  • M Jones-Drew anyone?

    I cannot see the Jags trading him but would you want him on the Giants if a win win traded could be made? Didn't he run for 1600 yards last year? I don't know how trades like this are done but I think I would want him running for Big Blue.
    Thoughts?

    I knew this was going to come up, I say no right away because nobody can run behind our line right now, add to the fact that Giants dont make big blockbuster trades and I think you have your answer

          ^ this is a great reason as well, there is just no use for him, no use to even bring this up

            Can't afford is completely true but I don't know about the not needing him part. A top 5 player from any position is always a plus to have no matter who you are.

                I can only think of a handful of guys who were able to gain yards despite having poor blocking. Of course, Jim Brown comes to mind. Gale Sayers, Walter Payton, Barry Sanders...I'm sure I'm leaving a few out. My point is this. Let's open some holes and see how good the guys we have are before we go out signing primmadonnas. JMO, though.

                  He will be 30 next year as well. That would also be a ridiculous amount of resources put into RB. We would have about 17 Million in salaries plus the Draft pick we would have to send to the Jaguars. Plus we have zero cap room to make this deal which would mean u would have to push money into future years which would cripple this team when Jones Drew declines. U would have what LT was for the Jets last year making 12 million dollars who u cant cut

                    He's too self absorbed to fit here and we have a # 1 draft pick in David Wilson who is going to make everyone forget about MJD.

                      This is going to be the biggest need for improvement that will put us in a position to repeat.

                        If anyone understands how our organization is, our current team, the salary cap, and all of that works, they would know that the idea of that is almost literally impossible. With that being said, if I was in the jets organization, I would give up A LOT to get this guy. The idea of ground and pound with him and tebow would probably excite them. However, they would still have to find a replacement for Wayne Hunter.

                              I agree with you. Also, the defenders weren't as fast and conditioned as they are now. Therefore, it is even HARDER nowadays to gain yards with no blocking. Also, the blockers back then could get away with more as far as penalties. You are right though, I don't care how good you are....if there are no holes, you are going nowhere.
