    According to Jim Thomas, the talks with McClure to this point haven't been anything serious.

    Heck, I would rather take a chance on Anthony Gonzalez than overpay for Mario Manningham that can run a route tree.


    Manningham's success is largely due to the Giants throwing the ball more than 95% of teams and he was the only vertical threath they had.....on any other team his stats take a big hit...
    I guess we don't need him then, since we have so many vertical threats.

    2009: Rams 543 Pass attempts, Giants 542(17th most attempts)
    2010: Rams 590 Pass attempts, Giants 539 (17th most)
    2011: Giants 589 Pass attempts (6th most), Rams 549.

    Manningham had a down year last year, I believe due to injuries. In 2010, he had 60 catches for 944 yards, 9 tds. In 2009 57 catches for 822 and 5 tds. More yards than any receiver on our team by far.

    He has issues, that's whats keeping him from being a #1 WR already, but the potential is there imo. Even if he's not a real 1 or 2 WR, he's still a much bigger threat than anyone we have or anyone we could sign. I don't understand why you'd rather have someone like Gonzalez or Doucet. Obviously I don't want to overpay, but if the price is right....

    If he doesn't get offered what he wants, then signing here for 1 year would make a lot of sense. I can only think of Jacksonville having a worse WR group. Here he'd have a chance to show he can be a #1, and then get his big contract.

I'll make a judgement on Robinson when he does it on his own and good luck doing that with Jacksonville.

    I totally agree, rammiser. I want to add to that, but I can't.

    He may not be a top 10 WR in the NFC East alone.....speed guy, with avg hands, avg routes...

    Price is wrong for us...he wants too much , he wouldn't sign anywhere for a one year deal unless he was extremely overpaid...

    I have watched every single Giants game, and I think I know WRs pretty well, Manningham is a WR 2/3 -- Meaning he can be a temporary 2 or everyday #3....

    His value was in when you don't have to pay alot for his service....The big catch he made has given him extra PR....

    Doucet can run a route tree for alot less money...

    Scott Zolak of 98.5 Patriots all access tweeted Thursday morning, that Danny Amendola was spotted at Patriots club headquarters last night.? The article is in PFT if you need some confirmation.

    Bingo, you hit the nail on the head.

    There are about three different versions of this story. One is confirming he was there,one is denying he was there, one is saying he was only at a bar in Boston. I guess we'll wait and see what happens.

    OT Eric Winston is vising with the Chiefs today, and is apparently doing so in a red polo. It's said playing for a contender is a big issue for him.

    It sounds as if Packers C Scott Wells is coming for a visit.

    I think this guy is definately signing with the Rams....He was looking for somewhere else...I don't know why he didn't want to stay in GB , but I am pretty sure he will be a Ram by day end...

    Good center to have interest in. Much better solution than McClure.

    Per Will Brinson: Wells gets knocked for his size and age, and that's fine. But really helped groom Rodgers, played with Favre. Is tough as nails.

    Hmmm Miami plays 3-4 and he plays end there. Seems to fit the same mold as Jason Jones. Think we also still need a sloppy big space eater.

    Wells would be a nice pickup.

    Langford is a pretty good Plan B if Jones does not sign.
