  1. The Giants are close to having another pretty good off season given the resources available. Our key free agents were signed (JPP, Robinson), they made the appropriate cuts (sorry Cruz), we picked up a little offensive juice with Marshall, some blocking help with Ellison, a Newhouse replacement in Fluker and thankfully did not cut DRC. My only regret is that they were not more aggressive in finding competition for Flowers and others on the line, but most of the top OL candidates were not in reach from a financial perspective (Okung, Zeitler, Whitworth,etc). Perhaps they could have went a little harder after Whitworth, but he did land a $36M contract at the age of 35. That's a decent sized risk. All that's left now is Hankins. I could go either way on him.
  2. Well they signed John Johnson to a 2-year deal to serve as the backup, so Geno is either camp fodder, an emergency QB or plays we'll enough in the pre-season to elevate to backup status. Not much risk in bringing him to camp.
  3. Great news on JPP. Nice to see them signing a homegrown DL to a long term contract. Hopefully it frees up some cap space in the short-term. I still don't see any way they re-sign Hankins based in his current $10M a year asking price. Geno Smith is probably a camp body. They re-signed last year's back up John Johnson to a 2-year deal. No shot they sign AP. Use any cap space available to sign Keenan Robinson.
  4. In the Giants defense, average OLs received crazy FA contracts this year. 4 years $53m for Okung...yikes. The Giants had cap space, but they used some of it to fill needs and JPP's franchise tag is occupying the other half. They need to get him signed long term to free up more space. I actually like what they did in FA, they just didn't have the money to go crazy like last year. In fact, last year was an anomaly for the Giants. They rarely if ever spend like that in FA. It was the perfect storm of cap space and players that filled very specific needs. Maybe the best FA haul of all time. That will never happen again.
  5. He wasn't the problem at all. It was the tackles Newhouse (gone) and Flowers. Jerry actually had a really good season in pass pro and is average in run blocking. At this point, our entire season rests on the idea that Flowers will improve....
  6. His mechanics are all out of whack, but the dude wins ball games. I'm sure he's a really tough prospect for teams to figure out. At this point I'd say he's a reach in the top half of the first round, but a bargain in the second round and beyond. If the Giants took a flier at 23 I'd be annoyed (we have other needs), but I wouldn't kick a hole in my TV.
  7. There's been some talk, but all pre draft chatter should be discounted. I'd love to get him in the second round, but I think he might actually go in the top half of the first. The kid is a winner.
  8. As a Giants fan it would be even funnier if all three young QBs in the division busted, but it won't happen. Dak and Wentz will be awesome and Cousins will be an above average starter for a while...just on a different team.
  9. The receiving talent in this division is unreal. On the flip side, there's only one top flight RB.
  10. I think the point of collecting all those picks is to package some of them together for more valuable assets (e.g., proven players, higher draft picks) that have less bust potential. For their sake I hope they don't make 22 picks in the next 2 years. The A's, please. Even at their peak the Yanks beat them in the playoffs every year because they simply spent more money on better players. Beane's time is up.
  11. The Skins are going nowhere next year. The other three teams in the division are better. Trade Cousins and reboot the franchise. That's an opposing fans take, interested in what Skins fans think. NIBGoldenchild?
  12. That's how it might be calculated in a vacuum, but in this situation the last line of your post is what happened. Nothing more, nothing less. This is a rare situation where everything was aligned to pull off this type of trade. I understand how people are laughing at the Texans for giving up a second rounder to make up for signing Brock to that insane contract in the first place, but this is a smooth move by the Browns.
  13. They have to spend 97% of the salary cap over a three year period. They can either sign scrubs to lucrative multi year contracts or "buy" some draft picks.
  14. Dude, crappy backup QBs make more than the league minimum. Good backups get multi-million dollar contracts. Fringe starters get $5-10MM easy. There's no doubt the Browns are looking to flip him for more picks. They already have 11 in each of the next two drafts.
