Giants Ty Beanie Ballz

Sept 19 You might see a Giants team you don't recognize from the first two weeks of this season when they play the 2-0 Texans Sunday at MetLife Stadium. You might see a more aggressive, angry Giants team playing with less tentativeness and more abandon than you saw in their lackluster losses to the Lions and Cardinals that so far have marred this season.

The Giants only scored 14 points again in Week 2, but offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo likes the direction his unit is headed. Eli Manning in particular looked much better against the Cardinals, completing 26 of 39 passes for 277 yards -- and he could have had a few more completions, if his receivers had held onto the ball.

Victor Cruz has not caught a touchdown pass since Week 4 last season in Kansas City -- a string of 12 games played. He missed the final two games of 2013 with a knee injury. Teammate Antrel Rolle told WFAN in a Tuesday interview: "Victor will definitely give them something to play that salsa music soon enough." Coach Tom Coughlin and Cruz met Tuesday and discussed, among other things, the Giants' need to stay positive despite their 0-2 start.

The Houston Texans are 2-0 and the New York Giants are 0-2, but Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul is sleeping comfortably this week.
Jason Pierre-Paul isn't scared at all by the Houston Texans offense. What worries Jason Pierre-Paul about the Houston Texans offense? Uh, nothing!"

It appears the Giants have not lost their middle linebacker after all. Jon Beason says his injured foot "feels a whole lot better," and he is not ruling out playing Sunday against the Houston Texans despite not practicing the past two days.
The Giants middle linebacker (foot/toe) was no longer walking around in a protective boot on Thursday, and on Friday, he will see noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson in North Carolina.

Sept 18 Special Report - After Arizona: The good, The bad, The ugly
Well, that didn't go as planned now, did it? For the pessimists out there, the season is almost over. For the optimists, the new offense showed some signs of life and the defensive front had a decent (not great) showing. The facts, however, are thus: there were too many dropped passes, too many turnovers, the defense let a career backup quarterback keep his team in the game and a crucial failure on special teams was a back breaker. The Giants have proven one thing over the last few years: they're consistent in their inconsistency.

Cruz needs to connect with Eli, teammates. This is new for Victor Cruz, his role as a team captain, his saying he wants the ball thrown his way more often, the boos he heard after dropping passes last Sunday against the Cardinals. And so, Cruz admits he's learning as he goes along.
Victor Cruz leads the NFL with four dropped passes, according to STATS. Depending on who is counting, it could be five after a rough outing on Sunday, where Cruz's drops contributed significantly to the loss. It prompted a meeting between the wide receiver and coach Tom Coughlin this week.

This would be the ideal week for the Giants to get Odell Beckham Jr. back on the field. But it hasn't been an ideal kind of season, has it?. Tom Coughlin all but ruled out the first-round pick who has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since the spring.
While Giants coach Tom Coughlin indicated that the rookie receiver is making progress in his return from a hamstring injury, the coach said Wednesday that Beckham will not see any snaps with the team this week. He will work off to the side.

The Giants pride themselves on flipping every stone when it comes to finding talent. One of their wide receivers was an afterthought from UMass. Another was buried at Division II Newberry College. But Preston Parker? "Begging for money, that's all," he said when asked what he was doing last year. "Trying to find a job."
With Jerrel Jernigan, who suffered a mid-foot sprain in Sunday's loss to Arizona, out for the remainder of the season, Parker will have first shot at his No. 3 receiver position. Parker, who is also the primary punt returner, had one catch for 29 yards last Sunday.
In training camp, Parker seemed to catch every pass thrown his way. He got an opportunity to return punts when Beckham suffered a hamstring injury that still has him on the sidelines. Now Jernigan is out and Parker's importance continues to grow.

NFL News
The NFL and the players union announced that after several years of feuding over drug-testing protocols, they had reached an agreement on a new plan. The most significant change is that players will be tested for human growth hormone for the first time.

Sept 17 The Giants were busy trying to modify their roster in order to survive the season. Injuries to starting middle linebacker Jon Beason, nickel cornerback Walter Thurmond and wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan prompted the moves.
Jon Beason's return to the Giants' lineup looks like it will go through Charlotte. The Giants are already thin at linebacker with promising rookie Devon Kennard sidelined by a hamstring injury.
Receiver Jerrel Jernigan was placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday with a mid-foot injury, joining cornerback Walter Thurmond, who went down Sunday with a torn pectoral muscle.

There are no guarantees that Odell Beckham Jr.'s balky hamstring will allow him to play, but Tom Coughlin has yet to rule him out, a dramatic shift after weeks of expecting nothing from the receiver.

Giants' secondary a mess so far. Aggressive enough to be called for way too many penalties; not aggressive enough to force any turnovers.

Victor Cruz has four dropped passes this season, and the two he dropped last Sunday helped fuel the Cardinals comeback as they turned a 14-10 deficit into a 25-14 victory over the Giants.

