The New York Giants find themselves in an early hole this season after losses to the Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions to open the season. Monday night’s loss to the Lions was a particularly sloppy showing. The Giants can’t run the ball effectively.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — The former financial adviser to Dallas Cowboy Darren McFadden is being ordered to pay McFadden's attorneys because he failed to provide court-ordered information in a lawsuit by McFadden. McFadden, a former Arkansas Razorback, is suing Michael Vick in federal court in Little Rock for allegedly misappropriating millions of dollars of McFadden's money. Court records first reported by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette show U.S. District Judge James Moody last Tuesday ordered Vick to pay $3,382.50 for McFadden's attorney's efforts to get Vick to reply to requests for information. Vick isn't the former NFL player of the same name.
