  • 2012 Players Currently on the Bubble

    Let's talk about the players that we've carried over from last season. There are a few that are obviously considered long shots, but who do you think will be on the outside of the 53 this year.

    When I look at past performance and the current roster I see a few guys that have a slim chance of wearing Blue again this season:

    Jim Cordle
    Tyler Sash
    Marvin Austin
    Ryan Torain

    Still too early to say. The defensive tackle and offensive line pool isn't all that deep, and injuries are bound to happen.

      I get your point, but do you keep a player that's not worth keeping just for kicks, or replace him through the draft and FA.

        we would have to hit the FA pool, with whatever is out there to cement holes and needs.

          Marvin Austin will be on the 53 man roster. The Giants give their draft picks plenty of time to develop; Moss, Barden, Beatty, and Sintim.

            What about Phillip Dillard, Greg Jones, Mitch Petrus, Matt Dodge, Rhett Bomar, DeAndre Wright, Stoney Woodson, Bryan Kehl, Andre Woodson, Robert Henderson, Jay Alford, Adam Koets, Michael Johnson. (2007-2011 Draft Class)

            I'm not implying anything, just giving the other side of the spectrum.

              There are a bunch of bad players in there but you can't incluide Matt Dodge. If you have a LB or DB or OL who is a project you can bury him among 5 or 6 others. A punter has no such luxury. Dodge was horrible and there was no place to hide or park him.
              No one remembers who came in second.

                It's easy to say that but a punter has to earn his spot just like everyone else. If he didn't show promise there would've been another guy brought in to compete. A team doesn't say, "Ok, we have a punter signed, good. Lets go with him no matter how good or bad he plays"

                  Valid point, but none of those guys were drafted in the first three rounds.

                    Alford was a 3rd round pick in '07.

                        I knew I should of doubled checked, but I think my point is still valid. Austin still has upside and is very affordable.

                          Alford was injured and never was the same....

                            It doesn't make much sense to replace some of those guys when their FA counterpart wouldn't be that much of an upgrade while still costing more. Three of those guys mentioned are still viable backups on rookie contracts. And it's hard enough to choreograph the first round of the draft let alone all 8 picks to know who we're replacing.

                            And don't neglect roles on STs. That can be the make or break for a player on the bubble.

                              Ryan Torain
                              I think Austin is given 1 more year. He could be the first high pick to be cut early due to performance. Torian I dont think makes the team. Cordle can play multiple positions, he played everywhere at Ohio State so I think he will stick. Sash is pretty good on special teams but there is 5 safeties on the roster and thats before Thomas gets added to the mix.
