I wasn’t sure how to title this post, but hey, it’s slow and news is news. One interesting point that PFT raises is the fact that coaches and players are not allowed to contact each other in the lockout, but the Giants get one exception to this clause, which is the case of Tom Coughlin and son-in-law Chris Snee. The league will not penalize Coughlin and Snee from communicating with each other, but expects them not to discuss the labor situation of anything of that nature.
Like I said it’s a slow Giants news until the lockout nonsense ends.
Also in Giants world:
Shaun O’hara had this to say about the lockeout (from big blue view via the Blue Screen)
“After agreeing to a weeklong extension in an attempt to come to a fair agreement with NFL, we realized that the owners do not have an interest in agreeing to a fair deal with the players,” O’Hara told the Daily News in an e-mail tonight. “Therefore we have decided that the NFLPA will no longer represent the players in collective bargaining with the NFL.
“It was evident to us that the owners had no intentions of sharing vital information when entering into a ‘partnership’ that a ‘Collectively Bargained Agreement’ represents. We will now move forward with involvement from the court system to reach an agreement
Former Giants Personnel Director John Boisture dies at age 79.
Profootballtalk is tracking which draft prospects have visisted with teams: http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/03/09/2011-draft-visits-and-workouts-tracker/ and not surprisingly no one knows who the Giants have visited with yet. Man they are good at witholding information.
John Mara is doing a lot of talking, but I’m not going to link to any of that becauase who cares?
I mentioned in my last post that I”m the editor over at NFLmocks, but I have a soft spot for writing about the Giants so I couldn’t resist helping Andrew out.
But feel free to shoot me some draft prospect questions/profile/scouting reports requests and I’ll see what I can do.
One player I think fans need to have their eye on is LB Martez Wilson. Genuinely considered a second round prospect by some and an inside linebacker by others, he’s a player the Giants might not be able to resist in the draft. The LB build like a small Defensive End had the fastest ever 40 time for a linebacker at the combine, and is a player that fits best to me as a 4-3 OLB. The Giants love those High potential players (drafted J.P.P, Will Beatty, showed a ton of interested in Darrius Heyward Bey) and Wilson is certainley that, plus he plays a position of need for the Giants.
My profile for him is here
