      Thought i heard yesterday that the injury was not as bad as they first thought and that he might only miss 2/3 weeks.
      Football has been very, very good to us.
      After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
      But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

      # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

      1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
      2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
      3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
      4-New York Giants!!!
      5-NE
      Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

        With that said... (and i know i will get crucified for even thinking this) if we have one more setback at the WR position we may have to consider bringing him in for the vet min under a 10/12 game contract. If its understood that he keeps him mouth shut and does his job and he wont be the #1 WR then maybe. but i think with what he did burning us like that (twice) i highly doubt the Giants ORG would even consider making that phone call no matter how dire the need at WR is.

            Plax just made an appearance on First Take. He basically was complaining (whining, although somewhat justifiable) about how teams are making the decision not to give him a chance bc of off field past issues, not what he can do on the field.

            He made the point that last season, was all based on talent, and that this season he's "fully back". Sounded like sour grapes from Plax, all the while self promoting and saying he could outplay a lot of starters.

            What a fall from grace. To SB Champ, multi yr contract with guaranteed money to begging for a shot on First Take...

            and fwiw, I wouldnt be surprised if it was politics thats keeping him off a roster, I'd bet he probably would look much better than he did last year.
            The guy is fighting for a chance to do the only thing he's ever been good at. I can understand his frustration and desperation.
            Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

              Santonio is out for the season, but Ryan said yesterday that they weren't going to go in the Plax direction . . . .

                Im not saying right now. Im saying if this thing with Nicks drags on and it turns out to be something a lot more serious then what they are saying right now and he is maybe gone for the season or has to be put on that short term IR and we continue to have issues with RR and JJ stepping up and Barden not getting seperation... and we get 4 or 5 more games down the road with say 3 more losses... Then what will be the FOs answer to this problem. Im not saying the answer is number 17. But what would we do? If we already have trouble running and we have no one to throw to do we just tank the season?? I know i am getting way ahead of myself and I trust in the judgement of the FO. They have come through in the past with trusting in the young talent they had and it panned out. Hopefully it will with Barden, JJ and RR as well

                  There has to be a reason why Plaxico isn't playing somewhere. He came here for an interview and, if I recall correctly, said later on that he was never serious about coming here. He took the guarantee offered by the Jets which made the most sense in his situation. He didn't provide much to the Jets and was cut. Now they are hurting for a receiver and they still don't want him back as is the case with 31 other teams.

                    The Jets never cut him, his contract expired. He was actually fairly productive, scoring 8 touchdowns for them (3 came in one game). He did have a pretty low ypg though.

                      Are we splitting hairs as to "cut" or "not re-signed"? He's a player in decline at best. The last team he played for NEEDS at WR and they've declined. Everyone knows he hates TC and didn't want to play here because he was the HC, preferring to go to Camp Rex.

                      As far as 8 TDs in 16 games is concerned, that's not a lot to look forward to when you really need a play maker. In the interests of full disclosure, I really don't like Plaxico.
