T-Rock's Take on the Giants
If the Giants are looking to replace Osi Umenyiora in free agency, they may have the inside track on Dwight Freeney.
Talking on SiriusXM NFL Radio on Wednesday, Freeney, who will be a free agent in March, said he grew up a Giants fan and that it “would be a dream” to play for the team and that coming back home to New York “is definitely attractive.”
Good to know.
Of course, Freeney...Read more »
Apparently, Terrell Thomas did not think he would play for Tom Coughlin again. It wasn’t that Thomas thought he would not come back to the Giants after a third ACL injury cost him the 2012 season. It’s that he didn’t think Coughlin would.
In an interview Tuesday morning on NFL AM, the cornerback said he figured Coughlin would retire after the 2012 season.
“I thought it was this season,”...Read more »
It’s Presidents’ Day, so what better time to come up with an All-Presidential team comprised of Giants who share the same last names as our Commanders-in-Chief. Some of them are all-time greats – Lawrence Taylor, for instance, who, like Zachary Taylor, had some memorable battles against Native Amaericans (or, as we call them these days, Washington Redskins) – while many others (like several Presidents)...Read more »
Insurance? A replacement? A bargaining-chip? It’s hard to tell what the Giants see David Buehler as. Other than the obvious: the newest kicker on their roster.
With Lawrence Tynes about to become a free agent, the Giants have signed a kicker who could wind up being his replacement and at any rate signals that the team may not be expecting Tynes to return. Buehler, who was with the Cowboys...Read more »
David Diehl pleaded guilty this morning in Queens Criminal Court to charges of aggravated driving while intoxicated and impaired driving that stem from an incident that took place in Queens last summer, according to multiple reports.
The Giants lineman was drunk and bounced his black BMW off several parked cars on an Astoria Street following a Euro Cup soccer match between Croatia and Ireland...Read more »
When I woke up this morning to the headlines that read “Pope Resigns,” there were two thoughts that crossed my mind. The first was I wondered who the Giants would get to replace him, and the second was I wondered why the resignation of a tight ends coach was making such a big splash on national and international news desks.
I have since learned that the Pope in “Pope Resigns” is the actual...Read more »
Michael Boley was on WFAN this morning to talk about being a former Giant, and he continued with the same tone that was expressed by other recently departed players who have seen their time with Big Blue cut short due to salary cap considerations.
Much like Chris Canty and Ahmad Bradshaw, Boley was enthusiastic in his praise for what he called a “top-notch organization.”
“I very much...Read more »
Chris Canty and Ahmad Bradshaw were both released by the Giants today, and both gave radio interviews that showed the kind of class they have. While either could have bemoaned the team’s decision to cut them and griped about being shown the door just a year after winning a Super Bowl, both instead had nothing but kind words for the organization.
“This is part of the business,” Bradshaw said...Read more »
NEW ORLEANS -- Michael Strahan could be voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, and two of his most prized pupils believe that’s where he belongs.
“Is that even a question if he’s going to get in?” Osi Umenyiora asked this week. “He better get in or there’s going to be some furniture moving.”
Justin Tuck was similarly certain.
“If (his name) is not called, it will...Read more »
NEW ORLEANS -- When I look back on the Giants’ season, there’s one play that always sticks out to me. It was a deep post pass from Eli Manning to Hakeem Nicks in the Atlanta game at the end of the first quarter.
The Giants had fallen behind 14-0 and on a first-and-10 from the 20, Eli threw a bomb down the middle and it looked like Nicks, who had gotten behind the coverage, was going to be...Read more »
