Sunday was not the most memorable moment in Geno Smith's short career in New York and as starting quarterback for the New York Jets.

In a game marred with mistakes, turnovers and bad decisions, Smith's Jets dropped their third straight game in as many weeks as they lost to the Detroit Lions 24-17 at MetLife Stadium and Smith heard his share of boos and cat calls after the loss. Even during the game, you could hear the Jets fans screaming, "We Want Vick!" as they were fed up with Smith's mistakes and wanted veteran Michael Vick to take the field.

To make matters worse, Smith further fueled the fans displeasure for him as he shouted "f*** you" towards the fans as he was heading toward the tunnel and into the locker room. The second-year quarterback did apologize for his poor choice of words and will likely get a fine from the NFL for it, but either way, he still said it.

On Monday, another person in New York whose heard his fair share of boos and cat calls over his span of his career, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning, and he had a very interesting take on what Smith is encountering at MetLife Stadium.

Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh Refuses to Regarding Desires to Play for Giants, Jets

Early Sunday morning, it was reported that Detroit Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is likely to leave the Detroit Lions after the 2014 season and once he's a free agent, would prefer to play in New York for either the New York Giants or the New York Jets.

Suh's current team, the Detroit Lions, were in town and were victorious on Sunday over the New York Jets 24-17, which improved the Lions to 3-1 on the season. But even after the victory, Suh refused to speak to the media and David Birkett of the Detroit Free Press said that Suh not only didn't speak to the media after the win, but didn't even bother to get showered or changed in the locker room, as he got on the team bus still wearing some of the clothes he wore during the game.

"Suh, who's repeatedly said he wants to stay in Detroit, did not dress in the Lions locker room after Sunday's game according to the New York Post – he took his pads off and boarded the bus while still wearing the undershirt he played in – and ignored questions as he left MetLife Stadium."

As the New York Giants returned to work on Monday, they did so in a relatively healthy manor. Not only were players like cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (thigh) and offensive lineman Charles Brown (shoulder) on the field, but so to were linebacker Jon Beason (foot) and wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. (hamstring).

Although both were limited participants, head coach Tom Coughlin said following the conclusion of practice that Beason looked "OK" and Beckham Jr. did "a little more" than he had the week prior. He also implied that both will have the opportunity to earn their way onto the active list for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons if they can finish the practice week healthy.

"He has to practice, he has to practice consecutive days, he has to be able to show us that he’s not only strong enough but can endure day after day, so there’s some room here to make some progress and impress everybody," Coughlin said.

Beckham Jr. reiterated those statements after practice, saying he'll be "pretty much" a full go at practice on both Wednesday and Thursday and "definitely" plans to play against the Falcons on Sunday.

Tom Coughlin Sees New York Giants Offensive Line Coming Together at Right Time

September 29th, 2014 at 10:55 AM
By Doug Rush

The New York Giants offensive line seemed to be a major problem over the last two years; especially last year when they got Eli Manning sacked a career high 39 times in 2013.

Early on in 2014, the line looked like they were going to have the same issues again carrying over from the preseason into the regular season, but over the last three weeks, the unit has looked improved.

Will Beatty isn't getting dominated like he once was, J.D. Walton looks fully recovered from missing almost two seasons in the league and Weston Richburg isn't looking like a rookie in recent games; add that in with the solid play of Justin Pugh and John Jerry and you have a group who is protecting Manning, especially in two straight wins in which Manning has only been sacked two times after being sacked four times in the first two games.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is noticing how the offensive line is starting to come together at the right time with the team in the midst of a two-game winning streak that has them back at .500.

New York Giants Vs. Washington Redskins: Week 4 Game Analysis

September 29th, 2014 at 8:55 AM
By Dan Benton

When the New York Giants woke up on the 21st, they were 0-2 and staring down the potential reality of an 0-3 start. But that didn't happen and, instead, they defeated the Houston Texans in convincing fashion. Only four days later, they would line up across from the Washington Redskins on Thursday Night Football for what many considered their first "real test" since Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. And once again, the Giants came out victorious, winning their second game in four days to even their record at 2-2.

“We were excited about coming down here to play in the division. The guys worked hard, they focused. We were able to get past the previous game very quickly and get into this week," head coach Tom Coughlin said. "I thought the response was very good on the part of some of the guys who were nicked up, and we didn’t think for sure would be able to go with a short week. But they did, they responded well. We played well. We did a lot of very good things."

With all of that said, let's break down the game…
