Right?

I saw the Babin thread first and was like "Oh!"

Then I looked down and saw Okoye waived and was like "OH!"

The I wished I could look down and see a "Carr waived" thread. Would've been the trifecta.

Schiano cut him from the Bucs earlier. I guess him and Babin can go sit down next to VY now.

I heard Corey Bradford was recently cut from his flag football team at the local Y.

Now all we need is for Carr to get cut and well have the triumvirate

Alright now, lets not lump Corey Bradford in with these guys. I have a soft spot for Bradford. We knew what his issues were when we got him from Green Bay and all he ever did was run fast for us. Hell of a nice guy too.

That's the only guarantee he came with. He'd be under the ball and there was a chance he'd catch it. Nobody ever said #8 (aka "The Checkdown Master") would be looking down the field and throw it to him.

The title spelled his name wrong. It's Ok0ye - as in he's a zero in the middle.

Me too. Although, DJ wasn't very good as a 4-3 LB. It wasn't until they switched to a 3-4 where he began to flourish. I wanted him at the time though and still do, especially with our issues at ILB now

Would be nice to see him paired with Cush

We could have had Patrick Willis also. He was taken one pick after Okoye.

I wonder how many players can say that their best stretch of pro football was the first four games of their career? Okoye had four sacks after week four in 2007.

I'm still amazed when I see the Giants on TV and see Carr standing there collecting a paycheck. Good thing Eli is a pretty healthy QB.

I wouldn't wish for an injury to Eli but I am not above wishing for some "circumstance" that might come about to force the Giants to start Carr for 3-4 weeks. I'd love to see that. I think it would be interesting to see if he's changed even one tiny bit in the years he's sat on the sidelines. I mean, I don't doubt for a second that he knows their offense inside and out. In all that time how could he not? And it's not like they run some little rookie-baby offense that's designed to spoon feed him the game at this level like the crap Palmer gave him here.

Basically I'd like to see if all that time and practice could overcome his natural affinity for bugging out and checking down.

Is Okoye still a teenager?
