Again you're having trouble comprehending. Are you going to get a nice player in the 4th spot? I should hope so. Will that player turn your franchise around, probably not.
In regards to cap space, the Birds always have more cap space than the Giants and most other teams. What has it gotten them?
Will guys return from injury? Sure they will. But you mentioned a few times that injured Giants will never be the same. What makes you think all of the Bird's injured players will return to top form?
Lets see if you can respond without hiding behind insults and smilie faces.
We'll get more than a 'nice" player with the 4th pick, your transparent attempts to downplay this years draft is nothing but wishful thinking.
Having an abundance of cap space (projected $30M or so under) will allow them to pursue any proven player(s) on the market they think will upgrade the roster, a luxury jersey won't have despite undeniably needing proven upgrades at several positions and is facing only cuts and/ resturcturings to even get under the cap, but just like the draft, picking the right players who fit the new regime's system is key.
Our 3 most significant injuries: Peter's will be 18 months removed from his injury at the start of camp, Kelce 11, DJax injury was to his upper body not knee or foot and none of those players could even remotely be labeled chronically injury-prone.
On the other hand Nicks is headed for his 6th leg/foot surgery in 5 years (this time the knee) and he, Tuck, Bradshaw and KP are all undeniable "chronically injury-prone", which of those 4 players can you realisticly count on to play a full season going forward?
