2007 Giants

As far as Super Bowls go, last Sunday's Seattle-Denver was one of the least entertaining of the 48 that have been played. Many are still shocked it turned out to be so one-sided.

Sports Illustrated recently released their list of the Top 10 Super Bowl games, and the Giants appear twice on the list. ?Their upset win over the undefeated Patriots in XLII was voted No. 1 and the 20-19 victory over Buffalo in XXV was voted No. 8. (See list/slideshow)

From an objective standpoint, this list is fairly accurate. I agree with the selections for the most part. For Giant fans, XLII is not their greatest moment, at least in my mind.

The Giants are one win away from another Super bowl appearance. Let?s let that statement sink in for a moment. The team that few if any gave a chance to in August, September, October, November & December?.is again making noise in January, much like the 2007 Giants.

Or are they more like the 1990 Giants?

Sometimes you have to look in the most unique places to find motivation and sometimes that motivation is right in front of your face but you're too close to see it. ? In 2007 Tom Coughlin invited Lt. Col. Gregory Gadson to meet with the team and talk to them about ?service, duty, perseverance and adversity.

Lt. Col. Gadson had lost bough his legs, above the knee when fighting in Iraq.? The former West Point football player gave such a moving and emotional speech that each and every player on the 2007 team reached deep down inside and found something.

Can someone call Tiki Barber?

If Amhad Bradshaw is going to stay the #1 back on the New York Giants he is going to have make some adjustments carrying the ball.

Was the fumble against the Titans the only problem of the game....No.? However, in past 3 seasons Amhad Bradshaw has had 8 fumbles, which is not terrible.? The alarming stat is that through 3 games he has two.? This weeks was significant.

Can you believe it??

Sports Illustrated's? Peter King has predicted the New York Giants to win the NFC East with a 11 & 4 record.?

His reasoning for the prediction...a combination between the "NASCAR" defensive scheme where all four defensive down lineman are pash rushing ends(Tuck, Kiwi, Osi, JPP), Perry Fewell's ability to call a defense similar to the great Steve Spagnuolo and a healthy Chris Canty.

NY Giants cornerback, Corey Webster is very good cornerback. In fact, since 2007 he has been one of the more productive corners in the NFC.? However, I guess I missed the story written by Matt Mosley regarding a challenge from NY Giants G.M. Jerry Reese toward Giants cornerback, Corey Webster.

"He?s got to be the guy we paid,? said Reese. ?He?s got some play-making ability. He?s got to keep it between his ears, keep it right in his head."

"He?s got all the tools to be a really great corner. But he?s got to get it in his head, ?I?m a great corner and I can play against anybody.? When he falls short sometimes, I think he has a mental lapse in his head about something.?

Former Giants WRs Ike Hilliard and David Tyree both announced their retirement today.? Hilliard was the Giants' first round selection in the 1997 NFL Draft out of the University of Florida.

Tyree was the star of Super Bowl XLII, making one of the most memorable plays in recent sports history.

It May Finally Happen.

It may finally be time to toss Moss. The Giants clearly aren?t comfortable letting a current roster member (especially the aforementioned player) take over the return duties. The arrival of Adam Jennings, a depth chart WR but actually a return specialist should end Sinorice Moss?s lackluster tenure in New York.

Several teams, such as the Carolina Panthers, opt to utilize the talent of starting caliber players on special teams. The Giants choose not to but have enjoyed a rare treat in Hixon over the past 3 seasons. Hixon is skilled enough to start as either a returner or a receiver but was stuck in depth chart limbo at 4th option.

I think we can all agree that Jerry Reese is a good GM, who has mostly done his part in providing the Giants with the players that the team needs to win. On the surface it would seem that little of last season?s shortcomings were due to Reese?s personnel decisions, and are more attributable to injuries and bad coaching. But I wonder, if I were to put a number to Reese?s draft and offseason moves, would he average out among the better GMs in league history? Mediocre? Or just plain terrible? Over the next four weeks I intend to apply a letter grade and GPA to Reese?s off season moves and draft picks in order to more realistically tag him as a GM.

We figured during the summer months (aka the NFL dry season) we'd import some video for our readers each Friday to fill some dead air.

Today's video is anything but.? Giants fans of all ages will eat this first selection up with a fork and spoon.

Here is a ten minute clip from NFL Films' America's Game series.

One of the things that surprised me about the Giants 2010 draft was that they neglected to get a RB prospect. It?s not that a team has to walk away from every draft with a back (though they should at least take a viable UDFA every season), but considering both the lack of production in the 2009 season run game and the fact that every giant RB was coming off of a major injury in 2010, it would have been prudent to walk away with something. I?m big into the prospects that make a name for themselves with production in college and I was hoping especially for Joique Bell out of Wayne State.

At any rate, let?s take a look at some of the reasons that the running game fell apart in the 2009 season:

When the Giants drafted a 6?4?, 264 lb running back, I certainly had my doubts about his ability to be successful in the NFL. Primarily, not having much game tape available of Brandon Jacobs, I thought he would be too slow, too lanky, and too heavy to produce consistently. I didn?t even think of the concept that such a huge back with such a punishing style would, in turn, take a lot of extra punishment. I did wonder if he would take too many blows to the legs. He certainly proved me wrong in respect to being too slow, lanky, or heavy. Jacobs has been good for at least 800 yards the past 3 seasons.

As I was perusing the blogs on ESPN.com, I noticed an interesting fact. The New England Patriots have a 15-game winning streak against the NFC dating back to Sept. 18, 2005 when they lost to the Carolina Panthers.

Good thing this is a regular season thing, because I faintly remember a different NFC team beating the Patriots a little more recently. See below:
