Giants fun defense since acquisition of Williams, 2.7 ypc

Against some pretty good backs. So, why has there been as much negativity directed towards this player/ and move as there has been.

I can't believe the Giants are in a position to entertain the risk and headache of a good not very good player like Williams in a franchise tag scenario.

That distinction should be held for the very best of players.

The Giants best case scenario is to get out of this signing a good not very good player to a contract that doesn't push the top of the market.

This is silly.

We

were already out of contention when the trade was made, and the cost was likely pick #65 or #66 on a team with a lot of holes, and GM who stubbornly refuses to ever trade down. There is also a real concern that DG will overpay Williams to justify the draft capital he spent to get him. I was initially OK with the trade, but it was a bad move.
Williams is a good player I'll reserve judgement on the trade...  
Torrag : 12/8/2019 1:20 pm : link
until I see how it plays out. Personally I'd like to retain him but numbers matter. If they can sign him now at fair value or tag him for leverage then extend him at a reasonable number that would make sense. Obviously trading multiple picks in a losing season then having the player walk would be a failure.

Bill2 : 12/8/2019 1:39 pm : link
Imo, this is hardly 1/2/3 on the debit side of DG's record.

If we got Williams in the 3rd round it would be an odds defining draft choice. One of the holes is a pass rush.

As a poster said above, pass rushing is harder than it used to be ( many offenses are designed to get the ball out quicker) and it requires pressure from the ends and the middle.

The DL/OLB are 1-2 players away.

If the contract is not outrageous (of course it will be to those who already have a conclusion and shove every not yet proven data point into the negative column) this is not the big issue or one of the next critical items to get right in 2020

DT is one of the positions, like DB, or OT that takes more than one year to round into full ability. Lets see what we have in DL next year. With Tomlinson and Hill it could be a good rotation once you add one pass rusher.

There isn't a fast or good solution for bad when their are 7 draft slots per year ( with an overall NFL abysmal success rate once below the 3rd round) and 53 positions ( plus 6-10 to account for in season injuries) and an average of 3.8 years of tenure.

Amazing sense of realistic expectations on a site that specializes in "analysis".

Judging that is long past time tired of losing overall is not the same as its time to judge each slice and aspect of that result. Negative confirmation bias and foreshortened assessment period are just two more ways things can stay bad

imo

I'll tell you why it's a bad idea. Because LS is not worth the cap space. He's really nothing special. He's a redundancy at a position where we appear to have some pretty good parts.

The expected FT for DTs is going to be close to $16M. I can think of a few more positions where that money could be invested instead...

christian : 12/8/2019 1:58 pm : link
Bill, my view is Williams has played 5 years and is has shown to touch the "good" column as a pass rusher in a few not all of those years. But let's for argument sake round him up to the good column as a benefit of maturation and assumed better scenery, and add in he has a clear good impact on the run game.

He's definitely not in the very good, or great category. Good player, and the type of player the Giants need.

I actually don't care about the pick(s), sunk cost. I hope management doesn't care either. The picks and perception are baggage, and only play into the emotional component now. Management should signal to his reps the picks don't mean shit to them, it's not leverage, don't be naive and assume it is.

The Giants need to view Williams for who he is and value him according to what they value a good, not very, no great defensive end.

If a team with more resources values him more, walk.

Too many players on the roster Gettleman "had to pay," "had no alternative," "needed for stabilizing."

I think Williams is a good player. I felt the same about Ogletree.

I hated both trades because I think the team needs young, cost-controlled players to begin growing. Trading picks for those guys when the team (in my view) is so far away strikes me as poor decision making.

Especially in the Williams case when he's going to be a free agent.

Yeah, we really improved the pass rush with LW. He's been averaging a robust 3.5 sacks/yr over his five years in the NFL. And he's hot this year with zero.

Definitely on the fast track to Canton...

Good player  
AcesUp : 12/8/2019 2:09 pm : link
Collassally stupid trade that should have people questioning the decision making of the triggerman. Holes all over the place when he gets here on a roster that actually has Tomlinson and Snacks on the interior and he's already spent 1/3 of our draft picks (that are now forced to the bench), two future draft picks and presumably a large contract on run stuffing interior DL in a passing league. So we're left with a potentially solid run d that teams can gash through the air for 30+ points a game. Great.

