Amukamara on the Loss of Will Hill

Eric from BBI : Admin : 6/2/2014 10:24 pm
Quote:

I realized how many times he saved our butts and how many times he came up big, Amukamara said of Hill, the former Giants safety who was waived on Monday after being handed a third drug-related suspension in three seasons by the NFL. Its going to be a tough loss. Hopefully if he goes to a team, its not someone in the NFC East. Hes a guy you dont want to face.

...

I just saw him with the trash bag right before we were going out to practice, so it shocked us, Amukamara said. He told us that he was gone, so it was tough.

...

I know the Giants are very huge on reputation and representing the organization well, Amukamara said. It was tough. I figured that was an option, to cut him from the team, but I didnt think they would. I dont think he missed a day in meetings or showing up to OTAs or practice. I didnt see it coming, but I definitely saw it as a possibility.

...

Its going to be tough to fill his shoes because he brought so much energy on special teams and on defense, Amukamara said. Hell be a hard guy to replace.


Amukamara 'shocked' Giants cut Hill, hopes he doesn't land in NFC East - ( New Window )

just cut a future hall of fame safety. Seriously? He is unreliable. He was given parameters by which to conduct himself and he could not comply. He was given all of the support in the world to battle his demons and still put himself in a bad spot - fully knowing the consequences. THREE failed tests after getting kicked off his college team - Florida no less. No other team wanted him and the Giants gave him an opportunity that he flushed down the toilet.

And spare me on how much he "saved" the Giants secondary last year. Last I checked, they were 7-9. That does not sound like a "saved" team to me.
Certain guys...  
FatMan in Charlotte : 6/3/2014 8:35 am : link
just can't straighten out. We took the same risk with Plaxico. The guy was a malcontent and a trouble-maker with the Steelers, and we luckily got a window from him where he didn't do anything devastatingly stupid.

Then he did. Some guys always do. Just a matter of time.
He had a lifelong pattern

of poor behavior and, lacking signs of redemption, it's unreasonable to believe it would stop.

Terrible loss but what else could the Giants do?
I agree with BB56  
Jim in Tampa : 6/3/2014 8:45 am : link
It's called Progressive Discipline.

Anyone who has run an organization or managed people knows that there have to be rules and consequences for breaking the rules.

When an employee violates one of the rules you sit them down, explain the violation and tell them the consequences if they break the rule again.

The Giants likely did the same thing with Hill, letting him know at "strike two" that if he violated the substance abuse policy again he would be gone. They probably even asked him if he understood the consequences for another violation.

So what else could they do when Hill broke the rules for a third time?

Should they have said that they were only kidding when they told him he would be cut after strike three?

Should they have said that they'd let him slide one more time, but if he did it again they would actually follow through on their promise to cut him?

What message would that have sent to Will Hill and to his teammates?

You can't run a team like that.

Will Hill knew the rules and the repercussions for breaking the substance abuse policy a third time.

The Giants didn't cut him. Will Hill cut himself.
i am all for cutting him  
Essex : 6/3/2014 8:52 am : link
because he got three strikes etc. And, I understand that you can't smoke weed in the NFL, no matter how trivial some may think the infraction is. With that said, all of his teammates seem to think he is a good guy, and it hurts to cut him. I really do think he is trying, but he just fell short. And this cut was not because he is a bad guy, but simply because he continued to break team rules. Another team is going to be very fortunate that we were forced to take a principled decision.
This from Will Hill according to Raanan awhile ago:

an_idol_mind : 6/3/2014 9:02 am : link
Counting this year's suspension, Will Hill will have missed 14 games in three years. And the next time he gets suspended, he's out for a full season.

It's the equivalent of a guy who is very productive but constantly injured. At some point the team has to go with somebody who has a better chance of giving you 16 full games.
He's trying? Come on!

