  • Are you kidding me RE: Michael Bush's Contract

    I guess we really don't know for a fact whether the Giants were secretly making a play for this guy but 4 years for ONLY $14M (https://twitter.com/#!/ProFootballTalk/statuses/182855890620264450) is super cheap for a guy with his skillset in a salary cap era. He would've been a steal and perfect complement to AB for that price

    He can carry it 25 times and withstand a pounding, has well-above average hands catching out of the backfield and is better than Jacobs in short-yardage, in my opinion.

    Really disappointed he isn't in Blue after we let BJ walk. Same guy except younger, lower to the ground, with better hands, and quiet.

    Sigh...

    Since when could the Giants afford 4 years, "only" 14 million for another RB?

        We don't have the money to even give a small contract to a talented RB like Michael Bush.

        Either we go running back in the early rounds of the draft, or Scott will be the backup.

              guy who joins the MB and doesn't know what he's talking about right after the 49er win.... I say bandwagon. Most of the dumb "Giants should do this (insert ridiculous proposition or Giants are idiots) posts" are from bandwagon fans.

                  14M over 4 years is 3.5M a season... too much for us.

                  I'm Commander Shepard, and this is my favorite team in the NFL.

                    You're cool dude...

                    Actually, based on how immature you come off, I'm pretty sure I was a Giants fan when you were just an itch in your daddy's pants.

                    Jacobs signed a 4 yr $25 million dollar deal and was due $5 before the upcoming season. He was clearly in decline and his body was no longer able to cash the checks on the field that his mouth wrote off the field.

                    Bush is being offered 4 yrs $15 million and if they wanted him, they could've made a play for him. Not sure what about my post made you feel the need to attack my level of Giants loyalty based on my signup date...as if Giants fans didn't exist before this message board was created...or the internet for that matter.

                    Add to it that Bradshaw has had more foot surgeries than any human being should ever have, and you're not left with much. But I'm sure you already knew that, seeing how you're the judge/jury/executioner of all things Giants messageboard.

                    Oh, and we now have extra cap room due to the Skins/Cowboys "transgressions," along with a cap that will only increase year after year. But, again...I'm sure you already knew that too. Such a smarty pants-- that's what we all love about you.

                      You may have me mixed up with someone else. I'd ask you to recall the post(s) that I put up that you're referring to, but I just remembered how little I value your opinion and changed my mind.

                        This draft is loaded with talented running backs u could draft one in the 3rd round and get him for 4 years 2.6 million.

                          Two simple words, yet still the only response on here that holds any water.

                          Geez. You girls are way too sensitive.

                          In what alternate universe does your signup date establish some kind of hierarchy or pecking order.

                          Get off your high-horse...we're all rooting for the same team.

                            With all the cuts and whatnot, we are currently 2.3 mil or so under the cap. We still have to sign our rookies. Giving a 30 yr old running back that much money is not good business. Hell, we don't have the cap space to pay him anyway.

                              runningbacks are a dime a dozen.

                              can you say NFL DRAFT?
