Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

I wish that the Skins had looked at Andrews. When healthy, and not suffering from depression, he looked like the second coming of Steve Hutchinson.

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

Too injury-prone, but I bet the Eagles will reach a point this season where he was still there, or available.


Philly is losing a lot of talent within the division. That can't bode well.

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

This guy is a gamble for any team that signed him. Will be interesting to see if he can perform to anything like his old self. He is well removed from those probowl years at this point.

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

I would have liked us to have brought him into training camp. And im not thrilled about the Giants having him. At least he missed all of their training camp so i wonder if the Giants plans are to have him start?

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

I understand wanting to try him out, but it seems like we have taken enough flyers on these types of players and I can't think of too many that have panned out. We will see what happens with J. Brown, after that I would rather have blue collar guys trying to make the team than a guy who has the talent to be the starter but not the mental makeup. It helps that I am ok with our OG situation in nearly any possible line combination.

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

You are not going to get any arguement from me C.

Like you stated we have enough of those types of players on our roster, and at this point I really am starting to like some of the depth we already have here. No need to bring in a project like Andrews, becasue that is just what he is. He would take time away from the Oline that has been here all offseason excluding JBrown of course.

Any word as to Browns availablity on Saturday night?

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

He's injury prone and a major head case. There's a reason a relatively young former pro-bowler wasn't on anyone's roster until now. Nothing to see here.

Re: Giants add lineman Shawn Andrews

Too injury prone, has depression issues and his commitment to football has been questioned for years. That's 3 strikes right there.

Ouch. Let's just wait and see about AH, he is a stud and will get this thing going in the coming weeks.

Comparing a guy who has been out of football and wanted to quit the game to a guy who wants to play is wrong.

Andrews has had his problems but I don't think he ever quit(retire) ,he has had a back problem and AH has had a knee problem ,Andrews has a actual illness diagnosis of Depression..treatable big AH has a ........,well it's not diagnose...yet but he has something, so yeah they are alike but SA only cost the Giants a guarantee of 250,000 signing bonus been to 2 pro bowls and at least will help as a back up or with the younger linemen.

Why the arbitrary need to compare Andrews to Hanyesworth? Anything to feel better about the signing I guess.
