Players of note, Chad signs with Bill, and more Plax

August 9, 2008

Shocking… Pennington signs with the Dolphins. Well, thank goodness the Giants couldn’t be their own worst enemy here. I hope and trust that they really did not have that much interest, and thus lost once the price starting going up beyond ZERO. Stop getting distracted and spend your money on Burress already. All Burress does is win games for you. The Redskin game (W3) where he turns a simple pass into the flat to win the game? The Jets game where he essentially does the same exact same thing? Carr or Wright can throw that pass just as well as Pennington or Manning, and let Burress do the rest. And if he did not sprain his mcl 6 days before the Super Bowl he may have won us the game (more) easily. All he did in that game was catch the winning TD after a typically smooth juke, all on one leg. The Giants are concerned about his injuries… simply incentivize the contract for games played. Besides, he is better on one leg than most are on two. And he was healthy in 2005 and 2006, starting 15 of 16 games in each season. He has started 46 of 48games for the Giants, so how can you complain? That he is injured? Well, then all he does is play hurt, which is… what they ask the man to do! Let’s go already.

After one game of preseason, some players who were singled out for good play: Moss, London, Carr, Wright, Phillips, Blackburn.

Coughlin on Phillips: “He had a very productive game,” Coughlin said. “You see the performance and you obviously go ahead and visualize his further development and how he can help you as the season goes on.”

Giants sign Carr

March 13, 2008

Giants sign Carr to 1 yr $1M deal with incentives.This is a nice move. The Giants will see if Carr can pick up the offense better than he did at Carolina and if they like him they will extend his contract at midseason. He is clearly a better and more credible QB than Lorenzen or Wright. If he gets adequate protection, he has plenty of weapons with this offense and will do better than his previous passer ratings suggest. This is an upgrade with zero cap risk, a call option, a very nice move by Reese.
