patience the teams that get the biggest ata team during the fa period are seldom successful during the post season or meet expectations.


not overreacting and getting caught up in overspending is the way to go imo.

Is Devin Hester available ?

How about Steve Smith for a season? He just got cut by the Panthers

As usual Giants are letting all the good players of free agency to be taken by other teams. Probably have another dismal team

David Meggett, an Over-The-Hill Brian Mitchell, and Domenik Hixon.


Other than that, the KR/PR position has been a black hole for as long as I can remember.


A guy like Ted Ginn would be a welcome addition.

@mike23  ....  Yes.  And so is Trindon Holliday from Denver. Either of those two would be great additions, though Hester in particular would probably be pricey.

@Deelee Smith  you sound like a JETS fan.

Then again the JETS win the press conferences and the Giants win rings

@Michael Frias  agree, except for David Wilsons rookie year in which he was awesome for a good stretch of the season returning kicks.

@Peter Sinapi Dixon had one great postseason.  Other than that, all he had was speed.


And he only lasted 2 seasons.  Granted, Hixon was only a returner for 2.5 years, but I felt he was much more versatile that Dixon ever was.
