  • Jerry Reese Squeezen Up Those Lemons

    The man just turns Lemons into Lemonade. When we lost out on getting Vonta Leach . He finds an undrafted Fullback who hits like a truck, leaps over defenders for 1st downs. And who can think of a cooler name for a fullback than Hynosoris. All our TEs go down in camp, yet some little unknown named Bear Pascoe picked up the slack. Think of all the coin Jerry saved with those 2 positions alone.

      You're right... but, JR is wise... he looks for solid players to fill in the gaps... they don't have to be name stars to catch his eye.
      For example, there are hundreds of TE's in any college class... guys that are solid FB players... they're just not 6'6", 260, and fast. The book on someone like Bear is... solid blocker, not a lot of speed but has good hands and doesn't fumble.
      Well, that's all JR is looking for. He doesn't need the next Mark Bavaro, or Tony Gonzales... just someone reliable who isn't going to mess up and miss a block or drop one of the 2 passes Eli might throw his way.

        You're 100% on the money re Reese's overall approach.

        HOWEVER, if I'm honest with myself, I wouldn't say no to a Mark Bavaro 2.0......

          No offense every one. But this approach spelled out just seems like common sense.

          "Get guys that don't fumble..."

          Him, like any GM, look for coachable guys that study the fundamentals of football.

            Another Bavaro would be a dream. It's been too long.
            I'd also appreciate a really stud LB. Doesn't have to be an LT... but a Carson, Banks, Pepper, or Armstead would be nice... and, is overdue.

              I love Jerry Reese but let's remember that he offered Albert Haynesworth 80mil. Thank you Danny Snyder! He's gotten some luck along the way. I'd say it's a toss-up beween him and Ozzie Newsome for best exec.

                He might have. For all we know, that might have been the least amount offered him by any team in the league. We also don't know if that was a 6 year, 80 Million, 50 Million guaranteed contract, or 6 year, 80 Million, 11 Million guaranteed, with an option after the third year. Making it, technically, three years, eleven million dollars.

                Look at the contract Gronkowski signed yesterday. 6 years, 52 million. In reality, 16.5 is guaranteed money, and he can be cut after the third year without any cap penalty.

                  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!!!

                    I think "lemons" is misleading. JR simply has an eye for finding diamonds in the rough.




                    But let's spread the wealth to the coaches that coach them up as well.

                    I stopped fighting my inner demons. We're on the same side now.

                      You have to wonder... How? The '86 team was solid in veery position. Bavaro being better, their OL being far better. Simms was playing very well, so you couldn't sat Eli was a big advantage. Our WR's are far superior now. Everyone used to wonder how good Phil would be with better receivers, I don't know that Phil ever had a single Pro Bowl WR.
                      Phil had a great running game
                      JR and Coughlin do every bit as well as George Young and Parcells ever did.

                        True dat.
                        With all our criticism, Coughlin stays with them and they've gotten the job done. Fewll did a great job with the DB's considering the injuries and the rookie, Prince, being thrust in there.
                        I've had my issues with Kildrive, but Eli is comfortable with the system and makes it work. Mike Pope does a fabulous job with very average and ever-changing TE's.

                          Oh I totally agree, about Jerry finding gems. I meant when we needed or wanted a certain player, but were not able to sign. The situation was the Lemon that JR had to deal with. ( Not any individual player )
