Good AFTERNOON Giants Fans, welcome to my Wednesday. Let's take a quick look at some stories making headlines this morning:
- Cardinals WR Anquan Boldin has asked the Cardinals for a trade. From AZ Sports Hub, Vince Marotta debates who's in the right in the Boldin vs. Cardinals saga?
- After 5 arrests and 3 suspensions, WR Chris Henry is back with the Bungles.
- Warren Sapp has joined the new version of "Inside the NFL", soon to be on Showtime.
- Remember two weeks ago we brought you a story about 49ers 3rd string QB J.T. O'Sullivan being someone to keep an eye on? Well, according to the San Jose Mercury News, it looks like J.T. is going to be the starter.
- Faster security access here! Step right up, no line, no wait! Get yer NFL Fast Pass here!
- According to a new report, fantasy football is very costly to employers.
A few parting thoughts:
- If Anquan Boldin becomes available, does Jerry at least make a phone call? I think he has to. Toomer isn't getting any younger, Plax isn't going to get a whole lot healthier, and we haven't seen enough out of the young WR's. The Giants have some extra picks next year; maybe this is a way to put them to good use. Jerry has shown he isn't afraid to make a trade. I think it's at least worth a phone call.
- I don't do fantasy football, it's too time consuming and I don't want to be involved in anything that compromises my rooting interest. I know a few people that are just consumed with fantasy baseball and football, and I just can't get into it. I think that report may be a little exaggerated, but I'm sure employers do suffer a significant productivity loss from fantasy sports, like my employer does from this blog.
- The Cincinnati Bengals have got to be one of the worst franchises in sports, if not the worst. You have 10 players arrested in a 14-month span, you do the right thing with Chris Henry and release him after the proverbial "last straw", then yesterday you hand him another 2 years worth of straws? Head Coach Marvin Lewis said twice in the past month he wanted nothing to do with this guy, but owner Mike Brown signed him anyway. It's no wonder why they've never won a Super Bowl, and won't for a long time. The fish in Cincinnati definitely stinks from the head down. Hang in there for 4 more months, Marvin, a better job awaits you after your office is cleaned out in Cincy.
