The New York Giants 2020 opponents - *2019 playoff teams.
2020 NFL important dates to follow.
Feb 20 A multi-step plan to address the Giants' biggest personnel needs. The Giants proved in 2014 and again in 2016 that spending like a wild man out of control in free agency is not the way to build a football team. So don't expect them to go crazy this year.
Feb 18 Why the Giants need to re-sign Leonard Williams. The Giants have decisions all across their roster to make this off-season, but perhaps none looms more significant than how to handle the contract for defensive lineman Leonard Williams.
Feb 14 Special Report - As the Giants continue to realign their payroll, decide on roster structure and search not only the available college athletes in preparation for the April draft, they are also attempting to "clean house," as it were, in terms of which players to whom they must bid farewell. This will be determined by two factors - how did they play last season and how much money do they make?
Feb 13 Markus Golden, who last year signed a one-year prove-it deal with the Giants, became the first Giants defender to produce double-digit sacks (10.0) since defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul recorded 12.5 sacks in 2014. He was also the first Giants linebacker to accomplish the feat since Lawrence Taylor last did it in 1990 when he recorded 10.5 sacks.
Feb 11 Darius Slayton already taking steps to building on stunning rookie season. One week after he was on Super Bowl Radio Row - a sign of just how much his star quotient has changed in a year - Slayton met up with Jones on Duke's campus to stay sharp.
Feb 10 Giants head coach Joe Judge announced the composition of the team's 2020 coaching staff. Judge's 20-member staff is comprised of nine coaches who arrived from other NFL teams, including two who were head coaches last season; five who spent the 2019 season coaching collegiate football; and six who were with the Giants last year.
Feb 6 Owning his mistakes: Giants' John Mara insists he can turn the floundering franchise around, but some have their doubts. Their rebuilding process wears on, with yet another new head coach, Joe Judge - a gamble by Mara.
Feb 5 Daniel Jones said last week in Miami that he planned to continue one of Eli Manning's traditions: Gathering Giants wide receivers for some throwing and route-running sessions in the offseason. Given that Manning often ran these sessions at Duke, it made sense that Jones would do the same, given that he actually played at Duke.

Feb 1 Joe Judge's initial Giants coaching staff is almost complete. He has hired all of his primary position coaches, with Sean Spencer (defensive line) being the latest. Some lower-profile hires could still be coming. But the staff is essentially set.
Jan 31 Dave Gettleman stepped to a podium in East Rutherford on Dec. 31 and flaunted the Giants' hiring of "four computer folks" and "software" as the organization's newfound commitment to analytics. "We are committed to being forward-thinking," he said. (Gettleman, by the way, later insisted his analytics taunt was a joke.)
Jan 30 There is a collective groan every time Giants GM Dave Gettleman mentions running the ball or "old school" football. It makes him seem out of touch to a generation dazzled by analytics and some dizzying passing statistics. But building a team around running the ball and stopping the run remains Gettleman's philosophy, and it appears to be one he shares with new Giants head coach Joe Judge.
Jan 28 Giants to hire Freddie Kitchens as tight ends coach: What it means for Evan Engram, Kaden Smith. The 45-year-old joins rookie head coach Joe Judge's offensive staff under new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.

Jan 26 Its unfair to measure an athletes career by such a small segment, but in Eli Mannings case it fits. To understand why Giants fans took to Eli, all you needed was to be there for the 70 days connecting Nov. 25, 2007, and Feb. 3, 2008.
How old is this baby-faced kid? Does he even shave? That was my first impression of Eli Manning. I remember thinking, Im going to have to hold his hand and babysit this kid his rookie year. Boy, was I wrong. It only took a few film sessions with him to realize, This kid gets it. He can read defenses and he understands protections. This is going to fun and we are going to win some games. Looking back, I learned more from him than he probably learned from me.
Jan 25 The Giants started Eli Manning as a rookie in 2004, inserting him in late November. He lost his first six starts. He had three touchdowns, eight interceptions, and a 47.5 quarterback rating in those games - including one game with a 0.0 rating and another with a 16.9. Thats what the Giants were dealing with, entering their Week 17 home game against the Cowboys. "He hadnt done all that much," Mara said. "We all had some doubts: Had we made the right decision?"
Its only right for Eli Manning to be a First-Ballot Hall of Famer. During his 16-year NFL career, Eli Manning did more than enough to be named a Hall of Famer when his time arrives. "Wellington Mara always said, Once a Giant, always a Giant, Manning said. "For me, its only a Giant."
Eli Manning brought the curtain down on his momentous 16-year career at an emotional ceremony and news conference in the fieldhouse at the Quest Diagnostics Training Center, where team president John Mara said, "no Giant will ever wear No. 10 again." Mara also said, "you will always be the ultimate Giant, and we would be honored to induct you into our Ring of Honor next season.
Jan 24 Who caught Eli Mannings touchdowns? Breaking down all the Giants receivers.

