What they’re saying: Giants vs. Chargers

Posted by Joe Kania on December 9, 2013 – 2:00 pm

Giants react after losing to San Diego. 

Tom Coughlin

“I just told the team and anybody in listening distance that the major disappointment here today is to have a chance to get into a game where both teams are 5-7 and have a chance to win a ballgame and try to regain some respectability. We had played pretty well five or six weeks in a row and then we came in here today and the first half was just a very, very poor performance. We turned the ball over twice, they scored twice. They missed a field goal. Of course, we were off-sides and gave them another opportunity to make it. They made that. They scored late on us when we didn’t make a call downstairs that we thought was a fumble. We let the clock run down to two minutes, then they challenged and got the ball back. The first half was a major disappointment. I didn’t think we tackled well. We certainly didn’t stop the run. They were very high percentage on third downs the entire game. We came out in the second half and got a turnover on the first play and put it in the endzone. It looked like we were sparked, the way we came out of the locker room after halftime, but it was short-lived. They’ve come by their reputation for time of possession honestly. They have a very good scheme in terms of rushing the ball and throwing the ball at a high percentage and also throwing the ball down the field. They made the big play on us passing in the first half for a touchdown. Although we were in position, we didn’t make any plays

in the redzone. A couple of times we got into third down and distances but we weren’t able to stop them. Then in the second half, right there at the end we were trying to drive to score. We got the ball back with the turnover which wasn’t a turnover, then we turn it over at the end of the game and don’t give ourselves a chance to go down and score. Very, very disappointing loss for us. We have a three game schedule to go. We have three games to work as hard as we can, prepare as hard as we can and see if we can regain some of the respectability we lost today.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“It’s been tough. Obviously today we got down and you try to compete and make some things happen but I haven’t analyzed the whole season but you just try to go game by game and try to make adjustments to get better. After the season we’ll look at it and try to figure that part out but we still have three games to go to try to make some adjustments and get better.” -QB Eli Manning

“We didn’t play together. We had spots where we played decently but then there were some spots where they made some huge plays on third down in the game and they were able to capitalize on some short fields and get some points up early. You can’t expect to continue to start as slow as we did today and last week and come back from that especially against good football teams like the one we played today. We just didn’t play well enough.” -DE Justin Tuck

“It’s difficult but it’s reality. Only thing we can do now is control playing these last three games to really show what we are made of. I don’t like it by a stretch, but it’s reality like I said and we have to face it.” -WR Hakeem Nicks

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:

QUOTABLES

“We kept the same goal every game all season long. It didn’t work out quite the way we wanted to in the beginning and then we were able to win a couple of games because we were playing better football. Three of the four, we didn’t turn the ball over the way we had been earlier. One we did and we’re fortunate to win despite that. We’re playing good, solid run defense. We picked up our run game. Our distribution of run and pass has been better. We’ve had a couple of times when our special teams hasn’t helped us, but then again last week, they did. So we’re playing a little bit better.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

GIANTS WEEK 11 FANTASY RANKINGS

Andre BrownAndre Brown made a believer of the fantasy experts in his season debut against the Raiders on Sunday.

Brown picked up 115 yards and a touchdown on a career-high 30 carries and jumped 20 spots in the fantasy rankings, from No. 30 to No. 10. He scored 17.9 fantasy points, the most of any Giants running back this season, and finished as the league’s No. 5 running back.

“He’s going to be a top 20 running back for me because I don’t see another running back in that backfield getting that many carries,” ESPN’s Eric Karabell said.  “He’s 39 rushing yards away from the team lead and he’s played in one game. Think about that for a minute. Going forward they’ve got Green Bay coming up, I’m going to rank him ahead of Ray Rice and ahead of Trent Richardson. These guys are doing nothing, Andre Brown is a good player. If I knew he was going to get that many touches I would have ranked him higher. Yes — he is a top 20 running back this week and for the rest of the season.”

WEEK 10 FANTASY RESULTS

Brown is the only Giant ranked in the top 10 but the team’s defense is not far behind. The unit earned an average ranking of No. 12, one spot down from last week, but was ranked as high as No. 5 by Karabell and ESPN.

Jason Pierre-Paul“I’d say the Giants are a good streaming defense,” Karaball said. “But they’ve also gotten a lot of luck with the quarterbacks they’ve played. Scott Tolzien will be starting his first NFL game on Sunday and I have to believe he will be good for at least two interceptions and maybe a fumble or two.”

The team’s defense finished No. 3 in the league with 15 points scored in Week 10.

But several Giants are moving in the opposite direction. Quarterback Eli Manning fell five sports, from No. 14 to No. 19, and was ranked as low as No. 23 by ESPN. Wide receiver Victor Cruz also fell, from No. 12 to No. 15. Cruz had been ranked as high as No. 6 in Weeks 5 and 6 but remains out of the top 10 for the second week in a row.

CBS Sports’ three-man panel apparently had mixed emotions about Josh Brown. He was ranked as the league’s No. 2 kicker by one member but received a No. 23 ranking by another. Brown earned an average ranking of No. 18.

