just did a quick google search on alex mack and franchise tag. I come across an article that will just make you irate. Baas is the 2nd highest paid center in the league coming in at 2.2 mil less than RYAN KALIL and making 1 mil more than MANGOLD!?! WTF! Baas' agent is the greatest in the world, and Reese is the biggest sucker to pay a pumpkin head POS that much money when the guy never did anything in San Fran and has sucked here.
2 weeks, 1 day ago on NFL Offseason Observations
Signing Baas to that contract is maddening. Sums up Reese's moves as GM. I think the "In Reese We Trust" mantra went out the window a long time ago.
Baas, Canty, Beatty signing, etc... there's many more to list. Worst is the Martellus Bennett deal. Then you sign Myers for a 4 year deal that you probably could've pulled on Marty B the year before when his stock was rock bottom.
The guy doesn't know when to hold em and when to fold em. With Baas being dead money (what a horrific deal that was) I'd assume he will be on the roster in 14.
I'm hoping we draft Ebron or Amaro. We need tight ends. If Dennard is available at 12 I wouldn't mind us taking the best corner in the draft. Watkins won't be there but if he was that would be a steal.
What do you guys think of Mack his stock is through the roof. I think he's athletic as hell, but doesn't have many moves and gets tangled up by bigger OL pretty easily and has a hard time shaking them off. His main move is a bull rush or stutter step. I think he will be good but some people are praising him as possible first overall- Mayock to name a few.
Oh well too bad we're picking 12th when if the POS Lions could've F'en beat us and actually played in a game meaningful to them we'd be picking 8th. We sucked too bad this year to be all the way down at 12th. This team was not a 7-9 team. Thanks Josh Freeman, Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin!
@ultimatenyg It would never happen as the Giants would never in a million years hire the guy, but I'm gonna call Kliff and tell him to go to the Giants. Thing is he's a rockstar at Tech rolling in the college puss building a program and collecting a 10.5 mil 5 yr contract with bonuses.
But that would be awesome to see us run a fast paced up tempo offense similar to the spread. Look at the playoff teams still in the mix now they all implore that style offense sprinkled in with some power running and pro style offensive schemes. But these A-holes don't think outside the box and will hire sullivan. Coughlin doesn't like change. He did in 07 and won a title cause of it. Maybe they have a change of heart and we get a coach that is unable to interview cause he's still in the playoffs. But I'm afraid it will be more of the Irish Mafia.
2 months ago on 10 Years of Coziness with Kevin Gilbride
Great review of a lost season. Best quote I completely agree with you on and don't bother commenting nor reading Big blue view is that Linval Joseph resigning is vital to our defense success. 80% of the morons on that site think we will be fine with Hankins and the rest of the old DT retreads. Linval is the anchor of our defense if they're as foolish to let him go which I fear Reese might this team will suffer greatly.
Today's game was garbage. The most pitiful game I've ever watched and I frequently kept switching over to red zone channel as it was just putrid.
Worst part is everyone will be back including KG after all garbage wins. At least the year before we had one signature win against SF.
Now are draft position is mediocre for how horrific this team is. We will probably Draft a CB like Dennard where we're picking at 12. When we could've had a shot at clone had we lost these last 2 meaningless games. One bright side is Cousins really sucks and I think RG3 is done for good so that'll at least be 2 wins for years to come.

Not only that but it also helps the opposing defense greatly when they're so damn late getting in plays there is no element of surprise in the snap count. Instead they time it exactly to when the clock is about to run out giving them a huge jump on the ball ending up in an Eli sack.
2 months, 2 weeks ago on The Case for Replacing Kevin Gilbride with a new Offensive Coordinator
Their scapegoat is going to be injuries to the o line causing elis down year and the offensive struggles. Shitdrive will still be on the sidelines 2014
3 months ago on SD 37 NYG 14
This is pure frustration and our complaints fall upon deaf ears. Coughlin will be here and he will not fire either Shitbride or Fewell. Maybe Quinn gets the Axe but I doubt that even happens.
