Valentine’s Views: Leftover Eli Manning stories, more

Danielle Parhizkaran-USA TODAY Sports A few thoughts for a Sunday without real football, because the Pro Bowl doesn’t count With free agency and the draft coming up sooner than we all might realize, let’s ponder some offseason thoughts about your New York Giants. A little, well, a lot more Eli Eli Manning is retired. He’s no longer a Giant. His Hall of Fame eligibility doesn’t come up for five years.

Yes, Eli Manning belongs in the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Danielle Parhizkaran-USA TODAY Sports Here’s why Of course I’m going to tell you that I believe Eli Manning should be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. I will make my case in a minute.

Big Blue View mailbag, 1/25: Jason Garrett, Eli Manning, 2020 draft, more

The mail’s here! It’s Day 1 A.E. (After Eli) for the New York Giants. Let’s get back to normal a bit, open the Big Blue View mailbag and answer some some questions. Jeffrey Itell asks: Just a hunch, Ed, that Garrett’s at the head of the line to replace Gettleman in a year or two. Giants GM is the job he’ll bolt for when Gettleman steps down having completed his rebuild or if he fails. Mara seems to love him and would likely have an edge over Abrams. What do you think? Ed says: Jeffrey, I think you’re getting way, way ahead of yourself. I don’t see a GM path for Jason Garrett....

Senior Bowl Day 2 practice report: Prospects who could interest the Giants

Van Jefferson | Vasha Hunt-USA TODAY Sports Nick Falato goes through what he saw on Wednesday MOBILE, Ala. — Day 2 of the Senior Bowl practices on Wednesday substantiated a lot of my initial impressions at Tuesday’s practice. Let’s go through some of what I saw. Lloyd Cushenberry is a good football player. Florida’s wide receiver Van Jefferson made an incredible grab in the team periods over the top of a linebacker and in between a safety, and Notre Dame’s Chase Claypool made some very impressive catches with his hands. As I wrote and hoped in yesterday’s article, Josh Jones...

Giants position review: EDGE needs an upgrade

Markus Golden | Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Giants have to find a dominant edge rusher The New York Giants’ pass rush improved marginally from 2018 to 2019 — up from 30 sacks to 36 and from a sack percentage of 5.08 to 6.08 — but was still bottom third in the league. The Giants still need more impact defensive players, with no need really bigger than a dominant edge rusher who demands a double team. Let’s look at the EDGE players the Giants used in 2019 and how the position could change in 2020. The roster Starters: Markus Golden, Lorenzo CarterReserves: Oshane Ximines, Kareem...
