Mt. Hood Crushing It in August

I built this site for the Giants fans who wanted more than the typical sports beat news.

Football is a way of life in our house.

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 for the Rush crew. Michael is a golf pro in North Carolina & was raised in the NYC 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.

Feature: You’re Killing Me Smalls – Injury Update

Born & raised a Giants fan in CT, I needed an outlet for all my fiery NYG passion. Graduate of the University of AZ and now currently studying to be a doctor,  but my true joy is rewatching film until my head hurts. Bringing my spicy perspective beyond twitter.

Blogger today, Giant’s doctor tomorrow?

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

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.
