Thoughts And Musings

Well, it’s a Packers-Steelers Super Bowl, which should be a tremendous game. Have an idea of who I’ll pick, but we have two weeks. Let’s get some T and M

-The next line of elite QBs will be in the Super Bowl. Rodgers. Big Ben. They’re the next Brady and Peyton.

-Sadly for Giants fans, they could of had Big Ben, while keeping draft picks. But that’s in the past. I’m very happy with Eli.

-But for Ben, 2 rings, going for a third. Off the field issues aside, he’s a great QB.

-And Aaron Rodgers. He’s great. In the air, with his feet. So, so dangerous.

-Dom Capers, defensive coordinator for the Pack, interviewed with the Giants before they hired Bill Sheridan.

-Interesting that two 3-4 defenses are in the Super Bowl. I’m a fan of the 3-4, much more so than the 4-3 (although to be honest, I would love to run a 46, but unless you have great players at every position, hard to do).

-On to Giants. Keep an eye out for prospect profiles.

-Speaking of prospects, while I prefer the best player available strategy, I think the Giants need to go defense, particularly linebacker or secondary. If they can get an elite strong side backer, that would be huge.

-The ideal guy? Someone who can cover tight ends. Fast, athletic. Make plays in the secondary.

-Need a corner, an offensive lineman, and maybe a running back too.

-Wouldn’t mind Mark Ingram, actually. Think he has big time talent

-Also, a return guy would be nice. Very nice, actually.

-It’s amazing to think how close the Giants really are. Get the right players, make the right adjustments, they could be right where the Packers are.

-I think the Packers are happy they dumped #4 to go with #12, don’t you think?

-Sorry for the shortened Thoughts and Musings. Just not that much going on. Will change soon.

  1. I’ll argue this until I’m blue in the face, but just because Big Ben has done well with the Steelers doesn’t mean that he would have done well with the NY Giants.

    They are two completetly different animals.

    AND I’d also argue that if Eli Manning got to play with a defense as dominating as the Steelers defense has been it could be Eli Going to the Superbowl for the third time.

    Since 2004 the Steelers have been in the top five for defense Every year, but two, in those two years that they weren’t the Steelers didn’t even make the playoffs.

    Big Ben might be better than Eli, but that doesn’t mean that here with the Giants with pretty average defenses (look it up I don’t think they’ve been top 5 on defense yet, maybe )that he could win two superbowls or even get to one.

    I mean for instance the Steelers were 3-1 without him this year so the defense is the Biggest reason, in my humble opinoin, why they are going back to the Superbowl again.

    I don’t think the Giants regret passing on Rothlesberger, as they assign a higher priority to character issues than most teams. My wish is they address their OL needs via free agency (Robert Gallery, for example, is a FA) and use their pick on skill positions.

    Who would you rather have on the Giants Champ Bailey or Nnamdi Asomugha? I prefer Champ. He could be used in a way Sam Madison was back in ’06, ’07.

    • Jason C. says:

      Both will cost you, but Champ will be noticeably cheaper due to his age. I also think I’d prefer Bailey, he’s had more big game experience, and that’s what the Giants needs to start gearing themselves for.
      About Ben, if he was in NY his head would explode. Look at the way he acts around homely midwest sorority girls, imagine if he was surrounded with New York women??
      As much as people want to put up these dream scenarios with who the Giants should have gotten at QB, I believe wholeheartedly that while maybe others could be more consistent overall, there’s no chance anyone other than Eli would have brought us that Super Bowl championship.
      Either way by week 2 next year, we’ll hear how Tony Romo is the best QB in the NFC East, how Rodgers is the next coming of Jesus, how Cutler is a “true franchise quarterback”, how Ryan is unflappable, how Vick is changing the way the game is played, how Roethlisberger comes through in the clutch, how Flacco’s arm was modeled after a rocket launcher, how Rivers is the clear pick for MVP, how Sanchez runs New York, and how Eli is overrated.
      But, unless Ben or Aaron win the award Sunday, only one of those guys is a Super Bowl MVP, the overrated Eli Manning.
      It gets old when people say things like, take away that one year from Eli’s resume, well take away the 68/69 season from Joe Namath, does anyone even remember his name?
      Hypotheticals in sports are pointless, what’s done is done, Eli is one of only 4 active QB’s to claim the title of Super Bowl MVP (Peyton, Brady, and Brees the others), and any argument including him will begin and end with that statement as it should, because he earned it.