Jan 16 The Giants bosses thought enough of Jason Garrett that they planned to interview him for their head coaching job last week. They always knew hed be tough to sell to their fan base, though. Selling him as their new offensive coordinator would be a lot easier. And it would make much more sense.
Jan 14 Blueprint for how the Giants should handle their important 2020 offseason Dave Gettleman and Joe Judge have a daunting task ahead of them as they prepare for an organizational rebuild.
Joe Judges first two decisions were, reportedly, to bring back the special teams (Thomas McGaughey) and wide receivers coach (Tyke Tolbert) from Pat Shurmurs staff. Two other hires (defensive coordinator Patrick Graham and quarterbacks coach Jerry Schuplinski) have ties to Judge from their time in the New England Patriots organization.
Jan 13 Joe Judge will shake up Giants with key Bill Belichick philosphy. "What I learned from Coach Belichick was real simple: Be flexible within your personnel," Judge said. "Dont try to shove round pegs into square holes. Figure out what you have. Let them play to their strengths."

Jan 7 The Giants 2019 offensive line apparently wasnt as bad as some people thought. Thats the opinion of Pro Football Focus, whose Ben Linsey ranked the Giants as the 17th best unit out of 32 teams, topping four playoff teams--Seattle, Buffalo, Houston, and Minnesota--in the rankings.
Jan 6 Now that the Giants have fired coach Pat Shurmur and opted to retain general manager Dave Gettleman for 2020 (though perhaps not beyond that), lets take a look at what Gettleman needs to do, in order to get results from this Giants rebuild.
Jan 5 Matt Rhule is expected to interview for the Giants head coach vacancy as soon as Tuesday. The 44-year-old native New Yorker was an assistant offensive line coach under Tom Coughlin in 2012 and counts Bill Parcells as a mentor. Rhules contractual buyout from Baylor is believed to be more than $10 million and there are questions regarding who he will target as assistants given his lack of NFL experience.

Dec 29 Sunday is expected to be Eli Mannings last game in a Giants uniform and he will spend the day on the sideline, as the backup to rookie Daniel Jones. When Manning exits, after 16 years, those in the building and within the franchise will be left with indelible memories of Eli the quarterback, No. 10, and Eli the person. Here are some of those memories...
reasons why Giants could consider keeping Pat Shurmur for 2020. Shurmur is
9-22 through nearly two seasons with New York. there are definitely things working
in Shurmurs favor and those factors will all get a long look from John Mara and
Steve Tisch early next week.
Dec 27 Two titles, 210 straight starts, one Eli: How Manning conquered New York. For a while there Archie Manning, who had his prime wasted by the hapless New Orleans Saints, wondered whether Eli or the coach, Tom Coughlin, would get run out of town first.
Dec 26 Giants must consider mayhem that comes with another coaching change. Continuity and stability are the hallmarks of any successful franchise, and the upheaval that enters the room when an entire coaching staff heads for the exit is real, disconcerting and counter-intuitive to long-term winning.

Dec 24 The Giants will play their final game of the 2019 season on Sunday. They would like to force the Philadelphia Eagles to do the same. Despite those weighty stakes, the Giants focus in the game will not be how it affects the Eagles, but in playing well and ending the season with a three-game winning streak.
cant fall into this dangerous Pat Shurmur trap. The entire body of work, and
not the uptick the past few weeks, will be the measuring stick to determine Shurmurs
fate, and just like Carlo had to answer for Santino, Shurmur will have to answer
for the nine-game losing streak that spoiled this season rotten.

Dec 20 Wayne Gallmans disappearing playing time is a Giants mystery.
