Kevin Boothe, Andre Brown promote Read Across America

Posted by Dan Salomone on July 11, 2013 – 2:59 pm

Each year, the Giants are proud to participate in the National Education Association’s “Read Across America” program by visiting numerous schools in the greater Metropolitan area. Continuing the tradition this offseason, players like Kevin Boothe and Stevie Brown put down their playbooks for a day and traded them in for Dr. Seuss stories to read to students at local schools.

Boothe, who was a three-time All-Ivy League offensive lineman at Cornell and knows the value of school at a young age, read to students at Huber Street Elementary School in Secaucus, N.J.

“Reading is very important,” Boothe said. “And in order to achieve your goals in life, it all begins here in school and with reading. To see their energy and their passion, it’s great. I enjoy coming to schools every year, and it’s been a blast.”

“When you see someone like Kevin Boothe come out and say that he would love to be here to read, these kids, their eyes open up and say, ‘Wow, this is a New York Giant that loves to read,’” said Linda Wilhelm, principal of Huber Street. “So to have him come out here to foster the love of reading is really important to all of us.”

Meanwhile, Brown, a product of the University of Michigan, pulled up a seat in front of hundreds of third and fourth graders gathered in the Lyndhurst High School gymnasium.

“It’s always good to give back to the community because they come to support us,” Brown said. “So it’s the least we can do – come back to and give back to them. I still read now for fun, so it’s good if they start young…You get to see the excitement they have and how much joy they have just seeing us come.”

Hynoski teaches TD dance on-air

Posted by Dan Salomone on January 23, 2013 – 10:46 am

hynoski

The set of Fox 5’s “Good Day New York” received a special demonstration Wednesday morning from Giants fullback Henry Hynoski, who showed off the touchdown dance he unveiled in the regular-season finale against Philadelphia.

It’s called the Hy-noceros, and all it takes is a horn, three kicks, and a roar.

“It’s pretty simple, but it worked out,” Hynoski said on the morning show.

Hynoski is one of five Giants taking over guest anchoring duties this week on the station. Defensive tackle Chris Canty and punter Steve Weatheford began the week, and tight end Martellus Bennett and safety Stevie Brown will help host on Thursday and Friday, respectively.

“We would much rather be playing football right now, believe me,” Weatherford said about watching the postseason. “I went through [winning the Super Bowl] one year ago. It’s so fresh in my mind…It wasn’t until right now that I really appreciated how special that really was.”

Anatomy of a Play: Brown’s Second INT

Posted by Dan Salomone on December 12, 2012 – 8:00 am

brownintDown and Distance: 1st and 20 at NYG 31
Time: 12:07, 4th QTR
Defense: Cover 2
Situation: Giants leading 42-27

The Play: Drew Brees pass deep middle intended for Jimmy Graham INTERCEPTED by Stevie Brown at NYG 8. S.Brown pushed ob at NO 22 for 70 yards (Jermon Bushrod).

What Brown saw: “I have Web [cornerback Corey Webster], who’s the Cover 2 corner. He doesn’t have anything in the flat, so he can stay onto the No. 1 receiver a little bit longer. [Linebacker Michael] Boley is my hook dropper underneath No. 2. So as the Cover 2 safety, I’m reading both these [receivers] and I’m looking and see Brees – it just happened so quick. It happened so quick to talk about it. So whenever I’m back here in Cover 2, you want to make sure you have a good amount of depth so you can be able to break either way because there are two receivers that are going to be your threat, threatening your zone.”

Intended for TE Jimmy Graham: “Since he threw it to Graham — with him being like 6-6 or so, a basketball player, he can jump pretty high – the ball is usually thrown up there for him to get him and only him to get it. So I wanted to be able to make sure I came around him to pick off the ball without colliding into him.”

On the 70-yard return: “They say go to the near sideline, but I had to cut it back because there was more green grass. I see [Justin] Tuck pick up the fullback, Prince [Amukamara] pick up the quarterback, and 74 [Bushrod] is the fastest offensive lineman in the game.”

Outcome: Four plays after Brown’s seventh interception of the season, Lawrence Tynes tacked on a 39-yard field goal, extending the lead to 45-27. The Giants eventually won 52-27.

FIRST QUARTER

15:00 — Game Day Captains: Victor Cruz and Antrel Rolle along with season captains Eli Manning, Justin Tuck and Zak DeOssie. Giants win the coin toss and elect to receive. Saints defend the west goal.

*David Wilson returns the opening kickoff 58 yards down to the Saints’ 44 (Jerrel Jernigan was also back to receive)

13:30 — Giants fail to capitalize and go three-and-out.

12:46 — Will Hill and Stevie Brown force Marques Colston to fumble. Giants recover on Saints’ 45.

9:38 — TOUCHDOWN SAINTS. Elbert Mack intercepts Manning and returns it 73 yards to the end zone. XP is good. NEW ORLEANS 7, NEW YORK 0 

9:25 — TOUCHDOWN GIANTS. Wilson returns the ensuing kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown and does a backflip for the exclamation point. XP is good. NEW YORK 7, NEW ORLEANS 7

*That was the Giants first kickoff return for a touchdown since Domenik Hixon did it Dec. 29, 2007.

6:57 — Antrel Rolle strips the ball from Jed Collins and Linval Joseph recovers. That’s two forced fumbles so far by Giants safeties.
