New York Giants Fans Have BRUTAL Reaction to 100th Season Commemorative Uniforms

The New York Giants have a special football season coming up. Why is it so special before playing a snap of regular season football? Because the 2024 NFL season will be the 100th season in the franchise’s long history.


There have already been multiple announcements surrounding the Giants to commemorate their 100th season. This includes giveaways celebrating past championships along with a special appearance on HBO’s Hard Knocks series for the first time in franchise history. Now, the team has announced that the Giants will have commemorative uniforms to go along with it.


New York Giants Reveal “Century Red” Uniforms

Earlier this morning, the New York Giants revealed their “century red” uniforms. These uniforms are a commemoration of the franchise’s origins which date back to 1925. It was also announced that these uniforms would be worn up to two times during the 2024 NFL season.


So, what do these uniforms look like? Truthfully, it is a mix of old and new.


The primary color is red to match the “century red” name. Even the helmet has a good touch of red with this uniform. Along with this, there is one big blue stripe in their high socks along with the middle of the jersey. The color white surrounds this stripe. Plus, the Giants will wear brown pants with these jerseys.


When Will the Giants Wear These Jerseys?

Now that we know the full 2024 New York Giants schedule, we can start to get of an idea of when the Giants may wear these jerseys. As mentioned above, the Giants will have special giveaways during three home games this upcoming season to celebrate their 100th anniversary.


While there are no confirmed dates for these jerseys, Week 1 may be a safe bet. The Giants have a home game against the Minnesota Vikings to open the season and it would officially kickoff the 100th season.


Then, we may want to consider Week 4 for a second appearance. That is because it is a Thursday Night Football home game against the Dallas Cowboys. It tends to be a time when teams like to wear alternative uniforms and it would be against a division rival.

So, what did Giants fans think of these uniforms? Here are some of the most notable comment

A seventh team will sign off on a Damiere Byrd contract. The veteran wide receiver, who spent 2023 with three teams, will join the Commanders, per Bleacher Report’s Jordan Schultz. Byrd trekked to Washington on Wednesday for a workout, KPRC2’s Aaron Wilson adds, noting the well-traveled vet joined Martavis Bryant on this audition. Bryant remains unsigned, while it will be Byrd receiving an opportunity in Washington. While a number of Dan Quinn-driven reunions have commenced in Washington this offseason, Byrd will return to a Kliff Kingsbury-run offense. Byrd, 31, was in Arizona for Kingsbury’s Cardinals HC debut back in 2019. While Byrd’s 2023 journey makes it far from certain he will be on the Commanders’ 53-man roster this season, he will bring some experience in the system Kingsbury is implementing. Byrd’s original team, the Panthers, reacquired him during the ’23 offseason but released him from IR after an August injury settlement. The Falcons, who employed Byrd in 2022, brought him back after his summer hamstring injury healed. By mid-January, Byrd was in Houston as an emergency option for a Texans team down multiple wide receivers. Altogether, however, Byrd played in just one game last season. He will attempt to rebound from a lost year. A diminutive target at 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Byrd has been with the Panthers, Cardinals, Patriots, Bears, Falcons, Texans and Commanders. Moved from a special teams presence into a more regular receiving role under Kingsbury in 2019, the former Panthers UDFA’s best season came during Cam Newton‘s Patriots starter year. Byrd caught 47 passes for 606 yards in 2020; he has operated as more of a role player since. Byrd did average 20.6 yards per catch with the Falcons in 2022, scoring two touchdowns in a 268-yard season. Washington has added two smaller wideouts in free agency, with Byrd joining ex-Falcons teammate Olamide Zaccheaus on Quinn’s team. They join the re-signed Jamison Crowder, who is 5-foot-9, as potential auxiliary options under Kingsbury. The Commanders closed this year’s third round by drafting Rice’s Luke McCaffrey. Holdovers Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson lead this Commanders position group.

