Are the Giants better off without Odell Beckham Jr.?

It isn’t a laughable idea, that the New York Giants might be a better team should they move on from wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. But for one member of the team’s coaching staff, it is just that. Downright laughable.   Beckham is out for the remainder of the...

Plenty of hand-wringing has gone on over the past month about the state of soccer in the United States, in particular over the men’s national team’s failure to qualify for next summer’s World Cup. As such, Sunil Gulati has become a prime target of this angst, a knee-jerk...

Ben McAdoo again addresses Giants with team meeting

It is business as usual for the New York Giants, who despite coming off a devastating loss at the San Francisco 49ers last week are hoping to rebound  against one of the top teams in the AFC.   Last week’s loss to a previously unbeaten 49ers showed just how low the Giants season...

Giants RB Orleans Darkwa quietly putting up elite numbers

Perhaps underutilized, there is no denying that running back Orleans Darkwa is one of the few bright spots for the New York Giants this year. Even with limited opportunities, he has emerged as the best rusher on the roster. And in fact, the no-name fourth-year running back stacks up pretty well...

Chiefs Andy Reid not taking Giants lightly

They may be facing a 1-8 New York Giants team but Andy Reid said his Kansas City Chiefs won’t be taking their opponent lightly this Sunday. Despite a bit of an uneven year, the Chiefs are nonetheless 6-3 and atop the AFC West. The Giants, who lost last week to a San Francisco 49ers team that...

Jets LB Demario Davis putting together a Pro Bowl season

There have been many surprises for the New York Jets this year, who despite Sunday’s loss at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have still defied conventional wisdom with a 4-6 record. For a team that was picked to go winless by many pundits, the record is a shock. At the heart of this shock is...

Red Bulls host vocational day with SNHU

The New York Red Bulls used their head in a different way last week. It wasn’t to head home a goal or head away a cross out of danger. In fact, it was something far more meaningful. Instead, the front office collectively put their heads together to help 70 individuals, all from the New York...

Ben McAdoo noticing Giants lack of effort

The ball don’t lie, or so they say. The same is true about game tape as the film doesn't lie about the New York Giants, a team and a fanbase that is still trying to digest this past Sunday’s loss to a San Francisco 49ers squad that came into the game winless. Now sitting at 1-8,...
