Explain your choices for an eventual cut and the Lineup of your choice. For example will Flowers eventually succeed or fail? Will Pugh and or Richburg be re-signed? This is not specific to this year but let's say within the next 2 years.

I love the talent and I'm glad he's a Giant, but at the same time I'm aware that he's very much Desean Jackson in a blue jersey and if he were an Eagle or Cowboy we'd despise him.

You're probably right. The Hot Dog act is getting old and tired. Some of these athletes become motivated for various reasons. If you take away what drives them, do you emasculate them? I thought Coughlin and now McAdoo were very careful with this ego and they didn't and don't want to break him. He will probably get it at some point on his own. Look who's the squad leader now... Marshall.

Great question. What was their answer?

The event is in June in NYC. When I registered for the tickets, they asked for a question submission. It related to the OP so that's why I shared it.

Big Blue Huddle / Re: Bobby Hart priority over Fluker and Jerry?

Shelf-life ending in 5...4...3...2...1

Blastoff.

Too bad because he was banned once before under another name and we gave him a second chance. I was hoping he would make it work this time.

I think I might trade Carson for Coughlin though. 

Wait...Carson, Greer, Spagnuolo.

I've already had lunch with Harry. Twice.

Last year, Taylor started in all 16 regular season games for the first time in his career. The former fourth-round pick had 4.5 sacks and 28 total tackles on the year, but the advanced numbers at Pro Football Focus portrayed him as the second-worst qualified edge defender in the NFL. For what it’s worth, in the prior year, Taylor had 7.0 sacks and an overall score of 68.5 – a significantly better showing than his 39.1 mark in ’16.

Taylor is not a starting-caliber player at this point in his career and that suits the Giants just fine as they arguably have the league’s most fearsome DE duo in Jason Pierre-Paul and Olivier Vernon. There are a number of reserve DEs under contract behind them including Romeo Okwara, fifth-round rookie Avery Moss, and Owa Odighizuwa, but there has been some chatter this offseason about Odighizuwa stepping away from football. Right now, it seems like Odighizuwa will play, but if he has a change of heart, someone like Taylor could serve as an insurance policy.

Big Blue Huddle / Bobby Hart priority over Fluker and Jerry?
« on: May 22, 2017, 10:34:31 AM »
"The Giants did not allocate many resources to bolstering a middling offensive line, pointing to the incumbents being given another chance. Although the team added guard/tackle D.J. Fluker on a lower-level deal, Paul Schwartz of the New York Post believes Bobby Hart will still be given every chance to keep the right tackle job. This arrangement could potentially pit Fluker against recently re-signed right guard John Jerry, whom Pro Football Focus assessed as enjoying a bounce-back season in 2016. The 22-year-old Hart being a priority over putting Fluker and Jerry in the lineup together would be interesting given his history as a former seventh-round pick and a player whom PFF graded as the No. 67 full-time tackle last season."

Big Blue Huddle / Justin Pugh discusses contract situation
« on: May 22, 2017, 10:29:12 AM »
"The whopping dollars allocated to UFA guards this offseason stands to impact teams’ negotiations with impending free agents at a position that’s seen its value rise. Justin Pugh is entering his contract year and looks ready to cash in after seeing players with similar profiles do so in March."

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.

I hope Adams shows enough of an improvement that they can cut Tye. Nothing against Tye mind you, but they need improvement at that position and I think Tye has the lowest ceiling.
I would have to agree. He was expected to take a nice leap forward last season after a very solid rookie campaign. For whatever reason, he regressed.

I submitted this question to the Giants for the Town Hall event in NYC.

""Last season great improvement was made in reducing time lost on the field due to player injury. In review, what key components will be carried forward and what adaptations are seen as necessary to continue to maximize peak physical performance while keeping soft tissue stress, concussion and season ending injury in check."

We have to know that at this point with a playoff ready team...actually the most playoff ready since 2011 and possibly the best since 2008, an injury to Eli kills this team's chances completely. Gino Smith ain't driving this team with no training camp under his belt.

As for TE, it was the weakest position last season and now with Engram, Ellison and Adams in his second year, this looks like a pretty solid group. Will Tye may even become a cut.
