Feast to Famine

The “experts” will break this down later tonight, but I feel like day 2 of the Giants draft was a huge hit and a huge miss.

A defensive tackle in round 2 was a smart pick. The fact that his closest comparison is Hankins, makes it even better. No matter what you think, the Giants took a guy who could fill the last spot in their defensive starting lineup.

A QB in round 3 was incredibly stupid. Davis Webb may turn into Eli Manning, but that isn’t the point. This draft should have been about maximizing Eli Manning’s chances to win another Super Bowl. Webb doesn’t do that and you have to wonder if he will ever develop into a pro QB.

But again, even if he turns into Eli, this represents the worst way to maximize Eli’s last years. Nothing short of another Super Bowl win excuses this pick.

    that is Patriot way of thinking…Superbowl win or failure. I like it.

      It’s strange to me how few teams seem to embrace that thinking. It’s sports, the point is to win! Maybe it is all the participation trophies, but so many teams seem content to just be playing the games.

    what is odd is the Giants have winning in their history. They should strive for it again more than other teams. I’d get it for the Clevelands, the Jets, the Jacksonvilles and others that have a ways to go before they would be confused with perennial winners.
