Will The New York Giants Win A Game This Season?

After witnessing another painful New York Giants loss against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday (25-14 final score), it remains unclear how the team will be able to win a game. The Giants led, 14-10, entering the fourth quarter with impressive momentum before they were manhandled in the final period, 15-0. Interestingly, it was the first time they lost when leading after three quarters since Dec. 3, 2012 at Washington, where their 16-10 lead dissolved into a 17-16 defeat. The Giants had won their previous eight games when leading after three quarters. Considering the initial hype about the Giants being legitimate contenders in the NFL East, they are not close to playing up to those standards. Here are several observations regarding the Giants defeat on Sunday:
1. Don’t Blame Eli: Looking back at Manning’s stats for the game, he completed 26 out of 39 passes (67%) and threw for 277 passing yards and two touchdowns. Despite throwing two interceptions, Manning played surprisingly well as his total quarterbac

Giants punter’s Twitter account hacked by Eagles fan?

It’s no secret that New York Giants punter Steve Weatherford has one of the NFL’s most active Twitter accounts. On Tuesday, his followers were stunned when he posted, “The Giants are stink and I’m no good! Fly eagles fly!”It didn’t take long for everyone to surmise that the out of character tweet presumably came from a Philadelphia Eagles fan who hacked into Weatherford’s Twitter account and not the punter himself.I’m just guessing but the “Fly eagles fly!” probably gave it away.It didn’t take long for Weatherford to let everyone know that he had been hacked.Sorry folks, I was hacked. I think it’s time for new password. My apologies.— Steve Weatherford (@Weatherford5) September 16, 2014But even that didn’t stop his followers from having a little fun with the phony tweet.

Five NFL coaches who are feeling the heat right about now

This NFL season is only two weeks old but some coaches are already feeling the heat. Most of the coaches on the hot seat will be fired at the end of the season. Some might even be fired midseason. The season is still young so it is tough to say how many NFL coaches will be fired but so far we have a pretty good idea of who has a chance to be let go. Some of these coaches were even rumored to be fired last offseason but the teams kept them. Here are five coaches who are on the hot seat two weeks into the season. Tom CoughlinWhen is Tom Coughlin not rumored to be fired? Seems like after every game the New York papers are saying to fire Coughlin. Many people thought after he won his second super bowl in 2011 against the New England Patriots, Coughlin would ride off into the sunset and retire. Tom had other ideas and wanted to lead the New York Giants to a third super bowl. The last two seasons have not gone according to plan for Coughlin. Last year the Giants finished 7-9. They also st…

Jon Beason out indefinitely after re-injuring his foot

Rich Kane/Icon SportswireThe New York Giants released some bad news on Tuesday that linebacker Jon Beason re-injured his foot and would be out indefinitely.
Beason will head back to Charlotte to see the foot specialist. #Giants are calling it a re-aggrivation of his previous injury. No timetable
— Conor Orr (@ConorTOrr) September 16, 2014

I would imagine the Jameel McClain will take over the middle and rookie Devon Kennard could end up starting on the outside.
I wouldn’t expect Beason back until maybe late November or December, if then.

Fantasy football sleepers: The case for Larry Donnell

In the wake of injuries to top fantasy tight ends Jordan Cameron and Jordan Reed, in addition to the injured fantasy contributor Mercedes Lewis, it is safe to assume one or two teams in your league may be in the market for a healthy tight end in week 3.
After leading the New York Giants in receptions and receiving yards for the second consecutive week, tight end Larry Donnell may easily become one of the trendiest waiver wire additions in the next week.
While Antonio Gates and Niles Paul stole headlines after strong week 2 performances, Donnell is quietly setting himself up to be the best long-term fantasy option at the tight end position.
By all accounts, Donnell has won the starting tight end position through his play in the early part of the season.
Even in a struggling offense, he has become one of the top pass catchers in New York. At 6’6″ Donnell is one of the team’s go-to options in the redzone, making him a threat to score in every game. The Giants have made an effort to using Don

Giants: Jon Beason to miss extended time

Linebacker Jon Beason is expected to miss an extended period of time after re-aggravating a toe injury that left him out for all of training camp reports ESPN New York.
Beason is awaiting the results of an MRI but signs are pointing to the 29-year-old as being questionable for Week 3.
The Giants would have to use Jameel McClain as his replacement. Though two games Beason has been in on four tackles this season. The former Carolina Panther has not played in a full 16 game season since 2009.

Eli Manning’s Career in Jeopardy as a New York Giant?

This 0-2 start by the New York Giants comes to no surprise, as many experts predicted they will be a total mess this year. There’s a lot of blame to go around, but in fans eyes they look at the quarterback of the franchise and that’s Eli Manning.Eli Manning has been a shell of himself for the past two years, and he just seems like he’s in the decline at 33 years of age. His contract expires after 2015 where he’s owed a whopping $17 million. After that he’s a free agent and can sign with any team he wants. But the real question is are the New York Giants going to keep him?In my opinion the New York Giants and Eli Manning will cut ties very soon. With another bad season owners John Mara and Steve Tisch are going to have to clean house from top to bottom. As a New York Giants fan, we aren’t that good. We have to face that and think about the next move the team should  make at quarterback. That’s the writing on the wall and the reality for this team.People might say that it’s too soon t…

Walter Thurmond out for season with torn pectoral

The New York Giants will be without cornerback Walter Thurmond for the rest of the season. Thurmond, who was signed in March as a free agent, is set to undergo surgery for a torn pectoral. Thurmond finishes the season with four tackles.  He had 33 total tackles, a sack and an interception last season with the Seattle Seahawks. The Giants hope to get the 23-year-old Jayron Hosley back from suspension this week if the league’s new drug policy goes through.

Jon Beason will undergo an MRI on his foot, doesn’t sound good

Rich Kane/Icon SportswireIt sounds like Giants linebacker Jon Beason may have re-injured the same foot he injured back in June that forced him to miss the entire preseason.
NYG LB Jon Beason to have MRI tomorrow on toe. Injury appears to be same area as June injury, but severity not known yet. Concern, clearly.
— Kimberly Jones (@KimJonesSports) September 14, 2014

The last thing the Giants need is to lose Beason. He’s become one of their vocal leaders since arriving from Carolina last season.
