Feb 8 What the Giants can learn from the Denver Broncos winning the 2016 Super Bowl. In a copycat league, the Denver Broncos now serve as the freshly-minted blueprint that everyone's trying to replicate. The other 31 teams can study just how general manager John Elway put it all together. The Giants are one of those teams. They should be examining what Elway did that worked.

The Miami hospital which was treating Pierre-Paul has fired two employees who leaked medical records to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The first father of football, Archie Manning, is here this week to watch his son Peyton play in his second Super Bowl in three years and fourth overall. But he's also thinking about youngest son Eli, the family's other championship quarterback.
Feb 4 The first time Eli Manning watched his big brother play in a Super Bowl, it wasn't a completely pleasant experience. He was consumed, as he later admitted, by jealousy and a desire to be in a Super Bowl of his own.
Eli Manning said he reached out to Justin Tuck when he heard his former teammate and fellow Giants captain announced his retirement early this week after 11 NFL seasons. Tuck played his final two seasons for the Oakland Raiders.
Feb 2 Eli Manning will be part of a pregame ceremony honoring all of the living Super Bowl MVPs. Eli Manning won MVPs with the Giants in Super Bowl 42 and 46.

Odell Beckham Jr. had both feet in bounds when he caught a pass in front of the Patriots' Malcolm Butler in November. Butler then knocked the ball out of his hands. After a review, the play was ruled an incompletion. Never in the game's history has there been so much debate over something so seemingly simple.
It was not all that long ago Jon Beason was the face of the Panthers' defense, the hard-charging, ball-seeking middle linebacker who never, ever missed a game or, it seemed, a tackle. From 2007 through the 2010 season, when you thought of the Panthers, you thought of Beason, a leader on the field and a wonderful representative off it.

Saturday's Senior Bowl could give the Giants an early glimpse into their future. With the NFL draft three months away, there are several players in Mobile this weekend worth looking into.
- Tyler Sash: It was July of 2012 and the Giants were conducting training camp
on the grounds of The University of Albany in upstate New York. They were reigning
Super Bowl 46 champions (seems just like yesterday, doesn't it?) and there was
a swagger to the team, a bounce to the steps of the players and - almost unseen
- a smile on the face of head coach Tom Coughlin.
Eli Manning was the second pick Wednesday in the Pro Bowl Draft - and he's got his No. 1 guy on his side in wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. The New York Giants' duo will represent Team Rice in the NFL's all-star game Sunday at Aloha Stadium.

McAdoo is calling the shots. He just isn't sure who'll be calling the plays.

professional life." Now the work really begins.

Of course, there is plenty of reaction coming in from media outlets across the
is no one happier in the Giants' organization about Ben McAdoo's promotion

Report - When Tom Coughlin was allowed to resign last Tuesday, after another
6-10 season and after 12 years at the controls, the most obvious question - which
was asked - was this: "Why does Coughlin have to go when [general manager]
Jerry Reese is allowed to stay?" Good question, no real answer.

he called a dream job. With nearly 20 current and former Giants players watching,
he made his final appearance after 12 seasons as the team's coach with a typically
passionate and high-energy oration.
GM was spared this week, but Giants owner John Mara made it clear that Reese
must now fix the mess he's made of the franchise. The Giants have gone 6-10 in

Mara seemed to acknowledge that it was because of the roster Reese assembled.

(6-9) vs Eagles (6-9) - Preview
Coughlin will go down as one of the greatest coaches in Giants history, every
bit as important to the franchise as the legendary Bill Parcells. He will have
a place in their Ring of Honor. He may someday get a bust in Canton.
guru gives case for Tom Coughlin - but won't touch Reese. When you are the
man to make the call - yea or nay - on the fate of the head coach, there are two
evaluations more important than anything else.
Mercifully, this is the end, for both the Giants and Eagles. There will be no more games after Sunday for the 2015 season. For the Giants, that means no more heartbreaking losses in the final seconds. For the Eagles, that means no more defensive no-shows late in the season and no more Chip Kelly.
The Giants began 2016 with 21 players on injured reserve and are expected to add more later on Friday. This will be the third straight season the Giants will be at or near the top of the NFL in players with season-ending injuries - they had 22 last year - and Tom Coughlin is perplexed by why that continues to be the case.
They were taken one year apart, both first-round draft picks, selected to anchor the defense for years to come. Jason Pierre-Paul was the No. 15 pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, following a long line of Giants pass-rushing defensive ends. Prince Amukamara was taken with the 19th pick in 2011, designed to become a fixture at cornerback. On Sunday, both could be playing in their last game for the Giants.
Report - Two lousy teams, playing out the string. Playing for pride. Playing
for jobs. Such is the 2015 finale Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium. When the
NFL planned out the schedule last spring, most imagined that this game would be
the battle for playoff seeding and the NFC East title, just as they saw the Washington-Dallas
game, also this Sunday.
When the Giants face the Eagles on Sunday afternoon in the Meadowlands, they won't face the Eagles team that Tom Coughlin expected to see. Why? Because Coughlin wasn't expecting to see Chip Kelly, the Eagles' third-year coach, ousted just days before the end of the season, either.
the choice of saying yes or no when asked if he'd like to be back to coach
the Giants in 2016, Tom Coughlin added to his own ambiguity by declining to give
a definitive answer.
Dec 31 Odell Beckham returns with vow: I won't flip out like that again. He will have the same fire, the same passion, the same intensity. But he won't get crazy anymore.
Jason Pierre-Paul says he blames himself in part for lost Giants season. Pierre-Paul missed the first eight games of the season.
A first career touchdown is usually something that is to be celebrated. Ryan Nassib and Myles White did not get that chance. While it was the first touchdown for each of them, something both likely grew up dreaming about, neither was able to appreciate the accomplishment.
Giants coach Tom Coughlin's future twists in the wind, he says there has been
no talk with co-owner John Mara about how it will unfold.Coughlin seems almost
resigned to his fate at this point. But still he's trying to keep his team looking
straight ahead at the Eagles.
six most damaging moments of 2015. Eli Manning and the Giants had every reason
to be optimistic. Even until very recently.
it appears, is the end of the road for Coughlin after 12 seasons coaching
the Giants. So many times in the past, Coughlin has cooled his hot seat, found
a way to survive, and often thrive.
If Giants lose to Eagles, they will face Rams in London next season. Maybe Sunday's Giants-Eagles game isn't completely pointless after all.
