Unhappy Giants Receivers: Worst In Modern Times

Are you aware of the fact that the Giants' wide receivers have only one touchdown catch the entire season? It was by Tim Carter (now on injured reserve) on September 19 against Washington.

Unless the Giant wide receivers somehow catch four against Dallas Sunday night, the Giants will break the record for fewest TD catches by a team's wide receivers in a 16-game season, which is five by several teams, most recently last year's Eagles - and if they don't catch any against the Cowboys, it will be the fewest since the 1945 Steelers went the entire season without throwing a touchdown pass to anybody, a wide receiver or otherwise.

And the Eagles think they have problems with T.O. out!

Chill, Kornby, chill!

If by eventual SB winner Falcons, you're willing to wait till 2010, cool.
The Falcons could win it this year, but I think you'd have to have a lot of falling down on the AFC side of the ball...

The GIants receivers are slow and they drop too many easy catches. That is just basic stuff.

The Giants have some nice role players at wideout, but neither one of them is a game-breaker type that teams need to worry about doubling.

Shockey could be a good one if re-dedicates himself on the game. He has seemed rather disinterested in the couple of games I have seen the Giants play this year and he seems to drop passes due to lack of concentration.

I've also heard it on Monday Night Football when the players announce themselves. Another popular announcement is for them to clue the viewers in on what high school they attended. I could care less. The group of guys I get together and watch MNF with has a nice bet on the issue. The guy closest to the number of players (by number) that announce their high school eats/drinks for free. :cheers:

I thought the "few" guys who only said high school meant that they never went to College. ? They just came in as a walk on or something?

Nah, as far as I know Eric Swann is the only guy to never play college football and make it to the pros in recent memory. I am sure there were some way back in the day that did not play college ball, but since the league has the rule that you have to be 3 years removed from high school anybody with any kind of ability plays college ball of some sort. I suspect they are saying their high school because they are trying to be cute. One guy even said his elementary school on MNF a couple of weeks ago.

Micheal Irvin is the first guy I heard talkng about DA U on ESPN.
