Good morning, New York Giants fans!
“Russ wants New York.”
Those words from Tyrann Mathieu have set off hysteria in parts of the Giants fan base.
There’s nothing wrong with dreaming, even if the dream is silly. It’s OK to wish upon a star, imagine the unimaginable, or hope against hope.
So go ahead and buy your Russell Wilson Giants jersey, because it’s your money to waste. No matter what the rumor mill says, no matter what Tyrann Mathieu Tweets, no matter how many times Jimmy Fallon asks him, Russell Wilson is not going to be the quarterback of the Giants. Not this year. Not next year. Not a few years from now.
And probably not ever.
That’s Ralph Vacchiano throwing cold water of those Wilson dreams.
Haskins probably isn’t going to be a Giant, but this is what teams do before the draft. They gather as much information as possible before making critical decisions.
This is a good question. Mike Freeman tries to answer it:
After speaking to a half-dozen front-office executives and coaches, some answers are becoming clear.
”Can he move enough when [the] pocket changes?” one NFC coach asked in a text. “Great kid! Will learn. Agility concerns and limited exposure [with] down-the-field throws.”
This is one of the smartest coaches (and people) I’ve ever known. If he is expressing these concerns, then my guess is this is an emerging—or already established—leaguewide belief about Haskins.
“I like him a lot,” the coach added. “He’ll learn but will take time. Best place would be a [year] or two behind a veteran starter. A good comparison would be Jacoby Brissett. I loved Brissett. I’m a little concerned about Haskins.”
Of course Dave Gettleman, with two first-round picks and a habit for not doing what the media or the fan base expect him to do, is one of them.
"It's simple," Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Vance Joseph said earlier this offseason. "It's a passing league. You have to have the quarterback you can win with and guys who affect the quarterback. And if a guy has the right makeup in how he works, those pass-rush skills can translate quickly."
The Giants will pick at least one, maybe more, in the upcoming draft.
