Move over Victor Cruz, there’s a new king of New York.

And thank God he has come to play. After missing the first four games of the season, Odell Beckham Jr. has become an explosive catalyst for the Giants’ offense, hauling in a franchise record 71 catches for 972 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie. He’s even got his own meme, a viral response to his sensational catch against the Cowboys on Nov. 23. Continue reading DESMOND: GIANTS’ FUTURE NOT SO BLUE THANKS TO KING ODELL

New York’s boys in blue are experiencing an epic code red – three messy wins and fans calling for Tom Coughlin’s head. Tom and his boys aren’t in Kansas anymore.

Once upon a time, the New York Football Giants were champions. They won games with heart and soul. They conquered the big, bad Brady and the wicked Belichick – twice. Kings of New York, the Giants were.

Talk about falling from grace. Continue reading Desmond: Fans Doubting Tom Coughlin’s Future with Big Blue Need a Reality Check

Perry Fewell has some explaining to do.

Sitting at a pathetic 3-6 record going into Week 11, the Giants have lost four straight games, three of which by painfully large margins. They say that defense wins championships – can someone send Fewell a memo?

His defense can’t seem to win a game these days. After being dealt a striking blow by Marshawn Lynch and the Seattle offense last week, the Giants have officially been declared the NFL’s worst defense, surrendering 404.9 yards per game.

To make matters worse, the Giants are careening towards a franchise-worst defensive season after giving up at least 423 total yards in four straight games. Cue Tom Coughlin on damage control, and Perry Fewell sweating in the hot seat. Continue reading Desmond: Fewell the Flames of the Fire

DESMOND: G-MEN NEED A DIFFERENT KIND OF LUCK TO TOPPLE INDY IN MNF

The Giants come off their bye week facing a disappointing 3-4 record. To make matters worse, they will square off against the fiercest of foes in a highly touted Monday Night Football match-up, hoping to top Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts.

Currently sitting comfortably at 5-3 and first place of the AFC South, Luck and the Colts will visit MetLife stadium to take on Tom Coughlin’s ailing Giants squad. The Colts lead the league across the board, currently first in yards per game (452.2), second in points per game (31.2) and first in passing yards per game (336.5). While most would consider an Indianapolis victory to be all too certain, the Colts are reeling after a sobering 34-51 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 8. The Giants have a chance of making the game competitive, if they can execute in a few key areas. Continue reading DESMOND: G-MEN NEED A DIFFERENT KIND OF LUCK TO TOPPLE INDY IN MNF
