New York Giants Monday Morning Storylines: John Fox Reminisces, Mike Patterson Wants to Stay

Super Bowl week is upon us. Accordingly, little news will focus on any team that's not either named the Denver Broncos or Seattle Seahawks. And whatever news does trickle down about the New York Giants or any other team in the league will, most often, tie directly into one of the two teams battling for the Lombardi Trophy. So, sit back and enjoy what should otherwise be a relatively hectic and fast-paced week leading up to the Big Game.

John Fox Remembers Giants Years Fondly

"Great organization, tremendous families running the organization," Fox said of the Giants during a news conference shortly after the Broncos arrived in town Sunday afternoon. "Their head coach is probably one of the guys I've looked up to the most in this league. My sons went to school in Wayne, N.J., and we've got a lot of great memories here. It would be special to win the Super Bowl anywhere, it would be really special to win it here."

New York? Supe is Being Played in New Jersey

It is Super Bowl week, and I've heard that this year's game is being played in my home state of New Jersey. Well, actually, I have not heard that very often. Almost everybody across the country who talks about this Super Bowl between Peyton Manning's Denver Broncos and Richard Sherman's Seattle Seahawks refers to the game as being in New York.

That, of course, is just fine with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. Even though it is New Jersey that will foot the majority of the bill and reap the minority of revenue, the NFL prefers to conjure an image of Manhattan skyscrapers rather than the swamps that house MetLife Stadium across the Hudson River over in Jersey.

Peyton Manning: Eli Can't Help Much with Seahawks

"Yeah, he told me he couldn't help much with Seattle," Peyton Manning said in his news conference shortly after the Broncos arrived Sunday afternoon. "That wasn't one of the Giants' best games."

Joe Morris Talks Super Bowl XXI Trickery

Joe Morris grew weary of the trick play then New York Giants coach Bill Parcells had his offense run repeatedly in practice throughout the 1986 season.

"I never understood why we worked on the flea flicker every week and we never called it," the former New York Giants running back told

Mike Patterson Hopes to Remain with New York Giants

As Mike Patterson headed for the exit on Baggie Day last December, he stopped and reflected on his first season with the Giants.

“I waited a long time to get in this locker room,” he said. “Hopefully I’m back next season.”

    Seattle will win in a rout … and everyone will blame Peyton.

      Uhh I hope not. If Russel Wilson wins a Super Bowl it makes the Lombardi trophy look like a teen choice award.

    Also been meaning to ask this for about 2 years, how do I get an avatar for my profile?

    Beatty CAN play right tackle–no one said he CAN’T. What has been pointed out is that his strongsuits–agile feet and lateral movement– and his weaknesses–run blocking and lower body strength– are better used on the left side as opposed to the right side. This meme about both tackle spots being ostensibly the same is absurd, and flies in the fact of reality. Yes, Tyron Smith played as right tackle, and looked terrible, so they moved him to his natural position as a left tackle (while Doug Free has played decently at right, after bunking out at left after one good year). Yes, David Diehl played both positions throughout his tenure (albeit briefly at right, and only in an emergency). And yes, Will Beatty played at right tackle a bit as a rookie (again, out of need, not want).
