    And he was the last guy on this team that played with attitude and had a set of balls.
    We don't really know if it was bad or not. There may have been medical issues. NFL RB's have about 5 yrs careers on avg. AB is there and pretty beat up. We all hate to lose guys, but sometimes its just time to say thank you and goodbye.

          I'm disgusted that New Yorkers allow philly cheese steak to be called "philly cheese steak" in New York. They should call it "New York Cheese Steak" in New York. Also New England Clam chowder should be renamed the "Lower Manhattan Clam Chowder.

The Giants have found and developed a lot of great talent. Now He's trying to keep as much as he can. I think the biggest problem is guys being torn between wanting to stay with a great organization and getting a huge payday. Reese is using every trick in the book to keep talent on board. If we didn't have such a great organization, these guys would not have restructured.

            Changing personnel is part of the league now.
            As much as it hurts to say good bye, we will loose good players. Let's see what the off season brings before we hang anyone.
            Indeed, trying to balance the salary cap and hard decisions about personnel are part of the game and GMs earn their paycheck every year. I'm not angry at anyone in particular bro but I guess I'm disgusted about the salary cap hit this year because everyone saw it coming with lots of inflated deals and so many contracts than needed restructuring in consequence. I guess everybody ( players and FO ) accept the unwritten rules of the game and they play by them, well-aware of the risks and benefits of the business. I know this is a phase any team goes through every once in a while but it seems that I just can't get used to it even with all my years loving the game. Call me a romantic but thats just the way I'm wired.

              I'm not implying that the Giants don't spend enough or don't wish for them to do it but just do it wisely and in a responsable manner .

                It's the maneuvers to get you under the cap that are killing teams, and those maneuvers are in so many cases irresponsible in the cap's health in long term. Its easy to understand , in life you have to adjust to your own budget, you can't spend more than your earning.

                  you just can't be afraid to let guys with huge contracts go. even if you like them. if it doesnt make sense cap wise or they under perform pull the trigger on the release button and now you have a nice chunk of $$$ to spend getting better or filling more than one spot.

                    Some of the moves made in recent years seem like they just not seeing things in advance.

                      You are correct but the truth of the matter is that I can't seem to get accustomed to the " cold " side of the business. I guess thats why I'm not a GM , LOL !

                        yeah its tough, i know iv fired people in my life that i liked. but its business and if a player is due to take up 9 mil in cap space he better be good and low injury risk.

                          AB mentioned he was open to it but by the looks of some reports it seems the cuts are final.

                              Build a bridge and get over it. As long as we have Eli, we'll be competitive plus Wilson can use the snaps to help boost up his confidence without constantly looking over his shoulder. Besides, Rb's are easy to find and I trust that Reese has a plan. As far as the defense, it's time to rebuild and get younger and get some guys in here who can hopefully stay healthy. You think this is a hard pill to swallow? Imagine being a Pats fan? I thank all the players we lost and I wish them the best... especially Bradshaw.

                                I'm not so worried about how much the Giants spend as long as they can manipulate the numbers without blowing up the whole team when it comes time to get under the cap. I think, compared to other NFL teams, they have been pretty conservative and actually get more bang for the buck. I believe even if they had a lot of room under the current cap they still wouldn't go after star players and would still bargain shop.

                                I think this is why I don't enjoy this part of the off season as much because it normally comes down to number crunching. I usually don't pay too much attention until right before the draft. It is kind of like the Winter Meetings in baseball.
