“I think you take it one year at a time,” Mara said. “I’m not looking past ’19 at this point.”
“I would like to come out of this draft with a quarterback, but here’s the thing: Show me what the grades are. What’s the value?” Mara said. “If the top quarterbacks are graded towards the bottom of the first round or even the second round, I’m not going to insist that we take one at No. 6 or even No. 17. Show me what the value is. That’s always been our philosophy on that.
“The worst thing you can do is try to force the issue and then you end up with a quarterback that isn’t worth taking at the particular spot. Would we love to have a quarterback coming out of this draft? Yes, but only if we have a conviction about him. And we’re not there yet. We’re a long ways from making that determination.” (SNY)
“The worst thing you can do is try to force the issue and then you end up with a quarterback that isn’t worth taking at the particular spot”. I’m going to have to disagree with you, John.
No, the worst thing you can do is continually throw out Eli Manning who is absolutely one of the worst quarterbacks in the NFL while refusing to even sign a competent backup for him.
Why couldn’t the Giants go out and get Ryan Tannehill or Case Keenum? Who is Eli’s backup? Alex Tanney? Kay. John Mara is probably working on an extension with Eli’s agent as I write this.
The worst thing you can do is trade the most talented offensive player in franchise history to the Cleveland Browns for the No. 17 overall pick and Jabril fucking Peppers.
WHAT ARE WE DOING HERE?
You draft Dwayne Haskins No. 6.
The Giants should probably trade up for Haskins but they are intentionally waiting at 6 hoping that Kyler Murray and Haskins get selected early that way they can draft whatever random defensive lineman they actually want and then talk to the fans like we’re idiots with a ‘damn, we really wanted a quarterback but they were all off the board. Shoot.
Eli Manning is going to outlive us all.
Death. Taxes. Eli Manning being afraid of a pass rush and dropping to the ground when no one’s around him.
