  • It would be a HUGE mistake to not resign Bennett, Francessa says Snee might retire?

    Francessa apparently says Bennett won't return and says Snee could possibly retire. Would be such a HUGE mistake to not resign Bennett. Hes just scratched the surface here.


    I know Francessa isn't a very credible source when it comes to Big Blue as he doesn't have the pulse of the team as much as he believes.

    Said he was hearing "rumblings" that Snee was considering retirement.

        I think Snee acknowledge this. Basically saying he considered retirement but hes definitely coming back this year.

          Would explain his "down season" last year.

          If we lost Snee all hope would be lost... we would be in such bad shape.

            Snee has mentioned in passing that when players get to be his age the begin to think about when they should retire, or something to that effect.

              It's also got to be hard for Snee to see all of his buddies he spent his entire career with all depart within a couple of years.

              O'Hara, Seubert, K-mack, and now maybe Diehl are all gone.

              Also Coughlin is his father-in-law he might not want to be here longer than Coughlin. Could play into his thinking even though TC essentially has an open ended contract.

                I just don't know if they can afford Bennett.

                  We HAVE to find a way... the guy even said he would take a home town discount to stay with us. He LOVES being a Giant.

                  I've LOVED this guy ever since we signed him. Been a pleasure and I knew once Mike Pope got his hands on him he would be special. Just barely scratched the surface.

                    To lose Snee the way the team is set up right now would be, IMHO, huge! I'm no GM but IMHO I've always wondered why we got rid of Mitch Petrus? Great collegian, mean as hell, and was a powerful, road-grader type, who should have fit the G-Men's profile of an OG!!! Oh well, as far as I know, he's still available!

                      Petrus was absolutely awful in preseason.

                          Nobody else picked him up? How good could he possibly be?

                          And as far as Snee goes, I'm sorry, but if you're talking about retiring, you're halfway there.

                            Snee is due to make about $6,700,000 in 2013 and $6,900,000 in 2014. It's hard for me to believe he would leave all that money on the table.

                              Good point. Makes me wonder if they'd possibly ever cut him, given his relationship with TC. He's been a solid player, and has earned everything he's got so far. But I couldn't see TC taking that kind of money away from his own daughter, or JR doing that to his beloved and trusted HC.
