TE Brandon Myers makes All-Underrated Team

Posted by Dan Salomone on March 27, 2013 – 9:00 am

Browns Raiders FootballWhile New York gets acquainted with its newest tight end Brandon Myers, the rest of the NFL should be as well. They’ve been missing out.

NFL.com stacked up all the diamonds in the rough and released its All-Underrated Team, which consists of 26 undervalued talents around the league on both sides of the ball. Myers, who recently signed with the Giants after four seasons in Oakland, made the list.

“One of the new Giants, Myers was the Raiders’ most effective offensive performer in 2012,” Elliot Harrison wrote. “His 79 catches from the tight end position led the AFC, yet a lot of people don’t know who he is.”

Here is a look at the rest of NFL.com’s All-Underrated Team:

OFFENSE

QB: Cam Newton (Panthers)
RB: Stevan Ridley (Patriots)
FB: Marcel Reece (Raiders)
WR: Antonio Brown (Steelers); Mike Williams (Buccaneers)
TE: Brandon Myers (Giants)
T: Duane Brown (Texans); Gosder Cherilus (Colts)
G: Evan Mathis (Eagles); Jon Asamoah (Chiefs)
C: John Sullivan (Vikings)
K: Robbie Gould (Bears)
Returner: Marcus Sherels (Vikings)

DEFENSE

DE: Jason Hatcher (Cowboys); Charles Johnson (Panthers)
DT: Kyle Williams (Bills); Henry Melton (Bears)
OLB: Philip Wheeler (Dolphins); Justin Houston (Chiefs)
ILB: Daryl Washington (Cardinals); Sean Lee (Cowboys)
CB: Ike Taylor (Steelers); Greg Toler (Colts)
S: Kenny Phillips (Eagles); Reshad Jones (Dolphins)
P: Brandon Fields (Dolphins)

David Wilson intends to be lead back

Posted by Dan Salomone on March 22, 2013 – 9:00 am

A changing of the guard was set in motion last month when the Giants released running back Ahmad Bradshaw. The six-year vet’s departure jumpstarted the competition for the lead role, and David Wilson, last year’s first-round draft choice by the Giants, has set his eyes on it.

“I mean that’s definitely my intention,” Wilson said Thursday on ESPN NY 98.7FM. “But you’ve got to go in and come into camp and definitely lock the spot down. So I’ve been working hard this offseason so I can give myself the best chance to do that.”

Among others, Andre Brown shares that intention and will also vie for more time out of the backfield. But Wilson believes turning the corner after the bye in Week 11 of his rookie season will give him an edge heading into 2013.

“After that bye week, I took that time to really stay in the meeting rooms extra and definitely catch up,” said Wilson, who had just 18 carries before the break and three games with none. “So after that bye week, I think that’s when I really had a good grasp of what was going on, and I was able to go out there and perform and have some good games and some good moments.”

Wilson went on to finish the year with 71 carries for 358 yards (5.0 average) and four touchdowns, and averaged more than 10 rushes for 60 yards per game in the final four weeks of the season. The increased load was partly due to his role in the blocking schemes, which had been a question mark early on.

“It was pretty fair,” Wilson said of people critiquing him. “When the game’s on the line, the ball is going to be in Eli [Manning’s] hands for him to make the decisions. So in order for him to make decisions accurately, he’s got to be able to stand in the pocket. But as well, it was a part of just bringing me along slow. The coaches weren’t really in a rush. Ahmad was definitely doing his part in making plays for the team, and I guess they didn’t feel like they were going to rush to really get me on the field.”

Of course, the final question remains his role as a kick returner.

Wilson became the first player in NFL history to record 200 kick return yards and 100 rushing yards in the same game with his performance against New Orleans in Week 14. But if he plans on being an every-down back, can he still return kicks?

“That’s definitely one of my passions,” he said. “So I would definitely enjoy being back there and helping in that aspect too.”

Roger Goodell kicks off NFL Annual Meeting

Posted by Giants.com on March 18, 2013 – 9:00 am

goodellCommissioner Roger Goodell opened the NFL Annual Meeting in Phoenix Monday with a presentation to team owners, general managers, coaches and staff.

