Listen: Giants, Sam Darnold, Saquon Barkley discussed on The Sports Reporters
"Well, they lost a few guys, but every team loses, oh yes. You know, most of the guys they lost Trey Burton. They got they drafted a tight end in lost Vinny curry. They traded for Bennett. They lost that cornerback. What was his name? Robinson. He was good. I don't know that they replaced him, but every say that about every team, they're not going to surprise anybody there. You tell me because you got you. You live in New York. I mean, is there any threat to them in their own division or the Cowboys? Good enough to give them a hard time force them into play in from wildcard slot. I don't know. You know, last year they certainly weren't about those New York football giants. Some intrigue there is they're not. Yes, there is. And most of involve quarterback Anna new coach and one. Whether saquon Barkley can be the transformative player that made them pass up Sam darnold and the other quarterbacks in the draft. And I've been pretty steadfast, Dave Gettleman the giants general manager is a smart football lifer. He loved this kid and he went for it. Okay. And he considered saquon Barkley the surest thing in the draft even though he is running back. But Mitch, Bob, you've heard me say this and I will continue to set if Sam darnold turns out to be a franchise quarterback for the team that plays in the Giants Stadium that whatever saquon Barkley does. The giants were wrong, not to take Sam darnold. Okay. If he doesn't that they were right, but even if Barclay in the short run or or maybe the over the long haul becomes a great player, but Sam darnold becomes eight star NFL quarterback considering the fact of ally Manning's age than the giants made a mistake. That's what I think. Well, the Cowboys will be an interesting story. See, you'll Elliot will be interesting story and and I just I think the hangovers and the, you know, it's just never as easy the second time around. I know the the patriots get to go to Super Bowls after they've gone to a Super Bowl, but it's rare for most other teams. Most other teams when they when they go to Super Bowl when they win a Super Bowl, something happens the following year and they just don't get there again and Minnesota's gonna be very intriguing. I mean, they got within a whisker of going to the Super Bowl and just talking on the NFC side. Now they got within a whisker of going to the Super Bowl and and then they got rid of all their quarterbacks and they started all over again. That's very intriguing to me, and they're playing in the same division as the Green Bay Packers who basically the windows closing there on on Aaron Rodgers, and I think he's aware of it. And so watching them in the same division is going to be interesting. And then there's the Rams and other teams. Let's talk about the team that lost the Super Bowl and and I will ask this question, especially Mr Ryan, who's a bus Donen loop l. green our producer play the following exchange between Dan Shaughnessy columnists for the Boston Globe and head coach Bill Belichick about why Malcolm Butler basically did not play against the eagles all about this year. And I wouldn't be doing my job. I didn't ask about last year last year last year on focused on last year. What about the fact that everywhere we go folks want to ask about sports coaches, players, university, or sports fan thought about the mobile months ago, you're going to be any more explanation about why getting play. Focused on training camp. Differently. Drank. If we're getting started, we're working on that right now.."
