Factoring in age isn't odd  
ajr2456 : 3/14/2019 8:16 pm : link
when in three years, likely when this team has a shot at competing one will be 29 and the other 34. There's more potential upside to having Crowder in the final year of his deal in 2021, hopefully in year three of our new QB than Golden Tate who is probably cut after year two.

Golden Tate is a very good player. Golden Tate also probably should have taken the Patriots offer if the rumors of them wanting him was true. Golden Tate on the Giants is a short term move to try to be a competitive team next year. If Graziano's reports are true they're essentially running it back with the same plan as last year, just without Odell - and that's troubling.

I pay for season tickets, I don't want the Giants to suck. I don't want to watch the Cowboys and Eagles battle for the division while we struggle. Despite what it may seem like I'm not rooting against the Giants. I'm over taking the wait and see approach for a front office who hasn't given any reason to trust them the last two years or an ownership group who hasn't given a reason the last seven years to trust them.

"great veteran leadership for the position group" is one of the most cliche and overblown things football fans and front offices say. That's the same reason we wasted money on Stewart.

Second,

Humpries and Crowder being better than Tate now is irrelevant because the Giants aren't going to be good this year. All three players will likely be cuttable after 2 years, but there's a chance Humphries and Crowder are still good in 2 years and can be a bargain WR option when they are ready to compete.

Signing Golden Tate was a short term move, this team should be making long term moves.



Well A) You don't think being better is important good to know. I mean if you think Golden Tate is over paid and they aren't as good they wouldn't that make them extremely over paid? B) They signed before we actually were able to trade OBJ soooo were they options?

There is no such thing as long term in the NFL now. Wake up.


If you wake up and connect the dots that Odell trade didn't just come out of nowhere. They probably had discussed it for a while and it likely led to them being ok with letting Collins walk with no tag.

Golden Tate isn't over paid for Golden Tate, he's just not a right fit for a rebuilding team - if we even are one.

I don't like that.

I understand this is the kind of guy they want on the team, but he is way on the downside of his career.

We need a RT and C, and soon.

I donít get how these are big moves?  
mattyblue : 3/14/2019 8:25 pm : link
I am glad to see people have optimism and feel good about the moves, I sincerely wish I did. I donít think they are bad, Golden Tate is definitely an odd signing considering things, and Markus Golden is on a 1 year deal and while I havenít really watched him much he isnít really some amazing get is he? I am not trying to be a pessimist, I am sincerely asking about Markus Golden. I donít think there is a free agent out there currently that would get me excited about this upcoming season. I am all for being wrong though, so sick of watching them lose so much
we're rebuilding..  
FranchiseQB : 3/14/2019 8:26 pm : link
why did we add an aging receiver. these moves make no sense.

Barnwell is correct analyzing this signing:

"Do you remember "Memento," the movie in which Guy Pearce's short-term memory was destroyed and he lost the ability to remember anything in the recent past? Is it possible the Giants are struggling with the same condition? Days after trading Odell Beckham Jr. to signal that they were going to build around Saquon Barkley and the running game, the Giants reversed course and gave Tate a four-year deal with $23.5 million fully guaranteed at signing.

It's bizarre for many reasons. To start, while the franchise buried Beckham on his way out of town and called him a distraction, the Giants responded by signing a wideout who was cited while with the Seahawks for breaking into a doughnut store and who reportedly got into a fistfight with Percy Harvin the week before the Super Bowl. (To be clear, I don't think those are actual character concerns, but they're more meaningful than, say, getting into a fight with a kicking net or simulating urination during a touchdown celebration.)"

SGMen : 3/14/2019 8:31 pm : link
He has two years left easy, maybe 3. We are in rebuild mode. This leads me to think the Giants may trade Shepard on draft day if not sooner? A package to move up? For all we know the Giants want Bosa at #2. LOL
Heís not just a slot WR  
trueblueinpw : 3/14/2019 8:42 pm : link
Tate can do it all and while he isnít a burner he can get behind a defense and make players from the X. He makes big plays and catches the ball in big spots and heís been YAC master. He stays on the field. Solid signing.

