  • Whatever happened to THIS Osi?

    [link]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TV9atmvz9eM[/link]

    I forgot how much of a beast he used too be! What happened to this run defense he showed in that video? Did it disappear with age? that would make no sense

    does osi have anything left in the tank to play at this high of a level ever again?

    Re: Whatever happened to THIS Osi?

    the thing is, is how does that osi compare to the JPP we have right now?

    I believe Osi can continually be one of the best pass rushing specialists in the league. if he could only understand the situation a little better, he could turn in 3 or 4 or maybe even more years of top line play of what is asked of him.

    i dont know why osi has his ups and downs vs the run. maybe its his outlook on his situation. he must know sacks, FF, pressures is whats garnishing big paydays, and we all know thats his #1 goal, so maybe he's placing his emphasis and attention on that, and not as much as the run...who knows.

    its certainly favorable for the giants to have a guy like JPP offset Osi's ransom and demands tho. but good link and good post

      I think part of Osi's problem is that he was mentored by Michael Strahan who was always looking for more money and bigger paydays and holding out if necessary, seems like he learned his lessons well.

        5 years, bum knees with meniscus damages ( 2 knee surgeries ) bum ankles, he's still a beast but father time has taken a toll on Osi.

          Strahan was always kind of a diva, but I love what he's done after his career ended. He loves the Giants organization and is probably one of the Giants' biggest fans. I think Tiki might also kind of regret what he did, and I don't blame Tiki for being pissed about it. Maybe he could have handled it better, but he was unhappy with his job and his bosses and he quit and *****ed about it. I'm sure some people on this board have done that. He's not like Parcells who is afraid to show his face at Giants stadium (even though he gets thunderous applause at all recognition he gets there even though he screwed the Giants over worse than Tiki ever could have). Every time the organization invites Tiki out for an event or something, he goes.

              He was an offseason diva. Back in 2000 or 2002 when his whole contract thing went down... He played his balls off, don't get me wrong, but he had a me first attitude for much of his career. In fact, I didn't really see him as a great teammate and leader until the 2007 season. Remember the whole "ballin'" thing? That was ****y diva stuff. I loved Strahan, and I never thought he was a cancer to the team, but he was ever so slightly a diva.

                No, but he is awesome at what he did last year. The problem is, he wants to get paid for how he played 5 years ago.

                    Ya know, I really think you guys are spoiled. OSI is still a beast when he has his health. Osi could start on 31 other teams.

                        Fine, its a belief you keep to yourself personally. But if thats the case, dont see why you went out of your way to say this.

                        That sounds more like you believing that person is wrong, thus making you vulnerable to any argument, more than you just having only a different opinion and voicing it separately

                          Having three "stud" DE's has been the recipe for 2 SuperBowls. I just hope they don't forget that. Keep Osi at all costs. Kiwi is not the answer at DE, either.

                            i agree with ur first part. but i disagree w ur point bout kiwi. if need be, he'd be a fine rotational pass rusher.
                            its been so long ago that he was strictly a de, so its easy to forget. but he had games where he showed a ton of potential...he even had a few "JPP" games...3 sacks vs washington or philly, i forget which...the one season before he went on IR, he was leading the d in sacks...part of me wishes we coulda seen how the Kiwi at DE situation went, but i also love the versatillity of his game to where he can play LB and DE, and do both well

                              Damn, Osi is a friggin beast. It always seems like its the trendy thing to **** on him, but I think the criticism he gets sometimes is unwarranted. Ignoring 2009, the last two years osi has willingly played the run very well under fewell
