Chat with Ohm Youngmisuk

Ohm
  (12:30 PM)

Be on in five mins... doing a radio interview

Ohm
  (12:31 PM)

keep the questions coming

Ohm
  (12:37 PM)

sorry guys, I am back... done with the 1050 report.

Shakoor (Newark)

Wassup Ohm, Whats goin on with Kenny Phillips knee will he miss significant time and wassup with kiwi?

Ohm
  (12:38 PM)

Shakoor... what up man? KP was back in practice today. Coughlin says every Wednesday they are going to take it easy with the safety to make sure he doesn't suffer any setbacks. Sounds like a good plan to me. Latest on Kiwi is no news. Just waiting and gathering more information from doctors according to Coughlin.

Joe (Detroit)

Sparty sucks.

Ohm
  (12:39 PM)

Joe... when was the last time Michigan beat State? In basketball or football? Been like over 1,000 days I believe.

Chris Fiegler (Latham,NY)

What did you think of the New Meadowlands Stadium?

Ohm
  (12:40 PM)

CF... kind of gray and dull if you ask me. I am a guy who likes shiny stuff... for that amount of money... I would want something gaudy. LOL.

Chris (Manalapan NJ)

With the Vikings coming off a bye week, and this weekend being the Patriots bye, Randy Moss will have no bye week. Are there any rules saying if a player can play all 17 weeks?

Ohm
  (12:41 PM)

Chris... I have no idea. Good question. But I don't think there is. Never thought about it though to tell you the truth. But I don't think there is. You would have heard about it by now.

Snooki (Jersey Shore)

Did you see me clobber Angelina? That was for you Ohm!

Ohm
  (12:41 PM)

I DID!!!!! That was crazy. Snooki went to town. I wish Angelina would move back in!

Mike (Danbury, CT)

Whud up Ohmboy! Whats the word on Bradshaw's ankle, it seems minor, and I heard he should practice today so I just wanted to hear the latest from the greatest.... but I'll settle for hearing it from you! J-K You do a great job man, keep it up!

Ohm
  (12:42 PM)

Thanks dude... Bradshaw was not out there for the first 30 mins. As we went back in, he walked out with helmet in hand but it doesn't appear he will do much at all today. Coughlin will update us later on his status. But he said he will play this week. Then again, he said he would practice today too. He might have been getting treatment or another exam.

Eddy (Jersey/Ga)

Will the Giants make any moves to help the team back up their Oline, LB or TE?

Ohm
  (12:43 PM)

E, it's always a possibility. There's a report that they took a look at Guy Whimper. If O'Hara can't come back, they could make a move. Who knows what they will do with O'Hara or say Will Beatty... possible IR?

Hounds (Baltimore)

Favre with Moss vs the Jets D or Flacco vs Den? I have Ray Rice (just traded for him) and AP going as well. Also have Jets D. I hate routing for my QB vs my D but with Randy in the picture, it's hard not to! I just picked up the Giants D too so that's another option.

Ohm
  (12:46 PM)

Hounds... good job getting Ray Rice... what you deal for him? I refuse to believe that he is going to be this bad. I think you go Flacco homey... Randy may have to deal with Revis... I know he beat him last time... and I know it's tempting. I love playing players on Monday Night. Especially gamers like Randy. I think you got to go Jets d over Giants d... tough one my friend. I wouldn't blame you for playing Favre at all... But I think Flacco is safer bet. But I totally understand why you would play Favre. Go with your gut homeboy.

Eddie (Bridgewater, NJ)

Is Coughlin ready to put this childish vendetta aside and give Jacobs significant playing time?

Ohm
  (12:46 PM)

Eddie... LOL! Childish vendetta. Love it. Well, he may not have a choice this week. Even if Bradshaw plays, may have to get the big fella in there more.

Jeremy (Rockland)

OHM!!!! Thinking about benching both Bradshaw and Steve Smith this week..... right move?

Ohm
  (12:48 PM)

J... if you are in PPR... start Smith. I think Giants will have to air it out. As for Bradshaw... if he practices Friday, I'd say start him. Monitor him. If he is a game-time decision and then plays... consider him a flex option. If he plays, he will play under any pain. He is a warrior. And hard to bench after last week. But just keep an eye on his injury.

Ken (Brooklyn)

If the G-Men had held down Chris Johnson and Devin Hester, what is the best way to hold down Arian Foster? Who would be the key guy to stopping him?

Ohm
  (12:48 PM)

Kenny... gotta be a gang mentality. Fill those gaps, be sound and go big up front. Cofield and Canty have been great. And then rotate Tuck, Osi, JPP, Bernard and/or Joseph.

J. Ford (Omaha, NE)

Rio Bravo or The Good the Bad and the Ugly?

Ohm
  (12:49 PM)

J.Ford... I am ashamed to say this... I have The Good, the Bad and the Ugly on DVD sitting on my entertainment center unopened. I am bad at the classics before the 80s. LOL. Tell me how it is next week, alright?

