I have 15+ years of experience covering the New York Giants. I'm a a member of the Professional Football Writers of America and a 2013 Yahoo! Contributor Award Winner (http://x.co/4xJkm).
I began my career with Inside Football, an independent and accredited publication covering the New York Giants. This opportunity has led to my covering five Super Bowls (including the last three in which the Giants participated), the first-ever International Series game (between the Giants and Miami) held in London during the 2007 season, NFL Drafts, training camps, games and practices.
As a credentialed beat writer, I have access to players, coaches and league personnel who provide me with insight that I incorporate into my writing. My goal is to provide readers with a unique perspective on the hot topics involving the team and to generate thoughtful and spirited discussions and debates.
Be sure to follow me on Twitter (@Patricia_Traina) for all the latest on the Giants and to submit questions for my Twitter mailbag articles.
Last friday, my friend Steve Brown was diagnosed with Leukemia and just started his treatment this week. Steve is a senior at James Caldwell High School and was set to play football for Lehigh University in the fall. Today, cancer survivor and Giants Linebacker, Mark Herzlich called Steve, to give him some words to help him get through this tough time. Being a cancer survivor himself, Herzlich's words impacted Steve in a tremendous way.
Steve, who has been a longtime Giants fan tweeted this today after his call from Herzlich
RT @steve_brown31: Sucha sick surprise to get a call from Mark Herzlich on my cell.. Someone who continues to thrive after beating cancer #cancerissoft
Herzlich's and Steve's story deserves to be shared and it would also benefit my friend, Steve, if people heard about his story. I can be reached at my email email@example.com if you have any questions regarding this story.
Pat, I caught you on Big Blue Kickoff you sound like the nicest person ever, now I'll feel bad about disagreeing with you on anything!!
The last few drafts have been spotty. What's being done to improve the system? Do the Giants have a quality control system in place to spot and rectify weaknesses?
It's official, P. Traina is my favorite B/R writer on the Giants beat.
At the risk of sounding ignorant, I must admit to having my doubts about a woman having real insight in the "men's club" known as football, but she has won me over.
She's an obvious Giants' fan, but not an apologist for the team.
She has a sense of humor, but doesn't make her articlers about her personality.
She presents both investigative news and fresh perspective.
Way to go, Patricia! ... and keep 'em coming!
should leagues impose salary cap for athletes in NFL?
Been reading so many articles on the Giants on bleacher report over a while and i have to say i love your work and i have agreed with your analysis on Giants issues. Identifying the complex answer to what have been the problems we face after this season. The coverage on the coaches who have under performed have been top notch and some of those coaches did deserve to be on the hot seat.
Keep up the great work!
You are the best.....keep it up Pat you will be a legend some day.
I've been a fan of your work for a long time; it's certainly exciting to have you aboard as a NYG featured columnist. It will help B/R's Giants community a lot by having an actual beat writer as a contributor.
