has become of the Giants? Why does everything they touch turn to dust, unless
of course they cannot touch it and instead drop it or have it glance off someone's
fingers and into the hands of someone who doesn't wear their uniform?
Giants, already buckling under the weight of a 0-2 start to their season,
suffered a significant injury loss on Sunday when cornerback Walter Thurmond suffered
a torn pectoral muscle, ending his season.

with the situation, the Giants have yet to reach out to their former Nickel corner,
who last played in the preseason for Seattle.
Giants as a whole sounded surprisingly upbeat Monday, despite losing their

a pass in a regular-season game since 2010. Sept

(0-1) vs Cardinals (1-0)
The Cardinals started their season right after
the Giants in the second Monday Night Football game broadcast last week. They
managed to beat the Chargers 18-17 by coming from behind with 12 unanswered points
in the fourth quarter.
The Giants were working in a new system and it showed.
The resulting 35-14 loss to the Lions now has them losing in their last four consecutive
season openers. The 21 point margin on Monday was their biggest since losing 35-0
to the Cowboys in 1995.
Manning at this moment - given the state of the offensive line, given that
underachieving weapons around him - is hardly the only problem. He is, however,
the only solution.
don't need to be the Green Bay Packers. They just need to find a way to win.
The more Eli Manning ponders this new Giants offense, the more he comes to that
Cruz made the very strong point that the Giants' success hinges on the ball
being thrown in his direction, and in the direction of Rueben Randle, too.
Giants threw to Jerrel Jernigan and Larry Donnell a lot Monday because those
guys were open, so the question becomes whether Randle and Cruz can get separation
from defenders in short range better than they have so far.
the Giants are learning a new offensive system, how well the players are communicating
has become a hot topic. Interviews with Giants players last week about what goes
on in the 40 seconds between plays revealed a world of nonstop, esoteric interaction.
the Giants' defense is on the field for a big play Sunday against the Cardinals,
the megaboards in the corners of MetLife Stadium will start pulsing and flashing.
Video images of Giants defensive players will remind the fans to get up out of
their seats, get rowdy and make some noise. Jon Beason wishes they wouldn't.
Giants will try and right the ship against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday
in a game that could seriously alter the fortunes of both teams. Since 1990, the
rate at which teams made the playoffs after starting 0-2 is 11.6 percent. At 1-1,
teams make the playoffs at a rate of 41.1 percent.
we did anticipate the offense failing last week, we didn't see all three units
spitting the bit. It was a bad match-up all around that realistically had little
chance of turning out well for this team that is very much in transition, if not
rebuilding. This week the situation is better.
Giants have an entirely new offense, a new system and a ton of new faces.
They have a new coach overseeing the offense, too. It's not an excuse for finishing
with under 200 yards of total offense and two turnovers in the opener.
Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie was brought to the Giants to help stop some of
the league's top receivers, not enable them to run wild in front of a national
audience. Rodgers-Cromartie was too often left in the dust by the league's top
receiver in Detroit. Calvin Johnson had seven catches on 11 targets for 164 yards
and two touchdowns.
play the same position, wear the same number and share the same last name.
Yet Sunday's game between the Giants and Arizona Cardinals will mark the first
time that brothers Daniel and Darren Fells will be on the same football field

- Robert Griffin III is off to a slow start in his bid to become primarily a pocket
passer, and his frequently questionable judgment - both in and out of the pocket
- has stirred concern on the coaching staff.

