No tax trouble

Sunday, May 29th, 2005

Plaxico Burress is reportedly no longer in tax trouble. The ESPN.com site is being criticized for not correcting their article faster. They still ahve a link to the incorrect article on their homepage.

Giants off season review

Friday, May 27th, 2005

The Washington Post says that the Giants had a good off season (although they do take a jab at Pierce – the familiar “product of the system” line) but won’t be competitive until the second half because manning is not ready to step it up. I wonder if they watched the last couple games last season…

Giants need a punt returner

Friday, May 27th, 2005

In this Q&A with Ernie Accorsi, he says the Giants need right now is a punt returner. If that’s our only problem, we must be in good shape! Jennings playing in NFL Europe is one possibility at punt returner by the way.

NFL rule change

Wednesday, May 25th, 2005

I know that a lot of Giants fans are upset about the new no horse collar tackle rule but I think it’s the right thing to do. It’s not good for football when injuries are increasing the way they are now so removing one of the plays more likely to cause injury is a good move. Now if they would just get stricter with offensive line blocking…

Giants receiving trio standing tall

Tuesday, May 24th, 2005

Neil Best reports that Toomer is confident he can come back and that the 6’3″ Toomer is the short guy among the Giants 3 main receiving threats: Burress, Shockey and Toomer. Toomer rightly points out that teams with short corners are going to have matchup problems.

Little Giants news

Sunday, May 22nd, 2005

With some uncertainty along the defensive line, the Giants may be interested in Manuel Wright in the supplemental draft. Wright is expected to go in the fourth, or possibly the third according to ESPN. I don’t see why the Giants wouldn’t want him if they can get him for a 4th in 2006. Of course his contract will have to fit in this year’s small rookie cap, but 4th round draft picks aren’t ususally too hard to sign.

In other news, Barret Green had his high school number retired. Way to go Barret!

What do you do when there’s no football?

Thursday, May 19th, 2005

This summer is going to be great for live shows. There are a number of really good shows to see inlcuding The Rolling Stones, the Zooma Tour with Trey and Ben Harper, Paul McCartney, Jack Johnson, Ozzfest 2005 and more. So to help you through the summer dry season with no football, a concert may be in order.

Interview with EA

Tuesday, May 17th, 2005

Neil Best interviewed Ernie Accorsi without getting any new information. The free agents come up and EA talks about their age a bit. He doesn’t give a straight answer on the retirement question either.

The QB puzzle

Sunday, May 15th, 2005

The Giants have reached an injury settlement with Miller, making the Manning, Palmer, Hasselbeck depth chart even more likely. The reason I think Palmer will start off ahead of Hasselbeck is that he knows the playbook better. I imagine there’s not much difference in terms of skill.

Shockey in Miami

Sunday, May 15th, 2005

It’s interesting how the non-New York media can put a positive light on Shockey’s absence from New York:

So far, Shockey’s hard work has earned Coughlin’s confidence. This wouldn’t work if Shockey weren’t prompt in returning the coach’s phone calls to give progress reports. When asked to be at the Giants’ offseason program for a couple days, Shockey cooperated. The coach wants to see more of him at the headquarters as the season draws closer.
