T-Rock's Take on the Giants
Tom Coughlin is still ticked at the tocks.
The Giants coach was once again wondering aloud – this time with a little more of an accusatory tone – how the Cowboys managed to squeeze three offensive plays into the final 10 seconds of play in Sunday’s game at Cowboys Stadium.
“As I mentioned (Sunday), the longest 10 seconds I’ve ever been around,” Coughlin said Monday in a conference call....Read more »
The Giants beat the Cowboys. And then they beat Sandy.
After hustling out of the locker room and onto their charter flight back home following last night’s thrilling 29-24 victory over the Cowboys, the Giants managed to make the trip in just about three hours, landing safely – if not without a few bumps due to heavy winds – at Newark International Airport at around 1:15 a.m.

Last week he celebrated by going Gangnam Style. This week Jason Pierre-Paul went with NBA style.
The Giants’ defensive end celebrated his 28-yard interception return for a touchdown by throwing down a tremendous slam dunk on the crossbar.
“It was just something I did,” he said when asked if the move was premeditated. “I didn’t know what to do when I was in the end zone, so I just did...Read more »
Giants coach Tom Coughlin said that running back Ahmad Bradshaw, who has been dealing with a chronic foot injury, had limited participation in practice Friday and “did OK,” so Bradshaw was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game at Dallas. During the brief period when reporters were allowed to watch practice, Bradshaw either stood or knelt on the sideline, helmet in hand, with a brace on his right...Read more »
Martellus Bennett said he won’t have any special emotions when he walks into Cowboys Stadium as a visiting player for the first time on Sunday. In fact, he said, there’s really nothing special about the stadium at all.
“They have a nice stadium,” the tight end said. “They have the big ol’ TV and everything. But at the same time it’s just another field to play on. No matter where we play we...Read more »

As Robert Griffin III converted a fourth-and-10 from deep in Redskins territory on Sunday, the television cameras cut to Perry Fewell on the sideline. The defensive coordinator was doing about the only thing he could do at that moment.
He was grinning and shaking his head.
“If I did what I wanted to do, I don’t think it would be made for TV,” Fewell said.
Of course there is very...Read more »
While Ahmad Bradshaw sat on the stationary bike watching practice, there was actually some good news taking place on the field.
Kenny Phillips, who injured his knee early in the Week 3 game against the Eagles, returned to practice and was participating in individual drills for the first time since his injury. He did not appear to be physically limited in any way, back-peddling and running...Read more »
Tom Coughlin said last week that he didn’t want Ahmad Bradshaw to go back to being a once-a-week guy in practice. Now it seems like the Giants will be lucky if they get him once this week.
The starting running back was sidelined for the second straight practice with a foot injury that occurred late in the 49ers game. He played through it against the Redskins, but has since been on the exercise...Read more »
It’s well-established by now that the Giants play their best when they have their backs to the wall, when no one believes in them, when they are teetering on the verge disaster.
Now, though, they have a new problem: Prosperity.
The Giants are 5-2, are considered to be among the best teams in the NFL, have a quarterback who is in MVP chatter, a star receiver who everyone (but the Giants...Read more »
