    Not sure that the 3 TE's on our roster would preclude JR from taking a TE . . . .Robinson hasn't even seen the field and Pascoe isn't a starting caliber player. Myers has had one good year, is an awful blocker and is on a short term deal.

    Totally agree with your assessment. However I still don't see the NYGs taking a TE in the first round with all the pressing needs at other positions
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this 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!!!!!

    I don't really see it happening either, unless JR feels that the value is just too good to pass up

    Ive come to the conclusion im going to be disappointed in who we pick. There just isnt enough players I like for the Giants at that spot.

    I sort of feel the same way, unless someone unexpectedly drops like Ansah, Warmack, Lane Johnson, Millner . . . seems pretty clear that's not going to happen though . . . . .

    Precisely for the reason that you wouldn't have to start him right away.

    It takes most receivers (and by extension, receiving TEs) 2-3 years to get with the program on average. Myers is here on a one year deal and Pascoe is eventually going to lose his lunchpail shine. Assuming Adrien Robinson steps up at some point in his life, there is still the need for a TE soon.

    Like I said, I wouldn't be crazy about the pick, but I could see Reese doing it if he felt that no one else of commensurate value was there at #19.

    I can dream can't I? I'm sick of seeing other tight ends running ruffshod over the middle. I think with Myers and Eifert, we could solve our dilemma of carrying two expensive wide recievers. Just look at NE. They rely on their tight ends, and have a mediocre wide receiving corp, so why couldn't we?
    Besides, we have Randle and the new guy to go with the one we keep. Not too shabby.................