Antrel Rolle tabbed Sunday's showdown with the Houston Texans at MetLife Stadium as a "must-win" game and promised a more impactful brand of football out of Big Blue. And he asked for the Giants fan base to give the team a hand, too.

A look at the NFL officiating this season. The NFL today has many of the best possible individuals working as officials.

Sept 16 For Eli Manning to fit into Giants West Coast offense, he needs help from receivers Dropping the ball is a bad thing, and it's a real problem when it happens three times in a row in the fourth quarter.
What 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?

The 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.
Is it worth making a phone call to Terrell Thomas? According to two sources familiar with the situation, the Giants have yet to reach out to their former Nickel corner, who last played in the preseason for Seattle.

The Giants as a whole sounded surprisingly upbeat Monday, despite losing their home opener by 11 points to a team starting a backup quarterback who hadn't thrown a pass in a regular-season game since 2010.
Lost in the mess that the Giants devolved into in a second straight meltdown was one potentially critical development, something that will be of vital importance if the team somehow finds its way out of an 0-2 hole: Eli Manning looked like a mostly functional quarterback again.

Giants (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.

Sept 14 Eli 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.
They 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 conclusion.

Victor 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.
The 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.

Since 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.
When 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.

Sept 13 The 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.

Though 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.

The 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.

Cornerback 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.

They 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 together.

NFC East News
Redskins - 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.
Cowboys - Not too long ago, the Cowboys viewed the defensive line as the strength of their team. The four-man front was populated by accomplished veterans and a couple of stars. DeMarcus Ware, Jay Ratliff, Jason Hatcher and Anthony Spencer were an intimidating bunch.
Eagles - Chip Kelly: We don't always get replay views on the road in press box Kelly explained that NFL rules prohibit the team from taking a portable television set into the coaches box and teams are restricted to the feeds provided to the coaches.

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.

Damontre 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.
Damontre 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.

Ben 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.
Ben 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."

From 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.

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.

Sept 11 Some people may be losing faith in Eli Manning, in the wake of a poor 2013 season and an equally disappointing 2014 debut. Eli Manning isn't one of them. "No, no doubts," Manning said.
Five 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.
Arizona 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.

After five shaky preseason games and one ugly season opener, Tom Coughlin knows exactly one thing about this new Giants offense: The unit has no clue what it wants to do or how it wants to attack its opponents.
Coughlin's 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.

Josh 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.
Steve 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.

Victor 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.
For 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.

Giants (0-0) vs Lions (0-0)
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.
The 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.

Sept 7 Stevie Brown's return is part of the reason the Giants will open with one of the best secondaries in the NFL. He, along with free safety Antrel Rolle and cornerbacks Prince Amukamara and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie will be charged with shadowing the Lions' All-Pro wide receiver Calvin Johnson. Containing the man they call Megatron is a large part of the Giants' game plan.

Giants look mired in mediocrity, unless you're willing to take a leap of faith. These are two teams with a lot of theoretical offensive juice and defenses that potentially could be very good. But they've both recently underachieved on offense and the Lions have been underachieving on defense for years.

The 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 end, he shook his head. "No," he said.

If the Giants miss the playoffs again, co-owner John Mara may have no choice but to take a good, long look at Coughlin's complicated resume - two wondrous Super Bowl championships, but no playoff victories in any other season.

Most NFL players spend their meetings going over X's and O's. The Giants' running backs? They spend a good deal of time on the Whys. Starter Rashad Jennings opens every day's gathering with a philosophical thought, a hypothetical question or an idiom or proverb to discuss. These aren't just running backs. They're thinking backs. And they're going deep.

Sept 6 Ben McAdoo's processed and handled a difficult preseason where the first-team offense managed just three scoring dives on 19 possessions. He's processed it, learned from it and then left it in the film room. "The preseason is over," McAdoo said sternly on Friday.
He conceded that the Giants didn't get things done in preseason. Still, he insisted, he had seen enough progress this week to believe that Eli Manning & Co. are ready. "I feel that we've made progress," he said. "We're making progress. We're starting to click in practice."
Several of McAdoo's players said they agree that practice recently has been a lot more encouraging than the five preseason games were. And if there's one positive they intend to build on, it was that the first-team offense committed just one turnover in the entire preseason.
Right up until kickoff, Ben McAdoo will remain a mystery. In the final question Friday during his media availability, he was asked if he will script the first few plays he plans on calling Monday night when the Giants face the Lions. The new offensive coordinator nodded and said, "No." With a smile.

Victor Cruz can hear it in Eli Manning's voice. He can see it in his posture. And Tom Coughlin recognized it simply by looking at his quarterback's face. Manning has something to prove. The two-time Super Bowl MVP seeks redemption. Manning begins his quest Monday night in front of a national TV audience when the Giants open their season in Detroit.

Sept 5 Expectations 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.
The 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.

The 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.
Tom 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.

It 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.
During the 2006 season, with Manning struggling, Coughlin replaced offensive coordinator John Hufnagel with quarterbacks coach Kevin Gilbride, who turned around Manning's career and wound up winning two Super Bowls.
