Cal Ripken Eli's Benching 'Saddened Me' ... But Streaks Ain't Everything

12/8/2017 12:45 AM PST

MLB Iron Man Cal Ripken says the NY Giants ending Eli Manning's consecutive starts streak "saddened" him -- but it ain't the apocalypse fans are making it out to be. 

We got Cal in D.C. ... and the Orioles legend told us that having to sit after 2,632 STRAIGHT GAMES really didn't even register -- 'cause all he cared about was playing baseball.

"I don’t look at it that way -- that you're extending a streak or ending a streak," Ripken told TMZ Sports. "It never was something that I thought of as beginning or ending."

Eli's situation is a little different 'cause he didn't get to make the call himself like Cal ... but even so, Ripken thinks he'll be alright now that he's back under center.

Warren G Wise Up NY Giants ... Bring Back Eli Manning!!

12/5/2017 7:39 AM PST

Warren G is telling the NY Giants exactly what they need to do about the Eli Manning situation -- a situation that they totally screwed up -- telling TMZ Sports the Manning era should continue.

Here's a refresher ... the Giants benched their 2-time Super Bowl MVP for Geno Smith -- ending his consecutive games streak, losing the game, then firing their coach and GM. Nice.

It looks like Eli's job again, for now ... question is, for how long? Will the organization stick with him?

We got Warren G leaving Poppy on a clear black night, with a clear white moon and asked the rabid football fan what he thought of the situation ... and he's got Eli's back like Nate Dogg had his (RIP).

Tiki Barber Benching Eli Got McAdoo Fired ... Put Manning Back In

12/4/2017 1:23 PM PST

N.Y. Giants legend Tiki Barber says Ben McAdoo sealed his fate when he benched Eli Manning ... and now tells us the team should put the 2x Super Bowl winning QB back in the starting lineup.

Barber, a 3x Pro Bowler who played from '97-'06 with the Giants, told us NYG brass totally botched the Manning benching -- inciting fans -- and that forced Giants ownership's hand.

The Giants cleaned house Monday morning ... axing the head coach and GM Jerry Reese after a 2-10 start.

Barber -- host of Tiki and Tierney on CBS Sports Radio -- says the Giants next move needs to be ... put Eli Manning back under center, now.

Who says Tiki isn't an Eli Manning fan?

Ben McAdoo Fired By N.Y. Giants

12/4/2017 8:43 AM PST
Breaking News

Ben McAdoo is out as NY Giants head coach ... less than 2 seasons after taking over the job, according to reports.

The last place, 2-10 Giants lost again on Sunday ... falling 24-17 to the Raiders in Oakland. However, it was the benching of star QB Eli Manning that had the sports world up in arms ... and fans calling for BM's head.

McAdoo wasn't always hated in NYC ... he got off to a great start with the Giants last year, going 11-5 and making the playoffs.

12 games after playing a playoff game in Green Bay ... McAdoo is unemployed.

The NYG have also reportedly fired GM Jerry Reese -- who was the general manager for the Giants last 2 Super Bowl wins.

The Giants have not yet released a statement.

Story developing ...

Archie Manning Defends Giants Coach ... Despite Eli Benching

12/1/2017 12:20 AM PST

Here's a spirited defense for the job of Giants head coach Ben McAdoo from the LAST GUY you'd expect ... Eli Manning's dad, former NFL great Archie Manning.

Giants fans were livid at McAdoo for benching Eli (some say it's the end of Manning's career), saying the coach should be fired not just for the crappy year the G-Men are having, but for disrespecting a legend.

Archie is NOT one of those guys, because when we got him out at LAX and asked his opinion of the embattled coach ... the elder Manning said the terrible year was out of his control.

"Ben's a good coach," Archie says, "It wasn't his coaching that got all these people hurt." 

We also asked Archie how Peyton took the news of the (probable) end of the Eli era ... and Archie's response told us all we need to know.

"You don't wanna hear what Peyton said about this."

We're guessing it wasn't Omaha.

Donald Faison Destroys Giants for Benching Eli 'Most Disrespectful Thing EVER'

11/30/2017 2:14 PM PST

Donald Faison went NUCLEAR on the streets of NYC over the Giants benching Eli Manning ... saying it's "the most disrespectful thing" he's seen in his whole damn life.

TMZ Sports spoke with Turk about the news ... and just mentioning Eli got him to shout at the top of his lungs: "That's some BS, yo! Everybody's saying it!! BS!!! IT REALLY IS BS!!!!"

Donald -- who loves the G-Men -- says he's got a good reason to be pissed considering all Eli's done for the franchise.

"The season's a wash anyway, so just let him finish the season at least."

That obviously ain't happening ... but maybe the "Scrubs" star will feel better knowing job offers are already rollin' in for Eli.

Ex-Giants DT Matt Mitrione Blasts Ben McAdoo ... 'It's McADon't!'

11/15/2017 7:01 AM PST

Ex-NY Giants defensive tackle Matt Mitrione says Ben McAdoo is a crap coach ... that's why he calls him, "Ben McAdoo-doo."

