  • What does plax,boss,cofield and s.smith have in common?

    All of them left or didnt resign for greener pastures.
    All of them are enjoying the off season.
    Jets,raiders,skins and Philly all eliminated from playoff contention.
    I guess the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
    Giants still alive because of the late start. And looking decent so far
    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!!!

      For anyone who thinks the Giants GM can't draft, all you need to do is look at how other teams covet our players.

      BTW, Boss got hurt again yesterday - he does not have many concussions left.

        True. Was that on the TD pass he caught?

The job of the GM is to assemble the best talent and to manage the salary cap. You make it sound like Smith should have passed up that money to stay with us for less. But would we have been a better team with Smith playing and Cruz sitting? People have to make the decision that is best for them and their families. Careers are short and if they can get more money they should. A GM needs to improve the roster every year. Everything is in flux, players age, some guys become too costly to keep (think Manningham this off season). Would we be better off with Boss for a healthy sum or Ballard for peanuts?




                So view all of this for what it is..............a business and accept that Jerry Reese did a pretty darn good job of balancing talent with the salary cap. Go Blue!

                No one remembers who came in second.

                    without ballard and cruz - eespecially cruz - we would be in off season mode.

                    Just keep lining up draft choices. Change in the NFL today can actually be good.

                      What was the injury? Was it another concussion? If so, he needs to retire for the sake of his health.

                      I am happy that each of those guys were Giants -- they were ALL key contributors to a SB 42 victory.

                      It is a business and each individual, whether football player or not, has to make their own decisions for themselves. I can't blame Boss for taking double what the Giants offered; SS taking guaranteed money after such a severe injury. Same thing with Plax who is older and whose career is on the downside anyway. And Cofield, his 'Skins money was probably a lot more than the Giants could offer.

                      I can't blame any of these guys. Do the Falcs blame Boley; do the 'Boys blame Canty; do the Cards blame Rolle; do the 49ers blame Bass; do the Jets blame McKenzie?

                        I saw the TD catch - he fell backward banged his head grabbed it with both hands and did not move. Loved that guy, but I agree. Take the money and run.
