Was Placing a Franchise Tag on Jason Pierre-Paul the Right Move?

Jason Pierre-Paul was tendered a one-year contract worth $14.8 million. While the total 2015 salary cap is $143.411 million, the team is investing heavily in the sixth-year defensive end. A franchise tag is an enormous chunk of a team’s salary spent on a single player, especially at the defensive end position, but often a necessary step to prevent a star player from hitting the...

NFL Draft Grade A Day | Revisiting the Giants 2012 NFL Draft

I get a lot of flak, sometimes good, mostly bad, about the grading scale of the Draft Grades a Day. Some say it’s too harsh and sometimes I agree.  So I want to take a look back and compare a class’ first year production and look at how it’s fared in three years time.  We’ll compare the original grade and give it a current grade and see how far off this production only...

New York Giants get dissed in logo power rankings

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important. And while every NFL team’s signature is recognizable, not all of them are created equal. Some are classic and iconic. Others are modern and cool. But a few are downright putrid, bastions from...

New York Giants: Evaluating the Team’s Current & Future Secondary Situation

The New York Giants pass defense was extremely inconsistent. A pass rush that showed up one week and was non-existent the next and a secondary that was ruined by injuries led to the team’s downfall, and the future of this group remains largely in the hands of Jerry Reese.

Giants are gambling big on Jason Pierre-Paul

The New York Giants don’t like paying big bucks to anyone, regardless of whether they’re in-house or street free agents. But the G-Men also seem to realize that the window for another Super Bowl is still slightly open with Eli Manning, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr., which might explain why they decided on Monday to keep their best defensive player despite the price tag associated...
