    Manningham and Jacobs

    Andre Brown, Ramses Barden.



    thats all I got to say...

    This is what happens when you draft well....you let guys go and get overpaid elsewhere, only to find replacements already on your roster. happens every year....

    IN REESE I TRUST!!

    Yep, seems like the giants have a knack for finding talent on their own roster
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    both manningham and jacobs have character issues as far as i'm concerned, i may be the only fan that was happy to see both of them go.

    i'd rather take blue collar guys like brown and Barden........

    Now if we can just apply this talent in drafting OL, we'll be good to go.
    No one remembers who came in second.

    You can argue the passing game opens up the running game

    He does read the D and switch to the best play. This puts the RB's in the best play for the D, so he does help them. This is one of the reasons that stats don't tell the whole story.

    Neither of them had any off field problems. Neither were considered locker room distractions. Jacobs had a few bonehead penalties but that's it. Don't see where your coming from with this one CDN

    i thought jacobs was a distraction. is mouth was a liability not an asset, those last couple years he was whiny about his carries, manningham always looked like he got mopey when he didn't get enough targets and dropped the ball more than i like.

    this is just a personal opinion. like i said, probably the only fan happy to see both of them go. they both contributed in their own way to our success, but we cut ties with them at the right time.

    both didn't find immediate top paying homes on the FA market, so to a certain extent other teams saw some of this too, especially with manningham.
