Froggy lived in a big grandfather clock and Andy Devine would coax him to come out.

Dec 18 Tom Coughlin and Jeff Fisher have a lot in common. They've been coaching against each other for a long time -- Sunday will be their 19th head-to-head meeting -- and are ranked 13th and 14th, respectively, on the all-time list of regular-season wins by a coach. One win separates them. But the real number that shows the vast difference between the two is 28. That's how many times Fisher has called a fake punt in his career. Coughlin? He's never called one. Ever.

In the spring of 2010, safety Antrel Rolle signed a five-year, $37.1 million free-agent contract with the New York Giants. This is the NFL, where contracts are by definition not guaranteed and very few players see the end of theirs. Rolle is an exception.
For the last five years, he's been the Giants' versatile safety, a steady piece of the Big Blue defense, never missing a game. He's developed close relationships with several teammates, become a mentor to some, a brother to others.
It doesn't matter how young and effective Rolle feels. There are only a handful or so (Ryan Clark, Charles Woodson, Troy Polamalu, Mike Adams, Danieal Manning and Jim Leonhard) starting safeties older than Rolle.
The Giants have a preference for parting ways with players too early rather than too late. They did it with Justin Tuck this past offseason and over the years have done it with everyone from Steve Smith to Osi Umenyiora. They put a value on a player and don't let sentimentality cloud their judgment.

Dec 17 History says it may not end well for Tom Coughlin and the Giants. No matter how much success you've achieved, no matter how many times you've reached the mountaintop, there is an end to every NFL coaching career.
John Mara will be able to tune out fans if he doesn't fire Tom Coughlin. As much as Mara may be one of the last owners in sports who truly cares about what the fans think, he is smart enough to know that he can't run a franchise by mob rule.

With two games left in the 2014 season, the Giants have decided to shut down two of their injured players for good. Linebacker Jacquian Williams and offensive lineman James Brewer, both of whom have been slow to recover from concussions, were placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.
They were replaced on the roster by defensive tackle Dominique Hamilton, who was signed off the Giants' practice squad, and offensive lineman Adam Gettis, signed off the Pittsburgh Steelers' practice squad.

Odell Beckham Jr., Victor Cruz to appear on Rachael Ray show. Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr. have spent minimal time together on the field, just one full game in which they were both healthy enough to play. It's led to a lot of fun projecting what the Giants' offense will look like next year when they are both available targets for Eli Manning. But on Wednesday, you can see the Giants' sure-to-be dynamic duo spending time together in one of the least likely settings you could imagine.
The breakout seasons of Cruz and Beckham share some similarities, but also have their differences. Cruz was an undrafted free agent, while Beckham was the 12th overall selection of the 2014 NFL Draft. Beckham has excited his teammates, impressed his coaches and captivated and energized the fans, just as Cruz did three years ago..

Kevin Gilbride still is not sure why the Giants blew up their entire offensive system and plunked down a brand-new playbook on Eli Manning's lap, when it should have been clear to everyone the issue wasn't the system, it was the players running it.

NFL playoff scenarios: Here's who can clinch a spot in Week 16.


Dec 16 After performing solidly but not spectacularly for the bulk of the season, Jason Pierre-Paul is putting on a mad dash for the finish line, just in time to increase his worth as the Giants close out a bad year and he heads into free agency.
Jason Pierre-Paul's play against the run has been there all year. His pass rush hasn't. That has changed of late. The Giants say they have made adjustments with his technique to improve his power, leverage and speed.

Everyone on the outside may still be fretting over Tom Coughlin's future, but the Giants' two-time Super Bowl-winning head coach isn't thinking about that one bit. "I'm sure that will be dealt with at the right time," Coughlin said.
If Coughlin were to stay, there are indications he would strongly consider replacing embattled defensive coordinator Perry Fewell, whose unit has underperformed most of the season, particularly during an 0-6 stretch against playoff contenders.

Giants - Titans Wrap-Up

Dec 14 A tough season for the Giants has been just as trying for cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Nowhere near 100 percent because of a hamstring/back injury that has limited him since Week 5, Rodgers-Cromartie has watched as players have gone down by the bunches alongside him and the season went into the dumps.

When Ryan Nassib trotted out to Giants practice on Wednesday, the first question he had for the coaches was about the depth chart. He wanted to know who would be starting at quarterback because that would affect his role throughout the week. Not starting at quarterback for the Giants. For Washington.

Former Giants
Will Hill can play at the NFL level. Really well too. He did it as a starting safety for the Giants last season and is doing it again now for the Baltimore Ravens. The question with Hill is - and has always been - can he keep himself out of trouble?

