Boothe Happy to Be Back With Jints

The signing of Kevin Boothe today means the Giants will have their starting offensive line from last season back for 2013. GM Jerry Reese is putting the pieces back together for one more go-around.

“Kevin is a pro’s pro and we’re happy to have him back,” Reese said on Giants.com today. “His return will provide experience, versatility, competition and depth on our offensive line.”

Boothe is pleased to be back as well….

“I think you owe it to yourself to put yourself out there,” Boothe said on the Giants’ official website. “The entire time I wanted to return to the New York Giants, and fortunately they wanted me back.”

Hopefully for the Giants this is last season they have to quilt together their offensive line. They really need to get top-notch talent in the door with the odometers rising on Chris Snee, David Baas and David Diehl.

The team likes the prospects they have behind these players (James Brewer, Brandon Mosley, Matt McCants, Stephen Goodin) and OL coach Pat Flaherty is one of the best in the business at developing young linemen. But realistically, they need to get a stud every once in awhile to build around.

I would like to see a high pick used on a premium OT such as Lane Johnson, DJ Fluker, Ryan Long or Justin Pugh or a solid interior lineman such as Chance Warmack, but he’ll probably be long gone by the time the Giants pick.

It's  basic training. Let them get used to cheap shots and hard play. They will see plenty in the NHL and on a harder scale.

However retaliation is necessary.  DON'T BE RIGHT  BE SMART  Get them back the next game. One way or another make sure they pay.

Better watch, Phil.... That's Chuckles the Clown's money you're taking out of his pocket.

I'm a tad surprised some of the "posters" here haven't descended onto you like a pack of vultures unless no one is reading this thread because it's insignificant and nobody cares

@3rdname, correct. Staple also said donovon would be sent down to make roster space. I wasn't high on him his first stint but feel he has been much steadier the 2nd time around. With everyone getting healthy IMO this is our best D pairings.

Hammer-DeHann

Viz-Hickey

Amac- Donovon.

Yea, I mean I know there is a lot of size in those pairings but there is a lot of skill and passing ability, which is HUGE in our system.

@isles23 hell having vis out on the first pp and either dono or de hann out on the second pp line should be helpful....

Don't have to go far. Yesterday made a post about having a three way with the teams owner and to make sure you wear protection, I'd say thats both off topic and offensive

@Ryan Sweeney @isles23 If you ever see anything offensive, off-topic, etc., please flag it and Kevin or I will handle as we see fit. Thanks!!

@Ryan. Yup, I have no problem with people having their own opinion but he just attacks anyone that posts something he doesn't like, its ridiculous. He does make me laugh some though. He rips the idea of our prospects being good all the time but now Brock is playing well he becomes 'his boy', like he supported him the hole time.

@isles23 it makes the experience on this blog so frustrating.  everyones entitled to their opinions but this guy literally just trolls the site all day to negate anything that could even be slightly considered positive.  


just add a feature to block certain users and they can troll all they want, thanks Kevin!

@Ryan. Its amazing to me Kevin hasn't stepped in here at any point. I don't think this site is intended for hate filled homophobic posts on a daily basis.

@Zee Executioner - A new palace in Brooklyn, prospects up the wazzu, free agent signings on the horizon, and...and...and... What more can we ask for Zee?


I think we should dial it down a bit, after all, we are only on year 14 under the Emperor and year 7 under the Snowman.


We must exhibit patience, think positive, and support Chuck under the written bi-laws of the IPB Snowblowers.


I'm starting to worry about you and your numerous posts that continue this CRUSADE vs. Wang and his band of IPB locust handlers. Pipe down a bit or else! LOL

@MarioGazz no I haven't. I have seen the inferno play in Columbia. But their building was terribly old.

@judge_kevin Very good. Strome, Lee, Persson, and Mayfield are solid. Let me know if you ever wanna come down. I could leave you tix.