They aren't asking him to move mountains here. Don't fail a drug test - how goddamned hard is that? Somehow Antrel Rolle manages to not fail drug tests, and Stevie Brown, and Cooper Taylor, and so on and so on.
Maybe Rolle and Brown  
Essex : 6/3/2014 9:14 am : link
do not have the rough and disadvantaged upbringing this kid had. I am for cutting him, but I do take into consideration that his teammates were saying that he really was trying to stay on a straight and narrow path. He failed, but it doesn't mean he wasn't trying to be a good player and teammate. I can feel bad for him and at the same time think he should have been cut.
I know Rolle didn't

He knew the terms, he violated them.
Even if the league excepted weed from the drug policy, with someone like WH who apparently has -0- self control,and supposing he tokes up or gets a ride from some buddies and gets a contact/2nd hand smoke high;-),game day,and has that 'glow', narrow-eyed look, you think he's helpful even 4 hours later?
TC(not naive) likely makes him an inactive for punishment.
Same for an alcohol stupor for those that like to equivocate the substances.
He really needs to check into a long term rehab place or we read about him 10 years from now in a Mark Ingram I kind of story. In'15 I think he'll be 26 w/o the wear and tear and can get back someplace, maybe even NYFG if he really can prove his rehabilitation.

Will Hill and the lack of support by our pathetic Giant franchise  
royhobbs7 : 6/3/2014 10:21 am : link
Another gutless move for a franchise headed in the wrong direction. Ive been a Giants fan for 50+ years and to hear that they will not support a player because he is denied due process for an outdated law is just showing how clueless this organization has morphed into, under Reese (in such a short period of time). Yeah, they should have given him one more chance given the circumstances, and given what some of the other players and former Giants who were close to Will had to say. Im really disgusted. This team is turning real soft. They protected LT, didn t they? That was because Parcells had his players back!

Tuck (for good reason), Linval Joseph and Hill are gone. Those were three of the five most determined players on defense last year. Who is going to replace them? Rookie DT Jay Bromley? PUHLEESSSEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

hitdog42 : 6/3/2014 10:26 am : link
is as frustrating as the decision itself. could have waited to see what we have with demps and taylor, and player health returning from injury... this also gives a team a chance to sign him and acclamate to the system so he can return in good form after 6 weeks.
This likely bites in the ass big time.

What opportunities did the Giants give him? Were they proactive with supporting him with counseling for his drug issues. Did they have a veteran teammate shadow him?
What exactly did he do? He took some Ritalin and smoked some reefer (on his own time). Yes, he knew the rules. But now that 30+ states have medical marijuana and the Feds voted the other day not to interfere with any state that has a medical marijuana statute, I find this alarming. The NFL did not even attempt to give Hill due process. What is even more
contemptuous regarding the NFL, the Giants and Hill (in this instance)is that there will probably be a negotiation between the NFL and NFLPA to change their agreement on suspending players for recreational marijuana use within the next two years. They are already in talks regarding this issue given that penalizing players is not gravitating towards the present zeitgeist regarding marijuana use in this country.

Sorry, but I think that you are being nave. As long as there have been leagues there have been league rules that have been broken. You can start with Mickey Mantle and Babe Ruth, two of the biggest drunkards and womanizers in the history of sports in this country. They were not kicked off the team or ostracized from the league for their repeated violation of team and league rules. No, they are in the Hall of Fame and have monuments in Yankee Stadium.

And Lawrence Taylor. Do I detect a big groundswell of support from all of you out there for evicting him from the Hall of Fame? I didn't think so.

Will Hill's problem was not smoking marijuana. It was for being stupid enough to be caught.

This guy is no more valuable than Tiki was and arguably Shockey. We did quite alright w/o either of them.

The important part is the remaining rotation. We have a few high upside guys and the starters, Rolle and Stevie Brown (if healthy) are very good.

The Duke : 6/3/2014 2:12 pm : link
Yes, he has tremendous football talent and athletic ability. However, it is also clear that the man is a dedicated drug addict! I base this on the simple fact of his complete inability to control his drug habit even with millions of dollars in contracts waiving right in front of his face. Then add in his constantly letting his teammates down by his inability to control his drug habits and getting repeatedly suspended. Sure some team will no doubt pick him up, but the Giants were very patient in trying to get him to see the light and their efforts failed. Time to cut bait and move on. I applaud the Giants move and congratulate them for not continuing to reward bad behavior!
let's just all remember  
aquidneck : 6/3/2014 2:24 pm : link
this is about the Giants, not the nfl. The nfl imposed a 6-game suspension, the Giants were the ones who decided to cut bait.

