    Giants' David Baas experiencing significant hand swelling

    http://www.giants101.com/2012/10/02/...lling-in-hand/

    Excerpt: "There were several times during Sunday's 19-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles where New York Giants center David Baas appeared to be having trouble getting the ball back to quarterback Eli Manning in the shotgun formation. There were also a few instances where the snap exchange was less than stellar. Initially, it was chalked up to a bad day for Baas, but it sounds like the veteran may have had a legitimate excuse for his uncharacteristic struggles.

    "His hand was all swollen. He rolled three [snaps] back," head coach Tom Coughlin said Monday. "David has a big old swollen hand today and that contributed to it I’m sure." Read more...

    Why do we not find out about these things until several days after? It would save a lot of grief from the fanbase...

    Or it would simply add six threads of "there are no excuses, he sucks."

    Because we all know us fans know all the details that go on behind the scenes....don't you know that RF? Maybe.. just maybe...the coaching staff thought Bass with a swollen hand was a better choice than Cordle healthy
