July 8th, 2014 at 3:00 PM
As we noted last week here on Giants 101, 2014 has officially been re-named "The Year of Eli-Hating." The reason for that is glaringly obvious, as New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning has taken a relentless verbal beating since the onset of the offseason with no signs of it slowing...

Rick Gosselin: New York Giants Don’t Stay Down for Long, Will Win NFC East
June 21st, 2014 at 1:00 PM
It's a rarity that the New York Giants receive praise from any "expert" or pundit, and have certainly not seen much of it this offseason. That's why Rick Gosselin's predictions for the 2014 season are both surprising and far outside the norm -- especially when you consider the fact that...

New York Giants Ranked 19th in ESPN’s Post-NFL Draft Power Rankings
