We're pretty sure this is what happened after the Giants beat the 49ers in the NFC Championship game on Sunday. Eli probably got on the phone and called up the Pats to see if they wanted to play a little football at his brother's house in...

Enough with the prognosticating. Giants fans should simply enjoy a ride that might be the best one yet. Everything about the 2011 Giants has been said and said again. And again. Eli is full of crap, how dare he put his name next to Tom Brady’...

By Patrick Snow (@AthlonSnowman on Twitter) It seems like a very counterintuitive question on the surface: Do you want a bye week in the NFL Playoffs? Logically, of course you do. Being a No. 1 or 2 seed means having a top record, one less game...

Tom Coughlin’s seat isn’t necessarily hot. It’s more like lukewarm heading into the final two games of the NFL season. His bosses don’t want to fire him, and they might use any excuse to keep him. It’s also possible that they’ll have no choice...
