    Saquon Barkley’s motivated response to Tiki Barber’s ‘challenge’

    No one lights a fire under Giants stars quite like Tiki Barber.

    One of the Giants’ greatest running backs ever is pouring cold water on their current star tailback, just two years after the franchise took him No. 2 overall.

    Saquon Barkley was historically bad for Giants

    Daniel Jones was scrambling for his life and lateraled the ball to Saquon Barkley to salvage something positive on a busted play.

    Joe Judge can’t fix Giants alone

    It is going to take all of them. Every single one. Man-for-man, the Giants do not stack up. Not Monday night in the season opener against the Steelers at empty MetLife Stadium. Probably not the next week in Chicago, or the next week when the 49ers come to town or the next week in Los …

    Breaking down where Giants stand as cut-down day nears

    It is never easy to trim a roster from 90 to 53. This summer, the task is to go from 80 to 53 then figure out how to fill an expanded 16-player practice squad that can be comprised with as many as 10 veterans. The good news for the Giants on Friday: Defensive back Logan …
  • Daniel Jones sharing blame for early troubles with Giants’ new center

    Daniel Jones sharing blame for early troubles with Giants’ new center

    My fault. No, my fault. This is the dynamic playing out this summer as the Giants break in a new center, Nick Gates. This is a position change for Gates, 24, who was mostly a left tackle at Nebraska and played tackle and guard a bit last season for the Giants. Center? That’s brand new …
