  1. How do you think Giants Secondary is?

    They have to sign someone now. There is no way you can go in hoping Sam Beal is the guy.. And you don't just throw Julian Love back over to CB.. If he is going to be an impactful player he has to be a rover.
  2. No brainer, let's hope Engram can stay healthy!
  3. OT Andrew Thomas selected by Giants 1.4

    He seems like a really good, down-to-earth dude as well. I think it was pretty obvious they waited as long as possible to try and find a trade partner but no luck so take your top rated OT and don't look back.
  4. S Xavier McKinney selected by Giants 2.36

    I'm conflicted. Obviously we need more pass rush but we potentially will get to pick the top safety? That's also pretty enticing. Not to mention, we can always take Cushenberry and really have our line set.
  5. Left Tackle or Simmons?

    I totally agree that we do need to protect our QB and RB, I get that. For arguments sake, putting Simmons on our current defense probably adds 6+ sacks on our defense and many coming from OTHER players. Simmons himself is probably only a 6-7 sack per season guy but he is the guy offenses have to account for. All of a sudden teams can't double Tomlinson, Williams or Lawrence. And we can disguise our defense based on the gameplan way better than we've been able to. Whether Simmons rushes or covers, if he's around the LOS he is going to be their priority. There are far more good OTs in the NFL than there are true game wreckers on defense. We have not had one of those since who, JPP?
  6. Left Tackle or Simmons?

    For me, it really comes down to the fact that we don't have a single game changer on defense. There is nobody that teams have to gameplan against that opens things up for the other guys. Yes, we need to improve our OL. Yes, it is an important position and NYG wouldn't be WRONG in addressing it with their first pick. But the bigger impact opportunity is on the defensive side of the ball. Start getting takeaways, go from bend-but-don't-break to suffocating three-and-outs, change the field position battle, don't make your young QB play from behind.. I see that as the biggest driver for turning this ship around.

    Couldn't agree more.. It's a no-brainer IMO.. Get a bonafide pass rusher and guaranteed one of the top OT. And we can afford to give him a big contract.
  8. XFL DB Dravon Askew-Henry signs with Giants

    don't have terribly high hopes here but it's a good low risk signing..
  9. RB Dion Lewis signs with Giants on 1 year deal

    I agree.. gives us a little bit of everything in the running game.. very reminiscent of the Pats teams for years
  10. LB David Mayo re-signed to 3 year deal

    Do we know how much guaranteed yet? I feel like gettelman doesn't bother trying to estimate league demand in some situations.. 3 year deal is totally unnecessary unless it's not guaranteed after year 2 or something

    Interesting that these reports are coming out on multiple higher level guys. Is it a result of having a lot of cap? A young QB? Does Joe Judge actually carry that much weight? It's just atypical of the Giants IMO
  12. LBs Alec Ogletree and Kareem Martin released

    its honestly just good to see some movement this offseason lol

    It really feels like Byron Jones is going to be the big money guy for us. I expect to sign some middle tier veterans on defense and then draft OL at #4 I'd rather get an impact defensive guy at #4 but it just doesn't seem to be shaping up that way. A long way to go though

    We are about 1 month away from FA opening and the combine comes up in a few weeks so I'm starting a general offseason thread. Teams can start franchising players Feb 25 but that should be a quiet period for us. With the hiring of Joe Judge and Jason Garrett, that increases the chances we spend on Devin McCourty or Byron Jones, both of which I would be pretty happy with. McCourty is a high-character guy who has obviously won a lot. He's also from the area and could be a great mentor for our young secondary as a guy who has played CB and FS for many years. Byron Jones is a younger, more athletic version of McCourty. He doesn't have as much pedigree yet still will likely be more expensive than McCourty. Joe Judge is going to push versatility and both of these guys have it so I think there is a good chance we end up with one of them. The stars have really aligned for us to sign a legitimate pass rusher as well. There aren't typically as many big name rushers that hit the open market so we have some options. We HAVE TO come away with one of those top guys. I know it will be painful to have completely wasted a premium draft pick but we have to let Leonard Williams walk. There is no use tying up so much cap space in a run stuffer that pushes the pocket a little bit. If I'm the Giants I go with McCourty, Yannick Ngakoue and Isaiah Simmons at #4. Immediately makes our defense aggressive and versatile. In this situation I hope to grab on OT with our 2nd pick.
  15. 2020 NFL draft thread

    Please no trade back.. we will most likely have the opportunity to draft the top ranked OL, LB or 2nd ranked EDGE and might have an opportunity to draft the top ranked CB. Take the best of any of those and let's grab a slam dunk
