Remember This One?

“[Santonio] said it’s all on Sanchez this time. If Sanchez trips (up), then he’ll be on the bench going, ‘Tebow! Tebow!’ like everyone else.”

Do you really need Dallas Reynolds if Walton and Richburg can play center?

What has become of Jermichael Finley?  DId the Packers re-sign him?  Not saying we should sign Finley, but whatever happened to that idea of picking up a veteran TE who would be getting cut from another team?  It seems to me we could cut two of our current TEs if we picked up one good one who couldn't make the 53 man roster from another team.


And speaking of TE/H-backs, WHY could we not just keep BOTH Hynoski and Connor?


Since the Giants primarily have always used the TE as a blocker, wouldn't it make sense to dump one or two of our current TEs in favor of keeping both Hynoski and Connor... one would play FB, and the other would have the Bear Pascoe H-back role (essentially a hybrid FB/TE).  It makes perfect sense to me, and we keep two great blockers and dump one or two of the dead weight TEs we currently have taking up roster spots.

If you have 3 RBs and 1 gets hurt (which one will) you have only 2.  You need 4.

4 TEs, I don't get especially given that none of them are any good.

Mr.F--

The NYG MUST carry 4 RB's,

as History shows,

RB Hillis will miss a few games...

RB K. Gaskins is on the 53, 4Sure....

TE Robinson gets the TURK !!! 

Another REESE DRAFT BUST !!!

P-SQUAD.... if he clears the WIRE....

S- Nat Berha gets the TURK ALSO....

Am I the only one counting 54 here?

Remember one thing - the Giants will have to carry the suspended players on their final roster, before placing them on the suspended list.  So 2 players above will have to be cut and brought back.


I think manningham and one of the tight ends end up getting cut - and gaskins or cox makes the team.  Maybe Quarles makes the team too?

I though Holiday was supposed to be a great FA signing. Goes to show you what injuries will do to a guy.

Looks pretty good to me. I'd like to see them cut one of the WR's (Manningham, probably) or the TE's (pick one...doesn't seem to matter much) in order to keep a 4th running back.

I don't agree with keeping Manningham; I hope it pans out.

@spider43 I don't agree that "the Giants have always used TE's primarily as blockers", just not true. 


But since the OL is so questionable they might need to prioritize using the TE's who are the best blockers this season.  Might as well line Dan Connor up over on the left as a TE, that dude can block.

@spider43 And speaking of TE/H-backs, WHY could we not just keep BOTH Hynoski and Connor?
You can but we only have 53 roster spots.  And neither is as good a receiver as a decent TE.

@spider43 Since the Giants primarily have always used the TE as a blocker,
We have a new offense.

@spider43 Free agent.  He was cleared to play by one Doctor but I think that others did not clear him.

@Skookaloop ... Yeah, I think Robinson SHOULD be cut, but I doubt he will be. Cutting Behre for Bowman makes logical sense as well, but since when is Reese/Coughlin very logical when it comes to roster management?

Brian Webster

You are correct. He miscounted on the offense I guess because he lists it at 26 players but choose 27 when you go through the position groups individually.

@Jeff Comerford It's all done at once...Herman and Hosley will be designated reserve/suspended and the others will be waived..I have Manningham being cut, btw

@Jeff Comerford .... I would love to keep Quarles. I kind of wish it would be at Kuhn's expense however. That guy is always injured. There needs to be some way to keep Quarles, because I can guarantee you if he is cut, some other team will snatch him up quickly before we're even given the chance to offer him a practice squad position. And even if he made it to our practice squad initially, he wouldn't remain there for long (as any team could come and snatch him away later).

@spider43 I want to keep quarrels too.  I like kuhn because he makes big plays and is very very strong but you're right he always finds an injury.
