Hey guys, thanks for joining. Anyone catch Hines Ward on Dancing With the Stars last night? I saw the highlights. Looks like homeboy did alright. LOL.
I'll be the first to tell you I love Mathias and everything he brought to this team, but I think its time to move one. Is it too much to think Pierre-Paul could step in and do exactly what Kiwi was doing for the first three games last year?
John, well, I disagree a bit. I do not think it's time to move on with Kiwanuka. Prior to his neck injury, he led the team in sacks with four in three games and he was a major piece in Perry Fewell's defense, moving back and forth between DE and LB. I would love to see what Fewell can do with a healthy Kiwanuka. I love JPP but I think JPP is still a year or two away from being a full-time player. I like how the Giants can bring him along slowly. The key is if Kiwi can stay healthy. That's not to say that JPP can't get four sacks in three games but I don't think it would be smart to overload JPP by having him try to play both positions. Kiwi can help the linebacking corps by just returning.
Ohm, Are you trained in the arts of the samurai sword?
B, think more Muay Thai. LOL.
I told you Sparty sucked.
Pete, if our down year is making a 14th straight NCAA tournament, I'll take it. Your best year is making the tournament and celebrating it like you've never been there. Come back to me when you guys make a Final Four, heck, even a Sweet 16. We're still the only basketball program in the state of Michigan and as of now, we are the best football program as well. Signed, Big Ten football champs.
Ohm I've been looking forward to 2:00 all day - let's get this chat going!!!
Snooks, what you been up to? I've missed the last few shows. Fill me in!
If carimi, costanzo, tyron smith and pouncey are all available when the giants select at 19, who are they taking?
John, it's tough because I will never completely discount the Giants from taking a defensive lineman as well since you know Jerry Reese. But let's assume they want to go OL and those four are there... I still am of the opinion that tackle may be the best value at 19. Pouncey could be good but some draft prognosticators have Smith going higher. Costanzo is expected to be very good as well. And Reese has often talked about how hard it is to find quality tackles. But also keep in mind, the Giants have tackles... Will Beatty, David Diehl, Shawn Andrews (if they bring him back) and Kareem McKenzie. But getting another young tackle for the future isn't a bad idea.
G'afternoon Ohmdog! You want us to vote for Nicks as the next Madden cover boy?!! Step away from the salvia pipe! R U NutZ!!He's been injured enough, no thank you! Go Arakpo! But Tebuckle will win, he's the popular football player in the country.
Haha Bill... I didn't say anything about telling people to vote for Nicks. I said you can vote him on the cover... and I point out if you believe in the Madden curse, then don't do it. I even put a link to the Madden curse history, that is, if you believe in those things.
Ohm, Is it true you created the five finger death punch from kill bill?
B, that is one of my favorite moves from a kung-fu movie. You know what? I actually need to start watching some movies again. Any good ones out lately?
Ohm, What do you think will happen with the labor situation after the April 6? court appearance? Judge rules for players, thus ending lockout? Or owners get to keep the lockout in place?
Bill, tough to predict. I am not completely sure about all the legal dynamics but I am of the opinion that there will be some sort of appeal process, no? I think the hope by the players is that the league year will resume after the ruling and free agency begins. But I am not completely sure if this is possible but wouldn't the owners appeal if that happens? I have a feeling this legal process is going to go long.
This rule change moving the kickoff to the 35 helps the giants coverage teams, but how much really?
Well, it helps that the expectation is most kickoffs will end up as touch backs. And no return is a good thing for the Giants coverage team if it plays like it did last year. LOL.
Although the kickoff coverage team was better than the punt return coverage team, slightly better.
Alright thanks guys for stopping by! See you next week!