Draft an OL u say? Pssh... nonsense Reese will Draft another DL round 1 and a receiver to replace Nicks Round 2. Bass will be wearing blue even though he sucks and is tied with Meyers and Canty for the worst Reese signing ever. Diehl will be kept for the vet min. Snee old dear son in law will get a cap friendly deal. Lber will be ignored cause hey we got Beason now and pay singers beginning to flash some talent.
Don't you guys get it? It's going to take wholesale change as in a new regime top to bottom before we see rookies starting and actually playing to evaluate talent, reasonable drafting not ignoring glaring weaknesses and doing shoddy jobs of picking guys up in FA, and biggest of all us running an offense that utilizes our strengths. A hurry up spread offense that takes advantage of the pass friendly NFL. Slants, screen passes, quick hitches, and most importantly use of the tight end in the red zone. We finally got a little taste of that today but too little too late. Killdrives offense is old and outdated but Coughlin will go down with him and it sure as hell won't be next year. The curse of those 4 crap games against garbage qb's robbed us of wholesale change. It's gonna be 2 more years of garbage before anything changes!

We're trying to compete in the modern day NFL with the same game plan and plays from 2006... This is the definition of insanity

been a while since I've posted, but been following. Truthfully main reason was the problems with the comment page and livefyre logging in.
THE WHOLE GAME FELT LIKE A PRESEASON MATCHUP>
For the first win I don’t feel happy whatsoever. The whole game felt like I was watching a preseason game. Similar to when we drubbed the hapless vikings on the Tuesday night game after their stadium collapsed from snow a few years back. Josh Freeman is atrocious. Worst QB play I’ve seen in a pro game in quite some time. I’ll take the win as we’ve proved how hard it is to get one this year, but that play tonight was nothing to be happy about. Eli is still in a rut. The red zone offense is pathetic. Shitbride ran the ball 85% of the time on 1st down. The only decent playcalling he delivered was the small ball opening drive which stalled right in the redzone. Fewell and the defense couldn’t get us off the field in many 3rd and longs against the worst possible QB play I’ve seen.
The only bright spots tonight were:
-the run defense shutting down AP… Though not much of a merit considering the Vikes were one dimensional with Freeman back there.
-Nicks having a terrible game. Now we may be able to resign him for less $$!
- The randle TD grab was amazing as he abused that CB. However they should’ve racked up 400 plus yards against that secondary. Instead eli missed guys all night
Peyton Hillis He looked good and was hitting the hole hard and driving up field for some nice YAC!
-Josh Brown didn’t miss a field goal
This team still can not execute. The playcalling on both sides of the ball is atrocious we can barely get any sacks. Jason Hatcher on the Cowboys has as many sacks as our entire defense. That is sad. Kansas City has 6 times the amount of sacks as us 36-6. This is not Giant football.
Pugh is a mid round serviceable talent rated at a 3-4 using the old scale we have here.
Beatty was not worth the money or albatross deal we signed him to another reach by Reese and a last ditch effort when we should've planned better with OL to build our team with
Baas has always sucked.
WHY CAN"T MOORE SNIFF THE FIELD ALL THE GUY DOES IS MAKE PLAYS!!
I will be going to the Giants-Girls game so I hope for one more win at that game and maybe a win against the Eagles next week. Then hope they lose out for Clowney and shitbride to get the axe!
@ultimatenyg @pdmeyerh Daryl Washington has been a force in the NFL. But so has Linval, thank god that one panned out or we'd all be cursing to hell for Washington
1 year, 2 months ago on NYG 42 PHL 7
@ultimatenyg @the They need to fire that bum palmieri and hire him to replace him. I believe it was some place called Impact Sports somewhere in Jersey
@I Bleed Blue Looks like Reese has read the mayors comments on tynes regarding the Wash Philly and pitt games and agrees!! Maybe tynes is out!
