NEW YORK – Hello Giants Fans, the 2010 NFL regular season begins in two days and the Giants are just about ready to get down to business. The G-Men signed QB Sage Rosenfels and RB Darius Reynaud, while they were making their cuts to get the roster down to fifty three players. I’m still in shock over the team letting DT Jay Alford go.
The Giants actually made a trade to get the return specialist Reynaud and backup QB Rosenfels from the Vikings, something very unlike GM Jerry Reese to do, since he took over for former GM Ernie Accorsi. I’m not here to report this news to you because it happened a couple of days ago. I’m writing this article to get some feedback on what you think of the transactions and if you agree with what the team did. I’m not sure how I feel about it yet.
I have to be honest, I was surprised to see Big Blue waive QB Rhett Bomar. I thought the guy played pretty well during the preseason. I’m glad that he cleared waivers and was signed to the Giants practice squad. He managed the game well and was not afraid to run the ball if the situation arose. I was equally surprised to see QB Sage Rosenfels signed to the team. I watched the video interview with him on Giants.com and found him to be a level headed guy who is eager to learn the playbook. He is a veteran who has been around for a while but hopefully he will not be needed as QB Eli Manning continues his Iron Man streak for starting consecutive games. He is currently third on that list behind only QB Brett Favre and his brother QB Peyton Manning. Rosenfels will be Manning’s only backup since the team placed QB Jim Sorgi on the IR list last month.
I’m not sure what to make of RB Darius Reynaud yet because I don’t know much about him. I had to look up what he has done and from what I see, it looks like he will be an upgrade to special teams that has been decimated by injuries early into the 2010 season. I’m placing my faith in the front office on this one and would not be surprised if Reynaud had a very good year. I was surprised the team let RB Andre Brown go. With Jacobs and Bradshaw getting over recent injuries, I can easily see this becoming a problem area if the guys can’t remain healthy.
What do you think about the G-Men trading draft picks to the Vikings for QB Rosenfels and RB Reynaud? What draft picks would be a fair?
