    what good did it do them when he lead the league? They finished dead last in the division with 5 wins. Idiotic movie to use a pick that high on a RB, I don't care if it's King Henry

    And Darnold would have led them to more than 5 wins? Last I checked there are 53 dudes on a football team. If youíre relying on a rookie to turn your team around singlehandedly thatís probably not gonna go well for you.

    I donít know this logic seems flawed. By that logic any player taken in the top 10 that doesnít immediately turn around their team as a rookie would be an idiotic move.

    By definition getting the #2 pick means the team is trash.

    What position could they have drafted that year that would have produced more wins and had more of an impact?

    Barkley is a good piece, but you still need a good team and a coach.

    Look at the jags this year. They drafted Trevor Lawrence and they might not get 5 wins this year.

    I think Barkley was a good pick for jersey and ticket sales. Realistically some moves are about driving revenue than immediate winning.

    Barkley hasn't been a problem, he's definitely a good running back but, aside from his speed on some of those long runs down the sidelines, he hasn't looked as special as he was expected to either. He's never been much better than average between the tackles and, while he has decent hands and had a lot of receptions, he hasn't been a McCaffrey/Kamara type of force as a receiver either.

    His all purpose yardage total was mostly a result of the Giants spamming him to justify the pick. Even taking out positional value, I think he was still over drafted at 2.

    I wouldn't want to trade for an injury prone and expensive back ($10 M cap hit this season).

    Bradley Bozeman is playing better than Ryan Jensen.

    Sadly, we'll likely lose Boze as well.

    2018 was a good QB draft. Even if they didn't want Lamar or Josh Allen, teams offered to trade up with the Giants but they refused all offers because they were so set on taking a RB. Either of those options would have been much more impactful.

    It worked out OK with Lamar in 2018.

    So what combination of Gus, Marlon, Clark, Andrews or Oweh are you giving up to keep Jensen at what Tampa paid and Zeus Jr? Because you don't just get to keep those guys and everything else too.

    They were hoping that fixing the running game would propell them back to the playoffs. But Eli was done, their line was so-so at best, their defense was below average. What they should have done was trade back and start filling the holes with younger, better talent. But they did the quick fix instead of doing the long term fix and they are a 6-11 team because of it.

    Eli was about to retire - maybe they could've gone with a QB? A little more important than a RB... and that's why they've lost more games than any other team in the league since then
