QUOTABLES

“As I’ve tried to say many, many times in the past, we have to deal with reality, too. The truth of the matter is we’ve got to apply ourselves and hope again, I’ve used the word ‘respect,’ that we can gain and earn some of the respect back by virtue of how we play in these last three games and that’s all we can possibly think about right now.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

What they’re saying: Giants vs. Cowboys

Posted by Joe Kania on November 25, 2013 – 3:00 pm

What did the Giants have to say after losing to Dallas on Sunday?

Tom Coughlin

“Good, hard fought divisional game.  It came down to the last couple of seconds. I thought we played hard.  We didn’t make as many plays as we’d hoped.  We drove back in the second half.  We got the ball in the end zone, got the two-point play.  We let them out of the hole a couple of times, rose up and got the ball for the offense a couple of times, which was the only way we were going to have any kind of field position.  Very disappointed.  Players played hard.  They wanted to win very badly.  We were down in the green zone a couple of times in the first half and came away with field goals.  You always hold that in the back of your mind, is that going to come back and haunt you?  Obviously it did.  We rushed the ball very well tonight.  We didn’t particularly throw the ball or have as much yardage as we would have thought with the passing game.  Our defense, I think, had one third down up until that last drive.  We had them in outstanding position there a couple of times, 3rd and 10.  Even the last one 3rd and 10, that’s not gimme field goal, not on a night like this where the ball is hard.  Both teams played hard.  We felt like we obviously had a chance and should have won, but we didn’t.  Credit where credit is due and back to work.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

 

“It’s always tough, you know, when you are on the sideline and you can’t do anything about what’s going on. It’s always painful. I thought our overall game was pretty good. We had some penalties that really hurt us during the game. We had some plays that I wish we could have had back. We just got to keep fighting and try to battle back. We got five games left, play one game at a time and just hope for some other things to happen.” -RB Brandon Jacobs

 

“It’s disappointing. Early in the game we had some opportunities to get some touchdowns and get the lead or keep the game close, and we obviously didn’t execute well enough down there. We had a couple plays where we went backwards, which is always tough, and it makes it more difficult to score. We had third and goal from the 10, so we’ve got to do better down there to get touchdowns and not settle for field goals.” -QB Eli Manning

 

“Yeah it hurts. There’s no doubt about it that it hurts. We can’t hang our head on this loss. We’ve still got five more games to play, we’ve just got to rally up, just keep doing what we’ve been doing the past five weeks. I think our preparation was good, I think our execution was pretty good. Both teams were fighting, someone had to come up short and unfortunately it was us.” -S Antrel Rolle

 

“I think we played our heart out but we didn’t play to our full capability. We made a lot of mistakes out there. When you make mistakes like that, you’re not going to win. We made a lot of mistakes and we just have to move on to the next game.” -Defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul

Giants Week 12 fantasy rankings

Posted by Joe Kania on November 22, 2013 – 1:00 pm

ESPN, Yahoo!, CBS and FOX break down this week’s fantasy football rankings. 

Rueben Randle

For the first time this season, Rueben Randle earned a higher fantasy ranking than fellow wide receiver, Hakeem Nicks.

The gap had been closing in the past weeks; Nicks was No. 30 in Week 11 and Randle was No. 36. Although both earned an average ranking of No. 26 in Week 12, Randle edged Nicks out, 104 to 105, between ESPN, Yahoo!, CBS and FOX’s fantasy football rankings.

Randle was also selected by Yahoo’s Brandon Funston as his Player of the Week for Week 12.

“Definitely put Rueben Randle in your lineup this week,” Funston said. “The guy has had six touchdowns in his last six games and when you look back to what he did against the Cowboys in Week 1, he had five catches and 101 yards. That was his most on the season. The Cowboys give up the most passing yards per game in the league so Rueben Randle, too hot to handle for the Cowboys defense, he is my starter at the wide receiver position this week.”

Funston and Yahoo! awarded Randle his highest ranking of all four sources at No. 20.

WEEK 11 FANTASY RESULTS

But the team’s highest-ranked receiver is still Victor Cruz.

Cruz, No. 9,  found his way back into the top 10 for the first time since Week 8 and was ranked as high as No. 7 by FOX. In the Giants’ Week 1 matchup against Dallas, Cruz scored a season-high 29.8 points and finished as the league’s No. 3 receiver.

Quarterback Eli Manning moved up seven spots, from No. 19 to No. 17, and was ranked No. 8 by FOX while running back Andre Brown landed an average ranking of No. 10 for the second week in a row.

Here’s a look at this week’s fantasy rankings. This week’s ranking is listed in parentheses. +/- indicates the difference between this week’s rankings and last week’s:

GIANTS VS. BEARS: THE FIRST MEETING

Screen Shot 2013-10-09 at 10.27.52 AMThe New York Giants first met the Chicago Bears at the Polo Grounds in New York on Dec. 6, 1925. It was Tim Mara’s first season as the Giants owner and New York’s first season in the National Football League.

But, with a 10-3 record, the Giants fell to Chicago, 19-7. 68,000 paid fans and 8,000 gate crashers were in attendance.

“After seeing the crowd that formed,” The New York Giants Historical Wiki wrote,” Mara decided that under the right circumstances, professional football could be a big success.”

Chicago’s All-Pro quarterback, the 5-foot-6, 150-pound Joey Sternaman, rushed for two touchdowns in the first quarter to put Chicago up, 12-0. Phil White responded for New York with a touchdown run in the second  to cut Chicago’s lead to 12-7 at halftime.

But in the fourth, Chicago put the game away as the legendary Red Grange returned an interception 35 yards for a touchdown to put Chicago up, 19-7.

Grange, who appeared on the cover of the game’s program, is enshrined in Pro Football Hall of Fame as well as the College Football Hall of Fame . A star at the University of Illinois, Grange played a pivotal role in legitimizing professional football in the 1920’s.

He was a member of the Bears from 1925-1934.

New York had a legend of its own on its 1925 team, though he didn’t play in the Giants’ Week 12 game against the Bears.

At the start of the 1925 season, Mara signed 37-year old veteran Jim Thorpe. Thorpe was the biggest name in football at the time of his signing and is widely considered to be the best athlete to ever live.

He won two gold medals at the 1912 Olympics in the pentathlon and decathlon and also played professional baseball for the New York Baseball Giants, among others.

Thorpe played for the first three games of the season for New York before the team released him.

Since 1925, the Giants and the Bears have met 56 times. Chicago leads the series, 32-22-2.

 

QUOTABLES

“You’ve just got to go out there and, honestly, you’ve got to try to do your job. You’ve got to try to make good decisions and have a great plan and execute that plan. There are some plays, whether the defense does something unexpected or a play doesn’t develop how you want to, and you’ve got to make good decisions and play smart and do whatever you’ve got to do to ensure you have the ball that next play.” -QB Eli Manning