Really looking forward to the brand new coaching staff that has even less of a need for 300lb defensive lineman than the current scheme that is one of the few that actually favor the position.

Mid-round picks are call options - low probability of success. I don't think the Giants should be selling those assets for someone like Williams or Ogletree.

Who wants to play for this team? This is not an attractive place to play which means we have to over pay to get players to come here.

My personal view is to not build at the top end of free agency until you are confident in your core group.

Paying the most money for the luxury of being the highest bidder, while your roster is lean just never feels like the right answer.

Leonard Williams isn't the only lineman who could make the Giants better. If he wants more than the Giants value him at, they need to let him walk.

The Giants aren't Leonard Williams away from the playoffs.

Bill2 : 12/8/2019 3:58 pm : link
I don't think he is a great player by any stretch.

My point it that as we Giants fans know more than most, a good pass rush against a playoff level OL requires several things:

1) More than 3 players who are well able to penetrate. All three help each other

2) Penetration from up the middle and the edges. ( Some qb's are average fore a QB on timing and eye when there is edge pressure but drop their eyes if it comes up the center. Witness Eli as one example)

3) A rotation that can still pressure late in the season when 1-2 ot the top guys no longer have their legs for the whole game.

When we had all 3 we won in 2007. In 2008, the reason some analysts thought we did not go as far as our early season promise indicated, was not just the Plaxico crap but because our DL ran out of gas in the last few games and did not have the legs as a unit.

So do I think Williams is the pass rusher we need? Do I confuse him with Donald? Not at all.

Depending on the contract he might be a better than average DT and DT's are not easy to find. We especially know that it is unlikely that they get better in round 3. They also take awhile to get better (hence my hope that Dexter Lawrence gets better in year 2 and 3).

Now, I see a lot of folks pining for an edge rusher and in particular, hoping for such in round 1.

Not going to be fun watch said prize draft choice get doubled and chipped with nothing to show for it for the entire NYG.

Now, did we have to trade a 3rd to get Williams? Separate issue and separate target for our ire. imo, lets separate Williams the player from Williams the off season contract from DG the trader. Three different things, imo. Better analysis of whats right and wrong follows keeping oranges , apples and bananas apart.

Make sense christian?

PS: Hope you are well

Bill2 : 12/8/2019 4:06 pm : link
Its usually 7 picks every year. The NFl averages below 20% after round 3.

So filling a 53 player roster when the average tenure is 3.9 years takes 1) time and some FA (of which some play to contract ( Rolle, Pierce, Plax and McKenzie) and most do not.

The game is built to entrance those who can stay frustrated for most years out of 10.

For me, its losing interest as an entertainment product and I don't see how it lasts past the first serious penetrations of the injury lawyers
...  
christian : 12/8/2019 4:13 pm : link
Agreed. Good player who fits a need and will be a multiplier.

As posted above, the pick is gone, and hopefully out the equation. My view on Gettleman is declining, but an argument for another thread.

The question is value, an unknown number to us fans, but a number I hope the Giants management sticks to, regardless of the acquisition cost.

I fear this is an outlying bad market to shop, with a lot of good teams at the top of the spending pool. There are 5-7 teams with significant cap room, who are a Williams away from winning one or more playoff games.

Hope you are well too, Bill.

Peop continue to torture logic in an attempt to prove the Giants right  
jcn56 : 12/8/2019 11:40 pm : link
On the one hand, they argue the Giants need to grow organically by drafting better and that they won't build the team via FA (a continual knock at Reese's last stand in 2016)...

..and on the other, they're OK with forking over a high 3rd and 4th round pick for the right to either franchise a player who's made a grand total of 1 Pro Bowl in 5 years (assuming he doesn't make it this year), isn't known for being a pass rusher, and has never been an All Pro.

Build the team via the draft does not equal trade away two picks and overpay for a guy who you're hoping will develop into more than he's shown in 5 years to date.
JCN re: the need for picks  
Eric on Li : 12/9/2019 12:01 am : link
you are correct - the worst aspect of the LW trade is losing the pick. That's in part why I hope they tag LW and just treat him like a rental for next year (with an option to obviously extend). See how he looks in 2020 and if he isn't clearly a core player recoup the pick. Or let him play out the year and let him walk for a comp pick.

