Matt Mosley’s Giant Related Questions:

Matt Mosley of ESPN.COM chatted NFC East today.  Here are the Giants related questions.

I’ve heard a lot about Dillard and Linval Joseph. What are your thoughts?

Igbey down under: Heard that both of them had nice showings in minicamp. I don’t make much of DL until the pads go on. You can’t tell much about those guys at all in the shorts and shells. But from the folks I’ve talked to, Dillard was everywhere. And he was already a really vocal guy in his first camp. I’m told Coughlin was quite impressed. I’ll try to get Dillard on the phone this week.

Matt, do you think the Giants have to be worried about the JPP pick already, after the early reports from mini camp? I wasn’t as down on the pick as a lot of Giants fans were, but it would be bad for a team with a lot of good pieces but a few big holes to come away from the 15th pick with a player that won’t contribute much in his first year.

I don’t put much stock in a three-day minicamp. So the guy had some back issues and some trouble with his conditioning. you should’ve seen what Dez Bryant was going through at Valley Ranch. Could barely stand up straight. So it’s way too early to overreact. I’ll do that on your behalf during training camp.

What kind of bounce back can we expect from the G’s? Do you think they’ll take the division or get the WC? Remember, Dallas may have some o-line, WR, and Safety issues, Eagles have a new QB, and the ‘Skins need another year to become a contender.

Andrew, I remember all of those things. I’d never count the Giants out. I have them second behind the Cowboys at this point.

Do you see the return of Jay Alford from injury as a key component to shoring up the porous Giants interior defense?

Good player, Newt. yes, I think that would go a long way in helping the Giants.

Jason Pierre-Paul told The Star Ledger that he has a back condition that bothers him regularly. The Giants claim to have never been told this. What is the story, How could the Giants not have known this and what affect will this have on his contract????.

You can expect for this kid to stop talking about this “condition” immediately.

will clint stintum be this years manningham for the g-men ? how bout the progress of barden?

Barden’s getting there. Sintim will start. Barden just has to prove that he can play special teams. Has to start bringing it in that area.

matt do what kind of impact do you think rolle will have in the giants secondary? is he a leader ? and one more, what do you hear on the health of phillips.

Rolle’s a good player. he’ll be a huge upgrade back there. I’ve heard that phillips will be ready to roll. I wouldn’t stress out about him.

can andre brown come back and be a productive running back after tearing his achillies and do you hear anything in regards to his health?

I can’t think of a RB who’s successfully returned from that specific injury. Not a lot of them out there.

hey matt love your work. do you think pierre paul is kearse like, or work out warrior ? and what do you expect from him this year and the future?

I think he’s a project player, which is something Giants fans hate to hear. Won’t be a huge impact guy in 2010.

So if you’ve got Sintim as a starter on one side, A)presuming Boley still starting on the other, who do you have in the middle, andB) Do you think Sintim will be effective? On a related note, do you think a healthier DL will help the linebacking corps in general?

Dillard starts in the middle, Sintim and Boley will be out there with him.

Is William Beatty set to start for the Giants this year?

That is not a done deal.

Matt- If Coughlin goes 8-8 again this year, is he done in New York?

Yes, probably so.

Can Steve Smith be the #1 receiver in the NFC this season?

In terms of catches, sure. But Larry Fitz is still the BEST.

Do you think Aaron Ross will finally have a full season at CB?

he’s like Terence Newman. Sort of tightly-wound guy the way he’s built. I’m not into predicting health. But I know he’s done everything he can to try to prevent the hamstring issues.

MM…how goes it? You need to comment on your own blogs from time to time so we know you are paying attention LMAO. Anyways…JPP is in a unique situation in that since he hasnt played long with his hands on the ground, Fewell can move him and play him @ SAM or DE. JPP can put on 20 more pounds to his frame and play DT if necessary. Where do you see him being a disruptive force if he actually plays?

Right there at defensive end.

    • Mark Picucci says:

      Sweet! I have had a few of my questions answered before as well. I saw that you are from Australia. My grandmother is from Aussie as well.

      • Jeremy says:

        I’m a New Yorker all the way. Mosley was reaching for straws and came up empty. Igbey is my handle so I used it in the question when they asked me my name. I guess he thought he’d be clever and mention something about Australia, He failed miserably.
