      lol looks like we're taking all their scrubs...I hope they change it around here though, I'd image he'd come cheap for the purpose of competing with Jernigan/Hixon/Barden or for depth

        As much as he was a scrub there, he might not be here

          I can see why They want to come to a great team but why take all their rejects.

            Ogletree would not be a bad pick-up and could excell here as well...again this hurts Dallas too

            I think I would prefer Smith if he is healthy...I expect the Giants will let Smith sweat it out and visits like this will cause him and his agent to come to sensible terms more quickly...we are all set honestly, with the exception of siging Goff...we don't HAVE to bring anyone else...the leverage is all ours.

              I agree. If this team is willing to take a chance on Hixon one year removed from injury, I don't see why they wouldn't give Smith a shot. Seems like a low risk high reward situation.

                  Hmm, this guy actually showed some promise last year. Wouldn't mind seeing him on the team.

                    Ogletree is a good depth receiver that can make some big tough catches and take big hits.

                    He didn't get a lot of opportunities here and reports were that he just wasn't a very hard worker after he made an impact in 2009.

                    But he's quick, good hand-eye coordination and body control. He's all around a good receiving prospect.

                      When we talk about good players everyone is like "Are you kidding me? We can't afford him salary cap, etc..." then when we talk about mediocre ones everyone is like "We don't need those scrubs..."

                      You guys do realize that we need to fill a roster with someone, right?

                        over the years alot of things have changed. We used to be mainly a running team then went to passing. Always had Gread D and that changed for awhile now its coming back strong.




                        the one constant however is the Giants FO office and Scouts have always been not good but GREAT evaluators of TALENT. they see things in Guys other teams just dont see. They take guys off the scrap heap or the couch and turn them into NFL Stars. guys that were not even drafted in some cases.




                        i mean look at some of the guys we took chances on because someone in FO or a Talent Scout said give this guy a try.




                        JPP, Cruz, pulling Blackburn back off his couch to come up big for us. Canty did nothing really in Dallas and shined this season (still not worth his contract though) look at guys like Boss, Ballard and pascoe. who knew anything about them prior to them coming here?? You also have other projects that could pan out like Marvin Austin, Mark Herzlich. We are bringing back Chad Jones after all he has been through cause they feel the kid will pan out. Most teams would have prob cut ties with him by now. I know it was a terrible thing what happened to him, but the NFL is a cut throat business. We brought in BJ, AB, Ward after Tiki left we were like who are these guys and how are they going to replace his production. Same with shockey leaving. The giants have a knack for finding diamonds in the ROUGH.




                        Maybe it could be that way with this so called REJECT WR from Dallas. who knows




                        Lets see if the even sign him first

                        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!!!

                          Best Ogletree highlight I can think of-- in 2009 against the Saints.

                          (starts at about the 2:20 mark)

                            Yep. Couldnt find a whole lot of highlights on Bennett. best i could find was a TD vs seahawks in 08, lol.




                            Well you guys in dallas will have to wait till next season for those 2 players highlight Reels once Eli starts throwing to them.




                            We will see. I know i am a giants homer and pointed to alot of guys that blossomed and became stars but not everyone works out. we have alot of guys that we took chances on that have not panned out as well.




                            Sinorce Moss, Goff so far. was getting better and looked like he finally turned the corner until season ending injury in preseason. Beckum for the most part. few good plays but not much. 1 good td in reg season game vs GB. Barden has been a disapointment and injury prone. Clint Sintum was a LB we drafted we were high on that didnt amount to much and was out all of last season with injury. Ward our 3rd back.. decent but dont think he has potential to be great. Hixon showed flashes of being the next Devin Hester or Djax on KOs and Punt returns. I dont have to tell you he did it against you in some key games. But is very injury prone.




                            So who knows what will happen really with Bennett and if we sign this Ogletree... have to wait and see

                            Football has been very, very good to us.

                              This is not true...Cowboy fans would send him here for a happy meal. All the Cowboy fans I know hate him and the fact they lost Robinson has them cringing because of the thought of Ogletree.

                              I want no part of this guy.
