David Tyree

No one will ever forget Giants' WR David Tyree's amazing catch vs New England in Super Bowl XLII.

Tyree only managed to play another year after his moment in the spotlight. In fact, that was his last reception as a pro. Since then, he's faded into the background.

But now, thanks to this year's rematch between the Giants and the Patriots, he's more relevant than ever.

David Tyree is a New York Giants legend. He was a solid player for the team on both offense and special teams for six seasons, but it will always be one play that personifies his Giants' career: his amazing, acrobatic catch in Super Bowl XLII.

Yesterday, he was at TIMEX visiting his old team, which is about to make a another run at the Super Bowl from the Wild Card chute. Tyree was asked if this current Giants squad reminded him at all of the team that went on that magical run four years ago...

?Honestly, there were just so many points to this season, some moments that make you say ?hmm'...Even the similarities of the Patriot game between our Patriot game in ?07 in the Super Bowl, the Jake Ballard catch, I believe the score when they played Green Bay was the same score that they lost to New England. So it?s is a lot of cool little markers that you can look at that kind of get you wondering and excited. But more importantly, the New York Giants are playing their best football going into the playoffs.?
The Giants have some new stars, such as DE Jason Pierre-Paul and WR Victor Cruz, who have never been to the postseason, but Tyree doesn't believe that will matter much.

Giants Super Bowl hero David Tyree said in a taped interview recently that same-sex marriage would lead to anarchy. This come days after Giants' co-owner Steve Tisch and former DE Michael Strahan publicly announced their advocacy for SSM.

What does this have to do with football? Nothing. But we are dedicated to bringing you Giants news, and this is what it has come to during the lockout....

Three years ago tonight, the Giants pulled off one of the most thrilling upsets in the history of the Super Bowl.

Highlighted by an improbable catch by WR David Tyree and a relentless pass rush, the Giants - who were 12 point underdogs vs the undefeated Patriots - shocked the football world by topping Bill Belichick's crew, 17-14, in Super Bowl XLII.

When leaving the field, MVP Eli Manning was as excited as Eli could get.

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.

David Tyree Content With Football Achievements

Giants' Super Bowl hero and former special teams ace David Tyree visited the Giants last Friday at TIMEX facility. Tyree told us last month that his football career could be over, but he would entertain certain offers...

"I'm at peace with where my career is at right now. I'm 30 years old and it takes a lot more to be in that optimum shape now. I'm looking for situations where I can be an asset and be the best for myself and my family. There's only a few teams I would like to play for and hopefully it will work out with one of those teams."

Five Minutes With.....David Tyree

Last night at the Filli Ponte restaurant in NYC, I attended a fundraiser hosted by In the Game Collectibles to benefit the Tomorrows Children's Fund.? In attendance were many current and former Giants players.? I will be posting the interviews one a time over the next few weeks...

Myself and Dr. Bill Chachkes (aka Dr. Football) sat down with Super Bowl XLII hero David Tyree, who is currently a man without a team after his contract with the Baltimore Ravens expired earlier this year.

Q: What are you up to these days?? It appears that you are in shape and ready to play. Have you been talking to teams?

The Giants' subs will see plenty of time against the Bears tonight.? In fact, at least five of them will start.

CB Aaron Ross, G Chris Snee, MLB Antonio Pierce,? S Kenny Phillips and DTs Chris Canty and Rocky Bernard are all very doubtful.? CB Corey Webster and DT Fred Robbins may see limited action.

In their place, Terrell Thomas and Kevin Dockery will again be at CB; Kevin Boothe at OG; C.C. Brown or Sha'reff Rashad at S, Jay Alford at DT and Chase Blackburn and Jonathan Goff at MLB.

I realize throwing out a name like Brandon Marshall and asking fans if the Giants should make a move for him is a bit ridiculous, but I've never been anything but ridiculous, so I ask: If the Giants were offered B Marshall (yep I?call him B cause I wanna be?cool like Jim Rome...ugggh) for a 1st and third rounder in?2010 would you pull the trigger?

Marshall was recently sent to the scout team in practice and said he wasn't even close to learning the new playbook. Clearly Marshall wants out, but if we look at the recent history of OchoCinco and Anquan Boldin it is clear?that these polarizing (a 20 dollar word thrown in for no reason)?moves don't usually work out. Denver has been ?adamant that they have no interest in trading the troubled wide-out,?BUT?I WANNA DISCUSS (throwing tantrum)?

