  • Giants organization finally sends a message to players by...

    Cutting Darell Scott???

    Scott made his first career start against the Chiefs. He finished the game with 26 rushing yards on five carries and caught one pass for zero yards. In four games, Scott’s 56 rushing yards on 10 carries were second on the team to David Wilson’s 130 yards. Scott also had 10 receptions for 98 yards, including his first career touchdown on a 23-yard pass from Eli Manning vs. Denver on Sept. 15.

    So.... You start a guy, who rushed for 5 yards a carry, then you cut him? Isn't he like the last guy besides cruz to catch an Eli manning TD catch?

    Pretty funny! I thought D'Scott was the only guy over-achieving on this roster. Nothing spectacular but still better then wilson, or jacobs, or like everyone else on the field.

    Wake up call for everyone with a big contract and does not produce! Giants will cut your teammates if you dont shape up!
    Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

    It's a well known fact that NFL owners like to see their money on the field, and not on the bench or getting physical therapy during a game.

    The Giants are better than many teams in this respect, but the adage holds true that if you get paid, you play. . .whether you're hurt or you just plain stink.

      The stats lie. Scott has been in games late when the scores were out of hand and defenses didn't have to even try to defend the run. That padded his stats. From a yards after contact standpoint, Wilson has been much better.


      He also had a hand to play in 3 turnovers thus far and while many here seem to think he could pass protect, his man has gotten to the Qb 4 times this year, the worst number of any back on the team.

        When you are a guy who only made the team because another guy in front of you breaks his leg in the preseason, you can't afford to do what he did at the end of the Dallas game, then drop another screen pass and fumble a couple weeks later. He was given his chances, he'll regret not taking advantage of them.

          when you fumble a handoff that the qb places in your stomach right between your arms you deserve to be cut.

            I've always liked Scott's speed but somehow it never translated. If it weren't for Andre's injury he would have never made the final 53.... Just an early cut to make room for a backup center, which indicates that Baas may be out for a while.

              I'm not sure how he was overachieving when he dropped two or more passes and couldn't take a hand off from Eli last week.

                Somehow his speed never translated? Maybe because he never really had a shot. Finally he gets a chance this year and has one of the worst offensive lines in the history of the NFL. Not really his fault. The fumbles? Maybe he is shell shocked like QBs are sometimes by there being 3 guys in the backfield before he touches the ball. I dont know, but I do remember a fake punt he took to the house in preseason and that screen pass to him earlier he took to the house. DAvid Wilsons speed also isnt translating.... Id say it is the offense. No way Wilson should not be a playmaker or at least getting more touches.
                Life is like a Giants game, you never know what you are going to get.

                  It's because he was never a burst guy. And never had the balance to break tackles. Got tripped up way too easily like Jacobs did.

                  Really. Scott and Jacobs are quite similar talent wise. Jacobs just is considerably larger

                  And i don't think releasing scott had anything to do with "sending a message". They needed two roster spots, Scotts production was the easiest to replace... There you go

                      When you have the chance to sign the worst offensive lineman in the league from 2012, you need to make room for him.

                      Seriously though, Scott fumbled a routine handoff that my 5th grade son could have handled. These team is loaded with mistake-prone players....they won't miss him.

                        What you mean to say is Eli manning had his second fumble of the game, QB->running back exchanges are QB fumbles. You can tell the play was messed up and they were two far apart for a hand off.

                              it grosses me out that you wanna look at his stats the way you do, when he got about 23 of the yards on 2 draw plays ran when it was 3rd & 20... none resulting in a 1st down... good grief
