    I’m a Giants fan and when we make a move I try to give them the benefit of the doubt.

    But we just traded a 3rd and likely 4th rounder for a two month rental of a defensive tackle when we already are pretty solid at that spot, and we are 2-6.

    It’s mind blowing that they didn’t just wait and try to get him in free agency. Let’s say he comes to the Giants and does really well... then his price tag goes up!

    The thing that has always concerned me about Gettleman is he seems to fall in love with certain players and overpay them. It feels like the wrong way to go about things.

    Also if the Steelers lose this I think Tomlin is officially toast this year.

    If his price goes up, the compensatory pick goes up, unless the Giants deep dive into free agency despite their rebuild, which is certainly possible because their GM is an idiot.

    I think that, even if they don't make the playoffs and aren't even really in contention for them, Tomlin will be given one more shot after this year. Losing your franchise QB so early in the season, though not the main reason for their struggles, definitely plays a large role in it (see: almost every team that has lost their franchise QB early in the season for the history of the NFL with a few notable exceptions). He's earned enough leeway that they'll give him another chance. But if the same thing happens next year, especially with a healthy QB from the start of the season he's definitely gone.

    I then see him moving to another team and doing well, maybe even making the playoffs. I don't know if he'll ever win another ring as a HC though.

    Ironically this was a bad tanking move by the Dolphins. They own the Steelers pick, and control their #1 seed destiny still throughout the season even if they won today as they play the Bengals. A loss to bengals later on means even if they had beat the Steelers, they still pick first overall. So really all they did was make their Steelers pick worse. Amateur hour by the Dolphins.

    Apparently the Cowboys are in serious talks to trade for Jamal Adams from the Jets.

    Source: Jets have indeed engaged in trade conversations with the Cowboys involving Jamal Adams, as @Rapsheet said.

    My understanding is that Adams would welcome the change of scenery back to his hometown.

    Yeah I think Tomlin survives unless the bottom falls out on this team.

    Which it would have had they lost to the tanking Dolphins.




    Speaking of the Dolphins, I see Xavien Howard is headed to IR, and they traded for the on-IR Aqib Talib... and a draft pick. The Dolphins are embracing The Process so hard they're now doing salary dump trades for guys on IR.

    aaaand it fell through because the Jets wanted a Ramsey type deal and thta was too much for us. Which, Im fine with because coaching is probably the bigger problem.

    It is not called "football" because of how you propel the ball. Tis called "football" because you play it on your feet and not on the back of a horse.

    Another Beckham check in!

    7 games, 488 yards
    55% completion rate (career low)
    8 yds/target (career low excluding the season he played 4 games)
    1 touchdown

    Number of times he has publicly criticized the coach staff: 1
    Number of times he stated that playing with Tom Brady was a dream of his: 1

    Meanwhile, the first rounder the Giants got from the trade turned into Dexter Lawrence, who looks legit. Giants might have won that trade.

    I've been worried about Brandin Cooks since lately it seems like he ends more games with a concussion than not. Apparently he is consulting a specialist, and I'm glad everyone else is noticing and taking care of the fact that he has become concussion prone.

    I've always thought he was overrated... He gave Brady those GOAT cleets and that creeped me out..

    Looks like no trade for the Panthers before the deadline. I honestly thought we'd either try to get Anderson or AJ Green. I even saw somewhere that Jets were trying to shop Le'veon before the deadline. I think this is the second year in a row we didn't trade for someone. Gonna have to trust Hurney knows what he's doing. Allen starting again this week. I dunno if Cam is really still rehabbing or if Riverboat Ron is wanting to see how Allen responds after the major bed shitting that happened on Sunday.

    AJ Green goes free agent at the end of this season, so I'm sure most people are waiting around for that.

    Bengals have some questions to answer in the next 8 games, is Green still healthy and productive? Do they have something in Finley? Wouldn't be too difficult to extend AJ if they cut Dalton loose and save his salary, but a lot will have to go right first, otherwise its full on rebuild and big salary for receiver seems less likely.

    I know Dalton is pissed that they benched him instead of trading him before the deadline. Have to agree with some of the sports analysts, he'd be great at Tennessee or in Chicago.

    Bengals did my boy Dalton dirty. Free Dalton! Free AJ Green!
