Love this philosophy and I'm excited to see the moves Gettleman makes post draft. I don't think he's done making moves yet.

If you're one of those people who believes games are won and lost in the tranches and you build the foundations (OL / DL ) to win, then you should be pretty happy.

If you're a skill position guy, then not so much.


So your basically asking who knows football and who does not.

I think the nice thing is there is a transparent philosophy.

Gettleman is going all in on his Hog-Molly and he is honest about it. I'm buying in.

Unless we start losing again then I will bitch.

See I'm transparent too.

All those leads that we lost in the 4th qtr last year should soon go away with the DLine having competent fresh legs. This alone should be worth 3-4 wins

I completely agree. But at the same time our opponents are going to be feeling even more heat than Cam lol.

Gettleman did patch together a really strong oline for the Giants out of vets playing for peanuts. We aren't done in FA - somebody that can contribute will come to this team.

Ill post this quote from Gettleman again:

@Panthers: Gettleman: "Our next goal is to have a 90-man roster where every guy deserves to be in a training camp. We may not get to that until July."

Good. I'm a firm believer that competition brings out the best in humans. Sick of the guys on our team who coast through the motions for a paycheck.

I'd be ok with it if they could consistently get the bullshit calls old man tony G gets, but they dont.

I wouldn't frame it that way.

People have different ideas about team building, and certainly there's more than one way to bring together a successful squad.

But what I would say is that people like me who believe in building from the lines out, there's more reason to be optimistic right now.

What about big men and guys that can score touchdowns was hard to understand?
