Would easily be the best sleeper pick up of 2012.

One word: solid. That's it when it comes to BGE, he will follow his blocks and he very disciplined to his gap responsibilities.

He won't give you incredible production, and I wouldn't call him a home run threat, but he can handle anything and everything else.

He runs hard,doesn't fumble,lower $$, & could have a more productive career on another team.....I'm all for it...

I'd rather they didn't spend money on a RB through FA. Go through the draft, save, and use the money to lock up some of our guys.

It might make more sense if we didn't have or were looking to replace Bradshaw.

Yeah, an unspectacular technically sound runner doesn't give you any kind of lateral or home run ability. Can easily find a back like that Day 3 in the draft

Either Brandon Jacobs returns, we draft a RB, or both happen. I'm not seeing us picking up a FA RB.

You know what your getting with a The Law Firm and he is exactly what we need. We don't need spectacular. We don't need super fast feet that can dance around in the backfield and change directions on a dime. We need someone to move the chains and sniff out the endzone.

Sometimes what you need is better than what you want.

The biggest selling point of BGE is that he has never fumbled in NFL.

He is a solid reliable player that is reserved and gets his team fired up without causing a commotion. He doesn't have nonsense penalties and is a class act.

Then again I already miss Brandon Jacobs telling Rex Ryan to "shut up fat boy" and referring to him as a "disrespectful bastid." Bring BJ back just for that.

I would like ben jarvis or tolbert. Either would be a great pickup

Strahan4gov

This move would definitely solidify things where we need it badly still - in the trenches. If hes as stoic a runner/blocker and as consistent as they say then i'm all for it.

With our passing game I don't feel like we need a "home run" threat, just someone who can get a 3rd and one and can get those blocks.

I think Reese sis waiting for Jacobs to come back, when he realizes he isn't as desirable as he thinks. Don't get me wrong, I love the guy, and hated to see him test the waters. But I think Reese wants him back, but at his terms, and not jacobs. Jacobs should retire a Giant, and I still say he has plenty of juice left. He just has to remember North, south, wax on wax off.

Yeah, an unspectacular technically sound runner doesn't give you any kind of lateral or home run ability. Can easily find a back like that Day 3 in the draft I agree. People act like BJGE is gonna be super cheap or something.. Hes not.. He won't be super expensive either, but he isn't gonna sign a super cheap deal either.. I'd rather take a chance on a Kahill Bell or something for cheap, or as u said, go for a back in the draft.. I think BJGE will sign for more then hes worth...

I notice alot of Giants fans on here saying i rather draft a rb than sign a veteran seriously its the Giants we are talking about. We dont play our rookies alot so if we drafted the best back its not as if they would see a significant amount of time. Look at Darell Scott all last year we wanted him to play and when he did nothing really good came out of it. So we should look into a veteran for now untill we see what a rookie can show us.

JesseJames
03-17-2012, 06:08 PM
with BJ gone I think we do need another back but since we haven't seen anything positive from Scott since last preseason I'm not comfortable passing on guys we know can do the job while we wait for one we hope will be able to. .Scott seems to have all the credentials but the coaches are obviously not seeing what they want to see..

BlueBlooded1979
03-17-2012, 06:49 PM
Look at the NFL now and look at this team. As long as he can pass protect and catch a little out of the backfield he is a good pickup.

If he steals 10 carries a game from AB it might keep AB healthy.

Not really much of an upgrade over DJ Ware. It would be kind of a pointless signing.

I really don't think he's in the Giants' price range,

radar-ray

not going to be cheaper than BJ. Rather have BJ at and draft an RB. DJW mediocre at best. Looking forward to seeing what Scott and Brown can do.

JJC7301
03-17-2012, 10:39 PM
Would much rather have BJ back. He'll wind up coming back for less money.

I'm not a Law Firm fan. He's not a bad player and I love the fact that he's never fumbled, but I just think he's a mediocre RB.

nhpgiantsfan
03-17-2012, 11:38 PM
I don't know if we can afford him but he is exactly the type of back that we need. Smeone to compliment AB, who let's face it probably won play all16. He can block, he holds onto the ball, and will move the chains. But honestly, I don't see how we could afford him.

Yeah, the Giants can't afford 2 million a year for Jacobs, but they'll be signing the Law Firm.

FishinTheSalt
03-18-2012, 01:42 PM
please no, not because of his talent, I couldn't stand the announcers drooling over saying his name every minute when they were handing them the SB. If he starts going by Ben Ellis then maybe.

Oddly enough [:)]

You know, we post stuff without knowing 10% of everything that goes into making a decision. We tend to look at the here and now with a glimpse of the near term. But to build a team, with all of the various balls that need to be kept in the air, there's a lot more to it.

In the case of the GIANTS, I think it's safe to say they look forward to see what moves make the best fit for continuity in two or three years. They know they have to develop draft picks and aren't as fixated on what can they do for us on day one.

It doesn't always work as in the case of Sinorice Moss and, maybe, Ramses Barden. But it works more often than not.

They are not going to replace Jacobs with a rookie. Coughlin doesn't trust rookie running backs. Notice how Scott barely got on the field this year and when he did he fumbled and TC said in the post game that he made a mistake putting him out there. Then Scott didn't sniff the field the rest of the season. Maybe Scott will get a chance to show himself this summer but TC wants guys who can pass protect and hold onto the ball. BJGE is the perfect guy for Coughlin. They should let Ware go, and sign BJGE, and work Scott in also. Kind of like Earth, Wind, and Fire all over again. That is if they can afford him...
