The NYGMen Podcast: Week 6 Review/Week 7 Preview - Sleepless in Seattle

(0) Comments | Posted November 7, 2010 | 7:56 AM

In this Week 7 and 8 Review and Week 9 Preview, we discuss the incredibly satisfying win against the down-and-out Dallas Cowboys and highlight who we think may be the most promising 2010 teams in the NFC. We also remark on what a dick Randy Moss is, the G-Men being...

In this Week 6 Review and Week 7 Preview, it's a tale of two teams as we have resident Vikings fan and expert J-La and resident Cowboys fan and expert Reid to discuss their respective teams, which inevitably includes ridiculing Wade Phillips and Brett Favre. Also, a special guest appearance...

It's the offseason and "The NYGMen Podcast" is finally back!!! To reassure those who are not necessarily Giants' fans, we think that we can hold your attention too. Of course, there is some G-Men talk somewhere in the middle of this first episode of "The NYGMen Podcast: The Offseason", but...

The NYGMen Podcast Super Bowl XLIV Preview

(0) Comments | Posted February 6, 2010 | 1:14 PM

In this SUPER BOWL XLIV PREVIEW, we briefly discuss our plans for the game and, ultimately, call who we like and why. Ironically, we spend more time discussing the G-Men, such as Tiki Barber's appearance on Mike Francesa's "Mike'd Up", Michael Strahan being the sole Giant named to the NFL...

The NYGMen Podcast: NFC/AFC Championship Weekend REVIEW

(0) Comments | Posted February 3, 2010 | 12:16 PM

In this NFC/AFC Championship Weekend Review, unfortunately released a week late, we discuss some of the then noteworthy sports headlines such as Paul Shirley's insensitive remarks relating to Haiti, Tim Tebow's controversial Super Bowl ad to be aired by CBS, and Greg Oden's embarrassing (or impressive?) photos on the internet....

The NYGMen Podcast: The Jets - Unfortunately the Better 2009 New York Football Team

(0) Comments | Posted January 8, 2010 | 9:28 AM

In the first episode of The NYGMen Podcast post-2009 NFL regular season, we decide to take a break from talk about the Giants and, instead, have one of our old (and one of Dan's best) friends on the program straight from his apartment in Paris: Jets' enthusiast and degenerate gambler...

The NYGMen Podcast Week 17 Preview: The Giants Visit the Vikings

(0) Comments | Posted January 3, 2010 | 10:50 AM

In this Week 17 preview, the New York Giants travel to Minnesota to face off with the Vikings in a pretty pointless match-up (well, at least for the G-Men). We are honored to welcome childhood friend and fervent Vikings' fanatic J-LA, who happens to be chillin' in Argentina. The three...

Giants - Vikings Preview: Playing for "Giant Pride" or Draft Position?

(2) Comments | Posted January 2, 2010 | 9:16 AM

So here we are. On Sunday there will be no scoreboard watching (at least for us), no redeeming playoff run, no happy ending, and hopefully in a matter of days, no Bill Sheridan. We're left with a "meaningless game" with nothing to play for but the oft-invoked "Giant Pride." A...

The Taste of Defeat: Panthers 41 - Giants 9

(12) Comments | Posted December 29, 2009 | 4:39 PM

I. "The taste of defeat has a richness of experience all its own."
-Bill Bradley

It's really not so inappropriate that the Giants closed out the Meadowlands like they did. For all the attention being paid this year to the stadium's great moments, I would argue that the awful...

Giants-Panthers Preview: One Must-Win Down, Two to Go

(4) Comments | Posted December 25, 2009 | 7:19 PM

Like the Redskins, the Panthers are another out-of-contention opponent whose recent performance compares favorably to that of the Giants. Yes the Panthers are 6-8, but as they showed during last Sunday night's nationally televised beat-down of the Vikings, they're not a bad team at all, particularly when Jake Delhomme isn't...

We Deserved This: Giants 45 - Redskins 12

(Note: In light of the upcoming holidays and some deadlines for my day job, along with the fact that there's not too much to say in the "What's to like/What's not to like" section other than "Everything/Michael Boley," this will be an abbreviated post. Hope you enjoy anyway, and a...

In PART 2 of this episode, we give you what you'be probably been waiting for: a super in-depth post-game analysis of the Giants failure to beat the Eagles at home, in spite of having put 38 points on the board. Also, we touch on some other topics such as Mike...

Giants - Redskins Preview: Still Standing, Still Trucking

(3) Comments | Posted December 18, 2009 | 3:11 PM

Here's the fundamental question about the Giants right now: How much do you weigh 2008 and the first five games of 2009, and how much do you weigh the last eight games? Do the 12-4 season and the 5-0 start still mean anything? Or is our 2-6 record over the...

In Part 1 of this episode, Greg and Dan welcome The Flume to the program to help Dan recount their experience bearing witness (live) to the G-Men failing to take a winnable game from the Eagles. In so doing, the three childhood friends continually digress, hitting topics relating to WFAN,...

Ungiantlike: Eagles 45 - Giants 38

(2) Comments | Posted December 15, 2009 | 10:52 AM

The Dallas game was encouraging for our defense because it represented a potential step in the right direction, not because it was a good defensive performance per se. Sure there were those 392 passing yards, but an optimistic take focused more on the re-emergence of the pass rush...
