Can't wait to see the posts that he's really build for the 3-4 defense and didn't get a fair shot here.

I think Sintims injuries made it easy for the Giants to cut him rather than have to admit they made a mistake when they drafted him....

seeing a player with good up side and talant in the draft and taking a chance on him is NOT a mistake. Every draft pick is a gamble to some degree.

Sintim for whatver reason, which include injury, just hasnt cut it.

It didn't help that the guy went to a 4-3 team either. Oh well this experiment is over finally.

Kiwi goes from DE to LB and back and forth..
No excuse for Sintim. The injury thing is legit of course but to pigeon hole a guy to just a 4-3/3-4 player. If thats the case then he isnt all that good anyway.

Not ragging on you its just my opinion. All of these NFL players are very talented what separates them is drive and desire to be the best.

I think the patience they exhibit with "developing players" is huge. Would Tynes and Weatheford have survived elsewhere?

Not really a fair comparison considering Kiwi can play both DE and LB in our 4-3 defense(which is extremely rare) where Sintim could play neither LB nor DE in our system. Kiwi was a defensive end in college(4-3) where Sintim was an outside linebacker in a 3-4, so one would expect that Kiwi would adapt more easily than Sintim would/did.

my point is these guys if they have enough drive and desire should be able to adapt. If he cant adapt to a 4-3 from a 3-4 then he wasn't really all that good anyway IMO.

He was wasted here...Loved him coming out of the draft but his career would have been better 10fold if he was drafted by a 3-4 team.

Hope he catches on with another team.

I respectfully disagree, anybody who saw Sintim play could see he simply wasn't cut out for the defense we play, actually I thought he would have had a better career as a pass rusher because his coverage skills weren't too good and he didn't have the speed..

We could probably point to a few more players like Blackburn for example. I may have confused Weatherford's start here with Dodge but I thought I recalled Weatherford as the guy getting ALL of TC's attention when he didn't punt out of bounds to the Eagles.

I think they give every player every opportunity. This year is Barden's year to sink or swim, as an example. Many of us would have cut him by now.

That would be Dodge... The Giants may have huge patience with "developing" players, but Dodge was a huge exception with a one and done rookie season. When a veteran player like Weatherford enters camp, wants to make the team, delivers good directional punts that TC is looking for, puts up decent hang-time for the punt coverage, etc... It was a no-brainer for the Giants last preseason. With Sintim, it looks like the patience bank has run out for him.

Pretty much how I feel on the situation. Odds are that it's too late for him now to do anything though. Good luck to him with whatever he tries next.

Barden's career so far has always been tough playing behind the high caliber WRs Nicks, Manningham, and then Cruz last year. Now with 2nd-Rd draft pick Ruben Randle and Hixon in the mix minus Manningham, the competition level to see the football field is still very high. I almost can't blame Barden for that, but he needs to show why he should be on the field over some of the other WRs mentioned.

You only carry one and there is no place to hide a second on the roster. A guy like Boothe or Blackburn can be parked down the depth chart while they develop. Punter, no such luxury, you have to be at the top of your game. I would tell you that in that context, the Giants were very patient (as is their style) in waiting a full year for Dodge who was pretty much inconsistent or poor all year with an occasional boomer 15 feet high and 70 yards long.

Don't forget, Blackburn was actually let go last season and teaching before the Giants signed him back later in the season because no other team was even thinking about signing him the whole time. Also, the Giants were going to give Dodge another season until Weatherford beat him out at the end while they were testing both punters during all of preseason last year. I think we're all glad Weatherford won that one punter's spot.

No, Barden is a 3rd round pick, not 2nd... though he does compete with Sinorice for worst production out of any Jerry Reese pick, period.

Obviously trust Reese with his draft picks but we havnt drafted a LB high in a real long time and he uses the 12 or 13th pick in the second round to finally draft a linebacker but he drafts Sintim a 34 outside linebacker he really just didnt fit in our system. I dont get y he would draft him.
