LG in NYC : 4:15 pm : link
2 big misses. He has no equity with the team. Could make nice statement about accountability to everyone else."

This is not exactly a big shake up. I would have at the least cut Brown. Maybe that's coming. Something needs to wake up this team.

Maybe Coughlin  
mikeygiants : 10/1/2013 5:14 pm : link
has come around in his latter years and decided that he likes Cox.
Anyone think that this is Jerry Reese

We'll never know how many return coverage blunders were avoided with Scott kicking touchbacks.

Blue Hurricaine has got it!  
HomerJones45 : 10/1/2013 5:28 pm : link
a Machiavellian move on Reese's part to force the doddering coach and OC to give up on Scott.

You did it; you smoked him out. No one can get anything past you.
Marty those two missed kicks were huge

For this teams fragile psyche.
the team deflates after Josh Brown's missed field goals

2 straight games this has happened...strange, very strange.
Huge misses is correct  
Jimmy Googs : 10/1/2013 5:32 pm : link
I think both FGs were to tie or give us the lead going into halftime. And games in which we were getting the second half kickoff too.

We don't have a lot going for us right now so a little Momentum and Confidence could go a long way.
Would love for some of these football discussions to take place  
BlueHurricane : 10/1/2013 5:33 pm : link
At a bar somewhere instead of behind the keyboard. I usually type on this board as if the people I am interacting with are standing right in front of me. Wish others would do the same.

You don't think it is possible that Jerry Reese got fed up as we all have with seeing Scott take carries form his first round pick? That is that far fetched???
Good move.....  
Dry Lightning : 10/1/2013 5:35 pm : link
Scott showed something unforgiveable in a third year player. Fear. He admitted he "choked" in the first game, and I thought he played scared after that. That can happen to a rookie, not to a vet. He had to go.
AcidTest : 10/1/2013 5:37 pm : link
bad as Cordle is, at least he knows the system. Maybe Baas is going on IR, and they don't trust Goodin.
I don't think BH is onto anything definite there  
jcn56 : 10/1/2013 5:37 pm : link
but the fact remains that we just cut a young RB who was taking away reps from a 1st round draft pick of a couple of years ago. It does raise questions about the strategic direction of the running game.
I think  
Eric from BBI : Admin : 10/1/2013 5:39 pm : link
this has more to do with Snee.

Again, Reynolds has experience at guard.
I agree  
Sneakers O'toole : 10/1/2013 5:41 pm : link
this is about the line, it's not about Scott other than he was one of the more vulnerable players on the roster.
Maybe Reese cut Scott to force Coughlin and/or Gilbride  
SB : 10/1/2013 5:44 pm : link play Wilson more. Recall that Reese told Coughlin that he needed to play Bradshaw more towards the end of 2007.
AcidTest : 10/1/2013 5:46 pm : link
what happens:

(1) Reynolds is signed.
(2) Snee goes on IR.
(3) Coughlin benches Brewer in favor of Reynolds.
(4) Coughlin plays Diehl at LG and Boothe at center.

...or what everyone else already said

Jimmy Googs : 4:22 pm :
Coaches and Reese made a clear mistake with Scott making this roster. I was fairly surprised Torain didn't get kept before Scott anyway.

I was very surprised when Scott made the roster.

BBI folks should take a bow because we are definitely getting better at roster moves!!!!!!
I think BBI may be onto something  
ZogZerg : 10/1/2013 6:03 pm : link
The coaches have lost their minds and Reese is trying to save them from themselves by dumping Scott.
if true

Sucks and is always injured
If this were preseason  
KeoweeFan : 10/1/2013 6:20 pm : link
I would think that the team gave Scott a chance to put up or shut up. You normally don't do that in such a critical regular season game, but maybe the coaches were divided on Scott's value and this was TC's way to break the tie.
I got my wish.Too bad they waited for him to play like shit 1moretime  
cheeseburger : 10/1/2013 6:27 pm : link
Difference is
cheeseburger : 9/28/2013 4:47 pm : link
Our RB's can't even help, If I see number 33 back there on third down again i'm smashing my tv. guy can't block and he doesn't follow blockers. we suck this year. just leave wilson out there. and give jacobs the ball when we need a two yard loss or if we don't want to score on the goaline on purpose, ie bradshaw in the Super bowl
No issue with this...  
rptl530 : 10/1/2013 6:30 pm : link
it seems Snee is going to IR and Baas probably isn't far behind.

Let's get some different guys in here and see what they have. For now, let's go Beatty, Brewer, Boothe, Mosley & Pugh.

Backups....Reynolds, Diehl & Cordle.
.Scott's rushes were  
Randy in CT : 10/1/2013 6:37 pm : link
taking snaps away from Wilson which was dumb because he has about half the ability of Wilson--let's see what we have in DW in this shitter of a season.
And I could see Brown being cut  
Randy in CT : 10/1/2013 6:37 pm : link
when they have plan B set.
I agree with Eric  
Optimus-NY : 10/1/2013 6:40 pm : link
I think
Eric from BBI : Admin : 5:39 pm : link
this has more to do with Snee.

