    I used to love hearing about the old ballplayers of that era, especially from people like Phil Rizutto and Tim McCarver on TV, and Pete Franklin on WFAN back in the 80's.

    Moose Skowron had a...

    I've probably read 1000 of your posts over the years, and let's face it. . .we all have good and bad ideas.

    But thanks for sharing this special life changing moment of yours. . .with us internet...

    Did you root for the Dodgers to beat the Mets last year in the playoffs?

    It seems the men in my family who liked the Dodgers in Brooklyn, pretty much switched to the Mets when they arrived a few...

    Thanks for all the fantastic posts, people!

    I wish I could save it in book form and send it to the national library.

    Truly a history lesson. . .a gift from our elder posters. . .the ones...

    I noticed similar things watching pre HS aged play baseball. You just want to run up to them and scream at them to run after fly balls.
  6. A question for some of the "more seasoned" fans.

    I know that way back in the day there were also the New York FOOTBALL Yankees, and even the Brooklyn FOOTBALL Dodgers.

    I realize the NFL did not enjoy the mass popularity back then that it grew...

    was thinking the exact same thing. He's got the reward on his mind, and not the road.

    At least at that moment.

    What was the Beatles' plan if they ever lost John Lennon?

    You just move on (Sam Elliott voice).

    No, they're in business because they sell bets at less than they're worth.

    Anyway, enough about that.

    I hope you're right about Eli's third ring this season. I ain't no Nostradamus, but I'm...

    All Vegas long-term bets are skewed so that New Yorkers visiting there get ripped off.

    Every year, I have to remind the boards of something.

    Jerry Reese has NEVER traded down in ANY round in ANY draft. That's 10+ years of not trading down. Do you think he will give up a top-ten...

    It's good to know that MOVING FORWARD, most of us feel rookies and young players will have as good a' chance as anywhere in the NFL to get great, play great, and feel great about the future of this...

    I have 100% confidence in Jerry Reese's ability to find good players.

    I just think he has the draft savvy of a drunk seventeen-year-old sailor in the red light district.
  14. That's a good mentality to have because it...

    That's a good mentality to have because it involves looking FORWARD.

    And looking forward, I'd have to hope that more rookies get the reps they need to prove to us. . .if they are in fact. ....

    He may have been available when we picked legit. We'll never know, because Reese is like a kid in a candy store at the draft. No self control.

    So now not only are the Giants in a hole with the...

    We'll see Landon Collins making great tackles over the next few years, and think, "He's not so bad at all".

    But when we start hearing that a certain player needs a strong teammate to make up for...

    In my mind, improvement is largely a matter of 3 things:

    1. Reese finding more Football Players who are athletic guys, and not the other way around.

    2. Have a coaching staff that brings out...

    A lot of us feel the same (or almost the same) way.

    The good news is that this league is built for parity, and bad teams can become good very quickly.

    But make no mistake about it. . .our NYG...

    It's easy to assume blame when you have job security.

    Over the last week, it's become clear that Giants' ownership has given Reese a vote of confidence.

    So basically, I'm not impressed by his...

    I gotta say. . .I read a thread which was strongly critical of BMac's press conference. And then I saw the actual conference in question, and saw nothing negative at all.

    I'm really looking...

    There was always a buzz around here about Coughlin "not playing rookies". And yes, we all know of a few rookies who started day one.

    But where there's smoke, there's usually fire.

    I'm sure if you count kickoff returns and coverage in there, we'd be right up in the middle of those numbers.

    Even worse than the draft "misses" are the complete non-picks, because we'll never know what could have happened if we didn't use multiple picks on Ramses Barden, Sinorice Moss, Landon Collins,...