The theme of the 90-minute session was on where the NFL is headed. Commissioner Roger Goodell said the NFL would focus on investing in the future, embracing and taking on challenges, taking the long-term view and making a difference beyond football.

Goodell posed two key questions: “How are we doing?” and “Where are we going?”

“The foundation is strong,” said Goodell, noting 10-year collective bargaining agreements with players and officials, long-term network television agreements and enhanced agreements with sponsors and licensees. Goodell mentioned that there are 13 stadium projects in the pipeline at a total estimated cost of $5.3 billion.

Following are some of the highlights outlined by the commissioner.

On the league’s emphasis on player health and safety:

“The game is safer and better,” said Goodell. “We are making process and our changes are working. But we have more work to do.”

Goodell said fans are engaging in record numbers, citing:

In the stadium: NFL stadiums are filled to 98 percent capacity.

On TV: NFL TV audiences dominate the TV landscape. Since 2005, primetime television viewership is down 22 percent. NFL game viewership since 2005 is up 24 percent.

Online and Mobile: Digital media platforms have expanded and are growing significantly. Fans are connecting with the NFL in more ways and spending more time than ever.

On thinking long-term, Goodell said: “We have done that in the NFL, and it has served us well. Have the courage to make tough decisions for the best long-term outcome.”

On making a difference beyond football, Goodell said: “As leaders, we can make a difference beyond the game of football. We have something very, very special in this room. Football is about passion. It is about bringing communities together. It is about teamwork and it is about the things that make your franchises successful making us as a league successful. It is about something bigger than ourselves and achieving that collectively.

“But with success comes more responsibility and it requires us to do more. That falls on everybody in this room. It is your personal responsibility as well as the thousands of people not in this room to do your part to celebrate our game to make people proud to be a part of this game.”

Goodell concluded by referencing two groups the league needs to continue to reach.

“One is our players, with a particular focus on our retired players,” noted Goodell. “Make them feel proud that they played NFL football. Make them feel proud and celebrate them to be part of your league and your teams. The second group is our fans. They love this game. We need to make sure they feel a part of it. We need to make sure they feel that same connection to the game. It is an exciting time for the NFL. We have a lot of work to do so, let’s get started.”

Vote: Greatest FA signing in Giants history

Posted by Dan Salomone on March 15, 2013 – 4:12 pm

We at Giants.com just finished counting down the all-time best free agent signings, and wide receiver Plaxico Burress came in at No. 1. But now we want to hear from you, Giants fans. Vote below and let us know who you think was the best free agent acquisition in Giants history.

Here’s a brief look at our top five:

Number 1: WR Plaxico Burress

Originally a first round draft pick (eighth overall) by Pittsburgh in 2000, wide receiver Plaxico Burress signed with the Giants in 2005 and would become Eli Manning’s most productive target as well as one of the heroes of Super Bowl XLII. >>READ MORE

Number 2: QB Kerry Collins

In five seasons with the New York Giants, Kerry Collins became one of the most productive passers in franchise history, leading the team to the 2000 NFC Championship and a berth in Super Bowl XXXV as well as a 2002 NFC Wild Card Playoff berth. >>READ MORE

Number 3: LB Antonio Pierce

Carrying on the linebacker tradition and also wearing No. 58, Antonio Pierce joined the Giants as a free agent in 2005 after spending four seasons with the Washington Redskins. During his five seasons with New York, Pierce led the team in tackles three times, was a three-year captain, a Pro Bowler in 2006, and one of the inspirational leaders of the squad that won Super Bowl XLII. >>READ MORE

Number 4: LB Micheal Barrow

Suiting up for five teams in his career, Barrow joined the Giants in 2000 after playing with the Carolina Panthers and the team that drafted him in the second round in 1993, the Houston Oilers. Barrow started 61 of 62 games in four seasons with the Giants, not including all three postseason games en route to an appearance in Super Bowl XXXV. >>READ MORE

Number 5: C Shaun O’Hara

O’Hara joined the Giants in 2004 — the same year Tom Coughlin and Eli Manning arrived – and became one of the just three centers in Giants history to be selected to at least three Pro Bowls (joining Ray Wietecha and Bart Oates). He was one of the five captains on the 2007 team that won Super Bowl XLII and started all 97 games he played in a Giants uniform from 2004-2010. >>READ MORE
