What the fuck is it with playmakers and the Giants?


Recommended Posts

Cruz, Nicks, Smith, Randle, Shockey, OBJ, Boss, Bradshaw, Jacobs (although it was his style), Wilson, Engram, Shepard, Barkley.

When's the last time we have ever had one of the skill positions have a player who retired heatedly? Or atleast somewhat healthy? Who enjoyed a full type of career with the Giants?

Tiki? Toomer? Were they the last two who had fairly full careers with the Giants and didnt end up crippled?

Like fuck me, why can't we ever have a play maker who can just stick with this team? Who doesn't end up on IR or ride be injured a decent portion of his career?

Tiki or Toomer, yes. But Tiki had a bad knee injury early on. Dude was an absolute burner before the injury, and had to relearn how to play running back after he lost the extra gear.

I think Barkley can learn how to do it. Even if he doesn't lose a gear, and they usually don't these days when it's an ACL, he will benefit from learning to pick and choose his moments carefully.

its football not golf

Yeahbut the Giants haven't had a skill player for longer than 5 years lol

It's a physical sport but the last time we've had a skill guy retire after a fairly long career was Tiki lol

Teams have RBs and WRs that last year's in the NFL.

We're lucky to get three out of a guy.

Not many Giants on the roster who have been here longer than five years, still counting their weeks.  Average length of a player's career in the NFL is a little over three years.  Not many teams have players who have ten plus year careers with one team.
