Giants Release Pierce

Speaking of people who did not outlast London Fletcher:

Giants cut Antonio Pierce

Re: Giants Release Pierce

Pierce and Fletch as ILBs, anyone, anyone? LOL. Seriously though, what happened to the Giants D? They went from being the dominant unit of the team just a season ago to this. I wonder if they will cut Osi too?

He was in the dog house towards the end of the season. Honestly, we wouldn't need him here, since we need other areas desperately.

I think they overvalue DL depth. It's important, for sure, but I could see them choosing not to move on from Osi, and starting him next year, even though he's their 3rd best DE. They also have no strong interior lineman, which makes timing their blitzes a lot harder when the opposing center (not Rabach though) can take their nose one on one and then they can't really overload one side.

It's a team that needs to find a middle linebacker, and Pierce isn't the explosive athlete he was from 2004-2007. They are essentially where we were defensively in 2006, talent-wise, but not nearly as fundamentally unsound.

Their passing offense is going to keep them in contention for the division regardless, but they certainly are not the Cowboys or the Eagles.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

I would welcome back AP anytime! Especially if we run a 3-4

Re: Giants Release Pierce

So the season of cutting begins (Donte Stallworth was too unsurprising to count).

Re: Giants Release Pierce

Wasn't he one of the ones who ran their mouth about the Skins? I'm not sure what would be better.... shunning him for running his mouth or bringing him back to watch him eat crow.

Is it possible it's because Spags left to coach Rams?

Re: Giants Release Pierce

Non-football comment:

My son, 12 and a NYG fan , and I went to NYC for his 10th Bday. He wanted a jersey so bad, I got him Pierce because of his Redskins ties. He and I went to the Fedex MNF game this year with him wearing it. So this is a bummer to me, because of that kinda weird bonding thing that happens there.

On the football side,
If Pierce came back and had the same grudge toward the Giants as he did to us, I would be ok with it. But it's not gonna make or break my off-season glee.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

Letting Pierce go to the Giants was the Skins' biggest mistake of the past decade (and that's saying a lot). He revamped their D and was the single biggest reason they won the Bowl.

Doghouse or not if they are letting him go his injury issues must be serious.

I wish him the best of luck but we don't need him here, we have to get young quick.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

Look for the Saints (Gregg Williams) or the Rams (Spags) to look at him.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

He's 32 and coming off a neck injury. I think it's also safe to say he's lost a step, perhaps a step he never had to begin with.

Re: Giants Release Pierce

Why on earth would we want to bring back an injured 31 year old 4-3 middle linebacker when we're switching to a 3-4 system? It makes absolutely no sense and would be about as stupid and short-sighted as 90% of the stuff we did when Vinny and Danny were running the show.

I said it in the other threads discussing Pierce and i'll repeat myself here. No thanks. Not even for the vet minimum in an uncapped year.
