Am I the only one that is starting to miss Marty Hurney?

That's all I need to read from that post to know it sucks. Really? Marty? I suppose you are waiting on Gettleman to sign Hardy to a 6 year $78m deal and Munnerlyn to a 4 year $32m deal, then go into the Draft and get our next stud quarterback converted receiver. GTFO.

That crusty band-aid that Hurney kept slowly tugging at that was holding this roster together, Gettleman is about to grip it and rip it.  The initial pain will be intense but will fade quickly.  There will be much pissing and moaning about it until the big picture begins to come into focus.  This is the beginning of a rebirth for this franchise.  I am all too ready for it.

i really hope so. this team is too loose and too happy when game time comes. they need to be hungry and pissed. they've gotten complacent and comfortable, even when losing. they accept it as just something that happens and just shrug it off. they'd become good losers and that's the culture. i really hope gettleman is changing that culture and i think this may be part of it. if you aren't helping the team perform, you are likely going to be leaving the team. it doesn't matter how much you are liked, how great you are in practice, or how hard you try. results are all that matter. i think maybe hurney was too optimistic about his players and was too much of a buddy. i dont want them to see gettleman as an enemy, but i do want them always looking over their shoulder and never comfortable with where they are or how they're doing.

He isn't good. Legatron caught TD before too. He is hurting our return game and hasn't done diddly poo here....less than AE since camp.

He is here bc he is a DG guy. Simple

No one is saying he's good but just explaining why he is being kept over Edwards. He's had a pair of decent seasons in NYG as a third or fourth option which is more then can be said for Armanti.

Am I the only one that is starting to miss Marty Hurney? For the first time in about 5 years, I believe that we have a team that can win but coaching is holding us back. Mark my word, Gettleman is wanting to see if Cam can be a pocket passer, which we all know he is not. Cam will be gone in 2 years b/c Gettleman feels that you must have a pocket passer to win in this league, he has said it before. Richardson should have hired a guy that wants to put a o-line and weapons around him. I really just don't buy what Gettleman is selling right now!!!!



I think that Cam can become a good pocket passer.  But if he can't, then we should prepare to draft another qb, because while running ability helps, passing from the pocket is still what creates consistent winners.

Did someone say Manziel in this thread as if he would be an elite NFL player?

I wish I could ban.

yeah we've all seen it.  there are people on this board who think that cam relies on his athleticism too much to make plays and has a poor attitude and bad mechanics but want johnny football with our first.

I don't know how else to interpret the move to release Edwards at this point, when he is not contributing nor adding to the detriment of the team.  He was kept but has not produced.  Typically, the last receiver on the depth chart produces very little during the games, if they are even active.


If it was to send a message to the so called "safe" guys, or so they think, that it's time to get serious, then I would like to thank Armanti now for being the sacrificial lamb that could get everyone else's attention.  From an extremely optimistic point of view, we really are at the critical point and the season is not lost.  But it's as close as it can be.

Good try, Zod, at making the AE cutting seem more than it is.  Everyone is shaking in their sneakers, especially the three---err, three and a half---err, four WRs that we have.

I think AE got cut because Gettleman thinks Hixon should be in the game as a #4 and not AE. I assume Gettleman has no say in depth-chart or play-time. When he saw AE and not Hixon getting in the game on Sunday, he decided to make the change. I think everyone new that this was going to be AE's last year here anyway - your backups need to either be proven vets or high-upside guys. Armanti was neither.


Edit: Hixon isn't a great example of either but is both more-proven and has higher upside.
