New York Giants make final roster cuts for 2008 season

August 30, 2008

The NY Giants made their final roster cuts, and there were a few items of note but nothing enormously surprising.

Brandon London is probably the biggest casualty, but my guess is that he is picked up by another team off waivers in very short order.

Getting John Carney off the geriatric ward for FG kicking duties is just part of the way the wacky world of FB works. I think I dislike FG kickers almost as much as head coaches.

The Giants for now kept FIVE RBs, choosing to stay with Droughns AND Ware. (Hedgecock does not count, he is a FB.)

Good for David Carr for surviving and making the most of his new opportunity. Between Woodson gtg cut and Wright going on IR, he is prominently there as the backup.

I do not think Guy Whimper will be challenging the slow feet of David Diehl anytime soon.. he was cut.

1) Kicker Jay Feely of the Dolphins was cut in favor of a rookie.

2) Plax is back in practice, sort of. I am so grateful not to be a beat writer that has to follow every minutae of this guy’s soap opera.

3) London and Moss seem to be doing well enough, be it the first game or cumulative practices. Tyree is in trouble if he does get back into pads soon. Wonder suggests that with the WR numbers being what they are, they can either put Tyree or Manningham on (season-ending) IR.

4) Injuries are injuries, but one of Wonder’s biggest AVOIDs of the 1st round of the NFL Draft in April was OT Chris Williams, whom Wonder called soft, not a road grader. Now he is out 10+ weeks, and some think he’ll miss the entire season.

Tomorrow Wonder-ific comments on everything around the league. Do not miss that post.