Obviously what those numbers donít tell you is the situations those drops occurred... 3rd down, endzone etc. In other words, all drops arenít created equal. And secondly and perhaps more importantly, there were many 50/50 balls that are NOT considered ďdropsĒ but Shep did NOT come up with. So i respect the stats but we know stats donít tell the whole story. Shep is not who ppl think he is.... weíve had 3 seasons to see that.

Did you watch every Golden Tate target this year to give yourself a fair comparison.

Regarding your post after this, sure Tate is better now and it's Shep's last year but the likely hood is that Shepard ascends while Tate descends. Moving on from Shepard because of Tate is backwards

Okay, Iíll play. Who?



This was in response to Eric saying if they suck they can trade Tate, but I'll play.

Jamison Crowder, 25 more upside long term than Golden Tate
Adam Humpries, 26 more upside long term than Golden Tate

Both got less money and less guarantees and there is at least a chance one of those players could contribute at what will be considered a bargain when the Giants are ready to compete. Golden Tate won't be here when they are ready to compete.


Crowder signed before the OBJ trade. So you would have been okay with his contract if we signed him not knowing the trade?

Adam Humphries. Well, he stated to play fairly well but he had the benefit of Evans drawing the bulk of the coverage. Plus, there was Jackson, Howard, and Goodwin. So he caught a ton of underneath stuff...he barely averaged 10 per reception.

So Iím not sure those are the best answers.

Sure I can't discount the small probability that Shep will ascend this year. However, he's had 3 years to show us something including games with no OBJ last year and a subpar receiving corp., and I was rather unimpressed. Don't think he'll be resigned.

EricJ : 3/14/2019 10:11 pm : link
you should all go back and read the 10 pages of posts and just step back for a minute to realize how moronic some of you are.

1. Tate is not a replacement for OBJ
2. Tate should not be compared to Shep. This is not an either/or thing between the two of them. They are independent of each other. Comparing drop rates, age and money just shows how much some of you have no idea WTF you are talking about.

Adding Tate right now does a few things..

He is a veteran WR who is tough, a hard worker, a professional and is a solid team mate. He is also depth and a starter at the same time. Depth has been a problem with this team for a while.

Stop worrying about the money. Some people here cannot even balance their own checkbooks and are screaming about the Giants cap.

You can expect this team to still add a guy who can stretch the field. The over reaction and knee jerk comments are just out of control now.

This team is going to surprise many pundits this year. They are going to run the ball, stop the run and hit some big plays on play action with solid specials. Defense is going to be hungry, aggressive and I think Betcher is going to love coaching them and the players are going to lay it out for them with growing pains.

I was a little down on Shurmer early in the season. He kept them together, they got better and he is growing and understands NFC East football and the what made the Giants the Giants when they were good. Let's hope for the best and nice to see the GM and HC with a shared vision. Be patient, we are making progress.

This signing continues to show they want tough football players.


Like your optimism LOS . Hope you are right. Waiting to see the final moves to shore up the remaining weak spots.

Our receiving core is NOT weak now. People forget we have an RB that catches 70+ balls and has downfield capability. We have one of the better receiving TEs who is a 4.4 guy , and Shep who is a very good slot guy. And now Tate who has been a mutliple 1000+ yard reciever and is not that old.

Losing Beckham took us from possibly the best all around receivers in the entire NFL (or top 3 at worst) when you factor RB and TE to now a good to very good group depending on if Tate shows the same burst he had in previous stops.

Because we all know this has to be the focal point of every football discussion, the giants are adding players via fa. They obviously have some room to do things as itís happening right before our eyes. And next year a shit load of money comes off the books so why is everyone so worried about dead money? It happens. Dallas deals with tons of dead money nearly every off season and they have been doing just fine.

The money isnít a problem at all. The giants are plugging holes with fa and building through the draft. DG had a good draft last year. Hopefully he has another good one this year, heís got a ton of picks. This is good right? Cheer up.

