“Patch” Mara!

Written by: Glenn Warciski

This mess is all on you John “Patch” Mara.   The NYGunderground.com will continue to use the nickname Patch when referring to John Mara.   Why Patch?  As a result of his band-aid decisions, this once proud franchise has become the worst team in the NFL.  His flawed thinking has produced a ripple effect.  Consequently, the Giants have become irrelevant.

Philadelphia Eagles 34 – Saquon Barkley 13

Written by Alexander George

Saquon Barkley (13 Rushing attempts for 130 yards, 1 TD, Long 50 yards & 9 Rec out of 12 targets for 99 yards , Long 55 yards). had the best game of his rookie season. Barkley was the only one who showed up in the Eagles beating of the New York Giants 34 – 13. With that performance, he is currently second only to Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt for consecutive 100 rushing and reception yards in a single season with 6 games. Hunt accomplished the feat last season with 7 consecutive 100 all-purpose yards. Even Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas 2 field goals of 33 and 21 yards were primarily set up by the Big Blue runner in a 46 yard run and a 55 yard reception in the first half of play.Ironically enough Rosas first miss of the season, a 52 yard field goal  with a little over 1 minute in the first half, did not feature a huge play by Barkley in the drive.

Prophet’s Pulpit- Thursday Night Edition. Giants vs Eagles.

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca

I apologize that I don’t have time on the short week to do a full breakdown of last week’s game. There is a lot to talk about there especially incompetent officials. It was a bit of a turning point. As much as OBJ’s bus driving in public is inexcusable, the team showed a real spark for the first time all year. Eli attempted to throw deep to Beckham and he did with 14 targets.

CAR 33 NYG 31-Giants Lose to Panthers on a Heartbreaking, Last Second Field Goal

 

by Alexander George & Glenn Warciski

With 6 seconds left, Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano scores on a 63 yard field goal as the Panthers defeat the New York Giants 33 – 31. Due to Gano’s heroic kick, New York Giants Underground staff agrees that he is the MVP of the game. Gano is 1 yard short of the NFL record, set by Matt Prater (Broncos/Lions), and is currently tied with Tom Dempsey (Saints), Jason Elam (Broncos/Falcons), Sebastian Janikowski (Raiders/Seahawks) and David Akers (Eagles/49ers/Lions) for the second longest field goal of all-time. History also repeats itself as the last time the Giants faced the Panthers in 2015, Gano hit a game winning 43 yard field goal as well defeating Big Blue 38 – 35. Continue reading

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca

Everyone in America thought the game with the Saints would be a shootout. It turned out to be anything but. The Saints ended up cracking 30 points but the Giants were in their familiar less than 20 point game. The defense played well and kept them in the game forcing the Saints to kick 4 field goals. However the supreme weapon Kamara was unstoppable rushing for 134 yards and 3 touchdowns. He had 47 receiving yards to add to the rushing. Continue reading

Shurmur: Give Up The Play Calling!!

Written by: Glenn Warciski

Letdown!  After making positive strides offensively versus the Texans, Pat Shurmur’s offense disintegrated against a woeful Saints defense.  This is the same Saints defense which  allowed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons to score 48 and 37 points respectively.  Unfortunately,  Shurmur’s Giants could only put up 10 points.  The last 8 points were scored in garbage time.  Speaking of garbage, Shurmur’s team is playing like trash.  His special teams and offensive line stinks.  It is time for him to devote more time in overseeing the offensive line and special teams.  Both areas, without question, need serious improvement.  And relinquish the play calling duties to offensive coordinator Mike Shula.

Big Blue Fails to Stop Saints’ Alvin Kamara in 33 – 18 Loss

by Alexander George

The New York Giants and New Orleans Saints have had a history of high scoring games, in the past decade, between quarterbacks Eli Manning and Drew Brees. In their highest scoring game on November 1, 2015, the Saints defeated the Giants 52 – 49. Eli Manning (30 for 41, 350 yards 6TDs) and Drew Brees (39 for 50, 505 yards, 7TDs & 2INTs) combined for over 850 yards and 13 touchdowns. By the end of last night’s game, both quarterbacks barely broke over a total of 400 yards and only 1 touchdown was thrown in which the Saints defeated the Giants 33 – 18. Continue reading

Prophet’s Pulpit-Week 4 NYG vs Saints Preview & Prediction

Written by: Tony “The Prophet” Yantosca”

saints vs giants

What a difference a week makes. The Giants saved their season with a gutty performance on the road. Who knew that exchanging Chad Wheeler at right tackle for Ereck, one of the greatest Jerry draft busts of all time picked at #9 overall, Flowers would make such a dramatic difference. The Giants were able to run the ball. They ran for 115 yards after averaging 74.5 yards in the first 2 games. They scored on their first 4 possessions of the first half. This allowed Shurmer to use Barkley the way everyone anticipated that he would be used when he was drafted #2 overall. He was not Captain Checkdown catching 15 passes like he did in week 1. Barkley didn’t score but he had over 100 yards receiving. Eli was the “Good Eli” completing 86% of his passes for 297 yards, 2 touchdowns and 0 picks. They won the time of possession battle at 35:30 minutes which is the most for the Gmen in a long time.

A Giant Win: Shurmur Makes Corrections

New York Giants

 

Written by: Glenn Warciski and Paul Burke

Credit Giants head coach Pat Shrumur for making necessary corrections in order to get his Giants on the winning track.  A week ago,  I was critical about the state of the team and the awful 0-2 start.  Yesterday versus the Texans,  he had his team prepared and ready to play.  Indeed, it showed with an impressive road win over the Texans 27-22.
