Conference Championship Weekend has arrived and as much as we hate to say it, the NY Giants will be watching things from home. Only four teams remain in the hunt to try and book a trip to the Super Bowl, and Sunday is going to be filled with excitement.

In the AFC, the Chiefs and Bengals will dance, while the Eagles and 49ers want that NFC title. For the Big Blue fans getting ready for the action, there’s no question they’re going to be watching some former G-Men players, while also hoping other guys who have bashed NY in the past don’t perform so hot. In this piece, we take a look at four guys we wouldn’t mind having rough showings:

4. CB Eli Apple

A former first-round pick of the NY Giants, we don’t have to tell you that things didn’t go well with Eli Apple in the Big Apple (no pun intended), as he was a total bust in the NFC East. Apple ended up getting traded to the New Orleans Saints by Big Blue, but the NFC South side washed their hands of him after the 2019 season.

After appearing in two games with Carolina in 2020, Apple signed with the Bengals and he’s found a home their for the past two years. However, no one in East Rutherford has forgotten about the beef with Apple, as the cornerback even said it’s a toss up between the Saints and Giants fan bases for which one he hates the most. Okay then:


Apple has been talking a whole lot of smack on Twitter, including going after the Bills following the Divisional Round win over Buffalo. Now, he’s hoping to take down the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. We’d love nothing more than to see Apple have a rough game, similar to his showing against the Rams in the Super Bowl last year. Someone needs to shut him up.
