We have always routinely gotten by with nobody's at the TE position. Last year TBU was an outcast by the cowboys. The year before that Jake Ballard was a practice squad player that came out of nowhere. Hell even Bear Pascoe was a cast off from the 49yers and he player decently for the Giants.

As long as we have the best TE coach in the NFL with Mike Pope, we will just be fine at TE. Robinson has had 1 year under Mike pope, the same amount of time Jake Ballard has had and he is infinitely more athletic than Ballard. Lets just see what Mike Pope's magic works out before we call doom and gloom.


I don't think anyone is calling doom and gloom. I just don't think the Giants are ready to hand over the reigns to Robinson. Don't forget that Bennett was still a 2nd round draft pick and had great talent, it just didn't work out for him in Dallas. Also, Ballards break out year we had Beckhum who was supposed to be our starting TE that year but got injured. All I'm saying is that TE is a need and I'd be shocked if we didn't bring in a veteran to at least compete.


We are not bringing in a veteran TE. The third TE will either be Larry Donnell from the practice squad, or the unknown guy that Pope is apparently raving about.


I hate to say I told you so but....


Why bump the thread just to say that? Just knowing you're right isn't enough? The credit of other posters on a football forum is important to you?

No worries, I can admit when I'm wrong.

I don't dislike this move, I just think it's kind of a weird fit, considering Myers isn't much of a blocker according to everything I've read. Sounds like he'll do all of his damage on short to intermediate routes. However, we have the best TE coach in the league, so I'm sure we wouldn't have made this move if Pope didn't want him.

Yea. I clearly meant it as a joke. I just think this move boils down to the fact that at least now we have a proven TE on the roster. This guy caught 80 balls on a bad raiders team last year. We have passive as a blocking TE. I'm excited to see what this kid and do on a good team with a legit qb throwing to him.
