if Price isn't complaining, why is this still an issue?
Pettiti didn't get an inordinate amount of help, he was one-on-one with Kearse more times than he got help
Why would the Giants cheat up on the LOS? Thompson and Thomas haven't proven to be big-time running threats and the Giants have bigger reasons to be concerned with our passing game, particularly with a suspect starting corner and rookie nickel corner playing.
The only way the Giants are going to cheat up on the LOS is if Thompson or Thomas show New York can't stop them with six to seven defenders.
It's not an issue summerisfunner. It's a debate and/or simple exchange of opinions.
I guess you'd like it if we just left this one alone.
and like numerous others have pointed out, keep it in one Price thread
I agree Gimmiesix. This is why I expect a good game from TT and our run blocking.
Are you a mod SIF? If not, don't get too worked up about how the threads are managed. The mods are doing a fine enough job as it is and if they needed a cub scout to help them out with thread management they surely have plenty of other more worthy people to ask before you.
Good try anyway big guy.
*** Peerless should still see the field a few times a game during the second half of the season and that's with a healthy TG.
hey, it's a public forum, meaning, I can say whatever I want and you can't do a thing about it, how you like that little guy?
There's got to be something wrong with Peerless health wise (perhaps his documented eye problem) that he's not on the field.
But I will be honest, I'm still amazed that Glenn is doing so well...I did not expect this. I figured that Keyshawn would be the leading receiver (in terms of yardage) and crayton would emerge as the #2 guy. Peerless needs to get involved though and add yet another dynamic to this offense. I can't imagine they will keep him on the bench all season given the money they paid him.
Oh yeah??? So can I!!
I don't get it BTWFTTD. People around here think to get PP in the game for a few plays is going to hurt our production. The funny thing is that TG has not played a full year in quite a while, you would think that we would like a talent like PP to get some live action so in the case that TG goes down (which is not a stretch) he has regained any chemistry that he may have had with Drew in the past.
Also, we have 3 possession receivers and only one deep threat. Why not take KJ out for a play here or there? Why not take Crayton out for a play or two through out the game? When TG goes out for a play or two, why not bring in PP?
The only reason is that he PP is not up to par with what we have on the field now and the production drop off would be hurtful to the teams overall offensive output.
There is no mystery here whatsoever..and there is no health issue with Price.
The simple fact is Bill currently considers Copper's specials contributions to be more important that another speedster on the field for a handful of plays. Price dresses, someone else doesn't.
That could change tomorrow, but until a HC can dress his entire 53, tough decisions have to be made every week.
Expect a thread asking the same question next week and the week after...
I'd like to see him play as well. More out of curiosity than any difference I think he could make..we aren't becoming a steady four receiver set O in any case. I'm also at least 50-50 on whether the "can't separate" anymore tag that haunted him in Atlanta was true. Not every flaw can be held on Mike Vick.
And I'd like to see what he's currently got so we'd have a better feeling for what we need in receivers for next year's draft.
BUT we just can't subtract a more major contributor from one unit to play one who could spell a Terry, but is not as smart or as quick or as sure-handed, could spell a Key, but is not a blocker or an over the middle specialist , or could spell a well-rounded developing receiver who also returns punts in Patrick.
I think because Price plays a glamorous position, fantasy football and Madden expectations combine with desire to see the O as diversified as possible. But so long as max protect, and blocking are as critical to our offense, I really don't think Bill is going to be in rush to sit a Ratliff, Copper, or Fowler for Price.
Why? Because WE are curious about his speed?
Price could open Bill's eyes by tearing things up in practice, but something tells me he has not done that. He is probably currently a talent that falls between his good year in Buffalo and his bad ones in Atlanta...but anyone who thinks he's Terry Glenn is mistaken. If Terry does get hurt, knock on wood he doesn't, there is still going to be a falloff. I really think Patrick will pick up more of the slack than Price, if that happens.
I disagree. No receiver in Atlanta has ever eclipsed 850 receiving yards in a season since Vick came to town. Not even Alge Crumpler. The only receivers to break the 800 yd receiving mark with Vick are Finneran and Price. You have to be talented to get 800+ receiving yards in a run oriented offense with an obvious handicap to your passing game like Michael Vick.
This has nothing to do with Fantasy Football or Madden. I think most people just want to see what Price can do (myself included), after literally having his career "put on ice" since 2003.
The answer is simple. We didn't want Price to be a Eagle and he is insurance until/when Glenn gets hurt.
Strategic move thats why they paid him so much.
Nah. lets not activate him. Why don't we just go and activate Marion "fumbles the third" Barber if Jones is inactive. We could have a few turnovers so the Giants have a chance....
I don't understand it either, the guy has been active in what one game?(washington) and had 1 catch. It makes no sense that a threat like this is not getting playing time. Could you imagine this offense with BOTH glenn and PP running deep routes? This guy was a playmaker in buffalo, especially during his only season with Drew back in 02.
I guess I don't understand the rationale that he can't be dressed unless somebody else sits? SO SIT SOMEBODY AND GET HIM IN THE LINEUP!
I don't buy it, I mean why would you sign a guy just so another team don't? I never heard he was interested in philly to begin with. I thought New England was the only other aggressive suitor? But he turned them down to be reunited with Bledsoe.
As for Glenn getting hurt, I hope that don't happen given his numbers as of today! I just don't understand what parcells is thinking. He is too old school, he must think he needs to dress 10 linebackers, just sit somebody down and find a way to get PP in the lineup!
