Valentine’s Views: ‘Things I think’ about the NFC East, Marc Colombo, more

Photo by Andy Lewis/Icon Sportswire via The Giants are back to work with the NFC East up for grabs The NFC East might be — well, is — the NFL’s worst division. It sure is interesting, though, that’s for sure. After a crazy and unpredictable Week 11 Sunday, the NFC East is more muddled than ever. Your standings: Philadelphia Eagles 3-6-1New York Giants 3-7Dallas Cowboys 3-7Washington Football Team 3-7 The Eagles lead the division, but in back-to-back losses to the Giants and Cleveland Browns have played like the team least likely to win it.

Giants at Bengals opening odds: Giants are 5-point favorites

Photo by Andy Lyons/ Giants back to work Monday after eventful bye week The New York Giants begin a critical week as 5-point favorites in their Week 12 matchup on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals, per Draft Kings Sportsbook.

New York Giants work out trio of players

Tim Williams | Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Linebacker Tim Williams is most recognizable name New York Giants GM Dave Gettleman always says roster construction is a 12-month job. In a season impacted by COVID-19, that ongoing work has never been more important for NFL teams.

Assessing Giants GM Dave Gettleman: Should he stay or should he go?

Photo by Sarah Stier/ There are reasons he should stay and reasons Gettleman should go — let’s look at both sides We have looked at his trades, free-agent acquisitions and draft decisions. Now, it is time to put a bow on all of that and draw a conclusion — should Dave Gettleman remain general manager of the New York Giants or should ownership take his key card and send him into retirement? Many of you long ago decided that Gettleman needed to go. Some of you thought he never should have arrived in the first place. Gettleman has, though, been the Giants’ general...

Big Blue View mailbag, 11/21: Leonard Williams, Nick Gates, more questions

The mail’s here! It’s time for a bye week Big Blue View mailbag. So, let’s get right to it. Kevin Donohue asks: Leonard Williams has been impressive. While we don’t know how far apart they were last off season, do you think Gettleman wishes he’d met Williams’ terms and had him locked up for a few years? Last year’s terms are no longer possible. Ed says: Kevin, no I don’t think Dave Gettleman “wishes he’d met Williams’ terms.” No GM is just going to say, “oh, that what you want? Fine. Here you.” It’s a negotiation. It’s no secret the Giants wanted...

DeAndre Baker: Why NY Giants made right decision to not seek reunion It was a bold move that completely backfired, and will go down as one of the worst Gettleman has made as GM. But Baker needs to prove he can be a quality NFL cornerback before we rip the Giants for letting a quality NFL cornerback go? The situation was bad enough that the Giants gave away the assets they did to draft him. Compounding the issue by doubling down...

Dave DeGuglielmo: What are the Giants getting?

Photo by Joel Auerbach/ Veteran offensive line coach is well-traveled, and there appear to be reasons for that Dave DeGuglielmo’s history is pretty clear. He’s a really good coach with an abrasive personality who can really rub people the wrong way. NFL assistant coaches are vagabonds who bounce from team to team regularly, losing a job whenever a head coach does, or whenever he needs a sacrificial lamb to save his own job. Still, DeGuglielmo’s resume raises as many questions as it answers: New York Giants (2004–2008) Assistant offensive line and quality...