The way the league works now it's a lot easier to recycle assets to get picks than it used to be. I don't mind leveraging mid-round picks to avoid needing to make too many massive overpays via FA with long term risk for unproven players.
Tagging him is even worse  
jcn56 : 12/9/2019 12:05 am : link
What you call recouping the pick would require that either someone trade the Giants a high 3rd and 4th to break even, or they're out one or more of those picks AND a year of FT salary at the DT position.

The only way any of this works is if Williams is a break out player who has underperformed to this point in his career. That's a big bet to make on a guy who has been a solid but inconsistent player for 5 years in the NFL.

Most people on this board say he is going to get this insane contract that will strap the Giants to upgrade at other locations, which in reality even if he did sign some top dline contract it still wouldnít prevent them from signing anyone else they want. Itís hard to find any examples of teams not signing players they legitimately wanted because of cap space. Cap space is something fans love to talk about but has really no legit bearing on nfl signings. You can maneuver cap space so easily.

Um... wat...?

Clearly you feel otherwise - care to explain?

The worst contracts that the Giants have had to clean up were either contracts that Gettleman himself gave out, or contracts that Gettleman chose not to clean up anyway and left on the books.

What cap killers did he actually get rid of? Snacks? Vernon? Apple was cheap and would have been coming off the books this offseason anyway (assuming the Giants would not have picked up his 5th year option if the only goal was to get rid of him). Flowers was a failure but would have been off the books now too. Ellison is a bad contract but it's still on the books, with additional guaranteed money pressed forward because of this year's dead money. You can make the case that Eli should have been cut this offseason but wasn't.

Meanwhile, Gettleman's original hog mollies, Solder and Omameh, represent a cap albatross and a dead money sinkhole. We-didn't-sign-him-to-trade-him OBJ became a huge red number on this year's cap. Stewart was a waste. Barwin was useless. Bethea is stealing money.

There is no logical argument that anyone can make at this point that Gettleman's cap efforts have been to clean up anyone's mess more than his own.

Anything over $12 million is unreasonable for Williams and erases the reasoning that they had to trade for him because it would be easier to keep him.

christian : 12/9/2019 8:57 am : link
One point I made above that I hope the Giants are considering, is the amount of money available in the near term spending pool, and whether a team literally starting from the bottom should be shopping aggressively.

There is over 4B in cap space in the league over the next 2 years. Typically the first 2 years of a contract hold the most fully guaranteed money.

There are teams like the Colts, Bills, Ravens, Patriots, Cowboys, and Raiders with huge sums to spend, and are all in the hunt right now.

If there is ever a time to spend up the market it's when you 1) have a bunch of money and 2) are good.

There is going to be a very rich market for him, I hope the Giants have a number and stick to it. He's not a great player, not the type of player you get in a bidding or a franchise tag pissing match over.

And the last the thing the Giants should do is make a poor decision because of having traded for him.
The argument that he's not worth a 3rd rnd pick...  
Johnny5 : 12/9/2019 9:00 am : link
... is pretty silly. The guy can play and personally I'd love to add him as a core player while adding some more (and better) pure pass rushing talent.

And he put BJ into a rotational role. Our DL has been the best part of the team over the past few games. We don't have enough pure pass rushing, and obviously we know how poor our LB and secondary is.

The ONLY reason I would scratch my head on that trade is Why in the hell are we giving up a pick when he isn't signed.

Is irrelevant. He thinks he should be paid well. Whether thatís him thinking heís worth $18 million and is shooting for $20 million doesnít matter.

Anything over $12 million is unreasonable for Williams and erases the reasoning that they had to trade for him because it would be easier to keep him.



You and I aren't going to see eye to eye on this
My whole point is when he signs his contract then we will know. You are arguing that we know already. I don't agree with that.


No Iím arguing that Williams has a high value of himself and signing isnít going to be easier or cheaper because we traded for him.

You can keep ďwaiting and seeingĒ and trusting this front office but I wonít. Theyíre incompetent

I never said I trust the FO. I like to wait before celebrating a success or lamenting a failure. It's that simple.
