  • Everyone is being overpaid!

    This is insane. Garcone and VJ robbed their new teams. This is bad for the NFL. Means we will only have to pay the same price when it's time to re-sign Cruz, Nicks, JPP, etc..

    Re: Everyone is being overpaid!

    Not good
    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!!!

      It's nothing new. It happens every year.
      Garçon's contract is a bit surprising but VJax's isn't.

        Overpaying for players builds fan excitment but when has it built a SB team?

        Finding "big name" talent before it is big name talent is what wins with a salery cap

            I sense a salsa dance somewhere in that.

            I also gotta give props to Ballard, Hynoski, Pascoe, etc to name a few...

                Plaxico Burress' contract seemed pretty big at the time (5 yrs/$25 mil) and he was instrumental in the Giants' XLII victory.

                  Snyder, is a moron. His overpaying has got the Skins nowhere, but has helped screwup the NFL player compensation standards. MM is loving these signings!!!

                    You should read the piece written by Mike Lombardi a couple days ago. Discusses how some top tier free agents get big money right away in free agency because their agents know just when to strike. Then there's a calm period when bargains are made.

                      No, we got Plax on the cheap. He didn't have the market that he thought he would have and we swept in and got a good deal.

                        Snyder overpays for everything. Has always tried to buy a
                        Winner with " names".

                          Ah, nevermind then. I just remember him being the top FA WR that year. I guess Jerry Porter was the hideously overpaid one.

                            Yeah he's nuts. The Eagles effectively sabotaged them by offering up McNabb. And how about the Haynesworth signing? Jesus.
                            It's no wonder they're the eternal bottom feeders in the division.


                            I do think they have a chance to do something with RGIII though, but knowing them they'll do their best to screw it up.

                              That was a huge FA year for us. Plaxico, Pierce, and McKenzie. No SB 42 without those 3.
