Craig J. Santucci – Publisher

Turnpike warrior. Sportswriter. Fiction Writer. Sports marketing innovator, digital video ninja, Data Science Specialist, and concussion survivor. 



I built this site for the Giants fans who wanted more than the typical sports beat news. A north jersey guy who moved to south jersey.  A highly accomplished and award-winning executive with 20 years of sports marketing and digital tech experience.   I don’t miss a home game.

I’ve written for some cool pubs: Bleacher Report,, SNY.TV, Big Blue,,, and

Michael Stewart – Featured Columnist

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


Michael is somewhat of a mystery writer for the NY Giants Rush. He comes 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 a badass golfer.

Spiro Kasabian  – Featured Columnist

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

Spiro 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

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.


Feature: Java with Jones

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.

Jeff Pilgrim – Contributor

Jeff was born and raised properly…as a New York Giants Fan.  Jeff is a central NJ native with a passion for NY Giants Football.  Jeff writes Pilgrim’s Point.

Jeff married a Spanish woman because she did the Victor Cruz salsa (Cruuuuuuuuuuuz) dance with him. He may or may not have a Giant’s tattoo from a bet he made with his best friend.  Die Hard!

Adam Nardelli – Contributor

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.  He drops a piece a few times a year when things get heated.


At 6 years old 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.

Raised 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. 

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 outdueled 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.

Has Jason Sehorn on speed dial.
