Michael Stewart | Featured Columnist


Michael StewartMichael is somewhat of a mystery writer for the NY Giants Rush. He come and goes, yet he always produces great insight into the New York Giants and their locker room.  His research is second to none, is a draft expert and is a bad ass golfer.

He has been one of the most consistent writers on the staff. Michael makes his career as a golf pro in North Carolina yet was raised in the NYC area and still bleeds blue!

Raisedadam nardelli in central New Jersey, Adam’s attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick. Destined to be raised a Giants fan, he was born on the same day as a Giants vs. Jets game, and has been watching Big Blue ever since his dad stuck him in front of the television as an infant. 

Adam is a huge NFL fan and loves to watch as many games as he can.   His passion for football wouldn’t be possible without his deep loyalty to the Giants. Adam can now be found at Sirus XM Radio and is a Fantasy Football guru. 

At 6 years he would sit and read through the whole Giants yearbook, learning about the players.   He was often enamored by pictures of the Giant greats: Jesse Armstead, Michael Strahan, and Amani Toomer. 



Shane Sharkey | Contributor

Shane Sharkey is one of a kind.  Sharkey grew up Durango Colorado and has a love hate relationship with the Giants.  He was born on January 25 1987, the day Simms out dueled John Elway to win Super Bowl 21.

The man from Colorado is now a New York City fixture and loves the New York Giants like a long lost roommate.  Shane visits a new bar every weekend watching the Giants in every corner of Manhattan and supposedly he has Jason Sehorn on speed dial at all times.

Shane will drop in his opinion with an unedited version of Rant and Rave reborn!

Born and raised in Northern New Jersey, 20 minutes outside of East Rutherford.  I have been a Giants fan for as long as I can remember. My fondest memories have always circulated around football and the New York Giants.

Graduated from Bloomsburg University and made it out of Eagle country with a degree in Marketing.

I love talking about New York Giants football.






Michael J. Basile | Contributor


North Jersey guy, born and raised.   Michael is passionate about a few things:  Family, Friends, Food, Career and of course…Big Blue!  Michael graduated with a Sports Management Major/Business Minor from East Stroudsburg University in PA.

He currently  works for a recruiting firm since 2012. His favorite thing to do is watch 10 hours of football on a Sunday, and Thursday, Monday and Saturday.  Anyone close to Michael calls him the biggest NYG fans they know.
