"What you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul." - The principal
I read through nearly every thread on this blog year round. Due to the time difference I experience in Japan I don't frequent the posting as often as I used to, nor as often as I'd like to. However I have noticed in my 3+ years here that the preseason brings a new bunch of Giants fans who simply are not as educated or well versed in football or how a roster can be and should be shaped. Stick around and learn by all means, this is a fantastic blog. By no means am I an expert on this subject, but I do know a hell of a lot more than I used to.
My issue with some of the posting on this site is evidence and or knowledge to back this evidence up. This is not Yahoo Sports or ESPN. At least have some understanding of what you are trying to get across. Some facts to back up the drivel you just decided to post on this blog. The knowledge base here has been very strong in the past and at times the comments get watered down to a lack of basic understanding. You have to have strong fundamentals to get on the field so I encourage you, the posters here to use the same fundamentals when posting. Examples...If a player has been injured why assume that he is not a good player, or that he is lazy or injury prone. Perhaps it was a freak accident. If a player has been buried on the depth chart for a season, or even a few seasons he isn't very good. Consider the fact the Giants are the Super Bowl Champions and have a very deep roster. Some of the guys on our bench could be starting for other teams around the league. If a guy has one good game or drops a punt it does not define him as a player. The game of football requires you to have a short memory, I encourage you all to as well. Except for those Lombardi trophyies you can always remember them. Perhaps this post is too optimistic. Perhaps JR and TC have no clue what they are doing and all the armchair GMs here could put together a better roster. But if your going to post something try to use a little thought process instead of this guy made one mistake and hasn't shown anything yet. There is a reason this guy is on the team, and there is a reason that guy was drafted. The Giants develop their young players. They have that luxury. The reason for this is because they are an excellent franchise who understands that you can't just throw the rookies and 2nd/3rd year players to the wolves. We don't need to do that. We are not the Washington Redskins, the Oakland Raiders, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Giants show patience and allow the players to develop. After taking home the Lombardi this past season I encourage you all to show a little patience with the young guns because that shit pays off in the long run.
