Thread: With FA looming, Let's compile a list of former Giants who committed 'career suicide'

  1. #51
    Amazing! This team has such ability to make mediocre football players play better, yet we have only won two championships in 20+ years. Stop being homers these guy were all average players here and went on to be average elsewhere. Guys like Bavaro, Tiki, Pettigut, and Armstead, don't belong on the list. They were all done by the time they left here. The rest were bad players anyway. The only two good players that left, actually left for big contacts: Gibril and Coefield. And who can blame them.

    There are 53 players on every team. The changeover is huge every year.

    Doubt Steve Smith would. Smartest thing he ever did was take that money from Philly. His career is likely over at least he got himself that 4 million

    Extremely overrated and selfish player.

    Coefield is doing well. MM did well in SFG this season. Hillard had a decent career after he left. Will Allen played a long time after he left.
    Armsetad did ok in DC.

    He took good care of his family by leaving and I support him for doing that. Whether he stayed here or left his career would be over. For his family's sake he's got much more dough in the bank because of his decision to leave. Where are all the people who wanted us to put the high offer on the table for Smith or Boss? All it did was tie up cap space for those team that could have been used on healthy players. That's the process JR goes through every year............balancing the salary cap among healthy players who can come together as a team to chase another title. Go Blue!!

    Im not so sure - remember, the Giants didnt wnat to rush him back from injury and said it would be around 6 weeks before he would see the field. I think other than the money was that Philly was also telling him that he could play much MUCH earlier. People were fuming here that part of the reason we lost him was because our medical staff didnt know what they were doing.

    Had he stayed, or at least nursed that knee like he should have I think he would have had a better shot at making something out of his career.

    Brandon Jacobs - career essentially over
    Manningham - played on 2nd best team in NFC. Larger salary than Nicks and Cruz. Not shoved under the Giants depth chart
    Shockey - won a Superbowl with New Orleans. Saved his career after injury and replaced bt Boss
    Steve Smith - agreed, stupid choice to leave
    Bavaro (Was actually cut after the injury so really doesn't qualify, although he would of retired a Giant)
    Plax - shot himslef. Thankful it wasnt accidental suicide. Jets wanted him Giants didnt
    Gibril Wilson - HUGE salary yo leave
    Kevin Boss - HUGE salary to leave
    Goff - folowed the money. Got injured again. giants would not pay him
    Aaron Ross - HUGE pay day
    Tollefson - HUGE pay day (relative to what Giants would pay)
    Cofield (Could of had another ring) - has had an excellent career. May get another rong this year
    Tim Carter (Although he was traded) - sucked hete and everywherre else
    Will Allen - sucked here too
    William Joseph ? Can't remember if we released him or not - worse first round bust in Giants history. Didnt have a career





    List of players that have done well for themselves:

    Visanthe
    Jurevicus
    Ron Dayne
    Dhani Jones
    Freddy Robbins


    Add on


    Basically almost everyone that departs us in one way or another would give their pay check to be back in Giants blue.[/QUOTE]
