Ocho was willing to turn over a new leaf.</P>


Plax needs to be willing to do the same thing.</P>


We'll see if they continue to go this 'retooled old receiver' route or whether they try and sign someone who's a little younger.</P>

Jets not bringing him back?
Or him not wanting to go back?

or both

He would probably excel on our team with a great QB and system he is familiar with. Plus, he should have his football legs back and be cheap.

Although I'd rather sign a slot guy to move Cruz outside, where I think he is better suited, Plaxico could be a cheap, solid player that is also a system fit.

Leaving aside my feelings for Plaxico, he's not the Plaxico of Super Bowl fame any longer. We have far more pressing needs than a wide receiver.

</P>


when coughlin was feeling the heat before the first SB season, he looked at himself in the mirror and said he needed to do things a little different than he has in the past.</P>


It'll be interesting if Rex has the quality of character to do the same, or are they gonna pretend that this is 100% a roster issue.......</P>


Can't wait to watch the next episode of "Desperate Jets Organization".......</P>

The offense was field able until they tried to expand Sanchez's role in the offense. They should of stuck to ground and pound.

We drafted Jenigan and have yet to see them use him. I suspect Reese hoped he'd be Mario's replacement. We'll see this off-season I guess.

28 targets and 17 catches in 3 years is hardly ample enough of an opportunity to excel.

i'm not saying he's sliced bread , i'm just asking how are we gonna know unless we give him a legit shot.

at least toss him a couple of jump balls in the red zone.

i have flip flopped on the plex situation. in no way would i want plex having a factor in our teams success.NOT AT ALL. say he becomes a fixture on offense bc he's kicking ***, then week 13 rolls around again and he makes another stupid mistake.

their should be no way the giants or coughlin trust him, why should they? at all? because he went to jail? screw it, let another team worry bout him.

steve smith on the other hand...he just got injured, he didn't voluntarily put himself in position to screw the team. plus smith and plex are both possession wr's at this point, although plex would prob be a better red zone threat, smith would be a better 3rd down threat. plus, smith would prob be cheaper than plex too.

i dunno, just seeing how this offense is so much different and 10x better passing and having wr's who want to spend the offseason working with eli...screw plex and his "nah im going to train in miami" shooting himself diva wr.

i mean if we did take him back i'd trust reese and coughlin, but honestly, i wouldnt touch him with a 10 foot pole. would rather re-sign MM or SS if MM is too expensive.

If it was just the accidental self-shooting then the Giants would probably be more apt to consider Plax. But the memory of the dozens of violations of team rules would make Reese &amp; Coughlin hesitate to re-sign Plax. When you have one diva constantly disrupting everyone around him, it becomes counterproductive. That said, the G-men supposedly offered Plax a $1 million+incentives deal for 2011, so we can't rule it out entirely.

I know Eli had asked when he was with the team, but right now, this team is completely under Eli's control, I'm sure Plax would definitely listen to Eli's requests now, and if a deal were to be done, I'm sure it'd be done on that type of basis.

As for Smith, completely agree. Smith, if what he has is just a bone bruise, will be 100% next year at full speed (which I think Plax will be too), and both should be cheap, low risk high reward signings that could be instrumental in the future resignings of our higher priority young studs.

too many guys forgot all the BS with plax.

before he wrecked a perfectly good pair of jogging pants, he was racking up huge team fines for breaking rules, had rumoured numerous sit downs with management.

that's after winning a championship with us.

yeah i agree. if the team does sign him, i trust reese, coughlin, and eli will all have sat down with him and let him know this "ill go to miami in the offseason and dog practices" crap won't fly.

but i infer that ur with me on rather having smith. i'd rather just get him back bc plex will def. be a bigger redzone target, smith moves the chains so well with eli and we already have two big play wr's already. it'd be good to get that possession, always on the same page with eli, double move route king in combination with nicks and cruz.

right now, i'm torn between wanting MM and Smith...if smith is cheaper and MM won't take a fair, competitive, home town discount contract than get smith. but even then, do we have the cap space that MM will prob require??
I could EASILY see smith jumping any chance he can get to come back to us, like a 2-3 year deal worth maybe 6 mil?

come to think of it, i would be surprised if Smith WASN'T the plan for Reese as is right now. we are hurtng on the cap, got players we need to get signed, signing smith will just make everything else easier and also allow jerrigan to learn from smith.

plus MM has no cartilage in his knees, but still im torn. MM really earned my respect this post season. he had the quietest 3 playoff touchdowns in football history lol

I'd keep the idea of both Plax and SS in the back pocket, just in case. You can have both of them very cheap as our # 3 and 4 WRs.

That is if we don't sign MM...he's probably moving on.

gmen0820
02-08-2012, 10:57 PM
Yeah we are on the same page. Eli and Smith had something very special. If Smith is healthy, he should be the guy over Manningham because he is healthier and more consistent and Eli and him have a very good rapport, which I can't say with Manningham.

Manningham did have a nice postseason, but that only hurts his chances of returning because he should demand a higher contract. Now if Manningham takes a discount for the team, he will probably gain all my respect, and I will definitely enjoy seeing this group continue to grow.

But Smith, or even a Plaxico, serves as an alternate cheap, safe (I'm sure the Giants will be sure that there is no risk if either are signed), low risk high reward and system for signing.

I would love to take Cruz out of the slot, but nonetheless, if we do sign Burress by some chance, Cruz has proven his dominance in the slot.
