Gettleman on "positional value"

joeinpa : 8/11/2018 8:30 am
At gym listening to Big Blue Kick Off, from yesterday

They just addressed the internet battle between Giants fans in regard to drafting quarterback.

They said, Giants stated before draft, Davis Webb would have no bearing on whom they drafted. Said Gettleman made himself clear that he does not buy into the "positional value" idea, he believes you draft the best athlete.

I did not know that, but it certainly is revealing. It s not necessarily true that the Giants did not value these quarterbacks, just that they valued Barkley more.

So dumb....Eli and Peyton have the same amount of SB wins and Eli is not in the same planet as Peyton.

Each year the fans of the Colts and Broncos knew they were going to be great on offense and make the playoffs.

With Eli we have some blind fait in the last 5 years and most times fans here predict 6-10 records.


THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE.....A true long term franchise hof qb does not miss the playoffs as much as Eli and also gives fans the belief that eve if no sb they will be a good team making the playoffs

With Eli the last few years we are hoping we can score more than 20


isnt the point to win championships? not just make the playoffs?

if you win 1 superbowl with barkley and never make the playoffs again, i would take that over playoffs every year and never winninh with darnold...

making the playoffs is great but if you do not win a championship what is the point?

Well let's see

With a qb we will be competitive year in and year out

With a rb with no qb we will be losing most years even if he plays great.

It is not rocket science

If you tell me that Darnold and SB both will make the HOF one day and which I prefer

I will take the qb because I know that if you have a HOF at that position you will be in the mix year in and year out

A RB? no chance
i dont know any fan

Jimmy Googs : 8/11/2018 11:53 am : link
1 - because I just told you the QB value in the team equation of competing for championships is greater than the RB

2- because some folks on BBI think Eli is done and this is wasting time

3 - some on BBI simply liked Darnold more than any RB (or fill in your favorite QB name)

4 - because people get bent out of shape on BBI on most any topic...

You are lost in the weeds. Nobody evaluating talent can see so sharply into the future whether a draftable player is the difference between just getting to a superbowl and winning one. You pick the best players that can directionally point you down that path, and then the chips fall where they fall.

that is not my point, and i even sakd drafting barkley by himself doea not win a superbowl, just like drafting darnold by himself does not win a superbowl....

it is about team will always be about team...

if darnold becomes a hall of fame qb it doesnt mean the jets are going to win, that has been my point this entire time...

Let me make sure I am clear on this  
arniefez : 8/11/2018 12:27 pm : link
The Giants GM in 2018 doesnít believe there is different positional value but is paying a good LT like an all pro and gave 6 million dollars to the corpse of a RB who he says hasnít lost anything and then spent the #2 pick in the draft on another RB in a draft with 5 1st round QBs and his QB is 37 years old. Sounds like the Giants are in great hands

Yes, but you're getting caught up the nuance of competing for championships vs. winning them. Elway absolutely brought the value that Denver consistently competed for them almost every year. The improved running game got them over the hump in winning the last game a couple of times.



but again it proves my point, having the hall of fame qb does not guarantee you anything
There is nothing you can do with a single draft pick that will guarantee a championship.

comparing this draft to the one that produced Elway and Sanders. Think we would have taken Elway over Sanders as well. Moot argument until somebody in this draft proves they belong anywhere near that company. QB is the more valuable position if both work out but this was a judgement call on their worth and our needs now, by our braintrust.

And fairly speaking 39/52 Super Bowl winners will be Hall of Famers. And that 13 non HOFers includes Plunket twice, Theisman, and Simms who were pretty good players. Hoss and Foles were late season replacements for teams well on their way to contention.

Yes, all this is true.

But here is the thing. Teams who have uncertainty for the future of the QB position usually jump at the opportunity to take one when drafting this high, as long as there is a franchise caliber QB available. The top player drafted is usually a QB, not necessarily the best player regardless of position. The reason for that is because teams understand how important that position is, how hard good QBs are to get, and how difficult it is to win without one. This is why the statement that DG doesn't factor position in is quite honestly head scratching, and actually hard to believe.

The Giants clearly had the need. There were obviously viable prospects considering a number were drafted in the first round including Darnold with the next pick, who was seen by many as the top QB in the draft, and the highest on the Giants board. So obviously they either did not think any of the QBs were worthy, or they just loved Barkley too much. Either way, it was a controversial pick. No one would have accused them of reaching for a QB had they taken Darnold. So this will be debated for a long time.

My personal opinion is and has been that Darnold is the real deal. He is the only player I would have taken over Barkely. I think it was a gift that he fell to them and believe it was a mistake passing up on that gift. Long way to go before anything is settled. What Darnold showed last night is exactly what his potential is, whether that happens or not. But seeing him show all of that, even if only in the preseason, with so little camp time, and also seeing Webb look like total crap in the same week despite two years in camp, is not at all inspiring confidence that my take is wrong. No need for hyperbole though --I am not lacking perspective that this is just a small initial test. So we have to see what happens from here.

Welcome to the BBI Flagellant Society (BFS) meeting! To convene every Sunday of the fall.



The topic of today and every day (till finis mundi) is why the Giants did not take a QuarterBack in the 2018 draft.

