  1. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    https://thebiglead.com/2019/02/13/odell-beckham-jr-trade-jay-glazer/ What do y'all think?
  2. AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year: Saquon Barkley

    Happy for Saquon. He was pretty much the only reason to watch the Giants this past season. I hope the Giants can get a decent team around him
  3. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    Oh and I also like Dremont Jones as a target with that second rounder. Basically any way to improve the pass rush 😂
  4. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    I’ve heard Haskins compared to Ben Roethlisberger. Thought that was interesting 🤔 The guys I’d like to see in the first round are: Haskins, Ed Oliver, or Jonah Williams. I don’t know as much about Clelin Ferrell. I know Oliver is kind of a diva so that worries me a little bit, but I think he can flat out play. Pressure up the middle seems to be the way to bother the QB these days. In the second round I’d like to see one of the following: Taylor Rapp, Chris Lindstrom, Zach Allen, or David Edwards. The four big sore spots for the Giants (at least as far as I can tell) are QB (obviously), Edge Rusher, OT (specifically RT, although another big molly at RG wouldn’t be frowned at either), and FS (Curtis Riley is the worst safety I’ve ever seen. And we’ve seen some bad safeties in recent years). QB and edge rusher are the two hardest to solve. I suspect that Jacksonville is going to make a big push for Nick Foles because their team is built to win now (while guys like Jalen Ramsey and Myles Jack and Yannick Ngakoue and Leonard Fournette are on their rookie deals) and Marrone and Coughlin need to win in a big way to keep their jobs. Plus Foles could be a panacea for that immature locker room. Foles and an instant impact player at 7 could make Jax dangerous again. I’m definitely leery of Denver at 10 and Miami at 13 sniffing around for QBs, although I think the Fish might tear it down this year, build their lines, and play for the 2020 QB market. I think you could find a good enough safety (Tyrann Mathieu anyone? Bettcher coached him in AZ) and possibly even a RT (Daryl Williams?) in free agency. I think the money for the edge rushers is about to get stupid, but the Giants could potentially get a B level guy like Preston Smith to help there while the market explodes for Dee Ford, DeMarcus Lawrence, and of course Jadeveon Clowney (the Colts should try to sign Clowney 😶) I think it’s somewhat realistic to fill two of the big four holes in FA, and two in the first two rounds of the draft. Maybe: - Eli takes a reasonable paycut like Peyton did late in his career. QB: Haskins (6th overall pick. Eli is a great mentor and maybe he sits out half the year to get ready and then takes over ) RT: Daryl Williams (FA, the Gettleman connection) FS: Taylor Rapp (2nd round, love this kid he’s my man crush in this draft. I think he’ll have an Eric Weddle-esque career. And I’m tired of awful safety play) Edge: Preston Smith (FA. Not a top end guy but I don’t think we can afford the top end guys) Then for the rest of the draft fill out the guts of the roster: another interior offensive lineman, another corner, another edge project, another interior linebacker, etc. Gettleman isn’t perfect but he drafted pretty darn well this past year. I also think the Giants should at least consider flipping OBJ if they get a good price (Could be a win-win for both for the right package. The 9ers specifically intrigue me as a destination) Bottom line is the Giants just need more good, young players (doi 😂) and I think the best way to do that is to hold onto all their picks and take as many shots in the draft as they can. I really don’t think the Giants can afford to package their picks and trade up when the roster is still in pretty rough shape (especially that high second rounder. That’s a potential instant starter for a few years).
  5. Hate the Cowboys but I'm really really happy he has come all the way back from his knee injury. It's great to see
  6. Absolutely love how hard Chris Carson runs
  7. Week 17: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants. All done

    Sidebar to something positive: did anyone else really like some of the calls that Shurmur dialed up? I loved that one play where Eli pumped to Barkley and turned around and threw it to Engram. Cool play. And the end around to Shepherd. Shurm is taking advantage of defenses keying on Barkley. Also the pitches to Engram have been fun. Haskins could be a monster in this offense.
  8. Week 17: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants. All done

    ^ agreed Shock. I just don’t think the Giants get rid of Eli I think they’re determined to keep doubling down. Regardless of whether it’s the right decision of not
  9. Looking forward to next year (a case for Eli)

    Bahahaha I love this 😂 Great writeup GMENNATION I really enjoyed it. I agree that that’s probably what the Giants are thinking. Unless Haskins is their guy they’ll probably ride out another year of Eli. Couldnt agree more that the lines on both sides are the priority. I’d like to see either Jonah Williams or the best edge rusher (I don’t know much about them yet beyond that Nick Bosa is the best), then at the top of round two take the position that you didn’t hit in the first. This year is deep with defensive linemen. Maybe we get lucky and get a first round value in round two kind of like we did with Will Hernandez? 🤔 They must find a decent starting safety. Absolutely must. But I feel like it’s easier to locate a decent safety in free agency than an OT or an edge player. Those guys get stupid expensive. I’d really like to see those 4th rounders spent on a Center and another DB. Maybe we need to fortify the roster again this season and then target the QBOTF in 2020. Who knows?
  10. Week 17: Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants. All done

    Honestly, if watching Riley pull up on a tackle and knowing the defense would blow that 4th and 15 and 2 point conversion doesn’t sum up this season, I don’t know what does. Eli has gotten a ton of criticism this year, a lot of it deserved, but I feel like no one has been talking about how hideously bad the defense has been. Especially the secondary. Quarterback, edge rusher, right tackle, and the secondary are all huge needs. I don’t know how that all gets sorted in one offseason. Im just glad it’s over. Been a painful few years. Now I can focus on free agency and he draft in peace 😂
  11. Seems about right. Minus Vernon making it as an alternative
  12. We're just not a good team. Beat up on a bunch of bad teams and ambushed the Bears without Trubisky. I think that these next two games against teams with playoff aspersions will be pretty ugly.
  13. Eli Apple traded to New Orleans Saints

    Should've asked for Teddy Two Gloves back. I'll never forget the Giants losing out on both of the players they wanted at 10
  14. Looking to the future draft.. (yes already)

    Sup fellas? Happy to be back I think that the Giants should just draft the best players they can (God knows they have enough needs). I think Teddy duking it out with Lauletta would be enough to get decent production out of QB, and if that doesn't work out, the 2020 draft should have some good QBs. The Giants have to get back to beating up people in the trenches, and for as bad as things are now, I feel a lot better with Gettleman running the draft room. Our ownership is good and I still think Shurmur will prove to be a good coach. Just gonna have to take this year on the chin.
  15. Fire Sale Time

    Man, I wish the Giants had flipped Eli Apple for Teddy Bridgewater. Hopefully Lauletta can get a few games and if we can sign Teddy in the offseason, they can duke it out. Dedicate this 2019 offseason solely to fixing the lines. Draft Ed Oliver and Beau Benzschawel or David Edwards at the top of round 2. I legitimately feel for guys like Sterling Shepard and Landon Collins that are still out there playing hard. I hope all this losing doesn't poison them.
