Big Blue Huddle / Re: This OBJ retweet is making news

I saw that yesterday, Rich. Now I'll ask a JimV rhetorical question. Who the heck is Roland Martin. Sounds like he should be on Laugh in.

Big Blue Huddle / Distraction Has No Place In This House
« on: May 27, 2017, 08:21:20 AM »
After a week of some controversy several NYG players came up big in interviews to take the legs out of any Drama and to have the back of their teammates.

Those that come to mind and I'm sure there were others are Brandon Marshall who could have responded in unkind to Richardson's douche bag parting shots. He didn't and he demonstrated the character and wisdom that experience brings.

Then there is Snacks Damon Harrison who had the back of Marshall and OBJ. He used lighthearted humor to make his point. He says he's not a leader but some lead in support and do little things behind the scenes.

For a young man in the spotlight, Sterling Shepard also came up big.

Add to that Ben McAdoo who kept his demeanor in the face of a barrage of questioning about OBJ and Vernon's absence.

There's a lot of ingredients that go into a Championship Team and it's a long road to get there. It starts with the proper foundation and that foundation is built on confidence, character, integrity and passion steered by wisdom.

This was the first test of many that they will face this season. Every year the chemistry of a team changes. Sometimes it's a big change and sometimes it's considerably less. Last year was a huge change in the Coaching Staff and the influx of many new players to the team. This year...in their second year the players and the coaches know the huge opportunities that have before them and it's clear that the message is, "Distraction Has No Place In This House".

Amen

You know what I suspect is going on here? I think he's offended or upset in some way with the Signing of Marshall, the fact that Vic wasn't resigned and then drafting another pass catching option in Engram. He won't say it or comment on it but he may suspect that the Giants are looking to take passes away from him to lower his market value and that they are sending a message to him. Sounds to me like he's created another drama in his head. fwiw

I like this player as a backup and in a 4 aces package.

Big Blue Huddle / Re: Victory Cruz at it again....

His comments are nonsense but anyone who watched film can clearly see that he was often open and was never looked at. The ball was forced to certain players and routes. Cruz was not an X Receiver. I don't know why they never put Shep out there and Cruz in the Slot or Z.

I wonder if he has anything left in the tank.

Rich, looking at this early from the outside it seems to me that Geno Smith although he claims he's 100% healthy may not be ready for the start of training camp and thus the need for Josh Johnson. I think you have to look at the timing compared to the Nassib situation. Eli is much further along in his career. They need a backup who can come in to play. There is no competition between Geno Smith and Josh Johnson. It's not even close in my opinion. They certainly don't need to go into the Summer camp with 4 QB's. I see Josh Johnson as an early cut.

I think I might trade Carson for Coughlin though. 

Wait...Carson, Greer, Spagnuolo.

I've already had lunch with Harry. Twice.

Tom Coughlin, Steve Spagnuolo and Bill Belichick.

I had to put my Uncle in a Nursing Home. It's a very hard thing to adjust to. It's better if the person is mobile and can clean themselves. They put them in wheel chairs so there are no accidents and eventually they become chair dependent. There is a difference in facilities for sure. Find out the ratings and get reviews. Also, it's important that you go there very frequently. If they see some one who cares, they take better care. The person is also very happy to have company. I would go 5 times a week on average. You will get drama calls over some very small things but remember that this is their world now. Speak with the nurses at the stations every time you go and ask questions, specifically about their health.

If you didn't do so already, get a consultation with a Health Care Attorney. Most people can not afford to pay for this themselves their entire lives and they will need to go on Medicaid. The consultation and the Attorney fees are all covered in the dwindling assets that would otherwise go to the facility before Medicaid kicks in. You can buy them clothes, a TV, the funeral and the Grave Plot all ahead of time. Then the caregiver has to maintain less than $2000 of assets in their account. There is a lot to learn so if this concerns you Squibber...start learning. This may have an emotional toll on you too so be prepared for that.

Big Blue Huddle / Re: Can the Giants keep injuries down again?
« on: May 21, 2017, 10:06:13 PM »
Correlation and causation may or may not go hand-in-hand.  But the arrival of Aaron Wellman is correlated with a drastic improvement for the Giants on the injury front.  All the details of the modernization of the Giants' training program we have gone through.  So it stands to reason that Wellman was a big part of the improvement.  A better-trained team is less likely to have the soft-tissue injuries, but is probably also slightly less likely to have the fracturers and other major injuries.

I think the Giants will improve again this year, if anything, on the injury front.

This was a Fact or Fiction on Giants.com for the Receiver Corp being the deepest. This always scares me because every time I think a position is deep it becomes decimated with injury. I would say WR is the deepest and Oline or LB is the Shallowest. What do you think?

Here is the link to the video:

Big Blue Huddle / Re: Weekend Mailbag: Call for Questions

Has there been any insight into the backup plan for the possibility that Eric Flowers is not the answer at Left Tackle? Will the Giants leave him there for the season or will there possibly be a change at the Bye Week and who might that be? Or...it's not a topic for discussion from the Brass.

Do you see the Giants passing on the Fullback position again this year and is there any faith in the pass protection of this RB Group?

Who is your dark horse undrafted FA signing going into training camp to have a shot of making the final 53?

It's been my observation that when Bill Belichick cuts loose an aging player, he's pretty much done with only a few exceptions.

I would much rather have the youth fight it out for a roster spot and have a Full Back this season.
