The New York Giants have had a bad start to the season. This is something that everyone, including YES Network radio host Don La Greca, can agree on. What La Greca will not countenance, however, are people who seek to mitigate the Giants’ badness by using fancy stats. For those people, La Greca has some harsh words…
Getting puked on is disgusting. Getting puked on and then getting punched in the face by the person who puked on you is what you get when you go to an NFL game. The guy in the white shirt learned this the hard way at Monday’s Giants-Lions game.
It was just one play. It was a big play, potentially a crucial one, but we’re probably not sitting here dissecting it as if one delay-of-game penalty was responsible for all the Giants’ ills if coach Ben McAdoo hadn’t (deservedly/unusually) put the blame squarely on Eli Manning.
Eli Manning was sacked five times, Odell Beckham, Jr. was limited in his return from an ankle injury, and the Giants lost to the Lions, 24-10. Detroit is 2-0, and the Giants have now gone eight straight games without scoring 20 points.
The Yankees today invited four members of the 2007 Super Bowl-winning New York Giants—David Tyree, Shaun O’Hara, Antonio Pearce, and Jeff Feagles—to throw out ceremonial first pitches at today’s home game against the Orioles. Guess what those four assholes didn’t do? They didn’t throw out first pitches!
The NFL’s initial investigation into allegations of domestic violence against former Giants kicker Josh Brown, which resulted in a one-game suspension, accomplished nothing. Even less is accomplished by the fact that the NFL has reportedly decided to suspend Brown for an additional six games.
Some people are fans of the New York Giants. But many, many more people are NOT fans of the New York Giants. This 2017 Deadspin NFL team preview is for those in the latter group. Read all the previews so far here.
Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. has an ankle sprain, which in this instance is good news, considering how severe the injury looked when it happened. Now for the bad news: The sprain reportedly could keep Beckham from playing in the Giants’ first two regular-season games. Which means it’s time again to wonder why the…
The Giants cut lineman Michael Bowie today, a week after he was charged with domestic violence in Bixby, Oklahoma. In a statement, Giants General Manager Jerry Reese said:
Odell Beckham Jr. limped off the field during the second quarter of tonight’s preseason game against the Browns after a hit that knocked his legs out from under him:
There’s Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. this morning at training camp, doing what he does even as Janoris Jenkins plays him perfectly. Here’s the full video:
The handwringing over Odell Beckham Jr.’s decision to skip out on the Giants’ voluntary OTAs has been the most exhausting storyline of the NFL offseason. The NFL media would be a lot better if everyone stopped pretending to care that some players skip OTAs, and Beckham appears to agree with that sentiment.
A civil action filed against the New York Giants, CEO John Mara, and quarterback Eli Manning contains emails that plaintiff/collector Eric Inselberg claims prove Manning knowingly passed off memorabilia as game-used with the help of equipment manager Joe Skiba.
Brandon Marshall is staying in North Jersey. Newsday’s Kimberley A. Martin this morning reported that Marshall, the recently released but still-more-than-able wide receiver, has agreed move his stuff some 30 miles east by signing with the Giants. Which means Eli Manning now has Odell Beckham Jr., Sterling Shepard, and…
Deion Sanders was picked fifth overall by the Atlanta Falcons in the 1989 NFL draft. Four of the first five picks ended up in the Hall Of Fame (word to Tony Mandarich), but even though it was a spectacular draft, there was no way Sanders was going to make it past the very top of the draft order. Dude put up what was…
Former New York Giants kicker Josh Brown appeared on Good Morning America Thursday morning for his first full interview regarding the domestic violence allegations—that Brown himself has admitted to—that caused him to lose his job as an NFL place kicker.
The result of Odell Beckham Jr.’s frustration has been erased from the Packers’ facilities. From ESPN’s Rob Demovsky:
In terms of forced explanations of why the New York Giants—and specifically Odell Beckham Jr.— are out of the playoffs, boat trips are tired. A hole in the wall that serves as a visual representation of the receiver’s struggles with self-control is officially in.
You don’t need me to tell you that Odell Beckham Jr. spending last Monday on a boat with Justin Bieber and Trey Songz didn’t have anything to do with him dropping three passes in yesterday’s loss to the Packers. Even the New York tabloid press, to which a story like Beckham’s is red meat, hasn’t really been up to the…
For most of a half, the Giants looked they were cruising.
