Rashawn Slater: don't chip Myles Garret so I can block him

widmerseyebrow : 10/13/2021 12:25 pm
one on one. This is according to running back Austin Ekeler after LA's win over Cleveland.

So glad the Giants didn't draft Slater. You don't need that kind of selfishness on a team when you're trying to build a winner.
Your mad about

an extra 1st and Toney?
I guess I should say I like Toney  
widmerseyebrow : 10/13/2021 12:29 pm : link
before people take this super seriously. Slater is a beast though.
Doesnt sound selfish to me  
Koffman : 10/13/2021 12:32 pm : link
Sounds like Slater is confident and wants a piece of Garrett.

I know.
An odd post about from the OP.

Anyway, so far Toney looks great and I was big on getting Slater.
Didn't Andrew Thomas have a good game vs Garrett last year

I was a big critic of Andrew Thomas and a big supporter of Slater  
90.Cal : 10/13/2021 12:53 pm : link
But how can anyone complain about the extra 1 and Toney right now?
Parsons shoulda been the pick

Yep. That's the joke.
your sarcasm has fallen  
Platos : 10/13/2021 1:01 pm : link
on retarded ears lolol
Love Rashawn Slater who everyone thought was a guard before the draft  
Rick in Dallas : 10/13/2021 1:03 pm : link
So far at LT since the season started :
293 snaps
1 penalty
0 sacks

I get the excitement we now have on KT's play the last 2 games but RS is a beast at LT when everyone thought he was just a OG.Barring injury RS is going to be an all pro LT IMHO.

I wanted him so bad during the draft.

You can never tell sarcasm from stupidity on BBI.
We needed Slater...  
bw in dc : 10/13/2021 1:18 pm : link
more than Toney. AT could have moved to RT and Slater would anchor LT. Then we would have quality, young bookends.

Agreed.
Watched a good amount of Charger game last week and  
NYGgolfer : 10/13/2021 1:21 pm : link
Slater looks outstanding in both run and pass blocking. Would never know he was a rookie.

That probably should have been the pick although agree difficult to pass on the extra #1 next year.
Slater’s excellence has been a surprise right?  
cosmicj : 10/13/2021 1:21 pm : link
People liked him but I don’t think anyone projected him as a lockdown LT.

Jeremiah did.

I loved him anywhere on the line.
Well, it’s an opportunity for real personnel evaluators  
cosmicj : 10/13/2021 1:26 pm : link
To do a “lessons learned” because Slater looking like this means a lot of NFL scouts missed on some traits.
And good for you

Giants weren't gonna spend another high #1  
JonC : 10/13/2021 1:30 pm : link
on OL.
s/b OT  
JonC : 10/13/2021 1:31 pm : link
they were looking at OG (AVT) after the trade down and the Jets picked him.
I said all along during the draft that Slater was a OT  
Rick in Dallas : 10/13/2021 1:32 pm : link
but almost all the BBI draft experts said he could only play OG. WRONG!!!
i love slater  
GiantsFan84 : 10/13/2021 1:55 pm : link
but with how toney looks, i don't think it's fair to criticze the trade down. let's see what that pick turns into next year and if aaron robinson is a good player (remember we used the bears pick to trade up and get him).

Thomas and Peart

I really liked his versatility. Slater can also play C along with G and T.

You can never have enough great OLs. That's what Slater is trending to...

No becaise their offensive line is young and the Giants wanted them to develop as the starterz, most they were going to do was add depth

Overrating their young prospects has been a problem with the last two regimes. A better starter is a better starter versus looking for holes to fill...
I would prefer the Giants get  
Jay on the Island : 10/13/2021 3:01 pm : link
Toney
2022 Bears 1st and 4th round picks.

What if the Giants come away with an OL equal to or close to Slater with the Bears 2022 1st round pick? Slater would be player RT or G with the Giants with Thomas set at LT. If Peart locks down the RT job then the Giants will be in great shape as they could land the top Guard in the draft with one of their 1st round picks.

Then the Giants will have a great young guard to go with their dynamic young WR Toney. Slater is good but I would still prefer the trade without a doubt.
I'll say we didnt need Slater or Toney.  
Dinger : 10/13/2021 3:06 pm : link
We needed a pass rusher or a MLB who's a difference maker. We got Azeez at two and a bunch of other crap on defense. Why is our 3rd and 4th picks not on the field(I know injury) like our 2nd last year? Not that I have much hope for them as our evaluation sucks, but honestly, we haven't had a imppactful defensive pick in I cant remember how long. I like Dexter and he's gtting double teamed a ton, but thats it. His specialty is getting double teamed. Bakers gone McKinney is JAG, every linebacker we've taken in the last 10 years seems to be JAG or worse. We haven't picked a decent edge since JPP. We pick CB's like they're apples and they rot quicker than bananas.

This team has many holes so I do not understand why you want just Slater over Toney, the Bears 1st and 4th round picks next year, plus the 5th round pick they used to trade up for Aaron Robinson who we haven't seen yet.

If Toney was struggling I would understand but we saw how incredible he can be last week. Thomas was playing incredible prior to his injury and apparently many have given up on Peart already just as they did to Thomas after the NE preseason game.

I am as tired as the OL struggling as you are but I would much rather have Toney plus those two picks including another first that could be used on a young stud OL.
The Bears are 3-2,

I get your POV. Toney is a dynamic player.

But finding high level OLs is one of the hardest things to do in the NFL. And with five crucial spots, I'd rather add the top OL prospect, especially because the hit rate is very high in the first round for OLs, and get a WR later.

I'd feel better about this team right now with the bookends of AT and RS than having Toney. I would bet Jones and Barkley feel similarly...

Thomas locked Garrett down last year. One of his best games. Garret had 1 pressure vs Giants a year ago, he had 7 on Sunday vs the Chargers. He has also been excellent against Chase Young. I don't think this was a Thomas/Slater post..I think the stimulus for this post comes off the heels of the Dallas game..where our already injured line lost the services of Thomas and went out and had their worst game of the season by far(against a team that's the gold standard for stockpiling offensive lineman).

Fixing the Giants roster feels like playing whack-a-mole.

Bonn be one of those guys. “I told you so. “. Sorry couldn’t help myself. Seriously never understood the game the could be a top 5 pick. They were a play off team last year and upgrades at quarterback.

Defense is for real too

As mentioned, I shouldn't allow political content into my posts. That was a mistake.

What's your excuse for bad posting?
