    I'm curious if the Giants would consider going full on tank at this point a la Raiders last year. They could get a ransom for Barkley and lesser sums for a few guys like Engram. Write this off as an 1-15 year (they'll still beat the Redskins), have Eli retire and get some draft picks for this year and next.

    I assumed that this is what they're doing. But I think their fans would go completely insane if they traded Barkley.

    Could their GM afford to? Gruden has a 10-year contract and Marc Davis has a blind faith in him. He was able to get rid of anyone in the organization he did not want to work with, or coach. Does that situation exist in the G-Men organization?

    Nah. Barkley and Engram are going nowhere. Eli will still be QB for a year or two. I honestly don't even think that they will go after Haskins if he's available when it gets to #6 pick. I think they go defensive line.

    For the giants sake I hope so. I mean...if next year or even the year after that (after the inevitable 4-12 or similar shit record) they fire the coach and/or GM, it would only make the whole ordeal more hilarious/tragic.
    No humor please, we're skittish.

    First Trump becomes president, now the Browns are projected for the super bowl. Could this be signs of the end of the world.

    You don't have to worry. Stephen A. says the Browns aren't a Super Bowl contender, so we can be sure that they don't have a chance.

    It's not a done deal, but it looks like The Fins are are winning the tug-o-war. Who knows.

    You can't go home again..so Teddy should avoid the Phish.

    If he needs to leave the Aints, he should bide his time until Captain CapSpace fails miserably (as is his destiny) and Teddy B can make a triumphant return to the Vikes (and I can wear my Teddy jersey again).

    Re: Cozy's Barkley assertion
    Never should have drafted him, but now that they have him, he's awesome you traded obj and you're rebuilding? Time to trade now. As in yesterday. But as Klonker said - not gonna happen.
    No one plans to take the path that brings you lower

    So, New Orleans has apparently re-structured Brees' deal, which usually involves deferring money. His cap hit next year will reportedly be $41 million.

    I don't know how he makes ends meet.
    Man you guys take awfully seriously a bunch of pampered, spoiled twenty and thirty something year old jocks earning millions of dollars to play a game running up and down a field. Why do you care so much about these guys to the point of arguing with each other. Do you think they care an iota about you?

    The Dolphins low-balled Teddy. Ah well, why would he want to come to a team that's tanking?

    Giants sign Golden Tate. Not anywhere near the talent of OBJ, but a very good slot receiver...I'll take it.

    NFL suspends Kareem Hunt for 8 games. 2 less than I was expecting. We'll see the 2-headed monster backfield for half the season, then.

    Interesting, after he said that he only has limited time left in the NFL and he wants to win.

    Many people's mind can be changed with money. The giants certainly overpaid him. I can't imagine another team with a competitive offer.
