Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week …New York Giants

Before I start my rant let me say to all Giant fans …Now you know what Knick fans Mets fans and Jet fans have been going through with dysfunction. Now it seems the Giants are now the poster boys of dysfunction. They can’t do anything right, say anything right and can’t even handle their ownContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week …New York Giants”

Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …Carl Banks

Another Giant among many who played with pride for the Giants is…Carl Banks. He played college football at Michigan State University and was the third overall pick in the 1984 NFL Draft. He was a member of the Giants teams that won Super Bowls XXI and XXV as well as a key part of the Big Blue Wrecking Crew. Banks was a standout in their Super Bowl XXI victoryContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Old School Tuesday …Carl Banks”

Smallthoughts:Old School Tuesday…Phil Simms

For you Giants fans if this season doesn’t do it for you perhaps we can travel back in the past and remembere Giants who played with pride. In this case Phil Simms. Current generation of football fans know Simms the commentator, but he really did play for the Giants and was very good. At theContinue reading “Smallthoughts:Old School Tuesday…Phil Simms”

Smallthoughts: Rant of the Weekend…New York Giants

Normally I would save this for my rant of the week but this game and the Giants performance was so disgraceful that I couldn’t let this pass, so this is my rant of the weekend. It was all smiles when Mc Adoo was promoted to head coach from Offensive Coordinator under Tom Coughlin. After goingContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Weekend…New York Giants”

Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week …Ben Mc Adoo

It’s one thing to be a hot shot offensive coordinator on the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants but it is quite another matter when you are the head coach of one of the bedrock franchises in football. Mc Adoo has been under fire this season for his team’s poor performance by it’s 1-6Continue reading “Smallthoughts: Rant of the Week …Ben Mc Adoo”

How did you do with this week’s question?     If you answered, the Buffalo Bills you are correct. The Bills lost 4 straight Super Bowls in 1990, 1991, 1992 and 1993 Ironically all to NFC East teams Giants(1991) Redskins(1992) Cowboys (1993, 1994)

Smallthoughts:Old School Tuesday …Morten Anderson

Kickers usually don’t get enough credit and they are hardly ever recognized until they miss a game winning field (Scott Norwood) yet Morten Anderson was among the very best. He was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in 1982…He is the all-time leader in games played in the NFL at 382; in addition, he alsoContinue reading “Smallthoughts:Old School Tuesday …Morten Anderson”

Smallthoughts:Old School Tuesday …Lawrence Taylor

I was a little surprised that I have not done a Old School Tuesday on LT, and if you are going to talk about hardest hitters Lawrence Taylor has to be on the list. Below are videos of Lawrence Taylor’s hardest hits … Most noted for his hit on Joe Theisman which effectively ended Theisman’sContinue reading “Smallthoughts:Old School Tuesday …Lawrence Taylor”

Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week …New York Giants

Last season at this time, the Giants were a train wreck. They had not made the playoffs …again and Coughlin was forced to retire, the defense had more leaks than the Titanic and Odell Beckham Jr. was completely out of control losing his composure against the Carolina Panthers and Josh Norman. Fast forward one yearContinue reading “Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week …New York Giants”
