Molina as the catcher who shepherded him as he broke into the big leagues, became his friend and support network besides his batterymate, and channeled his talents when he was at the height of his powers. While Molina does not hold an official title with...

    n the northern region of ancient Egypt, a large obelisk has been found, which is said to be the biggest ever discovered. The stone quarries in Aswan house, which is an unfinished obelisk, has mad scientists pull their hair out and cause a permanent denial for historians. A discovery like this is likely to split the academic community in two. Archaeologists are now arguing that the female pharaoh who where also known Hatshepsut, did actually sanction its construction. Of course, modern engineers, who are clearly in massive opposition, say that the Dynastic Egyptians did not have the type of technology...

    A Colorado man says he was kicked out of a baseball game after he tossed a home run ball back onto the field. Brandon Sanchez told KDVR that he, his wife and stepsons were enjoying the Colorado Rockies-San Francisco Giants game Tuesday night when the Giants hit a home run. The home run ball landed in Sanchez's hands. Although his stepsons were excited, Sanchez said he couldn't care less. “I threw the ball back just because it was San Francisco’s home run and I wanted the Story home run ball,” he said, referring to Rockies rookie shortstop Trevor Story.

    The Iroquois, the Osage, the Tuscaroras, the Hurons, the Omahas, and many other North American Indians all speak of giant men who once lived and roamed in the territories of their forefathers. All over what is now the U.S. are traditions of these ancient giants. Over 1000 accounts of seven-foot and taller skeletons have reportedly been unearthed from ancient burial sites over a two-hundred-year period in North America. Newspaper accounts, town and county histories, letters, scientific journals, diaries, photos and Smithsonian ethnology reports have carefully documented this. These skeletons have been reported from coast to coast with strange anatomic anomalies...

    The Left's highly selective application of today's standards to yesterday's heroes. The latest round of condemning the past on the moral criteria of the present started with banning the Confederate flag from public places. Now it is on to airbrushing away progressive old white guy Woodrow Wilson, in Trotskyized fashion, from public commemoration. But do those on the Left realize that they are rapidly becoming captives to the consequences of their own ideology? Their current effort to rewrite the past is doomed to failure for a variety of reasons. Left-Wing Hypocrisy First, this damnation of memory is not a balanced...
