He said that's (safety) not your position and I hope they play you there. NFL Net.

Julian can play just about any position on the field and is underrated played slot cornerback. Matthew Slater is the WR that plays safety. But Edelman has done some good things at defensive back this season, without a doubt. </P>

I'm glad he's calling Edelman out, show him that he needs to go back to WR

There's no reason to do this. It doesn't give us any advantage and it will just fire up the Patriots.

It's like if Tom Brady said Kiwanuka should move back to DE because that's his true position. Kiwanuka would just play twice as hard in the big game.

Manningham should have kept it to himself.

I don't mind Giants publicly claiming they want to be matched up on Edelman, but I think Mario is not the WR on the Giants to do so.

Really? That's going to fire them up huh? The fact that it's the Superbowl isn't enough? Give me a break.

I'm sure you mean no harm but the pic of Mrs Mara with the word beast written across it comes off a little rough.

It's a colloquial description of strength and endearing confidence, not an insult of monstrosity. No reason it should be misconstrued, especially on a Giants forum.

lol. I could just see mario running the wrong route and the ball getting picked by none other than Mr. Edelman himself. Of course then I'd expert Eli to torch him the rest of the game.

but seriously dude, keep your pie hole shut.

oh really? yea man i can really see edelman saying "man, i was planning on playing sort of okay for this big game, but now that manningham insulted me....im going all out now balls to the wall!!!"

this is the dumbest logic ive ever heard. every player is gonna give it 100,000 % no matter what. trash talking doesnt add a damn thing to the game. these kinda posts are ridiculous.

That's not "calling him out." I'd hope to put him in the defensive backfield too if I were a receiver.

He wouldn't face him anyway, Cruz would as its my understanding that Edleman only plays in the slot.

I bet the Pats are gonna try to bait Eli to pick on Edelman so they can try to get a turnover. I wouldn't be surprised if Belichick has something of that sort drawn up.

Again, sorry for paraphrasing. Basically, he said he wanted him on the field so he could take him to school. I guess you had to see the video to get the gist of what he said.
Not that I have a problem with what he said, as long as he backs it up.

I honestly think it is a decoy tactic....first it is going to make Edelman focus more on Manningham and not the other receivers and the other secondary defenders may feel there will be less focus on them...then we tear 'em a new ***. So expect nothing out of Manningham until near the end when Edelman starts honoring the rest of the receivers and then Manningham will have an opportunity.

So where were the Jets, Cowboys, Falcons, Packers and 49ers fuel used to drive them over the top? The "trash talking" over those games were probably worse.

Julian Edelman is a smart, consistent and steady football player who's a jack of all trades and can do it all .. whether it be running routes, taking hand offs, receiving or fielding kicks, making tackles or covering receivers down field... he can do it all. I bet if we do put him on Manningham then he would do a good job covering him. Besides, Edelman is a reciever himself so he is probably familiar without alot of routes and he is just as quick and knows about cutting in and out of breaks.

Husky
01-29-2012, 09:41 AM
He didn't do so well against Bolden, last week. BB likes playing people out of position but he's no match covering top receivers. Every analyst said they would have thrown his way all day.

I don't think the trash talk is a huge motivating factor, But , to me, it's so Jet-like. And that's not something I hope the Giants want to be.

Is there really any reason to hit on a guys pride so he plays the game of his life.I mean Edelman could easily say hey Mario who the F are u to say anything didnt u get your job taken this season.

You can't see the difference in what Manningham said and what (and maybe more-so how) Brady said? Not to mention the fact that it's a QB saying it. It seems to rub in a bit more when the QB is talking trash for some reason.

I think MM should shut up and not call anyone out. He should concentrate on catching passes because he's dropped quite a few in his career.

There are a few differences:

-Brady is a QB as you said, and he was talking about offense vs. defense in general

-Brady was responding to Burress' prediction

-Manningham directly called out a single player


I don't know which is worse, but neither is a smart move.

Whether or not is was a smart thing to say is open to interpretation and personal preference. But to say "called out" is just not even close. What they said about Revis before the jets game was closer to "calling out."