Dec 13 Giants expect to rely on both Rashad Jennings and Andre Williams at running back vs. Redskins.
Jennings' sprained right ankle still isn't fully recovered and is likely to limit his workload in Sunday's game.
Giants rookie: Near death at 2, near stardom at 22.

Through the first three games of the season, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell had seen enough strikeouts from Stevie Brown, who was getting beaten out of position, and they sat him. Brown lost his starting job to Quintin Demps for the next nine games before returning to the starting lineup last week.
Stevie Brown looks to make impact an in secondary. When the teams met on Sept. 25 in FedEx Field, the fifth-year safety had just been demoted from the starting lineup. His participation in the Giants' 45-14 victory was limited to special teams. On Sunday, the teams will meet in a rematch in MetLife Stadium and Brown is once again entrenched in the secondary.

If it wasn't bad enough for Damontre Moore that his shove of Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger cost the Giants a touchdown, now it also cost him $10,000. Moore was fined this week by the NFL for his block of Mettenberger.

Dec 12 Rookie Odell Beckham, who made his Giants debut the week after the win over Washington, is drawing attention as a top threat, and Larry Donnell is attempting to rediscover the form he has yet to repeat since the previous win.
Odell Beckham Jr. threw his first NFL pass last week against the Titans, a deep incompletion intended for Rueben Randle. But that play has been in the works for a long time, Ben McAdoo said. And there will likely be more to come..

One is an emerging superstar. The other, it's fair to say, has been disappointing this season. Odell Beckham Jr. has only played in nine NFL games, and his jersey is already in the Hall of Fame. Rueben Randle is now in his third NFL season, but the former second-round pick has failed to make the leap to the next level in his first year as a starter, replacing the departed Hakeem Nicks.
The former LSU star said don't blame him for his lack of production. "I'm continuing to get open on film," Rueben Randle said after practice on Thursday. "I only control what I can control. The ball comes my way, I got to make a play. If not, I got to continue to work like it's coming my way and be prepared when it does."

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that the jobs of Tom Coughlin and most of his coaching staff are in jeopardy with three games left in the season. A bigger mystery is what Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch plan to do with general manager Jerry Reese, who has presided over the team's football operations since 2007 and has been with the organization since 1994.

Dec 11 The 2010 first-round pick is eligible for free agency after this season and so far has not had any talks with the team about a long-term contract. He insists he's not thinking about it.
One month ago, Jason Pierre-Paul had no idea what the future held for him. But on Wednesday, the Giants' defensive end said he wants the Giants to be a part of it.
Pierre-Paul's remarks were a slight pivot from what he told reporters nearly a month ago when asked a similar question. At that time, Pierre-Paul was decidedly less enthusiastic about the prospect of staying with the home team, saying "If I'm here, I'm here, if I'm not, I'm not."

Several Giants players came up to Devon Kennard during practice Wednesday and congratulated him. Kennard said he didn't know why, so he just said: "Thanks." Later he learned that he had been named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week, the first Giants rookie to accomplish the feat.
The fifth-round draft choice from USC had two sacks, a forced fumble and six tackles in the Giants' victory over the Titans. It was Kennard's second straight two-sack game. Three of Kennard's six tackles occurred behind the line of scrimmage.

Eli Manning will make his 165th consecutive regular-season start Sunday, barring something totally unforeseen happening the rest of the week. But, for a brief moment, Giants fans and followers were left with the thought of seeing Ryan Nassib at quarterback against the Washington Redskins.
Eli Manning was on the Giants' injury report for the first time in three years. And he was so worried that he didn't even know what his injury was. On Wednesday, the Giants' most indispensable player was a surprise addition to the injury report, but not a single person in all of East Rutherford was even the least bit concerned.

Dec 10 Antrel Rolle defended his unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against the Tennessee Titans. After cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picked off Titans quarterback Zach Mettenberger and high-stepped his way to a touchdown, Rolle mimicked snapping pictures of a posing Rodgers-Cromartie in the end zone, drawing a flag. The touchdown would be negated by a separate unnecessary roughness penalty on defensive end Damontre Moore.
Tom Coughlin wasn't a fan of the safety's celebration of Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie's pick-six, and he expressed his displeasure. Rolle, one of the voices of a rudderless squad that's spent all season playing with a lack of -- wait for it -- discipline, barely cared.
Rolle explained his friendship with Rodgers-Cromartie, and the injury struggles Rodgers-Cromartie has endured this season - his first with the Giants - was the real reason for the excessive show of emotion. "We know that's something that's not acceptable, but it goes bigger than us celebrating for an interception for a touchdown,'' Rolle said.
It's not the first time this season that Rolle, a veteran and a team captain, has been involved in such an incident. After the game, he bristled a bit when asked about it. "We're not talking about anything negative today," Rolle said after the Giants' first victory in two months. "It is what it is. We got caught up in the moment. A teammate made a play and we celebrate."

