Kinda surprised by Marcus Thomas being cut, since we have some injuries at the DT position.

Glad we don't have to bear with DJ anymore. Also Greg lost in the numbers game.

Sure sounds like the Giants are in market to trade for an OL...

How is Greg Jones at LB? I'm curious because the Raiders are lacking depth at LB in the worst way. Thanks.

Ware isn't a surprise at all IMO. When all you can do is block on passing plays...

Tim Hightower was cut by the Redskins. If healthy he can be a good addition.

Yeah, I'm cool with this. Kevin Gilbride may be clinically depressed, but the rest of us will be just fine.

Finally D.J Ware got cut,oh my days he was awful. Surprised Greg Jones got cut.Gilbride always use to call the most annoying play - the shotgun draw. Bring in hightower, he cant be worse than Ware. I never like seeing a player cut because i cant imagine the distress but i just never liked ware.

Herzlich- Some report he has been pushing for Starting MLB. From what I have seen he flashes and looks quicker than Blackburn. Many suggest and I agree matter of when, not if he takes over Starting MLB.

But you have to realize that Giants to not run traditional 3 LBs and vary our packages depending on the situation.

Heard y'all waived David Douglas. This is probably a guy we will seriously look at bringing in. I know some of you were high on him. What can you tell a rival fan about him?

Flashed in camp some. Hampered by some injuries which caused his to miss some games. He was solid in there at WR and PR in the last two games.

Cool. Thanks for the info. Sounds like he could at least come in and help on special teams and help our WR depth a little.
