January 2013


With four Lombardi Trophies to their credit, the New York Giants are one of the most successful teams in the National Football League. But Big Blue's trophy case might be less crowded if not for three fortunate and unforgettable Super Bowls plays. Those three moments altered the history of the Giants and changed the way we look at the Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots, too. Here's a look back at three Super Bowl plays involving the Giants and how they altered NFL history.
CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) -- A former NFL defensive back was sentenced Thursday to seven months in prison for failing to file a federal income tax return for 2005, when he was a member of the New York Giants.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Steve Bisciotti is wearing a plaid sports jacket, crisp checkered shirt and multicolored pocket square. Sunglasses hang from the jacket pocket, and the Super Bowl ring he earned 12 years earlier sits heavily and prominently on his right hand.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Three black former NFL head coaches say the league needs to rethink its Rooney Rule for promoting minority hiring after 15 top vacancies - eight head coaching jobs and seven general manager positions - were all filled by white candidates since the regular season ended a month ago.
Pass rushing end could fit with 4-3 teams like Titans, Panthers or Lions.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- No other uniform would fit Donald Driver.
COMMENTARY | After being forced to make several cuts with the hope of making payroll in 2012, Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has a similar situation on his hands in 2013.
Amani Toomer had a very good career as a receiver for the New York Giants, and he has stayed in the media mostly on NBC SportsTalk through the years, so he has stayed relevant in the media landscape even though his last game was in 2008. And he made it clear he doesn't like Ray Lewis' antics. Really, really doesn't like Lewis' antics. While making it clear that he thinks Lewis is a great linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens during an interview with USA Today , he unloaded on the circus surrounding his play.
San Francisco 49ers receiver Mario Manningham knows that he won't be able to participate in this Sunday's Super Bowl against the Baltimore Ravens in New Orleans, La.
Preparing their respective teams for Super Bowl XLVII might be easier for John and Jim Harbaugh than having to downplay the distraction of becoming the first brothers to coach against one another on the NFL's biggest stage.
