Here’s a look at what a few of the New York Giants beat reporters have to say about the team’s upcoming game against the Green Bay Packers:

 

QUOTABLES

“Green Bay is still a good team. The defense, the defensive system that they run. They can bring a lot of different looks and a lot of different stunts, blitzes, things like that and the offense too. They still have Jordy out there, they still have Jones, I believe, is back and they’ve got a lot of weapons with the running game with Eddie Lacy. We can’t lose sight.” -DT Cullen Jenkins

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. RAIDERS

“We don’t make it easy on ourselves, but we did find a way to win, and I think the only way that happens is that the players believed at halftime that [they were] going to win. That’s basically the way it happened. If you look closely, we were minus-one, but we traded off some of the really bad or good plays, and I think that was very much a positive.  We couldn’t have fathomed starting the game off like we did, and then we block a punt. They intercept and score; we intercept the ball and go to their three-yard line. So it kind of went back and forth. Andre Brown certainly… I told you 40 carries the other day, and I certainly didn’t mean to mislead you. It was 30. He gave us what we needed. He had a little spark out there – some power runs. Almost broke free a couple times as well.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“I carried it 30 times? It felt like 50. There were a couple times where I was like, “Ahh,” tapped myself and got out of there but I didn’t know… I guess coach did say… what did he predict, 40? He was 10 off. Yeah, I didn’t expect that many carries but when we’re down there running the ball like we did, I guess you stay on pace and you stay on track. I guess we just keep it rolling.” -RB Andre Brown

“We’re finding ways to win and that’s nice and obviously we’ve won three in a row but we still have to figure out some things. We still have to play a little bit better but we are coming together as a team and finding ways to win games in the fourth quarter and playing a little better so obviously that’s good to see. That’s what we need to do and we’ve got to keep working offensively. The defense has been playing outstanding, they’ve been playing really great. Offense, we’ve got to start being a little more consistent and having some better drives and obviously not putting them in a bind and turning the ball over.” -QB Eli Manning

“Honestly, we really haven’t lost any of that optimism. Even at 0-6 we still felt as though we could still climb out of the hole we were in. We still are in the hole but obviously it feels good to have three in a row here and two more games in a row at home. We’re starting to play with a lot of confidence and that’s something that hopefully we can continue to build on and continue to get back in this race.” -DE Justin Tuck

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. EAGLES

“Good to win in our division. It’s not always pretty but nevertheless our defense played superbly. And I thought in the second half we benefited from great field position, which forced two or three three-and-outs, which prevented them from being able to drive the ball the way they wanted to. The three turnoverswere big. I don’t know what to say about the snap from center. I don’t think I’ve ever seen him [LS Zak DeOssie] do that, not even on the practice field. And the timing was terrible. But nevertheless the first down there at the end with [TE Brandon] Myers was big. We put ourselves in position to make acouple plays at the end. They had no more time outs and of course [SS] Will Hill came through with that play. The first half I thought we really had an awful lot of things going for us; time of possession, I’m not sure exactly what it was but I know it was quite a bit in our favor. But in the first half, regardless of the style, the way that they operated and how fast they play, I thought we did a good job of hanging on to the ball, driving into plus territory. We did settle for field goals which we’re going to have to look at that. Two of those were touchdowns and this didn’t have to finish quite as tight as it did. Nevertheless, we won and we’re excited about winning. That’s two games in a row we’ve won. We’ve played great defense, we really haven’t given up a score, defensively, and there is a lot to be said for the way we are playing right now on defense.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“One thing I understand about being a New York Giant is you have to be even keel through the great days and the not-so-great ones and I think that’s where this football team has been. When we were 0-6, and if you went in the locker room, you couldn’t tell that we were 0-6. This team has always stuck together and always been positive. Right now we understand that we are kind of on a little win streak here but we must be humble and understand that we have a long way to go.  So we can’t worry about what Dallas does or what any team does. We just have to continue to put the blinders on and take one opponent at a time.” -DE Justin Tuck

“I think we did a lot of good things, had a lot of great drives. Moving the ball in the first half and moving the ball right up the field a number of times. We were close on a number of plays that could have been touchdowns, a few plays out of the end zone on some fade balls and different things. We have to get better at that, we have to start converting those into touchdowns and not settling for three points and keeping teams in the game, which we could have built a big lead early, and ran away with this thing—and then towards the end a few big third down conversions. There were some good things. Obviously we’re not making the mistakes that we were making earlier in the season. We’re not turning the ball over, but we still have to find a way to finish the games a little better.” -QB Eli Manning

Daily Blitz (10/20): Eli Manning set to surpass Phil Simms as Giants’ all-time leading passer

ELI MANNING SET TO SURPASS PHIL SIMMS AS GIANTS’ ALL-TIME LEADING PASSER

With 214 passing yards on Monday night, Eli Manning could surpass Phil Simms as the Giants’ all-time leading passer.