Somebody just above me noted that the Giants did surprisingly well right after losing impact players tiki and shockey. Let's just all wish Will Hill luck and hope for similar magic.
The knock on Coughlin above  
RetroJint : 6/3/2014 2:32 pm : link
is knuckle-headed, age discriminatory, and if I had to guess-racist. See we can all play that game. Tom Coughlin is a traditional Roman Catholic who believes in redemption. Witness: Tyree, MacKenzie, Diehl , Boley et.al. What happened with Hill is management was not thrilled with having one of its employees around for roughly 60 % of a season, absence not due to injury . Concerning the pot, this is of a different composition than we had in the free-wheeling seventies. Not yet classified as addictive but much more habit-forming. Hill is similar to Tannard Jackson, who was another safety of enormous promise who basically smoked his career away. Can Hill reform and become a reliable teammate and father? Yeah anything can happen but don't bet on him. Remember it was the Giants who gave him a chance and it was the Giants he poked in the ass.
Thanks, Willie, I knew Eric was behind this!  
Klaatu : 6/3/2014 3:13 pm : link
Just look at those beady eyes, that weak chin...a born trouble-maker...evil incarnate.

As for Eric's hand-picked hatchet man, Connor Hughes, he probably had that editorial written weeks ago, salivating at the thought of having it published on BBI, pouring salt onto a grievously wounded Will Hill.

Keep fighting the good fight, Willie.

They DID give him one more chance - last year. At some point, you have to stop giving a guy "one more chance" or he'll never change, nor will any of the other players believe you. In "Earn the Right to Win," Tom Coughlin points out the necessity of instilling discipline, setting out rule and expectation, and treating all players by those same rules. It doesn't matter whether it was Will Hill, Julian Talley, or JPP. When a player continuously shows a disregard for team rules and puts himself above the team, then he must be removed. I loved the talent Hill showed, but he was given enough chances.

there are three different points being made  
Les in TO : 6/3/2014 5:41 pm : link
1. Hill was a tremendous asset on the field, a model teammate and made a number of big tackles and plays last year. We are a better team when he is playing than when he is not.
2. Hill is not bigger than the rules or the team; he was given one last chance to shape up and stay out of trouble and he didn't comply. out of principle, you have to treat everyone equally otherwise no one has respect for the rules and chaos can ensue. if he slipped up again, which given his history and lack of respect for the policies is likely, it could be a year long type of suspension and serve as even a bigger risk and disruption than it already has been,
3. Hill's infractions of the rules seem relatively minor and benign in the big picture and relative to some bad things other people have done

Cumulatively point #2 wins out over #1 and #3 as painful as that is.

That doesn't make sense. I don't see how the lesson is impaired. The lesson is you can't keep screwing up and making excuses and play here. He's no longer here. They have decided that they don't want his talent. Of course you as a fan may not agree.
I guess I should say there was no need for an ADDITIONAL lesson  
Shockeyisthebest80 : 6/3/2014 7:31 pm : link
beyond suspension and loss of wages. Losing almost 40% of a year's salary is quite a hit. The rest of the guys in the room see THAT as a major deterrence.

As Prince states in his comments, Hill will be on another team... he's too talented not to be. There's a decent chance he'll end up with a better contract than the one he just had. It's not as if Will Hill's options are the Giants or a park bench. That's where the lesson loses whatever perceived power comes from it. The fact that he "won't be here" isn't going to hurt Will Hill. It's just going to hurt the Giants.
Suspending a player because he smokes marijuana is like  
GeofromNJ : 6/3/2014 7:33 pm : link
suspending a player because he watches pornography. It is beyond absurd. But I don't blame the Giants for releasing Hill. My guess is they would rather fill his roster spot with a DB that will be with the team all year, even if he doesn't have Hill's talent, rather than wait for Hill to return and then risk losing him again. I do, however, blame the league for a totally asinine rule and I look forward to their coming to their senses and dropping it.

It's this, and the fact that if you bend the rules for one guy, no matter how talented, the rest will start to expect the same.
