  • What is going on with the giants and the umps?

    What is going on with the giants and the umps?
    I live in NY and I hate the giants. I hate the organization, I hate the coach, I hate the players (specially the qb) and I hate the fans.
    But the last couple of games whenever there was a close call the umps have ruled in their favor.
    Against the seahawks both TD were not, but today was disgusting, in just one drive they ruled un.rough for a legal hit and then a TD that was down by contact, I saw that without my glasses on.
    T. Barber is a great back but I keep seeing uncalled holdings from their OL.
    Is there something btwn the giants and the nfl?
    Their are an awful team. We had them until we fumbled in their 10. Their schedule is one of the easier and they are in everybodys mouth and now the umps rule in their favor.
    Am I the only one seeing that?

    No you are not the only one seeing it.

    All you need to explain this phenomenon is three words, NEW YORK CITY.

    And while you're at it, compare the colors of the New York Giants and that of the NFL logo. Notice anything?

    Tagliabue would kill to have the Giants in the big game and Eli win the MVP.

      And what about that game against the saints? I'd give our dome to whomever wants to use it as a home field... against us!!

        5 Things the Rams can learn from the Champion Giants
        by AvengerRam_old
        1. Be Patient With Your Franchise QB. Here are Eli Manning's passer ratings for his first four seasons: 55.4, 75.9, 77.0, 73.9. Sam Bradford needs time and weapons. Give him both.

        2. Front 4 Pressure Provides a Huge Advantage. If the Rams can one day generate the kind of pressure the Giants do with their front four by adding some DTs to Chris Long and Robert Quinn, that could become the core of the defense.

        3. Don't Underestimate the Value of BPA Picks. When the Giants drafted Jason Pierre-Paul, they already had Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora and Matthias Kiwanuka on their roster. However, this pick has paid HUGE dividends, not only in terms of JPP's play, but in the way he's helped them maintain their pass rush while Tuck and Osi were injured. Also, with JPP there, a guy like Osi failed in his effort to extort a new contract. You know... maybe I need to consider adding Quinton Coples to my next draft board...

        4. Schemes Should Adjust to Players, Not the Other Way Around. When the Giants won the Super Bowl in 2006, it was thunder (Jacobs) and lightning (Bradshaw) leading the way. This time, it was Eli throwing to Nicks, Manningham and Cruz that got them to the big game. Same head coach, different players, different approach.

        5. Just Make the Playoffs. The Giants (like last year's Packers) demonstrated that the playoffs are really a "second season" where seeding and home field advantage are important, but not necessarily determinative factors.

        New York Giants are rarely at a loss on road
        by RamWraith
        By Jim Thomas
        Thursday, Sep. 11 2008
        Not only are the New York Giants the defending Super Bowl champions, they are
        the reigning road warriors in the NFL. Including neutral site games and playoff
        contests, the Giants bring an 11-game winning streak in away contests to
        Sunday's game against the Rams at the Edward Jones Dome.

        The Giants' last road loss was their 2007 season opener, a 45-35 loss at
        Dallas. Included in the streak are victories over Miami last Oct. 28 in London,
        and their Super Bowl XLII triumph over New England on Feb. 3 in Glendale, Ariz.

        "We've really developed a mentality that was very good for us down through the
        second half of the (2007) season and into the playoffs," Giants coach Tom
        Coughlin said. "It just emerged. When we go on the road, it's obvious that the
        only people that care about you are those that are with you."

        In other words, it's a variation of the old "us-against-the-world" mentality.

        "You have to be supportive of each other," Coughlin said. "We've shown good
        mental toughness and good resiliency. We've fallen behind and we've battled
        back. We've hung in there, and we've won games in the fourth quarter. ..."

        Worse yet as far as the Rams are concerned is the fact that the Giants seem to
        have little trouble playing indoors. Their regular-season record of 22-12 in
        domes is second-best in the NFL among teams who play their home games outdoors.
        Only Washington (25-11) has a better dome record among such teams.

        However, the Giants are only 1-3 in the Edward Jones Dome.


        After a hard-fought 16-7 opening-day victory over NFC East rival Washington,
        Coughlin is guarding against a letdown against the Rams, 38-3 losers to another
        NFC East rival Philadelphia.

        "We have great respect for the Rams and their players," Coughlin said. "And we
        certainly know the Philadelphia Eagles very well and know their capabilities.
        They just had a terrific game the other day, and the Rams didn't play as well
        as they're capable of playing."

        Coughlin said his main concern is having his team show improvement in several
        areas. Concern No. 1 may be finishing off drives. Against Washington, the
        Giants advanced the ball to the Redskins' 6-, 7- and 26-yard lines, but had to
        settle for field goals each time.


        Minus star defensive ends Michael Strahan (retirement) and Osi Umenyiora
        (season-ending knee injury), the Giants have had to retool their front four.
        Justin Tuck is a full-time starter for the first time in his career, replacing
        Strahan. After Umenyiora's preseason injury,...

        Giants imploding, Lose to Titans
        by BigGameMN
        My goodness, the Giants are really going down. Did you guys see the implosion today vs the Titans? Up 21-0 in the 4th quarter and lose to a rookie QB? That was the largest 4th Quarter comeback ever for a rookie QB by the way. But the larger point is that of the Giants season. It seems every week another player is coming out and saying how they got out coached, starting with last year in the playoffs.

        And then there's Eli Manning. I went to school with Eli at Ole Miss and saw almost all his games, and I really thought he might be better than Peyton. He did so much with inferior talent, and Peyton had all the tools to win a Nation Championship but couldn't get it done. But looking at Eli in the pros, it just seems like he's lost out there. His body language is terrible on the field and that has to rub off on the other players. Talk about a season falling apart.....