Brad (Binghamton)

do jets fans have any reason not to hate Brett Favre and boo him from the moment he touches the field? i know he's gonna hear me from the nosebleeds

Ohm
  (12:51 PM)

If I am a Jets fan, I don't boo him. Why? He played hurt every week for the Jets. When he wasn't hurt, he had them at 8-3. I know he left you guys at the end there and went to Minny. But you knew that when you traded for him. And really, it all worked out, you guys got Sanchise. No need to hate on 4...

Frank (Houston)

Ohm, thanks for the Vick over McNabb advice a couple of weeks ago. Vick tore it up. Next question: Z. Miller or V. Shiancoe?

Ohm
  (12:52 PM)

Frank... that is a tough one. You are in very good shape at LB. Miller has great success against SD... I believe that is who they play this week. But Shiancoe could get a lot of work with Moss now on the team as well. I'm leaning toward Miller because he is Oakland's only passing option. But monitor his injury status going up to Sunday.

yusuf (nigeria)

How is pierre paul coming along I think he should take more snaps that kiwanuka is injured and to prevent umenyiora's injury from worsening what do u think

Ohm
  (12:53 PM)

Yusuf... are you really hitting us up from Nigeria? I love your football team man! JPP is going to see more snaps. He is getting better each week. Absolute beast on special teams. And while he did not get in on the sack party last week, he is getting better. You will see him more with Kiwi out. Absolutely.

Robert (FL)

Ohm, do you think Ahmad will play this weekend or not?

Ohm
  (12:53 PM)

Rob... putting me on the spot. Right now, don't look good, but I have to say, I will still be surprised if he doesn't.

Bryan (NY)

Radio interview? You're too pretty for radio Ohm

Ohm
  (12:54 PM)

B... I try homey... I try. Hopefully the ladies like my DJ voice! I always wanted to do a Quiet Storm on the radio!

Dan (NYC)

Ohm, what's going on man? Isn't it enough already with Hedgecock? He was valuable when he was clearing running lanes in the super bowl run but now hes no longer the force he used to be and he is not a threat whatsoever out of the backfield. Put Pascoe there and use the roster spot to get a special teamer from another squads practice squad.

Ohm
  (12:55 PM)

D... don't know about that. They like Madison. He's hurt right now but they will need him. The running game isn't all on him. The offensive line isn't blowing people off the line of scrimmage as much anymore either, you know? But you will see Pascoe at FB this week... I am pretty sure.

jay (queens)

when will the mets win?

Ohm
  (12:55 PM)

Jay... hope and pray that the Wilpons get this right with their next hire.

Kenny Phillips' Knee (With Kenny)

Ohm! What's going on with me man? Will I be alright for Sunday?

Ohm
  (12:56 PM)

Just rest and relax, ice and stem... you will be out there on Sunday.

Brad (Binghamton)

what is gonna be the jets biggest issue with the vikes? stopping AP? stopping moss? protecting sanchez?

Ohm
  (12:56 PM)

B... stopping AP first and foremost. I am sure Rex's defense will be looking for a pick or two from Favre. Look out for Shiancoe.

Eddie (Bridgewater, NJ)

Denard Roboinson 200/300 vs. the Spartans Saturday?

Ohm
  (12:57 PM)

E... we have the best linebacker in the country, Greg Jones. Also very solid run defense. Don't see Denard getting 200 yards. What worries more is his passing and getting those safeties and corners to bite.

Mike (NYC)

What are you hearing about Johnson's status for the game? if he doesn't play, Giants might win, if he doesn't play, I'm not optimistic.

Ohm
  (12:58 PM)

Sounds like Johnson is doing better. I was suprised last week that he didn't play. And would be very surprised this week if he doesn't. We will know more if he practices today.

Martin (Cincinnati)

What is impact of the OL flux on the playcalling? Does Gilbride have packages or plays that he can or can't use because of the injuries that have been sustained? Is this the reason we have seen a lot of consistent performance from the offense?

Ohm
  (12:59 PM)

M... there are some things I am sure he can't do the way he wants to. They have been trying to prepare the line in case Seubert has to play some center, moving Diehl to guard and Andrews in at tackle. With no FB, Pascoe now might play some FB, so what happens to their two tight end set? Does Andrews come in and play at tight end again to block? They have been effective at times with the two tight end set.

Jc (Fort Myers, FL)

Hey Ohm. Loved the ESPN Chicago/NY chat on Sunday. I know the talking heads get paid to have opinions and pick games but can we officially admit that the term NO WAY does not exist in today's NFL. There was NO WAY says the experts the Giants would beat the Bears and NO WAY the Jags would beat the Colts. How about everyone admit WE HAVE NO IDEA makes more sense.

Ohm
  (1:01 PM)

JC... did I say they had no chance of winning that game? I think if you go back to when I picked the game by game schedule when it was released back in the spring, I had Giants at 2-2, losing to Indy and Tenn. Giants are a perfect example of why we can't overreact week to week.

