About New York Giants
New York Giants are the only existing team from a group of five that joined the NFL in 1925. The team is third among all NFL franchises with 8 NFL titles, including four Super Bowls, most recently in 2011. The Giants are members of NFC East division and the team’s most hated rivalry that dates back to 1933 is with the Eagles and it’s been called the best NFL’s rivalry in the 21st century. The team also shares some exciting moments against the Patriots when they beat them twice in 2008 and 2012. The win in 2008 was especially painful for the Patriots as they finished the regular season 16-0 and only that loss against the Giants stood in their way of achieving a “Perfect Season”.
The team’s colours are Dark Blue, Red and White. Giants don’t have either a mascot or a cheer leading squad.
The team’s under caring wings of Tom Coughlin, a three time Super Bowl champion all with the Giants, one as a coach assistant, twice as a head coach. He coached the Giants since 2004.
The franchises face is Eli Manning, a quarterback who comes from a football family having his father and his older brother playing the same position as him. Manning currently holds an iron man mention for consecutive starts by a quarterback.
He is supported by a duo of explosive wide receivers, Victor Cruz and Odell Beckham Jr. Cruz who’s played all his career with the Giants holds NFL record 99 yard touchdown reception (tied with others), he also wrote himself in Giants’ books by holding receiving yards record in a season by Giants’ player.
Beckham Jr, has been a national sensation last year making unbelievable one handed catches which helped him to be voted to be a cover player for a football video game.
Considering that this is going to be only his second season, there is plenty to look forward when watching this young explosive receiver in action.
There aren’t many big names on the defensive side of the team and it’s more of a group effort joined with high scoring offense that keeps the Giants going, and having Manning coached by Coughlin for many years is beneficial to the team.
Having an experienced and reliable placekicker in Josh Brown, whose record field goal is 58 yards, makes it that bit easier for the team in close games. The Giants have their ups and downs but one must never forget about them.
