GIANTS:

Biggest name: DL Marcus Thomas, who joked earlier in the week (http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/blog/eye-on-football/19966389/giants-dt-marcus-thomas-pleads-with-madden-13-to-fix-his-profile-photo) that theMadden folks would change his profile photo if he made the team. Whoops (https://twitter.com/MarcusThomas_79/statuses/241511001437130752?tw_i=241511001437130752&tw_e=details&tw_p=tweetembed).Other names: RB D.J.

Now that the Pats have cut all 3 of their receivers Branch , Stallworth and Gaffney don't be surprised to see Douglas as a PAT.

I agree with you. I didn't think he would get cut. He's going to be one helluva returner on whatever team he lands on, and he should land on one. I would have rather had him then Jernigan. Not saying anything bad about JJ, but I think Douglas performed better in his rookie year then JJ did in his.

shaking things up a bit. never thought they'd release Ware, Sash, Jones. I like the confidence it shows in the other guys.

edit: Sash not cut, see next post

Sash was appearantly not cut but rather on the reserve/suspended list. I guess he doesn't count against the 53.

From Mike Garafolo:
"This entry originally had Sash listed in the cuts section above with a designation in brackets he was being put on the reserve/suspended list. But obviously that was too much for people like The Sports Network to comprehend. They erroneously reported that I and Ralph Vacchiano of the Daily News reported Sash was cut (http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/breaking/chi-report-giants-release-sash-dj-ware-20120831,0,6783467.story). So no thanks to those guys for making me, Vacchiano and Sash look bad."

the only name i am really disapointed with on that list is Douglas. I really tought the giants would see the potential in this kid and give him a chance. I think marshall and depalma will land on PS. I dont see Douglas clearing waivers. Now we will get to see him shine for years with another team. He could become a thorn in our sides for a long time to come. Well after JJ is long long long gone Douglas will still be getting it done for whoever picks him up

Douglas >>>>>>>>>> Jernigan....

Very disappointed they chose JJ over DD when it is obvious DD has more heart and skills that can be applied in an NFL game.

The Coaches obviously see a bright future in JJ....I doubt they flipped a coin in this decision..

They both have upside but JJ was drafted by this team because they envision something of him. Not to mention, with all of the depth at receiver, what makes you thing that Douglas was going to see much playing time anyway.