Over 14 seasons, from 1979-1993, Simms compiled 33,462 passing yards, 199 touchdowns and 157 interceptions. Manning, midway through his 10th season as the team’s signal-caller, has thrown for 33,248 yards, 220 touchdowns and 159 interceptions.

Already the team’s all-time leader in passing touchdowns and interceptions, Manning, should he play 14 season as Simms did, is on pace to throw for 46,547 yards, 265 touchdowns and 223 interceptions.

Should he reach those numbers, he would finish his career as the No. 8 quarterback all-time in terms of passing yards, No. 11 in passing touchdowns and No. 16 in interceptions.

But those numbers could certainly be higher should Manning play longer than 14 seasons.

Here’s a look at a few other Giants approaching milestones: 

» RB Brandon Jacobs: One shy of 60 career touchdowns

» WR Victor Cruz: Two shy of 25 career touchdowns

» WR Hakeem Nicks: Three shy of 30 career touchdowns

» DE Justin Tuck: 10 shy of 300 career tackles

» DE Jason Pierre-Paul: One and a half shy of 30 career sacks

» S Antrel Rolle: One shy of 50 career passes defended

» CB Corey Webster: One shy of 330 career tackles

 

QUOTABLES

“Field position, the frustration of not getting the short field and then when we’ve gotten the short field, we haven’t done much with it.  It’s disturbing.  The turnovers, you can talk all you want, but it has to happen.  It has to happen on the field.  Take care of the ball, get the ball away from the other guy, get yourself in some field position, take advantage of it. ” -Coach Tom Coughlin

AROUND THE NFC EAST: WEEK 6

The Giants are currently in fourth place in the NFC East with an 0-6 record. The team trails Dallas and Philadelphia by 3.5 games and is one game behind Washington. Here’s a look at how the NFC East preformed in Week 6:

 

COWBOYS (3-3)

» Stat leaders: QB Tony Romo – 176 passing yards, one touchdown and an interception, RB DeMarco Murray – seven carries for 29 yards and a touchdown, LB Sean Lee – 10 tackles.

» Comments: “I sure am (happy the way) the defense responded tonight. That front, I was concerned in the fourth quarter about them tiring and not (being able) to get a lot of substitutions in there (but) they gutted it up. They didn’t tire and they really just kept coming. Rod (Marinelli) obviously had gotten them really motivated and they played a really outstanding game for us. They’re a big part, I was really proud of that bunch out there, the defensive line.” -Owner Jerry Jones

» Results vs. Giants: 36-31 victory in Week 1

» Next meeting vs. Giants: Week 12

 

EAGLES (3-3)

» Division standing: 2nd

» Week 6 result: 31-20 victory over the Buccaneers (HIGHLIGHTS)

» Stat leaders: QB Nick Foles – 296 passing yards and three touchdowns, RB LeSean McCoy – 25 carries for 116 yards, WR Riley Cooper – four receptions for 120 yards and 1 touchdown.

» Comments: “I felt Nick (Foles) did a really great job. What we do offensively, we talked about it all along, we don’t change. He ran our offense, he did a really great job in spreading the ball around to different receivers. I’m really, really happy with how he played today.” -Coach Chip Kelly

» Results vs. Giants: 31-21 victory in Week 5

» Next meeting vs. Giants: Week 8

 

REDSKINS (1-4)

» Division standing: 3rd

» Week 6 result 31-16 loss to the Cowboys (HIGHLIGHTS)

» Stat leaders: QB Robert Griffin III – 246 passing yards and one interception, RB Alfred Morris – 16 carries for 81 yards and one touchdown, WR Pierre Garcon – Six receptions for 69 yards.

» Comments: “In order to win on the road you have to play a complete game. I thought we played some great defense. Any time you’re 0-for-3 in the red zone and have a couple of turnovers to their one, a couple big plays on special teams, you’re not going to win on the road. So that was disappointing.” -Coach Mike Shanahan

» Results vs. Giants: None

» Next meeting vs. Giants: Week 13

 

GIANTS (0-6)

» Division standing: 4th

» Week 6 result: 27-21 loss to the Bears (HIGHLIGHTS)

» Stat leaders: QB Eli Manning – 239 passing yards, one touchdown and three interceptions, RB Brandon Jacobs – 22 carries for 106 yards and two touchdowns, WR Rueben Randle – three receptions for 75 yards and one touchdown.

