Dear New York Giants Fans Unite San Francisco,
Talk about the wheels coming off the bus, but then again 9-7 should get you in the playoffs. But the world has changed and unfortunately it doesn't seem like the Giants coaching staff is going to. Unless Coughlin loses Fewell or Gilbride to a head coaching position they’ll be coming back next season. Sigh…There is hope Killdrive won’t return when the Bills interview everyone in the NFL and still can’t get anyone to commit. The Wilson family (owners of the Bills) love Gilbride and tried to steal him during after the 2008 super bowl run. Fingers crossed.
I've attached the Giants season statistics to this email in PDF for your review. What a dumpster fire the second half of the season turned into.
Thank you to everyone that made this another amazing season for our New York Giants Fans Unite San Francisco meetup group. The bar was always a sea of blue and high with energy. Just because the Giants season is over doesn't mean you can’t come down each Sunday to watch the playoffs or during the year come down to root on other New York professional sports teams.
Next year schedule isn't out but the NFL did release the teams the G-Men will be playing. No bay area New York Football Giants games next season (maybe playoffs) but there is one game only a short trip south in San Diego.
Home: Green Bay, Minnesota, Seattle, Denver and Oakland
Away: Chicago, Detroit, Carolina, Kansas City, San Diego
Here is the unofficial Giants' unrestricted/restricted/exclusive rights free agent list:
UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
(Comments via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPN NY)
T Will Beatty -- Hard to find starting left tackles. Might be most important Giants free agent.
DE Osi Umenyiora -- Won't rule out return but sounds ready to move on.
G Kevin Boothe -- Versatile and solid. Giants should bring him back.
TE Martellus Bennett -- Should only get better but will another team offer more money?
S Kenny Phillips -- Would like to see him back but for right price.
LB Chase Blackburn -- Solid vet is an asset but is NYG ready to go with Mark Herzlich?
LB Keith Rivers -- When healthy, showed glimpses of speed and athleticism.
K Lawrence Tynes -- Best NFL kicker until shaky finish. Should still be re-signed.
DT Rocky Bernard -- Cheap and reliable but Marvin Austin needs snaps.
WR Domenik Hixon -- Solid veteran provides depth and a punt returner.
WR Ramses Barden -- Shined in start vs. CAR but didn't get many other opportunities.
QB David Carr -- Knows system and works well with Eli.
TE Travis Beckum -- Injuries hampered Giants career.
T Sean Locklear -- Great until suffering ugly knee injury.
CB Justin Tryon -- Invite to camp?
RB Kregg Lumpkin -- Saw some third-down duties.
DT Shaun Rogers -- Blood clot kept him out of '12.
CB Brian Witherspoon -- Has to come back from another ACL tear.
RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
WR Victor Cruz -- Time to pay the salsa.
S Stevie Brown -- The surprise of 2012 could be starting safety next season.
RB Andre Brown -- On the mend after broken leg derailed best season.
TE Bear Pascoe -- Versatile and needed for blocking.
RB Ryan Torain -- Didn't play much.
EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS
DE Adrian Tracy -- 'Yosi' (Young Osi) might see bigger role.
C Jim Cordle -- Good for depth/special teams.
DE Justin Trattou -- Giants like his potential.
