Coughlin Curious

Giants News, Notes, and Reflections: Oct 21, 2014

It’s the Giants bye week, their chance to regroup, recharge, and prepare for the grueling end of the 17 week NFL marathon. With injuries mounting for the Giants, their bye couldn’t be better timed and, having lost back to back games to division opponents, it also give the team the opportunity to lick their wounds, […]

Game Review: Giants at Cowboys

The Giants went into their second straight road game against a division opponent with a different mind set than the first. Last week was filled with trash talk from both the Philadelphia Eagles and Giants, to the disappointment and disapproval of Tom Coughlin. This week, there was largely silence, and only talk of focus and […]

Giants at Cowboys: Key to Victory

Against Philadelphia, the only Key to the Game that the Giants accomplished was generating turnovers with two Nick Foles interceptions, but they failed to capitalize on either. The results of the game reflect the team’s poor overall performance, with the game not as close as the 27-0 score would indicate. Next up are the 5-1 […]

360 Picks: Lucky Week 7

360Picks had a better week with Over/Unders, going a respectable 9-5-1 for our best mark of the season, but unfortunately, in an odd week 6 that featured a tie game between the Cincinnati Bengals and Carolina Panthers, our computer got a bug, hopefully not Ebola, and had a bad week with both the straight and […]

Ebola is an insidious virus, pictured above, that causes flu-like symptoms, severe bleeding, and carries a 71% mortality rate. A few cases have migrated across the Atlantic from Africa to the United States, and those poor souls have been in the Dallas area, where the Giants play the Cowboys this weekend. Asked if he’s concerned, […]

Picking the Thursday Night Game: Jets at Patriots

New York Jets at New England Patriots: Line: Patriots by 10 Over/Under: 45.5 Analysis: Last week, the Texans almost came all the way back against the Colts and continued the trend of strong home team performances on Thursday nights. It’s a weaker trend now, but still one that’s worth wagering on tonight. The Jets are […]

Giants News, Notes, and Reflections: Oct 15, 2014

During the off season, as the Giants signed cornerback after cornerback, some asked, “How many do they need?” they already had Prince Amukamara, Trumaine McBride, and Jayron Hosley on the roster, then added Zack Bowman, Walter Thurmond, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, and drafted Bennett Jackson. Looking back, it was a shrewd move by Jerry Reese, as McBride […]

Giants News, Notes, and Reflections: Oct 14, 2014

In the aftermath of the 27-0 thrashing by the Philadelphia Eagles, and the loss of Victor Cruz to a season ending Patellar tendon injury, it was a challenge to find a silver lining for the Giants. As it’s Tuesday, when Giants360 looks at the game stats and subscription only ratings on (PFF), we dug […]

Game Review: Giants at Eagles

Regression is defined by as “The act of going back to a previous place or state; return or reversion.” The Giants regressed in their game against the Eagles last night, to their preseason and opening night form, with both the offensive line getting dominated, Eli Manning harassed every time he dropped back to pass […]

Giants at Eagles: Keys to Victory

The Giants accomplished all 5 keys to victory last week against the Atlanta Falcons, although it took them the entire game to do so. When the final gun sounded, a 20-10 deficit was turned into a 30-20 victory with the Giants surging behind a power running game, an energized passing offense, and a tough, resilient […]
