Is it, though? I mean, now he has to introduce himself to Eli Manning all over again. I'm sure Manning's forgotten all about him.

This is a salient point and why I should never post before that first sip of java..
Doc, I'll bet it's not just Manning, either.

My guess is that Beckham will be shunned by the rest of his teammates. They won't talk to him, they'll turn their backs on him, and most likely they'll vandalize his locker, too.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that they probably won't let him join in any reindeer games, either.

Rhett Ellison's calf injury. Not liking some of the reports i've been reading about it.
We've finally got some talent at TE after a mini drought at the position. Taking nothing away from Gilbride Jr, part of me wishes we still had Mike Pope to help mold these young guys. I loved how he developed guys like Boss and Ballard.

And failed to develop a ton of other guys. I'm sorry, but in my opinion Mike Pope was one of the most overrated coaches in the history of coaches.

Regardless, Ellison's calf injury has nothing to do with who his position coach is.
Pope  
SLIM_ : 6/12/2017 3:01 pm : link
Pope was a great coach. His history of development is incredibly impressive. The guy is 75 years old now. I think he can get a mulligan for the past couple failures where he had almost little to work with. He's been gone for 2 (3?) years so you can't blame Tye on him. Donnell has proven that he isn't a football player regardless of coach.
