The Giants aren’t a good football team, and, as the man in charge of personnel, Jerry Reese accepts whatever criticism comes his way for the team’s struggles. Ereck Flowers, Eli Manning, Ben McAdoo, Brandon Marshall, Rhett Ellison and injuries all have received blame when assessing where it all went wrong for a team picked by many to contend for the Super Bowl. If you can’t take criticism, you should quit,” Reese said, via ESPN’s Jordan Raanan.

Instant replay is supposed to make things better in the NFL. Here are three plays in just the past few weeks that were overturned without obvious indisputable evidence. Oakland Raiders head coach Jack Del Rio speaks with referee Ed Hochuli during a game last season.

The 2017 NFL season has hit the halfway point and things are just starting to heat up in the fantasy football world. Unfortunately, the injuries are also piling up once again. The most notable tight end injury was Delanie Walker, who went down with an ankle sprain in overtime. He does have a bye week to rest up, but sprained ankles can linger for up to a month, so Walker’s Week 9 status can’t be taken for granted. His fantasy owners need to start making backup plans. In addition to the injuries, we’ve got a whopping six teams on bye this week — the Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, and Tennessee Titans. That’s a lot of players fantasy owners

The 2017 NFL season has hit the halfway point and things are just starting to heat up in the fantasy football world. Unfortunately, the injuries are also piling up once again. The big injury to monitor at running back is Leonard Fournette. He picked up an ankle injury in Week 7, and despite some early optimism that he could play, the Jacksonville Jaguars sat him on Sunday. The good news is that Fournette should be close to 100 percent after the Jags’ Week 8 bye, so fantasy owners can sit tight on him. In addition to the injuries, we’ve got a whopping six teams on bye this week — the Cardinals, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Los Angeles Rams, New York Giants, and Tennessee Titans. That’s

With six teams on bye, the waiver wire is painfully thin this week. The 2017 NFL season has hit the halfway point and things are just starting to heat up in the fantasy football world. The biggest injury of Week 7 will have ripple effects on the Arizona Cardinals’ offense.

Ben McAdoo is sticking with Eli Manning as the New York Giants' quarterback in what has become a frustrating, lost season. McAdoo made it clear Monday that the Giants' 1-6 record is not grounds for handing the quarterback job to third-round draft pick Davis Webb so the team can evaluate him in regular-season action. There is no question the offense has struggled as it heads into a bye week.

Coming off a weekend of more national anthem protests by NFL players and up against the much-hyped Season 8 debut and 100th episode of The Walking Dead, last night’s Sunday Night Football went full Super Bowl redux but lacked the drama of the big game– and any on-field drama at all. Once more the New England Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons, but in  a 23-7 victory this Week 7 battle became a near non-event. The Falcons dropped their third game in a row and seem unlikely to repeat any OT Super Bowl LI matchup in February, and Atlanta never really had a chance Sunday against Tom Brady and the gang in foggy Foxborough.

President Donald Trump on Monday continued to slam NFL players protesting the national anthem, while criticizing the league’s leadership. “Two dozen NFL players continue to kneel during the National Anthem, showing total disrespect to our Flag & Country. No leadership in NFL!” Trump said in a tweet. According to Sports Illustrated, at least six players on the San Francisco 49ers and one member of the New York Giants kneeled during the “Star Spangled Banner,” while about eight players on the Seattle Seahawks sat during the playing of the anthem on Sunday.

Talk about a clunker of a day around the NFL: There were three shutouts in a span of about 6+ hours, the same number of zeros put up throughout all of last season. With all of the emphasis on offense over the years, with rule changes intended to make
