    Draft Position jockeying is upon us!

    With the final 3 games being rendered meaningless all that remains to be seen is what position we draft in for 2014..

    We all know the present coaches will do everything in their power to win the final games to try and save their jobs..

    That being said I for one hope we lose all 3. That would make us finish at 5-11. As of right now losing final 3 games we could pick 5-10. believe it or not there are actually 9 teams with a worse record then us. One with 2 wins and three with 3 wins. Then you have five with 4 wins. And we are tied with with two other teams at 5 wins. There are also 3 teams that have 6 wins that could poss finish with a worse record then us.

    So absolute worst case would be around 15 or so. I don't see us catching the teams with 2 and 3 wins even if we lose our final 3. Poss to surpass some of the 4 win teams if they get a few wins. Best case would be 6/7 maybe
    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:

    Maybe someone should start a thread with all the teams were up against and their schedules for final 3 like we do every year only this time instead of seeing if we will win NFCE or a WC it will be about the Draft

    Rookies never see the field under Coughlin, we'd have to wait at least three years to see the return on the investment on that strategy

    Justin Pugh is starting, Michael Cox has gotten a start, Moore has been getting more playing time and been a beast on ST's. Cooper Taylor has been on ST's. Hankins has gotten a few snaps this year as well...

    We will need guys we draft for OLine to step right in and make an impact

    For the most part that is true besides the ST's guys but Pugh probably would have won the starting RT spot even if Diehl didn't get hurt

    I doubt it. You seem to forget how much respect Coughlin gives Diehl
    Eli's 5 interceptions?

    He definitely likes him no doubt about that but if it was a legit competition like it was said to be in camp then Pugh would win because of how brutal Diehl has been as of late

    2 points in response:

    1) If you go back and listen to what the coaches said going into the season, even they were implying that Pugh would overtake DD. Remember, Pugh lost much of the preseason to a concussion. When asked upon his return who the starters were the coaches always said it was Diehl but qualified it with "for now" or "for the time being."

    But, even if I am wrong what does this even matter? Which brings me to my 2nd point.


    2) Every year players win and lose positions due to injures. It is part of football and there is fewer better examples than Victor Cruz, who was buried behind Domenik Hixon on the depth chart prior to Dom's knee injury in the 2nd week of 2011. Cruz went on to have 1 of the best season by any Giant WR ever and he did it because another guy's knee gave way.