Ryan (NY)

Do you think Mark Dantonio should take some time away from the team for a bit? I admire his passion to get back to coaching, but a heart attack and a blood clot within a week of each other... why stress yourself out more?

Ohm
  (1:02 PM)

I hear you Ryan. Coaching is crazy these days. I think he will be up in the booth from what I last resd. But you are probably right, as much as I want him there. I think the team called him during a timeout to ask him whether it should go for it on fourth and one last week... Crazy! But maybe we can have him show up, fire the team up and then go back and rest at a hospital! LOL.

Steve (PSL, FL)

Do you feel that the Giants believe more in themselves after their last outing? Or is it still like a quiet confidence?

Ohm
  (1:02 PM)

Steve... believe more in themselves... when you have a game like that, it makes you know what you are capable of and now you start listening and working harder...

Bob (TX)

Who could I trade Jay Cutler for?

Ohm
  (1:03 PM)

Bob... fantasy right? Probably not much right now... if you could get Sanchez... well... I think I'd hold onto Cutler. It was just one bad game. Martz will have him throwing all season. But hopefully he's not your starter and you have no better options.

The Duke (The Dirty Jersey)

O-Dawg! Did the Bears really have to put an ad in the paper looking for QBs after the Giants game!

Ohm
  (1:03 PM)

Duke... why you gonna kick dirt on the Bears like dat? LOL.

Everyone (Everywhere)

Ohm, can you turn the auto update on so we don't have to keep refreshing the page?

Ohm
  (1:04 PM)

Sorry... nobody has ever asked me to do that... does that make a difference? I had no idea what that was for... LOL!

Bryan (NY)

You want Angelina to move back in? I want her to move to Utah - I don't like sharing the same time zone as her

Ohm
  (1:05 PM)

B... she's just "misunderstood." LOL. Situation is hilarious though.

matt (ny)

What up Ohm? Have you heard anything more on Bulluck? Theyre gonna need him against Foster this week.

Ohm
  (1:05 PM)

Matty... you are right. But Bulluck didn't practice today... not a good sign.

Eddy (Jersey/Ga)

Can KG call some mid zone pass plays? Hooks, slants, drags? To let the WR make some more YAC, instead of either Deep passes or WR screens? Also maybe add more HB screens?

Ohm
  (1:06 PM)

E... I would love to see more of that... Get Smitty going and let Nicks try to break one. Same for Manningham. I do like when they get Bradshaw out in space and on the edge with pitchouts. They need more short screens.

Brad (Binghamton)

do you think revis will play monday night? why not let him rest for 2 weeks so theres no question he will be good after bye, cromartie kept moss in check right

Ohm
  (1:08 PM)

B... not sure what will happen with Revis Island. But he didn't look right before it happened... so I would say be as careful as possible. But it is Monday Night... Moss... I wouldn't be surprised if he got out there and played.

Jc (Fort Myers, FL)

Not you Ohm just for clarification. Football night in America and ESPN Sunday football pregame show was more my point.

Ohm
  (1:09 PM)

I didn't know what they said... unfortunately in press box, we can't hear the TV telecast. I have a weird feeling about this Sunday... on paper, Texans should win this game. But I can see them winning for some reason. Don't ask me why. LOL.

Jon (NY)

Couple fantasy lineup decisions to make. Floyd, Sims-Walker, or Holmes at WR2 and Moreno, Spiller, or McFadden (if healthy, but sounds he's out) at RB2.

Ohm
  (1:10 PM)

Jon... Floyd normally but he has Raiders and Asomugha right? Sims-Walker way too risky. Keep him benched. I guess I go with Holmes. McFadden sounds out. Check on Moreno's status for Sunday. If he plays... I say go Moreno. Wait and see on Spiller.

Mike Gundy (I'm a man! I'm 40!)

What are your thoughts on Fewell's defense and gameplanning so far?

Ohm
  (1:11 PM)

Mike Gundy! Love Fewell. He keeps it fresh and interesting. If anything, I would say sometimes he needs to adjust a little quicker like against Indy. But I love what he did vs Carolina, Tennessee (they kept Chris Johnson in check until late) and Chicago. Very interested in seeing what he does vs Houston.

Russ (Ann Arbor)

Hail to the victors!

Ohm
  (1:12 PM)

Russ... what? Hail 1,000-plus days ago? I haven't heard that fight song against us in quite a while at end of losses to MSU in football and basketball.

Kenny Phillips' Knee (With Kenny)

Knicks make the playoffs this season?

Ohm
  (1:12 PM)

Possibly eighth seed... but Kenny Phillips' knee... meet Amare's knee... LOL.

Ohm
  (1:13 PM)

Alright guys, got to run for Coughlin later. If you have more fantasy questions, hit me up on Twitter and I will answer in fantasy mailbag on the Giants blog on ESPN-NY by Sunday morning! @NotoriousOHMHave a good weekend guys and GO STATE!
