Anytime there is a speed rusher C. Samuels has a problem. ie Peppers, Simeon Rice

I think it's the NYC papers fueling that. Strahan has made no inclination that he'd even be interested in coming back. He went as far as to reiterate "I'm really done." when all the Favre stuff was going on. He'd have nothing to come back for, they won the SB, he's already a Hall of Famer.. I can't see it.

I bet he has several million reasons to come back for one last payday. Plus didnt his ex wife just take half of his S?

It seems to me that the Giants should have no worries about plugging in a backup to start, and then just picking someone up off the street to replace the backup.
This is just another passive aggressive attempt to cover your man-crush on Jason Taylor and other elderly Skins linemen who haven't gotten the job done. <sigh> Will you never learn. Skins Front Office = Bad. Every other Front Office (except Cincinatti) = Good.

Seriously though, Smoot's right. Osi's injury just goes to show that teams simply can't plan for every contingency and get starter depth at every position. It's a trade off. I am betting our RB and CB depth are the envy of more than a few teams. This sucks for the Giants. They may have the depth to cover but losing Osi and Strahan is simply something you can't plan for.

Sorta like us losing our starting right tackle and starting guard <cough, cough>.

Well, according to a source close to him he would consider it for the right price. Of course he's staying quiet on it right now, but you would have to believe he would at least entertain an offer.

Re: Osi Done For The Year

Good news for the Skins tackles, by the way I thought I remember hearing that the Giants were interested in acquiring Taylor before the skins got him and that was one of the reasons everything moved so fast. It makes me glad that our serious injuries happened early rather than later.

Re: Osi Done For The Year

Do you really want him back? And what do you have after you pay the 8+ Mill. According to ESPN, he has not been working out..................so he's out of shape, and certainly NOT in football shape.
How long does it take get in shape and contribute?

.....Last year, he blew off most of camp, and was fine. BUT, he was working out on his own. This year he has apparently NOT been working out on his own.

Yeah, I think she made out pretty well. But still, he retired anyway, and I'm sure that Fox is not going to pay him minimum wage for the deal it made with him. Granted, it's not the $8 million that they Giants are allegedly offering (for one season), but he's not so hurting that he can't just get up and go to Greece for a vacation (which is what he is doing right now, right?).

Re: Osi Done For The Year

Court is going to rule on his divorce settlement amount tommorow.

The more she gets the more likely he'll sign, since she won't get a penny of this contract.

Just my cynical opinion.

Re: Osi Done For The Year

I think the odds are increasing by the minute of MS making a return to the Giants, if the coin is right.....?

ESPN - Report: Strahan, Giants discussing return; Kiwanuka moved to DE - NFL

Re: Osi Done For The Year

If the coin is right...what a f*cking joke.

If we ever have a life-long player who dicks around our team as much as Strahan has dicked his team around the last few years and then when we need him the most his reply is "show me the money" I hope to god Joe Gibbs drives up from NC and puts a bullet in that guy's head. How about some respect, honr and loyalty to the organization that you played for your entire career. The org that made you a name. I know money is the name of the game in today's game but I do get the distinct feeling that most players do enjoy the game and have enough respect for the game that they wouldn't attempt to extort their own team.

That comment left me scratching my head. Why exactly would Gibbs drive up from NC to put a bullet in the head of a retired player, and for a rival team?

ps- there is NOTHING wrong with naming your price. Strahan doesn't need the Giants, the Giants need Strahan.

I thought the comment was a bit extreme, but I think he meant if a Redskin ever did that
