Beckham Jr. to 'tone it down' a big mistake - Michael Irvin.
Steve Spagnuolo will now try to improve a defense that allowed a league-worst 230 points in the second half of games in 2014 and went 3-5 on the road.
Beckham Jr. reveals he played season with two tears in hamstring. It turns
out that the Giants rookie receiver, who had one of the most spectacular debut
seasons in NFL history, did it all with two tears in his right hamstring that
still aren't completely healed.
Jan 26 Odell Beckham Jr. gave Giants fans another reminder of why there's so much to look forward to with their prized receiver. Fresh off a season that likely will earn him NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Beckham delivered another "wow" performance in his first Pro Bowl on Sunday night. Beckham made two dazzling catches in the first half.
Mathias Kiwanuka is the most obvious New York Giants cap casualty this offseason, as it's been a long time since his production matched up with his salary and they can save $4.85 million by cutting him.
Giants have fond memories of last Super Bowl in Arizona. From Manning's great escape and David Tyree's famous helmet catch to Plaxico Burress' game-winning touchdown reception and the pass-rush harassment of Tom Brady in between.
Jan 25 Odell Beckham Jr. has been enjoying himself during Pro Bowl week, mingling with the league's best players (at least those that didn't bail on the game), and showing off some of the skills that made him the likely Rookie of the Year.
Ann Mara, the mother of Giants co-owner John Mara, is still recovering after falling and injuring her head last week, the Giants confirmed. The matriarch of Big Blue slipped on ice last Sunday and hurt her head and has been in the hospital since then..
Report - Has the future already begun in Giants Land? Eli Manning is under
contract for the 2015 season and if he doesn't sign an extension, he'll be eligible
to find a new home. There is no way the Giants will let him go, not after this
season and not after next. He just turned 34 and there's no reason to think he
can't play until his late 30s, which means someone's going to have to pay him.
Jan 23 Odell Beckham Jr. will play on a Cowboys-heavy Pro Bowl team. Beckham was the No. 4 overall selection in Wednesday night's Pro Bowl draft -- the second pick of the team selected by former Cowboys wideout Michael Irvin. | Photos
Every position is a position of interest for the Giants scouting staff at the Senior Bowl. Some just have a bit more urgency than others. You can start with the offensive line.
Why the Giants absolutely must draft ILB Denzel Perryman. Let's look at the middle linebacker spot. Veteran and three-time Pro Bowler Jon Beason, who signed a three-year deal to play that spot last offseason, continued to have issues with staying on the field.
Jan 22 Giants likely to address run game in offseason. As the team continues to rebuild its offense, expect the Giants to look for powerful, run-blocking offensive linemen and possibly a veteran, change-of-pace running back.
Live from the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl: Odell gets drafted. Giants.com will follow the rookie wide receiver throughout the festivities leading up to the annual showcase game on Sunday at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale.
Jan 21 The Giants could extend Eli Maning's contract to gain cap space in the short term and keep the QB around for the long term.
With all the holes the Giants have to fill this offseason, the good news is that general manager Jerry Reese will not be hamstrung by salary commitments and should have some money to throw around in free agency, or re-sign some of the team's own free agents. But at least a chunk of that cap space will go towards signing their draft picks.
Evaluating the Giants' 2015 Opponents. Firstly, let's evaluate the six games that come from within the division. All divisional games are tough, but some tougher than others.
Over the last nine months, Odell Beckham Jr. led all non-quarterbacks in jersey sales on the official NFL online shop, according to ESPN sports business reporter Darren Rovell.
Jan 19 Of all the mysteries surrounding the New York Giants since their disappointing 2014 season ended, perhaps the biggest and still as of yet unsolved one is why the team retained special teams coordinator Tom Quinn.
the Steve Spagnuolo hiring reeks of desperation for Giants. Michael Strahan
was still playing that first year Coughlin and Spagnuolo united. Osi Umenyiora,
Justin Tuck and Mathias Kiwanuka were young, fast and serious threats to a quarterback's
health as well.
Jan 16 Almost
six years to the day after Steve Spagnuolo left the Giants, he was rehired
as their defensive coordinator. It's hardly a surprise that coach Tom Coughlin
and the Giants settled on the familiar Spagnuolo. He was always the heavy favorite
to resurface with the team.
Jan 15 Special
Report - Hiring the next defensive coordinator may be the biggest decision
the Giants will make since they decided to retain Coughlin and Reese or since
letting offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride go. Maybe even since hiring of Coughlin
as head coach in 2004, which was a Franchise decision with a capital F since that
was the year they also moved heaven and earth to get Eli Manning.
Coughlin has made it through two straight losing seasons and hasn't been to
the postseason since the Giants won the Super Bowl following the 2011 season.
He likely won't be around a year from now if that doesn't change. "We need
to be a playoff team in 2015," team president and CEO John Mara said on WFAN
to interview Steve Spagnuolo for defensive coordinator job. Spagnuolo, 55,
was the Giants defensive coordinator under Tom Coughlin for two seasons - in 2007
receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was named the Rookie of the Year and Offensive
Rookie of the Year for the 2014 season by the Pro Football Writers Association
on Tuesday. Beckham, the 12th overall pick in the draft out of LSU, led all NFL
rookies and set a franchise rookie record for receiving yards, among many other
milestones reached in a phenomenal first season.
Spagnuolo is coming back to the Giants ... for an interview at least. The
former Giants defensive coordinator who designed the game plan that beat the Patriots
in Super Bowl XLII is expected to interview for his old position this week.
