  1. What would it take for the Giants to make the playoffs?

    Honestly, if they're right around .500, Daniel Jones plays and flashes some promise, and they're a watchable team, I'll consider it a good year
  2. Daniel Jones is looking better than Haskin

    I'm sure if Daniel Jones had looked horrendous in these two preseason games this thread would be full of nuanced, well-balanced takes about how preseason results don't mean anything and not "LOl DaNIel JOnEs sucks the giaNTS ArE idioTs" posts. I thought the pick was a reach when it was made. I'll be the first one to admit it. But he has done well so far, which is especially impressive considering he's doing it in the face of the immense criticism people (including myself) threw at him before he even took a snap in practice. It's way way way too early to draw any conclusions, but it's nice to see him come in and play well. @Gmen has been the one dude (at least that I've seen) banging the drum for Daniel Jones since he was drafted.
  3. Preseason Week 2: Giants vs. Bears

    Cody Latimer and the receivers made some PLAYS. And DJ impressed. I could not be more please with how he's developing. Can't wait to watch him play more.
  4. Early take on the Gmens rookies

    1- Daniel Jones / QB I have to stand up here and say that I thought this pick was a reach when it was made. I didn't like it. The more I looked at it, the more I thought "Well, Coach Shurmur can probably scheme around his deficiencies. Plus teams will be keying on Saquon." I think I was wrong. DJ is going to have growing pains for sure, but watching him now and hearing all the camp reports gives me a great deal of hope. He has carried himself with dignity and class from the beginning in spite of the negativity that most (including myself) have thrown his way. On the field he has shown accuracy, touch, poise, and flashes of the ability to go through progressions. I can't wait to see him use RPOs with Saquon. QBs are hard to get, and seeing him play well has made me feel a whole lot better about the future of the franchise. 2- Dexter Lawrence / NT I wasn't crazy about this pick either, and I'm crap at evaluating interior linemen, but I think it makes sense due to how Bettch wants to play defense. Hopefully he shows some pass rush ability and the Giants' pass rush can be more of a group effort, because I don't think any one guy is getting 15 sacks this year. 3- Deandre Baker / CB My quibble here is I would have liked to see us stay at 37 and draft Dalton Risner. I think the line is still a young tackle away from being in good shape, but hey, can't fix everything immediately. You can never have enough DBs in the NFL, so I've warmed to the Giants drafting DeAndre, Julian Love, and Corey Ballentine. Lots of cheap young help for the secondary. 4- Oshane Ximenes / LB/Edge I think this will be a good pick. I've liked everything that I've read about him. Hopefully he brings a little juice as the 3rd guy in the pass rush. 5- Julian Love / Nickel CB/FS I liked this pick a lot. I wonder if the Giants are overloading him by having him learn a bunch of different positions but we'll see. Good tackler, good awareness. Even if he's pressed into action as a safety I think he'll be much better than Curtis "Don't ask me to tackle" Riley. Man that guy sucked. 6- Ryan Connelly / LB If the guy becomes an average starter, this will be a huge steal as a 5th round pick. 7- Darius Slayton / WR No idea. Let's see if he can stay healthy and carry over his spring. 8- Corey Ballentine / CB Awesome to see him flash and make some plays after enduring what he has endured. He has the athleticism. Let's see if he can translate it. Great for a 6th rounder though. 9- Georgo Asafo- Adjei / OT No idea. 10- Chris Slayton / DT No idea.
  5. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    For the record, I was reading that a bunch of people gave the Seahawks' 2012 draft low grades, and all they did was draft Russell Wilson and Bobby Wagner. Nobody really knows. Just have to let them play and see what happens now.
  6. Hypothetical : Jones vs. Haskins

    I think that this is what I (and a lot of Giants fans) find so irritating. If you're going to be about BPA, then take BPA. Gettleman said he wouldn't make an exception for QBs, but that's exactly what happened. Oh well. He's on our team now, so we'll see.
  7. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    The way I'm trying to look at it is that Pat Shurmur got a good year out of Case Keenum. Jones has considerably more talent than Keenum, and Shurmur probably thinks that Jones fits his style of offense like a glove. Shurmur will use a lot of bootlegs and rollouts and quick passes to emphasize YAC and play to Jones' strengths. And defenses will need to load up to stop Saquon, which should make RPOs more effective. If Jones is going to succeed, he couldn't ask for a better place in my opinion. The only negative we be the harsh spotlight he's under.
  8. Official: Dolphins trade for Cardinals QB Josh Rosen

    I have to say, for a 22 year old that supposedly is "aloof" and has "maturity issues" (always from anonymous sources) I feel like Josh has handled this bad hand about as well as someone can. Larry Fitzgerald and Steve Wilks had nothing but positive things to say about him too. I hope he does well in Miami.
  9. Maybe they can swing a deal and trade Jackrabbit for a decent offensive tackle?
  10. Bro I was just thinking about this good call!
  11. LB Oshane Ximines selected by Giants @ 3.95

    Honestly, that's my favorite pick of the draft so far. He can provide some juice on 3rd downs to start his career. Still a bunch of good players left for tomorrow too.
  12. DT Dexter Lawrence selected by Giants @ 1.17

    What an incredibly disappointing first round
  13. QB Daniel Jones selected by Giants @ 1.6

    Look at it this way man at least this pick will get everyone fired and we can start over.
  14. QB Daniel Jones selected by Giants @ 1.6

    It's cool it's not like a great pass rusher was there.
  15. Giants to pick #6 in 2019 NFL draft

    My mock (I think they might actually do this too) 6: Josh Allen, OLB Kentucky (Ed Oliver and the Raiders mystery pick push him down) 17: Daniel Jones, QB, Duke (It's inevitable) 37: Dalton Risner, OT, Kansas State (More likely Greg Little here but I hate Greg Little so I refuse to put him in here, but it'll probably be Greg Little) 95 (probably will be a trade chip but if not, corner. CB Julian Love, I guess?) 108: Taylor Rapp, FS, Washington (I think they'll trade up somewhere in the high third round for Rapp) 132: Nate Davis, OG, Charlotte Somewhere in the 5th: Foster Moreau, TE, LSU
