Who knows what was said to turn things around at halftime of this big Giants win? Justin Tuck, because he said it: “I told ‘em that I was playing like c**p, I told ‘em that we was playing like c**p, and that, you know, in the second half, we gotta pick it up.” Good to Read More
Magnificent. As badly, as listlessly as the Giants moped through a horrible first half against Jacksonville, they played a second half that was as crisp, as emotional, as thrilling as any in recent memory. It took a little bit of luck, in the form of a tipped David Gerrard pass that turned into a Terrell Read More
When Tom Coughlin is off to a slightly premature retirement in 2011, he might look back on this game and wonder “what if?” What if his defense had decided to show up and actually play the Jaguars? Right now, it’s a 30-minute playoff game for the Giants. Let’s see if they rise to the challenge.
Is it too early to call today’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars a must win? Probably not, seeing as your Giants Talk blogger pointed to this one as such six weeks ago. A loss today could put the Giants two games behind the division lead and three games away from the top seed in the Read More
Two straight losses. The second-half swoon, a disturbing constant in the Tom Coughlin era, seemingly in full swing. Once again, the New York Giants enter the home stretch of the season asking: what do we do now? This year, it’s not on the coaching staff.

It was a lovely week for Michael Vick and the dirty Philadelphia Eagles in the wake of their 59-28 thrashing of the Redskins Monday night. Vick’s 400-plus yard, six-TD performance against the Redskins in the rain put the football world on notice that he and the dirty Eagles are a force to be reckoned with, Read More
Your Giants Talk Blogger recently estimated that the New York Giants would need to finish with a record of 10-6 or better to reach the playoffs. Given the action since then, how well is that estimate holding up? Let’s take the NFC West out of the mix for the time being. Chances are Seattle, St. Read More
Bad news on the injury front: Six Giants, including five offensive starters, did not practice yesterday. The dirty Eagles, meanwhile, had only one player who did not practice. Given that the absence of Steve Smith, Shaun O’Hara and David Diehl and the shaky returns of William Beatty and Kevin Boothe led to a disjointed offensive Read More
It was a weird game. Then the lights went out. Then things got really strange. Hats off to Carrot Top Garrett and the hated 2-7 Cowboys, who rolled into New Meadowlands and issued a thorough 33-20 beatdown on the 6-3 Giants. The Cowboys made it look easy, as players who just a week prior couldn’t Read More
