New York Giants’ Prince Amukamara, Jayron Hosley & Chris Canty Doubtful to Play Sunday

The New York Giants could be without three key defensive players on Sunday when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles, including cornerbacks Prince Amukamara (hamstring) and Jayron Hosley (quad), who are both listed as doubtful.

In addition to Prince and Hosley, defensive tackle Chris Canty (knee) is also listed as doubtful for Sunday.

Meanwhile, defensive end Justin Tuck (shoulder), safety Kenny Phillips (knee) and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks (knee) are listed as questionable.

Finally, center David Baas (hip/shoulder), running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee/foot), guard Chris Snee (hip) and safety Tyler Sash (hamstring) are all listed as probable.

With both Prince and Hosley likely out, the Giants will rely on either Justin Tryon or recently signed Terrence Frederick to start across from Corey Webster, with Antrel Rolle filling in as nickel corner.

    Assuming the Giants lose, they’ll have gone exactly 6-2 followed by 2-6 3 times. 2006, 2009, 2012.

      Are these just the years it happened under Coughlin, or is this throughout the team’s history?

      •  Levito says:

        just under coughlin. don’t remember any other occurrence, but I couldn’t really name records for most seasons beyond 2000 other than a few here and there.

    Sometime in mid-March … when the free agency period begins … if I were Reese I’d have a full medical briefing on every player. Where are they health-wise. What are the long term prognoses. As heartless as it sounds some players are never going to be right. And we may as well cut our losses rather than keep doing this.

    I thought I was done with Giants 101 because I was sick-to-death of this team and no longer interested in this season thanks to the much greater tragedies that have befallen our region, but I land back here this morning (having planned to go to the Eagles game but having given my tickets to my daughters and one of their friends instead after having been thoroughly disgusted by the game against the Ravens, which made me even LESS interested in the 2012 Giants) and see the Perry Fewell comment.

    The guy MUST be fired. Period. I have many times been disappointed by the “lack of execution” by people working for me. But the first rule of leadership is that YOU take the heat when it comes. You can rip someone’s guts out in a private meeting, but you NEVER throw your people under the bus in front of outsiders, EVER. You do it once and you destroy their willingness to go the extra mile. You destroy their trust. You destroy their confidence. You permanently breach the relationship.

    Fewell may be half-right. The players were quite frequently horrible this season. But you cannot say what he said. He must have “lost” them already and figured he needed to position himself for post-season interviews. But he should not be back with the Giants. If he is, then all of Coughlin’s “loyalty” looks like a sham, because if he doesn’t require loyalty to the players on the part of coaches then what’s the point?

    Disgusting display of absolute lack of leadership. Fewell must go.

      Completely agree. I was floored when I read his comments. And some were even worse than the ones we posted here. In his interview he also alluded to the team needing to want to make plays, as if they purposely tank. It’s disgusting that he would say such things, honestly.

    •  Levito says:

      Glad to see you back ff55. I agree completely and made similar remarks in the previous thread.

    Wouldn’t have expected those comments from Perry. Seems like a generally upbeat and good guy. Must already be halfway out the door. That’s not to say there isn’t truth in what he says, but you just don’t say it.

    Anyway, I can’t seem to help myself but hold on to hope. Out of the four games the Giants need on Sunday, our own vs. the Eagles seems the most difficult. It actually wouldn’t surprise me in the least to see everything else break our way.

    It doesn’t appear we’re going to be able to field a team though, so it will be a tough one. Maybe the Eagles will quit even harder than the Giants.

    So here’s how it happens. David Wilson and Ruben Randle will combine for 3 TDs. Bennett adds another. Terrence Frederick gets 2 sacks and a forced fumble from Vick on corner blitzes. Webster and Brown each notch an INT. Chase Blackburn makes 3 tackles for a loss on third downs. The offense commits no turnovers.

    In the waning moments, with the game still in doubt, Eli scrambles for 15 yards on a 3rd & 12 to seal the game. Immediately following the play, Donovan McNabb jumps from the stands wearing an Ochocinco-like Hall of Fame jacket, runs to the Eagles sideline and makes a fake phone call then dry-humps Andy Reid until security drags him off the field. Eagles are flagged 15 yards for excessive poor personnel decisions and then the Giants kneel on it to end the game.

    Or something like that…

    Hard not to be negative about this team right now. no one goes off the rails better than the Giants. While people are getting on Fewel right now for blaming his players, Coughlin said as much in 2009 — remember: when they decide to play better they will.
    To me, Fewel is yet another example of Coughlin’s incompetence. He should be in control of this and every other situation
    That said, the role of the players can’t be diminished. They actually play and they have stunk. Some because of injury, some just lack of talent, and some down seasons. Most disappointingly have been Eli and JPP.
    Reese also deserves his share of criticism. His last 2 drafts have contributed precious little and he has failed in 6 drafts to improve the O-Line one single bit. In fact, he has presided over it’s demise.
    Bottom line: this year’s team is done. Like most, I expect we will lose Sunday. I also expect at least one of the other 3 will win so the game is really irrelevant; much like 2010′s finale.
    So it will be a long long off season and following free agency and the draft we will convince ourselves that all holes have been filled, no serious injuries will occur, and all our players will play at their highest level possible.
    Unfortunately, the reality is that Coughlin will still be at the helm, along with Gilbride, and they will together squander more talent than Reese can amass.
    We will likely start 2013 somewhere close to 6-2, and finsih in a skid that either will leave us in the cold or allow us to just barely stumble into the tournament. But fear not feint of heart, next year the tournament may be expanded to 16 team’s and 7-9 may be enough to get to the dance. How Coughlin and Gilbride will manage to blow that will be the big story of the new year.
