Giants Sound Angry, But Their Words Are Empty

The New York Giants seem angry today in the wake of their disturbing 17-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night, a loss that may have already torpedoed the 6-4 Giants' playoff hopes.

"We got punched in the mouth and didn't do anything about it," said defensive tackle Chris Canty.

The Giants were angered by their performance, and by the fact that they did not respond when quarterback Eli Manning was brutally slammed to the turf on an un-penalized late hit after he threw an interception.

"I think our response, or lack thereof, was embarrassing," said Canty.

"You don't take (stuff) from anybody. And last night, I felt like we took a little bit," said safety Antrel Rolle. "In order for us to go where we want to go, things are definitely going to have to change."

Problem is, all of this talk comes too late to do the Giants any good. They have now lost three games against teams with losing records, and have a difficult, perilous road ahead to try and make the playoffs. They need to stop talking and start performing.


Giants' Coach Tom Coughlin Rips Into Players

Coach Tom Coughlin did not hide his disappointment with the effort of New York Giants players in Sunday's 17-10 loss to Philadelphia.


Eagles 17, Giants 10: Vince Young Leads Philadelphia Past New York

The New York Giants lost a game to the Philadelphia Eagles, 17-10, Sunday night. In the process the Giants 6-4 also lost their lead in the NFC East. The Giants are now tied with the Dallas Cowboys, who rallied past the Washington Redskins Sunday afternoon.

The Giants and Cowboys meet twice in the final four weeks of the regular season.

Sunday night was a bit of role reversal for the Giants and the 4-6 Eagles. Philadelphia has blown five fourth-quarter leads this season, while the Giants have four come-from-behind victories in the fourth quarter. This time, though, it was the Eagles who made the plays.

Inept offensively for much of the game the Giants finally tied the game at 10-10 when Eli Manning hit Victor Cruz for a 24-yard touchdown with 11:44 remaining.

The Eagles then went on an 18-play, 80-yard drive that took 8:51 and ended with quarterback Vince Young throwing a game-winning eight-yard touchdown pass to Riley Cooper with 2:50 left to play. Young, subbing for the injured Michael Vick, had an uneven game. He was 23-of-36 for 258 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions

After the Eagles touchdown, the Giants drove the ball to Philadelphia’s 21-yard line, but Manning fumbled when sacked by Jason Babin and Derek Landri recovered to seal the game for the Eagles.

Manning completed 18-of-35 passes for 264 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The Giants ran the ball for only 29 yards on 17 carries.


Steve Smith Back To New York? ESPN's Schefter Says It Is Possible

It seems like all season New York Giants fans have been hoping that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Steve Smith would, hopefully, return to the Big Apple after his one-year deal in the city of Brotherly Love expires. Well, according to ESPN's NFL Insider, Adam Schefter, Smith, the former Giant. would welcome a return to New York next year.

"Don’t be surprised if he also returns there next season," Schefter reported on ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown on Sunday morning. "Sources close to Smith say he is open to returning to the Giants next season once his contract expires after this year."

"We know that Eli Manning has a very comfortable relationship with Steve Smith," Schefter continued. "Mario Manningham also is a free agent and there’s a chance that Steve Smith could wind up back in New York with the Giants."

On Sunday, Smith's old team and new team play each other in a critical NFC East showdown at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. This season, Smith has just 10 catches for 110 yards for the Eagles.

Eagles Injury Update: Michael Vick, Jeremy Maclin Out

The Philadelphia Eagles Saturday ruled quarterback Michael Vick (ribs) and wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder, hamstring) out of today’s Sunday Night Football matchup with the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

That means Vince Young will start at quarterback for the Eagles. It also means former New York Giant wide receiver Steve Smith, who has played sparingly for Philadelphia, will receive extensive playing time against his former team.

Vick broke two ribs during last week’s loss by the Eagles to the Arizona Cardinals, apparently suffering the injury early in the game and playing through it for the rest of the game.

The Giants are expected to be without linebacker Michael Boley, meaning the team’s four rookie linebackers could all see extensive playing time. Mark Herzlich, the undrafted rookie from Boston College, could be in line not only for his first real playing tim, but also his first NFL start.


Michael Vick Injury Update: Report Says Vick Out Sunday Against Giants

Michael Vick will not play Sunday against the New York Giants, according to a report published by the Delaware News Journal. The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback suffered two broken ribs last Sunday in the team’s loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

The News Journal reported that despite the team’s contention that Vick was still possible for Sunday’s game, that they have already ruled him out.

The 3-6 Eagles will turn to Vince Young at quarterback. The former starter for the Tennessee Titans, and the player who saddled the Eagles with the ‘Dream Team’ moniker when he signed as a free agent, will be making his first start for Philadelphia. He has thrown only one pass this season, which was intercepted.

Week 11 NFL Lines And Odds: Giants Vs. Eagles

The Giants enter Sunday's contest with the Eagles as four-point favorites. Expect the line to change drastically in the Giants favor if Eagles quarterback, Mike Vick, is ruled out with broken ribs.


Michael Boley Injury: Giants Linebacker Day-To-Day With Hamstring Injury

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday that both linebacker Michael Boley (hamstring) and cornerback Aaron Ross (quad) would be “day-to-day” this week due to their injuries. Coughlin, however, then went on to sound as though he does not expect Boley to play Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

“The guys who are going to play will have an entire week of practicing,” Coughlin said.

When Boley went down before the end of the first half Sunday he was replaced by rookie undrafted free agent Spencer Paysinger, who saw his first extended action of the season on defense.

Paysinger and Jacquian Williams could be called upon to play larger roles if Boley is unable to play. Another concern would be who would call the defensive signals, which Boley has been doing since he is the team’s most experienced linebacker.

The Giants also have rookie middle linebacker Greg Jones. Mathias Kiwanuka moves back and forth between linebacker and the defensive line.
