MARIO MANNINGHAM'S DEPARTURE FROM GIANTS NOT LIKELY TO HAVE SERIOUS NEGATIVE IMPACT (http://www.giants101.com/2012/03/18/mario-manninghams-departure-from-new-york-giants-not-likely-to-have-serious-negative-impact/?tw_p=twt)

"The current wide receiver situation is what is and no one in the front office
is thinking within miles of a negative effect. Michigan product, <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Mario Manningham" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/mario-manningham/" rel="tag nofollow">Mario
Manningham</a>, has decided to move on to the west coast and into San Francisco.
Be New York Giant-like and wish him well.


General Manager <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Jerry Reese" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/jerry-reese/" rel="tag nofollow">Jerry
Reese</a> and the Giants coaches were prepared for this and if you really
thought they were surprised, then you may not know this franchise. They don’t
wait until March or April and the parting of ways to figure out the next move.
Plan A, Plan B and a Plan C had already been drawn up and set to go into effect
if deemed necessary. There’s still over a month left before the 2012 NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) Draft and
the continuance of Free Agency. Teams will also proceed with their roster cuts
through August.</p>


Currently on the <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with New York Giants" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/new-york-giants/" rel="tag nofollow">New York
Giants</a> roster are: <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Hakeem Nicks" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/hakeem-nicks/" rel="tag nofollow">Hakeem
Nicks</a>, <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Victor Cruz" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/victor-cruz/" rel="tag nofollow">Victor
Cruz</a>, <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Domenik Hixon" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/domenik-hixon/" rel="tag nofollow">Domenik
Hixon</a>, Jerrel Jernigan, Ramses Barden, and Practice Squad players Isaiah
Stanback and Dan DePalma. Missing are, of course, Manningham and two remaining
UFA, <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Devin Thomas" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/devin-thomas/" rel="tag nofollow">Devin
Thomas</a> and <a class="st_tag internal_tag" title="Posts tagged with Michael Clayton" href="http://www.giants101.com/tag/michael-clayton/" rel="tag nofollow">Michael
Clayton</a>. Many will say that this isn’t threatening. Many made that same
statement last season while also forgetting that there’s always something that
the front office knows that the fan base doesn’t.</p>


This receiving corps is dependent not only on themselves, their talent and
their coaching, but on their quarterback. At this point a gentle, yet quite
important reminder will be tossed directly at you. Get open. This quote was
taken from an interview that Eli Manning had during the regular season (on the
NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) Network)
with former NFL (http://www.giants101.com/tag/nfl/) quarterback,
Kurt Warner. Warner led the questioning back into Manning’s mistake-riddled 2010
season (shocker) and brought up the Giants Offensive Captain’s
“inconsistencies.” An excerpt on #10’s answer:</p>
<blockquote>


“…He’s (receivers) doing the wrong thing, but I can still throw it in
there. And THAT’S where interceptions come from. I told my receivers: If you
make a mistake, you’re not getting the ball, so learn what to do. You’ll get
more catches. We give you the options to get open. If you do something I’m not
expecting, I’m not gonna throw it to you…”</p></blockquote>


There’s a pretty simple philosophy coming from a major cog in the offensive
machine. Everything happens for a reason. Cruz surpassed Manningham for a
reason. #82 was let free in search of a #1 receiver position for a reason. Reese
has his reasons and he knew them back during the regular season…guaranteed.</p>


One last reminder of a time when a record-holding running back retired and
the New York Football (http://www.giants101.com/tag/football/)
Giants did nothing in the way of big name in free agency or high round in the
draft to replace him. Remember?"</p>

Call me crazy, I'm just not concerned about losing Mario. Yes he had a great playoff run but we seem to forget all the issues we had over the last few years. All the bad routes that led to int's and that infamous manning "wtf?" look. We had cruz come in and show him how its done. Maybe our offense was to complicated for him, maybe he'll thrive somewhere else. We can find someone who can do what he did and cruz proves we can find better that Mario Manningham.

I think there are very few receivers in the league who could make the top 5 or 6 plays Manningham made this season. At the same time, I think there are plenty receivers that can have the same production or better as the 3rd receiver in an offense featuring Nicks, Cruz, and Eli.

Thanks Roanoke. Thanks Mario for the memories, but not concerned either. Already looking forward to the competition on this with what we have in-house even before the draft. Still pulling for Hixon and hoping we will see the gazelle doing some great things again.

it's a tough loss ... playmakers don't grow on trees ... some spin coming from the Giants, but certainly the handwriting was on the wall ... we simply could not justify paying him big $$ with Nicks and Cruz</P>


and the fun part is ... somebody else will now have to emerge in a similar role that MM hadand i feel pretty confident that will happen</P>

you're not crazy at all.</P>


he contributed to our success, but i have to say alot of what i saw with MM i really didn't like.</P>


and given what other WRs have been getting this season in FA, the market spoke pretty loud and clear with a 2 year deal.</P>

Not concerned. Once we get our running game back on track, the PA will open up more frequently, and we'll watch another reciever blossom for us.

The only thing that concerns me is who will be the next #3 to stand up.

So far I haven't seen a thing from Barden and Jernigan to make me excited by either of those and Hixon is one torn ACL away from wearing a peg leg.

I don't see any negative impact at all.

I have the feeling that Manngham just made a lateral move and nothing is going to change for him with his role on the team except his paycheck will be a little fatter. Leaving a SB winning team with just about all of the ingredients in place to be a top contender again I have to question Mario's decision,l I think he should have waited one more season and then if he's that good he would have gotten the bucks..water under the bridge now....

It's not like he left us to go play in Cleveland! He went to a good team with a good solid D, good running game, and good coaching!

He should do well out their along side Moss and Davis! That's a lot of deep threats on the field to go along with a pretty good receiving running back!

I think we will be fine. I can totally see Bennett becoming a player we can depend on plus whoever is catching balls from Eli automatically becomes better.

By the way, it's been roughly two years since I posted on the boards. It's good to be back (y)

I still think Jernigan has potential. Sure he wasn't flashy in 2011, but then again JPP didn't do much in 2010 either. Jernigan will also have the benefit of a full off-season and pre-season, which he didn't in his lockout-affected rookie year.
