Ernie Palladino makes some great points in his article today: Lessons of the NFL Lockout
Here’s a snippet:
"For years, the public and the media have been buying into the contention that the average career span in the NFL is 3.2-3.5 seasons. Tell a fib enough times, and get people to believe it, and it morphs into the truth. No denying the shelf-life of an NFL player is roughly that of an apple. But bite into the real numbers and the fact is that the union has long been practicing its own version of voodoo economics. The number includes players that never make a roster."
The rest of the best in today’s Giants news is after the jump
"…wide receivers Victor Cruz, Duke Calhoun, Michael Clayton, Darius Reynaud and Samuel Giguere; tight end Kevin Boss; offensive lineman David Diehl; and quarterbacks Sage Rosenfels and Manning."
"The Giants will need to make a move in free agency if they want to establish a presence on the strongside opposite of Michael Boley, who led all Giants linebackers in tackles throughout the 2010 season."
"The big question is, should the Giants look at him? Should the Giants sign him? The Giants don’t really need a receiver. You can argue that they need a bigger red zone target, but in terms of receivers, the Giants are set."
