Season's End

The NFL has wound up its regular season. Both of my teams had miserable years and are out of the playoffs. The Giants managed to win their final game, but thankfully the Colts won too, so the G-Men held on to the second overall pick in the draft. The Jets got crushed by the Pats, as usual.

Big Blue already has a new general manager and will be getting a new coach soon. I want a new Bill Parcells. Though I'd gladly take the old Bill Parcells if someone could coax him out of retirement. As for that draft pick, most of the mocks have the Giants taking a QB... but we still have Eli, and we don't even know what Davis Webb will be yet. I'd prefer to see them trade down for multiple picks, and maybe take that stud running back out of Penn State. Let Eli play another year and bring Webb along before bringing in another QB.

The Jets, on the other hand, should take Baker Mayfield if he's still on the board.

As for the playoffs, I don't much care. In the AFC, I will be rooting for whoever is playing against Evil Little Bill and the Pats. In the NFC, no strong preference, but maybe a slight inclination toward the Saints. Love the city of New Orleans, and Drew Brees has been a class act.

I'll start by saying I'm not a Giants fan, so i don't really have the attachment to Eli or the faith in him. I really think he's declining, but agree that he probably has a year or two left.

Giants do need a running back. All of those passing options are wasted if you can't keep the defense honest. I strongly believe they need help at O line. Maybe more than the running back help. Eli ran for his life while the backs ran into walls.

As for the Jets, let Forte go. Get a few decent receivers in there to help out whoever they play at quarterback. I honestly feel like they have a moe solid base than the Giants, right now.

By the way, I'm a Falcons fan. I just want my team to remember how to score. Same talent as last year, much different result. It hasn't been a good first year for Sarkisian, but I hope he'll pick it up. I don't expect to go past this round of the playoffs, though. The Rams are tough this year.
