DG Strengths

frankmihs : 3/13/2018 7:02 pm
One of the things we were excited about when DG was hired was his ability to find talent in the rough especially at offensive line. Yet everyone is now freaking out when we don't sign the high ticket, probably overprice offensive lineman. Its day 2 of the pre-FA period and people are legitimately freaking out. SMH

I have no doubt he will strengthen this roster, but there is no reason whatsoever to like the signings of Stewart and Herzlich.
Stewart

A big issue was the culture last year. If Stewart is at a relatively low price tag, what's the problem? To change the culture many times you have to change the people.
I've made it a personal rule

that when a new coach or a new GM starts, I wait a year or two before I start questioning their decisions.
Giants no proven RB

Stewart still runs hard, great in pass protection, & good mentor. Giants will still pick up 2-3 youngsters in draft and FA.

Well that, and we follow a team that has basically sucked for 7 years and people are jaded.

And if im not mistaken, the high priced free agent that signed elsewhere was one of DG's OL finds. Hopefully, he can find another (or two, three, four) in this draft and UDFA signing period.

Concerning Stewart, i'm gonna trust DG and MS here...they obviously know the guy well and know what he can bring to the team, be it on the field on in the locker room from a leadership perspective. Same with Ogletree on the defensive side.
FA has just begun.

True, but Modesto wasn't built in a day either, and it's still a shithole.

Today is for the rich Macy's shoppers......I think the Giants are waiting for J.C. Penney to open.

Giants been in 'Modesto' 6 years, and the 'Mayor' left us with shabby buildings and little cash to rebuild quickly.
Give the new 'mayor' a chance.
We just watched a 3-win football season.

They fired the GM and the coach. Itís day 2 of free agency. Calm down
I'm fine.  
Ten Ton Hammer : 3/13/2018 7:53 pm : link
That's just the reality. They've been terrible for five years, we have no idea what the plan is, they spent a big chunk of their available cap space and two draft picks to take the contract of an overpaid linebacker, and resigned Mark Herzlich.

Can't expect everyone to be smelling roses.

Doesnít mean people should be in full on panic mode. Not saying you are but posters are freaking out on BBI.
Let's see what he can do  
mdc1 : 3/13/2018 9:53 pm : link
as he has not proven anything yet, beyond assuming the title and collecting a paycheck.
The big question about DG is  
mdc1 : 3/13/2018 9:54 pm : link
what is, has and he will be doing to make us better? That remains to be seen.

I think it may be more like Dollar Tree NTTAWWT
DG Strengths?

Obviously too early to tell, but if today is any indication - we should expect him going forward to jerk-off on Day 1 of FA, cause Stewart and Herzlich are jerk-off moves.
