Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Giants' Julian Love finally set to start: 'Resiliency'

“I keep thinking about what my role and responsibility is,” Love said. “I’m a big proponent that everything happens for a reason. That resiliency I’ve had to have the past few years is only going to make me a better player this year. I’m trying to raise my game a lot this year by still letting the game to me, most importantly. But you know where I’m coming from: I have to keep that chip on my shoulder.”

New York Giants

2019 Grade: B+

The Skinny: The Giants had 10 picks in the draft, with only three as projected starters in 2022. They are first-round quarterback Daniel Jones, first-round defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence and fourth-round safety Julian Love. They got little else from this draft with a major miss on first-round corner Deandre Baker. Fifth-round receiver Darius Slayton has worked out.

How I did: I liked the pick of Jones, although I did say he went a little higher than I would have taken him. I also liked the pick of Lawrence, saying he could be a force. He has been good, but not a force. I questioned the pick of third-round rusher Oshane Ximines, which played true since he's been mostly a backup.

New York Giants

Grade we gave then: C

Funniest line in retrospect: “(Deandre) Baker is potentially Gettleman’s newest headache to deal with.”

Nailed. It.


“The bright lights of New York might not crush Jones, and he has time to develop – maybe as much as (suppressed laughter) three years, if you ask GM Dave Gettleman!”

Gettleman’s no longer allowed. But yeah, we’re still laughing.

Best evaluation in retrospect: I was skeptical of Daniel Jones, of course, but that’s akin to being skeptical of being served a Cyanide Colada. But we were not wrong, either — gotta make those layups. This was no time to get all cute and contrarian and whatnot.

How we did: This Giants writeup is chock full of goodies. I basically anointed Julian Love as the second coming of Jim Thorpe, so that was rich. No mention of Darius Slayton — other than just listing his name. And I compared Dexter Lawrence to Snacks Harrison, which is … interesting. But they got a C then, and maybe we were too soft on Gettleman at the time.
