Bring the Noise! In 2010 The New York Giants bring back the swagger with a fist full of youth...loaded with attitude.  The defense will be under the microscope as new DC takes over the reign of the Big Blue Wrecking Crew. While the names have changed (Pierce, Robbins, Brown, Rouse all gone)...so has the strategy! This Giants team will be younger, faster, and more efficient than the last three years...especially with a pass first league. Impact Player #10 - Perry [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,
If you're a defensive end on the New York Giants in 2010...just expect some drama. I see a dog fight coming and it's going to be interesting to see who wins the big blue battle. Over the years the NFL has showcased some great quarterback controversies and a handful of turf battles among NFL running backs...but have you ever seen an open competition between two recent first round draft picks and a 2x Pro Bowler? Welcome to the stage...Jason Pierre Paul, Mathias Kiwanuka and Osi Umenyiora. Lets start with the resident Pro Bowler, Osi Umenyiora. Osi has been a fan favorite since hitting the scene in 2003. No. 72 was groomed by the best defensive end in NY Giants history, Michael Strahan and the 2x Pro Bowler holds the [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
I'm not sure how many drafts it's gonna take or how many free agents the NY Giants are going to sign but I would like to bring the, "Big Blue Wrecking Crew" out of retirement. The Giants need linebackers that just plain smack you in the mouth.  I want a defense that the entire NFL hates to play against.   Now in the 90th year of existence, the NFL has had some memorable defenses.  The Steelers, The Bears, The Ravens, The Eagles, The Vikings, The Rams and The New York Giants. In 1990 the New York Giants only allowed only 13.2 points a game against a very tough schedule -- they played against seven playoff teams during the regular season. Led by Hall of Fame linebacker Lawrence Taylor.  I want Jerry Reese to have an obsession with linebackers like the Eagles are with [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
Nobody likes being No. 2. But when it comes to being drafted to an NFL team, being No. 2 isn't all that bad.   The entire county focuses on No. 1 draft picks and free agents at this time of year. However, I am sure there a few hundred college football players busting their ass just to be someone's No 2. In looking at the NY Giants draft history, one could say that the Giants' second-round picks over the last 15 years have gone on to become  perennial pro bowlers.  A few familiar faces have gone on to become the face of this historical franchise. The names are impressive: Terrell Thomas, Steve Smith, Justin Tuck, Chris Snee, Osi Umenyoira, Joe Jurevicius, Tiki Barber, and Amani Toomer. So who do the NY Giants take in the second round of the 2010 draft? My [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,
Over the years the New York Giants have found that the keys to success come from all different types of players with different skill sets, from all over the United States. However, Illinois has been especially good to the Giants. Over the past ten years, the Giants have drafted four stellar players from the Prairie State who are currently contributing to the Giants' winning ways. 1. Rich Seubert - Western Illinois With Amani Toomer gone, Seubert—who was drafted in 2000—is the senior statesman on the Giants. He fractured his leg midseason 2003 and was forced to the sidelines for the remainder of 2003 and the entire 2004 season. With a great work ethic and determination, Rich worked his way back into the starting lineup in 2005. Seubert has teamed [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
Sources say that the New York Giants are ready to offer unrestricted free agent, Julius Peppers 100 million dollars for seven years, including a hefty signing bonus.  It has been noted that Peppers and his camp will field a minimum of seven offers by week's end. One year after the Giants were spurned by free agent DT Albert Haynesworth after offering 80 million to come play with Big Blue, the Giants have stepped up their pursuit of a game changing defensive superstar. On January 16, 2009, Peppers spoke very candidly about not re-signing with the Carolina Panthers.  He also expressed the desire or willingness to convert from a defensive end to outside linebacker to fit a 4/3 scheme. [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
February 2010...It feels like a long off season already.  However, as winter turns to spring, I get fired up for some new raw talent that are ready to suit up for Big Blue. Who do we want?  What do we need?   How can we find that sleeper pick?  Yes, the draft and mandatory mini-camp will never come too soon.  I need to get the taste of 2009 out of my mouth. Enclosed you will find some analysis on a few hot prospects... Nate Allen, University of South Florida S ( 6'2" 190 pounds) One of the top safeties on the board and one of the most accomplished defensive players in the history of USF football.  This very experienced player started the last 39 games of his college career, including Bowl [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , , , ,
In 1986, the New York Giants drafted linebacker Thomas Johnson in the second round from Ohio State.  Thomas, better known as "Pepper" Johnson, was notorious for putting black pepper on his breakfast cereal. The name stuck with him his whole life. Johnson was a damn good player.  A two time pro bowl linebacker who loved to hit you in the mouth, while filling a hole.   He was big, nasty, and athletic. He played seven great seasons for the Giants and was a member of both the Super Bowl XXI and Super Bowl XXV [...] Continue reading → | , , , , ,
So what are the 2010 New York Giants going to look like? Well, at this point no one knows what the team general, Jerry Reese has in store. However, since we are ringing in the New Year, lets look at who should be back, who should be starting, and who should be given a bus ticket. It's sure to be an eventful off season for the New York Giants—and because of the way the 2009 season ended, we are all looking forward to changes. Antonio Pierce: Antonio Pierce was an undrafted linebacker out of Arizona in 2001. After four years with the Washington Redskins, AP signed with the New York Giants and was an intricate member of the Superbowl 42 team. The leadership and direction the Giants Defensive Captain brought to the table was [...] Continue reading → | , , , , , ,
