Re: NY Midgets sign some has been RB named Ryan Torain

I don't think Torrain is going to help much if it's a "information" type of signing, but it's fun to think it is. Of course, didn't the Giants sign one of our wide receivers last year right before our game? Who was that guy's name again? lol

We didn't have the option offense when he was here. You can take the tinfoil hat off now.

Re: NY Midgets sign some has been RB named Ryan Torain

Ryan Torrain is very familiar with the zone run blocking scheme. This is the staple of both Shanahans' offense. This has been the bread and butter of their offense. I don't think it's going to help the giants but in addition to their rb injury issues- they also picked up Torrain to try to get some kind of competitive edge. It's not going to help, but they gotta try.

The only way we will know for sure that this is the main reason is - if the giants cut him sometime next week.

No, we didn't run the option offense when Torain was a Redskin. But he knows the other offense that is still fundamentally apart of the Redskins offense.

I dont think trying to get some sort of competitive advantage had anything to do with the Giants picking up Torrain. They picked him up because they need a RB and he's a pretty good one. Shannahan's ZBs has been around for decades. Torrain wouldnt be able to tell them anything about it they dont already know.

^ Yeah, it still bothers me that the Midgets could have signed Ryan Grant or any other running back free agent. To sign a running back who hasn't played in an entire year is questionable. Torain wasn't even apart of any NFL team's training camp.

Re: NY Midgets sign some has been RB named Ryan Torain

Ryan Torrain doesn't know anymore about the Skins offense than the Giants can't learn by watching the Skins previous games. Everyone knows what's coming with the triple option, its either a run up the middle, a run by RGIII to the outside or a playaction fake bomb to Robinson. You just have to pick what you are stopping. No mystery, just better execution.

Yup, it all comes down to RG3 and his cat and mouse game with the ball fakes.

Sometimes it's hard on TV to tell who has the ball, I can only imagine what it's like on the field.

you know, that would be an interesting stat - which offense fools the cameraman the most? it seems that several times a game, the cameraman starts to follow the wrong player. most of the time, the cameraman, recovers pretty quickly, but its still noticeable.

Re: NY Midgets sign some has been RB named Ryan Torain

Just reading this thread for the first time b/c I was of the "yeah? so what?" mentality about this signing. Imagine my surprise to see the paranoia over signing a RB who has been out of the league a year, never played with RGIII and was pretty much a one-trick pony when he was here.

I HOPE they play Torrain. I would suggest we know more about him than he does of this offense. He's a banger, with limited speed and bad vision. Essentially, he's Morris without the vision, patience or quickness.

I think Redskins4Ever has some peculiar obsession with the Giants (and I guess their fans) like he's determined to wipe them off the face of the earth, so to speak

LOL Smoot, to be honest with you, I don't have an obsession with them. I'm just extremely sick of them. But I'm not the only one who agrees that Ryan Torain being signed by the NYG is a questionable move by their front office.

Re: NY Midgets sign some has been RB named Ryan Torain

Questionable move? It's similar to us signing Grant earlier in the year. Just a move for depth due to injuries. If they don't like him they'll cut him and move on to someone else.

When did Andre Brown play for the Redskins?

Re: NY Midgets sign some has been RB named Ryan Torain

If the Giants were truly looking for insight to our offense, wouldn't it have made more sense for them to sign Grant, who actually played in this offense as opposed to Torain who hasn't?
