May 29 Special Report - We have seen it countless times: The stirring photograph snapped 79 years ago of five U.S. Marines and one Navy Corpsman raising the American flag atop Mount Suribachi on the Japanese-held island of Iwo Jima. It is a picture of a moment captured on the fourth day of the month-long battle for Iwo Jima. It symbolized the American struggle in World War II and it literally defined the modern Marine Corps.
May 28 Ranking all 7 NY Giants draft picks from worst to best. The Giants brass was able to address every need the team had and if some of these picks pan out the way we hope, the Giants could be set up very well for the upcoming season and beyond. Now, it's time to look at just how good these draft picks are.
May 26 Newly acquired tight end Darren Waller is embracing the change of scenery and approach from the New York Giants after five seasons with the Raiders. Most notably, Waller feels empowered in the culture that coach Brian Daboll has established compared to those of his previous stops. The Giants have big plans for Waller. He's considered their No. 1 receiver.
NFC East News
May 24 The Giants have spent 10 of their 18 draft picks on defensive players in his first two seasons, including their first overall selections in both years. Nobody was more excited in the Giants' draft room when Schoen moved up one spot and selected Maryland cornerback Deonte Banks with the 24th overall pick last month. The Giants also addressed their biggest weakness - stopping the run - in free agency by signing linebacker Bobby Okereke as well as veteran defensive tackles Rakeem Nunez-Roches and A'Shawn Robinson.
NFC East News
May 23 The New York Giants completed the first of their ten OTA practices Monday as their off-season program moved into Phase 3. It was a chance for the offense and defense to work against each other. It already sounds like the Daniel Jones-Darren Waller connection, which is an important one ahead of the upcoming season, is well ahead of schedule. Waller caught two red zone touchdowns from Jones in 7-on-7 drills and added a third one later in the practice. Not to be outdone, tight end Daniel BEllinger also caught a pair of touchdown passes from Jones in the red zone.
May 20 Four best NY Giants moves from Joe Schoen this offseason including Darren Waller trade.Schoen has been outstanding in improving the NY Giants roster. Not only that, he's also worked his magic in working some mega-deals with some of the team's brightest young talent. With that said, which moves have been the best from Schoen this offseason?
May 18 Expect the Giants to be in the race for the division title after making several impressive offseason moves, including a promising draft class and a new cast of pass catchers for quarterback Daniel Jones. The Eagles and Cowboys will be fun to watch after the offseason moves they made to maintain talented rosters. Philadelphia prioritized the draft, while Dallas visited the trading block. The Commanders are serious about Sam Howell as their QB1. But did they do enough this offseason to help Howell compete in the crowded division? Take a closer look at the NFC East by grading the offseason moves made by the four teams.
May 17 The Giants built their offensive weaponry this offseason not like the Bills did when Brian Daboll was calling their plays but in the image of the Chiefs when Mike Kafka was coaching their quarterbacks: Start with a matchup nightmare at tight end - the trade for Darren Waller - and surround him with shifty tackle-breakers.
May 14 The Giants, according to sources, offered Saquon Barkley a multi-year deal worth $12.5 million a season at the bye week, then increased that number to $13 million with a chance to get to $14 million in incentives shortly after the season. Barkley rejected both deals. Barkley and his camp reportedly remain firm on their $16 million ask, which would make him the highest-paid running back in the league alongside Christian McCaffrey, who has an AAV of $16.02 million.
May 13 In head coach Brian Daboll's second year at the helm, the Giants, who last year had the third easiest strength of schedule (determined by the combined won-loss records of their opponents from the year prior), now are tied for the third-hardest schedule, with the Cowboys and the Patriots. But it's not just the strength of schedule, which some will argue is a bogus measurement, that will be challenging for the Giants. Rather, it's the structure. The Giants will play six of their first ten games on the road. The Giants also are scheduled to play in five primetime games, four of which come in the first six games.
May 12 Five prime time games, including the opener at home against Dallas that will begin a stretch of four in the first six weeks, a three-game November road trip and two meetings in the season's final three weeks with defending NFC champion Philadelphia, highlight the Giants' 2023 schedule.
