    Look at Archie's Face. LOL> He is thinking NO WAY is Eli playing for SD>
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

    # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

    1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
    2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
    4-New York Giants!!!
    5-NE
    Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

      Wow that was touching. Have to admit I was a bit choked up at the end of the video when all his family members and friends were outside on his porch congratulating him and crying. wow

        Finally, some of our draft picks reactions besides Pugh. Anyone got DeMontre or Nassib?

            U know, if ELI was in this yrs draft, i don't think there would be a team that ELI and his family would be upset about him going to, because parity has become so much a part of the NFL game, and was kinda just starting back in the early 2000's, that guys know how quickly teams can change there fate, and there teams fate..

              Incredible to watch Pugh and Hankins and their family's react to coming to the Giants. Goes to show you how big of a deal it is for these guys to be selected to come to this team and play for one of the most successful franchises in all of sports.

                or maybe they would have been that happy had any team selected him. The celebration is about a family member accomplishing a goal of playing professional football. It's not about the Giants.
                Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

                  Truth is we cannot determine that one way or the other. I'd like to think that perhaps a bigger reaction happens because it is the Giants. Few teams ever win two Superbowls twice in 5 seasons on 2 different occasions in their history as a franchise let alone in just a 25 year time span. Not to mention the Giants are an original team that was founded in the 1920's with a rich, classy history that helped shape the NFL into what it is today. Don't undersetimate how much more exciting it might be to a player to be drafted by an organization like the Giants rather than to some other random team as well as to get to play in the best sports region in the country.

                          Dude wake up. The whole family was cheering and crying. Do you think his mother cares if it's the Giants or the Jags? Not a chance. Her baby is accomplishing his dream. They all would have been happier if he was the first pick in the draft and went to the Eagles, our hated rival. Now the player might be excited to be with one team over another, but family is going to root for him no matter what team he lands on and no matter round he's drafted in.

                            What do you care who his manager is? Is he sending you a cut?

                              Maybe so but you cannot prove it one way or the other. If his family other than maybe his mommy, follows the NFL closely (which I am sure they do moreso than the average Joe) they know where the best places to go are and I'd put money on it that a good portion of the people in that room were extra pumped up because he was going to the Giants. You can believe your theory if you so choose but I will still have a little extra smile when I see reactions like the ones we saw with Pugh and Hankins when it was the Giants who drafted them. You want to be a grumpy sour puss because you think the reaction is probably what it would have been regardless of the team then you go ahead.

                                I understand where he is comming from. We are all still annoyed about Cruz remaining unsigned and since Cruz is being represented by Jay z, we just don't want to deal with a situation like that anytime soon. If Cruz holds out, signs the tender and joins another team next year, Jay z's popularity will drop to some degree (At least amoung Giants fans).

                                To be honest though, these two players are in completely different situations and it really deons't matter who is representing him.
