Competition/back up for MLB Griesen

Friday, April 2nd, 2004

The Giants (and other teams) went to see some Purdue guys work on March 26. If you’re curious about what happens on a pro-day, here’s a cool run down.

The reason I bring it up is Niko Koutouvides, a middle linebacker projected to go in the third round. I like him and could see the Giants taking him in the third if they don’t address this team need in round 2.

Toomer’s new contract +

Friday, April 2nd, 2004

I like that the Giants have signed Amani Toomer long term. Sure, he has been criticized for dropping a few passes in the end zone last season, but overall, he has clearly been the Giants most consistent wideout for the past few years.

He’s no Randy Moss, but the Vikings proved that one Randy Moss doesn’t win you the superbowl. That’s not to say a team doesn’t need good wideouts. The Eagles proved that it’s hard to win without some talent at the position. That’s why T.O. makes them the team to beat (again) in the NFC.

Speaking of T.O., Will Peterson says he can handle him. McNabb’s detractor’s say he can’t get Owens the ball anyway. I don’t know why they say that. McNabb got him the ball in the pro bowl. Anyway, we’ll see if the Giants corners can cover Owens and if Mcnabb can get Owens the ball.

What to do with #4 draft pick

Thursday, April 1st, 2004

I had been planning to write about how the Giants should stick with #4 (not trade up for Eli) and hope Gallery or Ben Roethlisberger was still there. If not I had been planning to write about how the Jints should trade down, pick up another 2nd round pick, and go after Tommie Harris in round 1.

However after reading Tommie Harris’s NFL.com analysis it seems far from certain that he has what it takes to be a dominating DT in the NFL.

Maybe I’m moving to the “take Sean Taylor” if Gallery and Roethlisberger are gone camp.
