    NY GIANTS: TIME FOR RAMSES BARDEN TO STEP UP

    NY GIANTS: TIME FOR RAMSES BARDEN TO STEP UP

    "In the 2009 NFL Draft, the New York Giants drafted a gifted; but raw WR out of
    Cal Poly in the 3rdround. Standing 6’6 and weighing 227 pounds, the
    Giants organization felt that they had found a diamond in the rough and a steal.
    That player’s name is Ramses Barden who has yet to emerge as
    the standout WR the Giants had projected. With the 100% certainty of
    Mario Manningham opting out for free agency, the Giants are in
    need of a competent replacement to compliment Hakeem Nicks and
    Victor Cruz.

    Many in the
    organization are torn, as some feel that Barden may not be the
    answer; while others still have high hopes. Thus far in his three year career
    as a Giant, Barden has a total of 15
    receptions for 174 yards. Last season, Barden
    collected 9 receptions and 94 yards, a little
    more than half of his career totals. These numbers do not suggest optimism,
    however; I am one who believes that Barden can become that
    3rdreceiver for Eli Manning and an equal threat that
    Manningham was.

    The main concerns regarding
    Barden had been his inability to stay healthy throughout his
    career and also his inconsistency in catching the ball. With the NFL draft a
    little over a month away, the Giants will need to decide if Barden
    is the answer or not. My guess is that the Giants will draft a WR
    somewhere between the 4thand 7throunds; regardless of
    their perception of Barden. With an open competition in mind
    for that 3rdreceiver, the Giants are hoping that Barden
    will emerge and take advantage of this opportunity and give the Giants
    another potent weapon. "

    Fixed.

    As much as it pains me to agree with the clownshoe though, I don't think Barden is going to materialize either.

    Inconsistancy in routes, catching, lack of speed and injury history just doesn't give me a lot of hope that this guy is a gamer.

    Thanks Roa.. I feel he's ready to step in. The question is can he stay healthy?


    The receiver out of Cal Poly.... I just loved hearing that for some reason. When we drafted him all I could think of was how cool Cal Poly sounds lol..
    ALL IN!!!!!!!!

    I'm ALL IN are you?

    I think Barden's ship has sailed. In a time when we need all the money we can find to keep players we need.....

    I think Jernigan is going to make some big plays this year.

    The guy is fast as hell.
    Manning is king of the comebacks, having engineered 24 fourth-quarter comebacks and 28 game-winning drives, including two in the final minutes of Super Bowls XLVI and XLII. Moreover, his quarterback rating rises to 94.2 in "late-and-close" games. With numerous comebacks, eight postseason victories and a pair of Super Bowl MVPs under his belt, few have been better with the game on the line.

    Not trying to be a jerk but if Barden makes anything happen, it's mostly because the coverage is going to be on Nicks and Cruz.. Though that might be the case with anyone coming in.
