Is anyone else happy that we are signing players that you have at least heard of? I got so tired of asking myself "Who?" everytime we signed someone.


My guess is no one had ever heard of Victor Cruz before the Giants signed him. Let's just trust Gettleman to shore up this team. He did not earn as rep as a grinder for nothing....and that is just what we need. The Panthers did not have the cap space to go on a big spending spree. What did you expect????

Gettleman has signed about 6 names I know and we started over the cap, Hurney never signed anyone even when we had money.

Isn't it great to actually sign someone who had a breakout year the previous year instead of always saying "who the fug is this scrub" for just about every signing under Hurney?

solid signing, really liking the way our offseason is shaping up. the draft is, and always will be, the most critical stage though

The fact that you don't follow the sport as closely as ohers does not say anything the usefulness of our signings.

My life Revolves around Football and I spend my day on a football forum = not following the sport very close.

We all know who Chase Blackburn is, but who the fug knew such names as legedu naanee.

God don't you hate those overachievers

No, I wasn't saying he is useless. He's a solid role player.

My point was, if they're bringing him in to play a significant role, or possibly start at some point, that overachieving can quickly turn the other way. Remember Lester Towns? How awesome was he here? What happened when he left?

As a depth signing, awesome. He's a hustle guy who has shown the tendency to make big plays... That's great if that is the capacity we'll be using him in.

And, in general, I'm VERY happy with what Gettleman has done in terms of FAs considering the position we were in. I still wish Gross would've restructured early so we could've signed at least one top-tier FA early on for a reasonable price (CB, DT, WR).

People who watch and follow the NFL did. They always mentioned him on Sportcenter for the simple fact of his name.

I remember Blackburn from when the Panthers played the Giants in the playoffs in '05. Their starting linebackers were so decimated by injury that they were forced to start Blackburn who was like their 6th string LB or something crazy like that. Turns out he was quite a find for them and now he plays for the Panthers.

He is just a simple example, I didn't mean it in the sense I didn't know their name but they were no names.

Don't know how anyone couldn't like this signing sure he isn't very fast but he makes plays and for a back up that is a great signing after he just came off a career year. Feels nice to actually have a gm that can negotiate.

Anyone else starting to get the feeling that Gettleman should have been promoted to the GM position somewhere years ago, and the cards finally fell right for us? Not saying I'm sure of it....just a feeling.
