    I get what your saying and I agree that he isn't elite anymore, but the guy is still a good situational pass rusher. I would love to see him retire a Giant just like Strahan...if he comes back at the right price.

    and yes he is replaceable...just like everyone else on the team besides for Eli

    The problem is Osi believes he's a starter and not one dimensional. Given our total lack of a run defense, situational pass rushers aren't our best bang for the buck

    with teams in our division and around the league going to spread offenses with the new hybrid type of QBs it looks to me that DEs like Osi who are weak against the run and can be trapped inside have become a liability ...

    I think he was giving us his all in 2012.

    The fact that so many of you are glad Osi is more than likely leaving is absolutely ridiculous. One of the best DE's in Giants history, has been one of the top 5-7 DE's his entire career and was an instrumental part in us beating the Patriots in 2 Super Bowls.

    He's not the DE he once was, so I understand why it'll be tough to bring him back from a financial standpoint. If money wasn't a question, however, I'd want him to retire a Giant.

    This MB has become a joke. Where's the loyalty?

    I wouldn't mind having him back at the right price either. He would be great on passing downs. The main problem is that Osi believes he is a starting DE and a 4 down player right now that believes he should get elite player money. I don't see it happening here at all.

    Speaking for myself, my loyalty is with the New York Giants. Players come and go. Yes it would make sense to bring Osi back for the right price. Osi's price is reportedly on an elite de's level. We don't have time or money for that.

    I usually read all of the articles that you post, but I must have missed the one where Osi said what he is looking for this offseason, and that he wants to go to a team that will make him a starter and full time player. I actually don't recall him complaining once about the amount of snaps he got the past two years.

    Ok so he says he believes he can be a complete DE. It doesn't say that he doesn't like how the Giants used him, or what he thinks he deserves to be paid. I notices that in the Victor Cruz threads you are very quick to say that nobody knows what he is looking to get paid. Well, same goes here.. I understand, he is probably gone, but he doesn't deserve the thrashing he takes on these boards.
