Awesome  
Josh in the City : 2/2/2019 5:28 pm : link
Well deserved (even if we should have taken a QB)!
Hmmm  
section125 : 2/2/2019 5:29 pm : link
guess it wasn't a bad pick.
Nice. Well done SB.

Don't draft RB  
Sy'56 : 2/2/2019 5:31 pm : link
in the first round. Or top 10. Or top 5...whatever it was.
As he should have been  
Hsilwek92 : 2/2/2019 5:32 pm : link
Glad they actually got it right.

It really is incredible  
Hsilwek92 : 2/2/2019 5:38 pm : link
The Giants have two players on their roster that can be considered in the top 5 players for their respective positions and yet, the opinions on them from Giants fans are completely polarized.

Fascinating.
Outstanding

Criticizing the pick isn't about Barkley  
Go Terps : 2/2/2019 5:40 pm : link
He's a great talent and we're all glad to have him.

It's about criticizing the team building strategy, which is more than fair considering where the team is. Things are going to have to improve drastically for the strategy to be proven correct.

It's because the team still sucks despite having them.

The disconnect is here...

One camp doesn't feel it was worth it to pay Beckham OR draft Barkley because they feel it's a suboptimal way of building a team. They say "if the Giants are bad with these players, what makes them part of a solution?"

The other camp feels we're simply way too short-handed elsewhere. Particularly on the other side of the ball and that Barkley and Beckham aren't going to carry the team by themselves. Football is a synergistic sport more than probably any other - if the other cogs are creaky/shitty, the unit is going to struggle to run smoothly.

I fall into the latter of the two, personally. But that's why there continues to be so much debate over each guy.
Next stop.....

Really really tried hard but I just canít brng myself to criticize the strategy of drafting the best players. I know You and others prefer a different strategy, one of not drafting good players, and maybe youíre right that itís a better way, but weíll just have to agree to disagree on this point.
Heís so good  
Jim in Forest Hills : 2/2/2019 6:25 pm : link
Really enjoy watching him play. Now letís win!

great honor. Well deserved. What a year Barkley had last season.
Well deserved!  
Vinny from Danbury : 2/2/2019 6:30 pm : link
Now lets give him a competent Offensive Line, and he can probably compete for league MVP.

trueblueinpw : 2/2/2019 6:51 pm : link
Great season for the rookie. Hereís something to keep you warm this winter, heís probably going to get even better. I hope he has a long and glorious career as a NY Giant.

Congrats Barks!
Was just watching a few clips of Saquon Barkley's rookie year...  
M.S. : 2/2/2019 6:56 pm : link

...whoa. That guy can just flat out run.

Incidentally, one of his little "tricks" is that he can run with tremendous upper body forward lean, which prevents tacklers form getting at his legs. All you get are his shoulders and his torso. But his legs remain free.

In any event, a superstar player with a fantastic personality. Can't wait to see him again come September!

That would be fine if then QB or bust crowd was rational. Teams have grabbed guys like Matt Stafford Mariotta and Winston and have done jack shit. Nick Foles took the Eagles to the Super Bowl. The mantra that you must take QB early in Round 1 is no surety. Especially sI nce the 3 sure fire HOF QBs playing today were taken in late first(Rodgers) 2nd Brees amd 6 th Brady.

So this issue isnít team building theory. Itís people who just insist their opinion is correct. Confusing opinion as fact. Team building is extremely difficult. Find the right coach. Find the right staff. Find players. Donít fuck up the draft. Donít fuck up the cap. Etc. So the Giants look liked they got a a HOF talent and the ďyeah butĒ crowd is still saying it was the wrong pick.

What is flawed with Gettlemanís team building strategy?

It seems like youíre passing the sins of the prior regime onto the current one.

You're right. They're doing a great job.


How many games is it you think they would have won if they had drafted Darnold or Rosen? 12? 14? Would we all be talking about the Giants game tomorrow?

This team sucked last year. With the first pick they selected the Offensive Rookie of the Year. You think that strategy was flawed because someone else would have made them winners this year? How many wins did Darnold get the Jets? Rosen for the Cardinals?

You are absolutely blind to anything that is not your opinion. You may need to someday consider the possibility that you are not infallible.

Congrats Saquon! Glad to see the Giants landed the best player in the draft.

Always have to RIP the QB...well I have news for you he can still play and I would like to see both him and Saquon play behind a good OL...
Predictable thread

We wouldn't have won more than a handful of games no matter who we drafted and we won't be good for awhile.....to many bad drafts the last several years and a new GM that trades away two good players for next to nothing. Who do you see as our QB in three years when hopefully we've fixed this mess?

Congrats to SB though. Hes a great player just like Barry Sanders was.
