And any chance the Giants had of making the playoffs was in DIRE need of a spark on offense. This might be it.
I'm just calling him overhyped by the fact that he was drafted where he was when I think Roethlisberger and Phillips will pan out to be better QBs. Personally I think he was the #1 pick because of the last name.
Of course, I just saw him play live twice, I am not an NFL scout, I have not seen him at practice, and I have not seen him, Phillips and Roethlisberger practice side by side. Just my opinion here. I am just looking at it from the perspective of what I saw from my limited time at the games, from what I have seen of the other QBs, and the number of picks we gave up for him.
For the sake of the Giants, I hope that he plays as well as his brother being what we gave up/passed up on for him (could have picked Phillips/Taylor/Winslow/Roy Williams/Roethlisberger, 1st next year (with the team record it will be high), 3rd in 2004, and 5th next year).
