New York Giants

The New York Giants—also known as the Jints, the G-Men, the Big Blue Wrecking Clue, or simply, the Big Blue—are based in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The team is the only one remaining from a group of teams established in 1925 and is the longest established team in the National Football League (NFL) in northeastern United States. The New York Giants currently ranks third in all NFL franchises and has eight NFL titles, winning four of them in the pre-Super Bowl era and four after the establishment of the Super Bowl. The latest of these wins was in Super Bowl XLVI in 2011. The New York Giants has 19 championship appearances—more than any other team—and their championship tally is surpassed only by the Chicago Bears and the Green Bay Packers. The Giants’ intense rivalry with the Philadelphia Eagles has been called the best rivalry in the NFL in the 21st century. In the 2013 season, the New York Giants had an overall score of 7-9, versus the 10-6 of the Philadelphia Eagles and the 8-8 of the Dallas Cowboys.

The team got a major upgrade during the off-season spending spree that they went on boosting their linebacker, cornerbacker, running back, and offensive line, which did need an upgrade, even by John Mara’s admission (Mara is a co-owner of the Giants). The New York Giants went young, getting Super Bowl champion Kellen Davis for the tight end position to join Daniel Fells, who is a veteran in the position, as well as Larry Donnell, a second-year pro, and Adrien Robinson. Most of the new signings average at 27 years, with the exception of Josh Brown, who is the kicker. This means that cheap New York Giants tickets would be a windfall to go watch the new players in action.

Although after Mara’s comments it was expected that the team would splurge on the offense side, they did not overdo it, making only two big offensive acquisitions in Geoff Schwartz as guard and Rashad Jennings as running back. National Football Conference and American Football Conference champion Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie got the biggest deal with a $35 million five-year contract in the hope that he will maintain his form in the coming season. The overhaul is meant to breathe new life into the Jints, and scoring some cheap New York Giants tickets will let you be the judge of how good the new signings are for the team.
