Monday Thoughts and Musings On the Giants

Happy Monday Giants fans! Hope your weekend was good. We’re getting into draft coverage.

-Remember, we’re still looking for a draft writer. Email Me if interested, with a sample article.

-Our Prospect Profiles series is gaining steam. Lots of good prospects this year. Many who can help the Giants.

-I think the Giants will target Best Player Available in the first round. Obviously, if the best player is a QB, they won’t. But, whether it’s an offensive or defensive lineman, linebacker or something else, the Giants won’t reach for need. Never have. Never will.

-Outside linebacker is still probably the biggest need. Akeem Ayers is the best 4-3 outside linebacker, but he’s not ready to start on day 1. The Giants will look hard at him. I like Mason Foster, from Washington or Mark Herzlich, from BC. I don’t want a defensive end that is transitioning to outside backer. Doesn’t work well in the 4-3.

-Why doesn’t it work well in the 4-3, but it does work in the 3-4? Because in the 3-4, outside linebackers are asked mainly to rush the passer. There’s more coverage responsibilities in the 4-3.

-Annoyance interlude: Fire alarm went off in my building at 2 in the morning. Turned out to be a false alarm, the batteries were out or something. But, it was 2 in the morning. I was happily sleeping. Warm, in my bed. It was cold out. At 2 in the morning. Needless to say I was not happy.
