Saquon Barkley wins Pepsi Rookie of the Year

Big Rick in FL : 1/31/2019 7:56 am
Per Rapsheet on Twitter. Good I'm very happy for him. No way did Mayfield deserve it over Saquon.

I was completely against taking a RB, but Saquon was everything everybody said and more. He was unreal. Should be fun watching Saquon, Odell, Shep & Engram with a young QB.

Fortunately there are 31 other teams in the NFL, so rather then going through chinese water torture being a Giants fan, you can root for another team!

Barkley had a great year, but this is the equivalent of best 10-year-old in a Spy Kids sequel at the Nickelodeon awards.

It's literally an internet poll.
He's a stud  
GiantGrit : 1/31/2019 12:48 pm : link
I loved Mayfield coming out, happy to see him doing well. Both will be awesome for a while. Two different players that maximize their abilities with completely alternate personalities, which i find interesting.

I can still root for the Giants without living in the fantasy world that many of their fans currently choose to be in.

But I could have sworn there was someone here who popped onto every single Barkley thread pre-draft last year claiming that SB couldn't break tackles.

Anyone remember which poster that was?

Fan since your freshman year at PSU. You helped bring respect back to PSU, now you'll bring it back to the Giants too.
Well deserved for SB

If it was a team award for best rookie class, IMO the Colts run away with it with two OL and an LB. Although the Giants and Browns and Denver all had great classes.

What fantasy? The best player in the class is on the Giants. Your argument is they should have taken a QB. Well the best QB went #1. And if you're rebuttal is we need to wait and see how Darnold & co. play out, you'll just prove that your ridiculously negative attitude is over the top. Because i can rebuttal and say the same exact thing for this regime & their plans on how to build the roster.

49 times out of 50, you take the highly rated QB over the highly rated RB. Barkley represents the one time you don't.

Yes, that's EXACTLY why the drafted the person who was regarded - bar none - as the most talented player in the entire draft.

You always whine that the team should stockpile talent, even if they feel they are "stacked" at a certain position. Build on a strength, you have said more than once. Draft for talent over need, you have said more than once.

Well, they drafted the player universally regarded as the best player, and you are still bitching they didn't take a QB.

Taking a QB would have been drafting for need instead of BPA, which is exactly why you preach against...
I'm not running the team, dipshit  
Go Terps : 1/31/2019 7:30 pm : link
The Giants are going to keep personal the same model that they've been; based on the franchise QB. THEY value the quarterback above all, and they are going to try to replace Eli with another Eli.

And they passed up on a great opportunity to do that. And now they're looking at a much poorer QB draft, and an even more severe quarterback hole.
Whether or not  
Tim in Eternal Blue : 1/31/2019 8:06 pm : link
taking Saquon with the 2 pick last year was the right choice, is certainly up for debate...but it's a moot point. He's our RB, he's fucking amazing on and off the gridiron. I'm happy for him and happy he's a Giant.

why don't you just root for the jets, who drafted your favorite . . . Most of your argument against SB is because he went to Penn St., who you want burned to the ground.
You make me sick. Just STFU.

This is just a fan award.
I get the feeling that people on this thread....

are subconsciously rooting for Barkley to NOT win ROY, and if he does will minimize it...

Step back and think about that, as a Giants fan.
Don't be so dramatic. Just because a few posters consistently  
Jimmy Googs : 2/1/2019 7:46 am : link
use chances like this to indirectly second-guess the SB pick doesn't mean they don't want him to perform well/get awards. Nor does it outweigh the other 70+ guys on this thread that simply support him winning.

And lets not drag yours and anyone else's subconscious on BBI into a thread please...ever
It's not dramatic....  
Britt in VA : 2/1/2019 8:40 am : link
it's f-cking weird.

The guy is likely going to be the AP Rookie of the Year. He's had a HISTORIC rookie season. Something only done twice before.

At this point, how can anybody still be complaining about this pick?

We are rebuilding. He is part of the solution. A big part of it. He is the future of this team.
Place sounds more and more like Cowboys fans central all the time

It's not enough to be a fan of a player, everybody has to agree with how awesome and great it is too or you're a 'hater'.

Nothing there about saying Barkley is a good player - in fact, seems like he's just a reason the team is not going to win.

Really could have just been a straightforward thread about Saquon having a great year.
No. What's weird is several of you caring

I'd like to think thoughtful fans can separate wanting a different, valid direction for the team and Barkley having a subjectively fantastic season. Not mutually exclusive.

But the Pepsi People's Choice Award brought to you by what's essentially a clickbait internet survey isn't exactly an honor.

If you say so. Maybe you can check out which exemplary sportswriters vote for these things. Agendas, lack of football comprehension, and peer pressure abound among many of them.