It's pretty funny and brutally honest coming from a former Giants player -- with Mitrione explaining why Ben's gotta get the ax in NYC after a disaster 2017 campaign. 

He holds Eli Manning's feet to the fire as well. 

Mitrione isn't done taking shots yet -- he's an MMA fighter now who's competing at the 2018 Bellator heavyweight grand prix. 

So, if McAdoo wants to get even ... sign up!  

NFL's Jonathan Casillas Insane Video Surfaces from '12 Casino Brawl

11/13/2017 12:50 AM PST

NY Giants linebacker Jonathan Casillas should've been a running back -- because it took 5 SECURITY OFFICERS to bring him down during a violent casino clash back in 2012. 

We've been making calls for days trying to gather all the info about this crazy video -- and though the details are scarce, here's what we know ... 

-- It happened at 6 AM on May 12, 2012 at the Harrah's Casino in Atlantic City

-- Before the video begins, Casillas was pissed ... and walked outside to cool off. You see him throw a potted plant across the valet area. 

-- Casillas went back inside and was confronted by several security officers. Things get testy, Casillas tucks his chain, a security officer shoves Casillas and Casillas shoves back

-- Things went nuclear from there. 5 guys tried to take Casillas down. They struggled, but eventually got him to the ground. He was handcuffed and detained. 

-- Two Atlantic City PD officers were involved. 

We've reached out to the Atlantic City PD to find out if criminal charges were filed. One source connected to the incident says a civil suit was filed ... but unclear who filed it or if it's still active. 

Multiple attempts to reach Casillas and his reps were unsuccessful. 

Chad Johnson NFL Comeback Talk Was a Joke ... 'I'd Embarrass Myself'

11/7/2017 12:35 AM PST

Chad Johnson is sticking a fork in his NFL comeback ... telling TMZ Sports IT AIN'T HAPPENIN' ... 'cause he says his body's "too f**ked up" to play anymore.

The 39-year-old tweeted the N.Y. Giants for a tryout earlier this season after Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall went down with season-ending injuries.

And after the way he balled out with legit NFL superstars during off-season training sessions, it seemed Ocho was serious about one last hurrah with the pros. 

So, when we saw Chad on his way out of the Apple Store in L.A., we asked him straight-up how the comeback was coming along. 

Spoiler: It's not. 

But Chad explains why he needed to finance his new, expensive iPhone X and it's pretty hilarious. 

Odell Beckham Jr. Somber in Crutches and Walking Boot

10/17/2017 4:20 PM PDT

Odell Beckham Jr. hopped out of bed a week after undergoing ankle surgery and the look on his face says it all -- it ain't no fun.

The New York Giants WR was seen for the first time since suffering a horrific left ankle injury last weekend against the San Diego Chargers. He was leaving his crib in crutches and a large walking boot and on his way to physical therapy.

OBJ underwent season-ending surgery and posted a pic on Instagram from his hospital bed thanking everyone for their prayers ... but it's pretty clear he'd rather be prepping for the Seahawks on Sunday.


Thank u all for your prayers. You better believe I'll be back better than ever. God Speed

Al Michaels My Bad ... Harvey Weinstein Joke Wasn't Cool

10/16/2017 6:12 AM PDT
Breaking News

Al Michaels thought it'd be funny to compare the NY Giants sucking to Harvey Weinstein's sexual harassment/assault allegations on NBC's "Sunday Night Football."

It wasn't ... but at least he apologized for it (and in record time!!).

"I mean, let's face it -- the Giants are coming off a worse week than Harvey Weinstein, and they're up 14 points,” Michaels said in the 3rd quarter of Giants vs. Broncos.

FYI -- the Giants lost Odell Beckham Jr. for the year to a nasty injury, a player was suspended, and just about everything else went wrong.

The legendary sports announcer ended up apologizing early in the 4th, telling viewers it was "not meant in that manner."

The Giants won, 23-10. As for Weinstein ... his situation is very different.

Anthony Scaramucci Stick a Fork in the NY Giants ... They Suck!

10/10/2017 9:20 AM PDT

Anthony Scaramucci says the NY Giants are an absolute dumpster fire -- but they're still probably gonna beat the crappy Browns. 

Mooch was leaving Craig's in West Hollywood -- and since he's such a proud New Yorker and NFL fan, we asked how he felt about losing Odell Beckham Jr. for the season. 

"I'm more disappointed about the 0-5 record -- it's been a disaster. They're done now," Scaramucci told TMZ Sports.

He even busted out some stats to illustrate just how terrible the G-men are this season. 

Chad Johnson: Back Off Odell Beckham ... and Marvin Lewis!

10/1/2017 12:05 AM PDT

Chad Johnson says the NY Giants should be very careful on how they handle Odell Beckham Jr. -- because if they get on him too hard for the dog pee celebration, it's gonna mess up his head. 

Look, Chad says Odell is special ... and if going crazy on the field helps him dominate, so be it. The worst thing you can do is neuter him ... get it? 

We also asked if it's time to fire Marvin Lewis in Cincinnati -- after the team's 0-3 start. 

Chad not only goes to bat for his old coach, but explains why he's the best thing that's happened to the Bengals franchise in a long time.
