What is Gettleman doing?

Written by: Glenn Warciski

We started off the week with a shocking OBJ trade. After this blockbuster trade was announced, the NYGunderground thought this was the beginning of a total rebuild. Meaning the Giants were going to purge the entire roster. Unfortunately, much to our chagrin, this has not been the case. On Thursday, the Giants inexplicably overpaid for a wide receiver? Haven’t these knuckleheads learned. Why did Dave Gettlemole (his new moniker here on the NYGunderground: he is a coward who avoids conflict. Burrows himself in the basement of 1925 Giants Drive). sign WR Golden Tate? Tate, an aging journeyman who will be 31 years old, will receive 23 million dollars guaranteed. What a joke. No it is not funny. Again, Gettlemole did not make himself available to answer this question and other troubling developments. Continue reading

OBJ Trade: Did the Giants Get Fleeced?

Written by: Paul Burke

After our post this morning more news, whispers around the league and reports have slowly emerged as it relates to the trade of OBJ.  We like to be fair and objective in giving their executives the benefit of the doubt when reviewing the information we receive.  I would like to retract some of the praise I wrote in the post from this morning based on some information that has been reported.

Good Riddance Vernon; Our take on Collins

Written by:  Glenn Warciski,  Andy Furman, Paul Burke

Wag the Dog!   After the Giants allowed former safety Landon Collins to become an unrestricted free agent,  Giants GM Dave Gettleman was facing a firestorm of criticism.  Outcry from many fans,  How can you let go of your best defensive player?  What is wrong with Gettleman?   Well, ahead of the new league year which begins on March 13, the Giants leaked the trade of  embattled defensive end Olivier Vernon to the Browns in exchange for guard Kevin Zeitler.   For now,  the Collins story has shifted to good news about getting rid of Vernon.  In addition,  in this trade the Giants and Browns swapped draft picks.  The Giants will send a fourth-round pick (No. 132) in exchange for a fifth-round pick (No. 155) from the Browns to complete the deal.

Giants Still A Mess!

New York Football Giants management continues to behave badly. It is March 1, 2019. Incredulously, we still do not know who will be under center when the new season begins in September. This is a slap in Eli Manning’s face. Mara, Tisch, Gettleman et al. What are you thinking? As I wrote in January, it is about money. Will Eli Manning be willing to take a pay cut to stay on?  This is the delay.  It is time to declare whether Eli will be the starting quarterback.  Stop dawdling already!  The Giants have to do the following:

Cowboys 36 NYG 35

The LOSING continues!   Up by seven points, late in the 4th quarter(1:12 left to be precise), it appeared the Giants would secure their sixth victory of this miserable 2018 season.  Not so fast.  The Giants sieve defense could not stop Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott.  With three starting offensive lineman not playing and no Zeke Elliott in the game,  the Cowboys had difficulty running the football -51 yards on the ground.  But it was Prescott who overcame adversity.  Under pressure on 4th and 15 on the Giants 32 yard line,  Prescott evaded the rush and threw an accurate touchdown pass to  WR Cole Beasley.  Giants 35 Cowboys 34.   Then a successful 2 point conversion to WR Michael Gallup to put the Cowboys ahead 36-35.   Wait.  There was still  69 seconds left and Dallas was flagged for taunting which was enforced on the ensuing kickoff.   I was waiting for Eli Manning to lead his Giants to a come from behind victory against arch rival Dallas.  The Giants had the ball with 1:09 seconds left on their own 48 yard line.  20 yards needed to get “Mr. Automatic” Aldrick Rosas in field goal range.  What happens?   Our once star quarterback could not get the job done.  3 crappy passes and one pass well defended fell incomplete.  Instead of a thrilling win to end this season,  the Giants are losers!

Prophet’s Pulpit-Cowboys vs NYG Preview & Prediction

Written by:  Tony “The Prophet”  Yantosca

Well here we come to the end of the 2018 Giants campaign. Expectations were high early in the year. The bane of existence for a decade of Giants’ fans, Jerry Reese was fired.  We had a new coach from a successful program. We got a familiar face for a GM in Gettleman. When the smoked cleared and by the time the Christmas presents were opened, it was another season of opportunity lost. It was another lost season for Eli who does not have many good ones left at all. The offensive line started out worse than last year and got better but still has a long way to go as a bottom ranked group. There are only 13 players left on the 2018 team from last year. That is an issue in itself because good teams have a level of cohesion from players working together over time.

Colts 28 NYG 27

Merry Christmas!  Our pathetic Giants were in the gift giving mood.  Another late game collapse.  Another December loss.  Since 2013, the Giants are 11-15 in the month of December.   The losses continue to pile up.  Over the last 5 years, the Giants have lost 10 games or more FOUR times.  Again bleak times.  How bleak?  In Giants’ infamous history,  from 1970 til 1980 ( labeled the Wilderness Years), the Giants lost 10 or more games SEVEN times. Undoubtedly, we are in the 21st Century Wilderness years.  Takeaway  Super Bowl 46, this has been a decade of despair.  Nonetheless, we are not going to go too deep in on this recap as we respect your mental health as well as, we hope, our own.
