This is how Favre was supposed to return...
Don't get the wrong idea about this, but with Omenyura gone the Giants are a little bit desperate for bodies on the line.
$8 mil for one season and he hasn't been training for the last however many months, seems like a long shot.
I see the Giants failing to make the playoffs this year. Not just because of this, but more a general feeling.
Don't do it Giants! I will do the job for $4million.:yes:
I think even before the injury the Giants' season depended on what the offense does - if it explodes like it did during the playoffs, I think they'll be just fine. If the offense doesn't show up, then it's going to be a long season for my dad...
I can't remember another year when the defending Super Bowl Champs seemed so vulnerable. Maybe the Steelers after their latest win, or the Ravens after theirs. I mean, is there anyone picking the Giants to go back?
Nothing against them. They put together a playoff run for the ages last year, and it was an absolute treat to watch, but I just cannot see them doing much of anything this year.
The Giants in general, as a team, are quite fragile. From their coach, to Eli, etc. The injuries and key departures are only going to make it worse. If Strahan comes back and behaves like a good leader - it can go a long ways toward a good season for them.