Jan 12 All signs are pointing towards Steve Spagnuolo being the Giants defensive coordinator next season. Four league sources put Spagnuolo as the favorite for the job. All seemed to think it was a strong fit.
next person to interview for the Giants' vacant defensive coordinator position
will be a blast from the franchise's past. Early next week, the Giants will interview
Jan 10 Tom Coughlin is in search of a new defensive coordinator, and that speaks volumes for where the tenured coach is at in his career and with the Giants. I think it's fair to trust him to hire the coordinator who's the best bet for the organization in the long run, regardless of what it means to his own immediate future.
The Giants scored at least 24 points in each of their final six games, their longest such streak in 51 years. They scored 24 or more points in eight consecutive games from Sept. 29-Nov. 17, 1963.
Jan 9 What does it mean? Another year, another coordinator pushed out the door. Make it two in two years. The Giants made a change on the offensive side of the ball after last season's 7-9 record. They made a change on the defensive side of the ball after this season's 6-10 mark. Head coach Tom Coughlin is still there, but there are fewer and fewer familiar faces surrounding him as the Giants look to get back to the playoffs for the first time since the 2011 season.
Buccaneers introduced 32-year old Raheem Morris as their head coach on Jan.
18, 2009. That same day in St. Louis, the Rams held a press conference for their
new head coach, Steve Spagnuolo. Six years later, those two could be going head-to-head
to become the next defensive coordinator of the Giants.
Jan 8 Odell Beckham Jr., the electrifying New York Giants rookie who packed a season's worth of top-wide-receiver stats into three-quarters of a season, will be rewarded with a trip to the Pro Bowl.
week after strongly defending his embattled defensive coordinator, Tom Coughlin
reversed course and fired Perry Fewell -- a move that could clear the path for
the return of Steve Spagnuolo, one of the most popular and successful defensive
coordinators the Giants have had in years.
his two years with the Giants, Steve Spagnuolo's defense ranked fifth and
seventh in the NFL and the defensive surge in 2007 guided the Giants to victory
in Super Bowl XLII, limiting the record-breaking offense of the unbeaten Patriots
to 14 points. Rarely does an organization get the opportunity to call for a do-over,
but the Giants have a chance to bring Spagnuolo back as their defensive coordinator.
Coughlin also dismissed cornerbacks coach Peter Giunta.
Jan 6 The three most obvious takeaways from the 2014 Giants season were - 1) they were not a good team. 2) rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is really good. 3) quarterback Eli Manning had a much better season than the previous year.
Jan 4 There will be plenty of changes that take place before the Giants open training camp sometime in late July. Five burning issues that the Giants need to resolve to get back to the playoffs after a three-year absence.
Eli Manning isn't the 23-year-old kid that landed with the Giants in the 2004 NFL Draft anymore. He's a 34-year-old man who just finished his 11th professional season. Manning turned 34 on Saturday. Have a look at Eli through the years.
Jan 3 Desire for continuity runs deep. If you've been following what's going on with the Giants, you shouldn't be surprised.

Jan 1 Odell Beckham Jr.'s December was just as extraordinary as his November, so it was no surprise when the NFL announced that the flashy Giants receiver won his second consecutive NFL Offensive Rookie of the Month Award. .
Giants announced that they hired Mike Sullivan to replace Danny Langsdorf as their
John Mara didn't directly say Tom Coughlin won't return after 2015 if the Giants fail to reach the playoffs for a fourth consecutive year, and of course he didn't have to. Mara made it clear by doing the following: "He raised the possibility he'll ignore team policy and allow Coughlin to coach out the final year of his contract without a safety-net year tacked on."
Tom Coughlin's time to shape his legacy with the NY Giants. Is he the man who won two titles in the last eight seasons? Or is he the one whose teams missed the playoffs in five of the last six?
Dec 31 Special Report - The Giants held a fully-attended Big Three press conference Tuesday morning -- the trio being co-owner John K. Mara, head coach Tom Coughlin and general manager Jerry Reese -- and as might be expected, all the same questions were asked and all of them went unanswered. But politely.
Pat Hanlon is a ubiquitous presence around the Giants. But in the aftermath of the ugliest loss of the season, the team's PR director made himself scarce from his boss, team co-owner John Mara. The anger steaming around Mara was as thick as a force field. "I didn't want be in the same zip code," Hanlon recalled. Smart move.
There will be no major changes to the Giants' hierarchy after a second consecutive losing season, but that does not mean none were considered. "On the bus after the Jacksonville game," the Giants co-owner John Mara said, referring to a November loss that was the Giants' seventh in a row, "I wanted to fire everybody, from the people in the equipment room and on upstairs. "I was wondering if we were ever going to win again."
There are three reasons why John Mara and Steve Tisch elected to keep Coughlin even though the Giants have missed the playoffs the last three years. Even so, in the final question of his Tuesday news conference, when Mara was asked whether 2015 was win-or-else for a lot of people in the organization, he said ominously, "I don't think that's an unfair statement."
Jerry Reese doled out over $116 million in guaranteed money to free agents last offseason. He does not expect to come anywhere near that kind of mark again. One of the reasons why the impact of that spending spree never affected the record of the team was because most of the free-agent signings were hurt.
John Mara wants Eli Manning to retire a Giant, GM Jerry Reese much more non-commital. The Giants aren't willing to give Manning a free run at their vault. Even after capturing two Super Bowls, there are limitations.
Coughlin, Jerry Reese informed they will return to Giants. There will be no
major changes at the top of the Giants football operations. Head coach Tom Coughlin
and general manager Jerry Reese will return in 2015 despite a 6-10 finish to yet
another season on the outside of the playoffs.
