The Emerging Hakeem Nicks

Back in April, GiantsGab was all draft, all the time. And the big debate we were having was: “Hakeem Nicks or Kenny Britt?” Both Jesse Bartolis and myself ended up preferring Britt, however I think it’s safe to say we were both pleased when the G-Men selected Nicks.

How Big Are Hakeem Nicks Hands?

I’m fascinated by everything Hakeem Nicks. Sorry to you all if you’re not. We’ve all seen the story of how Hakeem Nicks wears 4XL gloves, but I wanted to put into perspective how big his hands are (which is a big reason for all catching ability, I imagine).   I’ve seen that Hakeem Nicks’ hands […]

Value, Value, Value

Darrius Heyward Bey? Yikes!

It’s now being repoted by Ralph Vacchiano first, and now ESPN too that the Giants are not only targeting Darrius Heyward Bey, but that they are planning on moving up for him. To which I say… HUH? I don’t get it. We dont’ want to give up our first and a third for Braylon Edwards, […]