» Comments: “You don’t know how it’s going to turn out. Right now, the other NFC East teams have two wins and the best record team has two wins. We’ve got to stick together and just keep fighting and keep making improvements and see if we can get on a hot streak, but obviously it’s just take one game at a time and worry about getting that first win and that will be a nice one.” -QB Eli Manning

GIANTS FANTASY RANKINGS: WEEK 5

Victor Cruz, Dunta RobinsonVictor Cruz finished as the league’s No. 3 receiver in Week 4, the second time he has finished in the top three, and breaks into the top 10 for the first time this season in this week’s fantasy rankings.

Cruz comes in at No. 6 and was ranked as high as No. 4 by ESPN. He moved up five spots from his No. 11 ranking in Week 4.

WEEK 4 FANTASY RESULTS

The fantasy experts expect David Wilson to have his best game yet against the Eagles on Sunday. He is ranked as the No. 16 running back, a season-high, and moved up 13 spots from his ranking last week. Wilson entered the season ranked No. 17 but has fallen every week since.

The Eagles allow the 19.2 fantasy points per game to standard running backs, according to fantasy football insider James Morris, and Wilson is expected to carry an increased workload after the Giants cut running back Da’Rel Scott earlier in the week.

Quarterback Eli Manning moved up six spots, from No. 19 to No. 13, and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks moved up five spots, from No. 27 to No. 22.

Tight end Brandon Myers was the only Giant to fall in this week’s rankings, dropping one spot from No. 14 to No. 15.

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

We know we’re the only ones that can fix it and we’ve got to turn this thing around, but I think we still have a confident team and guys believe we can play better than what we are.” -QB Eli Manning

GIANTS FANTASY RANKINGS: WEEK 4

Eli ManningFor the second week in a row, the Giants players are falling in the fantasy rankings, most notably quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.

Manning fell from No. 12 in Week 3 to No. 19 and was bumped down 11 spots by both Yahoo and Fox after he failed to find the end zone in the Giants’ 38-0 loss to Carolina last weekend. He finished with 4.16 points, No. 31 among quarterbacks.

WEEK 3 FANTASY RESULTS

Nicks failed to score any fantasy points in Week 3, the first time he’s done so in 2012, and dropped eight spots, from No. 19 to No. 27. Week 4 is the first time Nicks has been ranked outside of the top 20.

But his fellow receiver, Victor Cruz, is still flirting on the edge of the top 10. Cruz, No. 11, dropped a spot from last week but hasn’t been ranked lower than No. 12 this season. Cruz led the league in receiving in Week 1 when his three touchdown receptions translated into 29.8 fantasy points.

The only areas the Giants did not regress were at tight end and on defense as Brandon Myers (No. 14) and the team’s defense (No. 25) earned the same ranking 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.

ESPN’S JAWORSKI RANKS ELI MANNING NO. 8 ON QB COUNTDOWN

NFL analyst Ron Jaworski continued his evaluation of each starting quarterback around the league, ranking Eli Manning No. 8, one spot ahead of Houston’s Matt Schaub. Coming off his second Super Bowl victory, Manning was ranked No. 5 a year ago.

“After a 2012 season in which he was not quite as consistent in some areas and other quarterbacks improved, I have dropped Manning to No. 8. But there’s no question he remains one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL, capable of big-time throws in critical situations,” Jaworski said.

“While Manning is not No. 1 on my board, there’s no question as he enters his 10th NFL season, he’s a high-level quarterback with all the skills I look for. Manning plays the position the way it needs to be played to be successful. It starts from the pocket. I talked last year about Manning’s improvement in progression reading. One area he doesn’t get enough credit is the pre-snap phase of the game.”

Jaworski added: “In this era of defensive innovation and evolving and challenging schemes, the ability to control the game at the line of scrimmage is a critical attribute. Manning is outstanding at that.

“Manning has reached the point in his career where we no longer need to discuss his play on an annual basis. He’s a steady, consistent, top-level NFL quarterback. He’s smart, he’s aware, and he can handle a high volume of offense. There are not many better quarterbacks than Eli Manning.”

With the remaining top seven being unveiled in the coming days, here’s a look at the countdown as it currently stands:

No. 32 Matt Flynn
No. 31 Jake Locker

No. 30 Kevin Kolb
No. 29 Chad Henne
No. 28 Mark Sanchez
No. 27 Christian Ponder
No. 26 Brandon Weeden
No. 25 Michael Vick
No. 24 Ryan Tannehill
No. 23 Carson Palmer
No. 22 Sam Bradford
No. 21 Josh Freeman

No. 20 Alex Smith
No. 19 Andy Dalton
No. 18 Cam Newton
No. 17 Philip Rivers
No. 16 Matthew Stafford
No. 15 Tony Romo
No. 14 Jay Cutler
No. 13 Robert Griffin III
No. 12 Russell Wilson
No. 11 Colin Kaepernick

No. 10 Andrew Luck
No. 9 Matt Schaub
No. 8 Eli Manning