@jfoster @ultimatenyg I agree with all of you guys in that our training staff and pulled muscles has been a constant problem. But how do you explain the post you had up earlier this year Andy where its a youtube video on Martellus Bennett's training regimen. He had been injured a lot in Dallas and was healthy all year and played better. The training he went through seemed pretty intense and legit in all aspects of strength, conditioning, and overall drills. All the Giants should go through that facilities training program.
Side note who would've thunk it... Out of the Eagles, Giants, Cowboys, Saints, Steelers, and Bears that not one would be in the post season. Unbelievable year for the rookie QB's!
Great Posts and Points all year. Really liked the film breakdown and analysis, especially when I don't have time to replay as many games as I used to. As been said the hunger issue and overall team complacency with winning last year has been the downfall going down the stretch. Coupled with a "we've been here last year and were able to dig ourselves out and get on a huge roll" sense of over confidence hurt them when they were put in 14-0 holes on the road.
However, I've said it once, I've said it twice, and now I will say it thrice!! TYNES IS HORRENDOUS! If it wasn't for that piece of shiot we'd be NFC East Champs right now and be 5-1 in the division instead of 3-3. Yes the offense carried us in the 2011 super bowl run and we never seemed to have the ability to score at will when we needed too like in years past. But if we just had a kicker we'd have the NFC East crown. (17-16 and a missed chip shot, and 19-17 and a missed 49 yarder, and the reason Coughlin aired it out to Barden causing the PI on 3rd down is cause he couldn't trust Tynes to kick a 39 yarder! I don't think any of use would've trusted Tynes there too). Similarly, in the Super Bowl I was ecstatic AB fell into the end zone to secure a TD instead of resting on Tynes' foot. The guy missed an extra point this year even. He's horrific. The only reason people think he's decent is because Shitbride's dead zone offense can't score TD's so Tynes has the opportunity to kick 6 field goals each game.
The other difference on defense aside from all the DT injuries (I feel the preseason injury to Rogers was huge as well as Kuhn) I think if those 2 were still healthy we'd have had a disruptive force in the middle coupled with Linval and it would've allowed Canty to get more rest and be fresh on alternating pass rushing downs. Depth there was our lynch pin. Also, Fewell went back to his read react base as opposed to press coverage and pressure down the stretch. Webster is better in press coverage, amukamara looked good but the knock on him about his arms being too short is ever so noticeable against the big physical receivers like boldin, rody white, etc...
Great points by Andy... Especially thoughts on Locklear, as he was an unbelievable FA signing. When he went down the game changed for our OL. Sucks that Brewer or Petrus never panned out, but Locklear was doing a fantastic job and Beatty did a lot better than I expected (at least he is serviceable). I used to dog Reese and yes he has been a little crazy in terms of constantly drafting WR's and neglecting OL and LBers. But I'm perfectly fine with patching together some free agent OL vets and utilizing Jacquan, Blackburn, and Rivers. It worked to bring us a SB ring last year. I also felt Blackburn was a force this year and when he was injured and herzlich stepped in the decline in talent was noticeable.
Granted though, for the future we desperately need some speed at LBer and a hybrid defense that can utilize guys like Kiwi and Tracy to run either a 3-4 or 4-3 and have multiple looks and fronts to combat the pistol offenses and have the speed to contend with mobile QB's like RG3, Russell Wilson, and Colin Kapernick.
Should be interesting to see what goes down this weekend. I think the seahawks will pull it off, but Skins have a good matchup as the seahawks strength is Pass defense and the Skins strength is their run game on offense and a decent run defense. The skins match up with the Hawks very well. And a rookie QB on the road in the playoffs is different than in the regular season. However, I take Seattle. Cincy has been the real sleeper team. I expect them to beat Houston. I also think Indy will pull it off against the Ravens. The Ravens really haven't shown up for a game since they played us and before that it was 6 weeks before they had a decent game. Indy's got the young guns, speed, hunger, and fire power. Indy gets the W. As far as the big NFC north matchup against the Packers, as long as the calls weren't so terribly biased towards Minnesota like they were last weekend. The packers will win. Minny will make it a close game and use AP, but in the end Rodgers will dig them out of any holes there weak OL or run defense put them in.
