Giants news, 10/31: Reaction to Seattle loss, trade deadline, more headlines

New York Giants headlines for Monday

Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Should the Giants trade for a wide receiver? If the price is right, sure | Big Blue View

BBV's Ed Valentine's stance is that GM Joe Schoen and the Giants have to remember that they are building for the long term. Their surprising success this season should not lead them to give up premium draft assets for a win-now, quick fix type player.

That, though, does not mean Schoen should do nothing. If an opportunity presents itself to potentially help the Giants over the second half of the season AND for future years, it should absolutely be considered. Provided said opportunity does not cost the Giants premium future draft assets.
