New York Giants: After The Season



The New York Giants football season has come to an end and now they have important decisions to make. The Giants had a great season, but in the NFL there is always room for improvement.

During this offseason the Giants need to strengthen certain areas of their team in order to win next season. The Giants are going to need playmakers on both sides of the ball and they will also need better protection for Eli Manning.

The offensive line is an important part to successful quarterbacks and running backs, and the Giants running game suffered last season. The Giants offense will see some changes during this offseason.

The Giants finished with a record of 11-5 under first year head coach Ben McAdoo. That is a huge accomplishment for a team that only had 6 wins the season before.

The Giants will need to have seasons like this in order to keep pace with the rest of the NFC East. Eli Manning will have the offense in his hands for a few more years and he will need all the help he can get especially from his receivers. This team was dangerous going into the playoffs, but were stopped short by a red hot Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

The Giants had two big players this season on both sides of the ball that were game changers and will be big factors if they want to make a deep run in the playoffs next year. The offensive player is Odell Beckham Jr., and the defensive player is Landon Collins.

Beckham had a great season this year although he had some issues with his temper he would do what is best for the team. He caught 10 touchdowns this season and also had a total of 1,367 yards. Those numbers are great for the young receiver and he will improve next season.

Collins had an unbelievable year on the defensive side of the ball. Every play he would be in route to the ball and try to make a play on the ball.

His numbers at the end of this season indicated what type for energy he was bringing to the Giants defense. He would finish the season with 100 solo tackles, 4 sacks, and 5 interceptions.

Collins was the driving force behind the Giants defense this season, and he will be a big reason that they win next season as well. He is a game changing player and the Giants need to keep him healthy and put more defensive talent around him.

In the 2017 NFL draft the Giants will have the 23th pick and they need a great player. The Giants need a good running back and they also need to fill some holes on the defensive side of the ball.

The Giants should look at this season as a good one because they made it to the playoffs. Winning the Super Bowl is the ultimate goal that they did not accomplish, but if they keep the consistency they had this season they will be able to be even better next season.

Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill Not Facing Child Abuse Charges



Kansas City Chiefs star wide receiver Tyreek Hill, or his fiancee will not face charges, as the Johnson County (Kansas) District Attorney’s office has declined charges against the pair, according to ESPN.

However, there is a wrinkle as District Attorney Stephen M. Howe said that although he believes that a crime occurred, the evidence in the case doesn’t clearly establish who committed the crime.

Back on March 14th, Overland Park, Kansas officers were called to Hill’s home to investigate an alleged battery in which a juvenile was a victim, police reports indicated.

While Hill was not listed in the report, his fiancee Crystal Espinal was listed under “others involved.”

The Kansas Department of Children and Families has been investigating the alleged battery.

“This office has reviewed all the evidence compiled by these agencies and has declined to file charges against Tyreek Hill and Crystal Espinal,” Howe said on Wednesday during a news conference.

“We are deeply troubled by this situation and are concerned about the health and welfare of the child in question. We believe a crime has occurred. However, the evidence in this case does not conclusively establish who committed this crime.”

This wasn’t the first incident involving the Hill residence as officers were called to the home on March 5th to investigate a report of child abuse or neglect.

In that situation, Hill was named on the police report, but the Overland Park police closed the case three days later when prosecution was declined.

Hill could still face discipline from the NFL, such as a fine and/or suspension.

Denver Broncos

Broncos’ Von Miller Avoids Charges for Bloody Shark Photo on Instagram



Denver Broncos superstar linebacker Von Miller will not face charges for catching and posing with a bloody hammerhead shark back in 2018, according to documents from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (h/t Deadspin).

Miller came under fire for a controversial photo posted on his Instagram story last year showing him with the bloody shark.

According to Florida Law, catching and releasing in this particular scenario would be fine, as long as the shark was “immediately returned to the water free, alive, and unharmed.”

Per TMZ Sports, Miller and the group pushed the shark back overboard after catching it, and the compilation of Miller’s Instagram story shows that process as well as the shark swimming away.

Despite that, and as Deadspin’s story points out, the picture doesn’t exactly 100% convince that the shark was “unharmed”.

According to USA Today, the boat Miller was on was called ‘Spellbound’ and the owner and operator of the boat were not as fortunate as Miller in regards to the investigation.

“Owner and operator were charged under the Magnuson-Stevens Act for fishing for sharks without the proper permit and for failure to release a shark in the manner that will ensure maximum probability of survival. A $2,000 NOVA was issued.”

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission classifies hammerhead sharks as a Group 3 shark, and harvesting them in state waters can be met with a second degree misdemeanor.

In the state of Florida, second-degree misdemeanors are punishable by up to a $500 fine and 60 days in jail, as determined by a judge.

Miller defended himself following the post, claiming that the shark didn’t die; “Everybody knows that I hunt and fish. It’s what I do” Miller said (h/t ESPN).

“But I also believe in conservation. I’m not just out there going crazy. We followed the rules. I did everything I was supposed to do.”
