So, Are The Giants For Real?

So, Are The Giants For Real?

I know. The Giants win a couple of games and Neal’s nowhere to be found. Crickets from the most vocal and boisterous Giants fan on the TSG staff. Well, right after the Giants finished wrecking the Texans, I flew to Ibiza for a company retreat. Big things in the work for Dailymotion, folks. Get on the ground floor now. I somehow managed to catch a flight...

Cash…MONEY: My Week-5 Picks

Cash…MONEY: My Week-5 Picks

4-1 last week, 8-2 the last two weeks; you already knew we were going with the ‘Duck Tales’ motif again. Here are my college football picks for week-five. Let’s do it. Last week: 4-1 POTW: 2-2 Season: 12-8 Saturday, Noon, ESPN2 Wyoming at Michigan State (-28) Wyoming is a semi-interesting team for a few different reasons. The Cowboys are...

Monday Night Football Trivia

Monday Night Football Trivia

In honor of tonight’s big Monday Night Football matchup between the Chicago Bears and New York Jets, I thought I’d put together a mini, five-question trivia exam – with all questions based on MNF games. Answers found at the bottom of the page. Good luck, sports fans! 1) Who holds the record for the most made field goals in a single MNF...

And the Heisman goes to..

And the Heisman goes to..

That’s Florida State’s Jimbo Fisher alongside 2013-14 Heisman Trophy winner, Jameis Winston. Since then, Winston has gone a bit crazy (a crab leg heist, a less than impressive ACC Media Day, issues with cafeteria decorum, etc.), so don’t be surprised when you don’t see him on this list. But, the kid can really play, so I will reserve the...

My Week-4 Picks (Sponsored by Duck Tales)

My Week-4 Picks (Sponsored by Duck Tales)

Call it superstitious. Call it crazy. Call it whatever you like. I was 4-1 with a “Duck Tales” cover photo last week, so you can bet your sweet behind I’m sticking with the theme this week. Here are my college football picks for tomorrow’s games (fingers crossed): Last week: 4-1 Season: 8-7 Pick of the Week: 2-1 Saturday, 7:00,...

Giants Cardinals 2014 Week 2 Reactions: Bring On The Pennington Jersey

Giants Cardinals 2014 Week 2 Reactions: Bring On The Pennington Jersey

I took last week’s loss way worse than this week’s because last week it still hadn’t sunk in yet that this team, in its current iteration, is garbage. HOT garbage. And, to be honest, I should take this week’s loss way worse: HOME OPENER, 90th anniversary celebrations, backup quarterback (even though NYG smells against backups for some...

Swimming in Gold: My Week-3 Picks

Swimming in Gold: My Week-3 Picks

Swimming in gold and stacks of green bills, folks – that’s what I’m about this week. My picks have been kinda “meh” in the first two weeks, but I’m anything but a quitter. Here’s this week’s picks – short and sweet. Last week: 2-3 Season: 4-6 Pick of The Week: 1-1 Saturday, Noon, ESPN East...

College Football: 5 Players Worth Seeing

College Football: 5 Players Worth Seeing

That’s LSU freshman RB Leonard Fournette (cover photo), striking his best “Heisman Pose” (against Sam Houston State, no less). It was a ridiculous, but forgivable offense; mainly because he’s a young, exciting prospect in the talent rich SEC. Fournette’s youthful exuberance did, however, get me a-thinkin’ about the wealth of...

Giants Lions 2014 Week 1 Reactions: What’s The Gameplan, Man?

Giants Lions 2014 Week 1 Reactions: What’s The Gameplan, Man?

I put off writing this blog post an entire day so I could get my wits about me. If I’d written this immediately following the game, well, that wasn’t going to happen because I couldn’t feel my fingers, hands, arms, legs, or face. Or feelings. I just switched off as a human. My girlfriend was with me towards the end of last season, so she saw a...

Hypocrisy Machine Still Going Strong

Hypocrisy Machine Still Going Strong

As you may have heard, this morning TMZ released the additional elevator footage from the Ray Rice domestic assault incident from last February at Atlantic City’s Revel casino (which in an ironic twist of fate, closed last week). And as you probably have seen by now, it’s not pretty… Letting the formal legal process play out (even though it...

This Old School NFL Commercials Compilation Kicks My Nostalgia in the Dick Butkus

This Old School NFL Commercials Compilation Kicks My Nostalgia in the Dick Butkus

“To help kick off the 2014-15 NFL season we take a look back at some of the best retro commercials of your favorite NFL stars.” How come today’s NFL commercials featuring the league’s top talent can’t be as good as these? What is it about these ads that brings a Schmitt-eating grin above my chin? That Refrigerator Perry...

Five Observations: College Football, Week 1

Five Observations: College Football, Week 1

It’s been said that you can never have too much of a good thing and–when it comes to the opening weekend of the college football season–I would have to agree. It’s a beautiful annual rite of autumn, and I enjoyed every minute of it (estimate: 16-18 hours of college pigskin for this guy). And Week 2 could be even better. Who knows. The...