Touchdowns translate for German fans of Markus Kuhn. It's been difficult for Germans to relate to their very few countrymen who are playing in the NFL. Tackles in American football are good. Tackles in soccer get you kicked out of the game. But scoring points, well, that doesn't get lost in translation.

For Giants tight end Larry Donnell, plan had no backup. Donnell finally agreed to seek part-time employment and applied to be a driver for Pizza Hut. He never delivered a single pie. At professional scout Jeremiah Davis urging, the Giants signed Donnell on March 13, 2012. He spent his first season on the practice squad.

Dec 9 Tom Coughlin praises his young players: 'They're starting to get it'. Indeed, the Giants 36-7 win over the Titans was filled with highlights from their young players. Williams broke the 100-yard mark for the first time this season and added a 50-yard touchdown run and a season-high 5.5 yards per carry.
There was Odell Beckham adding to his legend with 130 more receiving yards, struggling running back Andre Williams busting loose for 131 rushing yards, and linebacker Devon Kennard terrorizing the Titans for two sacks.
Rashad Jennings worked out prior to the game, and his sprained right ankle held up well enough for the Giants to let him play.But they knew he couldn't play much, so they listed rookie Andre Williams as the starting running back and Jennings offered a pep talk. "I told him before the game, 'This is your breakout game,'" Jennings said.

Tom Coughlin to speak privately with some players and coach after sideline behavior. After Rodgers-Cromartie high-stepped down the left sideline and danced in the end zone, he posed for pretend pictures with Antrel Rolle as the cameraman. It earned them a trip to the principal's office.
When a team is mired in a losing streak, the sideline dustup like the one featuring punter Steve Weatherford and special teams coach Tom Quinn is used as evidence of frayed nerves and perhaps a head coach losing control of this team. When a team wins the incident is seen for what it is: Two guys blowing off some steam, at each other.

Eli Manning was kept relatively clean on Sunday against the Titans. He wasn't sacked for just the second time this season and only took three quarterback hits, according to Pro Football Focus. It may have been the best he's been protected by his offensive line this season. Of all games, it was kind of curious for him to be in the trainer's room longest after Sunday's. a

Dec 6 Maybe it's karma, or just irony, or simply life in the NFL, but if there's one thing Tom Coughlin has learned in his 11 seasons running the Giants, it's that even he's not powerful enough to control his players' health. NFL players get hurt, and that seems to happen frequently to the Giants, who are once again among the most injured teams in the league.
The Giants have lost nine games. They've also lost a host of players to injured reserve. But no, those two things are not tied together. This is what Tom Coughlin has always believed, and on Wednesday, the embattled coach and his Giants did their best to stick to that philosophy. Never mind that, on Tuesday alone, Coughlin had sent five players to season-ending injured reserve, or that the Giants have had a whopping 20 players on IR this season.

The Giants could be without several key players Sunday at Tennessee, with Rashad Jennings likely among them. Big Blue's starting running back missed a second straight day of practice Thursday with a sprained ankle suffered in last week's upset loss to Jacksonville, and is looking more and more likely to have to sit out Sunday's game against the Titans.
He wants to play, even though he knows that the ankle he sprained last Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars still hasn't completely healed. He wants to play, even though the Giants are 3-9 and can no longer even pretend that they have a shot at the playoffs.

Tight end Larry Donnell knows he has to stop fumbling the ball. But in a case like last Sunday's, when he fumbled as he fell to the ground and tried to break his fall with his free hand, he also knows it's not that simple. Donnell "I know I'm not supposed to land on my neck," Donnell said earlier this week.

If Jason Pierre-Paul has any chance of scoring a big-money contract that once seemed like a lock, he's going to have to add to his sack total. He knows it, too. Asked Friday if it felt good to finally get back in the sack column last Sunday, Pierre-Paul rocked his head back and laughed out loud. Then the Giants' fifth-year defensive end rolled his eyes in a deliberately playful way as if to say, "Well, duuuuhhhhh!"

