I don't have time to make my case now but I needed to say that Edwards would add an important piece to our young receiving corps . A veteran receiver who could work with our young corp and help motivate, not to mention the talent he would bring. His stats with the Jets were more than respectable and he would be a good new weapon for Eli.He's a proven solid route runner and and strong on the vertical run. Obviously the Giants were looking for a veteran receiver (hence, the Plaxico meeting or was that just a half hearted attempt for the "we owe it to Plaxico" publicity...I honestly think that was not the case, It' not how the Giants do things..we have more integrity than most. So what are we waiting for? Let's make a move for Edwards. Can we afford him.? We didn't empty the bank on Bradshaw, so is it economically feasible? I think so!
Every year for three years I here about how good our young receiving team is and how much depth we have and how receiver is not a big concern of ours. After what happened to our receiving corps last year your comfortable with going into the season with only 2 proven strong starters? (Nicks and Manningham)
Hixon who I've always liked and had high hopes for, I can't bank on anymore. Is he that much of a lock to stay healthy after the long and arduous rehab he went through? I don't really have to say much more about the situation with our remaining receivers because I know you guys see the picture. Last thing, I wish the best to Victor Cruz (who I believe is healthy this year) on having a great camp and who in the near future will hopefully add another weapon to the Giants receiving core!!
I guess I made my case after all and will pay the price in the morning..but it was worth it ! I was obsessing about this all day and would talk to anyone who would listen to me.
It's gonna be a very tough year my fellow giant fans but not tough enough to keep us out of the playoffs!
Eli will kick ass this season,
