Peppers : 3/8/2018 11:20 am
I don't like making threads, this actually may just be my first but I've heard Mayfield will visit. Not sure when.

Why would I steal something from MMQB claiming it as my own knowing its one of the most popular reads this time of year..

Never claimed to be an insider, I got the text a little more than an hour ago.

Just a few days ago I shared a little about Mayfield and NYGs interest. And I've tried to share the little info I get as I get it. It's not ground breaking just little nuggets here and there.

And someone asked why I don't make threads.

Why label TLG as a fake insider? He was right on Shurmur while the Patricia rumors were blowing up BBI. People put their trust in JonC and Eric, but they were wrong.
Fact is . . . .  
TC : 3/8/2018 12:27 pm : link
irrespective of our opinion of Mayfield, NYG scouts, coaches and GM may see him very differently. Either better or worse. He could be the #3 QB on the Giants board. And if they wish to entertain a windfall trade offer, he could figure in.

right are wrong  
hitdog42 : 3/8/2018 12:27 pm : link
it is right that if you called for Shurmur that you were right.
it is wrong to say he was the top choice.
the coaches have choices in the decisions as well...
I don't get the dislike of TLG  
mfsd : 3/8/2018 12:33 pm : link
every time I've seen him post info, he reveals where his source is (an agent, IIRC) and acknowledges it could be false chatter. I don't recall ever seeing him seeking attention like Slade

I recall Peppers stuck to his guns about Schurmur when the beats and other insiders were touting McDaniels or Patricia (or Belichick).

TC : 3/8/2018 12:36 pm : link
I think I read Gettleman quoted as saying that in considering prospects one of the things he likes to do is sit them down and see how much they know about football. Mayfield was reported to be strong on the chalk board, and they may want to explore that knowledge in depth. Obviously, QB is a position where knowing the game is a prerequisite.

And they may also want to test that somewhat prickly personality a little a more.

Of course, there are others in the decision making process and information is fluid. You have been right in the past with information that you have shared as has JonC, Eric, and others. The only one who deserves the scrutiny is Slade.

The timing of the Patricia rumors was a case example of confirmation bias. The vast majority wanted the rumors to be true. They wanted the Lil Bill prodigy. While Peppers and TLG alluded to Shurmur at the same time. The masses wanted Patricia and ignored the other info as it serve to confirm their own bias.

Everyone knows about the MGC, and that is why TLG has been sweepingly discredited. When questioned about it, TLG has stuck to guns that it was the same source. Is it true? Perhaps. Does anyone really believe it? Absolutely not. But to discredit everything TLG posts based on the the Rodgers/MGC thread is ridiculous.

Eh, when the guy is parading around here trying to tell everyone how his track record is as good as anyone else's, it becomes pretty clear what the motivation is - he just wants attention and to be looked at as some important person around here.

He has a much different way of presenting his info.

The other guys mention things subtly - he desperately wants to make sure everyone sees that he has "a buddy" in the know. It's very Thomas/area junk-esque and rubs a lot of people the wrong way.

Whatever, though - to each their own!
I don't know if Patricia was or wasn't the team's top choice...

The biggest issue I have with TLG  
BigBlueShock : 3/8/2018 12:55 pm : link
Is his absolutely over the top hatred for Beckham. And he takes pride in being the biggest cheerleader of the OBJ “haters club”, which he said the other day. You’d think Beckham killed people and had a massive drug problem if you read enough of this guys posts. He honestly thinks it makes him “unbiased” and therefore a more knowledgeable fan. The fact is it makes him look like an overly dramatic idiot.

His holier than thou persona that he likes to portray is a perfect example why NY fans absolutely suck. He is Exhibit A. Run great players out of town because you you are too simple and narrow minded to put things into perspective and not overreact at every turn.

I do not have any inside info and that is why this place is great this time of year as you try to find nuggets from posters who are in the know. Guys like hitdog or JonC will drop hints in threads and sometimes you will have to “read between the lines.” Or as JonC often explains that most info is fluid and can change at any time. A poster like TLG is the complete opposite and often threatens that he will no longer share info because of the flack he gets. It’s attention whoring at its finest.

Lol I got a text too this morning. It was from a buddy who is a big Giants and Baker fan and it was a web link to a site saying the same thing. This was before you posted. I could have posted it like it was from "my source" too I guess.. sorry. This is like B in ALB making a thread saying his source tells him its Shurmur after it was announced like 100 times already, all over again.. just stop it.

I'm not going to belabor the point. If you are that interested, go back in the archives and find the Patricia thread. Note the date and then search the archives for TLG and Peppers comments. If my memory serves correct, the Shurmur info was posted before Patricia was blowing up BBI's servers. If Shurmur wasn't a top choice, it would seem odd to have info before other insiders posted about Patricia. But whatever, I'm not going to continue to defend others comments. If you want to believe a poster's information, that's up to you. But don't act like a BBI Bully and try and discredit others because it doesn't confirm your own bias.

From what I'd heard Shurmur was not thought to be in play, thus the logic led to one of the NE assistants, which led to McD once Patricia to Lions leaked. It happens.

He wasn’t the top choice- you can run any narrative you want about a thread and posts- I’m trying to tell you he wasn’t, which is why I said calling for shurmur ended up being right but it wasn’t the first choice and that is why people appeared to be misled -
