That first statement is very true; but, it does help with team chemistry - knowing the tendencies of your teammates and curbing your game to make the unit better is a very important aspect of developing a unit...

Than is also very true.... Chemistry amongst the 11 on the field is huge.... That being said we have flip flopped and dealt with so many recent injuries nearly everyone on the defense is still learning the chemistry. Adding one more veteran that can impact the defense is hardly going to make that more challenging unless we pick up the wrong person.

The waiting one more season could also have us with no Graham next year.... Who knows who else we could lose for any reason. We have to take each year and try to make IT better and worry about next year after.

Re: Interesting RUMOR: Giants-Saints in Ingram trade talks - RUMOR

actually if a trade was to happen were it helps the cap and get a solid value in return it would be this one

BUT that leaves us gambling big time with a young depth chart.

Re: Interesting RUMOR: Giants-Saints in Ingram trade talks - RUMOR

Has anybody in the 14 pages so far speculated that maybe the rumor is coming from the Giants side, that after what happened to Andre Brown the other night, they picked up the phone and called a bunch of people, including the Saints, and the Saints really have nothing to do with it except they answered the phone and are considering the offer to talk about it?

That seems really plausible to me. Somebody calling up and making a pitch for "hey, let's talk about Mark Ingram" doesn't necessarily mean he's on the auction block, or doesn't mean they are really in heavy duty talks on this. It could just be the Giants picking up the phone and feeling around to try and solve their problem. And it fits the guy's tweets, the vagueness and the lack of confirmable facts about the situation.

Ingram isn't going anywhere. And I'm glad. I think he's going to be good this year.

Re: Interesting RUMOR: Giants-Saints in Ingram trade talks - RUMOR

Just because he was right about Tebow doesn't mean he had any kind of inside info. A ton of people were saying he was probably going to get cut. Parroting others is not "inside" information, and besides which if this guy was legit he wouldn't have such an axe to grind.

No one has assumed it came from the Saints side. Both teams have a side and both leak what they want to. Coming from the Giants doesn't make it any less of a rumor.

There have been details about offers listed.... That's a little more substantial than "hello".


Part of the reason I think "something" is going on is because we have released ZERO about keepers or cuts with 3 hours to go. Nada, nothing, zip, zilch...

And just because a deal didn't go through that was in the works doesn't mean it was never in the works. A lot of deals that two parties go back and forth on never come to fruition.

Remember.... The guy didn't say Ingram was being traded, he said it was in the works... He also didn't say Tebow was being traded, he said he was being cut.

Read the op again.. "Being discussed 50/50 chance"
