Hey everyone, sorry I haven’t got a post done in a while. I have been really busy with school and sports. Anyway, I wanted to talk about the New York Giants season and some offseason moves they should make before the draft as well as the draft.
The Giants season can be described in one word, turnovers. The Giants led the league in turnovers with 42 yet finished 10-6 just missing the playoffs. Eli Manning was the one to blame for most of them with 25 interceptions and multiple fumbles. Imagine if this team didn’t kill themselves with these turnovers. They could have easily been a 12-4 team with a bye in the playoffs. Here are some offseason moves and acquisitions the New York Football Giants should make to become a more complete football team. First off the Giants should get rid of their own trouble in the locker room by trading away RB Brandon Jacobs. Even though Jacobs was a loud-mouth and a baby about his playing time in New York, trading him away would make the leadership role even worse for the team because he was the one to pump his team up before the games. Back on topic, Jacobs most likely destination would be the Detroit Lions who need a power back to complement Jahvid Best. Big Blue would probably only receive back a 3rd or 4th round pick in this years up coming draft but that could be used to draft a solid lineman. The only free agent I would love the Giants to pick up on is Leon Washington. Big Blue’s special teams was dreadful this year and Leon would be a huge improvement. I also believe he would be perfect is because he has the experience that all the returners on the Giants don’t have. Will Blackmon and Darius Reynaud were terrible and anyone would be an upgrade over them.
Next I would like to talk about the players Jerry Reese should be eyeing down in the draft. I know it’s still early but here are some players I would love the Giants to draft in the first 3 rounds
1st Round- Mike Pouncey ——- He would be an immediate help for the Giants line that is getting old and banged up. Also both the starting center and guards are coming off majors surgery which means this would add depth to these positions.
2nd Round- Ryan Williams—— If the Jacobs trade goes through, Williams would split carries with Bradshaw because both of them are not every down backs. His speed and size would definitely help complement Bradshaw and help get the Giants back to that hard nosed, running the football team.
3rd Round- Casey Matthews—– I know Casey is not the same player as his brother but sure is he good. His whole family has succeded in the NFL so why not him next? Casey would compete with Clint Sintim and Keith Bulluck for a starting spot in a very weak linebacker corp.
I will be back in a couple weeks with a better evaluation on the draft. Enjoy
