And it's unbelievable for me which two they are.

The head-to-head matchup in November is going to be gut-wrenching.

I didn't think you cared about the rams any more since they left town, I think about it sometimes, if The Bears left town over night and moved to LA would I still be a fan?

I'm not a fan. I despise the organization.

You disagree? I thought my point was made very clear for me by the Giants themselves this year. No point in drafting a RB in the 1st. None. Maybe if it's your only piece needed for a SB run.

Did they not need a QB more than an RB? Maybe even a CB? That defense looks suspect as hell.

And sure he is good. Looking at stats, hes about as good as Kareem Hunt (drafted 3 round), Isaiah Crowell (undrafted), Matt Breida (undrafted), etc.

There is no other skill position in the NFL today that has as many top performers that were undrafted or taken after round 1. Unless you really thought you were a top RB away from the Superbowl, it takes serious incompetence to take one in the first round.

There's a larger inventory of qb's though. The stats don't accurately define what his worth to a team is, and further what he can do for a good qb with their receiving corp. On a side not, I enjoy this NYG demise and especially Manning's

There are very few starting caliber level QBs in the NFL. As best I'm aware, none in top 10 were undrafted, unlike the RB group.

I'm curious how you would define Barkley's worth to the Giants if not with empirical data. It's certainly not reflected in the win column.

And yes, he would play well with a good QB. Which is my exact point. RBs don't definite franchises and make them "go" in today's NFL. And those that come close are often times not a top draft pick.

I think SB's running back skills are generational, but he's as close to a position less skill player the NFL has seen. His yards after the catch will be heroic. I seriously can see him having multiple 150 yd games in total offense....some 200+. I would never have passed on him given the chance, never.

I am not going to value their pick based on 5 games; that's just shortsighted. Of course they need a QB, and their likely pick will afford them a shot at one, or some OL presence. I actually think Kaepernick would be a great short term option right now...good mobility in collapsing pockets.

Oh, and if memory serves, lot's of great NFL qb's were not drafted high.
