Toomer...

Hey I don't know about you guys, but once in awhile I check out the GMB just to see what people have to say there (I know there are alot of clowns over there). I bring this up because I am absolutely shocked to see people week in and week out mention Toomer lost a step, Toomer will retire at the end of the year, etc... The fact is that Toomer can do some things that NONE of our receivers can do. He single handedly wins us a few games a year with his amazing toe drag ability. My question is why is everyone so quick to dismiss Toomer (or want to see him retire at the end of the year)? I know he's getting up there in age and Hixon has looked impressive, but lets be honest.... like I said Toomer can do things none of our other wideouts can do and he brings experience and stability to the table. Who says he doesn't come back at the end of the year and continue to perform?

Toomer is one of the all time Giants greats imo. He's no super-star but he's steady and clutch. Oh and he's a classy down to earth person too.

Totally contradicted himself on PTI today.

 

 

Q: Do you feel the Giants are getting the credit you deserve now, (brings up power rankings).

 

 

 

Toomer: I don't pay attention to power rankings at week 5 of the season.

Q: Do the Giants still play with a chip on their shoulder (brings up lack of respect for being SB champs)

 

 

 

Toomer: Well, we were 2 and 0 and still weren't first in the power rankings.

 

 

:unsure:

Honestly, I dont think Toomer can make the big plays he has in the past anymore. Meaning he has lost a step. I love Toomer for what he's done for this team year in and year out, but I have to agree with the critics on this one.

 

I knew the guy lost a step in 2004 when he didn't score a touchdown the whole year.

He's been a great role player since and I am very glad to see him get a ring. He is

probably the best receiver in the game today who gets his feet in bounds. The catch

he made against the Bengals he got 4 feet in...some receivers wouldn't even get 2 in that

small area.

 

The dude is money 20 yards and in and on the sidelines and how could anyone dis Eli's

security blanket?

Tru dat, and remember how Eli regressed when he was injured? He has lost a step but he more than makes up for it with his clutch play. If you have a sideline throw he is the man. The whole thing about Toomer being cut or retiring has been on the GMB, and here, for a few years now but Toomer shuts his critics up on the field. Hell I remember when he had no catches for 2 games, I think, 2 or so years ago. The whole board was calling for his head but then again Tiki was getting the same treatment for quite a while also. I think most the GMB wants a player cut every week. :rolleyes:

Fuck that...That catch Toomer had against the Packers in the NFC Championship was unbelieveable. Though Toomer has lost a step. He's still a great possession receiver...

TOTALLY agree. That NFC Champ game catch was phenomenal. And of course he's lost a step due to age, but he can still make those important sideline grabs like nobodys business. He hasnt lost shit in that dept.

His contract is over after this season, isn't it? Then it's a real question.

 

Does he even want to keep going?

 

Even if he does, considering the young talent, how many years do you have interest in his playing? For how much?

 

Will it even be enough for him to accept?

 

If it's just a matter of playing out his contract, by all means keep him. But to sign him to a new one...that's not so easy. And I love Toomer as a player.

The question is are we getting value for our money. And the answer, imo, is yes. Toomer might've lost a step... damned getting old but he's a veteran who comes up big for us.

Give him credit for being a team player... some WRs bitch about not getting the ball.. TO, Meshawn... etc.

A possibility is to resign him for 3-4 more years, that way you spread money out over those three or four years, minimizing cap hits and allowing Toomer to retire when he's ready....of course, it doesn't mean he'd be playing out that contract, though, but keeping in mind that this is Well-Dressed Amani Toomer, maybe that's the way he wants to go out, sign a contract(maybe even his current contract) and finish out the years as a Giant...