Tate is a good player, and they got him at a good price. Look at the market for wide receivers, Tate is right in line with other players of his caliber. Crowder and Humphries as were mentioned earlier got similar deals, Tate is a better player than both of them.
The age argument is absurd. This isnít a running back we are discussing, receivers often play into their mid 30s at a high level. Desean Jackson is a year older and just got a deal in the same ballpark as Tate. Antonio Brown is the same age as Tate, and nobody mentions his age as a reason Oakland shouldnít have made the move for him. Taken into the context of where his contract is and comparing it to other players around the league, we got ourselves a guy that consistently puts up 90 receptions, 1000 yards, and 5 TDs at about half the cost of what top receivers get paid.

I donít know how anybody can watch Tate play and not be impressed by him as a football player. He has the type of body, too, that I think will hold up well into his mid-30s. Iíve always seen a lot of Hines Ward in him...

Funny that you bring up chess and wanting us fans to look at the team like we are playing chess. Alpha Zero learned how to beat the best chess computer in the world before it in 3 hours.

There are people that can program these types of systems out there for us to hire, other teams have people of this ilk, no evidence that we do. We have people advocating for viewing our moves like chess with a leader that doesn't seem to understand how to apply the best ways to win at chess today. These same people advocate patience while we have become the laughing stock of the league. Great, really great.

NoGainDayne : 3/15/2019 1:09 am : link
anyone that thinks they have bw pigeon holed to a type of thinking is completely wrong.

Definitely has opinions on Giants management that frankly more people should have even if he is strong with them but definitely a wild card.

A few weeks ago told me that he didn't necessarily believe in team building with WRs but now seems in support of this move. I think it is very easy to like Tate as a player but not having problems with this move while advocating a rebuild is definitely a hot take.

I'm down on this move because it again seems overall inconsistent with any kind of plan or format that has worked. The closest comp I can think to a team that won with a plan resembling anything like this is the Broncos with Peyton Manning, maybe all the way back to Dilfer or Brad Johnson but you know what all those teams had in common? Fantastic defenses.

Hard to defend this approach with our defense and again if you had any inclination that this was your plan, I just can't comprehend how you move Snacks for a 4th rounder.

Can't understand all the disgruntled opinions...  
M.S. : 3/15/2019 6:38 am : link

...about Golden Tate! He is a very fine receiver with a knack of taking short to intermediate passes and turning them into big gains.

And don't be fooled by his supposed drop in productivity... he was traded in mid-season and it takes awhile to learn a new system and be properly / optimally integrated into that system.

And last but not least, it is totally unfair to compare this player with OBJ. Golden Tate has to be judged in his own right. He is a very solid football player and ranked, for example, as the 27th best free agent by NFL.com.
What the two Goldens do is they

Give you a little but more wiggle room in the draft.

The rest hopefully depends on value.

For myself, being biased towards D and with this particular draft being very, apparently very, strong on D fronts, I'm hoping that sort of value discipline lasts the entire draft.

Folks biased towards O seem less aware of their bias and more likely to apply hope or projections to offense prospects, and therefore to loose discipline a bit.

I was just thinking that, by signing Golden Tate, the Giants won't feel forced to go WR at #17. I'd love to snag, for example, Devin White at #6 and maybe someone like Devin Bush at #17, or a nice two-way TE such as TJ Hockenson.

Taken into the context of where his contract is and comparing it to other players around the league, we got ourselves a guy that consistently puts up 90 receptions, 1000 yards, and 5 TDs at about half the cost of what top receivers get paid.


Excellent points, thanks. By the way, Julio Jones and AJ Green I believe are also both 30. Anyone want to diss these guys too. Tate has never missed any games and is in great shape. Playing till 34 is no big deal.
Golden Tate is a good player

and he's not being paid like Julio Jones or AJ Green.

His AAV right now puts him as the 23rd highest paid WR in the NFL, 1 spot ahead of Desean Jackson and 1 spot behind Jamison Crowder.

I agree with you that he's a good player. He's at least on a FMV contract even if there are guys in that same range that would be preferable for whatever reason. His production consistency and durability stand out however IMO.

5superbowls brought up Julio and Greens age and said nobody is dissing them.

So no I didnít miss the point.