Dec 5 With injuries befalling defensive ends Robert Ayers and Mathias Kiwanuka, the time has come for Damontre Moore to prove that he was worth the third round pick the Giants spent on him in 2013.
Any analysis of Moore and his playing time must factor in that he's only 22 years old and that the main reason he hasn't seen the field more on defense is that the coaches don't see enough consistency in practice to trust him in games..
The only benefit left in the Giants four remaining games is to figure out which of their young players are worth keeping. At the top of the list is Moore who was thought to be the latest addition to a pass-rushing lineage at defensive end.

Running back Rashad Jennings missed a second straight day of practice Thursday with a sprained ankle, and the team appears to be preparing to play Sunday's game in Tennessee without him.
Unless Jennings makes a miraculous recovery, gets on the practice field Friday and proves to coach Tom Coughlin and the Giants that he's healthy enough to run and cut without restrictions, there will be a new face in the backfield.

The latest Larry Donnell fumble is playing over and over in his head on an endless loop. Donnell and the Giants are trying to fix their problem. But that's not even their biggest concern right now. They're worried about his health first.

Odell Beckham Jr. is proving he's more than just "The Catch." The Giants' first-round draft choice has been named the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month for November as he led the league with 118.6 receiving yards per game and became the first rookie with at least 90 receiving yards in five games in a single month. .

Justin Pugh watched helplessly as Geoff Schwartz was helped onto the cart and taken off the field Sunday afternoon. The Giants will start Will Beatty at LT, Weston Richburg at LG, J.D. Walton at C, Jerry at RG and Pugh at RT. That unit started the season's first 10 games, including the Giants' three wins.

Former Giants
David Diehl was on the line, calling in for a previously scheduled interview. But wait: Why 13 minutes early? "I'm still on Coughlin Time," he explained. Diehl has ended up with three Giants games in four weeks, including Sunday in Nashville.

Dec 4 Special Report - It is interesting to remember that on Jan. 6, 2004, when the Giants hired Tom Coughlin as their head coach, he delivered a rousing, jump-to-your-feet acceptance speech. Among the most stirring statements concerned injuries. He promised to eliminate them, calling injuries "a cancer in the locker room," and since the "pre-Tom" Giants were uncommonly beset by them, it was a sore point with the fans and ownership.
Well, just the other day the Giants placed five more players in Injured Reserve, bringing to 20 the total of disabled athletes for this 2014 season. It is the most in team history and, as Coughlin said the other day, the most he has ever heard of during his career(s) with Jacksonville and the Giants.

When Tom Coughlin was hired by the Giants in 2004, he stated clearly that he thought injuries were "a cancer" and "a mental thing." That was because the previous season under Jim Fassel the Giants had 12 players on injured reserve. This year's Giants almost double that.
This is a more compassionate Coughlin than the one who immediately derided injuries under predecessor Jim Fassel "a cancer" and a mental thing that were part of a losing culture. "I feel badly for any player who has his heart and soul in what he's doing, and is denied that because of an injury. I feel badly for them," Coughlin says, "and, then again, we speak to the opportunity that comes to the next in line."
The Giants have lost nine games. They've also lost a host of players to injured reserve. But no, those two things are not tied together. This is what Tom Coughlin has always believed, and on Wednesday, the embattled coach and his Giants did their best to stick to that philosophy.

The Giants did overhaul their conditioning program this year, incorporating GPS monitoring and scheduled rest days throughout training camp and monitoring things differently during the season than they have in years past. But as Coughlin points out, the issues this year have generally not been muscle pulls or lingering strains.
In a week where the Giants lost five more players to injured reserve, two of the team's walking wounded, running back Rashad Jennings and right tackle Justin Pugh, were adamant that they would suit up Sunday against the Tennessee Titans.
There has been shifting, inserting, benching and rotating the past few weeks on the Giants offensive line. After injuries have taken their toll - Geoff Schwartz and Adam Snyder are now on injured reserve - it's back to the same group that started the first 10 games of the season.

Dec 3 One day after Tom Coughlin put the blame for the Giants' performance this season squarely on his shoulders, the team's co-owner Steve Tisch absolved him of that blame on Tuesday.
For two straight years now the Giants thought they were sitting on a Super Bowl contender when the reality is they had badly overvalued the players on their own roster. What they assembled was a mediocre and flawed team, and when the injuries mounted it was exposed as dangerously thin.
It might not be a coincidence that the Giants' seven-game losing streak began the night that wide receiver Victor Cruz tore his right patellar tendon against the Philadelphia Eagles. But Cruz said that nobody in the locker room is assigning blame, and that the goal for the team is to finish the last four games on a high note.