Seven of the Giants' first 10 games on their 17-game schedule are on the road, which is a first in NFL history since the league added bye weeks in 1990, per FOX Sports' Warren Sharp. Sharp added that the league has never forced a team to play on the road in seven of the first 10 weeks, let alone seven of their first 10 games.
The 2023 NFL schedule has officially been released, and the New York Giants have quite a tall task ahead of them. The Giants begin the season at home on "Sunday Night Football" against the Dallas Cowboys, then head out west for two straight games -- including a short week -- in Weeks 2 and 3 and won't have a bye until Week 13. That's not the tough part, though.
If the Giants want to keep building on their surprising 2022 season, they'll have to do it against the third-toughest schedule in football. The Giants' opponents had a winning percentage of .549 in 2022, with a total record of 157-129-2. The Patriots and Cowboys also are tied with the third-toughest SOS. The Giants also have a very odd schedule break: Seven of their first 10 games are on the road, which you can look at as a difficult break, or a good one, knowing that the majority of their home games come when the team should be rounding into form..
The Giants start with the rival Dallas Cowboys in prime time and finish with the Philadelphia Eagles. It's a much more difficult schedule than last year, ripe with early trips to Arizona and San Francisco, where the Giants plan to stay on the West Coast for the week. Their success last season in the first year under coach Brian Daboll has the Giants with five prime-time games, including four in the first six weeks. And they're prime-time matchups for a reason: the Giants will face the Cowboys, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills.
May 11 The New York Giants will play the Philadelphia Eagles on Christmas Day at Lincoln Financial Field, the NFL announced Wednesday morning in the buildup to the full schedule release. The Week 16 matchup is set for that Monday, Dec. 25, at 4:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on FOX.
May 9 The
2023 NFL Schedule powered by AWS is to be released on May 11.
May 8 First impressions of the 2023 draft class. This certainly seems like a class of smart, tough, dependable young players. Hardly any of these players did anything on the field over the two-day camp, so these are not on-field assessments at all. They are more personal impression from brief interactions.
May 7 The New York Giants wrapped up their two days of on-field work for their rookies, undrafted free agents, and tryout players with another light practice focused primarily on technique work. The players will have a half-day meeting tomorrow morning before being excused. They will then be eligible to join the team again (assuming their respective college semesters are done) on May 15.
May 6 The New York Giants opened their annual rookie minicamp with a light on-field workout that was mostly focused on seeing how well the camp attendees-the seven-member draft class, the seven or so undrafted free agents, the five or so practice squad players from last year, and a handful of tryouts-retained the information taught to them in the classroom.
May 5 The New York Giants have locked up another one of their core stars with another colossal deal. Giants Pro Bowl defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence is signing a four-year, $90 million extension with $60 million guaranteed. Lawrence has started 57 games since he was drafted 17th overall by the Giants and has steadily worked up the ladder to become regarded as one of the top defensive tackles in the NFL -- and now he's getting paid as such.
May 4 Coming off their first playoff victory in 11 years, the New York Giants committed to quarterback Daniel Jones this offseason. His predecessor is of the belief that the 25-year-old signal-caller will deliver for Big Blue. After crediting Jones' work ethic and leadership, former Giants quarterback and two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning expressed that Jones is primed to take the next step.
May 3 Five veteran free agents the Giants could target. There are still holes for the Giants to fill, and the Giants are strapped for cash - that is not a secret. The rookies' cap impact doesn't affect the Giants unit they sign their contracts, and rookie minicamp starts this weekend. The time is running out, but during his post-draft press conference GM Joe Schoen seemed confident they'll find a solution. They're likely going to sign veteran free agents to compete for roster spots. Here are five cheap options the Giants may likely consider to help form a more competitive and complete roster.
Report - Well, Giants Nation, the annual NFL Draft has come and gone, and
if the truth is told, I have yet to read a "Grading how teams did in the Draft"
column that gives Joe Schoen and Brian Daboll (and of course, the entire Personnel
and Scouting departments) anything less than an "A-", with several of them coming
in at "A+."
