I had been thinking the same thoughts about him being a boss evaluator. He picked Amukamara and Austin who blow. His entire 2011 draft is basically useless. So he's getting praise for signing 1 UDFA and picking Nicks and JPP in the first round. Hello JPP is a freak, not that hard to evaluate a freak. Honestly his drafts look worse than Hurney drafts. I guess if we need a WR he will pick a baller.

Chad Jones got horribly injured in a Car Crash and was never the same, can't fault Ross for that

JPP was ridiculously raw coming out of school.

Hurney was a good GM for the most part. His downfall was the free agent aspect of the job. A lot of Marc Ross is just hype. I'm sure there are several candidates that can do just as good as a job for us than Ross

Solid work bro.

I thought he had everything to do with that front 7... But now I won't be upset at all after seeing that.

In fact, get Hurney back in here to fix this pile of poo he has us in with the cap

BTW you negged the OP, pretty sure that was in error.

He didn't pick anyone, without some inside knowledge you really do not know who he wanted in these past drafts.

curious to see a list of gettleman acquisitions. he spent years doing college scouting before moving to pro personnel and he's worked with a lot of successful teams.

I'd say his downfall was handicapping the franchise by investing in an uber Foxball roster and hiring a non Foxball coaching staff coupled with a dynamic QB

He has been part of 13 playoff teams, 6 Superbowl teams and 3 Superbowl winners in 25 years.

Just to add a little info, over 17 years the Panthers have seen 4 playoff teams and 1 Superbowl appearance.

That's the giants drafting history, not marc ross drafting history. The conclusions some of you are trying to draw from that data are astounding.

Not sure what you're trying to prove, but it failed. The Giants' draft looks, position wise, looks just like what we need. Solidify the line, and then draft S/CB/WR/DL early and often.

Compare how many times Hurney took a LB/RB early to how many times the Giants did.

Then compare our cap situation and theirs.

Then compare how many superbowls they have.


Being a GM isn't just drafting. You have to have a fuging vision and plan for eventual departures. Not just hand out giant (pun not intended) contracts to redundant players.

NYG has been good but its not anything eye popping. The only big one that everyone is hyping Marc Ross out to be is the JPP pick. Other than that, his draft is like every other team's draft. People just want someone from a big market and thats why Ross is getting a lot of attention on here.

Seattle have been killing the draft recently all over the place. If we were just looking at draft history, why Ross? Why not Seattle John Idzik or Fitterer? Just making a point.

1. Prince Amukamara is not a bust. He's been injured a lot but he's been there best corner this year, though Webster has been terrible for the most part.

2. Other than seeing the type of players the Giants draft early, this gives no indication as to whether the majority picks have to do with Ross or not.

keep in mind, the giants draft positions are always way way farther back then ours. And i would say alot of those picks are very good considering the draft position the giants are always in
