Michael Boley: “We take pride in getting to quarterbacks,” Boley said. “If […] [Read More]

Post-Game Report: Giants 28, Lions 20

on
Yes, it was a beautiful day. Yes, the game played out almost exactly according to script, if not for the increasingly worrisome bumblefingers of P Matt Dodge. No, the New Meadowlands Stadium is not as bad as early reports made it out to be, but nor does it look like they dropped $1.6 billion on […] [Read More]

A Trap Game?

Post-game Report: Giants 34, Texans 10

on
Things are looking up for the New York Giants. Sunday’s 34-10 win over the Houston Texans was the most complete game the Giants have played since 2008.

End of the 3rd: Giants 27, Texans 10

on
Bad play calling by a pass-happy Kevin Gilbride and bad execution by a pass-happy Eli Manning gives the Texans a glimmer of hope. Giants went back to the run and things seemed to stabilize. Nice FG by Tynes with new holder Sage Rosenfels. Hang on – the last quarter could get ugly. [Read More]
