Personally i wouldnt mind a couple guys to come in and sure up the OL, DT, and maybe a LB pre draft.

OL: Marcus McNeil is still available and getting little intrest outside of SD. maybe get him a 1-2 year deal (which is what hes expected to get) I still however want OL addressed Via the draft but when loosing K-Mac this year and Ohara a veteran presense like McNeil would be nice

DT: Amobi Okoye - been a disapointment thus far in his career. but he cam in young and still has lots of time to improve. I wouldnt call him a bust just not worth a top 10 pick. He did have his best year last year but played on a pretty good D and has been overshaddowed for his hole career. I havent heard anything about him getting any interest so could come cheap. This way we dont have to waste a pick on a DT when he would end up behind Joseph, Austin, and Canty.

I like out LB corp alot. and would like to see the Giants pick up a ILB in the draft like a Mychal Kendricks or Audie Coli. that being said, a one year deal for a guy like London Fletcher who will bring experience and leadership to a young LB Corp would be useful in their development plus he is still playing at a high level (especially bc he turned 73 this year lol)... Gary Bracket would be ok if Fletcher can be had


WHo do you want?

Offensive Line is the one thing I want to see improved at this point. You could have Emmitt freaking Smith in your backfield and he wouldn't be able to do anything with the way our OL run blocks... If we get an O-line worth a damn, our depth at RB can work as starters, and therefore would only need to spend a 6th or 7th round pick on a RB.

DT isn't as much of an issue, since we like to platoon our DE's and sometimes switch out DT entirely for the 4 DE "NASCAR" Package on passing plays. Some DE's like JPP can function effectively on running plays as though they were DT's as well.

MLB isn't as important as we like to run the 4-2-5 nickel package a lot these days. Additionally, Boley can potentially make the transition to the Mike so we can give JWill more playing time. Failing that, we can sign Blackburn off the couch again... that seemed to work last season.

I think they are in great shape right now, dont think they need to bring in anyone else Usually there is a 2nd round of FA after the draft the Giants may be active there. I'm surprised Jacobs left. I thought for sure he wouldnt get a the money he wanted. The Giants Running game needs to be revamped anyway

You mean Jonathan Stewart, lol. I don't see us digging up Jimmy's bones and placing him behind our O-line any time soon lol.</P>

Giants wont do anything but maybe bring back a Tollefson or Blackburn before the draft, theres no money.

Im actually fine with who we got right now.

With OL, I think we'll draft someone but we'll try Diehl as the starting RT and see how that goes

LB: Im totally confident in the guys we have right now, Boley, Kiwi, JWill, Herzlich seem like great young LBs that could really step it up next season

I think we'll draft a mid-late round RB and WR, but we'll probably look OL and DT early

No need to spend any more money on FAs this season, we need to save it for our in house FAs next year

its starting to look like the team doesn't have enough money to buy a newspaper because we're losing guys and not replacing them..

I'd like to see a free agent o-linemen that is known for run blocking. I think we have a great chance to repeat if we can make the running game a threat again.

Resign Osi is the next biggest priority.

A veteran MLB could only help. I think Herzlich may have a shot to be the answer, but I wouldn't want to go to camp wit him as the only viable option. I wasn't a Goff fan before the ACL- definitely not one after the injury.

I think we are looking pretty good right now, next step is the draft, don't need to bring in anyone else

I think we addressed our biggest need already (TE). Think we can stay pat with what we have right now. A younger version of grant would be nice to have and of course an OT, both of which I think they will address in the draft.

hahaha made my day!
I would like us to get an OL. However MLB is a need. I think we can draft a solid back and DT.

What about the thread that you just started entitled "We are Losing our Super Bowl team", in which you claim that we are losing our SB team because of the players we have lost???</P>

pass rushers aren't always the ones who sack the QB but usually force them out of the pocket and someone else gets the sack and Tollefson does that a lot and you should have known that before you posted....

I would trade my firstborn for Dont'a Hightower as opposed to the vet LB, but from FA I think the best fit that makes sense is Cedric Benson - I think because of his age we potentially could get him at a very good price and that would afford us the ability to draft a RB, while having a second veteran with Bradshaw.
