Had nothing to do with Pascoe. You don't need to account for a guy that doesn't even have an average of 10 targets a season.
    I was using the Manningham comment as an example. You have to account to whoever is on the field and according to Mike Pope, defenses have to consider Pascoe in different terms than Hynoski. Pascoe did a good job at FB when Hedgecosk went down and he'/s been taking regular season snaps there ever since.

    Obviously we'd prefer Hynoski, but I don't think we need to waste a roster spot if Hynoski's going to be able to play by week 4.

The upside to this move is he is an excellent blocker to protect Eli and can catch the ball in the flat out of the backfield and get good yardage. Im sure he can adapt to lead blocking for Wilson and Brown. He has plenty of gas left in his tank and should be healthy. Also he wants to come back home and he could be a positive force in the locker room. He knows the system and we can get him for veteran minimum. In sum the move definitely has more upside than risks. Finally he is only about a year older than Leach so the Giants cannot say he is over the hill if they want to sign Vontee Leach.
      You know...your heart is in the right place. At this point, he's the proverbial square peg for the Giants.

        Jacobs can protect Eli nicely but he is NOT a good receiver in close quarters where he needs to turn his torso and softly receive the ball. It seems to me from watching him over the years that he has as many drops under 10 yards as he has catches. He is just too thick and doesn't have the necessary fine moror skills to be a good receiver. IMO I am also not sure how good he would be as a blocking back for Wilson. Others may have a better perspective on how his skills are suited for that role.
        No one remembers who came in second.

          Dez, you don't want to go there. There are ways to settle this like picking the most teams who will have a winning record, or or predict wich player is going to make the biggest impact on the Giants team this season. Most of my threads I made are way more accurate than anything you made. You don't know anything about the two back set or any set for that matter. You don't know the concept of football my friend. You are a joke along with many on this messageboard.

                He's GWAT.

                I can never remember who Jakk is until I make the mistake of responding to one of his posts.

                  Looks like he turned his torso nicely on this play and didn't quite receive if softly.. http://youtu.be/NAz3-v7kpRc

                      Love the big fella but a receiver he is not.

                          At a very pragmatic level, we gotta ask, what does BJ bring at this point? He'll always be a Giant in my eyes, but, production.... I just couldn't see him as a useful Fullback at this point; Injuries man...injuries...his legs are glass pillars.

                            I disagree with your take

                                dont worry lol im pretty sure hes said that to several intelligent fans, i know he's said something like that to me once in the past. its futile to try and disprove the claim too bc you can do so on the most basic of levels to understand, and it still won't sink in...
