  1. I think it is more of a change in direction.  Some players that Jerry Reese drafted are still in the NFL oddly enough.  Overall the problem has been just too many misses and the failure to put players in a position to excel.  We are left to decipher if it was Reese drafting the wrong guys Coughlin under utilizing them.  I think Jerry Reese has had two good drafts and Tom Coughlin had been overachieving.

    I like Ximines as a project player better simply because they are using him how he was used in college as a pass rusher/run defender.

    I'm sick of hearing about how Carter has had an amazing camp blah blah blah just show me some results it's year three.

    Your right they have to either just make Carter an off ball LB or a pass rusher stop trying to make him do both.

    Personally I think Carter would excell if they just put him at LB and worked on his pass coverage abilities and the odd blitz. We need LBs we have a roster full of pass rush projects.

    I think if Carter falters like he has expect Brown to fill his spot.

    Brown played the pass well in coverage and could get after the QB.

    When they drafted Carter I fully expected the Giants to put him in coverage and help him excel at it.  Our pass coverage at the linebacker position is abysmal.   Not going to have a pass rush if receivers are going to continue to run uncovered inside of 3 seconds.  It would be great to have  one player who can do both but lets just get one guy who can do this great and have another player focus on pass rush.


  3. These are the two players that most are expecting to deliver our pass rush.  Carter has slightly more experience, Ximines started showing some excellent production towards the end of the season.  Ideally we'd want both of them to succeed.  Carter had a better first year than second, a combination of being put into coverage more than being sent after the QB.  Under a new defensive coordinator Giants will have to decide if Carter is better in coverage or going after the QB because I think at this point he needs to be doing just one instead of both.  This was the issue with his college play, team had him do both and the results were average at best.

    Ximines is now looking at year two and the expectations to significantly improve are high, just as they were for Carter.

    So who is your favorite going into the preseason Carter or Ximines?

    Lombardo is one of those guys that if his name is on it, I won't click it, I won't read it. He's an Eagle fan shit stirrer who can go fuck himself. Or better yet, he can go fuck Pat Leonard. 

     

    I think he might enjoy fucking Pat.  I like reading regardless of the source, yes even Pat Leonard.


  5. I have read one article on this by Matt Lombardo for NJ.com.  He thinks Giants should make yet another example of a player by cutting DeAndre Baker now.  Cut him before anyone gets facts outside of an arrest warrant has been issued for his arrest.  Justification for this is to cement the authority of Coach Judge over the locker room.  I think it is ridiculous to consider it until more information is available.  Cutting Baker now is just a knee jerk reaction, be thoughtful and get all the facts possible from every source.

    Beal is the next CB in line.  Love is a Nickel/Dime CB.  Logan Ryan sounds like a good choice but we'd have to clear cap space just to sign him and that is unlikely.

    LOL...who were the ones saying Golden was going to get $10mm per year?

     

    He's going to end up with this one year prove it $5mm deal yet again.

    The market never materialized.  Top 4 Edge defenders at the start of FA:  Jadeveon Clowney, Markus Golden, Everson Griffen, and Clay Matthews.  None of them have been signed.  It has been argued that Clowney is the reason and I doubt it.


  7. How long can we complain about this?  Its been over 6 months and unfortunately the ramifications continue to this day.  I'm not saying we sweep it under the rug, just focus on something else.  Am I the only person still hopeful that this can still work out instead of cripple us for the next 4-5 years?  I try to find the silver lining in all things, right now I'm looking at Williams on a 1 year tender at a ridiculous price and the Giants realize this year we shouldn't give him 4 more years at anywhere near this amount if at all. 

    I'd like to think we'll all be eating crow on this deal because Williams plays lights out this year (doubtful). :russian-roulette2:


  8. I think this was Dave Gettleman's worst draft.  Did some reaching and I won't talk about his failure to address the pass rush because he has been drafting them and they need to start producing before we start replacing them;  It's just too soon.  I think they could have done better than Peart in the third round and the third day picks were just equally disappointing.  I will be surprised if they're on the team in September and this will be the nail in Dave Gettleman's career.  I hope he proves me wrong.


  9. I'm getting tired of these threads.  Get over it already its been done and it was his decision to make.  Hard to call it a huge blunder based on 8 games and a massive salary cap hit yet I have yet to see the fruits of this trade like the rest of you.  Under a different coach and he performs like Richard Seymour is everyone going to shut the fuck up about it?  Nope because it was only one year.  Gotta let it play out because we don't have a choice.

    Teams run a lot of 3 safety sets, plus I bet we will see a lot of Peppers in the box with Love and McKinney as high safeties. 
     

     

    Giants did win a super bowl with a three safety set so that is also a possibility.  I'll let you all figure out which one. :D


  11.  Guess this means Love is moving back to CB which is not a bad thing.  I do wonder if McKinney is the eventual successor to Peppers simply because I don't see McKinney as the sideline to sideline high free safety we're still missing.

    I think Wills is a better RT if we are just talking "whos the better tackle"

    But Thomas is going to be a stud.

    When you have a baby QB and a HoF RB you need studs, not boom or bust projects.

    Plus we need a guy who can play both RT/LT like THomas can since Solder is probably starting the year at LT.

    Giants are not drafting the guy who just plays RT for the next 4 years.


  13. Andrew Thomas was the best offensive tackle period.

    He started his college career at RT and all he did was run block like a freight train for two seasons.  Then he moved over to LT and got better at pass protection.  He didn't forget how to block like a freight train for the running game.  His offense ran play action and ran the ball.

    The NY Giants want to run the ball and play action pass.  Andrew Thomas is the perfect fit.  Every other offensive tackle was either a project, or just a RT or eventually just a Guard.  We gave Reese hell for going after athletes over football players, Thomas is a football player.

    Oh I also still believe something is going to go wrong horribly technically.

    Some team is going to drop connection and the entire thing will have to be put on hold multiple times.

    I bet we redraft Lawrence Taylor, fans will be happy for hours before they realize the NFL draft got hacked.
