    2017 New York Giants Thread

    Giants tagged JPP today, though if a deal ultimately can't be worked out I think it's unlikely they'd then sign him for the franchise number of $17MM.

    In lesser news, last week the team re-signed Zak DeOssie to a 2 year deal.

    Now This is interesting:

    Giants Sign Geno Smith

    Is this a way of Reese saying Eli is hurt? Are they just trying to get under the Jets skin?

    But of all people why Geno Smith? Weird move by the Giants IMO.

    They re-signed Josh Johnson too, so I assume it will be one or the other (not both) if they don't draft one.

    I don't see what the problem is with Geno Smith as a backup. He is clearly more experience than Nassib who he is replacing with more upside than Johnson. Geno with better coaches and a mentor in Eli could making him a valuable piece to have if something were to happen to Eli. However it shouldn't mean that we aren't drafting a QB to eventually take over for Eli.

    Doesn't seem weird at all to have a QB with NFL experience as a backup. Just ask Raider fans how not having a semi-competent backup to Carr worked out in keeping a BYE last year and avoiding a first round playoff exit.

    Oh Eli.....

    A civil action filed against the New York Giants, CEO John Mara, and quarterback Eli Manning contains emails that plaintiff/collector Eric Inselberg claims prove Manning knowingly passed off memorabilia as game-used with the help of equipment manager Joe Skiba.

    The legal filing, submitted Apr. 11, was first reported by the New York Post. This email exchange from Apr. 27, 2010 has Manning asking Skiba for two football helmets “that can pass as game used.” The thread should be read bottom to top:

    I guess Eli has his TE to throw to now.

    A bit undersized, but I guess he is a decent run blocker as well. Would have liked to see them take an OL, but this is good.

    OL would have been good but from what I understand (and that's not much) is that this weak draft for OL so they probably didn't want to reach for one at that spot.

    True, and if there was a "sure" thing available at LT, they would have had to trade away this years and next years draft to move up to get him.

    I think TE was definitely a position of need. Seems like he has the potential to contribute right away like Shockey did.

    Re: 2017 New York Giants Thread

    Key questions as Training Camp starts, to me. Defense should be excellent again and lead the team.

    1). Will the offensive line be any good? They did not make any significant changes, so they're banking on that group development. The tackles were absolutely atrocious last season and it hurt the team. Plus McAdoo/Reese want to play this "basketball on grass" offense which devalues traditional line play somewhat. Eli took a beating last year and he's not the type of QB that can overcome poor line play (not many can, obviously).

    2). Will the offense have any diversification? It was one of the worst units in the NFL last year partly because of it was bland. They amazingly sat in one formation more than 90% of the time (the "11" with the 3WR). That was a stark contrast to when McAdoo was OC under Coughlin. Strange. You would think the additions of Marshall and Engram would help there, even if they sit in that look at the same rate again.

    3). Will there be an effective running game? I'm not sure McAdoo believes in it, but they do attempt to run at a fair clip. Need balance and a 4-minute offense in this league.

    4). Do they have a competent kicker? Punting game and return/coverage units should be fine.
