Re: RI: Jeremy Bridges agrees to terms

We might be getting this guy at the right time.

I hate to look to our arch rival for examples, but many were shocked when the Tuna started Marc colombo a few years ago. He was a fairly highly regarded player (2nd round I believe) w/the Bears but had injury problems I think. Whatever the case, he'd fallen into obscurity then came to dallas & won a job which he's had ever since. He's done really well there too.

I hope Bridge or M. Williams has a similar story here. We don't need a pro bowl level RT, at this point it would just be great to see someone play the position close to the way Jansen did before his injuries.

Re: RI: Jeremy Bridges agrees to terms

^^ Seriously. I am not looking for an All Pro, just someone who is a legitimate NFL starter who can handle the regular joe DE's 1 on 1 on every play. Anything beyond that is gravy. Last year, neither Heyer or Jansen was capable of doing that.

This is Bridges. He was a 2yr starter for the Panthers(one at rt, the other at guard). He will be a good pick up for us. With this and if we can get Williams to be half of what he use to be, we will be much improved on the o-line. Bridges will provide more versatility, if Williams is moving like Doc Walker is saying, this could be an area of strength instead of a weakness.

Red, you are right.. However the chance of Bridges AND Williams playing pretty good are kinda slim.. I believe Bridges do have a chance to be pretty good player for us, but I'm not sure if I can say same thing for Williams..

I have soft spot for Heyer, I believe he can be a decent RT this year.. He definitely has potentials to be good RT but he seems to have difficult time to absorb everything Buges is teaching..

Re: RI: Jeremy Bridges agrees to terms

I would like to see our line stay healthy for a season. I know this is highly age related, but people do realize the Giants O-line has been one unit for 3 years. That would be great. The O-line, and the D-line, is not just individual players but also a cohesive unit. a side note, just got a text that Levi Jones was just released!!

If you hang around the wrong people or find the wrong part of town in any city you will get into trouble.

P.S. As far as the strip clubs, I think they are better in Charlotte. You can have lap dances (If there is a club in DC with lap dances let me know!). And definitely no pasties like the Commonwealth...
Funny, but very true which is why I hope he's grown up because there are more people in DC to piss you off (sometimes). Bro, I haven't been to the club in like 4 yrs which is ironically where I met my fiance'e.:confused:

I was in Jersey for a B-party a couple of weeks ago. All nude and great lapdances and BYOB. I fell in love twice in less than 3 hours.... ha ha

Re: RI: Jeremy Bridges agrees to terms

Well, he does seem to have a firm grasp on the obvious. In describing the two incidents that occurred in Carolina, Bridges said:

"Things happen and I can't blame nobody but myself. If I wouldn't even have been in that situation then I wouldn't have been in the situation."
washingtonpost.com

He seems to think that his being in the situation resulted from his being in the situation. Actually, it is somewhat zenlike. Maybe he is presenting us with a koan that challenges us to think beyond his situation...

Or, maybe he is just a meathead.

He is 326 and plays football so meathead is probably more accurate. I talked to a Panthers fan who was disappointed that he was gone (despite the issues). He said that Bridges is a pretty good player.

Oh, that is very Zen-like! Bridges obviously can serve as the roshi for the OL, instilling the line with deep Buddhist values! Then the OL can block without blocking and we can win the Super Bowl by not winning it.