So there you have it Pack, Hawks, Colts, Bengals all get the W's. As Giants fans who do you root for this postseason? I'd say Packers or Niners cause we spanked both teams this year.
The real problem was solely squared in on and that's the inept offense. The same offense that could've kept this game close yesterday and last week has been painful to watch. Think about it even against Atlanta and yesterday all we had to do was put points on the board in crucial situations and give our team a rest. In Atlanta it was the ever so easy drive until we get into the redzone or dead zone (as I like to call it with a Killdrive manned offense and a scottish bum for a kicker). As soon as we get down in the redzone against every team the last 2 months its run run pass or pass run pass. Also, we're not talking creative slants or draws or screens we're talking 3 step drops where eli either takes the brunt of the pressure and throws it into the dirt or its a failed pass to cruz or a hobbled nicks.
This last game yesterday even going down 14-0 we score its 14-7 we get a crucial defensive stop and just need to sustain a drive and put points on the board and Shitbride has to run wilson or AB into the teeth of the defense on first down and now its second and long and a pass is next. Then without a reliable receiver eli is not in rhythm and makes hard 3rd down passes. The coaches should've given the rookies more opportunities and benched Nicks to either rest or get better. After the first couple games back from the injury against the bucs every DC in the league knew Nicks was a decoy. I agree Barden was an A-hole for the Cromartie PI that lost us the sheagles game but he still had some great games while nicks was out. He could've been the X receiver we needed. I have a bad feeling the g men let him walk and someone like the pats or eagles pick him up and he becomes a stud. Regardless, the point is if we score there or even get a fg the game is totally different we are within 4 points, the defense gets more rest and the outcome of the game is changed.
The problem is the offense has never had that "no matter what'' threat of Cruz, 100% Nicks, and Manningham to score at any point in the game. Instead Eli looks lost and gilbride is punchless. He has made zero adjustments and for what its worth the cost of resigning Super Mario (3.2 mil/yr) and Jacobs(1 yr/ 1.6 mil) made too much sense for us to ignore them. Say what you want about Jacobs but he was a vocal leader and was one of the key cogs of last years run. Without those 2 we don't win a SB last year period. And for the 4.8 million it would've cost I'd gladly cut Canty's fat fucken ass or Pumpkin head Baas and still have change.
Still without the offensive threat and zero 2nd half of the season adjustments by Gilbride teams had us figured out like a book. ATL did delayed blitzes and didn't give up anything deep which easily worked to shut us out. A fat goose egg with all this talent. If anyone has to go its gilbride. Our defense at least showed up in the redzone. We just needed offense this year in some critical times and could never get that production. Steelers game, Redskins game, yesterday's game, the eagles game, dallas game both times. Inefficiency in the dead zone has killed this team. We've all said the Killdrive is a one trick pony. It all boils down to Nicks he hadn't been the same all year but especially after the drug dealing, gun toting 1st round bust scumbag aqib talib intentionally leg dropped Nicks knee in the Tampa Game he really hasn't done anything.
The biggest problem of all is Tynes. Old 45 yarder Tynes. His leg is weak. If you go back to my post from 2 years ago and even Andy's we stated Tynes would cost us at least 2 games that year. Turns out it may have been only one, but this year it was 3. Flat out 3 games and hurt any momentum in 5 other games. Could've hurt us against the saints had it not been for David Wilson. The Steelers, Redskins, and Eagles games were all losses that could've been rectified had it not been for a horrible kicker. He can't hit anything over 45 yards and that is pushing it. Think about that our division record would be 4-1 heading into this weeks game against philly and our record this year would be 11-4. We could rest our guys or play for a first round bye and home field advantage!! Makes me sick!

