  1. Giants to pick #2 in 2018 NFL Draft

    The 2nd overall pick is super valuable this year. It would take too much for the Bills to move up. If the Giants move back, it won't be far. No sane team picking past pick 10 would give up what needs to be given up to get #2.
  2. G John Greco re-signed by Giants

    At worst, he's a solid backup. He's played under Shurmur before. Really like this signing. Here come the hog mollies.
  3. 2018 NFL free agency

    Darkwa is younger, cheaper, and better. I don't see it.
  4. Giants Hire 19th Choice, Mike Shula, As OC/ QB Coach

    They also won 0 through the first 5, including a period of time where everyone was healthy. His offense was broken and he couldn't lead the team. It wasn't just injuries.
  5. Giants Hire 19th Choice, Mike Shula, As OC/ QB Coach

    The Giants just did with Mcadoo. You could see how they'd be a bit spurned by that and opt for proven commodities for their next hires.
  6. Panthers OC Mike Shula hired as OC/QB coach

    I really like it, for reasons I explained in the other thread. Shula built an offense to cater to Newton's strengths, and you saw what it could do when Newton was on. They went 15-1, went to the Super Bowl, and had the best offense in the NFL that year. Cam's been significantly worse since then, especially as a passer, and it has shown. PFF had Cam's adjusted completion percentage ranked 32nd and 37th in the league the past 2 years. The gripe that Panthers fans had with Shula that, rightfully, ran him out of town was his play calling, which he will not be doing here. Shula taking on a dual role after Shurmur said he wanted 2 people to do those jobs, and hiring one to do both tells me Shula will be performing less OC duties than one would on any other team. I think he will be gameplanning less and focusing on the players themselves more. I think his strengths as a coach can come through a lot in the position we gave him. I'm excited. With Shurmur on the record as taking over the offense, a guy like Bevell, a traditional play calling OC, didn't make much sense for our coordinator opening. Also of note is Greg Olsen didn't have a 1000 yard receiving season until Shula got to Carolina.
  7. Who will be the next offensive coordinator?

    I really love this Mike Shula hiring. He got a lot of undeserved flack in Carolina. He's incredibly versatile; he built that entire offense around Cam to work with his specific skillset. He's a really smart guy. Also, this makes us more likely to be willing to draft Lamar Jackson, who we could get later in the draft than at 2 and is one of my favorite players in the draft.
  8. Who will be the next offensive coordinator?

    I think attention turns to Bevell now, not Staley. The former is much more qualified. Plus I'm not sure I'd like seeing Staley in blue.
  9. Stefanski to stay as QB Coach

    Doesn't feel right that a team can block what is really a move up just because all "assistant" coach positions are viewed as lateral moves. Feels even more wrong after Stefanski was passed over by the Vikings for their OC then is denied an opportunity to get that job elsewhere. Definitely feel a little jilted as a Giants fan.
  10. Who will be the next offensive coordinator?

    Blocking a move up for an assistant coach is bad business. Why are teams even allowed to do that?
  11. Who will be the next offensive coordinator?

    Stefanski will absolutely be our OC. Should finalize soon.
  12. John DeFilippo hired as OC of Vikings

    Stefanski is ours now.
  13. Josh McDaniels Decides to Stay with New England

    Mcdaniels pulled a Belichick. I feel bad for the Colts. Good thing Jim Caldwell is available again?

    That trade is ridiculous. Then the Giants draft Guice at 15? Ew. Give us Davenport or Edmunds or Evans.
  15. Eagles vs Patriots SBLII GDT

    Jeez. And this was a low estimate.