College Football is Back! Degenerates Beware!

College Football is Back! Degenerates Beware!

Last night, after finally (and exhaustingly) sorting-out my SEC Network issues, I was able to sit down just in time to catch the South Carolina Gamecocks taking the field. If you’re a college football fan, you know the drill–2001: A Space Odyssey begins to play, all of Williams-Brice Stadium comes alive to the point of goosebumps, then their beloved...

Washington Redskins Name Change: Top Options

Washington Redskins Name Change: Top Options

It feels like the Washington Redskins name change controversy is now a weekly news topic, refusing to go away, and causing my buddy Christian Matthews (new PR guy) to double down on the Advil. Now, 50 senators have come out in favor of changing the team name despite the Redskins’ best Twitter efforts to convince the Senate otherwise. I’ve gone back...

What Do You Think About the Redskins Decision??

What Do You Think About the Redskins Decision??

Social media erupted this morning after the US Patent and Trademark Office announced their decision to revoke the patent for the Washington Redskins’ logo. We’re going to open up the phone lines at 8:00 tonight to hear YOUR thoughts on the issue, and what it means for the future of the Skins. We’ll also discuss the passing of Tony Gwynn as...

Mark Herzlich – A True Father’s Day Story

Mark Herzlich – A True Father’s Day Story

Fathers Day has always bordered on the ‘real holiday/Hallmark holiday’ line. For some, it’s a day to give your husband a tie and a card made out of macaroni and glitter, while he crushes Buds in his lazy boy watching the US Open. But some families understand the true spirit of the day, and give thanks to the fathers that understand the meaning...

Norwalk’s Evan Adams Commits to Syracuse

Norwalk’s Evan Adams Commits to Syracuse

The Norwalk Hour is reporting that Norwalk High Junior lineman Evan Adams has verbally committed to Syracuse. Coach Sean Ireland first broke the news on his twitter account last night. The 6’6″ 300 pounder played guard and defensive end last fall, but will stick to the offensive side of the ball at ‘Cuse and will likely shift to Tackle. He...

Kliff Kingsbury Brought Bottle Service Girls To Practice In An Ice Cream Truck

Kliff Kingsbury Brought Bottle Service Girls To Practice In An Ice Cream Truck

From College Spun comes this story about Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury revealing he once brought bottle service girls to a Houston Cougars practice in an ice cream truck when he was an assistant there. The key takeaway from this story is Lubbock doesn’t have bottle service girls. So, if you’re a recruit and you love two scoops of...

Searching for the Real Johnny Manziel

Searching for the Real Johnny Manziel

In 2007, it was Notre Dame’s Brady Quinn. In 2012, it was Oklahoma State’s Brandon Weeden. Two quarterbacks, each taken by the Cleveland Browns with the twenty-second overall pick. Quinn has 12 career TD passes vs. 17 interceptions; is currently a free agent; and it certainly seems as though his career’s flame, once bright with potential, has...

Interview with Thurman Thomas!

Interview with Thurman Thomas!

Last night we were joined by Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas. Thomas defended the Bills’ draft day trade and gave a first hand account of what went down in the war room leading up to the selection of Sammy Watkins. He also discussed the passing of Ralph Wilson and the courage of friend (and possible future owner of the Bills) Jim Kelly. Click to...

2014 NFL Draft: Day One Winners

2014 NFL Draft: Day One Winners

After only one round, it’s hard to say any one team is a ‘loser’ in this year’s NFL Draft. Granted, there were some questionable picks in terms of value (Jacksonville, Minnesota) but, all-in-all, I’m in no position to call anyone any names after just one day. With that said, here’s a look at five teams I thought did the most...

Best Sports Video Game Ever – Tony D’s Pick

Best Sports Video Game Ever – Tony D’s Pick

Is this really even a debate? Tecmo Super Bowl (NOT Super Tecmo Bowl as most call it) is hands down THE best sports video game ever made. Released in 1991 by Tecmo this game was THE first sports video game to have licensing included which meant you actually played as real teams and as real players. Some games before this used real names or real teams but...

2014 NFL Draft: Five Potential ‘Sleepers’

2014 NFL Draft: Five Potential ‘Sleepers’

Who will the Houston Texans select with the first overall pick this Thursday in the 2014 NFL Draft? Will it be the supremely talented South Carolina Gamecock, Jadeveon Clowney? Will it be the gifted linebacker from the University of Buffalo, Khalil Mack? Maybe a quarterback like ‘Johnny Football’? Whoever gets selected with the first pick, or in the...

New York Giants 2014 Schedule: Neal’s Updated Predictions

New York Giants 2014 Schedule: Neal’s Updated Predictions

Coming off my predictions for the most anticipated NFL games of 2014, I thought I should definitely update my predictions for the Giants in 2014. When the league first announced Big Blue’s opponents for the upcoming season, I was in a bad, bad place. WEEK 1 SEP 8 7:10PM EDT @ LIONS ON ESPN Lions will be looking to avenge their loss last season on home...
