  • LIKE MIKE: Justin Tuck gives Michael Strahan much of the credit for Tuck's ascension to what he is today -- one of the best defensive ends in football.
  • MEET THE NEW TIGHT END: Steve Smith is 5-foot-11, 195 pounds. Yet, he is doing a lot of the heavy lifting in catching the type of passes in the Giants' offense that used to go to that tight end who is now in New Orleans.
  • FALL FROM GLORY: Ex-Giant Mark Ingram was sentenced Tuesday to 7 years in prison after being convicted on bank fraud and money laundering charges. Ingram was a hero of the Giants' 1991 Super Bowl victory over Buffalo.
  • G-POPE IS A BENGAL: Cincinnati has signed former Giants cornerback Geoffrey Pope.
  • BE WARE: Here is an entertaining Q&A with Giants' backup running back Danny Ware.

POWER RANKINGS: I don't put much stock in power rankings and I hope you don't, either. But, they do create fun arguments. NFL.com has the Giants No. 2 this week behind Dallas. ESPN has the Giants No. 3, but couldn't resist a tiny jab. " The Giants summarily dismissed the Rams, but that's not saying much. The Giants have found success in the post-Umenyiora era."

NON-FOOTBALL NOTE: This one is for Yankees' fans. Derek Jeter became the all-time hit leader at Yankee Stadium last night, and over at Bugs & Cranks I have posted a little message for Jeter-bashers.
