  1. Honestly rate YOUR team's draft.

    Count me as a guy who really likes Ballentine. Crazy athletic, limited football experience, but good production at a small school. He offers an intriguing skillset in that he is remarkably good at blocking field goals coming off the edge. It's rare to see someone do that at all, and I believe he did it multiple times in college. I think he also may make the switch to FS, which I think he could be successful playing. It's easier to rewire a young player's brain to play a different position when they haven't been playing for very long.
  2. Honestly rate YOUR team's draft.

    Ryan Connelly is a much better pick than you think while Slayton is much worse. Connelly is surprisingly quick and great at sniffing out plays. I think he is instantly a great ST with the potential to be a very good backup ILB-average starting ILB, which is a good pick in the 4th. Slayton can't catch a cold; classic projection pick in that you hope he can fix that issue and pair it with his physical skills. The 7th round guys weren't bad picks either. Slayton was a multiple year starter at Syracuse and had motor/motivation issues. Seems like a guy that a scout or two is betting on. He'll get stashed on the practice squad with the potential to be rotational piece. Big George, to me, is a project that has starting guard potential. It all depends on how well he takes to coaching, but I know of some people who were actually high on him. Watch him in the Miss St game. He throws Montez Sweat to the ground on a few snaps. Yeah he loses a few snaps, but that's why he went in the 7th. He's got potential. I do agree though that Deandre Baker was our best pick overall while Julian Love was our best value selection. Between Baker, Love, and Beal, I think we've got a really solid CB group for a while.

    As far as value, the Daniel Jones pick get an F, maybe a D if you are feeling generous accounting for QB positional importance, but I really liked the rest of the draft. C-/D+
  4. So this was just an honest mistake due to a lack of awareness of how time works. It happens to the best of us.
  5. Biggest head scratching picks

    Sure dude.
  6. Biggest head scratching picks

    Yup, for not being the most player friendly GM and letting fan favorites walk. Extremely similar reasons as to why John Dorsey was fired. Is John Dorsey inept?
  7. Chao is a hack. Literally, he is a hack doctor and has been fired multiple times. I don't believe anything he says.
  8. It's insane how minimally invasive these arthroscopic surgeries are now. This doesn't sound serious, and the report makes that clear, so I'm not worried. We can't afford to lose him.
  9. Biggest head scratching picks

    How was he 'proven multiple times already that he's inept'? He's definitely made questionable decisions this offseason, but nobody has played any football yet to see if he was right or wrong about them.
  10. The Jets FO being mad that Mac drafted the best player in the draft instead of trading down is so dumb to me. I am almost sure this will backfire, especially with naming Gase the GM. The guy hasn't even proved he can make the transition from successful OC to HC.
  11. Giants newly drafted CB Corey Ballentine injured in shooting

    From what I've read, he got shot in the butt. There are way worst places to get shot.
  12. Giants sign RT Mike Remmers

    Solder is our LT, as he deserves to be after finishing the second half of the season very strong. Replacing Omameh and Flowers with Jamon Brown and Chad Wheeler helped a bit, but really what helped the offense improve drastically in the 2nd half of the season was the improved play and chemistry of Solder and Hernandez on the left side. Solder isn't an elite tackle or anything, but he's absolutely a solid one. Wheeler just isnt good. I wouldn't be ok with him having any role greater than a swing tackle.
  13. Giants sign RT Mike Remmers

    The right side of the Giants offensive line has gone from Patrick Omameh and Ereck Flowers last year to Kevin Zeitler and Mike Remmers this year. Pretty serious upgrade. Zeitler is an elite guard and Remmers is at least a serviceable right tackle.
  14. RT Mike Remmers signed by Giants

    As expected. Really makes me feel a lot more comfortable about our line.
  15. Keep One/Delete One

    General Manager or Head Coach Easy Offensive Coordinator or Defensive Coordinator Easy again. Best Offensive Player(non QB) or Best Defensive Player I dont even know who our best defensive player is. Saquon vs someone way worse than Saquon. Kicker or Punter Rosas is an all-pro Team Jersey or Team Helmet Have no problem with the jerseys while I prefer the old school GIANTS helmets Team Nickname or Team Colors Kinda hard to differentiate when the teams nickname is Big Blue... unless you mean Giants vs blue/white/red. In which case, the name is better.
