A Final Farewell to the old Giants Stadium

March 7, 2010

The New Meadowlands Stadium will open for the 2010 NFL season. There will be a concert there long before that during the summer. It’s tough to see them tearing it down. I have a lot of great memories attached to that old stadium. Both inside watching the game and the tailgating before the game were equally entertaining. I can’t even count how many times I have had the pleasure of attending Giants games. I have been in the best seats in the house to the worst seats they had up top. I’ve been to the NFL Draft party they throw there and on the field itself. I’ve been in the locker room and toured the building. I am glad that I did all of those things before they tore it down. I felt the same way about visiting Monument Park in the old Yankee Stadium before they built the new one. What are some of your memories from the old Giants stadium?

Giants start making roster cuts over weekend

March 7, 2010

The Giants cut safety Aaron Rouse and cornerback Londen Fryar. I was not surprised at all by Aaron Rouse getting cut and I’m embarrassed to say I don’t recall even hearing about this Londen guy. It looks like there will still be some tweaking to the secondary with these moves. Bringing in safety Antrel Rolle was a good first move, followed by these cuts. I expect the team to be aggressive in finding another safety. Reports said the G-Men were speaking to no less then 4 safeties before signing Rolle. Darren Sharper’s name floated around more then the others. Will Jerry Reese add another cornerback into his game plan? Who will be brought in to fill the MLB position? We also need to look at backup QB’s now that David Carr is a 49er.

David Carr seeks golden opportunity in San Francisco

March 7, 2010

David Carr is a San Francisco 49er. This is something I did not want to happen. I liked the idea of having a reliable backup QB in the wings such as Carr. Now we will need to bring in another QB to backup Eli Manning. Rhett Bomar is the only other QB listed on the roster. There have been some rumors about Mark Brunell possibly coming to town. I’ve heard things about Michael Vick and Jeff Garcia. There have been a bunch of other rumors but Tom Coughlin will no doubt provide a veteran backup QB for Eli. Eli is still an iron man, having never missed a start in his career. This team seems to be going through more of a change then I anticipated.

Who do you think the Giants will end up with as a backup QB?

Rolle excited to play with Kenny Phillips

March 7, 2010

After Antrel Rolle signed with the Giants, he expressed how excited he is to be playing with Kenny Phillips. Both attended the University of Miami (The U) and seem to have been friends before the deal got done. There is no question that with a healthy Phillips in the mix, the G-Men have one of the best safety combos in the league. All of the Giants fans out there are pulling for Kenny Phillips to make a speedy and full recovery. Reports came out last month saying that he was ahead of schedule in his rehab. That is good news for the team and fans. As I have said repeatedly, I still believe that Big Blue will grab another safety in the 2010 NFL Draft. As much as we love Phillips, as of right now and today, he is still out of the mix. The team must prepare itself, as if Phillips will not be on the field. Even though, we all hope he will be.
