    NFL.com Calls OBD "premier vertical threat in

    [/QUOTE] Odell Beckham, wide receiver, drafted 12th overall by the New York Giants. So you probably saw the "elite" Eli Manning toss close to 30 picks last season. While there is some talent outside in New York, I've heard Rueben Randle's work ethic leaves a bit to be desired. Victor Cruz can't do it by himself, and with Rashad Jennings set to be the lead back, the Giants will be throwing the ball a lot in 2014. Beckham was arguably the premier vertical threat in this draft. [/QUOTE]

    Who cares?!?! They also said David Wilson was a good running back. Im a little worried about OBJ's size. Hoping for the best. I keep reading he doesnt have elite speed either. He gets caught from behind. I dont like that for a smaller receiver. I still feel like he could be good in McAdoos new system though. In Gilbrides system, he would be another wasted pick.

    Imagine a package with Cruz, ODB, and JJ flooding the middle with Randle taking the top off

    I hope McAdoo can use that, cause Gilbride could not.

    McAdoo probably recognizes that he has 1-2 years max to prove himself, if he does well he will be a top candidate to replace TC in two years, if not he will be back to a TE coach when Coughlin retires. Because of this he is probably very motivated.

    He for sure wouldn't have been there in the second round
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a 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!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!
