Giants news, 10/14: Odell Beckham “not going to apologize for my heart”

Sorry, but Beckham is talking again — and that means we’re talking about him Odell Beckham Jr. may have been fined by the New York Giants for his comments in an ESPN interview and called in front of the team to explain them, but he isn’t apologizing for them. “I’m sorry that I’m not going to apologize for my heart,” Beckham said via Facebook’s Uninterrupted series I Am More: OBJ. “I don’t feel like you deserve an apology for one, and I don’t feel like it’s necessary for me to apologize for how I feel.” Beckham also said he feels as though he lives in a “fish...

Giants news, 10/13: Francesa — “garbage football;” Simms — Eli done as top QB

Giants news, 10/13: Francesa — “garbage football;” Simms — Eli done as top QB

It’s open season on the Giants, and deservedly so Good morning, New York Giants fans! The 1-5, drama-ridden, Giants are an easy target for critics these days. On Friday, WFAN’s Mike Francesa and NFL analyst Phil Simms were among those taking aim. Francesa: “Half a decade of garbage football” Known for his epic rants, Francesa opened his Friday show by lambasting the Giants. He said they “stink,” have “become a bad football organization” and have produced “half a decade of garbage football.” Here’s more: “The Giants won three games last year. They’re 1-5 this...

Eli Manning staying at quarterback for the Giants, and there are no sure-thing replacement options

Eli Manning staying at quarterback for the Giants, and there are no sure-thing replacement options

It’s open season on the veteran quarterback, but is his time really up? New York Giants coach Pat Shurmur addressed the “quarterback question” clearly and succinctly on Friday. There will not be a change at the position and Eli Manning will start when the Giants face the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football in Week 7. “No,” Shurmur said when asked if such a change could be considered. “We believe in Eli.” With the Giants at 1-5, Manning coming off a poor game and the Giants headed for yet another disappointing, playoff-less season the question about a quarterback change...

Time for the Giants to start over, including at quarterback

Time for the Giants to start over, including at quarterback

The path the Giants are on just isn’t going to work The New York Giants are a dysfunctional mess. Thursday night in a rain-drenched, dismal, disheartened, half-empty MetLife Stadium another winter came early to Giants football. In embarrassing fashion. In a game where they could have saved their season, the Giants instead humiliated themselves, losing to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night, 34-13. “We didn’t do anything well enough to win tonight” That was coach Pat Shurmur after the game. And, he’s right. The Giants, despite the brilliance of Saquon Barkley and the impact...

Giants-Eagles “Kudos & Wet Willies” review: Saquon Barkley good, the rest of the Giants ... bad

that-pretty much sums it up The New York Giants’ 2018 season is in tatters. At 1-5 and completely non-competitive Thursday night against the Philadelphia Eagles, yet another Giants’ team has shown us it isn’t good enough to be taken seriously. On to your “Kudos & Wet Willies” review. Let’s just get this over with. Kudos to ... Saquon Barkley — At least somebody on the Giants’ offense showed up. Barkley was incredible, finishing one receiving yard shy of becoming the first player in Giants’ history to have 100 yards receiving and rushing in the game game. He...

Giants-Eagles 2018, Week 6: Live updates, score, news, more

Use this as your first-half open thread A national TV audience will get to witness whether the New York Giants save their season on Thursday night or doom themselves to yet another losing, playoff-less year. The 1-4 Giants face the 2-3 Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. With no team in the NFC East having more than two victories at this point in the season the last-place Giants still have an opportunity to be competitive in the division. Linebacker Olivier Vernon will play for the Giants tonight, making his season debut after suffering a high ankle sprain in the preseason. Tight end...

Giants-Eagles: 5 things to watch as Giants try to save their season

“Im my opinion this is the game. We gotta win this game in order to feel like you still have a chance in the division.” That’s Michael Strahan, legendary, New York Giants Hall of Fame defensive end, on the importance of Thursday night’s NFC East at MetLife Stadium against the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. This game is absolutely the season-defining one for the Giants. This game will determine whether or not the Giants can be competitive in the mediocre NFC East or if they will simply spend the rest of the season playing out the string and building toward a...

Giants-Eagles: 5 questions with Bleeding Green Nation

Let’s get some perspective on the Eagles New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles. Two teams, and fan bases, that largely don’t like each other.

Poll results: Giants’ fans split by Odell Beckham’s comments to ESPN

Poll results: Giants’ fans split by Odell Beckham’s comments to ESPN

Slim majority of voters say star wide receiver was wrong to speak out New York Giants fans appear to be almost evenly split on whether Odell Beckham Jr. was right to speak out the way he did in his recent ESPN interview with Josina Anderson. In our ‘Fanpulse’ poll this week, 52 percent of respondents said that Beckham was wrong to speak out. That means 48 percent thought he was right. Patricia Traina has offered her perspective. I have offered mine. The poll results show us, quite simply, that Beckham’s words have divided the fan base pretty much down the middle. Here are the...

Pat Shurmur: Players complaining about refs are “excuse-making”

Pat Shurmur: Players complaining about refs are “excuse-making”

Giants coach says he has been assured that won’t happen again After Sunday’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, in which questionable officiating played a role, some New York Giants players aired their gripes publicly. Damon Harrison tweeted that the game had been “stolen” from the Giants. Landon Collins said simply that “we need better refs.” Giants coach Pat Shurmur isn’t having the complaining, and on Wednesday said that the public whining “will never happen again.” “I handled it with them, and the players assured me that that will never happen again,” Shurmur said....

Giants-Eagles final injury report: Olivier Vernon appears set to play for first time in 2018

Giants-Eagles final injury report: Olivier Vernon appears set to play for first time in 2018

Evan Engram out, but PK Aldrick Rosas appears OK Olivier Vernon could make his long-awaited 2018 debut Thursday night for the New York Giants when they face the Philadelphia. Out all season due to a high ankle sprain, Vernon was not on the final injury report issued by the Giants on Wednesday. That should be taken as an indication he will play. Tight end Evan Engram (knee) and wide receiver Russell Shepard (neck) have both been ruled out. Engram tested his sprained MCL on Tuesday, but is apparently not ready to go. Tight end Rhett Ellison (foot) is questionable. Placekicker Aldrick Rosas...

Giants-Eagles by the numbers: Giants’ offense still has a negative-play problem

Giants-Eagles by the numbers: Giants’ offense still has a negative-play problem

Giants are going backwards more than once every six plays The New York Giants crossed the 30-point threshold last week vs. the Carolina Panthers for the first time in 38 games, including their 2016 playoff loss to the Green Bay Packers. That was a good step, but if the Giants are going to play consistently good offense they are going to have to find a way to limit the incredibly high number of negative plays they have been enduring. Against the Carolina Panthers the Giants had six negative runs in 15 attempts, four offensive penalties and a sack. That’s 11 negative plays in 60 potential...
