  1. What are the G-Men doing at #2?

    To be more precise I believe the Giants are more following the 1998 and 1999 Denver Bronco teams more than they are following Dallas example. Just not sure such an outdated philosophy will work in today NFL.
  2. Ereck Shun: Giants' OT No-Show Day 1

    He is a dominant physical specimen, not sure how to measure insanely. His problem has always been having horrible technique do to playing poorly it has effected his attitude. I really wish Flowers would go to an offensive lineman camp where they would fix his technique. Who knows perhaps having a professional agent for the first time might give him a person that will give him good advice and put his career back on track.
  3. Drafts over.. Dez maybe now??

    He been so good the Dallas Cowboys felt the need to have a manager with him all the time. And one of the reason why he was let go was because his sidelines outburst was seen as a negative given his level of production of late. Maybe you want the guy whom his own mother said tried to kill her mentoring Odell. I highly doubt the Giants agree with you.
  4. RB Saquon Barkley selected by Giants 1.2

    What do you consider selling the farm? The RG3 draft deal and again what happens when another team in a better draft position offers the same deal. And this is not about having the perfect draft, it is about how hard it is to get a franchise QB. There are teams out there that have gone decades with out a franchise QB, Bills, Jets, Browns, Dolphins just to name a few.
  5. RB Saquon Barkley selected by Giants 1.2

    And just how are we going to get him? We are not going to have the 2nd pick in the draft again for a while. And if he is as good as you think he is then other teams in better draft position will also be trying to get him. We had our chance at a franchise QB and we blew it. If we win one more Superbowl with Eli I can see it being worth it. If not and Sam Darnold becomes the franchise QB that he most likely will be, then getting Barkley to me would have been a mistake.
  6. Drafts over.. Dez maybe now??

    Oh hell no. Odell can be enough of a headcase all by himself. The last thing we need is a hot headed Dez making Odell even worst.
  7. Grade Your Draft

    Looks like no one has graded the Giants. I might as well do it. Round 1, RB Saquon Barkley A, I myself wanted Sam Darnold not Saqoun, however even I can't deny his talent and RB is a need for the Giants. Lowest grade I can give is an A. Round 2, G Will Hernandez A+, Such a beautiful thing when talent, value and need are all combined into a draft pick. Round 3, LB Lorenzo Carter A-, We add another Linebacker to help us adjust to the new 3-4 scheme we will be using, he was projected to be drafted in the 2nd round. Round 3, DT BJ Hill B - He is going to help the DL rotation and in a season or two could be a starter. I would have preferred we upgraded at RT, C, FS or CB with this pick. Round 4, QB Kyle Lauletta C-, If Kyle or Davis Webb take over for Eli in a couple of years then Dave Gettleman is a genius and was right to pass up on Sam Darnold. Odds are he is wrong and Kyle Lauletta will just become the next Ryan Nassib (in other words have no impact at all for the Giants). Round 5, RJ McIntosh B-, Like with BJ he will help the DL rotation, but there were a couple of RT's that had dropped that I would have preferred we drafted instead. I give the Giants draft overall an A- because the talent brought in will improve the team. I thought the Giants were around a 5-11 team before the draft, I could see us being 8-8. My problem with the draft is we could have used the last three draft picks to care of needs, upgrading at the areas I said earlier, RT, C, FS, CB.

    Don't forget future hall of famer.
  9. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    I agree about the new coaching, I believe Mcadoo put us in position to lose last year. And the o-line has been upgraded at LT and LG. I do not see our current tiny center as an upgrade. I am very concerned about the future RT position. From what I have seen of what left of the OT (Joseph Noteboom and Orlando Brown) none of them look too good.
  10. What are the G-Men doing at #2?

    Up grading just one spot on the offensive line to above average is not enough. We have a tiny center. I have no idea who is going to be the starters at either OG spot or the RT. I don't believe Saquon is going to be able to do anything behind our offensive line.
  11. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    Of course I am not comparing Brandon Marshall to Saquon Barkley, I am comparing what people are saying about what our offensive should be last year, like they are saying what it should be now. When the offense line still can't block. I hope you right about his ability to produce behind a bad offensive line. It is one thing to do so on the college level, it is whole different world to do so in the NFL.
  12. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    I am sure we can pick up a good guard in the second round, but quality tackles are a rare commodity. There might be a quality tackle when we pick in the second round. I would not bet on one being there.
  13. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    This reminds a lot of about what people were saying when we signed Brandon Marshall. All flash 'Wow look at the potential!' But no substance 'Wow they still can't block anything.'
  14. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    I don't doubt that, but how many quality OL will be gone by then. We should have traded down to #4 or #5 picked up Nelson, then used the the extra picks to move back into the first round and pick up a quality tackle. I think we would have been much better off accepting the offer of what the Jets gave to the Colts.
  15. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    I don't mind them having faith in Eli so much. Just not sure about investing in a RB so early with a below average offensive line. Our best two offensive lineman right now is one of smallest centers in the NFL and an above average left tackle. Given the limited life of a running back in the NFL, just not sure how effective he will be. If he is the next Adrian Peterson he will be worth it. From what little I have seen he looks more like the next Reggie Bush.
