P.S. In his career he averages 136 yards per game and had only one 300+ yard game in his career
We move Marshall for all the right reasons, miss out on ole' manning.. then when they dont overpay a backup qb : it's the last straw and jokers are protesting outside the stadium ! All brainwashed by the media. There's no pressure from within the walls of the office, it's all from the uneducated fanbase, and that's why a movement was made to inform the fans of what's going on, because all they had to go off of was the media.
Please read what I wrote:
Regarding defense, the Giants defense was 27th and the Patriots defense was 31st in yards allowed. In points allowed the Giants were 25th.
Regarding offense, the Giants were the WORST rushing team in the league. That's the fewest rushing yards in the entire NFL for clarity.
Both the Giants and Patriots are in the top 5 for passing yards.
Don't let the facts get in your way...
I think its funny how some posters project the draft without taking into consideration draft grades. First of all, QB's are almost always drafted ahead of their grade. Tannehill will not be available with the 8th or 9th pick in the 2nd rd. He may even go top 10 to the Redskins (as per some predictions). Allen is unlikely to get out of the 1st rd. This is a copycat league and teams have seen the Pats use their TE's very effectively.
I'm hoping the FO fills the hole at RT/RG though FA and then draft the highest rated defensive player with their 1st pick, be it CB, DE/OLB.
I would even be on board with Trent Richardson if he drops. He wore the same uniform as Ingram, but that's where the similarity ends. He's a much more explosive RB.
Insanity is the pursuit of a delusion at all cost. Sanity is the pursuit of reality at all cost.
1st-Kendall Wright....2nd-Dwayne Allen or Colby Fleener
We need playmakers on offense. Marshall is the only threat we currently have, adding these 2 guys would go a long ways toward actually scoring points. We just better not take Tannehill in the 1st like I've seen a lot of fans calling for. Having watched a ton of Big 12 games I have to wonder if the fans who want Tannehill have actually seen him play. The guys an athlete, not an NFL QB. Doesn't have the accuracy, timing or anticipation.
We now have two excellent offensive coaches, with the ideal oppurtunity to select a young QB, to devolop and tutor into a system, where he has an excellent oppurtunity to become our franchise QB.
If Matt Flynn can become an NFL starting QB, just think what a 21 yr old Brock Osweiler could become with 2-3 years under both Philbin & Sherman.
We have got to think long term and take advantage of why we hired Philbin & Sherman.
I love the idea of drafting, Riley Reiff or WR, then TE in 2nd, but again we are looking short term. Lets get our future franchise QB now!
Identify the 4 positions of strength in the draft, then double up on each........ if possible
Tailor Free Agency accordingly, so that your need is these 4 strengths
2014 draft - RB - WR - OT - OG
1-Carlos Hyde RB Ohio St.
2-Marcus Martin OG/C USC
3-Donte Moncrief WR Mississippi
4-David Yankey OG Stanford
5-Seantrel Henderson OT Miami
6-Laurent Duvernay-Tardif OT McGill
7-Jeff Janis WR Saginaw Valley St.
Coyle agrees with the theory that the struggling 7-7 Giants caught lightning in a bottle late in the season with their dramatic victories over the Jets and Dallas Cowboys.
“That’s the beauty of the NFL. I think that’s what we were talking about with the Bengals when we were 7-7 at the end of the season,” he said. “It doesn’t matter what your record is when you get into the playoffs. You’re one of 12 teams and everybody has an equal chance.
“The Giants were easily on the verge of slipping out of the playoff picture but they’re a hot team. Everybody talks about getting hot, and they’re a hot team. They’re playing better on both sides of the ball. The defense is playing better, the kicking game is making plays, and the offense is clicking.”
