My opinion; before the Giants drafted Ramses Barden he was a participant in a receiver competition put on by some sports network at that time.
At one point Barden ran a deep pattern over the middle like Plax use to do, however the ball was thrown way to wide and Barden had to catch the ball across his body backhanded like a baseball centerfielder. It was an amazing catch and a testament to his skills. Last year Barden had what many people called his breakout-game against the Carolina Panthers where he caught nine passes from Eli. Then like the four seasons before, he was not seen of or heard from again!
I have always wondered why the Giants never used him on a slant pass in the red zone because he would be almost impossible to stop.
So last night in the BCS Championship game on the last play the pass I was hoping
Ramses Barded would have run, won the game for Florida State. If that play is run by a tall receiver who boxes-out a small defensive back it should be impossible to defend! And it was.
Book it Dano!
Giants should hire Ben McAdoo of the Packers as OC…just do something and someone different, please!
