    I still kind of wish we had drafted this guy in '05. Anyone seen him play this preseason? He is averaging 5.3 YPC and has 5 TD's on 41 carries, last night against New England he had 15 carries for 130 yards and 2 TD's. The guy is 6'4'' 265 pounds and ran a 4.5 40 in college.

    The Giants picked him up in the 4th round in '05, we took Morency in the 3rd round before Jacobs was taken and Mathis in the 4th round after Jacobs was taken. I'm not complaining about the picks we made or anything, but I really like Jacobs and hoped somehow he ended up a Texan in that draft.

    Good to see him finally get a chance. I thought we was going to tear it up at Auburn but he never got his chance behind cadillac and ronnie. Can't say I'm mad we didn't get him just because it was hard to tell how he would do in the NFL.

    His only flaw I remember from last year was that he ran standing up. If he can remember to bend his knees, he could be what the Giants were looking for in Ron Dayne, and eventual replacement for Tiki.
