Will Allen 5'10" 196
William Peterson 6'0" 200
Gibril Wilson 6'0" 197
Brent Alexander 5'11" 200


Larry Fitzgerald 6'3" 221

Look for Antonio Gates to light up the scoreboard in week 3. I'm predicting a multiple touchdown game.


Hmmmmm....so who can cover Fitz?

Ed Reed 5'11" Samari Rolle 6'1" 206
Dunta Robinson 5'10" Marcus Coleman 6'2" 210
Ronde Barber 5'10" Juran Boldin 6'3" 210
Troy Polamalu 5'10" weighs 212 pounds
Terrence McGee 5'9" Troy Vincent 6'1" 200
Nate Clements 6'0" weighs 210 pounds, see above
Marcus Trufant 5'11" Michael Bouleware 6'2" 223
Antoine Winfield 5'9" Darren Sharper 6'2" 210
Brian Dawkins 5'11" Michael Lewis 6'1" 222
Dre Bly 5'9" Boss Bailey 6'3" 235

According to your logic Fitz will score a lot of TDs this year.

I know that you signed Boldin to a 4 year contract and want to make yourself feel better so I will stop now :-°


You just pulled a list of all-pros, talent does play a role for some of these guys.. :-° I bolded the big man in their respective secondaries for your reference, to drill into your head how small Giant's defensive backfield. Notice how they are all bigger than 6'0" 200 NYG STRONG SAFETY.

My point was that there is not a single "big" guy in the entire Giant's secondary. That is just not the case for most teams in the NFL.. Not like you actually need a tangible reason why Fitz won't perform as well versus Buffalo/Baltimore/Philly/etc.. but there it is.

What do I know, the Giant's defense/secondary had nothing to do with Fitz's 13 catch game right? Fitz is good for 200+ catches this year and is entirely over his inconsistent rookie campaign.

Boss Bailey is NOT going to cover Larry Fitzgerald. LOL.

What happened to Giants' FS James Butler 6'3" 210, CB CURTIS DELOATCH 6'2" 217 - they have about as much chance of covering Fitz as your guys Boss Bailey, Michael Lewis and Juran Boldin.

btw, that Gerbil guy is a pretty good playmaker regardless of his size.

It's nice to know that someone can admit that they are wrong. Very big of you Ken. ;-D

I think people will find out soon that there really isn't anyone who will cover Fitzgerald 1 on 1.

This is a pretty funny thread to me - you can tell who the people are who drafted Boldin from the ones who drafted Fitz.

There were many threads on this topic this offseason and since the consensus was so split on who would have the better yr, the smart money was on the guy who could be had cheaper in a draft.

Amen. I was thrilled when I saw so many people drafting Boldin high, like 4th or 5th round. Just didnt make sense with Larry's talent, and Denny Green's liking to him. I mean Boldin's a good WR, but you dont use a #2 overall on a WR unless you intend for him to be your Moss/Owens/Harrison.
