Jon Beason "I Want To Retire A Giant"

67 posts in this topic

"This is where I want to be," Beason said. "Next year will be eight years for me and they say you are getting up there in age. I want to retire a Giant."

 

Beason is in Beast mode in NY. Leading the team in tackles past 2 weeks and has gained the attention and respect of his coaches and team mates

 

Happy for the guy, but at the same time I always envisioned him retiring a Panther, even if he did go play for another team.

I think he wants to finish his career there and not be a scrub jumping team to team

He's saying the right words regardless of what us fans think. He can never come back here and play MLB so he knows that his best chance to be one long term is with NYG. I hope he gets that chance to finish his career in New York.

I remember when he held out when we drafted him.  I always got the notion that he wasn't wedded to the Panthers despite what he said over the years.  We stuck with him for years of non-production and paid him tens of millions for nothing. And this is what we get???

From lurking on the Giants forum, many NY fans legitimately believe that Beason is gone after this season and won't be re-signed. It's like the opposite of the Hurney effect.

 

Why? I have no idea, he's the best LB on their team and one of few defensive leaders. I think he's sort of addressing this by letting everyone know he's not just looking to play and get a deal somewhere else.

 

We think Panther fans have it bad.

he'd say that about any team he got traded to, given his situation. that's what you're supposed to say.

What's he supposed to say?  "Glad to be getting a paycheck right now and getting back playing the position I love, but I'm looking forward to testing the waters come March."

    • Same people defending Hillary a few months ago are now drawing the conclusion that Flynn... and by association Trump... must be guilty of something because Flynn is getting immunity from the FBI. Works both ways. For the record... IMHO both Hillary and Trump are crooks.  If justice in this nation were truly blind these two politicians and their henchmen would be doing a long stretch in prison by now.
    • Slot receivers don't exist in 2 TE sets unless we're lining a TE on the outside which I haven't seen much out of the currently constructed Panthers. Maybe McCaffrey if he were to be split out wide but the Panthers usually keep a RB with Cam in-case Cam needs the extra protection and audibles the RB to block.  The Panthers would be best suited pairing KB with a speedster such as Charles Johnson, who's adept at running deep routes. Keep Howard and possible the RB (if not blocking) on short routes, KB on working the intermediate routes, Olsen running intermediate/deep routes, and Johnson running deep routes. That way Cam has a receiver on every level. All of this assumes Shula constructs a properly worked passing attack. 
    • Yes, that is correct. My point being Clinton was impeached and stayed in office. Almost everyone calling for impeachment of Trump thinks it means to remove him from office. He would have to be impeached and then found guilty to do that. The impeachment alone does not remove him. And my original point, no one was bringing up the electoral college back then. It makes no sense. Because the popular would surely rid us of corrupt politicians, right?
