    Being reported right now on NFLN's new ticker.

    The Giants' Osi Umenyiora will undergo season-ending knee surgery.

    EDIT: Here's the story from ESPN.

    That puts a lot of pressure on Justin Tuck. The Giants will suck this year anyhow.

    I already had them 3rd in that division. I think their defense went on a magical run through the playoffs, but I didn't expect them to beat Dallas and Philly.

    Who knows though, they still might be good enough to get a wildcard in the NFC.

    I hope Eli treasures his only ring.

    Osi was the Giants only Pro Bowl player, much bigger loss for them than #56 is for us.

    Their D will severly weakened from last year and put more pressure on ELI to perform.

    Yes, he was fortunate enough to be riding the train while the defense was winning the Championship.
