  1. Looking forward to next year (a case for Eli)

    We didnt lose a third round pick. We used it on a corner that would have gone in the first or second round had he been in this coming draft class. We also have 3 4th round picks, a couple fifths, and a couple 7ths. We have ammunition. Haskins is a good QB and would fit in here perfectly. I think the dilemma is that he may require a trade up. If you trade up to get him, you will most likely be left with your first pick after him being in the 4th round, which is not great for a rebuilding team. I've thought about this and I think the most likely scenario is that Gettleman stays put at 6th. If Haskins falls into your lap, awesome, take him. If not, it means one of those fantastic defensive talents has fallen. Gettleman made it a point to mention specifically that the defense needs playmakers. Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Clelin Ferrell, Quinnen Williams, Ed Oliver, hell even Devin White are fantastic defensive playmakers. Take your guy there. Then if the 2nd round comes and there isnt a QB you like there either, 2020 is your year. Trade the house for Tua or Herbert or Fromm or Fields. Unfortunately you cant afford to wait until 2021 for Lawrence, but those 2020 QBs are really good as well. I think the Giants roll with Eli if they dont get their guy this year.
  2. Jaguars hire John DeFilippo as OC

    The Jags acquiring Foles leaves the Giants wide open to grab Haskins, barring a spectacular Miami or Denver trade up.
  3. Looking forward to next year (a case for Eli)

    It is mainly the money angle. We won't match what some of these other teams will throw at him. I think we are hitting a lull right now regarding Eli news, but I expect come March that we get some pretty definitive clarification if he is starting or going. And I truly believe it will be one of those two- Eli doesn't want to sit on the bench. He wants to play. I'm not even sure he would take well to an open competition. Gettleman is going to watch the tape of Eli, evaluate the FAs, evaluate the draft eligible guys, and make a decision. I think around that time, early March, is when you could expect a trade up as well, if we decide to do so for Haskins.

    With Kubiak gone in DEN, if Keenum goes as well, he would be a perfect fit here. Maybe the only perfect fit, at least that we could get in FA.
  5. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    I didn't know The Bonecrusher had been overtaken as the ultimate Patriots killer.
  6. AFC Championship: Patriots vs. Chiefs

    Bernard Pollard?
  7. Looking forward to next year (a case for Eli)

    I think this is easier said than done. I know Foles will command more than Eli is making this year. I think Bridgewater might end up being close to that as well. Flacco is going to get a lot of money as well, and I wouldn't want him anyway. I think our only options if we want to move on from Eli efficiently (little to no drop off in talent while saving money) is either drafting someone in the first or 2nd round or signing Case Keenum, assuming he is done in DEN. EDIT: I still think we should sign Luis Perez from the AAF and trade for Kyle Sloter from MIN. Let Shurmur work his magic with 2 incredibly talented, young, but inexperienced QBs. Keep Eli on the roster as a veteran presence until one stands out.
  8. You're the owner of all teams that lost in the playoffs....

    If I owned 6 NFL teams, I'd sell 5 of them, never work again, and just enjoy my life.
  9. Trades Trades TRADES

    With the way the draft falls in this situation, I'd be very happy with J Williams there. We would need to go defense in the rest of the draft, but with a FA guard signing and drafting of Williams, we have a really good OL for years.
  10. Looking forward to next year (a case for Eli)

    Defenses don't win championships anymore- look at the 4 remaining teams. They are the top 4 scoring offenses in the league. More importantly, look at their OLs. There are the 3 best OL in the NFL this year and the Chiefs, who are pretty damn good as well. The defense overall needs a ton of help, but if Gettleman decides the best course of action based on who is realistically available in the draft and FA is to stay with Eli but solidify the OL, I'm ok with that.
  11. Eagles vs. Saints: Divisional Round

    After the 1st quarter, Nick Foles looked human for the first time since he was in a Rams uniform. Maybe he finally woke up?
  12. Cardinals to hire Vance Joseph as DC

    Steve Sarkisian is not a good traditional OC at all. However, it's always interesting to me when such strong offensive minds get hired as head coach and bring in different guys as their offensive coordinator. Sarkisian wont be running the offense or calling plays, but his input in the offense and small contributions here and there may be the difference. Interested to see how this works out. I have a good feeling about it though.
  13. Would Eagles trade Wentz for the world?

    We don't need to trade for Foles. We'll just sign him this offseason. In all seriousness, signing Foles is probably 1B in terms of my ideal answer to the QB situation with 1A being drafting Haskins
  14. The Mock: Kyler Murray Edition (With Trades)

    Can't argue with going and getting our guy. It would really suck to only have 1 pick in the first 3 rounds though. Gettleman would have to work some magic in the mid-late rounds, where we are stocked full of picks.
  15. Sooners' Kyler Murray officially declares for NFL draft

    Normally I would scoff at a guy his size playing in the NFL, but I have been proven wrong a decent amount lately. Darren Sproles is still playing and still effective. Tarik Cohen is the most dangerous weapon the Bears have. Tyreek Hill is the most dangerous man in the NFL. And those guys play RB/WR, positions that take way more punishment than a QB does. A QB has never been more protected than they are right now. I've discounted small but incredible athletes for their stature before and was flat out wrong. I think Murray has a shot in the NFL. Though of course, not all guys like that pan out. There are still Tavon Austin types around.
