    When the Giants drafted Jernigan my first thought was why are they drafting a 5'8" WR? How often do short receivers justify a 3rd round pick? I know we need a kick returner, but a third round pick? Reese has made many good moves. This was not one of them. Should have used it on OL.

      Reese has not been wrong often....and there is no real evidence he is wrong here....why don't we give it some time and see if the natural gifts shine through( I am confident they will)

        Patience is a virtue and Reese has it in spades

          Yes good point another indictment would be the giants drafting Rueben Randle in the second round ...........I don't think he will be in the giants plans long term

            Hes got talent but i'm telling you when these guys leave such a sour taste in Coughlins mouth to start there careers, its tough for them to get playing time going forward, especially when its a talented positon within the team.. Same happened with David Wilson, and it woulden't be surprising if it takes quite awhile before we see him overcome his ugly play early on and actually get legit chances to show what he can do...

              Wilson is returning kick offs. Brown is running/blocking better than Wilson at the moment. Wilson will develop at his own pace. The fact that Wilson is trusted to field kicks offs would indicate Coughlin's taste buds are fine.

              Here are the snap counts in the Panthers' game for wide receivers and running backs, not including special teams plays


              Cruz 63 snaps (88%)
              Brown 54 snaps (78%)
              Randle 27 snaps (39%)
              Wilson and Jernigan 4 snaps (6%)

              Virtually every one not inactive got on the field.

                I completely agree...thought they would have learned their lesson with Sinorice...
