We need a running back

blue1986 : 10/12/2017 8:29 pm
I think a good trade right now would be Cromartie and a 3 round draft choice for the Bengals Jeremy Hill. What do you think? We need a good running back.
Anything involving DRC is a bit pre-mature IMO  
Bluesbreaker : 10/12/2017 8:32 pm : link
He certainly could be a nice chip to a contender that loses
a starting CB though ... sigh

I was an advocate of signing Blount this offseason.

He's averaging nearly 6 YPC in PHI right now.

They have a better line than we did, but I'm fairly certain Blount would have faired much better than Perkins here.

*Fared... not faired.
That's the ticket.

A running back will put us over the top.
The team loses 4 WRs in 1 game last week  
GiantGolfer : 10/12/2017 8:51 pm : link
and we should trade away a draft pick for a mediocre RB?

Got it.
Hill will be  
pjcas18 : 10/12/2017 9:03 pm : link
a free agent after the season.

would be a horrible trade to rent Jeremy Hill in a dead season.

and DRC is probably more valuable than Hill on his own, why throw in the 3rd?
Save the RB talk  
Earl the goat : 10/12/2017 9:40 pm : link
For the Giants first round pick in the 2018 draft
Saquan Barkley
We already have a good RB on the team but Doo Doo  
fredgbrown : 10/12/2017 9:43 pm : link
is just not smart enough to play him enough...
Gallman  
cokeduplt : 10/12/2017 9:44 pm : link
Has looked good. Give the guy a chance there is literally nothing to lose
Gallman might have a future here  
djm : 10/12/2017 9:49 pm : link
..
Who will block for this RB you want to trade for?  
SterlingArcher : 10/12/2017 10:35 pm : link
After 2 games you would be calling him a bust!
I would like to see a RB not named Perkins running before I say  
fredgbrown : 10/12/2017 10:37 pm : link
that this line can not run block.
This might be the worst trade suggestion of the year  
adamg : 10/12/2017 10:39 pm : link
Really crazy.

We could just wait for Hill to hit FA and sign him for cheap OR we could trade a high 3rd rounder and a player who may fetch such a pick for a guy who's at best worth a 6th round conditional... Ok...

Have you watched the Giants the last two weeks?
my question is  
SHO'NUFF : 10/12/2017 10:53 pm : link
wtf took so long to replace Perkins... even still, it took injuries for other backs to get carries.

Two weeks ago Gallman had 11 for 42 and Perkins 9 for 13. Last week the team had 152 yards rushing. So yes I have been watching .
Gallman is averaging 4.5 ypc  
Ira : 10/13/2017 12:08 am : link
behind our offensive line. While he hasn't been out there enough to say we're set with him starting, so far he's done well.
Let's see what Gallman  
larryflower37 : 10/13/2017 12:14 am : link
Does over the next 11 games before trade away a 3rd pick and a starting cb.
Also do we make the playoffs with Hill.......

NO.

We should be accumulating picks not trading them away.

Think this stuff through before starting a thread about it.
Really?  
Giant John : 10/13/2017 8:59 am : link
We have needed a good running back for years. Not to mention people to block for him.
SB has a nice ring to it.  
Giant John : 10/13/2017 9:03 am : link
Like to see him in blue next year.
After two weeks where Gallman looks good  
Ten Ton Hammer : 10/13/2017 9:05 am : link
This is an odd time for this thread to exist.
DRC and a pick for Hill?  
Heisenberg : 10/13/2017 9:06 am : link
C'mon...
A good corner  
ryanmkeane : 10/13/2017 9:29 am : link
and a 3rd for an average running back? Yikes.

You have. Gallman and DArka and Vereen have all had moments of success running behind the same line that couldn't spring Perkins and his cement shoes.

It's not all on the OL people. Think back in history. Remember?
As I mentioned in the Philly/Carolina game thread  
ThreePoints : 10/13/2017 10:08 am : link
Blount for $1.25 million would have been a good fit.

Yep. Surprised Reese didnt go after him. Only 1.25 mil

Asleep at the wheel
Jeremy Hill is no better than we currently have, in fact he's older  
PatersonPlank : 10/13/2017 10:16 am : link
and I think I'd rather have Darkwa/Gallman at this point. Hill is washed up.

Opps I was think about a different guy. Still don't like Hill much though. I like Gallman and Darkwa as much. Hill is currently the 3rd back at Cinn., he gets like 3-5 carries a week.
No  
Peppers : 10/13/2017 12:40 pm : link
We need a lot of things but trading a 3rd round pick and DRC for a RB in an expiring contract during a lost season is not a good idea.
I could not believe how Quick Gallman is  
Elite Mobster #32 : 10/13/2017 2:45 pm : link
We had him on the team since the first week of the season, but the Giants way is to blow 4 games first on vets.