Sinners will provide their own whips, clothing, health insurance, etc. This will continue till the careers of Mr. Rosen, Mr. Darnold, and Mr. Allen are complete. Let the Lamentations comence!
No one knows  
mrvax : 8/11/2018 1:41 pm : link
at this point if the Giants were correct or not regarding the top QB's in the draft. It could take up to 3 years to see how this shakes out.

I think most BBIers can agree the Giants are not stupid. If they had a QB there that they ranked a "can't miss", he'd have been the pick.

There is only 1 possible reason that the Giants did not go QB with the 2nd pick in the draft. Let's just relax a while and see if they were right or wrong.

What gets me is the idea that if Darnold becomes good we fucked up. What is Barkley becomes an all time great and Darnold becomes a good, not great QB? There are QBs like that in most drafts. 2018 isn't the last draft ever. We'll likely have a better opportunity to draft a QB of Darnold's talent than an RB of Barkley's talent in the coming years. How many first overall QBs for example have become worth their draft spot? Peyton, Elway, Aikman, and Eli come to mind (not putting Newton on this list yet). Lots of great QBs who have been had late in the first and later. Why are people being so myopic like the Giants will never have a chance to draft a franchise QB ever again.

You do realize that Eli Manning, the QB the team is all in on, has led the league in INTs or tied 3 times and is top 10 all times among QBs in fumbles and most among active QBs, including 2 nd in the NFL in 2007 when he won the SB, right? But hey, who needs facts.



So that makes drafting a turnover machine to be the heir apparent is a good idea?

Seriuosly? Um, it means you canít look at one stat and expect it to tell the whole story. This would seem to be obvious.


I agree that ideally a franchise QB would have been nice, but drafting a turnover machine at #2 overall is a poor decision.

Eli has nothing to do with it.

You previously stated that you didn't understand what Darnold's detractors were seeing; I gave you a visual. There were some huge red blinking flags with Darnold.

I mean if you legit think that then yeah we made a mistake if you're right. It's possible and in fact probably that the Giants didn't think that.
I agree w/ the fact there is more value to the QB position  
ChaChing : 8/11/2018 2:56 pm : link
on a conceptual level. I also admit I couldn't speak much to scouting, the most important aspect most of us don't address or just know little about. So in theory yes, we should lean to QB. But based on scouting we seemed to draft the BPA if not best in draft

Also few mention THIS RB's huge value in the pass game. Iirc the last time our O was good was when we had Vereen - mediocre overall but when healthy a top pass catcher for us. Meaning any QB / pass offense gets a big boost too. Changes the whole convo

There's good arguments on both sides, but IMO more than one way to make it happen. If we had a solid team we could do well with an avg QB and possibly go all in on an FA or draft trade if we're 'a QB away' down the road. So I'm not sure why it HAS to be QB just because of draft position, especially given the top player we got

With Eli we have some blind fait in the last 5 years and most times fans here predict 6-10 records.


THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE.....A true long term franchise hof qb does not miss the playoffs as much as Eli and also gives fans the belief that eve if no sb they will be a good team making the playoffs

No offense but Iíll take the judgment of dg and his staff over some guy behind a keyboard. Not saying heís right and your wrong or your right and heís wrong

but didnt win until the end of his career when he had a great running back



So dumb....Eli and Peyton have the same amount of SB wins and Eli is not in the same planet as Peyton.

Each year the fans of the Colts and Broncos knew they were going to be great on offense and make the playoffs.

With Eli we have some blind fait in the last 5 years and most times fans here predict 6-10 records.


THAT IS THE DIFFERENCE.....A true long term franchise hof qb does not miss the playoffs as much as Eli and also gives fans the belief that eve if no sb they will be a good team making the playoffs

With Eli the last few years we are hoping we can score more than 20


And most franchise qbís have a gm that invests in a line and run game to help him. We just happened to have that one buffoon who didnít. In like 10 minutes since being here dg has immensely improved those areas
Gettleman just wants talent. And drafted the player he believes  
baadbill : 8/11/2018 11:07 pm : link
had the most talent available.

The QB vs RB debate is silly for many reasons. First and foremost the draft is over. It was a nice debate before the draft. But, for me, the draft is over and Iím only interested in the joy of watching a player I hope ends up being the greatest RB in Giants history.

Secondly, this is a team sport. Would Montana have been as heralded as he was if he had been drafted by Cleveland? Would Jerry Rice have been as good as he was without Montana? If Eli has his best year this year, how much will be because of Barkley, Beckham, Engram, and a new OL? My point being, Barkley is going to make the Giants QBs for the next decade better than they would otherwise be. The whole debate is just a dumb one.

It was a great running game, not just the back. Player after player had success in that backfield, not just Davis.


To be fair, none of them had quite the same level of production as Davis.

That's a head scratcher. For starters, I never asked you to, actually. More so, it's a message board. If aren't allowed to share opinions, why the hell would we be here?

Brett Favre (or insert Steve Young or Troy Aikman, etc.).

definitely the QB. it's not even close.

that said, I'm super excited about having SB on the team.


A better question is, who would you rather draft, Barry Sanders or Steve Walsh? Because Walsh was the first QB chosen after Sanders was.
Also

Favee was drafted in the second round, and then acquired by a trade.

He doesn't exactly prove you need to spend a top 5 pick when a QB is available to get a QB of franchise caliber.
you guys worry about the dumbest shit
