    Golden Tate’s practice injury adds to nightmare stretch

    Golden Tate missed one game for putting his foot in his mouth and might miss more because of a knee injury. Tate was hurt late in Thursday’s practice, according to the Giants. Originally scheduled

    The Giants signs of hope that could prevent disastrous season

    The last time the Giants opened their season with a Monday night home game was 25 years ago. Then, as now, the Giants lost. The Giants hope the similarity of starting 0-1 is where the comparison ends. Back in 1995, Dan Reeves predicted the arrival of the Cowboys at Giants Stadium would prove the gap …
  • Darius Slayton emerging as Giants’ No. 1 wide receiver

    Darius Slayton emerging as Giants’ No. 1 wide receiver

    Maybe the Giants have a No. 1 receiver after all. Sterling Shepard, Golden Tate and Darius Slayton were billed as one of the NFL’s most dangerous trios, but a consistent criticism was the group lacked a true game-breaker. Some forward-looking 2021 mock drafts even suggest the Giants will go shopping for a receiver with their …
  • NFL expert’s ‘absurd’ take: Why Giants can win NFC East

    NFL expert’s ‘absurd’ take: Why Giants can win NFC East

    The Giants are kicking off the season Monday night knowing their worst possible outcome was a tie in the standings with the Eagles and Cowboys. The two favorites to win the NFC East lost in Week 1 and issued a reminder that one of the weakest divisions in the league is available for the taking …
  • Giants facing some tough wide receiver roster calls

    Giants facing some tough wide receiver roster calls

    If each wide receiver on the Giants was his own stock, the investing market would be in complete chaos. It seems every day there is a new receiver leapfrogging others and skyrocketing toward the 53-man roster — where just two or three spots remain behind locks Darius Slayton, Golden Tate and Sterling Shepard. That’s not …

    Daniel Jones already showing he’s different kind of Giants leader

    Daniel Jones stood out. He was impossible to miss. There he was, his “no contact” jersey looking like a red dot at the center of a mass of blue and white, breaking down the team huddle before Friday night’s team scrimmage at gray and empty MetLife Stadium. Sometimes quarterbacks do this, but usually they do …
  • Darius Slayton poised to become even greater Giants threat

    Darius Slayton poised to become even greater Giants threat

    There was no one anywhere near Darius Slayton when he sat down for his Zoom call on Wednesday … and he kept his mask on anyway. “Honestly at this point, we wear it every day — it’s habit,” Slayton said. “I just wear it all the way around ’cause we have to wear it in …
  • Amani Toomer unloads on ‘lacking’ Giants wide receivers

    Amani Toomer unloads on ‘lacking’ Giants wide receivers

    It was an every-so-often discussion, and each time Eli Manning artfully navigated around the question, praising while never actually comparing one group to the other. Every few summers, Manning was asked, “Is this the best group of wide receivers you’ve ever had?’’ Before too long, he anticipated this query in training camp and cracked a …
  • Giants rookie Chris Williamson could be defense’s Darius Slayton

    Giants rookie Chris Williamson could be defense’s Darius Slayton

    Easy targets beware: Chris Williamson is coming. Williamson already proved he can deliver a cutting punch line at the expense of childhood-rival-turned-Giants teammate Darius Slayton. Whenever NFL practices resume, the rookie seventh-round draft pick will show he can lower the boom on ball-carriers, too. “He is the one in the meeting room that keeps the …
  • Weighing Giants’ five biggest needs in 2020 NFL Draft

    Weighing Giants’ five biggest needs in 2020 NFL Draft

    The problem with offering an opinion as to what the Giants need most and thus who they must take with the No. 4 pick in the draft is that you are all wrong. Or all correct. The problem is the answer to the “needs’’ question is far too often “Yes.’’ When a team wins three, …