SOCIAL: GIANTS PLAYERS ON COLLEGE GAMEDAY

 

QUOTABLES

“With the way things have turned out… and it starts with bringing Brandon back and then Andre Brown got hurt. That was the type of player that Brandon was. We wanted him to be that big, smash-mouth kind of guy and Ahmad Bradshaw to be that change up, but the little guy played like the big kind of guy, speed change up as well and quickness. When Brandon came back for the Chicago game it gave us an uplift in physicality as far as a team and how we were going to play as a team as well as the emergence of our fullback in that situation just trying to be more physical. Now Brandon gets hurt and we bring in another big back just like Brandon, a big physical type guy. And then David Wilson gets hurt and now Michael Cox has to be that guy as a rookie who really gives us that same kind of bang speed changeup kind of guy because Michael Cox has that acceleration and speed and Peyton Hillis has that bang that you’re looking for because that’s what we’ve been built on around here is physicality, so that’s been good. The other thing that’s been good about Peyton is he’s a smart, bright guy. He’s been able to help us out on third down and catches the ball real well out of the backfield and does a fairly decent job of protecting the quarterback.” -RB coach Jerald Ingram

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

THROWBACK THURSDAY: JASON SEHORN’S SPECTACULAR PICK-SIX VS. PHILADELPHIA 

SEHORNIn the 2001 Division playoffs against Philadelphia, cornerback Jason Sehorn recorded one of the greatest interceptions in Giants history, if not NFL history.

“With the Eagles driving just after the two-minute warning,” Philly.com’s Ashley McGeachy wrote, “Sehorn dove in front of a pass from (Donovan) McNabb intended for Torrance Small. Lying on his back, Sehorn punched the ball upward, rolled to his knees, then to his feet, grabbed the ball, and sprinted 32 yards along the left sideline into the end zone.”

Sehorn’s interception put the Giants up, 17-0, with 1:40 remaining in the first half. The team would win, 20-10, and advance to the NFC East championship game and eventually the Super Bowl. Then-coach Jim Fassel said that the interception was unlike anything he’d ever seen before.

“He was juggling the ball, kicking it around,” Fassel said to Philly.com. “. . . I told him, ‘I’ve never seen a play like that.’ I mean, he knocked it in the air, batted it up, caught it, and ran it in for a touchdown. I’ve never seen a guy battle it around like that, and as soon as he gets up and the guy starts to hit him, he makes the play.”

Sehorn said that his third interception of the season was less miraculous and more instinctive.

“They were trying out routes, not throwing deep,” Sehorn said to the Associated Press. “I was able to break on the ball. It hit my hands and kind of popped up. I was laying on my back and saw it. I don’t know, my reaction was just to pop it up and to hit it again. I saw how high it went, so I got up and it was still there. Your instinct is just to bat it. It’s not something you practice doing. It happened to stay there for a while.”

The play was selected by Bleacher Report as the No. 2 greatest interception in recent memory in their Top 20 countdown in 2011.

“This interception is one of the most ridiculous you will ever see,” Jordan Faries wrote, “and is nearly impossible to describe… and yes, I realize this doesn’t really qualify as ‘recent history’ as it happened ten years ago.  But it’s too awesome not to be included.”

It was also selected by the New York Times as the No. 8 greatest play in Giants Stadium history.

Sehorn played eight season for the Giants, from 1994 to 2002, and played one year for the Rams before retiring in 2003. He finished his career with 19 interceptions and four returns for touchdowns.

 

QUOTABLES

“The Eagles, of course, offensively have put some outstanding numbers up. They continue to do so and the last week wasn’t one of those types of days for them. However, they still lead the league in rushing. They’ve got all kinds of numbers. I think the one thing that I would say is the way in which their defense has played. If you take away those first four games and just zoom on these last three games, they’ve played extremely well on defense, averaging and giving up only 19 points a game and have done a good overall job. Their special teams is consistent. They have an outstanding (special) teamers, returners. If number 10 (DeSean Jackson) goes back their on punt return, obviously we all know what he’s capable of doing there. We’re in the division. Chip Kelly has got them off to a good solid start this year. He’s done an outstanding job and here we go.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING: GIANTS VS. VIKINGS

“We came into the game; obviously we had to stop the run. We did a good job of that. I think they had 30 yards rushing. We had 32 attempts, not a lot of yards, but we were able to continue to try and run the ball, which I think helps balance it out much better for us. We had the one turnover on the punt, which was just fundamentals. The ball was in the inside arm and the ball came out over there. We got one back, which was nice. It was a point blank type of a play. Peyton Hillis did an outstanding job of coming on right off of the workout, into a uniform, and right on the field. He did a good job. Michael Cox did his role and his part as well. We didn’t have the turnovers, we got a couple, we got the ball down inside, we’d like to score touchdowns there when we kicked field goals, but we were trying to get to a point where we were at least up two touchdowns. So, obviously it’s nice to win and hopefully it’ll give us some excitement, some enthusiasm, about coming to work this week, a short week preparing to play  in the division this weekend.” -Coach Tom Coughlin

“This is a resilient bunch, I’ve been saying that all year long. We fight, scratch and we’re going to do everything we can to kind of be in that game right at the very end and try to be in the position to win this thing. We just pulled through, fought through every play, every time. Even when things weren’t going our way a couple of times throughout the game, we just kept fighting.” -WR Victor Cruz

“I thought we got off to a good start on the opening drive with 17 plays and we ran out 10 minutes. I hated that we had to settle for a field goal because we just missed Hakeem there for a touchdown. It would have been a good way to start the game, but I thought we at least ran the clock and wore out their defense a little bit and did those things, but I thought we ran the ball well. It was efficient. We didn’t have limited yards and we were getting some positive yards. We got in some third-and-(manageable) situations and we were able to convert those. There were some good plays and some really good things, and most importantly, no turnovers on the offensive side. Defense played outstanding and continued to do their job, and we made enough plays to win the game.” -QB Eli Manning

“I think I’m going to be a little sore tomorrow, but it was great to get out there and run that football and play in front of the New York crowd like that, it was spectacular.” -RB Peyton Hillis