Sept 12 Tom
Coughlin keeps Giants after practice for remembrance, moment of silence. Like
so many people, Tom Coughlin has a connection to Sept. 11, 2001 that stays close
to his heart.
Moore went from the Giants' sacks leader and best pass-rusher in the preseason
to forgotten man in Monday's loss. He got just 10 snaps in Detroit, a glaring
lack of playing time that had even Tom Coughlin befuddled and deflecting questions
to his defensive coordinator.
Moore should have played more. The lasting image of Damontre Moore from Monday
night's Giants loss in Detroit was him being juked by Lions quarterback Matthew
Stafford on the opening drive of the season. The play resulted in a touchdown
to Calvin Johnson.
McAdoo: The encouraging thing is that offense's mistakes are different each
week. It is unrealistic to think that all of the mistakes made by the Giants offense
on Monday night are fixable, at least in a period of six days.
McAdoo sounds as if he wants to be bold and assured, but those darn lousy
results make it difficult to keep making promises that cannot be kept. He says:
"We need to take the system and tailor it to the players and their strengths."
the day he arrived with the Giants this spring, Corey Washington has been
looking forward to Sunday's game. The receiver was originally signed as an undrafted
rookie by the Cardinals but unceremoniously waived 10 days later before signing
with the Giants.
defense vs. Lions: 5 takeaways from DC Perry Fewell including calling it a
'comedy of errors'. After getting three full days to absorb the opening game letdown
in Detroit, defensive coordinator Perry Fewell talked about what went wrong and
how the Giants intend to turn it around.

weeks and five preseason games. That should be plenty of time for a new quarterback
to work out all the kinks, learn all the new terminology, develop the rapport
with his receivers and compensate for a flimsy offensive line right? Not even
close, says Cardinals coach Bruce Arians.
Cardinals quarterback Carson Palmer understands the growing pains that his
Giants counterpart Eli Manning is enduring as he struggles to adapt to a new offense.

exactly one thing about this new Giants offense: The unit has no clue what it

patience usually runs out sooner than later. And as it turns out installing
a new offensive system that doesn't resemble the old offensive system takes a
lot longer than the Giants led everyone to believe.
Brown hasn't punted in an NFL game since 2004, but the New York Giants' placekicker
was practicing it Wednesday just in case he needs to do it Sunday.
Weatherford's high ankle sprain is the type of injury that normally would
sideline a football player for weeks, not days. But a few days is what Weatherford
expects it to take for him to return.
Cruz wants the damn ball. Alright, he didn't say it quite like that, or publish
a book with the same title, but the Giants receiver was pretty clear in the aftermath
of the opening-season loss. What Victor Cruz really needs: Another receiver to
emerge as a threat in the passing game.
the first time in weeks, Giants first-round pick Odell Beckham Jr. was catching
punts at practice on Wednesday. He was seen running more last week despite a hamstring
problem that ruined his summer.

The Giants and Lions both finished
up last season with 7-9 records. For whatever reason both these teams are playing
in the opening prime time Monday night slot of our 2014 NFL season. You'll go
back to 2011 to find when the Lions and Giants were last in the playoffs.
Lions lost their wildcard game and the Giants won theirs and went on to win it
all, but there's been nothing to spark any real national prime time excitement
since then for either team. Maybe the NFL is trying to pump some life into these
two underachievers by featuring them in the spotlight of Monday Night Football.

could be very good. But they've both recently underachieved on offense and the
Lions have been underachieving on defense for years.
Giants prepare to open their season without an established starter of any
pedigree at tight end. Entering the final practices last week, the starter still
wasn't clear. When Coach Tom Coughlin was asked if he had identified a No. 1 tight

of the New York Giants are low, and the poor performance of the first-team
offense in the preseason is largely to blame. Lost in all the panic, however,
is that the Giants' defense may be among the best in the NFL, thanks in large
part to the revamped secondary.
Lions have one of the league's most prolific passing attacks, one that will
present a formidable challenge to the Giants defense. The Lions' passing offense
was third in the NFL in 2013, averaging 280.1 yards a game. The great unknown
for the Giants is exactly what the Lions will present.
Giants know exactly what you think of their offense: They know you think it
stinks. With the regular-season opener awaiting Monday night in Detroit and a
preseason of offensive angst in the new system behind them, some Giants players
had messages for the stressed-out fans who already are in a state of panic.
Coughlin said he won't bug Ben McAdoo much during games . . . unless he has
to. The head coach of the Giants said he will mostly allow the new offensive coordinator
and first-time play-caller to run the show during games.
does bother Manning a bit that, after all he's done, the narrative going into
the 2014 season is about what he still has to prove. Manning had a rotten year
in 2013, and he's not denying that. He just would like everyone to know he's as
disappointed about it as they are.