Sheez it feels like an eternity since I've commented. However, I've followed every post diligently. Which also begs for the question, where were the preseason updates? Last year there were much more, but this year they were about as frequent as Gilbride uses screens.
Anyways, we lost the game purely because of terrible playcalling by gilbride (mainly on the Boley Int which gave all the momentum back to Dallas (the fat ryan fist pump on the sideline)), no push at the point of attack by our O line, and the atrocious play by Webster mainly and partly by Tryon. To echo Bob Papa this morning on sirius morning drive, Coe actually didn't play bad it was Webster whom was beat by Bryant for 39 yds on that 3rd and 1, Webster who was torched by Ogletree on one TD pass, and then Tryon getting roasted by Austin and Ogletree. My question is WHERE WAS JARON?? I think I saw him on one kickoff coverage. Jaron along with the DT Kuhn have looked lights out in the preseason. I wouldn't be surprised if Hosley turns out to be 4 times better than amukamara. And tonight would've been a great opportunity to get him used to the speed and feel of the game. Instead we have Tryon out there whom we know will always be an albino practice squadder.
Coughlin not playing rookies is absurd. Yes I know they tried to get Wilson involved, but there has to be some trickery in playcalling. This goes back to the Gilbride playcalling why even go to Wilson on a run when we were moving the ball with dinks and dunks all through the air. Getting Pascoe and Hynoski involved more with rollouts and screens would've been beneficial and I would've loved to have seen some to Da' Rel Scott. Also, it doesn't help when the Cowgirls know that if they see Wilson it is going to be a running play.
Even with Wilson, I haven't been as impressed by Wilson as everyone in the NY area and media are. He had a few decent plays in preseason but to me he lacks the ability to make something out of nothing. Which thankfully is AB's greatest asset. AB was like a Wizard/Wiggly Worm weaving and wiggling his way around our horrible Offensive Line that was getting physically blown off the ball and manhandled, to gain 3-5 yards at times where he should've been stopped for a loss.
Also, Reese's need to ignore the O Line is finally catching up with us. I heard Baltimore let go of a good tackle (can't remember his name) but its worth a look up. Joselio Hanson may not be a bad addition as well. I realize we couldn't afford Ross, but he did play lights out and was a 1st round pick. Hopefully Webster comes back and what's the word on Coe?
The calls by the refs were ridiculous last night or shall I say the non-calls. You can't blame it solely on that but our O Line and DB's should have responded by doing the same BS. Holding the receivers and tackling the defensive linemen.

@psffur I'd love to see the giants get kendall wright from baylor to replace mm. Jernigan sucks... I know its too early to say it but he does. I'd also like to see us nab Cyrus from the aggies as he is an every down work horse type of back that can catch the ball out of the backfield. Another guy and big 12 bias I may be but broyles is a Steve smith slot type guy that can get open and runs great routes. Oklahoma's whole season went through this guy and when he was injured they suffered moving the ball on offense. Other than that we need o line and i don't want either Stanford prospect as I believe there is too much bust potential with either of those picks as they came from a great system with great coaching and a great qb plus if they're there after harbaugh has a chance at them then u know something is up.
Put up your draft rankings if they're already done Pete.

Thanks Pete in seriousness though you add a lot to the site and I hope you still contribute. Especially, with the draft project, hell someone's gotta keep wonder honest and go toe to toe with him. I tried to do it the first year matter fact I still have the Excel spreadsheet and I may send it over only I got through the first two rounds and ran out of time. I will have to send it out when Andy reviews everyone mine will still show that it was last edited in 2009 just so noone thinks I'm bullshitting.
I look forward to see your top 100 list and future commentary and i think some of the other readers need to know there are two sides to every coin but we all know your as big a Giant fan as the rest!
