Reading the Giants tea leaves: March 23rd edition

It certainly has been a fascinating week on the path to the draft and one can make a pretty good case that some of the early picks are at least starting to come into focus. In particular, for those that have been out of the universe we have witnessed a magical mystery QB tour of sorts with the… Read More »

Giants choice coming into focus …

The 2018 draft is still 5 weeks away and admittedly a lot can change between now and April 26th, but after holding their cards about as close to their chests as possible over the past couple of months, the cat looks like it just may be out of the bag this week. Granted nothing is written in stone… Read More »

Giants early free agency draft thots

No surprises here, but heading into the off-season the Giants’ #1 priority was to upgrade the offensive line. And they appear to have at least made a dent with the signing of former New England LT Nate Solder and former Jacksonville OG Patrick Omemah. The biggest splash obviously is Solder who was arguably the top – if not… Read More »

Giants fire top personnel guy

Giants fire top personnel guy … New Giants’ G.M. Dave Gettleman isn’t wasting anytime putting his stamp on the organization. Just after taking over, the Giants have fired longtime V.P. of Player Evaluation Marc Ross. Ross has been with the Giants for 11 years and ran their draft the past 5-6 years. Because Ross has overseen the Giants… Read More »


One of the things I always find frustrating dealing with fans is that too often one gets asked “WTF were they thinking when they did … ?” when the Giants do something they don’t understand or at least don’t agree with. It’s frustrating because one would hope that fans would more often take a few moments and actually… Read More »

Giants checking out QBs

Interesting story earlier this week that Giants co-owner John Mara had literally ordered the team’s football management to get cracking checking out the top QBs in the 2018 draft class. On the one hand, it doesn’t really sound like something that Mara would actually say, but the Giants reportedly did dispatch VP of Player Evaluation Marc Ross to… Read More »

Has McAdoo ‘lost’ the team

If things weren’t bad enough for the 1-7 Giants coming off last weekend’s dismal loss to the LA Rams, but the organization was rocked this week by reports that at least two identified players were quoted as saying embattled head coach Ben McAdoo had lost the team. If true its a huge deal because  once a coach ‘loses’… Read More »

Draft watch: Friday the 13th

ESPN has a doubleheader this evening with defending national champion Clemson playing at Syracuse at 7 PM ET and California hosting 8th ranked Washington State at 10:30 PM ET. And with much of the Giants focus shifting to the future and the draft, there are a couple of players worth an extra look in tonight’s games. Clemson junior… Read More »

How’d we get here??

Woe is us! Indeed! There is probably no one simple answer to how the Giants got to 0-5. Certainly, the media and internet are awash with fingers pointed at the Maras (but not the Tischs), G.M. Jerry Reese, head coach Ben McAdoo, QB Eli Manning, the offensive line, and all the rest of the usual suspects down the… Read More »

Giants post-draft buzz

Got a chance to chat with a guy who is pretty close to the Giants last evening and this was the gist of some of what he had to say. Going into the draft the #1 guy on the Giants short list was Mahomes (more on that below). They were prepared to try and move up if Mahomes… Read More »

Reading the Big Blue tea leaves … and seeing a lot of tea leaves

One of our favorite parts of the pre-draft process is trying to figure out what the Giants are thinking and where they might go with their early picks. Some years we’ve figured it out pretty early, others, though, we haven’t had a clue. With the clock ticking on the 2017 draft, which is now just over a month… Read More »

We stand on OG for thee!!!

We really don’t think the Giants will go into the 2017 draft looking to select an offensive linemen with one of their early picks. (To make a long story short, the Giants obviously have some issues up front, especially on the right side of the line; however, the more likely scenario is that they once again try and… Read More »

Giants bye week review

With the Giants on their bye week it’s as good a time as any to take of the state of the team heading into the second half of the season. On the one hand, the Giants have to be happy enough with their 4-3 record that has them very much in the thick of the NFC playoff chase.… Read More »

Chicken Little on the prowl

Judging by the emails we have received from our fellow Giants’ fans this week in the wake of Sunday’s loss to Washington, one would be thinking that while the world as we know it isn’t actually about to end, but the season is just about done! However, this is one of those times one really likes to be… Read More »

Giants-Dallas review

What a difference a year makes! What a difference a point makes! A year ago the Giants reeled out of a devastating last-second loss in their season-opener in Dallas that somehow set the tone for a second straight disappointing 6-10 record. And it appeared that the Giants just might be in for another heart-breaker in Dallas with the… Read More »

How the Giants ended up with a second Eli and other notes from the 2016 draft …

We’re still not sure of all the details because we never got the full story from one trusted source, but this is our best take on how the 10th pick went last Thursday based on nuggets of information we have been able to piece together from several different sources. Literally from the time that they went to see… Read More »

Sometimes one can’t see the forest for the trees: An alternative theory (of sorts) on the state of the Giants …

Like most Giants; fans we’ve been struggling for weeks trying to make sense of the current state of the Giants. They are 6-8 with two weeks to go in the schedule and needing wins in both of their final two games, plus some help from other teams to have any chance at all of making the playoffs for… Read More »
