  • Giants very upset at losing Ballard!!

    Evidently they all were positive that Ballard would clear waivers. Said they should of just left him on the 90 man in hindsight. TC and JR very disappointed. Here's the link.......

    BB also weighed in... Write up talks About how their are unwritten rules when a player is waived to make room... BB said everyone knows that 31 teams have a chance to take him and everyone knows that...wow
    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!!!

      disappointing, but life moves on.

      Lets not look at Ballard as being a star TE. He was a good player, but he is replaceable.

            The New York Giants took a calculated risk of waiving the injured Ballard to make room on the roster to sign defensive tackle Rocky Bernard, and it backfired when the Patriots surprisingly snatched up the tight end off the waiver wire on Tuesday.




            True, Ballard will not play this year but gamble him on Rocky Bernard?

            Forget the Past, Live for the Future!

He was a good player, replaceable.[/quote]Replaceable yes and a great guy/ Perhaps a miscalculation by us but it is business. Don't forget that in the process, we cleared cap space and the Pats reduced cap space. We won't know who actually calcuated right on this one for at least a year. Ballard may never play again.
              No one remembers who came in second.

                    I wish I could read minds. I wonder what Reese is thinking when he is saying that? I don't think BB is getting a Christmas card this year.

                        We dont play the Pats this season unless in the superbowl 47...even still, Ballard won't be playing...then he will have three major tears to recuperate from before the 2013 season starts...tall order!!! Brady will be another year older and maybe their Oline struggles against the pass rush and needs him in to block...which he can but he isn't a threat in the passing game at that point.

                        Alot of people are reading way too much into this, believing that Belicheck is the only guy with a plan. I am sure Reese and Coughlin thought he might pass through the waiver wire and then we could do the kid right and pick him back up and IR him so we have the first opportunity to decide to sign or release him in 2013...it was not a big blow to any of our football scheming or "plans"...I guarrantee that!

                              Still dont get how the 90th guy on the roster is worth more then Ballard. Giants were foolish to cut him so early. Had they waited into training camp much better chance he slips through I think. The agent shouldnt of come out and said how the Giants wanted to resign him after he clears waivers either