Again, Reynolds has experience at guard.

The next roster move will likely be the required roster move in order to make room on the active 53-man roster for the return of Will Hill. That move will likely be a player going on season-ending IR. that player looks like Snee at this moment. The Giants will likely make this move by 4 pm ET on Saturday, which the deadline they have to decide what they'll do roster-wise regarding the re-addition of Will Hill to the active-53. I think Pattie is spot on regarding what will happen (see the tweet below):

Patricia Traina

The Giants have until 4PM Saturday to activate Hill. My guess is if Snee is as bad as reports indicate, he'll go on IR.

4:14 PM - 1 Oct 13
This is also....  
Robert : 10/1/2013 6:55 pm : link
huge in another way. They just told Wilson that he's the man. No more looking over your shoulder. No more worries about making a mistake. No more dog house. No more trying to be part of the team. You ARE the team.

This kid may start running like Satan on his way out of heaven.
Goodbye, so soon!  
Geomon : 10/1/2013 7:14 pm : link
And isn't this a crime?
We know by now that time knows how to fly

So here's goodbye so soon
You'll find your separate way
With time so short I'll say so long
And go so soon

You followed me, I followed you
We were like each other's shadows for a while
Now as you see, this game is through
So although it hurts, I'll try to smile

LMAO. Darell got cut!  
Neverend : 10/1/2013 7:18 pm : link
that turnover in the chiefs game sealed the deal on what was already a short leash. wow, CUT, a game when he saw a considerable number of snaps

those who cum in their pants when they see explosive straight line speed, will love scott, sure whatever. that's all he has, and it takes him a while to get run at full speed anyway, hes a long strider. He has no special qualities other than that. burst, change of direction, elusiveness. im glad hes gone and wont be taking up snaps that belong to wilson

hope he gets some carries.
Thi s is Wilson's team  
spike : 10/1/2013 9:15 pm : link
until Andre Brown returns..
I have a feeling all of us planning to see a boatload of Wilson  
BlueHurricane : 10/1/2013 9:19 pm : link
are going to be very disappointed when Jacobs starts taking Scotts snaps.
BigBlueBuff : 10/1/2013 9:37 pm : link
Although I don't agree with your theory about the motivation for the Scott cut, don't let that particular poster get under your skin. He specializes in being an ass.
Doomster : 10/1/2013 9:52 pm : link
I doubt we cut Josh Brown, we can't afford to....

As for Scott, I was surprised he had that many carries....surprised at the posters blaming him for the flubs on the screen passes....look where the ball was thrown...think Jacobs catches them? Wilson?

So now we have three backs? Wilson still has problems blocking....Jacobs maybe gets more touches, but does this mean TC plays a rookie, Cox?
Bradshaw played as a rookie  
spike : 10/1/2013 10:02 pm : link
I hope Cox gets some
great now cut gilbride  
blakjedi : 10/1/2013 10:05 pm : link
And were set.
whoa whoa whoa  
mattlawson : 10/1/2013 10:54 pm : link
why do we need 3 RBs getting time? can we just have 2 for christs sake? wilson and jacobs? jacobs for protection? why do i feel like im taking crazy pills?
Jacobs is your third down back  
spike : 10/1/2013 10:56 pm : link
for pass protection. We aint converting any third downs with runs anyways.

Wilson gets most of the rushing attempts
Good, makes me wish  
GiantTuff1 : 10/1/2013 11:00 pm : link
this happened sooner, and is very strange that a guy who is not even on the team was stealing snaps from David Wilson.

Were we teaching lessons at the expense of the upside of this team?

At this point, Wilson needs to be an every day back. Sink or swim with him.

I snuck this thought in on the Eli needs to improve his short/check down game thread the other day:

And on a side note the Giants need to get Darrell Scott off the field on every down and let's use David Wilson as a pass catching weapon. Screen him against teams to death. Put him in space and let's see what we have and build both he and Eli's confidence.

At this rate, David Wilson is one of the few guys who can have a massive upside impact, if we elect to use him... which I think is crazy and an indictment of this coaching staff that we haven't, considering we were 0-3, and now 0-4.
dsamn shame is that we drafted Nassib when we could have had  
Paulie Walnuts : 10/1/2013 11:09 pm : link
a red chip center in the 4th round and saved a late rd pick for more depth

also keeping Herz and Rivers over Mini Boz, in my mind was dtupid

The Reynolds signing reminds me...  
Big Blue Blogger : 10/2/2013 9:34 am : link
...of the Scott Peters acquisition in 2003. Another young former Eagle center joins a depleted Giant line as a beleaguered staff tries to salvage the season and their careers.

The impact will probably be similar too.
I can't believe you actually remember Scott Peters  
Greg from LI : 10/2/2013 9:41 am : link
I didn't until you brought him up.
