    all this Osi to Baltimore talk is confusing as a Giants fan....
    I hope to the football gods that the Giants are not entertaining this pathetic offer.

    3rd rounder? Why not make a trade on Draft day if the Giants wanted something?
    Osi for a year is far better than 120th+ pick NEXT year....</P>


    [/quote]Its all talk. We only have 3 DEs at the moment.
    [/quote]</P>


    Not really.* I think they are planning to use put Kiwi back at DE this season.* The Rivers trade would suggest that.* We are actually loaded at LB right now without Kiwi.</P>


    [/quote]</P>


    I guess thats true, but even so, the advantages of having Osi for another year far outweighs the mystery of a 3rd rounder in the following year....</P>


    [/quote]</P>


    Putting the Osi crap aside, the football reality is this.</P>


    When Osi takes the field on passing downs, he moves JPP out of position to left DE, where he's far less effective.* I'd much rather see JPP stay at right DE and use Kiwi in the rotation.* We will need another back up DE for the rotation but I don't think Osi has the impact you think.* At least not from here on out.</P>


    I say deal Osi for the best pick we can get and free up $5MM in cap room.* That gives us more flexibility to sign guys to be role players. (which is exactly what we need).</P>


    [/quote]If Reese wanted to trade away Osi, it would of been best to do it during the draft. I have to agree with pizz, waiting a whole year to use a 2 or 3 rd draft pick doesnt make much sense. Hes worth much more than that. But then again, will Osi ball out for a new contract? or pout about he didnt get a new contract and give half assed efforts.
    [/quote]</P>


    Osi does NOT want to be a Giant this season under any circumstances.* He views a trade as his only chance for a big contract and it has to be this season.* he will continue to be a back up in 2012 for us and after the season he'll be a year older.* He knows that his chances for a pay day are shrinking as every day passes.</P>


    In other words, he will pout and whine and complain and be a general irratant to the team.</P>[/quote]


    again i disagree with u there.

    Its about Money. he wants the most he can get and im sure if it was a tie anywhere with the same offer from 5 different teams that he would lean towards the giants
    Fear the name, appreciate the game

    I posted about this last week:
    Why do we make such a big deal about contract hold outs. sure they seem whiny and childish, but just like you said, this is Osi's only opportunity to make more money.
    In the NBA, Dwight Howard demanded a trade from Orlando, and it never happened, and everyone around the league, players analysts etc all say the same thing "it's bad business for Orlando to not deal him, youre now messing with a guy's money, and that's not good" and everyone gets behind him.
    Osi does the same thing, and every calls him a piece of ****. Whether you like it or not, these past few years, Osi could have made ALOT more money on another team. Now as*a Giants fan, thats good for us, but how can people not see that he reserves the right to first ask for a negotiation, and now, a trade? It doesnt help that we've paid other people more than him, and given them sizeable signing bonuses...specifically Kiwi. Not that I see anything wrong with the Kiwi signing, but yea, it does cause waves with Osi for obvious reasons.</P>


    [/quote]</P>


    He's well within his rights to hold out if he wants.* I'm looking at this from a Giants perspective.* It hurts the team.* If he holds out, we not only lose the player, but we still have the cap hit.* Plus its a distraction.</P>


    And you mention Dwight Howard.* How did that work out for the Magic?</P>


    The only thing I care about is the New York Football Giants.* Osis will be fine either way.* He'll be driving his Bentley (or whatever he drives) and pooping on women whether he gets a new deal or not.</P>[/quote]

    in the new cba isn't 10k a day for a holdout? doesn't that get applied back to the cap

    [quote user="dezzzR"][quote user="JPizzack"][quote user="Morehead State"]Speaking of faking injuries,* He did the opposite last year.* He whined about not getting a new deal while hiding a knee injury.


    He's a ****head.</p>


    [/quote]</p>


    Dezz said he faked it....lol
    you guys appear to be on the same side, but one of you has wrong facts.</p>[/quote]No i said he faked the severity of the injury he received during the regular season.
    [/quote]

    i agree. he had to be talked into playing that last cowboys game.

    month and half for a high ankle sprain?

    </P>


    The league got a win in the new CBA as it pertains to holdouts. In an effort to prevent them, under the new CBA if player under contract fails to report to training camp, he is fined $30,000 per day by his club. Thatís more than double the fine in the prior CBA which was $14,000 per day.</P>

    This is totally off the current subject, but I've tried to find out how to put some reaaly old stuff into the histoire (a little French lingo for y'all) and haven't succeeded. One of my all time favorites was Ray Weitecha, C, for about 40 years. He was undersized by the standards even back in the '50's. He was able to center the ball on long snaps so that the laces ALWAYS faced forwards. Today, it's a specialty to just be a long snapper. Do I love DeOssie, absolutement! (A little Fench lingo there!)
