If you had Cullen Gillaspia in your final 53, you lie!


 
Some of these writers are really locked in, I read one yesterday that predicted them carrying both.   I forget who it was, I bet they had a source inside or something.

Or a good eye, I hadn't noticed that Gillaspia is the punt protector. Important role.

Yeah some Giants pundits had this Gillaspia guy pegged as a 52 man surprise.

I never really paid attention, but if he can help the team why not? Better than carrying a Nate Ebner or something.

Look, guys the jokes write themselves:

- The giants just traded for Ravens G Ben Bredeson and Bengals C Billy Price.

   o Bredeson is a G who the Ravens ditched in favor of a rookie 3rd rounder and Zeitler, the giants best OL over the last two years, who the Ravens signed for a cheap cap hit of only $4m. In other words, the Ravens now have Kevin Zeitler, a proven reliable OL, and the Giants took the backup lineman instead.

   o Price couldn’t even make the Bengals starting lineup last year on a terrible Bengals offensive line that was ranked among the NFL’s worst in 2020.

- Earlier this offseason, instead of retaining Zeitler, the Giants retained 33 year old OT Nate Solder (who’s been a disaster for this team ever since joining in 2018, and didn’t play later year) arguing that he’s a quality backup behind tackle behind Andrew Thomas and Matt Peart, and isn’t the starter. Subsequently, Peart performed so poorly this offseason that Solder is now the starting RT on this team. 

- Instead of trying to retain Zeitler for $4M, Gettleman brought in the following lineman whose cap value exceeds $4M:

Zach Fulton

Harrison

Looney

Wiggins

Larsen

Each of these five lineman are now off the team. Two retired, and three were cut.

- Meanwhile, Gettleman didn’t draft an OL arguing that he had confidence in the guys who were already here.

- Meanwhile Andrew Thomas, the teams #4 pick last year, has looked terrible all pre-season.

- Also also, to a lesser extent, Will Hernandez has been moved to RG, a position he's never played at any point in his career.

This is not even a concern, just curious. What was the deal with Clement? I thought he outperformed Brightwell throughout pre-season, and also looked darned good at times, many times better than Booker.

 

Clement has ball control issues. I picked up last game that he was carrying the ball very loosely. 

I do not agree that Clement outperformed Brightwell. Clement is a stronger pure runner, imo, but Brightwell has receiving skills, looked good as a blocker (I read, I didn't personally notice), and adds more on special teams.

Plus Clement is Eagles scum.

I'm not worried about Booker. He looks like a preseason experienced pro running back to me. I haven't seen him play much though.
