90-Man Roster Preview: RB Orleans Darkwa Hopes For Bigger Role

He says he is finally healthy, but faces uphill climb for regular carries

Orleans Darkwa has performed reasonably well in limited opportunities with the New York Giants the past two seasons, and has averaged 4.0 yards per carry with four touchdowns on 71 carries during his time with the Giants.

Darkwa’s opportunities have been limited, in part, by injuries that have limited his availability the past two years. Darkwa, though, has also been held back by another inescapable NFL reality —...

Brandon Jacobs rips Jim Harbaugh for lack of football knowledge

Brandon Jacobs was known mostly for being a huge man who played running back for the Giants. (And for being a viable fantasy football starter by virtue of his goal-line usage, which stemmed from that size.)Jacobs hasn’t played since a short stint with the 49ers back in 2013, and it’s that stint that came up yesterday when he was on Tiki Barber’s radio show, Tiki and Tierney. Jacobs did not have kind words for then-San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh, taking him to task for what Jacobs...

What’s going on with the New York Giants offense?

From a talented trio of wide receivers to a significantly improved defense, the New York Giants had it all in 2016. When their new head coach, Ben McAdoo, was the offensive coordinator, he helped transform Eli Manning into one of the finer quarterbacks in the league. In 2015, Manning threw for a career-high 35 touchdown passes and had a quarterback rating of 93.6, which was his highest rating since 2009. But the 2009 season was a lot like the 2015 season. While the Giants had a top-10...

90-Man Roster Preview: Landon Collins Should Continue To Ascend

Safety could be primed to become a perennial Pro Bowl player