The Giants placed an astounding five more players on injured reserve, including guard Geoff Schwartz and longtime defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka, who's out for the year with a knee injury and could now be finished as a Giant after nine seasons..

Antrel Rolle was as fired up as he's been all year on Tuesday, using his weekly paid radio spot on WFAN to defend Tom Coughlin and Perry Fewell, place blame for the entire season on players, and even blasting two reporters for taking his postgame comments Sunday out of context.
The Post ran a story with the headline "Rolle condemns the play-calling in Giants' mess of a defense." It was based primarily off this quote after Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles had success running the zone-read on the game-winning drive. "We had an answer for it all game," Rolle said. "We have calls for that that's actually great for that, but we weren't in those calls at the end of the game.
Antrel Rolle is the Giants' most durable and dependable defensive player, but his contract is up after this season and there are no guarantees he will be re-signed if the expected personnel upheaval takes place. "I don't control what's going to happen," Rolle said Tuesday on his weekly WFAN spot. "I just know I still have a lot in the tank."

Dec 2 Tom Coughlin snapped when asked if he'd take another year on his contract right now. "Don't start with that stuff," he said. "I'm not interested in discussing my circumstance." His circumstance is going to dominate the discussion for the next four weeks, however.
Although this will be only the Giants' third losing season since Coughlin took over in 2004, he knows questions may arise about his ability, at age 68, to connect with young players. As he nears the end of his 19th year as an NFL head coach, he need not be reminded about the league's results-driven nature.
The oldest coach in the NFL also admitted to his players that he's never endured a challenge quite like this one, with the Giants having their worst record since 1995, a season in which even Coughlin admitted "bizarre" things have happened. He admitted that he can "understand" the criticism being lobbed his way "completely," but right now, it's not his main concern.

Tom Coughlin chalked up the critical comments some players have made in recent weeks in regard to play-calling as an expression of frustration and not, as he called it, "being disrespectful." Most recently, Antrel Rolle questioned the decisions on the Jaguars' final drive of the game, particularly when it came to allowing quarterback Blake Bortles to run for 31 yards. And wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said he thought the offense needed to keep "the pedal on the metal" and stay aggressive in the second half after taking a 21-0 lead.
In their 12 games this season, the Giants have outscored their opponents, 110-66 points, in the second quarter. But when they come out to play the second half, the Giants seem to be a different team. They have been outscored in the third quarter, 109-34. So what exactly is happening? "I don't have a reason, I don't have an explanation," quarterback Eli Manning said.

On The Game: Game 12
Gamegirl - "Oh my gosh! I was so excited to see the Giants go into halftime with a 21-3 lead. I should have known better, as no lead seems to be big enough until the game is actually over. Last week it was 21-10 over the Cowboys and we ended up with the same result, another loss. If ever a team needed a win it was, well I guess both these teams, but why did it have to be the Jaguars instead of my Giants?"
Mikefan. - "The Giants couldn't contain their excitement or their lead going into the second half against a Jacksonville Jaguars team that barely ever wins a game. There's a song with lyrics - I left my heart in San Francisco. Tom Coughlin may have left his heart and any chance of repeating as head coach for the Giants in Jacksonville where he got his first start."

Nov 30 Jaguars still hold Tom Coughlin in high regard. Tom Coughlin is back where it all began. Not just for him, but for a whole NFL franchise. Sept. 3, 1995. The Jaguars lost to the Houston Oilers, 10-3. "We had a chance to win, too," he said of a loss that still rankles him 19 years and two Super Bowl victories later. Sunday most likely will be Coughlin's final game in Jacksonville.

There are too many head-scratching mistakes. And it's not only during this six-game losing streak. The Giants defense has been doing this since Week 1, when there were mind-boggling breakdowns on the back end in Detroit, no pressure on the quarterback and curious personnel decisions. Thirteen weeks into the season, nothing has changed.
It's several days after the Giants' season all but ended with a heartbreaking loss to the Dallas Cowboys, several days after Ayers was trapped on the sidelines on the pivotal defensive snap of that game. With 1:11 to play, Ayers could only watch as an ineffective Mathias Kiwanuka and an invisible Jason Pierre-Paul barely breathed on Tony Romo, who shuffled, stepped up and hit Dez Bryant for the game-winning 13-yard TD that pulled the plug on a Giants season on life support.
Defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka did not travel with the team to Jacksonville and will not play against the Jaguars on Sunday. Kiwanuka has been dealing with a knee injury for the past month or so, occasionally sitting out practice to give himself some rest. He was listed as questionable, and clearly the team felt he'd be better served resting up this week.
