God I hate the Giants.
In all seriousness, how are they going to be better than last year with no running game and a shell of a pass rush. I can tell you from following my own team's decline that this is a recipe for disaster.
Also, stay classy Tiki.
I sort of feel like this is all my fault. I'm like the kiss of death. I get Tiki's jersey like 2002ish, and well actually he had his best years after that, but then retired and became a douche. Then I got Jeremy Shockey's around the same time as Tiki's, and he turns out to be a big douche/injury prone. Then I get Osi Umenyiora's before the 2007 season, he has a good year, we win the Superbowl, and then the pass rush commits suicide. I was thinking about getting Eli's jersey but then I could foresee a 20 interception type of season.
I think the main problem was not the DEs but definitely the DTs last year. THey need a lot more pressure up the middle. Plus, it didn't help that the linebackers were pathetic, and the defense really deflated when Phillips went down. On the bright side, the WRs were good (steve smith <3) and they're young, so hopefully they get better. I also don't believe that the GIants have no running game. Their RBs are not used properly. Jacobs should be pounding the ball in the beginning, and then Bradshaw should come in and switch it up. It was weird the way they were used last year. We'll see what happens in the draft. Unfortunately, I'll be in Germany, but I'll have to try and keep up online if I have a chance.
I always get so excited for the draft, but then never make it past the beginning of round 2. Maybe the way it is broken up this year will let me maintain interest.
Patriots are loaded for this draft. I hope they actually make their picks, instead of trading down forever like usual.