Let it be known that Marshall, in 07, had 102 catches for 1325 yards and 7 td's. In 08 he had 104 catches for 1265 yards and 6 td's. Let it also be known that short of shooting himself in the leg with a gun Marshall has had his share of problems on and off the field and this is certainly a MAJOR issue for the Giants front office.

In an ongoing piece from NFL.com titled "On the Fringe," Giants wide receiver David Tyree was the focus of today's article.

The "On the Fringe" articles basically take a player from certain NFL teams that are somewhat proven NFL players being threatened by the possibility of being cut from the opening day roster.

David Tyree fits the bill..

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:

Even though its still more than a month away, the most curious subject heading into training camp has to be the clutter at the wide receiver position. It's not a secret that the Giants will have to make some cuts before the season starts, and Mr. miraculous catch himself, David Tyree could be one of the unlucky ones.

Right now it looks like there are seven receivers competing for spots on the opening day roster. Of those seven players, six of them have four years of NFL experience or less, including two rookies.

And then there's Tyree, who is in his sixth year. As of now, it doesn't look like NFL experience is working as an advantage for him.

Eli Optimistic About Giants' Receiving Options

Eli Manning said he was "confident" that the Giants' receivers would be competitive and and play at a high level but warned that it was important for the rookies to get off to a fast start.

Injuries and holdouts are the most difficult obstacles for rookies, but Eli emphasized that there is also a "learning curve" for new players coming into the league and tempered expectations by adding "We'll try to see what they can do and how they can help us next year."

Super Bowl hero David Tyree's season appears to have come to an end before he was able to even get a chance to step on the field.

According to the SNY newsroom, Tom Coughlin just announced that the Giants have put David Tyree on the IR.

"It's something that, when he started the season on PUP, we felt that at some point in time he would be ready to go. The unfortunate part of this is, over the three-week period when we could utilize David and he could build up conditioning and do all the things necessary, he was really unable to do that for the majority of the time because of the hamstring."

Many are speculating, Superbowl hero, David Tyree may be placed on IR next week, effectively ending his season, and perhaps his Giants career. If so, his final catch in Blue, will go down as the greatest final catch a receiver has ever made. I don't need to look this up, because even if it wasn't his "final" catch, it? would still be the greatest catch of all time.

The sad truth is Tyree simply does not have a spot on the roster. Dominek Hixon and Ahmad Bradshaw have become effective gunners on the special teams unit, and?Big Blue has a gluttony of ?wide outs (Sinorice moss has been left inactive three weeks in a row - after performing admirably against the Seahawks). It is only speculation at this time, but it certainly would be sad to see, last years Superbowl hero, David Tyree on IR. Still, all these roster problems, only means the Giants are that deep. These are nice problems to have.

The Star Ledger reports that there are rumblings that John Carney may have started his last game with the Giants and Lawrence Tynes could return as the Giants kicker as soon as this weekend.

The Ledger also reports that Gerris Wilkinson has a mild MCL strain, and that David Tyree returned to practice today, however he has not been removed from the PUP list yet.

UPDATE 6:49PM: Ralph Vacchiano at the New York Daily News confirms that Lawrence Tynes will resume kicking duties this Sunday and John Carney will likely be cut soon. Carney has made all 12 of his field goals and all of his extra points in his five-game stint with the Giants.

Plaxico Burress showed up to camp today, as expected. He came in carrying his clothes in a trash can, perhaps trying to prove to the Giants he needs money for luggage.

Derrick Ward intends to practice once a day and eventually get involved into workouts that involve contact while he recovers from his broken leg injury.

Coach Tom Coughlin said he does not know when David Tyree will be ready to return to workouts. He's likely headed to the Physically Unable to Perform list.

David Tyree has a lot of competition for a roster spot with the addition of Mario Manningham, and Sinorice Moss unlikely to go anywhere. After Plaxico Burress, Amani Toomer and Steve Smith you have Dominek Hixon, Michael Hennings and D.J. Hall in the mix.

Tyree's arthroscopic surgery on his knee two months ago could land him on the physically unable to perform list, which could keep him out until Week 6. Oddly enough, winding up on the PUP list could be the best thing that could happen to him, considering the number of able bodies competing for the receiving core.

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that Giants WR David Tyree had surgery performed on his right knee last week and might not be ready for the start of training camp in July.

He had the surgery after his knee locked up on him during offseason workouts and an MRI revealed that he tore his meniscus, at least partially.

Doctors told him he could opt not to have the surgery and take his chances for next season. But there was a real chance that if he let it heal on his own, he could make it worse.