Giants sign familiar veteran catcher to big league contract

The Giants announced they’ve signed catcher Curt Casali to a big league contract. San Francisco optioned Jakson Reetz to Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move. To create a 40-man roster spot, they moved Tom Murphy from the 10-day to the 60-day injured list. Casali, a Beverly Hills Sports Council client, is guaranteed a $1M base salary, reports Jon Heyman of the New York Post. It’s the second stint in San Francisco for the 35-year-old backstop. Casali signed a major league free agent deal back in 2021 after being non-tendered by the Reds. He spent a year and a half in the organization, combining for a .218/.317/.357 slash line over 357 plate appearances. San Francisco packaged him alongside Matthew Boyd to the Mariners at the 2022 deadline for a pair of minor leaguers. Casali hasn’t produced much at the MLB level since that trade. He hit .125/.300/.225 in 16 games with Seattle. Cincinnati brought him back on a $3.25M free-agent deal that winter, but his return stint with the Reds didn’t go as hoped. Casali lost a good portion of the season to a foot injury. He played sparingly as the third catcher even when healthy, hitting .175/.290/.200 over 96 plate appearances. The Reds made the easy call to decline their end of a $4M mutual option last winter. Casali spent Spring Training with the Marlins after inking an offseason minor league contract. He didn’t hit at all during camp and was released before Opening Day. Casali has spent the past six weeks in Triple-A with the Cubs, where he was out to a fantastic start to the season. In 23 games, he mashed at a .362/.489/.551 clip for Chicago’s top affiliate. He connected on a pair of homers and drew 15 walks against 16 strikeouts. While he’s certainly not going to continue hitting at that level in the majors, it was a strong enough showing to get back to Oracle Park. Casali’s familiarity with the San Francisco front office and much of the clubhouse no doubt helped matters. That said, the Giants surely didn’t envision looking for MLB catching help this early in the season. San Francisco entered the year with a surplus behind the plate. Patrick Bailey had emerged as their clear No. 1 option. They inked Murphy to a two-year deal over the offseason to add a power-hitting backup. That pushed Blake Sabol to Triple-A and former No. 2 overall draftee Joey Bart, who is out of options, off the roster entirely. San Francisco traded Bart to the Pirates during the first week of the season. They’ve been hit with a brutal stretch of injury luck at the position since then. Bailey landed on the seven-day concussion injured list on May 4. He was reinstated over the weekend but went back on the concussion list last night as he dealt with renewed virus-like symptoms. San Francisco lost Murphy to a significant left knee sprain one day after Bailey’s first IL placement. Today’s transfer rules him out of action into early July. Casali and Sabol will work as the MLB catching duo for the time being. Reetz heads back to Triple-A as the top depth option. Sabol still has options remaining, so the Giants could send him back to Sacramento once Bailey returns from the IL.

NFL Scout Shares Bold Take on Packers Rookie QB Michael Pratt

The Green Bay Packers did a very solid job during the 2024 NFL Draft, coming away with one steal in quarterback Michael Pratt. General manager Brian Gutekunst addressed several needs that were on the roster, aggressively pursuing upgrades along the offensive line and on defense at linebacker and safety. The Packers have added several players to the mix who should be immediate contributors. Nearly all of their selections on Days 1 and 2 of the 2024 NFL Draft should have a role in Week 1, health permitting. Green Bay won’t be turning to Michael Pratt early in the 2024 campaign, and ideally not at all unless it is in mop-up duty. But, the seventh-round pick out of Tulane has been a topic of discussion as some evaluators believe the Packers have one of the biggest steals in the draft with him. It was surprising to see Pratt still on the board in the seventh round, as some evaluators had an early Day 3 grade on him. Snagging him that late presented the Packers with incredible value, as they will look to develop him behind Jordan Love. One NFL scout who spoke to Packers Coverage thinks very highly of Pratt. In fact, the scout had him rated above some of the quarterbacks who went early in the draft and is high on him heading into the league. “Honestly, I thought he was better than a couple of the first-round quarterbacks. His ceiling is without a doubt being a high level starting NFL quarterback. He’s got a lot of work to do, but he’s got a special arm talent. He’s got a bright future in the league.” That is some high praise for the Tulane product from the NFL scout. That scout isn’t alone in that assessment, as plenty of people believe that Michael Pratt can put together a successful career in the NFL as a high-level backup at the very least. Expect him to compete this offseason with 2023 fifth-round pick Sean Clifford. Clifford won the backup job last offseason but will have to stave off Pratt this time around. It wouldn’t be surprising if the Packers also brought in an experienced veteran given the expectations surrounding the squad this season.


Giants reportedly wanted this Daniel Jones replacement for 2023 season

After failing to make the playoffs for the 13th consecutive season, the Buffalo Sabres are expected to change their secondary scoring options this summer. According to David Pagnotta of TheFourthPeriod, the Sabres are not expected to offer contracts to pending unrestricted free agents Victor Olofsson or Zemgus Girgensons. The reported news surrounding Olofsson does not come as a surprise, as the forward has seen his ice time steadily cut since the end of the 2019-20 NHL season. A reliable scoring option in years past, Olofsson has reached the 20-goal mark three separate times in six years with the Sabres organization, but has been known for poor defensive play as well as his play away from the puck. Suiting up in 314 games for Buffalo, Olofsson has scored 90 goals and 92 assists, with 33.5% of his production coming on the Sabres’ powerplay. Girgensons, on the other hand, has been a consistent defensively minded forward in Buffalo for the last decade. Drafted by the Sabres organization with the 12th overall pick of the 2012 NHL Draft, Girgensons has played in nearly 700 games for Buffalo, scoring 89 goals and 188 points while being a quality penalty killer to boot. Throughout his tenure with the Sabres, Girgensons has been through several ups and downs, playing under five different head coaches since his rookie season. On the open market, Girgensons will be hard-pressed to earn more than his current $2.5M AAV but should be able to find a spot on nearly every team’s fourth line. Letting Girgensons and Olofsson pursue greener pastures this summer, coupled with the Sabres moving on from Casey Mittelstadt and Kyle Okposo at this year’s trade deadline, it is apparent that Buffalo is looking to redesign its forward core. The organization has plenty of prospect talent at the forward position and should now have the flexibility to fill in the holes in any manner.
